Star Wars was dear to me for a long time, but Lucasfilm tore that from me. Releasing sub-par movies and garbage TV shows along with Hasbro's penchant of giving us a slightly better versions of figures previously released bittered me to the franchise. I called it quits and moved onto other lines. Sure, I was tempted with The Vintage Collection and The Old Republic figures are amazing. I did eventually give in and decide on a small shelf of Jedi and Old Republic figures... and then The Black Series 6 inch line was announced. I immediately wrote off 3 3/4" Star Wars.
Luke in X-Wing gear is a classic Star Wars icon. First released in 1978 in the original Kenner line, X-Wing Luke has been sculpted and molded in plastic multiple times. This time in 6 inch scale. Complete with accessories, Luke sets the standard for the Black Series. Great likeness and appropriate gear.
Packed with his X-Wing helmet, DL-44 Blastech blaster pistol, and ignited blue lightsaber, Luke is ready to blow up the Death Star! The one feature that I really enjoy is the removable blade on the lightsaber. I love having that hilt on the belt! Such a good look for Luke! The helmet is well painted and comes across sharp while having a worn/dirty coloration to it. Is it a little strange I already want the ESB version of this outfit? With the thicker jump suit, gray gloves, and the weird boot on the other foot... Not to mention a grapple for the AT-AT!!!
Skywalker is highly articulated. But the articulation is where I have a complaint. No waist swivel. That's the only thing I can find to be negative about. Everything else made me completely geek out. I could spill more words onto this page, but I would just praise Luke from boots to helmet (although I would have loved a holster, but I'll have to wait for that ESB version for it!). I think you would rather just view some pics.
