It was inevitable but HasbroToyShop has just removed the link and page for the Star Wars Celebration Exclusive 6″ Luke Skywalker (X-wing Pilot) figure, officially putting an end to its availability at the MSRP.
UPDATE: this is weird, despite the search for the term “Luke” or “40th anniversary” turning up zero results, the direct link for Luke is still there. I still wouldn’t expect any more quantities to become available.
Last week for May the 4th, my daughters had a special “Star Wars Day” function for school where they encouraged the kids to dress up as their favorite character. Naturally, I was all for this but felt the need to take it a step further so I took it upon myself to add a bit of flare to my daughter’s Jyn Erso costume and give her her own stolen Death Star Data Tape stunt prop. Click on through to check out a few in-progress images as well as the final outfit.

We’ve been informed by our friends at GTP-Toys that their highly anticipated “Space Walls” in the 3.75 scale have arrived from their factory and they expect to begin shipping out orders next week.
If you like to display your figures with any sort of diorama or playset aesthetic, then this is time to get very excited because what these folks are doing is changing the hobby for the better. Those who have already been enjoying their 6″ scale products can attest to just how amazing this stuff is.

Roll into your local GameStop if you still need to scavenge their exclusive 6″ R5-D4. Don’t blow a motivator though if they are out of stock.
Thanks to @scottfromtulsa for the report.
