Luke Skywalker Luke Skywalker 2013 The Black Series

Luke Skywalker is awarded a medal for his part in destroying the Death Star.

The #05 Luke Skywalker is a retooling of the 2007 30th Anniversary action figure. This time out, Hasbro created a new head and a more accurate holster. Beyond these revisions, the figure came packed with a Medal of Valor, an ignited lightsaber, a lightsaber hilt and the correct DDC Defender sporting blaster.

This figure, along with #01 Padmé Amidala from the Battle of Geonosis, #02 Clone Trooper Sergeant featuring the 2011 body buck, #03 Anakin Skywalker as he appeared in Attack Of The Clones, #04 Biggs Darklighter in his X-Wing pilot gear, #06 Darth Vader with Bespin Cloud City related accessories, #07 Biker Scout that was originally included with the Speeder Bike the previous year and #08 Clone Pilot in Phase I armor, made up the first wave of figures in Hasbro's Star Wars: The Black Series 3 3/4-inch action figure collection. The figures were originally planned to be released in the cancelled 2013 Droid Factory collection and were revealed to be repackaged as the launch wave for this new collector focused series. First revealed in their showroom at the 2013 Toy Fair, the first wave began shipping all over North America at the end of the following July.

  • Lightsaber
  • Lightsaber Hilt

Variations:
  • The initial shipment of action figures in the first wave of The Black Series had a blister separation issue. The glue wasn't strong enough to sufficiently keep the blister attached to the card back.
  • To correct the blister separation issue, Hasbro added a line of tape on the top of the blisters of all the remaining stock before implementing new procedures that solved the issue all together.
  • After fixing the separation issue, Hasbro altered the blister design by removing the impressed Imperial Light Piping on the right side.
