I yawn in their general direction

Outside of the obvious reason of cost...why aren't exclusives movie figures?  The last 2 years has been riddled with Holo/Lava/Stick a Sticker/Repaint ********

What happened to the days of Kabe/Muftak or Oola or Mace Windu etc etc  Give us Hermi, Give us Yarna, Give us ICMG give us anything other than the bullcrap they've been overcharging for in a spiffed up bubble

I will say though...the Clone 4 packs and the Astromech sets were totally kick ass, I'd love to see a Protocol Droid and another 2 Astromech sets EE :-*

I prefer they be offered on the shelves, and not as exclusives... but these days everyone's prices are jacked up. Sad.

Don't get too excited, it's just a Eeth Koth kit bash with a new head.  ;D





Yes, I'm only kidding.

But if I am going to pay $10-$15 for an exclusive and they are going to make exclusives anyway, I'd much rather prefer to have some all new stuff rather than rehashed for the 3rd time EU Crap.

Supposedly it IS Carnor Jax.  This info is coming from the admin at RS who first leaked the rumor that Kir Kanos would be an exclusive for this year and supposedly he said he'd already hinted at this in February but I guess I never saw that.

The rumor's been floating around since about November.  That's when I first heard something about this.

From  the small pic he looks cool.

I agree with OCB. I would also prefer more movie type characters but at least its closer to the movies. I kind of imagined them as highly trained ARC type Jango clones, not Joe Schmoes from accross the galaxy.
They might make good custom fodder.

Thanks for the pic QG!

If you go to SW.com/whatsnew, they show a link to the Kir Kanos / Mystery Figure 2 pack at SWS.com.



However, when you click on the link in that ad, it comes up as "This product is currently unavailable".

Guess it not EE exclusive. Its another internet exclusive like Wedge.
$20 sounds reasonable considering they charged $13 for Wedge alone.

(I love how agile and Ninja-like they make these guys appear in the books, those helmets are so obstructive and awkwardly heavy they would be dead in seconds in a "real" SW fight. Yes, I know we are talkin Sci-Fi fantasy here, just had to comment. I wore one before, its like the Batman costume you cannot turn your head unless you turn your whole body.) :P

At least they confimed the other figure is notHan with a new Hat.

Maybe they are teaming him up with the ICMG in Royal Guard armor. Now that would be sweet! :D

Well, I'm not so sure about that yet.  Like I said, SW.com's link to Kir Kanos at SWS.com doesn't actually work, so perhaps it was just intended as a preview page for EE?

Anyway, the figure looks pretty darn good.  And it comes with a comic too, that's a neat bonus.  It looks like we'll find out "officially" who the second figure is at Comic-Con.  8)

Kanos looks choice. If I can I'll pick this up.
