Capture a piece of Star Wars history... the ultimate commemorative figure for Star Wars enthusiasts throughout the galaxy! Hasbro's 100th, 12" Action Collection Star Wars figure traces the evolution of Luke Skywalker from his humble beginnings as a farmboy on Tatooine to his daring adventures as a heroic X-wing pilot and Jedi apprentice. With authentically styled Tatooine clothing and X-Wing flight suit, this landmark figure and accessory set adds to the lore and nostalgia of Star Wars: A New Hope, where it all began in a galaxy far, far away...

Obi-Wan Kenobi presents Luke with his father's lightsaber signifying Luke's "first step into a larger world."

Luke boards his X-wing fighter and, guided by the Force, targets the Death Star exhaust port to annihilate the Empire's ultimate weapon.

The Power Of The Jedi line was full of landmarks, important events, and a re-envisioned approach to the basic figure line. The 3.75” figures, for the first time, began to be made in scale with one another. Chewbacca was much taller than Princess Leia Organa, for example. Also, the Power Of The Jedi was the first line look to celebrate and set the stage for the 25th Anniversary of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. But perhaps most importantly, the Power Of The Jedi line saw two major milestones with both the basic figure line and the Action Collection 12 Inch Figures lines. At the end of 2000, Hasbro released their 300th basic figure (they released a commemorative Boba Fett figure to celebrate this) as well as the release of the 100th Action Collection figure. Luke Skywalker served as the alpha and omega of this landmark as the first 100 figures begin and end with Luke Skywalker. Hasbro proudly released Luke Skywalker (As Seen In Star Wars: A New Hope) Action Collection figure, which presented the beloved Luke Skywalker character in most outfits and their slight differences throughout Episode IV. The big omission here is the ceremonial outfit seen at the end the film. This omission isn’t any worry, as Hasbro released that version of Luke Skywalker (In Ceremonial Gear) as a general marketplace Action Collection release. Hasbro included multiple outfits and a plethora of accessories to give collectors nearly every outfit option possible for Luke Skywalker.

Luke Skywalker comes dressed in the poncho we see him don at Docking Bay 94 in Mos Eisley in the package. The figure is also holding a blaster rifle, which will make you recall the moments of film he decided to hunt the Sand People, only to get foiled by them in return. Visually, the packaging is stellar. It comes with deluxe gatefold packaging. The flaps open up to show various scenes from A New Hope, as well ad the different ways you can arrange the included Luke Skywalker Action Collection figure. The poncho has button snaps sewn into it. They’re important because they help keep a streamlined look for Luke Skywalker. The clothing looks more fitted because of little enhancements like these. You can easily convert Luke Skywalker into his basic “farmboy” attire, and you can also easily transition the figure into the specific look while trying to escape the Death Star after rescuing Princess Leia Organa. Luke Skywalker comes with both his standard utility belt as well as an Imperial Stormtrooper belt to help you complete these looks. The figure also comes with an E-11 blaster with projectile, a comlink, a grappling hook, a hat, goggles, lightsaber hilt, lightsaber blade, macrobinoculars, and so may other accessories. You get the full enchilada here, and collectors should be thrilled about this. Luke Skywalker also comes with a blastshield helmet and training remote so you can recreate his training on the Millennium Falcon under the tutelage of Obi-Wan Kenobi.

The big surprise here is that Hasbro also included gear and clothing for another completely different outfit: his X-wing pilot gear. We will tell you that we nearly lost our cool changing outfits for Luke Skywalker. The clothing fits so tightly on the figure that it’s difficult to remove. And trying to get the clothing over the figure’s head and arms is enough to make you want to seek alcohol for coping reasons. Eventually, you will be able to change Luke Skywalker into Battle of Yavin gear, and the figure looks fantastic if you get it right. Disappointingly, the X-wing helmet DOES NOT fit this new figure’s portrait. It’s a major disappointment, but it is what it is. There are a lot of parts here to enjoy, and this figure is made with collectors in mind. They should be very happy with what Hasbro produced here. To whether or not Luke Skywalker (As Seen In Star Wars: A New Hope) is indeed the 100th Action Collection figure or not is another story. We appreciate the detailed checklist Hasbro included with Luke Skywalker, but they were inconsistent with their counting. For example, they list both the 1997 and 1998 AT-AT Drivers, but they don’t list the single versions of Han Solo (In Hoth Gear) and Luke Skywalker (In Hoth Gear). Also, they list the Luke Skywalker Vs. Wampa set as two separate figures, but the Han Solo & Tauntaun set gets counted as one. As you can see, they fumbled a bit with compiling this list. The Power Of The Jedi line signals we are well beyond the 100th figure mark.
