Collectible Time #27: 31" Luke and Han in Stormtrooper Guise

Came across these two, jumbo (31" tall) "Star Wars" figures at Toys"R"Us Express: a tad overpriced, in my opinion, but in that I hadn't seen them available in person before (and didn't felt so compelled to mail-order them), I boldly made the move.

In essence, Luke and Han are similar, representing the "Episode IV: A New Hope" sequence where our heroic rebels disguise themselves as Stormtroopers: a famous moment, yes, but also a clever stunt on Creative Designs' part to save a few bucks. After all, it's really just the heads of Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford planted on an already used body sculpt.

I'd have preferred representations reflecting the characters as otherwise featured, but oh, well, one can't have every wish fulfilled. All the same, these are fetching in size and will complement my other jumbo "Star Wars" pieces: the classic Stormtrooper, the orange and blue trimmed Clone Troopers and of course, the meanacing Dark Vader!!!
