The Mandalorian line of Kenner’s Retro Collection is getting close to covering all the significant name figures. However, there are a few names we’ve noticed that have been missing so far. Then we spotted the next wave over at Entertainment Earth today, and it is full of fan favorites.
Ahsoka Tano, fresh paint Boba Fett, and Bo-Katan are now officially part of the Retro Collection. Sporting a look that’s straight out of 1978, the stars of The Mandalorian are represented in a 3.75″ scale with simplistic designs and five points of articulation.
Each figure is priced at $11.99. The whole set can be picked up for $89.99 at Entertainment Earth. This wave won’t be shipping until March 2022.
This wave includes the following figures:
- Ahsoka Tano
- Boba Fett
- The Armorer
- Mando (Beskar Armor)
- Imperial Death Trooper
I have to say that the retro Ahsoka doesn’t look much like Rosario Dawson. But, then again, if you’re an ’80s kid like me, then you’re used to your Kenner action figures looking nothing like the actors. Heck, we even made a whole list of worst-looking Kenner Star Wars Figures.
With the Retro Collection going for a specific price point, would it be a good idea for Kenner/Hasbro to start bringing older ships and playsets out of the vault? For example, the droid factory could be rethemed with a few things. The same can be said for Jabba’s throne and the Hoth ice cave playsets. A few new stickers and some new paint could transform them into Mando-centric items.
Since most of the main cast has been covered, does this mean the next wave will have Luke and R2-D2? What do you think? Please leave us your thoughts in the comments section.
