Given what we've seen of the packs, I'm gonna guess Mara is at least partially new...  I was hoping for a bit of a more interesting looking Luke though.  If it's that Luke in his (basically) Jedi outfit...  meh.  Mara's hopefully gonna be cool though.  Been neat to get a Vornskyr too but I'm being greedy.

Comic sets (the Dark Horse ones anyway) are shaping up to be incredible.  I'm handing the comics off to the kids too, and they're usually pretty happy to get them and it gets them reading something...

Maybe to keep the psychodelic theme, it'll be Saga Jedi Luke with VTSC Greedo Vest  ;D

I really like the look of that R2, reminds me of the Droids one.

What sculpt is that R2?  Might have to grab him to go in the astro droid collection, as it's different enough and could pass as another droid.

Looks like G9. I don't see a sensorscope or whatever it's called.
I really like that Obi set. These are supposed to hit soon right?

I had planned on buying the Luke/R2 set anyway, but that picture clinches it based on the R2.  It looks great and like Dan and others, I see Droids written all over it, even if it shouldn't be.

If it's the same sculpt as the one in the catalog photo, it's the VOTC sculpt:



Wouldn't surprise me if it was the R4-G9 sculpt, though--that'd be twice now that they've done an Artoo in that sculpt, but then ruined it with a goofy-ass paintjob.

Both of these are awesome (Obi/Alpha probably the best of the lot) but R2 really put me over.  I was planning on avoiding the Han/Luke Troopers because of the goofiness but he's great, so I'll leave him the way he is (he can be another R2 unit) and paint those troopers up.

I think I'm the only one interested in the Marvel sets but not the Dark Horse ones.  I loved those comics when I was in school - I even had all of the comics pinned up in my room covering the walls.  I should ask my parents to look through the old photo albums and see if they have a pic of my display.  :D

I'm frankly amazed that there are no plans to repack asajj and durge with their first appearance issue.

but yeah I've seen amazing customs of Quinlan for the last five years, so theres no way hasbro even had a chance on this. the obi-wan/alpha is the best.

but where are the pics of the Luke/Mara one?> on another note do we have any clue which issue they'll be attached to, because i would really hate to see an "action packed" two-pack of "union".

i would hate to hear about Jesse's kids reading between those lines. lol
