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!

Its actually a silhouette of the Comic Pack Bultar Swan:

You're right!  Good eye!  Here's a pic where you can see the hair and thigh silhouette details:


Edit: looking at the pic again, I'm fairly sure the rightmost figure is an EVO trooper, shown here, and the second from right could be Basso.

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.

Whatever they are, I'm not buying them. I've been boycotting Entertainment Earth ever since they've moved their warehouse away from Los Angeles. I've also found their customer service has gone downhill over the past couple of years.

Just curious, is there any reason all of you are trying to guess the pictured figures? It's been proven a couple of times already that the silhouettes EE posts have nothing to do with the final product. Might as well save yourselves some time.

Sorry if I come off as an ass.

I said the same thing too.  I guess it's just something to do.

I think the second one from the right (in the foreground) might be Basso in Stormtrooper gear.

Yeah, its to pass time, but it also serves a purpose to identify the figures to know what we're not getting.  :P

You didn't, as a matter of fact, you nailed it.  There's truth to be found in the shadows, but any actual truth in the shadows in that picture will be revealed during Comic-Con.  Blah blah blah "stay tuned"  blah.  (Sorry.)

...but I will say it's not a KOTOR set.  Or a McQuarrie set.  If you liked our previous sets, you'll probably like this one.

Is it a "themed" set like the last one?  The Droids are only themed in that they're all droids, but otherwise they were tied by nothing (well, for the most part).  But the last set was obviously Clones with Clone training Mandalorian Instructors.

I dug the themed thing for the last set...  Is it more like that then, in that there's a backstory tying everyone in the set together?

A bunch of the same thing is still more or less a theme, they're all creations manufactured by the in-universe company Industrial Automaton.  The other sets also had themes-- we did a box of Clone Troopers, a couple of Holiday Jawas, and a mix of Mandalorians to train a Clone army.

I'd say there's a good theme behind this new one.   And it is just one-- a box of six figures, not multiple boxes of several figures like previous exclusives.

So Adam, can we expect a 1-or-2 figure early preview like we got with last year's Elite Forces sets or will we have to wait until SDCC'08 to see the whole set?

Who's to say something hasn't already been revealed?
