I'm really excited about these (though I wish they would've made a Caedus one).

I would just like to have action figures of the Solo kids, back when I actually like to read about them. I would really debate with myself if I wanted a Caedus figure or not because I'd have trouble even thinking about owning one....however, if it came first and I was promised an Anakin Solo figure would be next if Caedus sold well, then I'd buy at least one Caedus Smile

The Katarn/Vong 2 pack looks good Smile Of course, an official pic isn't out, but c'mon, its a vong action figure! Anyone actually gonna skip that one? I'm not...

Me neither. The Darth Krayt/Imperial Knight and Luke/Lumiya one looked neat as well. The only problem is, if I buy the latter one I will have three Luke action figures. Confused

Is it worth it for a Lumiya action figure though? And the Krayt pack is gonna be great!

Oh, I blew the 3 Luke figures several years ago (Laughing), but it would be worth it maybe for Lumiya. I would consider getting any EU ones because if the sales are strong for those, you'd expect them to make even more!?

Oh it would be so worth it for Lumiya.

Yeah, it's definitely great to see more EU figures coming out. Lumiya looks very cool, and the Vong always look great. I'm liking the look of the Imperial Knight and Krayt, too. So, hopefully they'll sell well so more EU figures are made! Personally Reepicheep, I would say the same as Caedus_16, go for the Luke/Lumiya pack, I mean, come on, how many chances are you gonna get to have a Lumiya figue? You can always sell off a Luke or two afterwards... Smile I wonder how hard these will be to track down in the UK...?

As far as I'm aware, current stuff is easy to find in UK, so these comic pack hopefully will be.

Sell Luke? Hmm...
Well as long as they all have different outfits, I'll probably keep them. Sometimes I use my second Luke as Luuke, no idea what the third on could be...

Just wanna discuss 3 of the new comic packs real quick...

Katarn/Vong: The Vong looks awful, I have to admit. It looks kinda corny and not at all how they've been portrayed. The armor looks mechanical and the amphistaff is the part I'm most impressed with. Katarn looks good though.

Krayt/Knight: Krayt looks amazing. So amazing in fact that I've forgotten what else is coming in that pack other than that its a knight. I'll buy this one for sure!

Lumiya/Luke: A buy for sure. Luke with a shoto looks good, and interchangable Lumiya/Brisha heads for the other figure!? Outstanding!. I wish she had the black cloak she's been artistically portrayed with, but those are easy for make or come by in those size of action figure so its not a problem. This looks to be the most worth it comic pack Smile

The Vong is an accurate portrayal based on how it was seen in Nathan P. Butler's Equals and Opposites comic.

I just looked and you are indeed correct sir, but I didn't really like that portrayal. It still looks too...dare I say it...infidel...for my taste. I like the portrayal of the vong from the NJO covers or from the Legacy comics. Those are consistent and have that biological feel to their armor. This one looks a lot brighter and less threatening, as well as quite mechanical. Just an observation though.
