The "Blue Milk Luke" Lego minifigure that came with the deluxe edition of Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is being scalped on eBay and going for up to the same price as the deluxe edition itself.
When Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga was announced a long time ago in a galaxy right here, a deluxe edition was revealed alongside it, containing a special steelbook case made to look like Han Solo in carbonite and a unique minifigure showing Luke Skywalker from A New Hope with a blue milk moustache, all for around £50.
That deluxe edition sold out almost instantly and has become pretty rare, which has had the knock-on effect of making the Lego minifigure that comes with it a rare collector's item. As reported by Nintendo Life, the Lego minifigure is currently being scalped on eBay for up to the same price as the deluxe edition itself, and sometimes even more.
Scanning through eBay provides a massive range of prices for Blue Milk Luke, ranging from selling for £25, which seems fairly reasonable for a rare item, to up to £75. Nintendo Life shows that some listings even have the minifigure going for more than $200, although that seems to be limited to America at the moment as prices in the UK are reasonably low.
When you consider that the deluxe edition of The Skywalker Saga was only £10-20 more for the extra content that it comes with, it's surprising to see the Luke minifigure go for even more than that. It's likely due to the deluxe edition selling out so fast, combined with the fact that The Skywalker Saga has been selling and reviewing pretty well since it launched.
Depressingly, this isn't even the first time this has happened with a Star Wars product in the last month, as Cal Kestis' lightsaber hilt came to Galaxy's Edge recently and was selling for nearly triple its intended price on the first day.
