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.
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.
K & C Collectibles has added Topps Rogue One Trading Cards, Star Wars Insider #172, additional Celebration Orlando Pins and 40th Anniversary 6″ Action Figures. Click the NEW PRODUCTS link under the Categories Section for a complete list of recently added items.

Reports are that from approximately 2:15-2:25pm the Celebration Exclusive Luke Skywalker (X-wing Pilot) available on HasbroToyShop.com. While not completely out of the question, I would think that was the last of them to be had at retail price.
Congrats to any and all who were able to secure one or two.
Welcome back! After a nice break and a Star Wars Celebration to cover, Jayson and Flyguy are back to break down the latest in collecting news. On this episode we discuss the big reveals from Celebration as well as new items hitting stores (and our wallets). All this and more on episode #110 of The Realm Recap!
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.
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.
Star Wars Celebration is over but that won’t keep Funko from revealing more product! Check out the bad MFer Mace Windu coming exclusively to Walgreens next month. You can use UPC 88969814822 or WIC #992434 to track yours down.
Here is a great video from Action Figure Attack on Facebook showing the return of the Vintage Collection at Hasbro panel from Star Wars Celebration. Kudos to Hasbro showing that they really do care. Look for TVC to hit pegs once again in Spring 2018.
For your viewing pleasure, enjoy this hi-res images from Hasbro Star Wars Celebration panel. Not everything they showed is included here (3.75″ Vintage Collection Rey for example) but it’s a majority of the products previewed.
Hasbro has distributed hi-res images for the newly announced 6″ Black Series Landspeeder with Luke Skywalker and, as you can see, the head for “Wormie” seems to be updated. Click the image above for a closer look.
