SDCC vs Retail X-34 Landspeeder with Luke Skywalker

There still seems to be A LOT of confusion/misinformation  regarding the differences between the SDCC exclusive version of the X-34 Landspeeder with Luke Skywalker and the retail version hitting shelves in September. Steve Evans from Hasbro has posted what we hope clears things up once and for all.

Both exclusive and retail versions have the SAME ACCESSORIES* (sort of).
*Retail version has regular tunic material for Luke (SDCC has premium material)
Exclusive has premium display packaging, retail has closed box for speeder (does have window for figure)
Exclusive has more DECO on speeder
Exclusive has moving engine turbine, retail version doesn’t

Not mentioned is that Luke as a new likeness, different from the Black Series #21 and 40th Anniversary releases.

    So, just to be clear. The regular release is the same except:

    No spinning turbine
    Low quality poncho
    Different paints
    No display box

    This means that both the hood and the storage compartments at the back still open?

  • LaurenceQuint

    Does the turbine visibly spin in the movie? I don’t think so….

  • LaurenceQuint

    This sucker was sold out on Friday at Comic Con. FRIDAY!!

    Most exclusives don’t sell out until Saturday. Wow.

    If only they had re-released the Saga/Vintage 3.75″ version for the Fortieth. Would have cost them nothing. GOD FORBID!

  • John Titus

    So adding these little details to retail make it cost prohibitive? I just don’t see why the collector line doesn’t have this in all retail.

  • farkle farkle

    so besides the turbine does the retail have the pop hood with engine??

  • xdeathmedicx

    The selling point is the window box why have a vehicle if its all closed off in a box

  • An extra $30.00 for a moving part, a few more paint apps and a “premium material” tunic? Oh, and the pleasure of saying you got to spend hours in line at SDCC. Nope, I’ll be more than happy with the retail version.

    • Haha extra $30?….try an extra $60-$70 for most people.

      • Well yeah, on the secondary market. I was only referring to the SDCC price tag of $89.99

        • Got it. Either one is ridiculous but then again, that softgoods tunic IS premium…

  • Sith Lord Jacen

    Luke has a new likeness?? I hope so that figure is so cheap looking it is probably the worst 6inch black series OT figure to date. And does the hood open on the basic Landspeeder or what.

  • Hazzbro Jonez

    really? really? we getting SDCC exclusive materials for a toy poncho? this ish is getting stupid real fast

    • Not the poncho, his white shirt/tunic.

      • Hazzbro Jonez

        ooops. i need to read better. still, exclusive materials for a toy tunic is still as ridiculous !

  • Ken Hoff

    So the spinning turbine is missing from retail, but does the hood still come up? As a kid, that was a pretty cool feature for the 3.75 original figs… pop open the hood of your landspeeder to have Luke work on it. Would love to have the spinning turbine, but could live without it and the expense as long as the hood still opens.

    • Hood still opens

      • Bombadgungan

        Great! Before this article, I was under the impression that the opening hood was reserved for the SDCC version.

        Looks like I’ll be buying the mass retail version. I can live without the spinning turbine and premium fabric on the tunic.

        • Subcoolin

          Agreed!! Good to know!! Thank you!!

    • Shawn Bruffett

      This is from the back of the Regular Release Box. The Turbine is still viewable but doesn’t spin and the button that operates the spinning action is missing. Otherwise they look Identical.
