What figures would you like to see released in the Retro toy line at some point from either all Star Wars movies and TV shows?

I'd like to see some coverage for the Ewok movies, that was such great content to watch as a kid, but it never had an action figure line or significant supporting merchandising. Even a single figure or a 2-pack would be great, and it would help establish demand for future assortments.

A petition has even been created by someone else:

Yeah, those unreleased characters from Droids & Ewoks would be awesome - I'm still looking for a Morag figure after all these years! Kneesaa and the rest of the gang would be awesome as well.

They haven’t made a retro Darth Maul yet? It’s hard to fathom. Here’s my top wants

11. Coruscant patrol trooper with bike
10.admiral Raddus
9. Droideka
8. Luke from Mando
7. Old Han
6. Jango
5. Battle Droid
4. Qui Gon
3. Darth Tyrannus
2. ARC Trooper either red or blue with vinyl Kama
1. Darth Maul

I think that they would sell pretty well

I'd like a chance at some of the more difficult to find vintage as well as unproduced figures from the original trilogy. Also wouldn't mind a wave from each prequel or some of the unproduced concepts like Mongo beefhead.

I thought this would be easy, planned on doing all 9 "Skywalker Saga" movies, Solo, TCW, The Bad Batch, Rebels, Book of Boba, etc...but it's BRUTAL having to narrow things down! I ran out of gas after Rogue One. These are all pipe dreams anyway, so why not two 6-figure waves per movie/source instead of just one? I went for unmade figures from the OT rather than re-releases.

I like the Darth Maul suggestion. He could be a one-off exclusive or something, which shouldn’t be too hard for them if they didn’t want to flesh out the wave.

Here is a radical wishlist:

All remaining original Kenner figures not done yet.

All original Kenner mini rigs

Land of the Jawas
Absolutely. My dream is to have a complete set of minty original 'style' retro figures. The mini-rigs would be a massive seller, and like printing money, if properly priced. Could Hasbro do these for less than $30 in their current ridiculous pricing structure?

Troop builder packs! It was a childhood dream of mine to have legions of stormies stood at attention and battle scenes but as my parents wouldn't get me more than one of any character (I managed to convince them I needed another Stormtrooper as my other one was really well played with and had trouble standing, so that was it...an army of two.) It would right an ancient wrong.

I think we can expect to see the following:
1. Andor wave
2. Mandalorian Season 3 wave
3. ESB wave 2 - maybe containing Leia (Bespin), Han (Bespin), Luke (Hoth), Snowtrooper, C-3PO (removable limbs) and R2-D2 (sensorscope)
4. ROTJ wave 2 - maybe containing Leia (Endor), Han (in carbonite), Luke (Endor), Lando (General), R2-D2 (pop-up lightsare), Emperor's Royal Guard

The INT-4 Mini-Rig (such a great design, looks like it could be in the movies and was one of my favorite toys as a kid), Imperial Dignitary, Imperial Commander (General Veers), AT-AT Driver, Snowtrooper, AT-ST Driver, Royal Guard and I'll be happy. Looks like Death Squad Commander and Biker Scout are on the way soon, along with all 6 bounty hunters, so that should save me some $$$ instead of buying vintage carded figures. I'd also be happy to buy Death Star Droid and Power Droid, but the Vintage Collection versions will do, just for the nice card art.

Of course, I'd be down for some big vehicles (Vader TIE, Dewback, Star Destroyer and the Shuttle) but I don't see that happening.

To make this simple, I'll just say my top wants are characters from the Holiday Special, Ewok movies, and never before made OT figures.

Focusing first on never before produced…

STAR WARS

Figrin Da’an
Duro
CZ droid
R1-G4
Luke (Ceremonial)
Leia (Ceremonial)

I’also love to see elder (sequel) Han, Luke, and Leia figures. Real, real bad. Luke and Leia each deserve two outfits. Han could be paired with a grey-ish Chewie. :)

But Leia in both her (Han Reunion Fatigues) and then the (Blue General Robes) from TLJ would make me very happy…

It’s been touched on already, but a vinyl case for each movie would be fantastic!
Throw in an exclusive pack-in fig with each (maybe a troop-builder) and they would sell like hotcakes!
Agree One million Percent!!!!!

I would love cases in general. Especially the rectangle ones, and not the Vader shaped one.

I'd go pretty deep into any assortment. But it's hard to wishlist when I don't know if Hasbro even has a plan. Or if that plan has been articulated to retailer buyers who really don't know Glup from Greedo.

The figures themselves are more important to me than the presentation. So if there's ever a point where Hasbro wants to save the cards for popular characters or historically significant releases, and tissue wrap another handful of themed figures in a printed box, I'd still be on board. Getting figures somehow is better than not getting them at all...

Land speeder, Taun Taun, Speeder bike.
Dewback, Wampa, E-WEB tripod canon.
Vinyl figure case, Dagobah playset, Chewbacca bandolier figure carrier.
THIS. Also, please re-make the Hoth Imperial Attack Base!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why not make the next HasLab a Retro project? Maybe something Hoth, well not maybe, IT MUST be something Hoth. Ok ok ok.. but yea all kidding aside lets get into the playsets now for Retro.

For the time being, Hasbro, you MUST make the Gammie Guard soon and HAMMER HEAD!

But... we already have so many Hoth playsets. How about a Cloud City set instead?

I don't want just a re-issue of old, but a new playset made in the original Kenner style. They showed such promise by release the Tarkin figure. They really need to continue that and fill in missing pieces from their original line.

A vintage style Cloud City playset would be pretty interesting… Especially if it were to focus on both the City — AND the Carbon Freezing Chamber….

I want the Retro Collection to focus on the original 96 figures, with a small number of new original trilogy figures sprinkled throughout. A ratio of one new figure for every six classic ones feels about right to me. My most wanted new figure is the Rebel Fleet Trooper. Would love some more cantina aliens.

I'd love for Hasbro to give us a "retro style" Bespin Freeze Chamber with Gantry and Control Room similar to the old Micro Line from the 80s just upscaled to accommodate the 3.75" figures. I know someone online made a 3D printed upscaled Micro line for the VC collection and it looks amazing.

I'd also love to see Hasbro re-release a 'Retro" Jabba the Hutt playset with a few added extra's like an archway and perhaps a retro Jabba's Prisoner Leia and Oola figures.
