Luke Skywalker is all set to head down to Tosche Station for a rendezvous with Biggs, Windy, Deak, and Fixer in this exclusive first look at the latest addition to Hasbro’s premium Black Series line. The young moisture farmer can cruise the dunes of the twin-sunned planet in his X-34 landspeeder.
A major upgrade over the old-school Luke/landspeeder combo, this insanely detailed, highly articulated 6-inch figure is fully accessorized for his Tatooine routine — macrobinoculars, lightsaber hilt, and slugthrower rifle, as well as floppy hat and goggles worn by Mark Hamill in scenes that George Lucas ultimately excised from Star Wars: A New Hope. Heck, all that’s missing is a womp rat.
The $59.99 set, which will arrive in stores this fall, will be among several new Hasbro toys on display at Star Wars Celebration. The fan-focused event runs Thursday through Sunday in Orlando and will include reveals of action figures and vehicles.
One of those will be the 6-inch Black Series version of Rey and her speeder from the opening moments of The Force Awakens.
As we previously showed you, there will also be deluxe 6-inch incarnations of figures based on Kenner’s original Star Wars toys from 1978 in vintage packaging, which will be released in conjunction with next month’s 40th anniversary of A New Hope, as well as Luke in his X-wing gear (below), which will be exclusively available at the convention.
