Luke Skywalker (Death Star Trash Compactor Set #1) Star Wars SAGA Series 2002

Luke Skywalker


  • Luke Skywalker (Death Star Trash Compactor) was released in December 2002/January 2003's Star Wars SAGA series as a Walmart exclusive
  • The figure was part of the Death Star Trash Compactor set #1 of #2 - which also included a figure of Han Solo and the bottom part of the Dianoga trash monster
  • Luke can hold the blaster only loosely in his left hand
  • The figure is sculpted very scene specific - the right hand is reaching for the throat - trying to get the Dianoga Trash Monster off of him
  • Luke's eyes are shut and the mouth is wide open (trying to breath!)
  • The belt is not removable and the holster is non-functional
  • The armor was given a dirty look with various black spots on it
  • Luke Skywalker fits perfectly into the included Trash Compactor base - but he can also stand well on his own (the figure has the typical peg holes in both feet so he could be placed on a separate display stand)


Luke, Han, and Chewie infiltrate the Death Star to free Princess Leia. While making their escape, they dive down a garbage chute and become trapped in a trash compactor with a hungry dianoga. Then the walls begin to close in on them, and our heroes are caught in a tight squeeze!
