Since a few people have asked, here's the thread to discuss the upcoming "Retro Luke Skywalker - Jedi Knight Outfit" figure. No pictures of the figure just yet.

Will these actually be easy to get? Or are they going to be a pain like the other original trilogy waves?

While I am out on the DIsney era Retro figures, I will still scoop up Retro figures based on the OT.

Jedi Luke was an awesome choice. I almost would have expected Hasbro to re-issue Darth Vader on his Jedi-era cardback.

Some people are still under the impression that these are the old molds, don't forget these are new sculpts based on the old figures, so I think we will het flesh molded head Luke.

This is the figure from the ROTJ wave I am looking forward to the most, just please make sure it's a flesh tone plastic face!

This is my absolute favorite Star Wars figure from my childhood so I should be excited. But if it differs even the slightest from the original, it will be so off-putting.

I'd be all for a redo of Vader on the Jedi Card... they could even use the recent Retro Kenobi Version of Vader on a Jedi card

well none of the others really have differences, so I wouldn't expect that

There are slight differences in the face paint apps that take away from that vintage look. I was a little disappointed w/ Original Luke and Luke Bespin because of this. Leia Hoth also looked a bit off. The Han Solo and Lando figures looked good though so they may get this one right.

Since they already gave us a blue saber with Snowspeeder Luke, I suspect we‘ll get green this time out…

The other question... grey palace blaster or black?

Edit: As in how a lot of figures like Lando have darker weapons than the original figures, I'm not suggesting there is a common vintage variant with a black blaster.

I doubt he would have a black blaster. I think the real question is will it be straight up gray or more of a brownish gray?

this is an exciting one. Itll be interesting to see if they cast the head differently and avoid that odd colour?
I have a few of the old school cast head/painted on hair Lukes and they’re soooo much better than painted face / scuffed nose version. I hope like hell they go this route with cast head in skin tone rather than hair
