Hasbro Star Wars Retro Collection is a product line that primarily consists of 3 3/4 inch action figures. The nostalgic design and detailing of the figures, as well as the packaging, take inspiration from the vintage Kenner Star Wars toys from 1970s and 1980s. Retro Collection figures even feature classic Kenner branding (Hasbro purchased Kenner in 1991) and a weathered appearance to the card stock. In addition to action figures, the Star Wars Retro Collection also includes a few retro board games.
Hasbro launched the first wave of Retro Collection figures in 2019. The company continues to release new figures each year. As of 2023, the line is still in production and is not cancelled. Although the product line targets nostalgic adult collectors, Retro Collection figures are suitable for individuals ages 4 and up.
A typical wave of figures in the toy line centers around characters from a particular Star Wars film or television series. So far, the waves have centered around the following films and series’: A New Hope, Empire Strikes Back, The Mandalorian Series, Obi-Wan Kenobi Series, Return of the Jedi, and The Book of Boba Fett Series. Individual figures include retro-style accessories like cloth cloaks, telescoping lightsabers, or solid-color lightsabers.
Hasbro make similar vintage-style figures across other franchise as well including Marvel Retro and Indiana Jones Retro Collection.
