Figures That I was Lucky Enough To Find In The Wild - Star Wars Saga Legends Luke Skywalker (Snow Speeder Pilot)
A couple summers ago ,I found myself wanting to bolster my contemporary Star Wars collection with a sorely needed Luke Skywalker figure.All I had was 5 bucks In my pocket and while I knew that 5 Below always had a nice variation of 5 dollar figures to choose from,It was way too far and out of my way.So I hit up our local Marshall's,a clothing store with a small toy section that always carried clearanced action figures.It's where I picked up most of my G.I. Joe Rise Of Cobra figures,for about 3 bucks a piece.Of course I wasn't expecting to find Star Wars figures there,let alone any Luke Skywalker's. In fact I was open to snagging up whatever I found because frankly,I was jonesing for any kind of action figure ..action.I let out a resounding "Fuck Yeah!" when I saw this Luke Skywalker Snow Speeder Pilot figure on clearance for about 3 bucks and change!My Jedi instincts paid off .Now It was off to the checkout counter to press my luck and see If I could use my Jedi powers of persuasion to convince the clerk to let me walk out without paying.It worked,but I am an honorable Jedi,so I left three crumpled up dollar bills and some change on the counter before leaving.With a wave of my hand the exit doors opened,but that had little to do with the force,the doors just had a motion sensor.Saga Legends Snow Speeder Luke Is a great figure.The removable plus highly detailed helmet ,equip - able Light Saber and grappling hook accessory make this one of my favorite figures In my collection.Luckily,I was able to find It on the cheap as he Is selling anywhere from 10 to 20 bucks on Ebay and Amazon.com.
