There is no market for ST merch. It all historically bombed. All clearanced. Even the toy companies say it.
Can you link the article(s) where companies (Hasbro, Jakks, etc) stated the sequel trilogy merchandise has no market?

I’ve read comments that the merchandise was released too far ahead of the movies an consumers lost interest. I’ve read that toy sales in general were down during the same period, and the closure of Toys’r’Us hurt sales. I’ve even read that the glut or star wars merchandise from the rapid release of the sequel movies was overwhelming and demand was not allowed to build up as it had for TFA. But I have never read anything from a company holding the license to make star wars toys stating that the sequel trilogy has no market for merchandise.

Also, are people including Solo in the ST? What about the Mandalorian?
Those are all excuses from ST apologists.

Howard Chan, head of Hot Toys, recently did an interview where he said ST sales were “awful.” I don’t have the link, but magazine scans and translation is on the sideshow forums in the Star Wars section.

And here is DST president stating in very clear terms that there was no market

As far as Hasbro, they will never admit it. But come on, those excuses are weak. You can look up the financial numbers yourself and see the low sales. You can see all the clearance items. You can see that for the first time ever there was no 3.75” for a Star Wars movie because there literally was no market.

And the biggest thing, where is ANY ST merch now? Just no market.

It is why Disney is completely shifting away from it. No new comics, no new novels, no new figures, ST is a black hole.
You can walk into a Walmart and still see a Constable Zuvio. Needless to say, that figure wasn't popular and even the paid reviews of it stand out as shills in hindsight.

The beauty of where Black Series is at now is that they're able to really scratch every itch a collector might have. Gaming Greats can flesh out Jedi: Fallen Order while dipping into the rich history of KOTOR, Force Unleashed, etc. So I'd definitely like to see a Starkiller somewhere in the future to add to my non-Canon display.

PT-wise I'd like to see a Palpatine (Dew It Face is a must) like the old ROTS figure with swappable parts from his duel with Windu. Any other Jedi and Clones we get are just a nice bonus at this point.

OT-wise the Archive line offers a nice opportunity to update some of the original releases that don't warrant a whole new sculpt/body/etc. So here's hoping we get a good Han soon.

Mando is pretty well represented so far and has a nice amount of timeline to bridge so I'm eager to see it continue to be fleshed out.

ST-wise TOS Poe and Finn as others have mentioned. I'd also like to get photo real for everyone of the OT cast in some form. I know Mark is a hard likeness to get in general but Ahch-To Luke is ROUGH. There was so much potential to the ST that I'll always be a little disappointed we didn't get more from it, but there's still plenty of opportunity to revisit some of the characters that either never were released at the time or could use a refresh.

I was wondering what to do with my old Bespin Luke after I get the new one. Then it dawned on me they made Jaina but not Jacen. And one of his iconic looks before he goes all evil is a brown colored version of Bespin Luke's fatigues. Even the 3 3/4 just repainted it with a new belt and head for Jacen. So I'm probably gonna try to make a 6 inch Jason out of it. Found a head on ebay I like but not sure I wanna shell out $20 for it right now, especially since I'd have tell paint it myself. And it may be too big.

But that begs the question, where the **** is the Hasbro version? Jainas been out since before TRU died. That's where I got mine. There are a bunch of customs online, using different heads. Most of which look like they could be him, but all of them are too big and make him look like a bobble head. But he is literally a new head and Lightsaber hilt away from being done proper. And his *twin* sister is kinda lonely.

Crait Luke is a must for the ST. Especially if the articulation allows him to dust off his shoulder.

Crait Luke's absence is vexing.

This is one I thought for sure would show up in both the Black Series and VC. It just seems like a no-brainer.

Especially some people may buy multiples for their Imperial displays.

This thread is not even 2 months old and we are already getting a Trapper Wolf / Filoni. Dreams do come true. :o :o :o :o
