Well, according to the Q&A at Yakface, we will get galactic marine figures in early '07.

I know, that's awesome news.  Looks like I can quit trying to customize those finally and get a squad of 4-6 of them.

I'm officially psyched. But honestly, I never really urged Hasbro to make these. I thought "Meh, they're okay". But now seeing that there is proof, I'm ecstatic! :D

Well, according to the Q&A at Yakface, we will get galactic marine basic figures in early '07.
WOO HOO!

I didn't spot the word "basic" in there though...

I hope it's part of a battlepack, so I can pick up 3 or 4 at a time. That's make everyone's job a little easier!!!

I'm gonna just hope for the best...  optomism and all that.  Super articulated in the basic line with both blaster styles. :)  No half-assing, no repainting, no part swapping, no kit bashing, no battlepacking (the likelihood of a new figure is slim), etc...

And I just hope they're REALLY abundant too of course...  Short scene, but they had one of the most "realistic" looking battle sequences I thought...  And intriguing.  I'd really hope Hasbro knocked this one out of the park and didn't skimp on it.  He requires the best any army builder can get.

I love the optimism Jesse.   :)

Qui George, some sort of Battle Pack would rule.  I'd personally like to see the following -

Galactic Marine x 2
ROTS Battle Droid x 2
Spider Droid (or whatever those tall funky looking droids are)

How 'bout a BP kinda like Mace Windu's squadron?

"Ki-Adi's Squad"

RotS Ki-Adi
Commander Bacara (RotS)
Galactic Marine x3 (x2? This is Hasbro, they would probably pack in a Clone Pilot or something)

That does sound like a good idea since practically everyone buys at least 3 anyway.  I like the idea of battle packs like Mace's little squad.

Sounds like a good formula.  I could see it called something like "Ambush on Mygeeto" or "Treachery on Mygeeto"

If it is a Battlepack, this is what the perfect combination would be:

3x Galactic Marine w/ Heavy DC-15 And DC-15 Rifle Each
2x ROTS Battle Droid w/ Battle Droid Blaster

This is what Hasbro will give us:

2x E1 Ki-Adi-Mundi w/ Lightsaber
2x POTF2 Lobots
1x Galactic Marine w/ E-11

Watch it be a repaint of the '06 saga Snowtrooper. :P

...Which wasn't too bad sculpt-wise and paint-wise, but was sorely lacking on articulation.
