I don't think it's the chest that makes Jedi Luke look odd.  It's the ball-jointed shoulders.  They're kind of bulbous and make him look musclebound.  But that's just the size of the joint making it ungainly.

I agree about Luke, I think they made him too big in the chest like he is pumped up or something, kind of reminds me of the POTF figs.  Leia definitely is better in person but the chain around the neck makes if look like she has no neck.  If you take this piece off she looks much better.  I think they did a great job with the Major Panno and Ewok figs.  The soft goods for Panno works well and I always like having more ewoks for a dio.

Found Luke, Leia and Malakili from this wave yesterday.

While I still think from an overall look they could still do a better job with the ROTJ Luke figure - there's something about it that seems slightly off - but all-in-all, this is definitely the best version of Luke in this outfit to date. The chest plate piece works really well. I'm definitely going to get a second one to open so I can have Luke displayed both ways.

The Slave Leia is fantastic! The two different sets of legs both work well and the photo below of Leia in the kneeling/sitting pose does not do the actual product justice. Like with the Luke, I plan on getting two of these to open just so I can have a sitting and a standing Leia. I gotta dig out my Vintage daius (sp?) for Jabba and put her with the Deluxe Jabba from 5-6 years ago.

An image has leaked out of Princess Leia in Slave outfit.  Check it out HERE.  This Leia features two seperate lower bodies.  One with full articulation, and the other in a kneeling/reclining pose.
