“I am a Jedi, like my father before me.”
Return of the Jedi was such a perfect way to wrap up the story of the Han, Leia, and Luke. I’m so glad that we never had prequels or sequels, but Star Wars lived on via merchandise. Imagine what things would be like today if we got subpar movies and a giant corporation bought the franchise and turned it into a sociopolitical loudspeaker. I’m so happy that didn’t happen…
No matter how Star War‘s new owners try to deflate Luke Skywalker, he will always be my hero. As a kid, I remember learning a lesson about failure watching Luke getting his backside kicked in Empire.
A Diamond Select Toys release! Luke Skywalker™ is back in Black, and he’s the newest Milestones statue! Measuring approximately 12 inches tall, Luke wears his famous all-black outfit from Return of the Jedi™, including one black glove, and holds his green-bladed lightsaber. This statue is limited to only 2000 pieces, features detailed sculpting and paint applications, and comes packaged in a full-color box with a numbered certificate of authenticity.
Designed by the Silva Bros. and sculpted by Gentle Giant Studios!
Look at that detail! From the belt hook to the small bumps on Mark Hamil’s face, this is something impressive. Even the lightsaber looks like it has its belt clip. If you’ve been following Star Wars merchandise over the years, you’ll know how often the sculptors get Luke’s face wrong. Man, the weird versions of Han and Luke that are out there could be an entire article of its own.
Luke will be shipping in November and is handsomely priced at $250. Click here to pre-order directly from Gentle Giant Ltd.
