Luke Bespin Orange Hair

Post by Gogsfett »

Hello folks,

I was just checking my Luke Bespins and can see one has distinctive orange hair..

Is this a rare variant?

Know the yellow and brown are more common

Thanks again if anyone can confirm.

Gordon

It is harder to find than the yellow and brown hair, but not as rare as farmer luke orange hair. I think value would be about £20 if there is no weapons with him :D

It is - the paint application is also very poor and they nearly always have wear so finding a mint one is tough - I've also found them in the past where the paint is still tacky to the touch!

They're not really any rarer or mmore valuable than the other 2 standard variants but a nice one to have.
