George Lucas has joined the Galactic Empire. It’s tragic, but it surely have to be true, since he’s the most recent determine in Hasbro’s beloved Star Wars: The Black Collection toyline, sporting Stormtrooper armor and a E-11 Blaster Rifle, the standard-issue weapon for the Emperor’s troopers. I doubt this flip to the Darkish Facet will stop collectors from choosing the determine up, although.

Lucas’ latest plastic incarnation will arrive subsequent yr, simply in time for Lucasfilm’s fiftieth anniversary, in commemoration of the founding father of the corporate that gave us Star Wars. Along with the blaster, he comes with a detachable helmet and a likeness that’s not significantly flattering, however what are you able to do. (Spoiler: He’s solely disguised as a Stormtrooper. Phew!)

This isn’t the director’s first motion determine, nevertheless! That honor goes to a 3.75-inch toy launched as an unique on the 2002 Star Wars Celebration, making it fairly the sought-after determine. Weirdly and/or delightfully, he was labeled as X-Wing pilot Jorg Sacul, who was stated to have grown up on Tatooine, practically died in a T-16 Skyhopper crash (a lot as Lucas practically did in a automotive crash in his youth), joined the Imperial navy, grew to become prime of his class, defected to the Rebels, and have become a famend flight commander and teacher. Oh, and he was “in all probability” Power-sensitive, too.

There have been different figures after that, though not practically so splendidly accompanied by biographies. He was equally decked out in Stormtrooper armor for the Saga Assortment sequence in 2006, which was solely accessible as a Hasbro mail-in. He had a mainstream launch when Hasbro made a determine of Baron Papanoida, the alien Lucas himself performed in Revenge of the Sith as his solely cameo within the movies. However should you ever wished a determine of George in his common garments, you’d want to return to 2002, when Scorching Toys—sure, that Scorching Toys—made an especially unlicensed determine of Lucas, calling him solely “The Director.”

You won’t have the easiest (or cheapest) time tracking that toy down, but the new Black Series figure is a different story. Pre-orders open tomorrow, September 29, at 1:oo p.m. ET on Amazon.
