PLUS, the company has said they will run a poll on their site so that fans can vote which character from the Expanded Universe they'd like to see made.

If the vid games are considered EU, I'd like to see a character from from Knights of the Old Republic I and II. Malak, Juhani, Bastilla, Visas, etc.:rock

I just hope that the EU characters are not made into 1/4 pieces. There's NO WAY I would buy one of those. No matter how much peer pressure there is. :poke

I believe the EU is only being considered for the 12" line which will be deeper and broader than any line Sideshow has ever done before.

The books, comics, video games, cartoons are all considered EU.

Oh yeah, they could literally make hundreds of different characters!

What is really worrying me, as happy as i am to see the 12" SW line, is that it will be the nail in the coffin to all other 12" lines. Buffy, POTA, Bond, Universal Monsters, Newline Monsters, Military Figures: ONLY 1 announcement in all these lines made at SDCC (Drusilla). All of these lines seem to be over or that their future is "foggy". It is very upsetting IMO. And with the amount of characters fans will want from the SW line, who will be left to work on all these other lines that alot of us are collecting??? Just a thought.

A word of encouragement Gil -

Don't take the lack of announcements/debuts at SDCC as a bad sign necessarily... There are still plenty of figures in the lineup for many of our current licenses, such as the ones you mentioned. Sideshow's marketing plan has varied a bit since last years show, the display is a bit more low-key intentionally... There will be more announcements in the coming months.

Aayla Secura began her life as an EU character, so why not her? :p :D

As they brought Quilan Vos out of the shadows for ROTS, I would like to see that one.

I have a very strong feeling that the most requested EU character that will win the vote will be Mara Jade.
So you better start getting prepared to sculpt another red head Andy! :p
By the way, will this be based on a realistic portrayal based on the EU artwork, or will a specific person or a parts of specific people be used as reference to make the portrait?

Brant said the poll should be up around the end of this month or early August.

From the Prequels and Expanded Universe- Mace Windu, Quin Lon Vos, the Tusken Jedi A'Sharad, Cin Drallig, and Serra Hetto.

Xizor could be cool. Definately Thrawn though.

How about some pics or links of Expanded U. characters for those of us unfamiliar with them?

Dave, here's the first fan pic of Thrawn that came up on Google:

http://img225.imageshack.us/img225/372/thrawn5yl.jpg

Some people originally thought that he could be seen on the bridge with Vader/Palpatine/Tarkin at the end of Ep. III, but I think that rumor was dispelled. He's basically a blue-skinned Imperial Admiral with red eyes.

He's from the Zahn Ep. VII-IX book trilogy that I read a long time ago (about 15 years or so). The books were very good, but they are in large part contradicted by the PT. They are also the books that originally introduced Coruscant, which Lucas obviously borrowed for the PT.

Thanks elwood - also found this list at Wikipedia, some pics there.

Wikipedia - Expanded Universe (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Expanded_Universe_(Star_Wars)#Characters)

I have to say I'm more interested in the most minor film character before any of these - but I'm sure there are some fans out there.

Nice find el. Also, only the name "Coruscant" was taken from the books, as the city was originaly part of the first rough draft of SW, and first used in the ROTJ SE. :)
Personally, the only EU character I want to see is Aayla Secura, and only in 1/4 PF statue form.

I think this extended universe idea is a poor one.I'd much rather see minor film characters being realized,Snagletooth,Dr.Evezan,Hammerhead,etc.
