On Friday the 1st of May, Hasbro held a live stream on their Hasbro Pulse Facebook channel hosted by Patrick Schneider and Eric Franer. The 55 minute show was a mix of unboxing of product that is about to hit shelves - mostly around The Child - as well as reveals for the Star Wars lines for Autumn 2020.
The feed gave us the long awaited reveal of the Luke Skywalker from Dagobah. He will be part of a two pack along with a brand new Yoda figure, rescaled correctly to sit in the training harness. Yoda will have a second head sculpt, sculpted to look like he is concentrating on raising up the X-wing.
Luke will feature alternative hands, with the second set allowing him to be posed (apparently unaided) in the single handstand position.
This Deluxe release is available at most retailers with a release this Autumn. Like the Probe Droid, the box is a hybrid between the Black Series - with logo's for the 40th Anniversary utilised on the box front as well as a tramline round the figure window.

About Me : As a child of the 70's and 80's I grew up in a golden age for action figures and in my youth bought and sold myself through collections of Star Wars, G.I. Joe (Action Force) and M.A.S.K. while also dabbling in He-Man, Transformers and Ghostbusters. Roll forward and I am now reliving that Youth with the action figures of today and am a collector and fan of the larger 6-8 inch figures from my favourite movie and TV licences - including the ones mentioned above, but also the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Doctor Who and the Aliens. I launched The Mephitsu Archives in 2015 with a view of creating a UK focused site or these figures where fans can pick up the latest action figure news, read reviews and get information on where to buy their figures and what is currently on store shelves. I hope I am delivering that to you guys...
