What's the point in not announcing the second figure?



It's gonna be a MSE droid... I just KNOW it! :-\

Mystery figure..is it Carnor? Perhaps we should ask Mr. Pawlus himself...I'll bet he knows. I saw him in here today.

EDIT: NM, He ran right after I PM'ed him about it.

EDIT#2: He came back in here, gave me a 'corporate' reply >:(

Thanks for trying Jon.  :)

Yeah, and I'm leaning more and more towards Carnor Jax being it (rumors aside) simply because of new toolings on the sculpt they used.  If you're gonna tool up anything new that you can get some mileage out of it makes good economic sense to get some mileage out of it.  The more something they tool up is pumped out the narrower the margins are going to go... 

Since Carnor's in the same outfit essentially it would just seem logical to me that the figure be him despite the fact he's the rumored figure anyway.

Anyone else on the fence about ordering simply because we don't know what the second half of what we're buying is?

Hah, you know that didn't even cross my mind...  It'll suck if it's a plastic middle finger from Hasbro.  Or something equally offensive.

Yeah I didn't even hesitate to put my name in with a group purchase of it actually...  The Kanos figure's enough that I want the set though ultimately.  Removable helmet, cool headsculpt for it IMO too, and a nicely poseable and arguably "new" figure...  Looks cool.  If whatever it is he comes with sucks though, the price is gonna bite.  Kind of like anything else that's overpriced that I bought (Target exclusives, VOTC/VTSC, etc.).

Yeah, I am.  Plus I don't know if I really want these 2 or not.  I liked the comic book.  It was okay.  I like the Royal Guards of course.  But I don't know.  I'd rather get some more VOTC/VTSC figures and some upcoming Saga figures first. 

But I think I might be kicking myself later for not getting these.

I think that Hasbro is going to come through with this set and give us Carnor Jax. This news about a new Expanded Universe series is great news. I hope we get ALOT more.

Slightly dissapointed in the Kir Kanos. I understand it's a first attempt and Hasbro rarely gets first attempts on figs correct but... his belt is a different color than the comic and....his helmet is too big; it covers too much chest-compared to the comic pic :-\. Well I guess it 's a typical good excuse by Hasbro to reissue/retool/kitbash the figure again in the future.

Red or black? what color should the utility belt be?

While Canor Jax seems the most logical second figure could it be Sish Sadeet. kit bashing a Bossk and painting him green is not too much of a stretch or it could be the bounty hunter identity of Kir now that would be cool and I would rather have either one of these two instead of Jax. But it could be worse..it could be a 500th Vader repack.

Well, they said its not Han Solo with a new hat, so that means it could be just Han Solo without a new hat.

I'm with you Rob, I'm not a fan of paying for a product without knowing what it is.

I've tapped into some EU lore, but this isn't among them. I'm getting a little burnt out on the $10.00 plus figure scene, so I will pass on these, just like orange Jell-O Grievous sitting at Target. Maybe the second figure will be too cool for me to pass on, but for now at least it feels easy. That's 3 more TSC sandtroopers, if I can find them.  :(
