Ok, so I’m a little early on this one but with the reveal of the ESB 40th Anniversary set I can’t help but look forward to the ROJ set in 3 years time.

Who do we think we’ll be seeing by the time 2023 rolls round? Here’s my 14;

1. Admiral Ackbar
2. Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight) re
3. Leia in Boushh Disguise re
4. Gamorrean Guard re
5. Lando Calrissian in Skiff Guard Disguise re
6. Biker Scout re
7. Wicket
8. Emperor Palpatine re
9. Han Solo in Trench Coat
10. Royal Guard re
11. Rebel Commando
12. AT-ST Driver
13. Bib Fortuna
14. B-Wing Pilot

The Black Series line has been a bit ROJ light in recent years so maybe some of these will get released into the regular line before 2023.

Bib Fortuna and Ackbar in his Sunday whites are two biggies for me.

I don't really want them - but who am I kidding, of course I'd buy some Ewoks.

Oola is a pipe dream, but she'd be cool.

If Hasbro actual produces Ewoks, I see either the Ewok Glider or the catapult being made for 6 inch scale. Rather have the catapult for some nice Dios!

I want Bib Fortuna more than any other and I hope we see him way before the ROTJ anniversary. Besides him, I’d love Barada, Sim Aloo (or any Imperial Diginitary), General Lando with cape, and General Madine.

If they do any Rebel Commandos, I hope they pack an alternate head. Have a regular dude and then have Rex. Since it's pretty much been retconned that the white bearded dude on Endor is Old Man Rex. I'm totally down for that.

I feel re-release and update of ol' Jabba and this time include his throne, Crum and Oola in the set. If not, at least give use Jabba, his throne and Crum.
If not Crum please by all means include Carbonite Solo.

I would hope by then they will have tapped into ROTJ more so that we can just complain about them re-packing figures on cards. I don't expect many creatures to get made which is a shame since they would make great figures. I would love some of these. I know 3/4 of them won't be made...

Luke Endor
Leia Endor
Han Endor
Admiral Ackbar
General Maxine
Moff Jerjerrod
Wicket and Logray
More Ewoks
Bib Fortuna
Nien Nunb
Weequay
Ephant Mon
Amanaman
Hermi Odle
Yak Face
Ree Yees
Squid Head
Nikto
Barada
Klaatu
B-Wing Pilot
A-Wing Pilot
Lando General
Oorimarko
Imperial Fleet Trooper
Nick Van Sant in Scout Trooper Disguise
Endor Rebel Soldier
Leia Ewok Village Dress

I cant wait until they really wring it out with a POTF 40th Anniversary line. Imperial Dignitary... that other Ewok... Collector coins so big you can sit your drink on them. Bring it on 2025!!!

I did wonder weather they’d do a POTF 40th anniversary line but can’t see it happening.

Hopefully by 2025 we’ll be seeing a few Revenge of the Sith 20th anniversary figures on 2005 style cards.

Might as well add Pote Snitkin, J' Quille, Vizam, and Shasa Tiel to the mix too of background characters!

I know you guys are super excited for all new figures, but it's gonna be mostly repaints of core characters.

Luke Jedi Knight
Darth Vader final duel
Biker Scout
Royal Guard
Emperor

Tag me in 3 years when they announce the first wave lol
(Unless more ROTJ cores get made like Endor Leia, Luke, General lando ect.)
SDCC will be a POTF coin style release.

IF there will only be repaints and no new figures, then Jabba needs to make another appearance and the Gammorean Guard as well.

I don’t think Han ever put on the uniform. The way that scenes is edited, it appears as though Han probably just put on the helmet.

Didn't Hasbro make a 3.75in figure of Han in AT-ST gear as well? Form the movie point of view, yes he just used the helmet only.

Was it ever actually confirmed that it was Han? I remember it used to be a bit of a myth amongst fans that it was him.
I just watched that a couple weeks ago. First, he tells Chewie to get down here, but then he says "Wait, I have an idea". So It sure looks and sounds like Han, but then how the heck does he get down from the AT-ST in time to be at the side of the bunker smiling, clearly not out of breath? I realize of course by the time the Stormtroopers were sent out it could of been say 10 minutes, but the way it is edited makes that seem impossible to me.

Here's what I would hope to get, if it were up to me:

1. Han w/ Trenchcoat
2. Endor Leia w/ removable poncho
3. Endor Poncho Luke
4. Wicket
5. General Lando
6. Mon Mothma
7. Admiral Ackbar
8. Weequay
9. Bib Fortuna
10. Rebel Commando

Gamestop Exclusive: Han Solo (white shirt) w/ Carbonite Block

Now, based on the number of new figures we're getting for Empire, here's what I expect we'll really get:
1. Luke w/ removable Endor Poncho (basically a re-pack of the first Jedi Luke, but with the added accessories)
2. Lando in Skiff Guard Disguise
3. R2-D2 w/ pop-up lightsaber
4. Darth Vader w/ Removable helmet
5. Han Solo in Carboite (block only)
6. Princess Leia in Boushh disguise
7. Emperor's Royal Guard
8. Admiral Ackbar
9. Wicket
10. Weequay

Gamestop Exclusive: C-3PO w/ Throne
Convention Exclusive: Bib Fortuna (just because you know they'd do this just to get people angry)

As much as a dislike Ewoks, I can see myself buying every BS6 release of them.

But, out of everything Jedi, I'd love to see a 6 inch Bib.

Yup, he's my #1 at this point. And Ackbar next.

And yes, I don't care about Ewoks, but would totally buy them all. :ROFLMAO:
