Again, they'll sucker us with the packaging - it will be nicer than the figures.

But that's not saying much.

Doesn't sound too exciting, which is a good thing.

Heard it was Saga Bespin Luke & Vader. If that's the case PASS. I was hoping for something "goofy" like the X-mas figures.

I think that's what Yakface said if I'm not mistaken...  2 repacks and nothing much to care about.  Thank god...  Easy pass then.

Please don't hurt me, but I kinda like it... Sure the figure choices aren't too great and lack creativity, but for some reason I like it.

Yes, by all accounts it is the Saga-2004 Jabba's Palace Luke head...  kind of a nice change from yet another re-release of the open-mouthed head he had previously.

Hasbro is really gonna sucker everyone with this set, and they knew that, so therefore they decided why bother putting any effort into it! Even the packaging sucks.  :'(

And yet, Im probably gonna end up buying this, because I'm a sucker!  :(

It's a Wal-Mart exclusive.

From, http://jediinsider.com/index.php?catid=8&itemid=10257

JI: We are seeing some pre-orders for something called "I Am Your Fathers Day" 2-pack. What is this?

Hasbro: The "I am Yoru Father's Day" is indeed a real product, one both having some fun with Star Wars and one intended to take advantage of Father's Day gift-giving period. It is a product exclusive to Wal-Mart. It is intended to be a gift that kids can give their dads, and consists of a unique Father's Day card and two figures that of course emphasize a father/son connection. The idea is that you and dad can share the fun of Star Wars, with a figure for both you and your dad to to enjoy. The product has a new zip-strip that allows the card to be taken off cleanly and the package folded back on itself for a gift box. Since it is
a 100% kid-targeted product, and if we could have avoided creating a kit-bashed figure we would have, but the "anguished" face of the original Bespin Luke just didn't cut it for what we wanted to do with this set. (See image below
