Today, Hasbro has provided us with a brand new reveal featuring this year’s international convention exclusive: Luke Skywalker (Skywalker Strikes). This new 6″ Black Series figure includes additional accessories that are sourced not only from A New Hope but also from recent Marvel Comics. This exclusive will “be available at key conventions this Fall including MCM London Comic-Con, Paris Comic-Con, Lucca Comics & Games, Salon Manga Barcelona, and Madrid Comic-Con (in limited quantities, while supplies last)”.
Hasbro is continuing Lucasfilm/Disney’s focus on Luke Skywalker for focus of their Episode IX campaign. Lots of companies (Hasbro included) are releasing product under the title “Skywalker Saga”. And while one could debate which Skywalker, Luke or Anakin, is truly the basis of the Saga, Luke appears to be the main focus.
For 6″ Luke Skywalker collectors like ourselves, this is another great figure to add to the collection. For those playing along at home, here are the numbers so far:
A New Hope

- Farmboy – 40th Anniversary Collection

With eighteen versions of our favorite Jedi already in the books, we can’t wait to see which version will come next. Will it be in whatever form he appears as in The Rise of Skywalker? Will they finally do an Endor Luke? Could we ever see a Luke and Leia as newborns in an Obi-Wan and Bail two-pack)? What about the three other outfits from The Last Jedi? There are lots of ways Hasbro can go with the character and we are happy to be along for the ride.
