Purge Trooper looks like those robots from X-Men. :)

As Nicklab said Kyle Katarn comes with the Yuuzhan Vong in a comic pack.  They are based off their appearance in the Star Wars Tales story Equals and Opposites.

Hasbro had said we're getting a Katarn in a comic pack with the Vong soldier, but the problem is, I don't recall Katarn wearing his video game gear (ala this figure) in the comic book (as I noted earlier).  The Comic in SW Tales I thought had Katarn as a Jedi Knight in robes and things...  Wasn't he protecting refugees from the Vong in that storyline?
Or are there multiple NJO-era Katarn storylines that have him sporting his Infiltrator/video game duds?

Either way I'm quite happy to get a new Katarn figure that pretty accurately represents his video game look.  He's even young (no grey) looking which really supports his video game characters (the first 2 anyway) over the NJO look.  Pretty cool...  The Trooper I think is going to be the new Spacetrooper Hasbro had mentioned somewhere along the line.  Bummer as the Dark Trooper would be much cooler IMO, but whatever.  The Purge Trooper was hinted at on other boards but I think this is another Thrawn Trilogy comic pack figure on the way.  I wonder who it'll come with though?


No this is the outfit he wore from the comic.  Technically this isn't his DFII Jedi Knight outfit, it's close but not quite right for that appearance.

You can see images of Kyle from the comic here: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Image:Katarnnjo.JPG

This image shows the outfit that this figure has: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Image:Kyle.jpg

This is the best image of how Kyle looked in DF Jedi Knight: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Image:Dfh3.jpg

and finally how he looked in Jedi Outcast: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Image:MediumStyle.JPG


As far as I know I don't think Kyle Katarn has ever worn traditional Jedi robes in any of his appearances.  I know his description in the LotF series matched how he looked in  Jedi Outcast.

Ah ok, I was thinking of a SW Tales (Equals and Opposites) when he's in a robe disguised, but he's wearing basically his same outfit you pictured there Corax, plus his coat he wore in Dark Forces actually (pretty neat).  This makes a pretty great figure for any era then, that's good.  I'm gonna make a jacketed custom now too for Dark Forces, maybe with a younger looking head as well. 

he is ripped, but really a guy like him should be pretty ripped, and even his live-action dude in Jedi Knight was a fair sized guy, so I dig the figure a lot.  It's pretty accurate.  Better than the Baron Fel that, I think, they made look hideous with the shoulder joints.

I'm thinking the trooper posted earlier is a Space Trooper. I believe Hasbro confirmed or hinted at an update in the Q&As, plus the blaster in the arm is something of a giveaway.

Hope this will be a spacetrooper or a darktrooper. Itīs time for Hasbro to make dark troopers phase I and II. I want to collect them if they appear.

I believe you're right on that one, I just hope it's not a comic pack and we have to buy a non-army builder guy just get the space trooper.  I want 10 but don't know what I'd do if he comes with a C'boath

Same here & dont give them ideas  :)

I know some of you guys are richer than I, but I painfully paid  $273 for 20 white Republic Commando's comic packs, thats not including Omega & Delta squad  :P

I missed alot of more cuz I didn't have money left for the rest on the pegs, next time I was there there were none. I wish it was a single pack back then.

If we get this (Spacetrooper) figure as a single for $6.94, it would be ideal, we can get "40  figures" for that amount I have paid for my Commandos.

Or more convenient, if they make a pack including two Space/Dark trooper,  as they did with the dumb battle droids, I would become Hasbro's whore  :)

Do or are we still have chance to cry before Hasbro & make a petition as how we would love to be this figure be packed or released? <---Ahem!..excuse my ignorance  :)

Crap...well, I like Kyle Katarn, but the Yuzahn Vong are crappity crap. I'll be keeping the Katarn figure and trading away the standard and unimaginative alien enemy Yuzhan Vong.

Unloading an army builder won't be hard...  Even if it's a clear Star Trek ripoff army builder. :)

When will those figures be available? I'm really anxious about buying Kyle Katarn.

August.  For both Kyle Katarn in his 2-pack, and the Dark Trooper which is a BAF from the WalMart exclusive Droid Factory 2-packs.
