Lovely item. Was a bit concerned about buying from a European supplier as opposed from mainland UK but the item arrived very quickly and was excellently packaged. Thank you Figurine Collector FR.

I paid £35 for this figure which is very expensive for a toy. However it is #1 in the 6 inch Black Series and I couldn't resist. I agree with everyone else's feelings that Hasbro's UK distribution of 6 inch Black Series is very poor. It seems as though Toys R Us, Smyths and The Entertainer have no plans to stock them any more even though new waves are being released all the time. Perhaps Hasbro has determined that 6 inch line appeals more to collectors rather than the mass toy market. Unfortunately for fools like me, it means I'll be paying £10-15 over the original RRP of £15.

All that being said, I love the Black Series, the quality and attention to detail if excellent. I don't think the £25-30 price tag will put me off continue to collect them.

The new 6" Black Series is a real new direction for Hasbro and the first two waves, including the Luke Skywalker X-Wing figure havent disappointed.

Luke is a sturdy feeling figure that can achieve a number of "action" poses that the smaller figures often couldnt without looking unnatural. He comes with a removable X-Wing helmet, light sabre and blaster. The packaging is a box rather than a blister card so for collectors you can still "keep the packaging" if you deem this a future investment. Luke sits very well with the R2 D2 figure, also from wave 1. £20 in the UK is the standard price for these, but the less desireable figures will drop lower. It's not as cheap as Neca, but does feel a better quality,

My downside is not about the figure, but about the distribution and choices Hasbro are already making. The case quantities or distribution is not matched to demand so chase figures (which I know will always exist) like the wave 1 Sandtrooper, wave 2 Boba Fett or the very elusive wave 3 Stormtrooper become difficult/impossible to find in the UK at a reasonable price. I am already without the Han in carbonite SDCC exlusive as that is way over what I would pay for a figure and am looking to struggle to find just one Stormtrooper whilst Greedo's and Leia's still clog the shelves. This range is wonderful and has a bright future, but until distribution is evened out some collectors will be switched off when they cant get what they want at a fair price.

When I bought this product I was hoping to get a new one to add to my collection, however when I received the packed the box was ripped and cellotaped as if it'd already been opened and then looking through the plastic film at the front I could see that the product was dirty and already been used. Would not recommend.

Have been looking for a decent Luke figure for a while, without spending a fortune. This is a good figure for the price - and out of the two available in this range - this is by far the better one

My nephew loved this as a birthday present, the packaging was in excellent condition and the figure has loads of detail to it. Great birthday present for children or collectors.

Well priced item, less than the usual inflated prices on other sites.

The item itself is well worth the money, being the best version of this particular character, and proves that the new black series 6" figures are excellent.

These are great if you wish to collect them all, but at £20 each, you could end up spending too much for the whole series. They have very poor resemblance to the actual character. Obviously, from their outfit and accessories you can guess who they are supposed to represent. However, if you are used to the detail of Hot Toys figures, you'll not want to waste any money here.
I was tempted, but decided to save up for the 1/6 scale 12 inch Hot Toys figures instead.
