Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,840: Luke Skywalker (Heir to the Empire, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 22, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Luke Skywalker (Heir to the Empire, The Black Series 6-Inch). It's Dagobah Luke, in black, with a different lightsaber and a ysalamiri for your Thrawn figure. I'd recommend it, even if Luke does look a little young for a post-Return of the Jedi timeline.

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 15, 2021

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Remnant Stormtrooper (The Retro Collection). This version looks like the old Kenner one, but comes on a retro card and is dirty.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,834: Enfys Nest (The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 1, 2021
