Hot Toys Review | Luke Skywalker (Star Wars: Return of the Jedi)

Thomas takes his first steps into a larger world with the incredible Sixth Scale Luke Skywalker Figure from Hot Toys

Sideshow and Hot Toys have officially presented the incredible movie masterpiece – the highly anticipated sixth scale Luke Skywalker Star Wars collectable figure from Star Wars: Return Of The Jedi. Masterfully crafted based on the appearance of Luke Skywalker in the movie, the sixth scale collectable figure features a newly developed head sculpt with impressive likeness, a meticulously tailored Jedi outfit, an interchangeable arm with the LED light-up lightsaber, a lightsaber, the normal lightsaber effect, the action lightsaber effect, 10 interchangeable hands, Imperial handcuffs, a Jedi cape, two belts, a “Jedi outfit” and a specially designed figure base with two additional backgrounds. This figure has 32 points of articulation.

Review:

Usually, when it comes to Luke Skywalker in Return of The Jedi, figures that are released always include one outfit of the character while his outfits in this movie are basically variations of the same outfit. Well, Hot Toys did something great, this figure is roughly three figures in one! By that I mean, it includes the three main outfits of Luke Skywalker from Return Of The Jedi – the Tatooine outfit (with and without the cape), the Endor/Death Star II outfit and the final part of the Death Star II sequence outfit. It’s the most complete Luke figure I’ve seen so far and I’m extremely happy about this.

Luke’s figure base is the best from the Hot Toys I have, it’s literally a small Death Star environment, it’s nice! The LED light-up lightsaber is just as awesome in green as the blue LED lightsabers I have of Rey and Anakin. That feature is probably my favorite of the Hot Toys figures. You also have a really nice choice of interchangeable hands, even the one when Luke’s robotic hand is damaged during the skirmish on Jabba’s Sail Barge. Handcuffs have been included if you want to recreate the scene with Darth Vader on Endor. There’s plenty of accessories to recreate iconic scenes from the movie.

The head sculpt is pure beauty, Hot Toys is always nailing it with the faces. I love the facial expression they chose for this one with the mouth slightly opened. They captured every little detail on his face and it’s incredible to see!

As for the three outfits, they’re all screen accurate and Hot Toys used amazing fabrics for these, it’s wonderful!

Final Thoughts:

This Luke Skywalker figure is a must-have for fans of this character, it has plenty of accessories with which you can recreate your favorite scenes from Return Of The Jedi!

A second Luke from Return Of The Jedi will be released later this year and it will include the camouflage Endor clothing and the deleted scene sandstorm accessories along with interchangeable hair and heads. These interchangeable features will be compatible with this figure along with the accessories.
