Sideshow Collectibles has steadily worked to improve its 12-inch Star Wars brand. They’re not getting the same amount of fanfare as Hot Toys, but the gap is definitely closing. With their Deluxe Return of the Jedi Luke Skywalker figure, that gap gets pretty tight.
When Hot Toys revealed its ROTJ Luke, I griped/mildly complained that this edition wasn’t fully complete as it skipped his Endor look. The Sideshow Collectibles version is a complete Return of the Jedi Luke as it covers every possible variant. There’s the cloak and vest from Jabba’s Palace; the Endor helmet and poncho and the final duel vest-less look. All for just a few dollars more than the Hot Toys figure.
I still think Hot Toys comes out ahead with its head sculpt, but this isn’t necessarily the slam dunk that I would have thought. Especially since the Sideshow version has a neutral expression, which allows for more versatility in posing. Sideshow certainly improved on its earlier Jedi Luke figure. The moment I started collecting Hot Toys Star Wars figures, the Sideshow Jedi Luke was one of the first figures I sold off. Now, it might actually be a toss up as to which figure is worth adding to the Return of the Jedi display.
‘I’ll never turn to the Dark Side. You’ve failed, your highness. I am a Jedi, like my father before me.’
The Force is strong with this one. Sideshow is proud to present the Luke Skywalker Deluxe Sixth Scale Figure from Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.
The Luke Skywalker Deluxe Sixth Scale Figure captures Luke’s journey through Return of the Jedi with an incredible variety of customizable display options. Recreate key scenes from the Star Wars saga with the three distinct looks included with the Luke Skywalker Deluxe figure- Jabba’s Palace Luke, Endor Luke, and Jedi Knight Luke.
Travel to Jabba’s Palace with the Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker in disguise. Featuring a detailed portrait of the character’s appearance in Star Wars Episode VI, Luke Skywalker wears a hooded brown cloak over his iconic black Jedi outfit, including a long sleeve shirt and pants. The figure also includes the gray tunic and sash as worn while infiltrating the thuggish gangster’s stronghold. Remove the gray tunic and attach Luke’s black leather-like belt with a pouch and saber hook to recreate his Jedi look from his final showdown with Darth Vader.
Then, hop on a speeder and travel to the forest moon of Endor with Luke Skywalker dressed in his belt and camouflage poncho, along with articulated black boots. The figure includes a portrait with the detailed likeness of Luke Skywalker wearing a non-removable Commando Helmet. Evade Scout Troopers and save the Rebellion with the Endor Luke look.
The Luke Skywalker Deluxe Sixth Scale Figure also includes eleven different swap-out hands in a variety of poses including Force Gesture hands, bare and gloved fists, and assorted grip hands for holding his DL-18 Blaster Pistol or lightsaber with removable blade.
