sounds like you guys are in the same mindset regarding the final six...more Novel-based than seventies comics.

X-Wing
Corran Horn and Mirax Terrik
Iella Wessiri and Wes Janson

The only way I'll get really excited about these EU 2-packs is if they start plucking X-Wing Comic/Novel characters out.

I'd love to get some of those Rogue Squadron figures - this would be the perfect way to finally get a Hobbie or a Janson or a Tycho or any of those alien Rogue Squad pilots.

Let me second that.  The only Star Wars EU Novels I have read are the entire X-Wing Rogue Squadron and Wraith Squadron series. 

Every Human Pilot possible would be awesome, I'd buy cases of cases (if they were Super Articulated of course).

And the comics lend themselves to better colors at least than the Psychodelic Disco colors of the Marvel lines.  I'd love the Rouge Leader packs with Luke, Wedge, Tycho and Janson as well as some of the bad guys throughout the series, like a Baron Fel.

If I were in charge of Hasbro, here is what I would do.  Remeber the micro machines that were from the EU?  You open up a book and you had a couple of ships and some mini figures?  The books were similar in size to paperbacks.  I would go similar to hard backs and have 4 action figures.  Here they are:

I'm a fan of the Heir to the empire series, but I'm not sure how much I want to follow Hasbro down the EU road. Like many of you, I like to get a complete set if I get anything, but so much of the EU product is likely to come from things I am not familiar with, that I am not that interested.
I'm glad Hasbro is moving away from repack after repack, but for my money they would be better off developing some small playsets or diorama builder type toys. I want to show off what I have bought for the last 10 years, not continue packing up box after box in a closet.
I think I will copy those last two sentences for futre pasting, as I seem to be saying it more and more.

They were, but not with Delta & Omega. Who says that comics are the only figures being made? That'll suck, since there's alot of good characters who only appeared in novels.

I agree, the only novels I've read besides Shadows of the Empire is the Rogue Squadron/Wraith Squadron series. I'd love to see every human pilot in those novels show up in figure form, not to mention all the human naval officers and troopers and pirates....

Because comics are being included with the figures, so it would make sense that Hasbro's only doing figures of characters that have comics...

Include a sample of the book with the figure, or for VGs add a demo disc! :)

But as you can see on the packaging, it says Star Wars Comic Packs.
