May The 4th
, Star Wars day is almost upon us, which means we can likely expect some new Star Wars product reveals to be made by Hasbro
in the coming days. May The 4th also happens to be the day that the final episode for the final season of The Clone Wars
animated series airs on Disney+
With that I have devised a Top 10
list of characters featured in the final season, that I hope Hasbro
has plans for making 6” Black Series
figures of in the near future. If you haven’t been watching the final season of Clone Wars, I highly recommend that you do, but also I want to warn you that this article does contain SPOILERS from the show. So read on at your own risk.
This is the leader of the Pyke Syndicate at the time of the Clone Wars. You may recall this organization from the Solo: A Star Wars Story movie. This one comes in at number 10, more for the character design than the character itself. The story-arc which featured this character in my opinion was the weakest of the season, but I really think this character has an interesting look that would translate nicely into an action figure. I could have just as easily thrown in one of the many different versions of Mandalorian armors we see in this season, but I have two specific Mandalorian characters already on the list, so I wanted to mix things up a bit.
09. Darth Maul
Maul is back again and badder than ever. While we still have two more episodes in the season, I really like where they are taking things with Maul, and how they are connecting things with the movies. We’ve already gotten a Phantom Menace version of Maul in the Black Series line, but he does have a different look here, so I think it’s worth giving him an updated figure.
08. Ahsoka Tano Clone Trooper
Ahsoka, like Maul also returns for this final season. I don’t have Ahsoka on the list, because we already have the recent figure based on her appearance in the Rebels animated series. In this latest story arc, the 501st and Captain Rex pay tribute to Ahsoka by painting her markings on their armor. While Rex soon after removed the markings, the other clones keep them on for the battle at Mandalore. I would like to see Hasbro do one of these Clone Troopers with the Ahsoka markings, that you can then army build.
07. Admiral Trench
This is one of the leaders of the Battle Droid forces, and he has a really cool look that I think would translate well into an action figure. Who wouldn’t want a big giant looking spider-dude commanding their robot army?
06. Bo-Katan Kryze
This is a character who has made a significant impact on the Star Wars Universe. She first appeared in earlier seasons of The Clone Wars, as well as returning for this final season. She has also appeared in The Rebels series, and frankly I wouldn’t be surprised if she doesn’t end up playing some type of role in The Mandalorian live-action series as well. After all, she was the last known person to wield the Darksaber before it turned up in the season 1 finale of The Mandalorian. This character is also voiced by Battle Star Galactica Alum Katee Sackhoff, who I could easily see making the transition to a live-action. Kryze is definitely deserving of the action figure treatment.
05 - 02 - The Bad Batch Clone Troopers (Hunter, Crosshair, Wrecker and Tech)
This unique group of Clones kicked off the final season with a multi-part story arc, and became instant fan favorites. The group consists of four different looking and acting troopers with the desire to kick ass. Tech was probably my favorite of the four, followed by Wrecker. I hope Hasbro ends up doing all four, and I would even be open to releasing them as a 4-pack.
01 - Gar Saxon
The number one figure I want to see made from the final season of Clone Wars is Gar Saxon. Like Kryze, he has history that expands beyond the confines of this one series. Beyond that, I also love the look of his armor. The color scheme and helmet pay tribute to his leader Darth Maul, and I love how the yellow glow on his visor stands out. Even his jetpack looks bad ass. Hasbro, in my opinion would be crazy if they don’t make this guy into an action figure.
So there is my list. Lets see if Hasbro
announces any of these over the next few days as we celebrate May The 4th Star Wars Day
