  • Comments: Under attack by an Imperial Star Destroyer, protocol droid C-3PO and his partner R2-D2 safely escaped a battered Rebel capital ship and landed on the desert planet of Tatooine. Soon after, the droids were abducted by scavenging Jawas and sold to Owen Lars for use on his desert moisture farm. Luke Skywalker, nephew of Owen and a Tatooine youth, remained unaware that his uncle's purchase of C-3PO and R2-D2 was to help launch one of the most pivotal destinies the galaxy had ever known...his own.

    Points of Interest:
  • At one point in 1998, there were so many versions of Luke Skywalker coming out, all sculpted in similar poses. The Luke figures from Gunner Station, Blastshield Helmet, Flashback Photo, and Commtech Chip figures all used the same torso as this one.
  • The lower body of this version of C-3PO were cleaned up and used to make the Millennium Minted Coin figure.

    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.
