Now, admittedly this pack holds a bit more nostalgia in many cases.

Celebrating 3 iconic looks for arguably the greatest fantasy hero of all time this 3 pack is fantastic. What we have is Luke’s Death Star 1 stormtrooper disguise, the X-Wing pilot jumpsuit, and his Jedi Knight getup from the beginning of Return of the Jedi. Unlike the Sith Trooper just about everything that can be known is well known when it concerns the “son of Skywalker”. This is also my first look at the face printing technology being applied to the 3.75 inch figures and I have to say that it’s impeccable.

Let’s start in simply with accessories. Each figure comes with a small set of their own accessories. Starting with trooper Luke he comes with the standard E11 blaster and the helmet to finish his armor.

One thing that should be pointed out is that trooper Luke does have the holster for the E11 on the back of his belt and even though the thing is hollowed out and ready to go it really doesn’t seem like it's designed to actually hold the gun. With a good push it seems you can get the blaster a little less than halfway in. A little annoying but it’s small potatoes for a figure this good.

Next we’ll look at X-Wing Luke. Very simply, he comes with a simple DL-44 blaster that he grips perfectly and his wonderful pilot helmet that we’ll talk more about in just a bit.

Now what’s great about his pilot helmet is that it’s made of a very rubbery adaptive plastic. It makes the helmet unintentionally modular and great for other figures therein. If you wanna take your ROTJ Luke and do the 30 seconds of screen time with Luke leaving Tatooine to seek out Yoda on Dagobah, for the 2nd time then look no further. It’s very doable.

Speaking of ROTJ Luke let’s talk about him. He’s the only Luke of the 3 to come with a lightsaber (His green saber to be specific). In addition to this he has the blaster he yanked off one of Jabba’s goons along with what is possibly the best soft goods I’ve seen Hasbro produce to date. The blaster fits in his right hand with no problem. The lightsaber goes in both without issue. Luke’s Jedi cloak is stitched in some way, shape, or form that makes it hug to his head in the exact right way. It’s truly impressive.

Just to get it out of the way the faces on all three of these Lukes are magnificent. The old time GI Joe faces are officially a thing of the past.

In terms of articulation each stands in a category all their own. All have good ball jointed heads with the exception of X-Wing Luke with a two sided ball joint and some magnificent head movement as opposed to being simply good. All have tried and true hinged shoulders with good reliably deep single joint elbows. All have hinged hands with the exception of trooper Luke who’s relying only on the 360 degree swivel. Both X-Wing and trooper Luke have good deep torso articulation with the feature being absent on ROTJ Luke though it’s admittedly not very missed. All but Pilot Luke have a waist swivel. Now getting down to the hips They all start the same where it’s a rotating hinge that you move in the right direction and then hinge in your preferred direction. Exceptionally, Pilot Luke also sports a slightly clumsy thigh swivel. Beyond that all 3 figures go down to some single joint knees and hinged feet. On the whole very well articulated.

Some particularly good articulation comes from trooper Luke. The next time Vader is looking to aggressively hide an apprentice’s existence it’s important to note that trooper Luke does fine with some Gears of War crouches.

Hasbro also made him a Tae Kwon Do black belt... for the good it will do him.

For scale there’s not much to be surprised about with these 3 figures.

Here we have the 3 up against a c3po from the Revenge of the Sith line along with a 5 inch Batman and a Pizza Spider-Man.

Besides some points of articulation there’s not much that’s shocking when it comes to these 3 figures. All the same these 3 figures are great and classic in all the right ways. If you ever see any of these figures either single packed or in this great 3 pack I would highly recommend that you do yourself the favor."
