Luke Skywalker owned a T-16 skyhopper on his home planet of Tatooine.



Luke's T-16 Skyhopper in Beggar's Canyon

Skywalker often took joyrides in his skyhopper where he would use womp rats as target practice[7] with his friend Windom Marstrap or race through Beggar's Canyon with his friend, Biggs Darklighter. After an incident where Skywalker "threaded the needle" during a dangerous, high-speed run through Beggar's Canyon, the T-16 ended up severely damaged. Luke was forced to leave his skyhopper at home while it was undergoing repairs. It was docked in the Lars Homestead garage when Skywalker's uncle purchased the droids C-3PO and R2-D2.

Behind the scenesEdit

Due to budget limitations, a full size T-16 skyhopper was never completed for Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. However, a partially-constructed skyhopper was made, and can be seen in the background as Luke is cleaning C-3PO and R2-D2 in the Lars garage shortly after the droids were purchased.[6]
