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.
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!
Tarkin, different Endor Commanders, Y-Wing pilot, Biggs or different X-wing pilots like Wedge Antilles, not cool that all x-wing pilots is luke Rebel Navy Troopers and some rebel generals. Maybe jan dodonna and Willard.
Maybe some of admiral ackbars friends some mon calamari officers or pilots
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!
Tarkin, Wedge, mon Mothma, captain Antilles, beru / Owen. a couple more droids (like the big round crap looking robot Wars thing). Any of the cantina lot. Leia endor. A cool emperor with a proper cloak.
