The long awaited Luke Skywalker Pilot Outfit Figure from Hot Toys has been revealed. Fans got to see this Star Wars figure last month during the Sideshow Con and now all has been revealed. The figure will be in their Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back 40th Anniversary Collection and will feature retro-style packaging just like the Darth Vader and Boba feet that came before it. Luke Skywalker will be wearing his Snowspeeder pilot suit from the films beginning battle on Hoth. The figure features the likeness of the Luke Skywalker aka Mark Hamill in all his glory. The 1/6th scale Star Wars figure will also feature newly sculpted hair, tailored snow speeder outfit, and a removable flight helmet. That is not all as Luke gets some accessories with LED Lightsaber with an interchangeable blade, grapple gun, blaster, thermal detonator, and a Hoth themed diorama with stand.
This is one figure fans have been looking forward to and is a perfect addition to the Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back 40th Anniversary Collection. The retro packaging was shown but will be a huge plus for inbox collectors to relive that classic collectible feel. The Luke Skywalker Snowspeeder Outfit 1/6th scale figure from Hot Toys has not gone live just yet. With an official announcement like this, they usually go up the same day which fans will be able to find them here. I would expect nothing let than a price tag around $250 and make are to add the Boba Fett and Darth Vader to your collection today.
