Hasbro San Diego Comic-Con 2019 Exclusive – Luke Skywalker Jedi Destiny 3-Pack Figures Review

Hasbro San Diego Comic-Con 2019 Exclusive – Luke Skywalker Jedi Destiny 3-Pack Figures Review

 

This years Hasbro Star Wars San Diego Comic-Con exclusives includes Luke Skywalker Jedi Destiny 3-Pack, which is based on Luke’s appearance in each film of the original trilogy, a redeco of the 6″ Black Series Boba Fett in the color scheme of the classic Kenner toy, a Kenner-style Darth Vader in bright, prototype colors, and an early release of the 6″ Sith Trooper in special convention packaging.

The journey of the legendary Luke Skywalker began on Tatoonie. A simple farm boy, Luke’s life was forever changed when he discovered a distress call from the rebel Princess Leia. Luke infiltrated the Death Star, disguised as a Stormtrooper, to rescue the princess. He then joined the Rebellion and piloted an X-Wing into battle against the Empre. But the call of the Force was strong, and after training with Jedi Master Yoda, Luke realized his true power as a Jedi Knight.

Thank you to Hasbro for providing their San Diego Comic-Con exclusive Hasbro San Diego Comic-Con 2019 Exclusive – Luke Skywalker Jedi Destiny 3-Pack Figures for review. 

Availability: San Diego Comic-Con; select conventions in North America, South America, Australia, and Europe and online at HasbroPulse.

Luke Skywalker is packaged on a window box with a foil blister card with nicely done artwork that is in the style of The Vintage Collection 3.75″ line. The back also has foil blister with nicely done artwork, movie stills, and a bio on top. Both of the sides also have the foil with logo’s and artwork.

The Jedi Destiny 3-Pack includes three versions of Luke Skywalker that haven’t been offered as single releases in The Vintage Collection, which includes Stormtrooper Disguise Luke Skywalker, X-Wing Pilot Luke Skywalker and Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker. Both Stormtrooper Disguise and Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker use existing sculpts, and X-Wing Pilot is an all-new figure. Since these figures have not been offered in The Vintage Collection yet as part of this new launch, it’ll be wise for you to obtain this set before the scourge of rarity and collectibility of this set hits the secondary aftermarket and goes for some big bucks. Last years Doctor Aphra 3.75″ Set saw Doctor Alpha herself released as a single carded figure, so we’re hopeful that one or more of these Luke Skywalker figures will also be offered again.

 

Stormtrooper Disguise Luke Skywalker is a retool and repaint of the recently released Stormtrooper Disguise Han Solo figure. This version of Luke Skywalker is given a brand new head sculpt with the “photorealistic” technology, and belt which includes a non-removable commlink and grappling hook. Since both figure share the same sculpt, there is no height difference as there was in the movie so these are not entirely film accurate, which is unfortunate. The sculpt itself is nicely done and he has the Stormtrooper armor details and is painted in the standard white and black deco. The helmet is removable as seen in the film, and he is given a E-11 blaster, and there is also a holster for it that works when the barrel of the gun slides down into it and hangs close to the body.

 

X-Wing Pilot Luke Skywalker is given an all-new figure sculpt that is unique to any previously offerings. The figure appears to be a scaled down version of The Black Series 6″ Luke Skywalker figure that just saw release in the Archive line, and this figure also includes the “photorealistic” head sculpt. The figure sculpt looks great and includes all of the great details in the X-Wing Pilot suit such as the chest box as seen in the film. The straps on the legs and waist are too tight and inhibit some of the articulation of the joints. The helmet is also all-new and includes all of the details and deco, and he can also hold it but it as seen in the film. Also included in a blaster pistol.

 

Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker is probably going to be the most popular figure in this set and is a personal favorite of ours. The figure is a great update and includes a fabric brown cloak that has a texture to it. The figures sculpt is a reuse and a retool from the existing sculpt from 2012’s Luke Skywalker Jedi Knight figure, which still works great with this modern line. What is added are some different score lines, bumps and wrinkles. The hands have also been updated and are all-new from the original release. His head sculpt also includes the “photorealistic” technology and a fabric hood can fit over it as its connected to the cloak. Included is a green lightsaber as seen in the film. Also included is a skiff guard blaster.

Overall, the Jedi Destiny 3-Pack is an excellent set with great updates to Luke Skywalker as its needed in The Vintage Collection. This offering is a fun collection of variations of Luke Skywalker all with updates not offered elsewhere at this time, and the “photorealstic” technology on the head sculpts, details on the sculpts and accessories makes this a must-have for all Star Wars fans. Hopefully, Hasbro will offer these figures again as single carded figures given the popularity of these and the fact that everyone should be given a fair chance to own these. For now, this is where you can find them and no matter how many variations of Luke Skywalker you may already own, including the older sculpts of these, you do need to obtain this set.
