Kinda disappointing (but not surprising) to see more re-paints and kit-bashes end up in the Comic Packs line.  :-\

Mouse/Able - no idea who these guys are, so I have no excitement for them.

RC/SBD - Repaints... but at least they are good army builders.   :)

Shan/Jundlan - Shan looks like a repaint of the Force Unleashed Officer and Luke looks like he's re-using parts from the recent DS/Imperial Officers as well.

JediDefender.com's coverage of San Diego Comic-Con is coming in, and some dandy shots of the Upcoming Comic 2-Packs are in our Hasbro Galleries.  I like Fel the most with the completely removable armor/helmet.  I'm digging Luke and Shan though as well and the removable Imperial Kepi's!  Yes, removable Impy hats for the first time.  I hope this is the first of many.  And I know a certain Chief Bast who's getting an extra Luke hat.  ;D

Some of the figures are a little lacking in articulation, but I'm still excited due to the price.  $10 lets some things slide I think.  Luke really should've been a better poseable figure though, so I am disappointed there for sure...  And I'm sick of the Dutch body at this point, it's too distinct.

I dig Mouse and Able but I agree Jeff that if you don't know who they are they're really off your radar.  They're Spec. Forces rebels if anyone's curious, who are in disguise...  At least that's what I recall of them.  I dig them but I liked their storyline so I dunno.  I just hope they get gloved hands and helmets.

That Mouse/Able pack is awesome, sign me up for several since you can put the helmets on and use them as generic Stormtroopers (other than the Nemoidian's hands). I dig the Imp. Officer pack as well but I wish they'd have put Luke's head on a different body since the Ozzel torso isn't that great. Why not do the same kitbash they did with the Briefing Room set? RC/SBD is rather meh but they used the best SBD mold so it's worth a purchase.

The more I see of Baron Fel the more I wan of him. The removable flight vest and helmet are fan-*******-tastic. I may have to go back and pick up some more Death Star gunners. Add those together and you have the easiest SA TIE pilot custom ever. :)

As a novel and comic reader, I'm happy with all of these.  Amazing to see some of these figs getting made - I would never have guessed mouse and able would make their way to plastic!

Rebel forces that don stromtrooper gear to infiltrate an Imp base.  I think this was from earlier issues of the Rebellion comic series that came out a year or two ago.

Very puzzling that Hasbro is identifying this trooper as Able.  It's not Able at all.  This is Able.  He's a Phase 1 Clone Trooper that is older and has joined the Rebellion.

The Rebel that is packaged with Mouse (A Duros, btw) is actually Basso.

Other than that weird canon inconsistency the lineup looks cool.  Luke as Lt. Jundland is cool, and I had heard that Hasbro was going to use the Juno Eclipse sculpt again in that set.  The result looks alright.  This two-pack is really crying out for Hasbro to make a Tank figure now.

The WalMart wave is cool for the most part.  They're presenting Obi-Wan and Bail Organa the way they should have been initially in the Basic Figure line with the softgoods.  The Commander Keller & Galactic Marine look awesome, too.  As for the Marvel set?  Eh.

The sets that are due out next month look really nice, and I've been wanting that Dark Woman/A'Sharad Hett set since I saw it at C4.

Overall, I like what Hasbro is doing with these but I am not looking forward to hunting down the three WM exclusives...I might as well ask DS for help right now.   :)

Has it been confirmed that the Crimson Empire set will remain unchanged when it is re-released later this year?

If so, I feel sorry for the folks who paid $20 for it the first time around. 

I'm still missing it so hopefully it is the same the second time around.

I'm loving the imperial sets. Both of the officers (the Girl and Luke) were shown with their hats off on the last day if the con.
