They are in Wave 15 I believe.  I have that on order from Newforce and they are blessedly packed two each in the case with 2 snowtroopers and six other single figures.  A great, great case. ;D

I really like the looks of that Luke figure and generally speaking, I don't like Luke very much. ;)

Nataku brings up an interesting point.  These could very easily just be the C1 ROTJ Luke and Vader.  That would make as much sense as repacking older figures, since the window of availability for both those figures seems kind of short.

In the retailer lists I've seen with this Luke & Vader, they're collection 2.  It would be odd if they released a figure or two in both collections.

EDIT:  found an EE case listing with these figures.  It's a Collection 2 case: http://www.entertainmentearth.com/prodinfo.asp?number=HS84861P

So will they be on C2 cards?  If so, that makes them a bit of a pain for the variant, every card type of collector.  Will the C2 Luke and Vader then sell for more?  Or will they just list them as C2?

Hey, wait a second, do they even designate C1 and C2 on cards anymore?  Doesn't look like it.  

Still, won't find me dissappointed to have another Luke and Vader.  At least they work as trade bait.

Yeah, I don't think there's any real siginificant difference between the C1 and C2 cards.  You'd think if this was the case, moving the ROTJ Luke and Vader, they'd move the Snowtrooper too.

Well,

Apparently, my theory on the collection 1 to 2 swap was bass-ackwards wrong!  :'(

The new EE catalog is shipping with pictures, and it appears the pictures they are using for Luke and Vader are the T-16 CommTech Luke (w/ New Lightsaber) and the MotDS Vader.

So, I thought what I thought and argued for it until I saw proof otherwise, and this would appear to be the proof I sought.

So, for now, I guess they are scheduled to be boring re-pack figures... CommTech Luke and MotDS Vader.

(See Boba Binks thread on the new EE catalog for more info):

Galactic Hunter is reporting that there will be an ANH Luke and Vader released using the Commtech Tattoine Luke, and the MOTDS Vader. Bravo Hasbro. I think its good to keep a Luke and Vader on the pegs for kids to pick up, and these are nice versions of both.

The ANH versions of Luke/Vader are definately the MOTDS Vader and the Luke that came with the little T-16.

I think that the repack of the MOTDS Vader was a good decision, as the figure wasn't widely available and is considered to be one of the best Vader sculpts.

However, I question their intentions of repacking the T-16 Luke.  We just got a Tatooine Luke with the Landspeeder.  Do we really need another right now?  And if so, why this version?  Why not release a Luke with articulated elbows AND knees, and pack in a pancho?

On an unrelated note, them rereleasing the Kamino Escape Jango Fett is simply ridiculous.

Here is a picture courtesy of SnTrooper at RS of what the new ANH Luke and Vader figures will be:



As you can see, clearly the T-16 Luke with a new lightsaber, and the MOTDS Vader.
