    Comments: Raised by his Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru on their Tatooine moisture farm, young Luke dreamed of being a pilot for the Rebel Alliance. He realized his destiny after being saved from the Tusken Raiders by the mysterious Obi-Wan Kenobi, who told him of his past and began to teach the boy the ways of the Force. When the Empire killed Luke's family, he and Kenobi set off to find Princess Leia, whose message hidden inside the droid R2-D2 beckoned them to join the Rebellion.

    With the aid of smuggler Han Solo and his ship the Millennium Falcon, Luke and Obi-Wan saved the Princess, but at the cost of Kenobi's life at the hand of the evil Darth Vader. His sacrifice allowed them to deliver the technical readouts for the Empire's deadliest weapon, the Death Star, to the Rebel forces. The Rebel fleet used this information to find a weak spot in the Battle Station's defenses and launched its attack. Luke then became a hero to the Rebellion by flying his T-65 X-Wing fighter through a furious dogfight to deliver the final blow.

    I'd be into a Hasbro The Lost Line style assortment
    I'd love to see Gentle Giant make a Jumbo Kenner 1995 Luke Skywalker
    I'm behind both of these ideas!
    I got started in 1995, but I have no interest in such a concept.
    It isn't for me.
