MORE INFORMATION

  • This Black Series Luke Skywalker (Heir To The Empire) figure was released single boxed in March 2021
  • The figure is a realistic interpretation of Luke Skywalker from the Timothy Zahn novel trilogy
  • Luke Skywalker was packaged in a comic book inspired box which shows strips from the comic book adoptation of Heir To The Empire
  • The figure is a repaint of the Black Series Luke Skywalker (Dagobah) figure
  • Luke came with a blaster, a lightsaber with removable blade and an Ysalamiri creature
  • The blaster fits perfectly into Luke's right hand and it's possible to place the index finger on top of the trigger
  • The figure is able to hold the lightsaber well in both hands
  • The blue blade can be detached from the hilt
  • The Ysalamiri creature has no articulation and it can be placed around Admiral Thrawn's neck loosely
  • The head sculpt and the photo real print on the face look good
  • Unfortunately the figure doesn't match the comic book/novel source material well
  • In the comic book strips on the packaging Luke is seen wearing a long black robe and he had a belt with pouches around the waist, both accessories which are not included with this release
  • The Zahn trilogy is set after the events in Return Of The Jedi, so why did Hasbro use a Luke Skywalker head from the Empire Strikes Back era and not the more approriate and older looking Return Of The Jedi sculpt for this figure?
  • It feels that this release could have been executed better with a bit more care and a slightly higher budget

Luke Skywalker Video Review

PACKAGING TEXT

Fiver years after the destruction of the Death Star, Luke Skywalker fears there is no hope as the remnants of the Imperial fleet are readied for war under the command of Grand Admiral Thrawn.

Using Ysalamiri to sever a developing Jedi clone's connection to the Force allowed mentally stable Jedi clones to be created - a discovery Thrawn would use in his war against Luke Skywalker and the New Republic.
