The new Juno Eclipse has been revealed at Banthaskull.com

Yeah, we get some cool pics. Thanks for the mention Chewie.

The Juno looks a lot better than the last. I'm guessing it wouldn't be too hard to have both in a collection as two seperate characters.

That is an awesome looking figure. I can't wait to see what other figures are included in these sets. 8)

I think that PROXY is pretty much a lock.  And I also think that Kazdan Paratus is pretty likely, too.  He's an Aleena, and I could see Hasbro retooling Tsui Choi into a Kazdan Paratus figure.

I would also expect some troopers, too.  Especially since Hasbro has stated that packs like these are going to depend significantly on existing tools.

As for Galen Marek?  I think we're going to see figures that are similar to the Evolutions offering, but with a new headsculpt that's more like the actor whose likeness was the final template for the Secret Apprentice.

Wow, that Juno is sweet.  Definitely an improvement over the old one!  Too bad this is a boxed set - I'm likely not going to buy extra exclusive box sets.   :P

I don't think Hasbro can make a lot of new troops from this game, especially if they're using existing parts - and besides, they've pretty much hit every troop in the game (except the jet trooper). I do think though that Kazdan Paratus has a good chance.

No matter where I go, I can't see that Juno picture at work. (%@^#*& Websense!)

Is it a man or woman? It appears to be some sort of disturbing androgynous blend, with the face of a man and the cleavage of a woman.

Let me guess - EU character.  ::)

Great job giving BS credit, Chewie!  The internet police will be pleased.

I could totally see Hasbro repainting either the Jump Trooper or the EVO Trooper for these sets OR giving either one some different accessories.  Also, the Emporer's Shadow Guard was easily THE most scarce figure of the 30AC line and I think they would like to get that one back into circulation.  And I think it would definitely be nice to see the Felucian warrior (Rancor pack-in) offered up again, too.

Also, Proxy was officially confirmed by Hasbro in this SW Collector Q&A session.

I don't know that I'd call the Shadow Guard more scarce than Revan and Malak, but he was a toughie to track down.  I saw him maybe 10 times total and only bought a handful and regretted passing on the others then as I really liked him.  Malak and Revan I saw twice and once respectively though, and never again.

I gotta say I like the look of the new Juno as well. I can use the old one as a generic officer.

For those that haven't seen them yet, Hasbro posted a Q&A round-up with the new Juno Eclipse and Galen Marek figures that will eventually be part of the box sets -

I hadn't seen the Marek before - it's pretty nice and kitbashy.  :P

Nor had I...  Who had that?  I don't even remember anyone mentioning it.

Very kitbashy indeed.  I see a LOT of Jango in there...  Not sure who else.

Nor had I... 

I hadn't seen it either until tonight... which is why I decided to share it.  I guess we were all sick the day it was shown off.   :P

Hmmm.  It looks cool to me...  I like getting a new version of him regardless of how that photo decided to turn up. :P
