I'd pick up 1 or 2 depending on cost and availability... They seemed like a plentiful beast on Tatooine so they'd be great for any Tat. diorama I believe.
A packaging change wouldn't bother me at all since I open them, but I could see carded/boxed guys going nuts over that.
I'd prefer just a basic re-release of it myself, except the packaging change... No new figures. Just the original QGJ.
