Star Wars: Rebels (Hasbro)

Star Wars: Rebels
2014 - 2015

It's interesting how Star Wars Rebels didn't end as an animated series until March of 2018, yet the Hasbro toy line has been defunct since 2015. Did Hasbro really have no other characters they could have produced? Because looking at the photos below there are certainly quite a few key characters missing from the lineup - Not to mention the very obvious differences in the overall look of the characters between the first and last season of the show.

What gives Hasbro? There was room to grow here.

We suppose we'll just have to file it under the unfortunate fact that Hasbro doesn't often continue multiple Star Wars lines at the same time. By 2015 / 2016 they were deeply involved with the design and production of the forthcoming Episode VII - Not to mention the Black Series was proving to be a cash cow for them.

Truth be told, it's interesting to see Hasbro even bother with 3 3/4 inch figures anymore. Many collectors have long since moved onto six inch lines as they allow for more articulation and detail. For Hasbro to continue churning out such small figures is...Well, kind of primitive in terms of the current status quo for action figures. What's worse is they have the audacity to charge upwards of $10.00 per figure.

The Inquisitor*Kanan Jarrus

Agent Kallus*C1-10P (Chopper)*Jango Fett

One of our biggest complaints with all Star Wars lines is that they don't stay confined to their story. With the line being so limited as is, it's a shame to see precious case space taken up with figures who weren't even in the series; Jango Fett, Luke Skywalker (Jedi) and other such Prequel / Trilogy characters.

Clone Trooper*Darth Vader

Luke Skywalker*Obi-Wan Kenobi

The Snowtrooper below is the last figure from wave one. From there the photos depict wave two.

Snowtrooper*TIE Fighter Pilot*AT-DP Driver

Clone Commander Gree*Plo Koon

Jedi Temple Guard*AT-AT Driver

AT-AT Driver (shown above) rounded out wave two of the figures, and the below start wave three. Wave two would unfortunately be the last series produced to actually include any figures from the Rebels series.

Luke Skywalker [X-Wing Pilot]*Lando Calrissian [Skiff Guard]*Han Solo [Bespin]

Han Solo [Bespin] was the final wave three figure, and the below were from the final fourth wave of the series.

Luke Skywalker [Endor]*Commander Bly

Han Solo [Endor]*Princess Leia [Endor]

Hasbro produced a handful of Mission Series packs - AKA multipacks. Unfortunately for fans, this would be the only option for getting Zeb, Hera and Sabine figures from the series.

Luke Sykwalker and Darth Vader

Darth Sidious and Yoda*Boba Fett and Stormtrooper

Wulffwarro and Wookie Warrior*Sabine Wren and Stormtrooper

Hasbro flushed out the series with a handful of vehicles.

Imperial Trooper Transport*The Inquisitor's TIE Advanced Prototype
The Phantom Attack Shuttle*Obi-Wan's Jedi Starfighter

Boba Fett's Slave I*AD-TP
Anakin's Jedi Starfighter

Target also had a few exclusive vehicles which included figures. Sadly these were nothing more than the regular vehicles released with figures packed in.
