Luke goes to the second Death Star to confront his father, Darth Vader. Despite giving into his anger, Luke refuses to destroy his father and rejects Emperor Palpatine's attempts to turn Luke to the dark side."I'll never turn to the dark side."
After releasing four waves of figures, Hasbro redesigned the packaging for The Black Series 6-inch collection, replacing the orange details with blue and altering the window to better display larger characters. With the new package design, Hasbro opted to renumber the line and the Wave 1 2014 assortment was born. This first wave of figures included the repainted #01 Sandtrooper with black enlisted pauldron, the Return Of The Jedi #02 Darth Vader with two-part removable helmet, the Return Of The Jedi #03 Luke Skywalker as he appeared in the film's climatic third act pictured here, and A New Hope #04 Chewbacca.
The #03 Luke Skywalker action figure features 18 points of articulation and comes with a lightsaber Hilt, removable Ignited Blade, removable Belt, and interchangeable Shirt Panels that give collectors the ability to display this figure as Luke appeared before and after he witnessed the Chosen One restoring balance to the Force.
The figures in this assortment were first displayed in Hasbro's showroom at the 2014 International Toy Fair, and then publicly in their booth at the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con. All four figures began showing up the following September.
