The first seven action figures released in The Retro Collection were revealed in Hasbro's showroom at the 2019 Toy Fair. The Han Solo action figure featured on this page was released the following May along with Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia Organa, Chewbacca, Darth Vader, and Stormtrooper. At the same time, Hasbro released the very first classic Kenner style Grand Moff Tarkin carded action figure with a remake of the classic Kenner Escape From Death Star board game. All seven figures were released exclusively at Target stores on May 12, 2019, and saw wider distribution later in the year.

- Han Solo Action Figure
- True Black Kenner Rebel Blaster
- The Han Solo action figure on this page features both sculpted and printed identifiers on its legs to distinguish it from the original Kenner action figure.
- The Rebel Blaster was only produced in true black as an accessory packed with the classic Kenner Han Solo (In Trench Coat) action figure released in 1984 as part of the Return Of The Jedi action figure collection. The Rebel Baster included with this figure has much cleaner details than we've seen in the Kenner era accessories.
