The Fates Of Canceled Captain Rex (Realistic), R5-X2 And A-wing Pilot

Posted by Paul | February 15, 2014 at 09:22 PM ET

Are you interested in knowing the fates of the three (3) remaining Legacy Collection [2] figures that haven't been released yet? You know what to do.

Captain Rex - confirmed for release in The Black Series line
R5-X2 - not coming for the foreseeable future and likely not at all
A-wing Pilot - not coming for the foreseeable future but likely during the approach of Episode VII

Why will we possibly see the A-wing Pilot closer to the release of Episode VII? Per Hasbro, we will see a heavy release of products that are sourced to Star Wars Episode VI: Return Of The Jedi closer to the release of Episode VII since it is the story right before it. Many toy concepts will focus on this film as a gateway to it (as we get closer of course). They will hold off on this figure until then, but keep in mind there is no guarantee we will see it.

R5-X2 is unlikely to ever come because Hasbro has been instructed to avoid the Prequel Trilogy as we move into Star Wars: Rebels. Even sadder is that Hasbro has been forbidden to release characters from the Expanded Universe. Repacks and carry-forwards are OK, but there will be no new figures made for this property.
