Yeah, Katarn's like a personal thing for me but a Dark Forces one would certainly rock...  That said, I'd be equally happy with Carth Onassi for sure, or another KOTOR party character...  Likewise I'd be into them looking at another popular sector of the EU too that isn't really touched, or Dash Rendar since SOTE figures are pretty dated at this point.

How bout that friggin' Noghri?  ::)

Marek's a neat effort, but I can't say I was really upset with his other figures though.  I thought they were all kind of neat, nice articulation...  Sculpts maybe not perfectly accurate, but not horrific.  For me it's like Mara Jade...  Maybe a Jedi one of her would be neat, but honestly I'm ok with that comic one we got and don't necessarilly feel like I have to have a new one that's 100% accurate to Shannon Baksa's look or whatever.  Some stuff I just hate to see them go to, so soon after they went to it already and didn't really waste the effort. 

Hell i'm even ok with Katarn as he is, and would only want a new Katarn if it was a purely Dark Forces looking Katarn, sans beard and with the coat and body armor.

Sick of Marek to be honest.  I don't really mind EU but I really wish they would move past certain characters and produce some others on people's short lists.  Maybe Guri for instance?  Nomi Sunrider? Please not another damn clonetrooper either.  Anyway, love the Nikto!

I like all three.  If I can find them, I'll buy them.

Count me in on the Nikto-Loving Bandwagon, along with the "Galen Marek AGAIN?!?" Bandwagon. I'll probably pass on the TOR chick too, although if I ever play the game I might change my stance.

That Nikto is a nice surprise. Love checking exact characters off the vintage list.

I was thinking Halo, but yeah...

I must be the only person who liked the Force Unleashed game.

Somebody must have considering how many figures Hasbro made for that game.

A female "Boba Fett' with red hair.  Wow, if they would have given her a bare midriff and tramp stamp, the fanboy-gasm would have melted the internet.

Total waste of plastic (as most EU and PT stuff is, sorry JJ).

Give me my Death Squad Commander and SA Hoth Luke and I can get off this roller coaster.

I liked the first game, and most of the figures that have been made... apparently we're not the only ones when you consider the prices the TFU figures are now on ebay, and really none of the TFU stuff can be labeled as pegwarming, except perhaps the latest set, which was the weakest offering from TFU that Hasbro has put together.

Just give me a second to jot this down in my notebook for custom figure ideas.

Nikto is well depicted, good adaptation of vintage toy.

Galen shows lots of accesories

Shae looks accurated, but with her line of the game
comes again the problem of anachronism: the new characters
from the past wear more advanced armors than the Classic Trilogy
or even the PT.

No apologies...  I just like EU.  I'm not even as into PT stuff at this point...  EU is more interesting to me now actually.

But hold your horses on those other two being your lasts...  You cannot back out till:

-The Vintage Endor Rebel is updated
-The POTF2 Endor Rebel gets an update
-Rebel Ishi Tib gets an update
-Endor Home One Briefing Rebel Tech gets made
-Yavin Rebel Officers get made
-Captain Antilles (ANH) gets an SA update for a nice Fleet Officer figure
-Nik Sant gets a Rebel Commando figure
-Hoth Technicians/Taun Taun Wranglers get figures
-Fleet Troopers get head variations
-And we finally get some generic Stormtrooper Officers in black outfits like Praji

You're roped in there till the line's demise I think. :P
