I made a couple of mistakes on the Luke Skywalker (Yavin) figure’s recipe. So, I wanted to clear that up here. Firstly, the figure is indeed a retool of 2013’s TBS [P1] Luke Skywalker (#05) figure. But the head sculpt (and hairpiece), forearms AND hands are all new parts. I initially believed they were the same hands of the Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight) figure from the Luke Skywalker Jedi Destiny set, but those hands are ball-jointed, and Luke Skywalker (Yavin)’s hands are swivel. I wanted to make that detail clear. They look to be based on each other, but they’re definitely different. If you haven’t seen our review on this figure, please check it out HERE.
NEW FIGURE! It’s time to check out the brand new The Vintage Collection Luke Skywalker (Yavin) (VC151) figure. It’s beautiful! And it will probably be the last time we’ll ever see this figure made. See how well the updated parts mix with the older ones. It will be everywhere this October. But you can see comparison pictures and more now in our Research Droids Reviews today!

The Luke Skywalker (Yavin) listing that showed up on Walmart a couple of weeks ago is now visually confirmed thanks to Instagram. And it’s clearly not a straight repack as assumed by some collectors. Check it out! Thanks to JTA reader Ruari W. for the alert! Also, it’s definitely some type of retailer exclusive as evidenced by the assortment number. As Ruari and I both noticed, it looks like Hasbro is correcting their sin of placing the subtitle to the right of the figure’s name to underneath of it like it should. I am glad we whined about that now. Let’s hope they’re consistent with this fix! Original image from Tim at Bossk’s Bounty.
