The way the custom of the Talon Fighter pilot is done, he looks like just one of the Palace guards, but a pilot version.
I wouldn't mind picking up a few of those at all. It's great to hear TG say there are plans for these type of figures.
I remember someone in the fan art section even making a character from one of the arms seen on the Grayskull dungeon sticker. I wouldn't mind seeing all of this come to life.
To those who are worried about main characters not coming...all the A listers can't all be given to us up front. They have to be spaced out. I personally have no issue with getting a few obscure characters every now and again.
P.S. I am seriously anxious about getting Frosta, Fisto and Ninjor for myself, so this is coming from someone who is waiting on some of their favorites too. It will all come in time.
