From that picture the Fleet Troopers at least have new heads...

They appear to have a different headsculpt and they have the SAGA Antilles helmet. It's an improvement for sure, but they still suck. ;)

I wonder if the Stormtroopers don't also have new helmets, that may even be removable.  They look a little bigger than the VOTC version, to me--one of the few things that could be improved on that figure, in my opinion.

It's hard to say. That new basic stormtrooper supposedly has a removable helmet as well, so I guess it could be packed in this battlepack, like the Airborne clone in the Mace pack.

I made up a really quick/crappy comparison shot in photshop with the VOTC trooper. Obviously the quality of that little image kind of sucks and the pose isn't quite the same, so it is a little hard to be certain, but they look almost identical to me.

I will probably buy this battle pack if the Storm Troopers are the Vintage OTC versions. I can always use more StormTroopers, and my Rebel army needs a few soldiers.

This is one of my favorite battle packs. And I actually kinda like this Rebel Trooper. *awaits comments on my intellect level* The sculpt is pretty good and since I am used to the angle cut articulation, I collect 21st Century Toys, it doesn't bother me.
The Force is strong in this one,... too bad his action figure sucks.

The VOTC Stormies are worth it.

In a lot of ways, yeah. If the packs cost $20, that's $10 a piece, original price.

This looks like one I'll buy.  Maybe even multiples, as they are army builders and I think this one will look pretty spiffy boxed.

I like this battle pack.  I don't know if I'll get it, but you get 4 troop builders.  Not bad IMO.

If those really are VOTC Stormies and partially-new Rebels, I'll get at least one.

Notice the black cut on the upper left hand corner on all of these photos?  I'm interested as to how the packaged sample will look.

That revised VOTC stormtrooper is 3 3/4 perfection.

A must buy for the stormies alone.  Hell, even the RFT's aren't that bad.

I will buy it, only if the Stormies on the photo are in it. NOTE that the same website, they show bur pics of the Sith Attack, Carkoon, and Chancellor sets, and the Sith Attack changed.
