Expanded Universe Comic 2-Packs - News & Images
« Reply #1 on: March 15, 2010, 01:34:10 PM »

It's right about now that the last offerings of the Expanded Universe comic 2-packs are coming to market.  The 2 WalMart exclusives have been sighted and online retail has picked up the third set which WalMart passed on due to a content issue.  

___  Star Wars: Tales #4 - IG-97 & Rom Mohc WALMART EXCLUSIVE
___  Star Wars:  X-Wing Rogue Leader #2 - Storm Commando & General Weir WALMART EXCLUSIVE
___  Star Wars: X-Wing Rogue Squadron #1 - Dllr Nep & Plour Ilo ONLINE  EXCLUSIVE





Additionally, the final wave of mainline comic 2-packs should be hitting later this month, but more likely in April.  Those include:  

___  #9 - REPUBLIC #83 Bogey Squad Clone Commander & Clone Trooper
___  #10 - ROUTINE VALOR Clone Lieutenant & Clone Trooper
___  #11 - Tales Of The Jedi #6 - Exar Kun & Ulic Qel-Droma
___  #12 - REPUBLIC #65 - Tholme & T'ra Saa
___  #13 - MARVEL Star Wars:  Early Adventures #3 Stormtrooper, Blackhole hologram & Security droid


Last but certainly not least, there are still a couple of exclusive comic 2-packs that are coming out for this year's summer convention season.  Those include:

___  Visionaries - Cyborg Darth Maul & Owen Lars SDCC '10 EXCLUSIVE
___  STAR WARS: EMPIRE #8 - Camie & Fixer CELEBRATION 5 EXCLUSIVE


Obviously there's a lot of disappointment amongst fans of the EU that this line has gone on hiatus.  The sad truth is that sales were not that strong and the collector base has weakened.  And we got a glimpse of what may have been on the way at Comic Con in several comic 2-packs that were shown but ultimately cancelled.  Those included:

___  Knights Of The Old Republic #6 - Jarael & Rohlan Dyre
___  Legacy # 7 - Deliah Blue & Darth Nihl

And there was another pack that was seen on some unreleased cardback artwork, too.  That release was slated as:

___  HEIR TO THE EMPIRE #tbd - Noghri Warrior & Ralrracheen


And now Rebelscum has posted THIS RUMOR REPORT pertaining to some PLAY.COM (UK) listings.  And guess what those sets were slated to feature:

___  Baron Fel & Ysanne Isard
___  Jaster Mareel & Montross
___  Luke Skywalker & Han Solo

It really is interesting to wonder about what might have been...
