Star Wars Action Figures Source Lists

2019-05-15_2326

With the confirmation from these past two weeks that we will now be getting an additional trilogy following the end of the Skywalker Saga later this year, we have already begun daydreaming about the figure lines that will be dropping as we continue to get new content up until just about Star Wars’ 50th anniversary in 2027.

Last week Disney laid out their future dates for Star Wars motion pictures: December 16th, 2022, December 20th, 2024, and December 18th, 2026. And this week, Bob Iger confirmed they would be from the Game of Thrones writers; David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.

While we are thrilled to be getting more Star Wars films in the few years, we are a bit disappointed that an Avatar sequel will hold the blockbuster spot in ’27 when Star Wars turns the big 5-0. But nevertheless, we now are waiting patiently for Triple Force Friday (October 4th, 2019) which will see the official release of merchandise from:

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

The Mandalorian

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

With such great new content in which Hasbro will mine for great new figures and toys, we started looking back over the past 40 years of collecting and thinking about the many other past sources from which Kenner and more commonly Hasbro has tapped.

So as we like to do here at From4-LOMtoZuckuss.com (the site about all things Star Wars action figure related) we put together a quick list of sources that have directly produced/inspired Star Wars action figures over the last four decades. We have broken these sources down into media types and created two different lists for 3 3/4″ and 6″ figures. Again we consider this a work in progress as with nearing 4000 figures produced, it takes a fair amount of time to hunt down the origin of each and every figure. And as always, if you know of something we have overlooked, please let us know on our social pages or by emailing 4LOMKUSS@gmail.com!
