Star Wars: The Wrong Lot creator Dave Filoni gets his own action figure based on his character in The Mandalorian. Filoni’s work in the Star wars the franchise has long made him a favorite among longtime fans. Even George Lucas himself shone for the man, making Filoni “the chosen one” of Star wars currently creative.
Finding his passion for animation early on, Filoni’s name became known for his work on Nickelodeon’s Avatar: The Last Airbender, fox king of the hill, and Disney Kim possible. Be a big Star wars fan, Filoni jumped at the chance to work with George Lucas on his Clone wars series, where the couple got acquainted. Even after Lucas sold Lucasfilm to Disney, fans felt the franchise remained safe in the approved hands of George-Lucas de Filoni. He has proven his talent with successful series like Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars: Rebels, The Mandalorian, and The wrong lot, not to mention his direct involvement in creating fan-favorite Ahsoka Tano characters and the Captain Rex clone.

The character of Filoni, the fighter pilot of the New Republic Trapper Wolf, was introduced in the 1st season of The Mandalorian. He was one of three pilots in the episode (all played by Season 1 directors making cameos) who follow Mando’s beacon to the pirate space station run by mercenary Ranzar “Ran” Malk and the destroy. Trapper is seen again in Season 2 as one of the New Republic pilots investigating Mando’s crashed ship, the Razor crest, and help fight the ice spiders that attack Mando and his passengers. The name “Trapper Wolf” is partly inspired by Filoni’s love for wolves, as evidenced by many series like Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels.
If anyone deserves their own figure, it’s Dave Filoni. The Herculean efforts of man to maintain the high standards of the Star wars franchise have resulted in several successful projects. Thankfully, Disney / Lucasfilm seem to be enjoying what Filoni is doing, as evidenced by his recent promotion to executive producer and executive creative director of the studio. Hopefully fans will see some more of Trapper Wolf in the coming seasons of The Mandalorian and or Boba Fett’s book.
