SIDESHOW COLLECTIBLES ANNOUNCES LUKE SKYWALKER DELUXE FIGURE

In a bit of a surprise move, Sideshow Collectibles announced a sixth-scale Deluxe Luke Skywalker figure. The figure, which retails for $235, features Luke in his Return of the Jedi clothing and includes not only his Jedi robe but his Endor camo gear, including poncho, belt and a second sculpt wearing the non-removable Commando helmet.

The Deluxe version features:

  • ROTJ Luke sculpt
  • Luke wearing Commando helmet sculpt
  • Black Jedi outfit and robe
  • Belt with pouch and saber holder
  • Gray tunic
  •  Camouflage poncho and belt
  • Black boots
  • lightsaber (non-illuminated) with removable blade
  • DL-18 Blaster pistol
  • Eleven hands

Expected to ship Dec. 2018 – Jan. 2019, it’s available for pre-order now from Sideshow.

With Hot Toys version of ROTJ Luke already available for preorder (shipping Jun-Aug 2018) this was an unexpected figure from Sideshow, who have been focusing on non-human Star Wars characters lately, including the bounty hunter line and Darth Maul. Hot Toys it seems, however, has decided to release the Endor Luke as a separate figure although it has not been officially introduced yet.

This is a nice looking sculpt from Sideshow and the inclusion of what is, after all, a poncho and a helmet to get the Endor look makes for a nice package for the price. It all comes down to small preferences!
