This Luke Skywalker action figure was released in
2013 in The Black Series.
Hasbro gave the figure twelve joints and included
five accessories (blue lightsaber, lightsaber hilt, medal of yavin, sleeveless plastic vest, blaster).
Here is what we noticed when we took a closer look at the figure:
- This Luke Skywalker was released individually carded
Luke's Medal Of Yavin fits well around the neck, and it's easily removable
The lightsaber fits well into both hands
There is a hole in the belt where the non-ignited lightsaber hilt can be plugged in
The blaster fits very well into the right hand, and it fits OK into the left
The blaster can be stowed away in the holster
The yellow vest is removable, but because the yellow sleeves are painted onto the arms, it would look strange taking it off the figure
Despite no joints in the ankles, Luke balances out nicely without needing help from a display stand
Out of all the figures Hasbro could have updated sculpt-wise, picking this version of Luke feels like an odd choice
The articulation details are as follows: ball-jointed neck, 2 ball-jointed shoulders, 2 ball-jointed elbows, 2 swivel wrists, swivel waist, 2 swivel legs, 2 ball-jointed knees
Luke Skywalker is awarded a medal for his part in destroying the Death Star.
