I just don't know if I'm excited enough about Bultar Swan to spend $15-20 to get her?  I do not even know what that character is packaged with her?  I might go for the Tusken Raider Jedi depending on how it looks.  The tatooed Anakin just plain makes me laugh but I don't know the story there.  So, maybe it's kickass?

$15 to $20?  The comic 2-packs cost $10.99 each at Toys R Us, and with that price in mind you can probably get them cheaper at both Target and WalMart.

Two more were officially announced on last weeks force cast:

Bultar Swan & Koffi Arana and

A'Sharad Hett & "dark" Anakin

Okay, I know Hett is that Tusken Raider Jedi/Sith, but does anyone want to explain who the other two are?

A'Sharad Hett is a Tusken Raider Jedi.  He isn't a Sith.

Bultar Swan and Koffi Arana are both Jedi who are in the Dark Horse one-off, PURGE.  It's the story of a group of Jedi who gather on Kessel after Order 66.  They meet to determine whether to fight or go into hiding.  Vader ambushes them at the meeting, taking out most of the Jedi and leaving a couple for the 501st to kill off.  Bultar Swan had a small ammount of screen time in Attack Of The Clones and has a Databank entry here.  This is what she looks like in the movie, but in the comic she wears armor.

I'm happily passing on all the sets...  I'd take a Tarkin if I was offered one loose but I wont' buy a set for it.  If it's not a realistic likeness I'm not interested anymore...  The animated CW figures were cute, but I passed because I wanted the non-animated, and these fall into a similar category for me.  I'm happy to save the $$$ instead of picking these up.

NOw, the new figures coming in some sets...  Those I'm looking forward to.  Even if some of the comics they're from suck, I am still interested.  The Crimson Empire set was really well made so I'm hoping the figures in the other "new" comics are of similar quality.

I agree.  I've passed on the Comic Packs so far too.  I think they have been horrible.  Since I open everything, and go for realism in my collection, they just don't interest me.  I'm hoping the future sets are a good quality and by the Darkhorse style I am thinking most of them will be.

Darryl Depriest (Hasbro's Star Wars brand manager) confirmed Bultar Swan in an interview on The Force.net's Forcecast.  As for Koffi Arana, this is what he looks like:

Bultar is confirmed.  It's her costume that is rumor.  What we don't know is wether she's gonna be in her AOTC Jedi outfit, or in the comic costume?
