First announced on their site early last month, Sideshow Collectibles is now accepting pre-orders for their new Luke Skywalker (Bespin Fatigues) Premium Format Figure. The figure carries a price tag of $559.99 and is scheduled to begin shipping out to customers sometime during the April 2018 – June 2018 time frame.
Standing at about 20” in height, Luke prepares to meet his destiny on a Cloud City base inspired by his famous duel with Darth Vader. The statue has an authentic Episode V costume sewn with fabric and pleather elements, with realistic fatigue to show just how far Luke has come in his quest to become a Jedi.
Costume Fabrication Artist, Esther Skandunas said: “Working on this piece was a fun and engaging challenge. Luke’s costume is very detailed. As such, we worked with copious amounts of reference material to ensure everything was as screen accurate as possible, down to the correct placement of his pockets. The costume and its coloration add that extra dynamism to the statue that captures the fullness of Luke Skywalker’s story in Episode V.”
He comes holding his blue lightsaber, which has a light-up LED feature, as he prepares to defend himself against the dangers Bespin has in store. His belt comes with an additional pistol to holster in his belt while his saber is in action. The Exclusive edition of this statue comes with an alternate right hand holding his blaster pistol, with a sheathed lightsaber to hang from his belt for added display options.
