Far left figure looks like a redeco of something from the Delta Squadron - Scorch's youngest brother.

Far right looks to be a clone/sandtrooper of sorts.  Tough to call, but armored, probably imperial.

Second from right appears to be a bald, female officer, also probably imperial. 

Second from left is a desert sniper or something like that - long rifle, looks to be a wrapped head.  Something Tatooine-ish. 

Third from left is a sandstorm or Hoth version of something (leaning more to the former), Han or Luke, whatever isn't released yet.  That would lend credence to the second figure as a sandtrooper of sorts. 

Third from right is a black Bespin security guard. 

They'll call it the Fan's Choice Hodge-Podge.

My guess is six more figures based around The Force Unleashed video game.

I hope it is something cool. I would think they would want something revolving around the Clone Wars not Force Unleashed.

Yeah, I'll most likely pass on this, whatever it is. Would it have killed them to at least release a small tidbit of info about what we could be getting?

I'm seeing a lightsaber in the hand of the 3rd from left woman rather than a sniper rifle in the second from left's hand.  I do love the idea of a Bespin Guard though, because that sure does look like it could be that type of hat!

The body is wearing armor of some type and I think the far right figure is an Evo Trooper silhouette.

IIRC, in the past EE has used silhouettes of older figures that were unrelated to the multipacks in their advertisements.  It seemed like they were trying to throw people off the scent.  This might be the case here, too. 

I'm sure Adam Pawlus will turn up sooner or later to say something about this.

In any case, the site that posted it seems pretty cool... the message boards are definitely worth a peek.

Yeah I don't think the silhouettes mean much for speculation.

I dunno, at this point not much is entertaining me with Star Wars.  These had better be nifty to get my dough I think.  I'm already thinking I'm gonna pass on things like the Mygeeto battlepack and such.  I was planning on getting those, but now I look around and figure, "why?", to myself.  I made an SA Bacarra , and I guess maybe time's catching up with me on this hobby.

Love what they do with new stuff, but a lot of the repainting they get to disappoints.

Last year's EE exclusive was cool to me for the most part, but there were little things that sucked to it too, like the lacking articulation on the arms of 2 of the characters, the sort of silly black ARC and bantha skull Clones (they're ok, but sorta meh too, at the same time).

I dunno...  The droids were more interesting I suppose, but we're getting lots of droids this year too, so I'm just not cartwheeling on the announcement of another set.  At least it's just one set this time though.

I'm guessing its either a CW or TFU related pack.  Makes more sense to build excitement over those.  I'll probably pick up two of whatever is because I'm an addict...unless they are clone wars animated figures.  I'm still trying to not buy those, so if these are of the same ilk, I may be able to save $80.

Now that's bold, selling 6 figures without any clue as to who they are, what they look like or where they come from. What's that say about us who buys them sight unseen?

Not that these silo's mean much because we should all remember the last one had the Cantina Han as a silo.  But none the less it's kinda fun to play guess the figure.  That being said starting from left to right:

Repub Comm
unknown-but looks like a hood might be Nilius, spelling?
Comic Bultar Swann-check the wing blown hair
probably Pilot Biggs/somebody using the Dutch body.  check the hose on the right side and they all came with the "Rebel" blaster
stormie minus helmet, the little square dealy thing on the right hip is a give away.
and of course the Evo trooper, backpack and shoulder armor gives him away.

You mean like the first McQuarrie Stormtrooper lightsaber?  Yeah, I can see that.

Well, I was thinking a flare silhouette more like this (though perhaps turned slightly):


Than like this (which seems too full to be that EE pic):


But like others have mentioned, it may be a moot point if they've been known to use old existing photos!
