From the Q&A at JD today -

Expanded Universe waves of figures have come into vogue it seems, and while 2007 saw a mix/match wave of EU figures, the 2008 wave of Clone Wars 2D figures has me wondering if the next EU wave we could get will be a mix of characters from various sources, or if it will be a specific source that all the figures come from (IE: all Knights of the Old Republic characters hypothetically). Do you happen to have any information you could share on that, and the thought process that goes into the EU picking for a single wave?

**Yes, we can confirm that there will be six figures in that wave, and they will be drawn from various sources. This wave is comprised of some pretty high-demand figures from top-to-bottom, and we are confident that when we do release the details they will be *very* well-received. Right now, this wave is slotted in for very late 2009/early 2010 if the current schedule holds. Right after that, we will have a dedicated wave of The Force Unleashed figures.

I remember Hasbro talking about a making a TFU Shaak Ti... looks like they really are confirming a TFU wave. Good news in my opinion... I wonder what all we can expect... probably a few repacks, which I really don't want to see all that bad... save the repacks for Battle Packs Hasbro...

Made up were getting an entire TFU wave!

I just got TFU on the Wii last week and am loving the characters and troops in it, just got up to Nar Shadaa last night in the bar was shocked to find the Emperor discovered the apprentice and Vader wants a hand in the rebellion. (I did a good job of not spoiling the story before playing the game) Oh only cost £25 now they are dropping price everywhere.

Proxy
501st Stormtroopers
Wookiees
Stormtrooper Commando
Kota's Militia
Sentinal Guards
Rogue Jedi
Kazden Pratus

I also hope they repack from the last TFU wave cause I missed all of it except for BD Vader and the EVO trooper

but you're forgetting the coolest thing they could do.

UBP:

1 "Mandalorian"
1 Basilisk war droid
1 Garm del Iblis
1 Ch'opaa

I finished the game and graphic novel, It was a great EU experience. If you have the Wii/PS2 version then Ch'opaa will be the second to last boss, he wont appear if you're playing the X360 or PS3 versions

Well i just got done beating Maris Brood to a pummel!

Firstly i forgot to mention i want a standard Felucian Warrior that can go on all fours and the Rodian Drexl Roosh!

Anyways now i want.

Ozzik Sturn and his AT KT
Imperial medic
Standard Imp officer armoured
Young Leia
Prisoner Bail
Apprentice in Corillean Outfit and Jungle outfit etc.

Noticed looking on Wiki Sturn had a bigger role on PS3/XB and some of the troopers are different on the Wii.

Marev


Why? It looks to have insert molded (ball) joints at the knees, shoulders and elbows.

I know the figure is going to be good, but that picture isn't doing Shaak Ti any justice.

I think the picture is just a reference pic of the character, but not intended to illustrate how the final figure would look. Look to the notes around the figure to get a sense of how well articulated the figs may be.

A complete real TFU wave would be very welcome. LucasArts' games designers deserve the creds. Proxy, Kota's militia, Felucians, Kazdan, hyper articulated Royal Guard and Shadow Guard (no friggin' ROTS body), Troopers, Rodians + skiff, Scrap Guards, Wookiees, a young Leia (well, who doesn't want her young :wink: ) and last but certainly not least an over the top Shaak Ti. I look forward to her being immortalized in plastic really, really much and am very curious if she'd look like anything we've made during our Group Project!
