The RoTJ wave is more then likely next year, if i were Hasbro I'd just release another wave of ANH's first 21 after the RoTJ/Mando waves and then the next year hit more Empire and the next year more Rotj/Last 17/Ewoks-Droids. This way every year there's a wave of figures from different vintage media in the retro line while being able to drop in hot properties (like Mandalorian is currently) for boosted sales. This would give the retro line longevity beyond the handful of figures of each OT movie per year we've gotten so far.There is likely a ROTJ wave still waiting in the wings, Mando is simply popular, so Hasbro is of course going to exploit that with products in every line. Who knows if they'll cover the PT, ST, and cartoons - I agree with what you're saying, nothing outside of the OT, Droids, & Ewoks had a vintage Kenner line, so other new media doesn't have retro nostalgia. That being said, Hasbro is doing what Funko & Super7 have been doing for years and creating a manufactured nostalgia of sorts by making these figures.
