    Comments: Luke Skywalker X-wing Pilot was the first official costume-changed character figure. In a way, this figure, which made its debut in the second assortment of figures, was the push that propelled the small metaphoric snowball down the frosty slope thus creating the monolithic orb on which we blissfully play that is Star Wars action figure collecting.

    Major Variations: Though all vintage figures have minor variations, Luke Skywalker X-wing Pilot has no major variations.

    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.
