The idiots should made Exar Kun, not another freaking Maul  or Fett.  ::)

I hear you on wanting an important EU character like Exar Kun.  But I think you need to try shifting your perception of figures like Darth Maul or Boba Fett in this case.  Try to regard them as the anchor pieces in the sets. 

In the SITH LEGACY, it's Darth Maul that's featured on the packaging.  He's the mainstream draw in that particular set.  While a good deal of more hardcore fans might know Darth Bane and Darth Nihilus, the mainstream people probably don't.  Also, this Maul is a good update on the POTJ figure that came out with the training droid.

And with the FETT LEGACY, again Boba Fett acts as the mainstream draw.  Plus this version gives as a super-articulated version of Boba Fett as he appeared in Empire.  Oh, and they threw in that cool removable helmet, too.  Now the flipside is what would you offer in place of Boba Fett?  That would make Jango Fett the anchor in the set, but who would you make the third Mandalorian in the set?  Canderous Ordo?  You can pick any one of a number of Mandalorians, but the OT would no longer be represented in this set.  And that's still a big selling point for some collectors.

I disagree with that Maul being put in.  He's in two Evolution sets at one time, and this version looks terrible.

There's plenty of other options to put in there instead, including an all new Emperor.

How about these instead:





Also the apprentice looks nothing like the art.

Yeah, have to agree with Chewie and others.  Maul should not be in that set.  I don't think anyone was asking for another shirtless Maul.  He's already in the re-released Sith set.  Let him be Hasbro.    I agree Exar Kun would have been a nice addition. 

I am interested in the Fett, Jedi, and the new Sith set.   I may not buy the Unleashed one though.  It's a cool set but at $20 for a character from a video game.  I just don't know.  Maybe later?  I can see why they put him in a set though.  I highly doubt all 3 carded seperately would have sold particularly well.  If you are going to pick up Sith Apprentice most likely you would want all 3.  Might as well get it over with in one release.

Here's a loose pic of the Sith version of Vader's Apprentice. From a overseas eBay seller.

Hmm I don't like the scuff on his arms.

However I do like the collection of lightsabers he has on his belt.

Cool looking figure, just don't know much about the character.

It could be just an alternative/battle damaged custome, or that picture could be just concept art and not what'll be in the game.

Anyone interested in army building the Mandolorian from the Fett set? I only want the Fetts from the set, no interest in the Mando Warrior.

With all the leather and gimp hood it looks like something from Hellraiser.

gawd, you're right....

So the Apprentice is a Cenobite!

I'll take if off your hands if you end up having one available.   :)

Conversely, if someone buys multiples of the Fett set and doesn't want the Boba, let me know!  I'd rather do that than sell off the other 2 if I buy a set.
