UPDATE: Hasbro Officially Announces Luke (Jedi Master) and Rey (Jedi Training) Black Series 2-Pack!

The 2-pack figure set clearly states Luke as Jedi Master and Rey as Jedi Training, so I guess it’s not time for the Jedi to end after all! Here’s the image of the figures:
Much to our disappointment, Luke comes with no accessories, meaning no blaster, and most importantly no lightsaber! Rey on the other hand is loaded. She has Anakin’s blue lightsaber, which recent marketing campaigns now refer to as “Rey’s lightsaber”. She also comes with the blaster Han Solo gave her and her staff, which is still around for some reason…
Luke’s Jedi attire is certainly on the light side (literally), although we know that’s not always foreshadowing in Star Wars as Luke wore all black in Return of the Jedi. It appears he has a pouch of some sort on his belt as well.
Rey’s outfit is a mixture of crossing gray tones with dark and light underneath, again not reading into it tonally but it’s certainly a interesting look. No longer wearing the rags of Jakku, Rey looks ready for her next step into becoming a Jedi!
There is a lot of speculation that this 2-pack will be an exclusive this week at San Diego Comic Con.
