Characters in Star Wars go through many arcs during thei saga. For example, Luke Skywalker starts the very first movie of the series as a simple farmboy and ends up being the last Jedi. And then the movie series ends and that's all that ever happens. Since characters go through these changes, it only makes sense to have multiple versions of them in Star Wars: Legion. that's why we're getting an Operative version of him soon. In this preview, you can get a peek at what he'll be like.
From the post:
The path of a Jedi is difficult. One must sacrifice much if they hope to become a master of the Force and fully commit themself to peace and tranquility if they are to resist the sway of the dark side. This is especially true of Luke Skywalker, who not only endeavored to become a Jedi during an era when the order had been all but exterminated, but who also had to confront the legacy of evil granted by his father, the infamous Darth Vader.
Despite these obstacles, Skywalker became one of the most renowned Jedi Knights in the galaxy, using the Force at pivotal moments throughout the Galactic Civil War to secure crucial victories for the Rebel Alliance. After using the Force in battles from Hoth to Endor, Luke Skywalker is ready to lend his power to your Rebel armies with the Luke Skywalker Operative Expansionfor Star Wars™: Legion!
This expansion contains one unpainted, finely detailed soft plastic Luke Skywalker miniature wielding his iconic lightsaber along with a unit card and all the tokens you need to deploy him into battle. Already a highly skilled combatant, three command cards that can be used interchangeably with Luke Skywalker's command cards from the Star Wars: Legion Core Set allow Luke Skywalker to augment his prodigious abilities, giving you even more options for using him in the midst of a heated battle.
