【Star Wars: Return of the Jedi - 1/6th scale Luke Skywalker Collectible Figure (Deluxe Version)】

"I will never turn to the dark side." - Luke Skywalker

In the epic conclusion of the classic Star Wars saga, after Luke Skywalker has returned to his home planet of Tatooine to rescue his friend Han Solo from the clutches of the vile gangster Jabba the Hutt. The young Skywalker along with his friends and the Rebellion fleet must take down the second Death Star in order to stop the evil Empire from wiping out the last hope to restore freedom to the galaxy...

Hot Toys is very excited to officially present today, the new Deluxe Version 1/6th scale Luke Skywalker collectible figure from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi featuring his iconic attire as seen on Tatooine, Endor, and the second Death Star.

Masterfully crafted based on the appearance of Luke Skywalker in the final chapter of the original trilogy, the new collectible figure features a newly developed head sculpt with remarkable likeness, finely tailored costumes, the helmet and camouflage cloak Luke wore on Endor, a LED light-up lightsaber, an interchangeable lightsaber blade emulating the weapon in motion, a blaster, and a themed figure stand.

This Deluxe Version will exclusively include an additional head sculpt with an interchangeable all-new hair sculpture, an extra piece of interchangeable battle damaged right hand, dark grey tunic with belt, and the Tatooine sandstorm goggles and cloak as seen in the deleted scenes.

This is a Luke Skywalker collectible figure that will be a treasured addition for all Star Wars fans who choose to confront their destiny!

Has a bit of Marty McFly about it.

Couple of the pics look pretty decent. I like the reg Luke with poncho look, and the reg Luke with windswept hair looks okay too, just a lot of forehead.

Still unsure on that Tooth Skywalker sculpt. With the windswept hair it looks a bit like Ben Shapiro. More like he's arguing over something than determined/battling.

I'm sure Sideshow must have been mighty happy to have gotten this HT release in their inbox.:lol

So for all the folks who said they shouldn't have done a DX, I might be wrong but from what I can see he literally has every single thing as the regular version except for the binders and Jabba cloak. Even the palace blaster. :lol

Pretty sure there's space for both those in the deluxe release.

Deluxe is going to be a lot more, extra head has to be a $50 bump at least. It's not even clear that the Endor version can be displayed as a DSII version, so that'll probably be super cheap. Gonna be a price gap like the ROTJ stormies.

So this is basically DX07, RotJ version. Only thing of mild interest to me in this set would be the wind swept hair.

After seeing it up close, I'm not a fan of the gritted teeth sculpt. And the other sculpt looks to be the current sculpt repainted with the eyes gazing to the right, which I prefer them looking straight ahead. I've never had any interest in an Endor gear Luke figure, just Jedi and DS II looks, so the current figure accomplishes that just fine.

That gloved hand set parted out is going to be highly sought after though.

I'm glad they did the MMS429 version. What that includes is more than suitable for what I wanted out of a RotJ Luke. It would have been a bummer if this was the only set they did, and you'd have to pay what is surely going to be at least $300 for a set that you're only going to use maybe 50% of.

12-06-2018, 11:25 PM
The windy hair sculpt looks pretty bad and doesn't do the figure justice. Maybe if the hair was longer it would look better. The rest looks good, but not enough for me to buy this figure again. I'm actually quite happy with the first release to be honest.

Unbelievable. What a punch in the gut.

Absolutely - total kick in the teeth for those that bought the first version. I am well and truly P’d off with HT for pulling this stunt.
I was only ever really interested in the Deathstar look, but being a collector in the UK I need to either jump on a pre-order as soon as it’s available or risk missing out (or paying even more over the odds than U.K. collectors already do). Given there was no guarantee HT would ever release another Jedi Luke, I had to go with the first version, regretting it now! [emoji2959]

Hot Toys doesn't generally release separate accessory packs though. The only exceptions have been a couple Iron Man releases, but that line is basically their bread and butter.

And that's likely correct. I'm presuming the hair piece on MMS429 is compatible with the accessories of this figure, and vice versa.

I'm mad that both sculpts are included. If it was Endor Luke with the teeth sculpt and similar accessories I'd be fine; not sure I'd jump on it. But this includes both sculpts making the first release pretty pointless. This one has the eyes looking to the side, so it's slightly different, but I'm annoyed more now because I like that one better than the straight looking sculpt I have.

Also the timing, if this was 2-3 years from now fine; it's been a while. But the other set practically just came out. I think some Australians who ordered from Popcultcha are still waiting for theirs.

So 8 head sculpts.

And yeah, first release is totally irrelevant now. I'm thinking of keeping the cloak and binders, selling off the rest of the first ROTJ figure, and then get the new deluxe.

I imagine the first will still hold value if anything for the head sculpt. Looks like the normal one on this is with eyes to the right and it's not PERS. I don't have the original figure, but the hair comes off on that one like the DX07?

If anything, it will be cool for people who want to grab the wind swept hair loose or something like that.

Does the original ROTJ Luke have the black tunic, too, or is it just the Death Star II version of Luke without the tunic?

Also, as a newbie to Hot Toys, I’m hoping they do something like this for Bespin Luke in time for Empire’s 40th anniversary.

ladyshanz
12-07-2018, 01:40 AM
Got the normal one for my husband’s birthday in July. RotJ Luke is pretty much his favorite outing for one of his favorite characters, which is saying something. He recently said as he was re-posing our Star Wars figures that while he loves his RotJ Luke above all his other figures, he wishes it was a DX like his Bespin one.

I’m livid that Hot Toys did this. I get business is business, but screwing over a loyal fan base in this way is definitely not good business. I would have ordered this one immediately for his birthday instead.

Really got a mixed feeling about this.
It's refreshing to see an alternativ facial expression and hair style. The endor outfit is also great.
But I don't need that sandstorm gear. And I don't think selling the original set without the jedi tunic, handcuff and original HS will get me nearly there to upgrade to the deluxe.
Without those missing features from the original set, this still is not the ultimate Luke Skywalker ROTJ set. It's more like you would need both...

I think I'd rather pass.

Im not surprised with this. They triple-dipped with the Death Trooper. I have the ROTJ still boxed. No room in the current Imperial display. I’ll just hunt down the extra gloves hands, headsculpt and Endor gear. No interest in the windswept hair or base. I like his expression on this better than the original though.
Bring on the Scout Trooper!

So to clarify, this new figure has everything the first Jedi Luke figure had except the cloak, the Jedi tunic, the hand cuffs and the base. It has a new sculpt with gritted teeth, , 2 new gloved hands, the Endor poncho and helmet. And a new Endor base.

The Deluxe version includes: The Tatooine cloak, Jedi tunic, goggles, a 2nd battle damaged hand, a new swap out hair sculpt and the bonus head sculpt is the Jedi sculpt but with the eyes now looking to the right.

Im fine with this release, since there are so many display options. Potentially 7 (?) unique looks. This saves me the trouble of buying an extra body/head/costume again. The standard version is pretty bare bones. Its a bad deal considering what you're not getting. Unless its significantly cheaper.

Im disappointed we're getting the same LED arm with the black glove. The deluxe set should've come with an un-gloved LED arm so we could get this scene with the lighted effect.

Come on Hot Toys. This should have been an option alongside the original regular release. That’s a pretty low blow releasing the deluxe months after the regular just giving the customer enough time to buy the first one. Pretty petty, almost like this is a stunt where Howard is just laughing at his customer base.

Hoping the original version just sits on SS shelves occupying space and costing somebody money.

I like HT but man they sometimes lay the screws on their customer base.

Really should’ve just been a DX like Bespin Luke. Two bodies and clothing with a **** ton of accessories, I think a lot of us would’ve paid over $300 for it no problem; same with Anakin/Sith Anakin. That said, I’m still buying this with no hesitation. Once HT Jabba is released, being able to have the Palace or Barge display while still being able to have a DS2 or Endor display at the same time just too awesome to pass on. Sometimes it sucks being a sucker for Star Wars.

It would have been a good opportunity to tease Scouts and/or Endor Leia. Shame that's not the case.

This release isn't a surprise, but I understand the sentiment of those (like me) that bought the original. These figures are expensive as they are, and it's difficult to justify double dipping on similar figures. Having said that, you can have two distinct looks wiith the endor gear vs the original. I'm also thinking of having this Luke displayed on a speeder bike.

Yeah but that was a long time ago. I'm guessing you're looking at $500 give or take to have all of the Jedi looks in 2018. The first Jedi Luke was somewhat of a deal by HT standards.

Recap Edit:
2 Full figures
3 Head sculpts
All the accessories

Roughly $250 a figure. (based off $266 guess for this)

Not so simple.

Original ROTJ Luke had forward looking portrait, cape, cuffs, DS base, a different set of hands (the only three ungloved undamaged right hands).
Endor Luke comes with gnarling sculpt, regular hair, Endor helmet, Endor base,no battle damaged hands but more gloved options. It's not clear if he comes with the grey kimono but likely yes.
DX Luke comes with all Endor Luke stuff plus sandstorm gear, damaged hand, and additional sculpt (same as Original ROTJ Luke but looking sideways) and hairpiece (windy).

It's classic HT, instead of releasing one fully encompassing single figure, release two where just the right separation of parts that might mean a lot to some customers will force them towards buying both.

The V2 is a great looking saber. Why does it kill you?

I didn't want to buy another Luke from ROTJ, but with the saber, the hands, Endor gear and wind swept hair, it's becoming too much to try and pick up once parted out.

To all the HT apologists out there, here is why the consumers are angry.....

They previewed this figure....as a stand alone Endor version. No where did they show a second head sculpt or they other stuff....
Thats false advertising , based strictly on the fact they had a lesser figure waiting in the wings to release after the first was basically sold out....

If you cant understand why a consumer would be upset about that.....I don’t know what to say to you.

To be fair there never officially was an accessory pack, just "interchangeable with upcoming accessories".

I guess so.

Exactly. This isn't a case of whining, this figure was not previewed to include all of these extras. Seems perfectly reasonable to me that people would think this was underhanded.

If at the release of the v1 hot toys had offered (or at least revealed) the all bells and whistles RotJ luke at a premium price, I'm guessing most people would have gone for the premium.

The timing of this so incredibly close to the originals release would seemingly indicate a cynical double dip cash grab by hot toys. It's only been months since this figure was released, if it was a couple of years ago people might be less irritated.

As it was with the Anakin release.

12-07-2018, 07:29 AM
my real complaint is how crummy the sculpts are! Bucky beaver luke.
Now, will he be chubby luke still or has he gone in a diet??
I have 2 chubby Luke’s right now.
That will really make me mad. I had to hide his belly behind the cloak and a crossed arm pose.
If this body is like the original rotj luke prototype, that will be the worst offense.
We all knew ht would pull a cash grab on this. Anyone who thought it wouldn’t be a full Endor figure was crazy, why would they release an accessory pack when they can bang us for another full figure?
That said, I’ll get the deluxe just for the extra sculpt because I want the Endor figure.
I’m sure we will see a serious expression palpatine shortly.

I'm sure hot toys only sees this as good business, high return for not much outlay, but im certain that these rapid releases of variant figures so close to the first release is doing nothing for customer relations. It'll be diminishing returns if they persist in alienating a limited market.

Anyway, as with the Anakin, I'm happy with the v1 and can easily pass on this. However, I wouldn't be so quick to pass judgement on those stating that this is a poor show by hot toys - it is. For most people, buying something this expensive is prohibitive, so to see an expanded version released after you've just broken the bank and bought a far more limited version would understandably be disappointing.

While I do understand this is controversial, this is NOT an expanded version of MMS429 (as it's lacking the stuff to reproduce the Jabba Palace Luke), it's an expanded release of MMS516, announced the same day.
For HT it should be enough to not include the white inner collar to completely exclude both MMS429 looks. :dunno

I am doubtful that they have re-tailored the black suit. Wouldn't be worth the expense. Effectively all that is missing of note is the robe. But you get a whole lot more than that here. The inclusion of the v1 headsculpt (albeit looking slightly off centre) is probably the point where it crosses into controversial.

If you can source a jedi robe elsewhere, this gives you the full luke package. So, would have seemed better for the loyal hot toys fanbase to have been offered this figure with the robe at the time of the original figure release.

Guess it comes down to how you see "screwed over". Nobody has been robbed, but if you are sold something then the supplier produces the same item from under the counter with 50% added stuff and goes "oooh, look what you could have had!". Yes, nobody has technically screwed anyone over, but you could understand the customer feeling slightly miffed.

Just think maybe hot toys should revisit this particular marketing ploy.

Yeah, nothing worse than a Nerd Bully. This forum would be dull as hell if no one was allowed to have a difference of opinion. At these prices, people are allowed to speak their mind. Sure, they don't have to buy the figure, but they're entitled to have an opinion. The people who bend over and take everything HT and SS feed them are the ones who should be criticized. Because of them these companies can charge whatever they want with very little blow back.

I would be fine if it just didn't include both headsculpts or even Jabba's Blaster. Something to make the first release worth it. The cloak and binders are probably cheap enough to buy on the aftermarket now for people that didn't get the first release to have everything.

I wonder how many cancellations Sideshow will get for their version now haha. Those are the real winner, the people who said they wanted a full package and went with Sideshow; now they can order this one. It'd be funny if SS didn't distribute this release.

I might pick one of these up to complement my Jedi Luke. I think it will be cheaper than trying to get the individual parts I want.

I love the first Jedi Luke they released and have him displayed with the cloak but I really want to also do a Death Star Battle with Vader scene.

Wow rather unnecessary post, but if being a sarcastic ahole makes your day better, lol, have at it.

I love ROTJ Luke, as he was "my" Luke growing up...so even with purchasing 2 of the original Lukes (one to display with Vader in the throne room duel and one to display with Jedi cape and hood on) I'll still probably grab 2 more of the deluxe (to display as sandstorm and Endor to pair with my Scout) but I can see how this release would bother some folks. That's fair. I did a work around with the Dark Side Ani by having regular Ani get a sith eye repaint, but still felt it was a decently crappy thing to release, as most folks hadn't even gotten their original one yet. So even though I'm a buyer, I don't fault anyone for feeling a bit sore on the deluxe release

Fully agree with this post (only have 1 Luke but was contemplating a second plus buying the Endor). I'll get this one and possibly a second. I understand the frustration but don't necessarily agree with it. Too many people on this forum seem to sway from one extreme to the other. It's refreshing to see a middle of the road post that can see both sides. It's nothing we can control and at the end of the day, buy it or don't, but it's still happening. This release plus the Endor and the original gives everyone the choice of versions at a price they are comfortable with.

Obviously I agree they should have included everything in one Deluxe set up front, but looking at the existing figures I still think the original is the best, what with the cloak and the eyes looking forward. So I'm not feeling like I wasted my money on it.

And I always assumed I would need a separate Luke for the Endor look anyway, since it would just be way too many looks for one Deluxe figure, as they're each so iconic.

I don't feel like I wasted money, but just as many said I would've bought this version. I don't really have the space to display 2 Jedi Lukes right now and would've preferred all of the options in one box. If the first release was a DX with 2 bodies, then so be it, but this is what we got. I'll have to decide if I want to sell the first and recoup some money or just get both and have one sit in a box.

I was hoping for windswept hair, but I bought the Inigo sculpt already. I think the hair on that one looks better. This hair is like mildly wind blown and not as much as that shot. I don't get their promo images either, the closest to recreating that shot they didn't even use the new head sculpt

I wouldn't be mad if the Endor regular version had the windswept hair, but it doesn't. If you wanted that hair you need the deluxe, I really don't care about the deleted scene crap. It would make sense if there was a version that had all the parts you're missing and not the ones you already have. The Deluxe here is 95% of the package.

The first one was $230, so $52 for the extra head, hair, and other stuff is a good deal price wise. Still a bit annoyed. I'm going to wait until next Spooktacular and get some more points and then buy it then. If it's anything like the other release they'll make plenty.

Hmmm. Most of the thread is the debate over whether or not HT is screwing collectors over by releasing this after the other one.
For me, the real question is whether these headsculpts are any good at all. These release pics actually make the Sideshow one look even more tempting to me, quite frankly...

Hoody999
12-07-2018, 01:49 PM
Absolutely - total kick in the teeth for those that bought the first version. I am well and truly P’d off with HT for pulling this stunt.
I was only ever really interested in the Deathstar look, but being a collector in the UK I need to either jump on a pre-order as soon as it’s available or risk missing out (or paying even more over the odds than U.K. collectors already do). Given there was no guarantee HT would ever release another Jedi Luke, I had to go with the first version, regretting it now! [emoji2959]

This was my initial reaction too, However looking more closely I don't like the look of this at all.

1). Windswept hair looks terrible with this sculpt.
2). Eyes looking to the side loo worse than the existing straight ahead version
3). Who needs deleted scene clothing & goggles.
4). Teeth sculpt looks terrible.

Even if I didn't have the first one I wouldn't be interested in this.

I do love when it's so easy to pass on a HT release. My wallet is cheering !!

Hmmm. Most of the thread is the debate over whether or not HT is screwing collectors over by releasing this after the other one.
For me, the real question is whether these headsculpts are any good at all. These release pics actually make the Sideshow one look even more tempting to me, quite frankly...

It's literally the same sculpt as the original version... the eyes are just painted looking to the side instead lol. Assuming you don't have the first release, because otherwise you must think that's a bad sculpt too.

It's now become cheaper or just as cheap to go back to Sideshow even after their expensive shipping since $4 shipping plus NC sales tax actually puts me well above what SS would charge plus I get rewards. BBTS used to be my go to but now it's no longer worth the hassle with sales tax involved.

This was my initial reaction too, However looking more closely I don't like the look of this at all.

1). Windswept hair looks terrible with this sculpt.
2). Eyes looking to the side loo worse than the existing straight ahead version
3). Who needs deleted scene clothing & goggles.
4). Teeth sculpt looks terrible.

Even if I didn't have the first one I wouldn't be interested in this.

I do love when it's so easy to pass on a HT release. My wallet is cheering !!

6000 posts. Holy crap !....and still zero feedback whatever that is ! :lol

Yeah I've never understood the desire for windswept hair. If there's anything they should have done for an alternate style, it was give him the messier hair he actually had in most of the movie.

For some reason, the headsculpts looks more like current, old Mark Hamill as opposed to RotJ Hamill.

Yeah, the huge forehead does look like a shaved and de-aged version of the Crait figure, not like a young Luke.

Yeah, the Tooth Skywalker look was problematic in the proto but for some reason the teeth look even more prominent in these latest pics.

Agreed on the deleted scene stuff, but I quite like the emotive quality of the toothy sculpt even if the likeness is off compared to the original release. My ideal setup was always Jedi Luke duelling Vader and I think the grimacing sculpt (with the standard hair) suits that scene better than the slightly bored look of the original version I have. Plus I’m slightly worried HT might fix the fat suit issue on this version.
Even as I type this I realise that my comments above only relate to the Endor version (which we did know was probably coming) but I do also quite like the windswept hair as an additional dynamic pose option.
I suppose my point is that right now if I was able to choose between the original release and the Deluxe, I’d buy the Deluxe (even with the shortcomings of the sculpts). It gives the display options closest to what I hoped for from a HT Jedi Luke set.

I hope that makes sense - my ramblings above are of course purely subjective!

Even with 2 overweight Luke’s, I was all aboard the Endor version. Now, not so much. I do not like the tooth sculpt at all. The windy hair is a fail. I’ll get the deluxe and use the regular rotj sculpt with the poncho. Overall a very underwhelming release.
I’m not ordering until it is released and has some kind of a sale. Same with maul and his speeder. With these prices, it’s not worth paying full price plus sideshow’s Rip off shipping prices. Very few figures sell out anymore.

lol let's be real dude, "collectibles" basically just means "premium priced figure/prop" now. With figures a release can be the cream of the crop for 5-6 years before a better version comes along, and no one cares about the old one. There's nothing like the figures from the 70s coming out now that will actually be collectible long term, especially with Star Wars items. To me, the collectible aspect is "do I value it in my personal collection". None of this stuff is going to be worth a fraction of what it is now is 10 years. There will be newer, better versions.

Well - it seems like the most viable look for them to release from ROTJ. Also - it would go really well with Endor Luke. Maybe they would complete the diorama with the speeder bike and the scout trooper.

I've been looking through the pics from ROTJ and can't seem to find a definitive answer. Anyone know if sandstorm Luke had his vest on underneath the face/necl cloak he was wrapped in? He had it on during the sail barge scenes, but I can't tell from the footage. Same question on the Endor Pancho? He had the vest on later when he was taking with Leia but can't tell if he was vested under the Pancho.

Are there two sculpts with this? Because the main picture on their site for this figure, I coudn't tell who it was supposed to be (I didn't look at the name of the figure, I wanted to see if I could guess, and I usually can, but that main picture doesn't look like Hamill). But some of the other pictures of the figure do look like him - about half do and half don't. Very strange. Also, it looks like this one maybe has the moving eye system? Seems like they have a harder time making some figures look like the actor when it has that.

Two sculpts- took me a while to figure it out also. lol

I must say, I'm a little taken aback by the price tag.... considering much of this taken from the previous release. Like many here, I think I'll wait until I accumulate more rewards until I order.

Seems strange to me... usually any Luke Skywalker figures are first day pre-orders for me.

Like Wor Gar said, there will be plenty of Lukes this next fall.

So no rush.

I'm also surprised how long we will have to wait for the figure as well. I thought it would be more like the Dark Side Anakin and how quickly he was released along with the regular Anakin.

I just rewatched the speeder bike scene from Jedi and the exposed teeth headsculpt looks like it was drawn directly from one of those cuts. I think that sculpt will look best with the Endor rebel helmet on. Although I've got the first release, and feel somewhat kicked in the balls with this new releases, I'm still super tempted to pre-order. Mostly because Luke is my fav and I'd love to have him on a speeder bike.

Yep. When the eyes are looking straight ahead, you can simply just turn the head if you want him looking to the side. However, with the eyes already looking to the side, you can’t make it look straight ahead.

I think the problem with the windswept look is that it’s a removable hair piece. If it were just a sculpted head like the Inigo one they could probably get it looking far better. Looks like a little wig on a bald person as it basically is. The wind exposing the actual hair line is kinda critical for achieving the look of that original poster.

Probably will get the deluxe but I’m not feeling confident about selling off parts from the original release. Who’s gonna need Luke pants or a shirt this time next year. Plus it’ll be tempting to keep the straight on eyes sculpt. I see the 3 ROTJ cloaks at TA were promptly snatched up today/yesterday.

I was upset about this at first. I had ordered the first ROTJ Luke and this felt like a bit of a slap. I now feel like this is more of a parted up DX (think bespin Luke). We all know that if HT released a two body figure, the price would be similar to the original plus this deluxe release. My this-morning-self would be miffed, but I am surprisingly on board with this now. :lightsabe

I see a lot of people are upset with this release because they brought the first one. I think the first one holds its own.

Hey now. What happened to this guy?:


Or just let people enjoy things instead of constant bashing and attacks. Get over it please.

This is what kills me. Someone finally made a toy of the version of his lightsaber that's used most in the film instead of the "hero" version.

Nice catch. Another reason to grab this version, is that for the light up saber too?


So I guess ROTJ Rancor Luke is coming next with giant bone and look of distress?

:lol

Hang in there...they put the Stormtrooper up during the week and the Dlx version yesterday.
Only figure i haven't seen go up yet is the Dlx R2D2.

Yeah isn’t the new Bucky up as well on PC?

We knew this was coming. Don’t understand the confusion or anger. Oh wait, that’s right. It’s HT collectors after all :slap:lol

Yeah. I see someone using the word livid to describe their feelings about this release. Anyone who gets livid over the release of a doll has much bigger problems they need to worry about.

I just rewatched the speeder bike scene from Jedi and the exposed teeth headsculpt looks like it was drawn directly from one of those cuts. I think that sculpt will look best with the Endor rebel helmet on. Although I've got the first release, and feel somewhat kicked in the balls with this new releases, I'm still super tempted to pre-order. Mostly because Luke is my fav and I'd love to have him on a speeder bike.

It was. And they missed, badly.

If by look of distress, you mean his eyes painted looking in the opposite direction, then probably, yes... :lol

The V2 lightsaber only comes with deluxe. Well played HT. While I would’ve preferred this in the beginning. It’s better than me buying two of the 429 release. Almost bought another.

Are we sure of that? Both images that show what's included show the "hero" version hilt, and that insert is lifted from the original Jedi Luke solicitation images. I wonder if someone at Hot Toys can answer that. Has it been set up at Secret Base yet?

The product description on the deluxe on sideshow says additional weathered hilt only available with deluxe.

I stared lovingly at my toys for a while. Both anakin’s are awesome. How did they do Hayden so well but hamill and ford are never great? Also, I may need a second speeder bike.

I imagine this will release sooner than suggested . It says Third qtr 2019 or July-Sep 2019

But don’t be surprised if we see it in the spring
