Why have they not made <blank> in Black Series yet?

Tue May 25, 2021 9:37 pm

I'll start with an admittedly limited appeal one and leave all the low hanging fruit.

I don't know why I don't have any of the Rebel Leadership aside from Ackbar.
Mon Mothma, General Madine, General Rieekan, General Dodonna. Prolly a few more aliens.
Bring it on.

Who else?


EDIT: Note, I am not looking to start another wishlist thread. I'm thinking more in terms of, "this line's been around a good while, how come these obvious choices haven't been knocked out?"

Would you want them, or their characters? Trapper Wolf and Baron Papanoida would actually make pretty cool figures, but I also wouldn't turn down figures of just them. Though something tells me George's neck articulation would be a little lacking. :lol:

I'm actually surprised that a company like Funko hasn't made George Lucas yet. They have a few Director Pops.

They totally screwed Bespin over in the ESB 40th representation last year.
No Lobot, Bespin Guard, Ughnauts, or Cloud Car Pilot on the vintage cardbacks? Damn shame.

They did moderately better with Hoth,, I guess. The Rebel Trooper kicks ass. But I still need 2-1B and FX-7.

It's funny because I didn't even think of their actual characters. I'd honestly prefer their normal selves in action figure form, that's just me, but Trapper Wolf on the Mando shelf is really enticing.

I would love LOVE George's Pantoran Baron in figure form. I could see that happening as a con exclusive. They did it in 3.75 scale so they need to do it in 6".

They have yet to make any Cantina Aliens besides Greedo. I find that really surprising. Especially since Greedo was part of wave 1, and I assumed was a sign of things to come. The Cantina scene is arguably one of the most famous scenes in Star Wars. It got so much attention and fanfare when the film was initially released in 1977. Figures like Hammerhead and Ponda Bobba are classic Star Wars, and an important part of the franchise.

Of all the major speaking roles, I feel like a Prequal Yoda, Watto, Nute Gunray, and Wicket are missing. As well as variations of Padme. Boss Nass, Sebulba, and Dexter Jettster might be a tier below those as well.

Who WOULDN'T want a set of Figrin Dan and the Modal Nodes?

For that matter, I want the Max Rebo band, too! Sy Snootles is optional.

The Airborne Trooper seems like such an obvious one at this point. Once they do the webbing for that, Bacara wouldn't be much of a stretch either. Barriss and Ki Adi would wrap up my PT list.

Then, yeah, get on some more Cantina and Palace creatures.
