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.
We managed to secure an extra Celebration Exclusive Luke Skywalker X-wing Pilot and in honor of #StarWarsDay we’re giving one away!* Simply leave a comment here on this article (not our social media postings) stating what is your favorite Luke Skywalker collectible and why. We’ll pick and announce the winner tomorrow. Good luck, and May the Fourth Be With You!
*Giveaway is open to US residents only.
Update: a winner has been selected. Details in the comment section.
