MORE INFORMATION

Luke Skywalker in Imperial Guard (Coruscant Guard) disguise was released individually carded in The Shadows Of The Empire assortment in 1996. The figure has the for 1996 usual six joints (head, 2 arms, waist, 2 legs). Luke can stand safely by himself without falling over, and the hard-plastic cape plugs nicely into Skywalker's back and the taser staff fits into both hands. The helmet fits over Luke's head, but unfortunately it doesn't cover it all the way and the neck will show underneath. The paint job is kept very basic and you will not find any kind of dirt on the figure. The head is the basic "early 90ties Mark Hamill" head sculpt which looks pretty off. In 1996 this might have been a decent figure, but molding techniques and advancements in tooling have improved so much that this figure looks pretty outdated.

PACKAGING TEXT

The Empire's victory in the Battle of Hoth has brought hard times for the Rebel Alliance. Han Solo has been frozen in carbonite by Darth Vader, and two huge bounties have been placed on the head of Luke Skywalker. The Emperor wants him alive, but Prince Xizor , underlord of the most powerful criminal organization in the galaxy, wants him dead. Worse still is that the diabolical Xizor is holding Princess Leia Organa prisoner in his castle on the Imperial Center of Coruscant. this is a tactical maneuver, part of a larger master plan to lure Luke Skywalker into his castle where he can be easily eliminated -- the key step in Xizor's plan to replace Darth Vader at the Emperor's side. unaware of this danger, the young Jedi and Lando Calrissian sneak into Imperial City hoping to rescue Leia. Simply laying foot on Coruscant is a dangerous act for these two: high on the Empire's list of most-wanted outlaws, they could easily be recognized and captured -- or assassinated. Disguising themselves as beggars, they "borrow" the armored uniforms from a pair of elite Coruscant stormtroopers. These troopers are some of the Empire's finest, selected as home guards for the wealthiest and most cultured city in the galaxy. Joining forces with Chewbacca and Dash Rendar, Skywalker and Calrissian attempt to infiltrate Xizor's nearly impenetrable stronghold and rescue the princess.
