At Comic-Con International: San Diego today, Hasbro did its Star Wars presentation, announcing the line for the rest of this year -- with a few sneak previews from next year. The slideshow -- which can be seen in its entirety on the official Star Wars site here -- contained a surprise for me: early 2010 will see a Comic Pack featuring Jarael and Rohlan Dyre figures, along with (evidently from the image) a reprint of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic #6!
Not being at the con -- or keeping extensive tabs on the entirety of the Star Wars licensing universe -- I was initially puzzled when reader Austin Conway dropped me a line about the figures earlier today. But there they are, right near the end of the slideshow. There doesn't appear to be anything saying that they're exclusives for any one retailer -- but I'm just going from the slides, and that information may not have been included. So I think you'll need to check closer to the date. That's Legacy #7 on the left
This is a first for this series -- and a nice first for Rohlan, who missed the cut for the KOTOR miniatures set in 2008. This is one of my favorite issues and covers, as well. Buy two -- one for the collection, and one for the desktop!
