    Alright, gonna start on Luke's outfit for the Force Awakens premiere-well, technically the pre-show, not the Christmas day show. Only have the one shot so far, let's see what I can come up with! 330fa3c9f1499a9089c44d6abe2abc4db9da7cca1ff2debbdff42bd2da665997_large.jpg

    The movie PREMIERES on Dec 18, not Christmas. So if you are wearing it then, it would be the premiere, not a PRESHOW.

    Looks warm enough though to be wearing in December . . . which of course is an added bonus ;)

    Looks warm enough :) and definately a cool robe. Luke looks like a old dude you wouldn't stress with.

    It looks like it's based on a standard Jedi Robe. Someone that has made a Jedi Robe or 2 could probably knock this out fairly quickly.

    The shirt looks like what he wore in ROTJ, but light.
    We need more pictures of the shirt, belt buckle and belt pouch.

    I guess the whole Luke is now Ben thing is gonna happen. I was hoping for that in Ep 10 and this be one last great adventure for our OT heroes but I guess it's not to be. Looks like Luke is retired and just looking for a Sith to stand in front of and die.

    One of the few not happy about Ep 7 :(

    Whoa whoa whoa, who said Luke's gonna be retired? He just looks his age. I fully expect us to see one epic force-fueled *-whopping from Master Skywalker, especially before Ep VIII.

    I hope so. Looks like Old Ben robes, not backside kicking 60 years young Jedi robes.

    I hope you are right, I really do but I am worried.

    Would love to see Luke really be the star and hand it off to the kids in Ep 10 but that's just me.

    Star Wars Episode 7: The Force Awakens

    Staring three unknwon characters and Han Solo.(The guy who did not want to do anymore Star Wars.)

    And special cameos by:

    Leia and Luke and maybe Lando in the second one.



    Sorry. Just a bit bitter about how TFA is shaping up:cry

    Right-thanks!

    I think you guys are right, a warm robe, to be sure. A fairly standard Jedi robe is gonna work just fine!

    Based on this one single pic, I agree.

    So, based on the only available picture, I make the assumption that this outfit consists of:

    -a floor-length robe of pale taupe/brown, with a v-opening almost to the waist
    -a white undershirt with a western yoke and a collar the same colour as the robe, same cut as his RoTJ outfit
    -shoulder armour, floor-length in white
    -Jedi robe of pale taupe/brown
    -mystery belt
    I am using the monk's robe(McCalls 4627) as his under robe, with some modifications. As the fabrics are non-stretchy, I will be utilizing the dickie idea for the collar. I am also using the patterns for the shoulder armour, dickie and robe from the obvious SW pattern set(Simplicity 5840). Still have to dye the fabric.

    Seems like you're in a flow ... and it's because you load your pictures directly onto the site without renaming them in a seperate photo-software is causing the angles ... it's somewhere incrypted in the thumbnails of the original picture ... however when you click them larger they load normal but super huge ... always best to resize your pictures to 827x620 at 100 dpi and renaming before uploading.

    I'm not entirely convinced the color is correct. Sometimes when they laser scan a character from a movie they dress them in either white or brighter colors cause it helps with the laser scan detail. Look at all the stacks of cameras around him. It might be a part of that process. I dunno, just spitballin here.

    I'm loving this build, but I'm thinking the same thing about the color. Just thinking about the trailer, when he puts his hand on Artoo, he's wearing a dark robe.

    If you know any spoilers, there are rumors as to what would explain this, but I'll just keep that to myself (since I'm too lazy to learn how to do spoiler tags).

    Whether it's just for motion capture or not, I like the way it looks in the original pic better. It gives him a more holy look. I'd go with what you were doing before.

    I agree with the scan theory that the colors are different. I remember seeing episode III behind the scenes stuff and I saw a complete Darth Vader costume that was white and off white.

    IMG_2279.JPG Finally got the robe dyed! And now that I take another look at Old Luke, I think he might be wearing a cloak, not a robe. Back to the sewing machine!

    Yeah, I would agree with that: Looks like Luke is wearing a cloak, not a robe, like he did in Jabba's palace in ROTJ. The big tip off to me for that is that brief shot in the last trailer you see of Luke putting his hand on R2.

    I know this is a crazy thought but this just hit me. What if this isn't Luke? Forgive me for the crazed fan theory and if this is confirmed to be Luke through other posts that I haven't read, but what if this is someone else? The only reason that I say this at all is because of his hand. I know that the whole prosthetic hand can change, maybe he needed a new one, maybe something happened to his old one, and also that special effects back then for a robotic hand all the time would have been a hassle. Yet his hand was made with a synthetic skin in ESB and ROTJ. He wears a black glove to cover the fraying wires and metal that were showing when his hand sustained a blaster shot in ROTJ, but he still had synthetic skin. So why would he go back to a bare metal hand? Maybe this was one of those "Just for the trailer" scenes that are common in movies, but it's still a thought I can't get rid of. Why would he wear two different robe/cloak styles? why would his hand be different? The cloaked figure also appears to be rather thin under that wardrobe. Maybe its just the angle he (or maybe even she?) is sitting at that makes him look thin, but so far that's 3 things that I notice that just seems off from the photo at the beginning.

    TL;DR What if it isn't Luke next to R2?? :eek Seriously though am I crazy or has anyone else thought this??

    I'm like 75% sure its Luke in the trailer, touching R2. The only thing throwing me off is the hand; everything else screams "Luke" to me: he's with R2D2, he has a robotic right hand, he's wearing a cloak, the voice over from Mark Hamill also is indicating it.

    I'm pretty sure Luke is wearing this outfit (from ROTJ), but in a white/cream color scheme instead with a longer outer tunic and tabard as a throw back to Old Ben plus his ROTJ belt over the obi and a cloak (a la Jabba's palace entrance also from ROTJ).

    vlcsnap-2015-09-17-18h14m04s990.png

    But that's all speculation from me. I could be completely wrong considering we have one leaked photo and a 2 second long clip of someone who MIGHT be Luke.

    The robotic hand looks awfuly sinister for a benevolent Jedi, still no where near a bad as the T800/Skeletor hand they gave Anakin at the end of AotC.

    my theory is, he pulled the fake skin off to remind him, if you go down the dark path he'll most likely end up like his father "suffering". Kinda like how Luke snaps out of his rage when he cuts off vaders hand then looks at his own robot hand...

    as for it being Luke with r2. It's pretty much been confirmed, if your check out the spoiler section. I haven't read too much in there but once I saw this scene I knew I had to answer it. And sure enough the scene is explained

    - - - Updated - - -

    The hand has a very ironman feel to me, I like it

    I like that thought, it definitely fits with ROTJ Luke's mindset. I have purposefully stayed away from all of the super spoiler areas so I figured it was probably explained somewhere. I also agree with the Iron Man feel, it looks awesome!
