I have to say in my honest opinion they are both are absolutely fantastic releases. Though I do have to say I do prefer the deluxe edition as it comes with some really nice accessories.

The likeness to Mark Hamill is outstanding and the detailing in his costume looks fantastic and fits very well.  I know with some figures in the 12″ scale that clothing items can be a bit too big, though Hot Toys doesn’t seem to have that problem.

I really love the poncho and scarf they look incredible. Having the hairpiece connecting by a magnet is a very smart idea as there would be no seam line which could look very distracting.

I’m a big fan of Luke’s different looks from Return of The Jedi which is slightly different versions of his Jedi Knight outfit. Hot Toys seems to have covered most of Return of the Jedi with the Deluxe edition. What with the interchangeable hairpiece and interchangeable hands. You could even recreate his look from the Sail Barge scene which is fantastic.

All the accessories look incredible and highly detailed and I can’t think of any accessory that’s missing from both editions, he comes with everything that’s needed.

Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait ill this time next year for him to be released. Though that does give me plenty of time to get this figures (especially the deluxe edition) as it’s an absolute must-have!
