The Force Unleashed deluxe lightsaber set has a green saber and a red saber...that could indicate that there are multiple paths for Secret Apprentice to travel.  So a light side and dark side version seem likely.

That's good news about the saber - I'd say you're right, there will probably be a light and dark side of the figure then... imagine though if they dropped a bomb like this -

I saw the Force Unleashed color-change lightsaber today at retail.  Looks like things are starting to make their way out.

That's awesome that there have been some leaks already... I've got a friend who just started as an electornics rep, and has access to the stockrooms... I'll tell him to keep an eye out.

Yeah, I am REALLY hoping for a Proxy figure. It's a neat take on 3PO. Similar but with these illuminated purple ringed holo projectors on several places on his frame.
I'm just a humble collector trying to make his way through the universe...of toy aisles.

I guess for me, there's still too much mis-information going on regarding exactly what we're getting for The Force Unleashed sub-line. I want to believe the 411 report, but it has had some things wrong in past years. I want to believe Hasbro's comment that there will not be any more Force Unleashed figures beyond Wave 2, but this whole discussion centers around a figure that isn't in Wave 2 but is clearly based on The Force Unleashed.

I understand Hasbro has to be hush-hush - it makes the buyers for WalMart and Target feel like they're working for the CIA. Also, Hasbro doesn't want their ideas to get out before they're in stores 'cause the Mattel and Playmates lines for The Force Unleashed might steal some of their ideas and make their Force Unleashed figures even better.  ::)

I dont like Morrison being used so much or 501st guys.

These figures are so-so. The worst thing about the Stormtroopers is that they are terribly dated. Their boots alone are so 1970ish its laughable.

Biggest complaint though is the lack of the old Kenner blasters, they were the best, not these dinky things they give now, WTF?!

The "dinky" things are to-scale to the figures...  Well, usually. :)

So...  Yeah, Kenner guns are just a tad (like about 5 times) too big. ;)  Not something I'd like to go back to...  Like going back to buff sculpts and things.

Well, that exact one, with the ridges on the grip, is IG-88's gun. I don't have extra's of that one, but the the non-IG-88 blasters that are the same exact size, I have a ton of.

Yeah, he's supposedly a Jedi that kinda goes off the deepend post-Order-66, and that makes him cool to me...  Plus he's smaller which I think makes him cool in design, but that's me.  I guess in FU he can use the force to put together "junk" into destructive "beast-like" things...  Sounds like a real freak.
