He's in the works.

I had no desire to get any of these packs until I saw Wave 2.  Holy crap!  I am all over the Obi/Alpha set and will definitely get the Villie/Vos set.  I was holding my breath to see the Vos sculpt and I have to say that they did a pretty good job.  I'll reserve final judgement until I see some close-ups, but he looks great so far.  Also, if they can do Alpha this good, it gives me hope that they will release a Fordo or an Ordo (from Republic Commandos Triple Zero) in the future that look this good.

Instead of a rehash how about a resculpt? K'Kruhk doesn't look like J'Quille plus he's taller than most.

Although the Obi-Wan pack looks good, I think it is a waste. Both of those figures could have been regular figure releases. I hope we get more obscure EU characters in coming waves.

But Obi-Wan and a Clone will sell to parents and kids. This line, like the regular line, has to appeal to everyone for it to be profitable and remain on the pegs.  I'm also convinced that they started with 100% repaints so that they could afford new sculpts down the line.

I also think the comic pack-in is a great idea, and one I've been thinking about for years.  It gives people a chance to get to know the charcters when the buy the figures.  Personally, I've never read a story about Vos, so my interest in him is low.  However, I buy all 100% new sculpts.  So the comic will possiblly get me into the character.  This format looks like it could have great potential.

Yeah, but they cost less than regular release figures. :D

Agreed.  At this price point (about $9.99 per set), the Comic 2-packs are a much better value than the basic figures, especially with those reportedly creeping up in price to well over $7 each.

I don't know where you guys are getting the 2-packs but everywhere around here has them for 11.99-12.99. Its the same as buying the figures individually. Still, regardless of the price i would prefer more obscure and true EU characters.

I've seen the following pricing on the comic 2-packs:

$9.96 - WalMart
$9.99 - Target
$10.99 - Toys R Us

All of those prices were at stores in your area, notably NY/NJ.

Still not a bad value when 2 basic figures are going to cost at minimum $13.
