Yes it's that time again when the EU thread comes into play but I have a thought that might make it easier for everyone to except it and be happy all at the same time.
"MAKE THE EXPANDED UNIVERSE FIGURES AN EXCLUSIVE"
Now I'm not talking about having Walmart, Target, or TRU having the sole rights to these figures, I talking about having someone like StarWars.com or Hasbrotoyshop.com have them as their exclusives. This way, collectrs can have access to these figures, their not clogging up the shelves ****ing other off that there are no figures that they like on the pegs, and us EU fans can have a line that is made for us. See the possibility for happiness by all.
Now as far as ideas for the line: each wave will be themed to include either characters from one of the games or various books, as well as 1 to 2 ships/vehicles. Sources that could be tapped might include the popular EU thoughts: Crimsion Empire, Dark Forces, Republic Commando, The Old Republic Series of games, The New Jedi Order, Dark Empire Series, maybe even some of the Clone Wars novels as well as concepts from the cartoon series.
Now here would be my breakdown:
Schimitar Assualt Bomber
Dark Forces 1&2
Boc the Crude
Yun the Dark Youth
Gorc and Pic two pack
The Moldy Crow
Dark Empire 1&2 plus Empire's End
Lord Luke Skywalker
Older Han Solo
New Jedi Order
Yuzzan Vong (Various)
Jaina Solo (X-Wing Pilot)
Jaina Solo (Jedi)
Jacen Solo (Jedi)
Anakin Solo (Jedi)
Mara Jade Skywalker
Black Deco Millenium Falcon
Clone Wars (this can be both animated versions as well as regular)
Arc Trooper (New and Improved)
New Various Clones (As seen in cartoon series)
All new Anakin Skywalker in combat gear
All New Obi Wan Kenobi in combat gear
Various Jedi see in the series and mentioned in the books
Qui Lon Vos
Clone StarFighter from the first cartoon
Assaj Ventros Starfighter
Now I know this thread will get alot of grief from the EU haters but hey if for nothing else perhaps Hasbro will read these threads and make this a reality. Plus like I mentioned earlier, these can be exclusives to the above websites that were mentioned and not pegwarming the local TRU.
