If they picked the right figures, I'd actually consider picking these up... price hike and all.
If Kyle Katarn got a 12" figure though, forget it... I'm there. He's only the best EU character EVER to come down the pike... I can imagine them decking him out with the shitloads of gear he uses in the games too. Oh man... Maybe even multiple heads for the various stages of his "aging". Like NJO era with grey streaks and beard, the classic trilogy era with no grey and stubble beard, etc... Sweet.
And the gear... IM Mines, Thermal Detonator Bandoleir, Imperial Railgun with explosive projectiles, Imperial Repeater Rifle, Imperial E-11, Bryar "pistol" Sawed Off Blaster Rifle, Fusion Cutter... And his harness/PDSU, and of course a nice kick-ass Qu-Rahn Lightsaber... Oh yeah, and his headset w/IR Goggles, head lamp, etc.
Katarn could be the ultimate SW figure.
