LUKE SKYWALKER: X-WING PILOT Luke Skywalker (X-Wing Pilot) - 6-inch The Black Series 40th Anniversary collection action figure from Hasbro 40th Anniversary Collection

As a pilot for the Rebel Alliance, Luke Skywalker fought in many of the battles of the Galactic Civil War. His most important appearance, however, may have been his role in the one of the war's earliest battles - the Battle of Yavin - and in the destruction of the Galactic Empire's ultimate weapon: the Death Star. In this battle, Skywalker (flying as Red Five) unexpectedly assumed leadership of Red Squadron and led the attack on the moon-sized battle station. Using the Force and two expertly fired proton torpedoes, Skywalker adeptly navigated his versatile X-wing starfighter through the battle station's trench to its thermal exhaust port and struck the Death Star's main reactor, causing the entire structure to explode. Though the battle was over, this was not the last that Luke would see of a Death Star...

Revealed February 15, 2017 on The Star Wars Show, Hasbro's Star Wars Celebration Orlando 2017 exclusive Luke Skywalker: X-Wing Pilot 40th Anniversary 6-inch action figure celebrated the Star Wars franchise's milestone by releasing a slight repaint the first action figure from The Black Series 6-inch action figure collection. The action figure featured on this page was originally released in 2013 and can be seen here. This version, on a special foil classic Kenner inspired card, was made available primarily to attendees at Star Wars Celebration Orlando 2017, and sold out quickly. Even post event online sales when fast. No one could have anticipated how popular this release would be, but it is destined to enjoy increased secondary value for some time.
