Ah, Sideshow, how you steal all my money!
Chances are you may have a few extra bucks after the holiday season and you're burning up inside to buy something awesome (or pay the rent...decisions, decisions). If you're looking to add to your collection of pop culture collectibles and happen to love Star Wars, particularly THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK, then this is your bag, I assure you. Sideshow Collectibles is offering not only Commander Skywalker (Luke to you), but his ill-fated Tauntaun from their rebel base on the ice planet Hoth. Complete with all the trimmings of their sixth scale line, this highly-detailed set is one of the best the company has offered in their Star Wars line and a must for fans of the series or just fans of badass figures.
Take a peek!:
Here's the rundown from Sideshow:
From Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, recreate your favorite moments leading up to the Battle of Hoth with the Sideshow Collectibles Commander Luke Skywalker - Hoth Sixth Scale Figure.
Fearless and vigilant, the Rebel leader comes to life with an incredibly screen-accurate portrait of young Skywalker as portrayed by actor Mark Hamill. Bundled up in authentically replicated cold-weather fatigues, featuring hand-tailored insulated clothing and an additional portrait with headgear and snow goggles, Luke is prepared to head out into the freezing wilderness surrounding Echo Base armed with his trusty lightsaber, blaster, and macrobinoculars. There's no telling what dangers he will encounter while on patrol...from a nearby 'meteorite' crash, to hungry wampas, to a full blown Imperial invasion - the Commander of the Rebel Alliance had better be ready for anything!
You can preorder Commander Skywalker and his Tauntaun here! And remember, if you're on a budget, Sideshow also offers a payment plan, making these things much more affordable.
