The more I've looked at it Matt, I agree, I think it's a Space Trooper from the Zahn Trilogy... Compared to art and the original figure, plus I think Hasbro mentioned the Spacetrooper getting a resculpt(?), I really think that's what this figure is. He'll not combine with Katarn then...
Still, this Katarn's an enigma to me... If this Katarn comes with the Yuzahn Vong, isn't he inaccurate then? I though Katarn was dressed as a Jedi when fighting the Vong, and this is clearly a video game Kyle. I don't believe he appeared in comic books in his video game atire ever... I could be wrong so please if someone has scans I'd like to see them.
I'm giddy to get the new Katarn figure, I'm disappointed this appears to be a Spactrooper though. I hate that design for Spacetroopers, as it's very illogical and just meant to look flashy. The Darktrooper, being a droid, made more sense. How a human has a gun embedded in his forearm is beyond me.
I'm wondering now, who will the Spacetrooper come with? Katarn seems destined to come wit the Vong figure, but that's cool as it's a new video game Katarn it appears, and that's AOK by me. I wanted that much, much more than the Jedi Knight (NJO) Katarn in robes and crap.
