The second season of the Disney+
series The Mandalorian
has come to an end, and with that the potential for new and cool Black Series/Vintage Collection action figures has increased significantly. Last year you may recall I did an article titled The Top 10 The Mandalorian 6" Black Series Figures Hasbro Needs To Make After Season 1
. Since then Hasbro has announced they are doing about half the figures from that list which I guess isn't too bad, but with so much potential for even more figures after season 2, I would say they definitely need to pick up the pace a bit.
The good news is Hasbro has a full year until Season 3 of The Mandalorian premieres next December and my guess is that with the popularity for the show rising exponentially, we will see an even greater push of Mandalorian product in 2021. The bad news, for our wallets anyway, is that The Mandalorian isn't the only Star Wars series on the horizon which means even more potential for new product.
So before we get to season 2, let's do a quick recap of characters from my season 1
list last year that have yet to get the figure treatment. Ran Malk, The Client, Xi'an, Mayfield,
. I also forgot to list the droid Q9-0
who actually makes a brief appearance in season 2.
Now on to season 2
We know Hasbro is giving us Bo Katan
, so no need to include her here.
So we will start with Din Djarin with his pure Beskar spear
that he got in Chapter 13
titled "The Jedi"
. Honestly this isn't a figure I am dying for, but knowing the main character will likely continue to get new releases, it seems like a no-brainer. They could also include a new version of Grogu
in a satchel that Mando can carry as we saw in Chapter 13. Hasbro
already did a similar Grogu that they included with the 6" Mandalroan Speeder Bike
Din Djarin With Beskar Spear
also provided potential for a number of other figures that Hasbro
could do. Another no-brainer is Ashoka Tano
who made the jump from animation to live-action and is now played by actress Rosario Dawson
. Even if she wasn't getting her own series, you know a new figure of her would be coming.
Ashoka Tano Chapter 13
The other two characters that debuted in Chapter 13
that I wouldn't mind seeing figures of at some point are Magistrate Morgan Elsbeth
played by actress Diana Lee Inosanto
and Lieutenant Lang
played by actor Michael Biehn
. I would classify these two as minor characters, so there are definitely others I want to see first.
Magistrate Morgan Elsbeth Chapter 13
Lieutenant Lang Chapter 13
While on the subject of minor characters
, here are a few others from season 2 ones I wouldn't mind seeing eventually.
Gangster Gor Koresh (John Leguizamo) Chapter 9
Mechanic Peli Motto (Amy Sedaris) returns in Chapter 9
Frog Lady With Egg Canister Chapter 10
Imperial Captain (Titus Welliver) Chapter 11
Republic Captain Carson Teva (Paul Sun-Hyung Lee ) returns in Chapter 10 and 12
While a minor character, I definitely want to see a figure of Republic X-Wing Pilot Trapper Wolf
who is played by Dave Filoni
. It's less about the character and more that I think Filoni
is deserving of an action figure. I also suspect we will be seeing both Wolf
Republic X-Wing Pilot Trapper Wolf (Dave Filoni) returns in Chapter 10
One other character I guess you would classify as being fairly minor since they only had a few seconds of screen time is Bib Fortuna
, who we last saw in Return of the Jedi
. A fat Fortuna, I think, is a must have figure.
Bib Fortuna (Matthew Wood) returns in Chapter 16
There are several characters from season 2 seemingly who started off as minor ones but have taken on greater importance such as Dr. Pershing
. He was another character I didn't even mention last year, but think he definitely needs a figure made now.
Dr. Pershing (Omid Abtahi) returns in Chapter 12 and 16
The accountant Mythrol
who first appeared in Chapter 1, and then returned in Chapter 12 is another one I think due for a figure.
Mythrol (Horatio Sanz) returns in Chapter 12
who returned in Chapter 15
. I don't doubt we will see a Mayfield
figure. The bigger question is what version will it be based on, the season one outfit or one of the three outfits he had on in Chapter 15
: the prisoner outfit, the Imperial Transport
outfit, or the black outfit he had on at the end. I have little doubt that we will be seeing Mayfield
again, and suspect he will go from being a minor character to a major one.
Mayfield (Bill Burr) returns in Chapter 15
wearing the Imperial Transport armor
is another possible figure I think we could see.
One other new character I think many would like to see in figure form is Cobb Vanth in the Boba Fett
armor from Chapter 9
. I wouldn't be surprised if we end up seeing Vanth
again, though he likely won't be wearing Mando armor. If we get a figure I would want it with the armor.
Cobb Vanth (Timothy Olyphant) Chapter 9
Speaking of Boba Fett
, this is another one I have little doubt we will be getting a new figure of in the near future. The bigger question is which version if not all of them?
Non-Armor Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison) Chapter 9 and 14
Banged Up Armor Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison) Chapter 14
Cleaned Up Armor Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison) Chapter 15 and 16
I am sure we will see in figure form soon is Katan's right-hand lady Koska Reeves
played by WWE superstar Sasha Banks
Koska Reeves (Sasha Banks) Chapter 11 and 16
Speaking of right-hand ladies, another must have figure is Boba Fett's new partner Fennec Shand
played by Agents Of SHIELD star Ming-Na Wen
. I am sure we will be seeing Shand
in the new Boba Fett series
, and she is rumored to be appearing in the upcoming Bad Batch
animated series. Not only that but she wears a cool outfit, so I have little doubt we will be seeing her in figure form soon.
Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen) returns in Chapter 14, 15 and 16
Speaking of cool-looking characters, we can't forget the new robotic Dark Troopers
. If or when Hasbro
gets around to doing these guys, my guess is they will be offered as bigger deluxe
Dark Trooper Chapter 12, 14 and 16
Last but not least, we can't forget the biggest surprise of the season, Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker
. My guess is Hasbro will just make some slight modifications to their recent Return of the Jedi Black Series Luke
, but I have little doubt we will be seeing Luke from The Mandalorian
series in figure form.
Luke Skywalker Chapter 16
Finally and just for fun, here are some vehicles I wouldn't mind seeing for the Vintage Collection
seems obvious since Hasbro
could just make some slight paint deco changes to their recent Empire Strikes Back
one. The Mandalor Gauntlet
ship which originally appeared in the Clone Wars
animated shows and was seen briefly in Chapter 16
, when Mando
are looking for Bo Katan. This is one I think would be cool to see. They could even repaint it in Darth Maul colors from the Rebels and Clone Wars animated shows. I have a feeling we will be seeing this ship more in season 3 of The Mandalorian
Mandalor Guantlet Ship
So that's it for now. Let us know in the COMMENTS SECTION
if there any other figures from season 2 you want to see Hasbro make?
