There seems to be a touch of confusion surrounding the Celebration Exclusive 6″ Luke Skywalker in regard to the card back. The photography shown on HasbroToyShop today doesn’t convey the reflective quality of the special foil treatment it has, leading to claims that the card back is different. We can confirm that it is the EXACT SAME as what was sold at Star Wars Celebration. The two products were simply photographed under different lighting conditions and at different angles. DO NOT overpay for the Celebration Exclusive “foil card” version.
HasbroToyShop has updated (2:20pm ET) and is now offering the Celebration Exclusive 6″ 40th Anniversary Luke Skywalker (X-wing Pilot) for a limited time. Good luck and may the Force be with You.
Out of stock (2:55pm ET)
In case you missed it before, preorders have opened again for the GameStop exclusive 6″ Black Series Battlefront II Inferno Squadron TIE Fighter Pilot.
