Instagram follower Jeremy B sends us this image confirming our May report of an upcoming exclusive 6” Black Series Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight) figure. A friend of his purchased it from a recent Disney storage sale.
Walmart was originally thought to be the retailer of this yet to be announced exclusive, but based on new info that may not be the case.
9/13: Some additional poking about has also led us to the fact that the new 6″ Black Series Luke Skywalker from Return of the Jedi (which we discovered back in May) will probably be a deluxe release and with a higher price point (similar to General Grievous) than the standard Black Series figure. Still no word on exclusivity or what extras Luke may include.
Update 9/16: Unfortunately, I cross-referenced this figure with another yet to be revealed deluxe figure. ROTJ Luke will feature a standard box size and price point release. Sorry about the mix up. 🙁
Collectors who preordered the exclusive 6” Black Series Emperor Palpatine with Throne from Amazon have started receiving processing and shipping notifications for their orders. This set was originally slated for an October release but it looks to have been moved up.
Hot Toys has announced their 1:6 scale Princess Leia and Wicket Set from Return of the Jedi. This special bundle includes an exclusive pair of weathered Death Star Trooper and Stormtrooper helmets.
Aside from the set, each figure is also available individually. You can check out each items and HotToys.hk
