Star Wars figures that never got made

Postby Gaz46&2 » Wed Apr 05, 2017 12:24 pm

Which characters out of the original trilogy should have got a figure but didn't?

I can't help but think that not making Rebel Fleet troopers into action figures was a big mistake. Along with Sandtroopers, Y-wing pilots and Grand Moff Tarkin. Instead, we got a lot of silly tertiary characters like Snaggletooth and that awful gonk droid.

Back the fuck up with that shit! Don't diss the Power Droid :x

Nah totally agree, Tarkin and Rebel Trooper should have been in the last 17 instead of Warok and his fluffy bollocks mates :P

I have no idea what they were thinking making the imperial dignitary or Anakin over the fleet trooper. Which one to make, a figure most kids won't want, or a figure most kids will want multiples of? Even I could have worked that one out!

I'm all for the spy with the trunk too.

As someone with a soft spot for the robots, another R2 unit would have been welcome like the ROTJ era black Imperial one, or the white Rebel one from the start of SW. Unless they were using the same old R2 sculpt with a different sticker, that is!

Removable helmet Darth Vader would have had more playability than Anakin.

Ewoks. Obviously. We just didn't get enough of them!! I mean who could ever have enough of the useless, furry lumps of shite that had all the playability of a turd!?

They should have made every Ewok who was on screen for even a fraction of a second........ohh wait, they did. :roll:
