UPDATE: Figure below has been debunked (Thanks JM Prater). It’s a custom made figure. Pretty nice job though.
Below you’ll find a couple images of what appears to be Luke Skywalker from the Star Wars Black Series line of figures. This image looks spot-on to the image of Luke that leaked a few weeks back.

Strangely, with all the product pictures that have leaked over the past few weeks, we have yet to see anything for the characters they haven’t wanted us to see. Prior to these images Luke, Maz Kanata and Supreme Leader Snoke and whoever Max Von Sydow is playing had yet to be seen.
Beginning September 2, over “18 hours in 15 cities and 12 countries, the event will see highlights from the range of epic merchandise revealed in a rolling New Year’s Eve style celebration featuring top digital stars from the Maker Studios network.”
“Over the course of 18 hours, some of Maker Studios’ biggest stars will each be unboxing a new toy from the Star Wars: The Force Awakens product line in a different city around the world and sharing the experience live on YouTube.” said Leslie Ferraro, President, Disney Consumer Products. “We’ve seen tremendous excitement for these new products and can’t wait to see the global reaction from the Star Wars fan community.”
The Star Wars YouTube channel will host the live stream, which kicks off with the first unboxing in Sydney, Australia at 7:45 a.m. local time on Thursday, Sept. 3 (5:45 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, Sept. 2), with the grand finale at Lucasfilm in San Francisco at 8 a.m. PDT (11 a.m. EDT) on Thursday, Sept. 3. Each of the 15 locations will reveal a new product inspired by Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
I know I’ll be tuned in, how about you?
