#37: Star Wars comic pack Luke Skywalker and Deena Shan

It seems that the only time I buy comics is when they are included with action figures. Thanks to the Star Wars comic packs, I have been amassing a collection of mostly Star Wars comics. So far, none have inspired me to go out and read more. When it comes to the Expanded Universe, I generally stick to the novels (although I haven't read anything past the Yuuzhan Vong thing) and cartoons. Oddly enough, this is the second comic pack to pair up Luke and Deena Shan. In the other one, they are disguised as Imperial officers. I got this set mainly because I liked the looks of the snazzy commando suits they are wearing. Aside from a couple pilots, I don't have any rebel trooper figures because I think they look somewhat unexciting. But these suits have style, they look good going up against Stormtroopers. They both have working holsters, and on the back of their suits there is a hose that goes from their belt to their back. I'm not sure what it's for, but I dig those kinds of details on figures.

From what I've seen of comic images of Deena Shan, she is an attractive woman, but her figure looks like she is wearing too much eyeliner. Oddly enough, in the comic that comes with this pack, it appears that the artist was tracing images of the blonde actress from Smallville for Deena's face. It was obvious enough for me to notice, and I don't even watch the show.

There's really only one thing wrong with this set, and it's that Luke comes with the wrong lightsaber. I don't know whose lightsaber this is, but it's not Luke's. As far as I can tell, this takes place between A New Hope and Empire, so he should have Anakin's old blue lightsaber. The one he does come with looks rather generic and somewhat like a flashlight. This isn't the first Luke figure I've bought that comes with the wrong lightsaber. Get with the program, Hasbro! I now have seven Lukes, four of them are based on movie apperances, and the other three are Expanded Universe versions. I think that means I have more figures of him than any other one character, except maybe Anakin/Vader.


  1. I want some Rebellion Logo knee cap covers!

  2. You and me both! The Rebel logo is also on the elbow pads and the shoulder pads. Coordination!
