The correct and real costume and look I associated with Kun is found on that particular comic book cover.

These figures are a major disappointment and let down, but as someone above stated, perhaps fixable. I will use a Darth Vader body to correct Kun.
The cover on Page 1 of this thread? From TOTJ:Dark Lords of the Sith #6? That's not Exar Kun in the Vader-ish suit, it's Ulic Qel-Droma. It's Ulic's saber (green blade, same hilt as on other Fleming covers to the series) and Ulic's hair (Exar's got his pulled back in a ponytail on #1 and others)

So basically we're getting Sith Exar and Jedi Ulic, rather than both as Sith Lords.

Has anyone heard when this set is supposed to be coming? The Comic Con pictures on the previous page said September, so these guys have obviously been postponed.

Re: Exar Kun & Ulic Qel Droma Comic 2-Pack

Postponed? Not likely. Being as it's taken over two months for people to finally be able to find the last wave with some regularity, and now the pegs are clogged with repacks, and these figures haven't shown up on ebay yet loose or packaged, I suspect it's going to be some time before we see this one.

Remember, the release dates are just guidelines. Myself, I typically find stuff about a month after reports start coming in of people finds, unless I get extremely lucky.

When did they change it from this fall?
All comic packs have been delayed. The first good pics of the Walmart exclusive CPs have just shown up and those packs were supposed to hit stores in September.

Re: Expanded Universe - Tales Jedi Comic 2-Pack

i've been looking forward to these, even though i've never read any of the comics of totj. the characters just looked so cool. but now seeing the actual figures i am disappointed. they looked so cool in the comics and they look so crappy as the figures. i'm pretty sure they don't have the scar on exar's head and they made him old. plus thats not even what his hilt looks like. his clothes look stupid too. :mad:

The markings are in fact there, and I love the looks of this figure. Furthermore, that is Ulic, not Exar.

Re: Expanded Universe - Tales Jedi Comic 2-Pack

This is the first comic pack, in awhile, that I'm really looking forward to. I think I'll wait till they hit stores rather than jump on any online retailers.

Re: Expanded Universe - Tales Jedi Comic 2-Pack

Tales of the Jedi

TOTJ is one of those aspects of the SW franchise that Hasbro kind of missed. Something like 6 (?) comic runs, full of Sith, Jedi, Mandolorians... that alone should have been enough to sell it as a marketing opportunity.
It's great that we might finally get Exar Kuun and Ulic Qel Droma, 2 of the most influential EU charactors created.
There are so many good subjects from the series that woud make awesome action figures. (Nomi Sunrider, Odan Urr, Naga Sadow, Jori Daragon, Vodo Siosk Baas, Master Thon, etc) Without the comic packs,the methods for getting these charactors are diminished. Maybe we ought to push for a multi-pack, like the upcoming TFU packs?

Unless I've missed one, we have just 3 from this period: Exar Kuun, Ulic Qel Droma, and The Mandolore. I'd love to fill up just the corner of a shelf someday with more of these charactors!

Re: Expanded Universe - Tales Jedi Comic 2-Pack


It's here!
I was in HK for a week last week. I saw the case with my own eyes and couldn't get it because I didn't have enough.
Fortunately, a friend of mine is coming this week and I should get this pack around this Friday from him! Will post pics then!

The case ratio of this wave is:
1X Krayt & Dare
1X yuuzhan vong & Kyle Katarn
1X Luke & Lumiya
1X Blackhole Stormtrooper & Blackhole hologram
1X Clone Trooper & Clone Lieutentant (Routine Valor)
1X Kashyyyk Scout Trooper & Clone Trooper (Republic)
1X Master Tholme & T'ra Saa (Routine Valor)
1X Exar Kun & Ulic Qel Droma (Tales of the Jedi)

According to the store owner lady, there were very few cases, but HK gets very little anyway. Another chance for people who missed out on Krayt, Katarn, and Lumiya sets, but Exar Kun and Tra' Saa are both gonna be hard to find. Hopefully this will hit US soon too.


I think Exar Kun follows loosely the Tales of the Jedi:Dark Lord of the Sith #6 inside. It looks more ornate, probably from some other artwork? I am not too familiar with the storyline, I gotta admit.


The double lightsaber separates into two. Looking at wiki and the posts above, should've looked different I guess.



The forehead Sith Symbol, and the three-lined scar on his right cheek. His face from the sideview looks similar to Steven Seagal, don't you think?


The shoulder armor has a peg, and the cape also has a hole also. The peg of the shoulder armor sticks into the cape and into the back of course.


As posted above, Ulic Qel Droma.
Pretty nice.


Overall, I think it's a pretty good set even with the lightsaber.

Thanks for the great pics!

Also, what part of Hong Kong were you in? Was it a little underground shop in Mong Kok? I was there in winter '08 and got some great deals from the lady running that place. Mandy's Store, I think it was.

Cool. I'm glad to know it's still around. That shop was one of the highlights of my trip, and has the best Star Wars prices in Hong Kong.

Exar Kun turned out Awesome I'm definitely going to have to track him down, and I know it's going to be a tough job as it is currently with Darth Krayt!

These packs should be released everywhere, Fisto. I just hope they ship in large enough quantities for me to get a couple of Exar/Ulic packs.

Thanks for all the great pics gunbuster718!
Would you be able to post another photo of Exar, straight on, without his cape? Kind thanks in advance!

And speaking of looks, Exar's reminding me more of Robert DeNiro

These arent too good but would be ok to have. Kun is very underwhelming and he was perhaps one of the most anticipated figures for a number of years now .

Re: Expanded Universe - Tales Jedi Comic 2-Pack

My only complaint with these two, is he fact that Exar looks waaaaay to old in my opinion. Shouldn't he be late twenties to mid thirties. Dude looks like he's in his sixties or seventies.

Re: Expanded Universe - Tales Jedi Comic 2-Pack

The workmanship on Exar is really nice, but the way Hasbro chose to depict him is odd. His head, hands and feet are enormous, which in turn make him look short. He also looks like he has a bit of a double chin, and added to those skinny arms and thicker torso make him look a bit paunchy. It's like it's a SNL parody of Exar Kun, played by some short middle-aged guy who's out of shape.
Exar is supposed to be tall, dark and grim and rear-kicking.
Sorry to sound so [censored]-picky about this, gang; I'm just disappointed. After all the modifications I plan on doing, I think the only thing left over from the actual figure will be his cape and sabers.

Ulic looks good but I'm a bit disappointed by Exar Kun's head. He's absolutely not intimidating and he looks too old...

Hasbro's Exar looks like an old Steven Seagal wannabe.

This is how he should have looked like IMO:

It's Hasbro's 1st attempt at this fig. They HAD to botch it, so he can be resculpted in a couple years.

Thank you for the pic. His head and his hands look a bit better on this new pic... but man, look at his feet.


That must be Exar Clown.
