    Right on, Jedi Academy+I, Jedi are in my top two favorites series! :)

    They gave us Kyp, Cilghal, Exar Kun, and all sorts of good stuff. :D

    I saw it 5 times when I was 11, read the book (which I still have with the pictures in it) and was hooked....no turning back then.

    I liked Kyp so much in the Jedi Academy trilogy. His story was pretty good in the NJO as well. I wish he had his own trilogy in the post FOTJ timeline

    Ha ha lol . Yeah. Though I wish we could flesh out the post NJO-pre DNT era. Seeing Kyp running around then would be amazing

    Running around having adventures is what I meant. Where do I go to vote for the Art contest to get more Kyp art?

    I loved NJO Kyp, but first became a fan with the JAT.

    Who else has his Micro Machines figure?

    And to think, NJO Kyp nearly didn't happen thanks to Del Rey almost overlooking Bantam continuity.

    Yes, I am glad they decided to make the renegade master good old Kyp. I think it added a great deal to his character.

    Wasn't he supposed to be some character called the Wizard or something?

    What I read somewhere was that he basically was planned to be what he ended up being in the series, a Jedi Master at odds with Luke Skywalker's approach to the war. Just initially Del Rey was going to make the character an original one until they decided to go with Kyp.

    But maybe thats not right. If someone knows the full story I would love to hear it.

    Seeing as how there is going to be a Jaina trilogy now, I'd really like for the other notable Jedi to be featured. I think a Kyp Durron trilogy would be fantastic.
