Need to take some pics of mine. Mostly Sith Lords in my set and various different Clone Troopers
It's not a line of toys, it's just a few figures scattered throughout the current Vintage line (new figures on vintage '78-'85-style cards)

In addition to Shae Vizla and Jace Malcom that you linked, they also made Darth Malgus. I have to expect we'll get Satele Shan as well, and HOPEFULLY T7-O1, Ven Zallow and Nico Okarr, too (to round out some of the major classes and stars of the trailers). That would only leave the Agent unaccounted for, but they could maybe skirt the rules and give us Eleena Daru, she's rather Agent-y (closer to Smuggler, tho, really). Some of the Companions in their default looks would be nice, too.

The downside is they're gonna be released sporadically, no dedicated wave of figures like TFU had a few years back. Vizla and Jace may be out in the same wave, I'm not sure.

Im also hoping for some Comp figures, aswel as Generic Player characters, although that seems unlikely

Don't know about Kenner or Hasbro, but Lego has 2 SWTOR sets announced for August. A Sith Fury that includes Darth Malgus and 2 Sith Troopers and an Imperial astromech droid minifigs, and a Republic Striker, with Satelle Shan a Republic Trooper and an astromech

I've been hoping for generic player figures for years now, since KOTOR. On toy forums, we came up with some nice ideas for getting our Revans and Exiles. The biggest challenge was all the different heads and hands to cover the various skintones and game portraits (since even in the 'what if' threads discussing it, people were whining about their own version of Revan/Exile not being represented).... one idea I recall was having a couple 3-packs: Scout, Soldier, and Scoundrel for one (one set male, one set female), then Guardian, Consular, and Sentinel for another, in different robe colors (I really wanted one to be the blue robes you get on Dantooine while looking for the Starmap). Each set would've had some unique saber hilt but multiples, with the blades in every color the game offered, and a double-bladed saber maybe in yellow, blue, purple, and green.

The Evolutions format Hasbro had for some characters/themes would've worked, since you'd basically get 3 full figures and accessories, but Hasbro was stingy with the accessories and often the articulation as well in those sets, so they wouldn't go for all the extra hands, sabers, heads. Plus it's an awful lot to devote to essentially ONE character from a game (8 sets/2 characters if they made an Exile one). If they did a special KOTOR re-release maybe when the first TOR expansion hits, maybe Hasbro could do that. They'd only need to do male sets for Revan and female for Meetra, after all, and perhaps cut down on the accessories some (but 3 different portraits would be nice in each, so you could swap 'em all out to make 'your' Revan/Meetra, sorta, and the rest would be like NPC figures)

But companions? I'd absolutely love to see them from TOR AND more from KOTOR 1&2.

I just want the ships - Whether full (figure scale) sized or the smaller Micro Machine Action Fleet series that came out about 15 years ago... (holy hell, has it been that long?... quick scan of the internet... 1995)

Or even the mini Titanium line.

I don't need any character figures... ok maybe the droids.

I know of at least 1 modeler that is working on a 1/72 scale version of the Smugglers XS freighter, designed to sit next to the fantastic fine molds Milenium Falcon.

I thought I read somewhere that we'll be able to make our characters into action figures. No joke.
