    Points of Interest:
  • (*)Although based on the final scene in The Empire Strikes Back, this figure is inaccurate because Luke lost his lightsaber along with his hand. So either consider this to be an "Infinities" figure, or just give the lightsaber to another figure.
  • This Luke Skywalker is based on 2004's VOTC Luke Skywalker figure. This time around, he has a new head, right forearm, and lower legs.
  • This figure contains an extra "Droid Factory" piece to Build-A-Droid. This figure includes U-3PO's head.
  • There is a variant edition of the Build-A-Droid figure in this wave: it comes painted in either a silver or a champagne finish.

    Moving into our nineteenth year of shooting Star Wars collectibles, we pause for a moment to consider legacy. Our photography is obviously recognizable because of the blue background, but looking further back, especially after we published The Man Who Shot Luke Skywalker galleries last December, we've put our minds to offering more classic Kenner backgrounds to our galleries. Follow this link to have a look and then let us know if you'd like to continue to explore this train of thought.
    Focus on the Rebelscum legacy and keep it blue.
    I love the nod to Kenner's history. I'd love to see Rebelscum embrace a more colourful vision.
