Sneak Peek! TBS6 The Empire Strikes Back 40th Anniversary Luke Skywalker (Bespin)

We have a special “sneak peek” for you of The Black Series [The Empire Strikes Back 40th Anniversary] Luke Skywalker (Bespin) figure. You’re going to love this figure. Taking the base of 2014’s The Black Series [Phase I] Luke Skywalker (#11) figure, Hasbro tooled an all-new head sculpt for this release and completely repainted the figure. More importantly, Luke Skywalker lost the rubbery texture of the 2014 plastic. This release feels solid, rigid, and unbendable by comparison. The new portrait is stunning, and the use of Photo Real makes this likeness favor Mark Hamill very much. Unfortunately, Hasbro DESTROYED the card back art. I don’t think I’ve seen a worse interpretation of the Kenner card back. The ORIGINAL images exist on Google. It’s unknown why Hasbro would attempt to recreate the original reference image this making the character look “fake.” Or perhaps Hasbro can start using the “alternate” image of Luke Skywalker (Bespin Fatigues), that they’re absolutely unwilling to use for reasons unknown. The review is coming soon, but please enjoy packaged, loose and comparison images in our RDRs now.
