Bear in mind that there's also a number of comic figures tooled.

DD mentioned a little about how he wants Comic packs to return and how he thinks they can improve.  He also was hinting at a number of things were in the planning stages and possibly got to tooling but he didn't want to get specific.

One thing he did mention was that there was a Dagger Squadron comic set kind of related to the Dagger Squad B-Wing that TRU had.

Anyway, there's obviously others that did make tooling it appears like the Wookiee/Noghri set, etc.  It's easy to slip characters like that into a wave when the tooling is already done.  The big financial hurdle is behind you at that point.

I'm not sure what wookie it is, but the Noghri would also be an army builder, and a very good idea.

Interesting proposition from Derryl DePriest's comments.  I'm not totally sold on some of the EU characters that were in the Fan Choice Poll.  SOME of those are probably going to happen.  But I think we're also going to see a mix of some comic characters that may have been in the pipeline along with some popular video game based figures.  KOTOR, The Force Unleashed, Republic Commando and Battlefront all have MAJOR fanbases, and I think Hasbro will want to reach some of that audience.

I am fine with it as long as it not just another orange, x-wing jumpsuit EU figure.  Or a comic book colored clonetrooper again.  I hope it is actual EU characters like Guri, Dash Rendar, Nomi Sunrider, etc.

This is good news only if they make Rick Duel, Dani and Chihdo.

I hope they define "EU" a little more clearly. As far as we know, it could be guys like Luke or Han in wacky EU costumes. Personally hoping for some Shadows of the Empire goodness (Dash Rendar, Leebo, Guri, Coruscant Trooper)

I agree with Diddly.

I will even go a bit further with as long as it is OT based EU then OK..but if it is Prequel or anything after Heir to the Empire, I'm out.

This will break my carded habit, though I imagine some of these will be realistic versions of CW characters.  Actually I think $9 a figure will break my carded habit, so...

I guess I'll have to take it on a case by case basis.

Sounds like it's not just EU, but Deleted Scene Figures as well.  :D

It sounded a little different than that...  Possibly due to all 6 films having deleted scenes on the BR Disc, so maybe there'd be more than just Sandstorm Leia or Luke building a saber.

This isn't that bad of an idea - although I wish Hasbro would use actual pictures of the characters from EU sources (comics, cartoons, novel covers... etc.), but, judging by the Nom Anor card, Hasbro's using artist-drawn photos.

Glad they're finding a way to slip the EU back into the mix, they've been pretty anti-EU (except for TCW) lately.
