Patience: A Final SWC 6″ X-wing Luke Slips Out of HTS

Twitter follower @j5unD sends us an amazing report that his order for the Star Wars Celebration Exclusive 6″ Luke Skywalker (X-wing Pilot), that had been languishing in his shopping cart since April 25, filled and shipped yesterday. See the enclosed images for his proof. Crazy!

UPDATE: As a follow up to yesterday’s report, Jason sent a pic of his Luke which arrived safe and sound. We have added it to the gallery of images after the break.

Celebration Exclusive Luke Removed from HTS

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.

Pre-Punched or Unpunched: Which One Do You Have?

Despite assurances that the 6″ 40th Anniversary figures would be pre-punched for retail sales, it seems like there is at least one figure that this claim didn’t necessarily apply. There are samples for the Star Wars Celebration exclusive Luke Skywalker: X-Wing Pilot figure that made it into hands of collectors with the punch intact. While this isn’t anything to covet for majority of collectors, there is a segment of the community that this will surely interest.

Thanks to trashtone for the info and for his aid in acquiring this sample.

Your Eyes Can Deceive You. Don’t Trust Them.

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.
