According to Yakface and Jedi Insider we maybe seeing a Admiral Ackbar (ROTJ) in the near future as part of the 6” line.

Any thoughts on seeing this?

It was a matter of time before we got a ROTJ Ackbar. Instant pickup for me.

Oh abso-lutely. Funny, I was just perusing TFA Ackbars the other day thinking about getting one again. Guess I'll hold off for now.

Another great character with wasted potential and opportunity in the ST. gladly pick this version up when it arrives!

Strong agree on Nien Nunb. Dude is a hero who has a prominent supporting role in ROTJ and continued cameo appearances across the sequel trilogy. Seems like a no-brainer. With a Mon Calamari coming in this single-boxed Ackbar and a Duros coming with Cad Bane, let's add a Sullustian to the alien mix with Nien!

(And to end another message with a plea for an archive figure: they can also hook some Rodian fans up by re-releasing Greedo in a future wave.)

This would make it my third Black Series figure (after the Sandtrooper and Gamorrean giard).

Still hoping for an ewok, Momaw Nadon and Luke on a tauntaun. It's been a long wait for Ackbar. I remember being at my old job (which I finished in 2013) composing my wishlist of six (seven including the tauntaun) from the Black Series.

This was my number 1 want from the 6" want list thread; I have Wedge posed in my ROTJ group representing the DS2 fleet battle, but Ackbar is the more desired for that scene!

I definitely want Ackbar. I hope they give him that baton thing from the original 3 3/4 line.

His vest looks kinda bulky. A little quality customizing time will fix that. Deco and figure otherwise look fantastic. I'm excited he's coming.

They gave him the Dooku knees.

Will still surely buy, my POTF Ackbar needs a dad.

I don't think this figure looks very good at all. The vest looks way too big, and forces his head upward. I'll probably get it, because I love the character and this is the only way I will ever get one, but I feel let down.

Hang in there, let’s see what he looks like in hand, a little tweak here and there sometimes can make the figure look great.

It seems like the vest probably just needs to be tugged down a bit. These photographers are not always the best at futzing the figures.

Yeah, if you look at the shoulders and the neck the vest is clearly just floating too high. Tug it down a smidge and I’m sure the figure is pretty close to perfect. Only question is whether or not they improved the neck joint from the TLJ Ackbar.
