I think you can blame the Vong on the art...  He's pretty true to who Kyle's kicking the crap out of in the comic they're from.  Kyle is almost a fan wank, as they're really trying to deliver EU in the comic packs from various sources other than comics.  Kyle looks like this in that comic, however his other EU established that he has "aged" by this point.  He had grey in his hair before the NJO era if I'm not mistaken.

I think this set's mostly about just getting a Vong army builder to people, and resclpting Kyle without taking him away from his true origins in terms of look and things.  This is complete Video Game Kyle, probably because the Artist didn't know any better, and I think Hasbro jumped on the chance to update the character.  I'm pretty ecstatic.

I thought the Vong looked good but I thought they wore helmets and things too.  It is what it is...  I didn't think they looked much different than this.

Yeah, but here's the thing about most SW design: it makes sense.  I think Katarn looks alright, but what purpose does that big turdy shoulder pad have?  It's just silly looking, and would look assinine on a real actor.  That's the type of thing that comic artists draw for the sake of drawing.

Without getting into the whole Star Trek/Vong, people hate EU thing again. As much as I am a huge EU and Vong fan I really am disappointed in the Vong fig. Something about it just isn't what I had hoped for. I can't put my finger on it.

I have to agree, seems too muscular or something... like a He-Man figure.  I'll get a couple I'm sure, but I don't dig it as much as I had hoped I would.

Those comic packs don't look too bad.  I'm happy to see we're getting essentially an Utapau trooper in that one pack, since that is one figure that I always thought should be repacked into the Legends assortment since it is really the one we see the most of in ROTS, and it was somewhat short lived on the pegs during the TSC days.

I don't get it.  A repaint and two accessories is a "comic pack" now?

They will not let go of the Blackhole thing.......please let this concept get lost in a blackhole.

If they are going that route how about an office Palps with some of those statues.

Yeah, WTF is this?  I thought the trooper looked cool, but I'm not paying $14 for him and two pieces of crap.  Boo.   >:(

That one's confusing me too.  That's the kind of **** they can keep, especially with comic packs jacked up in price too.  I have no idea what it's from, and I'm just as glad since it makes ignoring the accessories easier.

Very lame.

Wow, some really good stuff and a stinker or so.

Tholme/T'ra Saa SWEET!!! I've wanted these figures. Glad to see them in a comic pack.
Blackhole Stormie/bulbous thingy... PASS. Not really diggin' this set and it's NOT worth the scratch. Make this a single carded fig with the bulb as an accessory, and it's a sell.
Kashyyyk Clone Commander/Clone okay cool. Noth thrilled with the set, but I'll bite on one. They'll look good with my other Kasyyyk troops.
Utapau Lt. Clone/Grunt Clone Nice, I'll bite on this set. Prolly get 3-4 sets of this since I've got a rather large Utapau army of clones. (No joke, I've got over 130 Utapau clones.)
Ulic Qel Droma/Exar Kun SWEETNESS!!!! I've wanted those characters for awhile now also. It's a buy for me!
I'm just a humble collector trying to make his way through the universe...of toy aisles.

are the rifles on the U. clones new or are they just the Evo. mold?  Something about them looks different, maybe just me.  Definately be getting these, especially the U's cause I got known of them.  Just hopefully the ankle joints aren't orange like the Airborne were cused with.

I am not digging the sculpts of Exar & Droma, after years of waiting I am not impressed by either figure. I wonder if we will see better shots of the Cammie/Fixer pac and the DE Wookie/Alien in the powerpoint for future sets as we saw a few months ago.

The only set shown thus far that I am digging is the Traa/Tholme pack.
