Phase II Luke Skywalker (Stormtrooper Disguise) with a new portrait and some additional paint applications, he is quite nicely done. Let's check out Luke Skywalker (Death Star Escape) after the break...
Height: 5 7/8ths
Articulation: Swivel/hinge, double hinged knees, swivel
thighs, ball jointed hips, a ball jointed abdomen, swivel/hinge shoulders,
swivel biceps, double hinged elbows, swivel/hinge wrists, a hinged neck,
and a ball jointed head.
Accessories: Blastech E-11 blaster rifle, comlink, a Stormtrooper helmet, and a display stand.
Non-Scalper Price: $20 dollars
* On the left is the 2019 Luke while the 2015 Luke is on the right. As you can see, these two use the exact same "shortened" Stormtrooper body. The only difference between the two is that the headsculpts are different and the 2015 Luke features a clean paintjob while the 2019 Luke represents Luke in the Death Star trash compactor during his run in with the dianoga. For the full story check out that review as I'm just going to be hitting the highlights.
* The articulation on this mold is starting to feel a bit outdated (the articulation on most newer figures is so smooth now) but the sculpt is still really strong. Luke is indeed shorter than your average Stormtrooper with a shorter torso. He also has a unique belt that features a clip to store his comlink and with the grappling hook visible on the back. The main difference that sets this figure's armor apart from previous releases are the various marks of grime and gunk from the Death Star trash compactor. It's not overdone and looks pretty convincing.
* Here's Luke's helmet. It's the same as the helmet on the previous figure but it also has the nasty paint applications on it. It looks great, although Luke definitely had thrown his helmet away by the time he was in the trash compactor.
* Like the majority of figures in the Black Series, Luke comes with an E-11. This is the same as pretty much every other one released in the line. Nice sculpt, though no extra paint applications on it.
* Luke still has the tiny comlink, a device which is crucial to the scene this figure is from. How else are you going to call C-3PO to save everyone's bacon without the comlink?
* Luke comes with the same display stand as the Imperial Jumptrooper which makes me think Hasbro might be including these with exclusive Black Series figures going forward. I hate to knock an extra but after having one of these for a couple of months and now playing with this new one, this seems like such a useless stand. The foot clip is too small for both figures it has come with thus far and the placement is weird. It's such an odd design and just seems poorly thought out.

versions of Luke from the Galoob Micro Machines Classic Characters (2nd Edition) set, the Ice Planet Hoth playset, the 2-1B Mini head, the Mini Heads set, and the Hasbro Endor Forest Battle, as well as the green Jedi Luke Skywalker from Micro Force advent calendar, multiple Black Series Lukes including (Bespin Outfit), (X-Wing Pilot), (Jedi Knight) , (Stormtrooper Disguise), in Hoth Gear with Wampa, Jedi Master, the deluxe Luke Skywalker (Jedi Master) on Ahch-To, the standard classic Luke Skywalker, the SDCC Luke with the X-34 Landspeeder, and the Centerpiece Luke Skywalker. Oh, and the Hero Mashers Luke Skywalker and Luke Skywalker Vs. Darth Vader.
Guess what? I've now reviewed so many Luke Skywalker figures that he has earned the distinct honor of having his own review archive. Check out Tosche Station for a mini-archive of Luke Skywalker reviews!
