    Figured I might as well start a thread for these items, seen on a few other toys, but these are the best view so far. These accessories come with the SH Figuarts Island Luke figure, and are presumably seen in the film then.

    Its been pointed out that the compass is seen in better detail in Battlefront 2. The necklace sure as hell looks like a lightsaber core with a crystal, similar to Kylo's visible saber code.

    He also sounds nothing like Hamill. It was weird (SPOILER ALERT) playing as him in BFII, and having it look/sound nothing like Luke. And there's quite a bit of dialog that is said as Luke, also. You'd think they could have done better.

    The model looks okay in gameplay, just not the mocap. And yeah, terrible impression. I think I heard that he was played by the guy who did Kylo too, and he sounded alright. :unsure

    I saw some of these references on other toys. Not as good, but clearly important.

    Totally looks like the necklace is a Kyber crystal. Maybe Vader’s?

    That's the rumor. I can't see Luke walking around with an object that probably has a lot of Dark Side clinging to it. It's one thing to hold on to something that was Anakin's, but Vaders? If so that doesn't make sense. I thought maybe it was actually a key since he's looking for something.

    I could be wrong but i believe i read somewhere that this was the point of yoda hiding out on dagobah. He was guarding an area that had a large amount of dark energy and it hid him from being detected.

    Curious as to what it's significance is if it's so old and being described as a 'trophy' (seems rather un-Jedi-like). Could end up being one of those props that's just there and receives no explanation in the film.

    SPOILER:
















    The Visual Dictionary makes it sound like, much like Lor San Tekka, Luke traveled the galaxy collecting artifacts and such relating to the Jedi trying to rebuild the lore. This is most likely one of those, since it's supposed to be quite old.

    But why actually WEAR it? Youd think that would have a bad influence on him...

    I'm kind of hoping (hope hope hope) that it is the crystal of an ex-Emperor's Hand that held a special place in Luke's heart.

    I think it is the piece of shattered crystal Kylo needs to complete his saber and make it more stable.

    Doubtful, considering Vader's hand and saber went down the reactor shaft when Luke sliced it off. I doubt he had time to do down there and retrieve it before the explosion. Unless it was another crystal Vader had on him as a back up.

    In the context of the rest of the pages for Luke, the "recovered jedi crusader pendant" sounds like just another of the artifacts that Luke found in the ruins of the first Jedi temple.

    My guess is that it is just a call-back to ancient history from the KOTOR age, when there were whole armies of Sith, and this is just a fragment of a red crystal from some ancient Sith warrior's lightsaber, collected as a trophy and turned into a pendant.

    Instead of it being some weird connection to Vader, I would think it is just something Luke found and chose to wear, perhaps as a reminder to himself that Jedi were defeating the Sith thousands of years before he ever existed, and that he was merely the last of the Jedi to accomplish the same thing.

    I really like the inclusion of these kinds of things. One thing I always wanted to see, but the old EU never really got into, was Luke going off to recover Jedi artifacts, teaching materials, etc. I think from time to time they mentioned Luke finding a holocron or something, but you never got to hear the story involved.

    So even though the necklace got a nice closeup shot, I dont think Luke ever wore it, and neither prop was really used. :/

    I wonder if that is how Luke was masking or shutting off the force. By surrounding his light side self with the dark side energy of a sith crystal, palpatine's compass, and the dark hole on the island. There is a lot of talk of balance in the film and that would be another way to achieve it.

    Just a thought.

    At best, this would be a loose connection to Revan when he was still a Jedi, rather than the crystal from his sith lightsaber.

    Even then, this theory only exists due to it being labeled "Recovered Jedi Crusader Pendant" in the TLJ Visual Dictionary, and the Revanchists also being known as the "Jedi Crusaders": http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Revanchist

    It is really just speculation based on the phrase "Jedi Crusader", which is pretty thin. Since this temple on Ahch-To would pre-date KOTOR, and this is an ancient artifact found there, I can't see how it would actually have any connection at all to Revan.

    It's still cool though!

    Re: TLJ Luke's Necklace & Compass (Spoilers)

    I kind of wish the fandom as a whole could just get away from KOTOR, but I’ve always preferred Tales of the Jedi, so I’m biased.

    Either that necklace is an old concept or people have jumped on it reaaaallll fast, because I have been seeing a lot glowing crystal star wars labeled necklaces on etsy. Not entirely accurate, but a similar concept.

    I think the compass is what Luke used to find the first Jedi temple on Ahch-To.

    Does anyone have any ideas about how big it is? When Luke holds it in the game, it looks about 2-1/2” diameter and maybe 1” thick when closed. Any other thoughts?

    I've started working on the necklace. I'm currently making a prototype out of wood, because I have that, planning to make molds from that and cast in acrylic in 3 pieces. I also ordered some "crystals" online to set in the finished version. Anyone have any thoughts on the wisdom or folly of this plan?

    Sounds good. Especially the idea of buying crystals to put inside the pendant. If you can find one that’s the correct size/shape, I think it will really finish the piece off.

    My plan is to build the necklace using a mixture of wooden dowel and 3D printed parts. I was going to make the crystal using clay, but now I really like your idea instead. :D
