I just saw a trailer (TV) for a game called Republic Commando (PC & XBOX sofar) from May 2003 (oops) E3 show.....

I think these would outclass ARC troopers since they are bug hunting Geonosians in their catacombs....work for the brave not the squeemish

There have been many, many really cool characters to come out of the various Star Wars PC games, and the only ones ever to get figures were the ones from 1998. Don't hold your breath on these.

Those look kind of cool. Over time as the well of background characters dries up (assuming the line lives long enough too) maybe Hasbro will put out more EU characters in plastic. While i dont see it happening anytime soon, its still a possibility.

That does leave 2 choice.....Hasbro has the SW line thru 2018 or a Custom figure (which I suck at making)..

They would be cool to have, but I'm still disapointed on how bad the Dark Trooper turned out years back. I can see them missing big time on these too.

Info at Starwars.com site, official information....

Star Wars: Republic Commando will present a dramatic military-style action experience from the point-of-view of an elite squad member of a Republic Special Operations unit. Players will step into the role of a Commando performing precision operations deep behind enemy lines in this brutally realistic Star Wars combat experience. Some teams of Republic Commandos fighting side by side with Wookiees on Kashyyyk before the major Separatist invasion of that planet in the film happens.

Expected for release Sept 1st 2004

No mention of possible toys though, huh? He would indeed be an awesome figure. Will this game be available on Gamecube, or any mention of it being exclusively for computer? Im hoping it hits GC, i dont like playing video games on the computer.

Dude, the Dark Trooper rocked! I LOVED that game (Dark Forces) and when you throw down with that DT for the first time and get your ***** handed to you, that's one of the great thrills in all PC gaming. The DT was a great character, came from a great game, and Hasbro did a commendable job on the figure. It's the best fig out of the EU line.

....it will NOT be on Gamecube because it is solely an online title. Thats why it's limited to XBOX, PC and PS2 (hey, blame Nintendo's online policy for that!). Also, I'm excited but then again a little reserved because this game is being made by the same people who made Clone Wars The Video Game......and it wasn't that hot. If it's going to be a squad based shooter, then they need to REALLY improve off of CW (the ground levels were absolutely horrendous!). Keep in mind that if you are going to play it on PS2 you need broadband.
