Special Action Figure set of Lukes - all of these seem relevant for reasons.

- Jabba's Palace Luke (for your Skiff, Barge, or Adventure Set playset needs)
- X-Wing Pilot Luke (in case of TVC X-Wing re-issue perhaps?)
- Stormtrooper Luke (to go with that new Target exclusive Stormtrooper Han... and something else? :-X)

I'm digging that Jedi Knight Luke... looks like a tidy modern version of the vintage one.

Honestly, even though we have gotten versions of these before, this may have been what I was most excited to see from the Hasbro stuff so far. Bummed it is a SDCC exclusive though, so it may be impossible to get. Hopefully they will see individual release down the road.

A close look of these in person and Jedi Luke seems just off. I think itís his nose, might be a little too long. Still want it though  :D

Really hoping these are single-packed later. That a Jedi Luke would be amazing on the old Jabbaís Palace card.

We already have the one that came with the Death Star playset!  :D

I positively LOVED the Saga Trash Compactor screen scene that came out around 2002 / 2003.  But even something like that could use an update.  Especially in light of the Jabba's Palace playset they recently announced.


As for the Luke Skywalker Jedi Destiny 3-pack?  It's pretty cool.  I like the Stormtrooper disguise and Jedi Knight versions.  The one head scratcher is the X-wing pilot version.  If the 3-pack is supposed to be a progression of Luke through the OT that isn't even representative of Luke from TESB.

WHY?

Why can't we get a proper colored Luke Jedi cape? ???

Set look great, though. Glad we're finally getting an accurate Luke Stormtooper.

And here I thought that was a good point.  To me it seems more representative of Luke when he went to Jabba's palace than the TVC deleted scene Luke we got.  Even though Luke dressed almost entirely in black in ROTJ, the cloak he wore going into Jabba's palace was like a grey/brown.

Anyone know if this will be available online after SDCC? I think they did something similar with last year's set, right?

Press Release from Celebration:

"Limited quantities of this item may be available at other select conventions in North America, South America, Australia, and Europe and online at HasbroPulse.com following the conventions. This item will also be available at select retailers in Asia."

Don't expect it to last long on HasbroPulse based on other recent exclusive sales though...
