Fancy Luke Skywalker’s Yavin Medal?

by Hazel Chua

Star Wars movie buffs will recognize this jacket without need for any introduction or background info.

I personally only saw the Revenge of the Sith, the third episode in the Star Wars series, so seeing this fine-looking jacket motivated me to dig a little deeper into the scene where the Yavin medal made its appearance.

In case you didn’t know, the Yavin medal is a Medal of Bravery bestowed only on the cream of the crop by the Alliance to Restore the Republic.

Luke Skywalker Jacket and Yavin Medal

The Yavin medal was presented to Han Solo and Luke Skywalker at the end of Episode IV after destroying the Death Star. Now you too, can walk around proudly with in a spankin’ new jacket with your very own Medal of Bravery hanging on your neck for a not-so-meager sum of $120.10 (USD). It’s originally priced at $275 on Amazon, which just goes to show that even bravery has its discounts.

In case you don’t remember what it should look like, here’s the original scene from a 1977 clip of Star Wars: Episode IV:

    I take full responsibility for “Hans” solo, and I’ve seen all 6 of the movies multiple times (although Episodes I and VI should have never been made, IMHO).

    I’m the Editor, and just missed this silly typo. Fixed.
