So I've been trying to figure out what's next for the Comic 2-packs. I've liked much of the offerings from this series so far.
However, the next group will not see me buying any, unfortunately.
Luke Skywalker as Lt. Jundland
Lt. Shan as Imperial Officer
Mouse (Duro in Stormtrooper Disguise)
Basso (Stormtrooper Disguise)
Star Wars Tales
Republic Commando (Clone)
Super Battle Droid
I was never a fan of the Empire series (nor Rebellion for that matter), and Star Wars Tales was not my favorite format either.
What else are we getting? What has been confirmed? What's strongly rumored?
I thought from
were strongly rumored. They are Imperial Knights - think of them as Force-trained Royal Guards with lightsabers.
I've heard suggestions that
Heir to the Empire
is on the way. I don't know who he's rumored to be packed with, but a resculpt of Grand Admiral Thrawn was in the pipeline by some accounts.
Do you think the Comic 2-packs are doing well for Hasbro and they will invest more in new molds for the figures? They have had some very nice offerings in this collection thus far.
Oh, btw - Dark Horse has 4 titles you'd think they'd be promoting: Legacy, Rebellion, KOTOR, and Dark Times. The last is the only one with no signs of figures. K'Kruhk could be done for Dark Times though. Meanwhile, Rebellion and Empire (which is getting done) are nearly overlapping, so that makes little difference. Hasbro has meanwhile stated that with the 2 carded figures and Mandalore in the Evolutions set, they're done with KOTOR for the short term (2008).
