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.

UPDATE: Just a bit of info on the tabulation, if you submitted more than one vote from the same email address or social handle, ALL of your votes are eliminated as you are clearly trying to cheat or skew the results. If you posted anything in subject line of your email other than what was instructed, your vote was not counted because “rules”.
