If the past is an indication of anniversary sets I doubt we will get anything SA or VOTC/VTSC style.  These set are usually robbed of articulation.  Most likely they involve a small stand or diorama of some sort (AKA cardboard cut out).
You are never alone when there's a clone.

Exactly.  I was talking about Anniversary BPs and 2-packs not regular BP.  Lets focus a bit more when we read ::)

Dont forget the Demise of Boba Fett so I would not expect any other than Luke figures from that pack in this one. My picks:

Luke Jedi with Hand burn deco
Gammorean Guard or Pote Snitkin
Sgt. Doallyn
Slave Leai
Mr. Crumb
R2 D2

Battlepacks are, to me, a great way for new collectors to get a whole scene at once but does nothing for me since I have all of those figures anyway.  I'd like to write a big ol' PASS on this BP, but objectively I think this'll be great for new collectors.

I agree.   The problem I have is Hasbro's tendency to resculpt or add one new (figure or accessory) to these.   They did the same thing with Cinema Scenes and other multipacks since then.  I think ruiner nailed it on the head with the link to Hasbro's pics.  To get me to buy this, I would need either a repaint (blond Wequay) or resculpt any of Jabba's Skiff Guards (from the Cinema Scene) with knee and elbow articulation.  Or... for that matter, Lando skiff guard with articulation. 

The RS rumor said,
Quote
Not unlike the previous Battle Packs, the 2007 assortments will feature four figures and a few small related accessories, and will utilize retools, repaints, and maybe even a new sculpt or two.
Wequay could definitely use an all new sculpt.  Make him articulated and I would get this set.  Then they could reuse the sculpt to make a carded figure and even a deluxe/utra figure of Ak-rev with his drums.

Yeah, but to get one worth having, would take something bigger than an accessory in  a BP.   Maybe it would work, but I would think with the mouth coming out and tentacles, it would need to come in a bigger package.    I would be glad to provide my own sand, though.
