I don't know about y'all, but as a fan of the EU, I LOVED the comic packs. Hasbro did release some rather wonky ones toward the end, such as the IG-97 and General Mohc 2-pack from Wal-Mart, but we got some really good figures as well, such as Kir Kanos, Vilmarh Grahrk, A'Sharad Hett, the Dark Woman and others.
I saw Hasbro's Marvel comic 2-packs in Toys R Us the other day and started brainstorming on ideas for sure-fire 2-packs that would be popular. These aren't pairings of obscure characters that only uber-fans would want, but ideas that would appeal to the masses for their interesting characters and accompanying comic books, as well as satisfying collectors. Here are my ideas so far (please feel free to add your own).
1) Kenix Kil and Mirith Sinn from Crimson Empire II. Kenix Kil is simply a REALLY cool bounty hunter, and Mirith Sinn is a great female character. I can't find a good in-comic shot of Mirith, but her outfit is better than in Crimson Empire I.
Kenix Kil should definitely have a cloth poncho and ball-jointed hips.
2) Jacen and Jaina Solo from Invasion.
This is an easy win-win for fans and Hasbro. Re-release these hard to find figures and include an issue of the comic.
3) K'Kruhk with hat and Cade Skywalker without jacket.
Another win-win. We'd finally get K'Kruhk's hat, revised Cade, and both of these hard to find figures would make people happy.
Cade would look a bit like this:
4) Re-release Tholme and T'raa Sa'a - I never saw these, and their prices are ridiculous on eBay.
5) Re-release Uliq Qel Droma and Exar Kun - same as above. If you want to make these 2 releases different, just change the comic book issue!
6) Zayne Carrick and Griff - really cool Jedi with yellow lightsaber and an interesting and different Snivvian. Plus, this is one of the best comic series out there.
7) Kam Solusar and Empatojayos Brand from Dark Empire. Kam is a HUGE character in the EU and Empatojayos Brand is quite unique. Add a lightsaber attachment to his mechanical hand and a clear hover-stand and you've got a weird, fun figure - both from one of the best comics ever.
8) Kyp Durron and either Kirana Ti or Tionne from Jedi Academy: Leviathan. Kyp Durron is another big character in the EU as is Tionne. Kirana Ti is interesting AND Dathomiri.
9) Dass Jennir and Beyghor Sadehtt
Both from the immensely popular Dark Times comics. Dass Jennir (bigger pic) is the star and Beyghor is an extremely cool Verpine Jedi - who wouldn't want him?
10) Guri and Dash Rendar - Guri is one of the most requested figures, and poor Dash needs an upgrade with working holster, bare arms and better sculpt.
I'll add more as I think of them.
