Hard to imagine that at one time there was virtually just one pilot figure made for all of Star Wars, that figure being X-Wing Pilot Luke. This figure is a fine example of Kenner quality however, which does make me wonder if this figure was the only pilot we really ever needed.
This figure has a lot of detail both sculpted and painted. From the buttons on his chest-box thingy to the various belts and straps adorning the figure. You can even see the tip of the helmets visor just above Luke's brow, which is some fine work. Speaking of detail, the helmet's complete with Rebel symbols and a red stripe going down the center. I always have liked the Rebel buckets for some reason.
The only problem with this figure is also another element that makes it rather nice: he doesn't resemble Luke much. There's not much on the figure that makes it blatantly apparent this is Luke Skywalker. Which is good, because that more than makes him a good army builder. I'd say it'd look fine to have a dozen of these running around personally.
