“Looks like I’m going nowhere. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m gonna go finish cleaning those droids ” Before Luke Skywalker became a Jedi, he spent his younger years working on his uncle’s moisture farm on Tatooine. There we see one of the most iconic scenes from the Skywalker Saga. After arguing with his Uncle Owen about joining the academy he walks outside and looks into the horizon as the twin suns set over Tatooine. Well, thanks to Diamond Select Toys / Gentle Giant, we can now add that scene to our Star Wars Statue Collections (twin suns not included) with their Star Wars: A New Hope – Luke Skywalker (Dreamer) Premier Collection Statue.
Thanks again to our friends over at Diamond Select Toys / Gentle Giant, I am able to share with you my review of the Star Wars: A New Hope – Luke Skywalker (Dreamer) Premier Collection Statue. The 1:7 Scale statue is limited to 3000 pieces and retails between $135 to $150. This statue is available now at Gentle Giant and for pre-order at Entertainment Earth.
Star Wars: A New Hope – Luke Skywalker (Dreamer) Premier Collection Statue
Pros Of The Diamond Select / Gentle Giant A New Hope Luke (Dreamer) Statue
- Again just like the past two statues I have reviewed, Luke is packaged well. With Styrofoam around the whole statue, he will be safe from that trip to your house from the sands of Tatooine.
- The sculpt on this figure looks amazing. It depicts Luke as he appears on Tatooine staring into the horizon as the twin suns set (suns not included).
- The paint application does a great job making all of the little details from the weather look of Luke Skywalker’s outfit to the sand on the base stand out on this statue.
- Coming in two pieces, this statue is very easy to assemble. Also, the weight of the statue with its base makes it very secure while on display.
Cons of the Diamond Select / Gentle Giant A New Hope Luke (Dreamer) Statue
- This statue comes in two pieces, Luke and the base. There is also no articulation to this statue so the pose you see is the pose you get.
- While the paint job is great on this statue, but the eyes give Luke somewhat of an animated look when looking closely at it.
- Luke’s details look great, but I would have liked for it to have more around the base or even a backdrop of the twin suns to go with it to really push the feeling of this statue even more.
My Final Thoughts
If you are a Luke Skywalker fan and collector then you will want to add this statue to your collection. Just looking at it takes you back to Star Wars: A New Hope, as young Skywalker stares into the horizon, under the twin suns. Yeah I know I said the eyes give Luke somewhat of an animated look, but it does not take away from the overall quality of this statue. Buy with confidence, as this is another amazing product from Diamond Select Toys / Gentle Giant. On a scale of 1 to 5 Hashtags, I give this statue 3.5 Hashtags.
