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.
If you’re in need, now’s the time as ThinkGeek now has the 6″ R5-D4 in stock. Thanks to on Twitter for the heads up.
