"The Last Jedi" - Hot Toys' 'Luke Skywalker"

From Hot Toys, Sneak Peek the deluxe, 1/6 scale 'Luke Skywalker' figure, in the likeness of actor Mark Hamill, as he appears in "Star Wars: The Last Jedi":

"...the figure features a newly-developed head sculpt, outfit with 'poncho', a 'lightsaber', a variety of accessories, and a specially designed character-themed figure stand. The deluxe version also includes a highly detailed backpack, and a lightning rod.

"'Luke Skywalker' (Hamill), the son of 'Anakin Skywalker/'Darth Vader' and 'Padmé Amidala' is an aging, but powerful 'Jedi Master' in self-imposed exile on the planet 'Ahch-To'.

"During filming of the original 'Star Wars' trilogy, director George Lucas informed Hamill he would be needed to reprise the role again, when he was middle aged. Lucas further explained that his role as Luke would be like handing 'Excalibur to the next generation'.

"Hamill had no reaction at the time, as he thought of making 'Star Wars' films decades in the future as an abstract concept. Hamill only learned of the sequel trilogy over the summer of 2012 at a 'Star Wars' celebration..."
