EE Exclusive Comic Packs
« on: June 28, 2010, 10:59 PM »
Sounds like the shelved packs are coming to EE

http://www.asmzine.com/geekly-rewind/2010/06/28/hasbro-star-wars-qa-june-2010-answers/#more-511

I would assume that would mean:



Jarael  and Rohlan Dyre
Deliah Blue and Darth Nihl

Plus some others I guess

I'm sure the Noghri/Ralrra set is another one since Hasbro has confirmed that one and it was supposed to be in the same wave as the Camie/Fixer set. 

The fourth though has me stumped.  There were rumors of a Fel/Isard Rogue set and a Montross/Mareel set at one point.  Also Nom Anor was confirmed for a comic pack, but I think Hasbro said he'd be a basic figure instead.  Hmmm...

I'm not sure what the 4th set is going to be either, but if you read the answers that Snowtroopers.ca received yesterday, Hasbro mentions an exception to their no female Imperial Officers rule.  That would lead me to think Fel/Isard.

I'm not even worried on sets 3 and 4 as long as I get my Delia Blue, Jarael and Nihl figures!

This news pleases me greatly - I am so glad that the Darth Nihl / Deliah Blue set is gonna see the light of day. The Noghri set will be cool since it will be a nice companion piece to the Luke/Mara and Thrawn/Karrde sets we already have.

I guess the Rebel Pilots comic pack must have done pretty well for them - which is great, good for EE! Hopefully, these 100% new figure sculpts will do just as well, if not better.

YAY! I will most def try to pick up the Nihl/Blue set. I'm still considering the Jarael set. It's great to see that Hasbro went out of their way to find these sets a home, considering what a crappy job it can do in terms of distribution.

With the 'Legacy' comic series ending (D@MMIT! >:(), I'm glad we're getting Nihl. He'll look great with Krayt and Talon. It's a shame, though, that we're only getting Cade and Deliah, and not Jariah Syn, to complete the crew. It makes sense that Deliah is packed with such a strong and appealing character, since she most likely wouldn't be too great by herself.

I'm geeked, and will likely nab extras of at least the Noghri set, as that's one I really was looking forward to.

Fel/Isaard could be interesting too.  Comics continue I guess...  in some capacity.

Until all the "produced" items are done at least.

This is exciting! I just removed these from my wish list and was sad that we wouldn't get them. I wish though that they would come to retail so that I wouldn't have to pay shipping on them on top of the higher price they will be at EE.

And because I am required by law to plug these (and giddy as all heck over Baron Fel), the The final 4 comic packs are now up for pre-order on Entertainment Earth.  They are Entertainment Earth exclusives (with the sticker and the whole ball of wax.)   I recently got a glimpse at the protos in person, and while I'm easy to please, I really like these.

4 figures have new sculpts
2 figures have new heads, coloring, and minor changes
2 figures look great and are mostly new bits but will be revealed later

As always, they are slightly cheaper (about $15 per) when you buy a set/case over individual figures.

Great news Adam.  But let me say...DRAT!  I'm disappointed that you weren't able to pick up the Noghri & Ralracheen comic 2-pack from HEIR TO THE EMPIRE.

Well, they aren't a higher price; $59.99 for the set of 4 which is $14.99 each, or about retail.

Deliah Blue/Darth Nihl
Baron Fel/Ysanne Isard
Jarael/Rohlan Dyre
Jaster Mereel/Montross

I really couldn't give a rats ass about Mereel and Montross, I don't really need two more Mandos but would have loved that Noghri.  I'm okay with Isard and Fel...more indifferent, really, but I'm fine with that.  The price is okay and I'm happy to get the Deliah and Jarael sets.
