Rebelscum have posted a list of figures from Hasbro UK, please use this thread to discuss this upcoming figure. Keep in mind no pics exist yet so take it still as a rumor till we see pics.



Thoughts on seeing this character in plastic form and on a vintage card?

I guess so, but usually his voice is, well, "EU sucks".

I was kinda disappointed these guys were basically just clone trooper armour variants and thought the TOR guys should have tried to come up with something more original. That said, I do like this variant, and would quite like a Jace Malcolm fig (which is the guy in the pic) . Preferably the version from the second (Hope) trailer, as he seems to have had a promotion since the third trailer, which was set before.

Better yet, they should do like Shae and include two different headsculpts - helmet and no helmet.
Commander guy has a pauldron, but I don't see why it couldn't be removable so people can army build regular troops.

Keep in mind that Jace Malcolm's shoulder symbols are slightly different in each trailer however.

Oh yeah, this guy definitely deserved to take the slot of a new troop builder that was actually in the films. Who wanted a snowtrooper commander anyways? Not me. I'd much rather have this carbon-copy of Cody. In fact, if I had my way, I'd see to it that every figure from here on out was some EU character who's design was blatantly ripped off from a preexisting film character. :rolleyes:

I'm glad people are getting what they want, but I wholeheartedly agree pal. I'd much rather have slots be filled with figures from the films.

Okay, we got Malgus and Shae from the Deceived trailer, with this home-skillet likely coming I have to ask - Where's my Satele?

I was talking this over with a friend as I have the same view point that too much of the tech in SWTOR has an OT/PT flair despite being some thousands of years in the past. He felt it was done so that the non-star wars fan could feel familiar with the universe. It makes sense from a game play stand point but not necessarily from a "meta" stand-point (for lack of better word, sorry).

As for the figure, I'll probably get a one as I play that class in the game. ;)

Are you sure Jace has a pauldron, Oddball_Fett? I know he has a bandolier, but a pauldron? I must've missed that...

But whether it's Jace, a generic trooper (or both), I'll definitely be buying it. :awesome:

Yup, defo sure. It's a diddy one compared to your average Sandtrooper, but it's there. In the third trailer he has two normal rounded shoulder pads like the rest of the troops.

Also he has the stylized TOR Jedi symbol on both shoulders in trailer 3, but a triangle/dagger shape symbol on his right shoulder in trailer 2. But in both he has his bandolier along with his big Rambo knife!

You're right! I never noticed that! Wow, learn somethin' new every day.

Oh, and when is this supposed to be released?

If it's the guy from the trailers it'll be alright I guess, he'd fit in with any Clone tbh, the designs are so similar/unoriginal. I guess that would suggest Satele Shan is on the way :disgusted:

It definitely does mean Satele Shan would be on her way. Unfortunately, all the 2012 EU slots have been filled. So here's to 2013!

What do these same soldiers look like clones?

I would of much preferred a New Republic Soldier to be made, that could possible get me back into collecting, but these poor choices with TOR is still driving me away.

If that's what they'll be releasing then I'll pass!

But I'll definitely buy a few if this is what it looks like, it looks just close enough to mingle with my Clones as specialists or something.
There's hardly a difference though, except the first one was yellow instead of orange and had a different helmet. I'd buy either - in fact, I'd buy any of the full-suit trooper armor in TOR. Just not the early-level bullet-proof vests and trousers, lol. ;)

Usually I'd disagree but not here. A waste of a slot IMO. Its an unoriginal, unimaginative copy of a pe-existing character.

Looks like 2012 is going to be a good EU year. Finally. :D

Fingers crossed for Satele Shan, Darth Jadus and the Sith trooper.

Ooh, even though this is thousands of years before the movies, soldiers are still wearing white clonish/stormtrooperish armor? How CLEVER!

Most EU is trash.
