Is the Luke/Deena (Stealth Armor) CP from this depiction?

The description definitely makes me think that's the source material for that set.

I'm digging it...  I too am bummed on Vos' lack of knees.  I said this before but didn't Hasbro claim the price hikes on the comic packs were going to deliver more articulation per figure, and that the old packs always lacked some important points on some figures as a cost-saver?  Where'd all that smoke blown up our asses drift off to?

Previews has a small pic of Wedge and Borsk, Ki and Sharad, and Luke and Deena. Love the latter, Ki, and especially Sharad look almost Marvel colored bright, and Borsk, well I need to see a bigger pic, but it isn't the best Bothan interpretation they could of used. Wedge looks pretty solid. Sorry can't scan, but pics will be everywhere soon I guess. :)

Yep, sure looks like it - from the gang at RS:

Funny, when I saw Ki-Adi Mundi I thought it was Scarecrow from Wizard of Oz. And the Luke/Shan set has an X-Men feel to it. :P

The luke in spy gear looks pretty kickass..but is that the wrong saber again? lawl

and is it just me or does wedge have the training gear clone legs :-\ the bothan looks wierd and the sand people beside looks crappy. Good thing I have decided to skip most comic packs this year. The luke/blonde chick set is a maybe all the others are a pass.

Hard to tell from that pic, but Luke's lightsaber looks correct, but until I see it in stores, I won't hold me breath. As for Wedge, I thought the same thing when looking at the legs, they sure look like the Training Clone sculpt

I like the Luke set.  Ki-Adi-Mundi is that you?  WTF?  That is a crazy outfit.  I will add Borsk just because I want a figure of him.  Wedge is what I thought it would be like. 

Did they really not add knee articulation to poor Vos?  I will probably still buy it because of the headsculpt and I'm a sucker for camo-troopers.  I haven't decided on Dark Empire yet.

Yeah, the Ki Adi Mundi is pretty wacky. Not too sure about the bottom row. My initial reaction is, ewww!

Ki Adi Mundi reminds me of one of the 70's McDonalds characters:



O.K. sets, I wish it was a pilot Biggs instead of a useless Academy outfit. The Bothan is really silly looking, I never got the appeal of Bothans. I like the Luke/deena set the best. This will be great for custom fodder......
I agree it does appear the Biggs has the Training Clone/Crimson empire legs.

Wedge is a huge letdown for some one who has long just wanted a good pilot Wedge.  The headsculpt doesn't look that great for headswaps, either.  All of them are kind of blah to me.   :(

I'm so freakin' army building that luke/deanna set, finally an actual rebel soldier, that actually looks like a soldier.  As much as I want RFT's, Hoth troops, Endor troops NEWLY sculpted with SA articulation, they've never struck a cord with me as being soldiers in an army in another galaxy that has had armor wearing troops for thousands of years.  At least these stealth outfits make sense in the SW universe.

wedge/feyla-those aren't clone legs those are SW Power Ranger legs  :P  Feyla looks like he's sporting Fisto's legs in a different color.  They look alright I'll get one and throw the Wedge head on the Pilot from the Evo Pack until H gives a Wedge pilot.

mundi/hett-Hett looks to be sporting the same arms, legs & skirt as his son.  Mundi looks to have his same legs as the original, intresting that he's sporting a purple blade must've borrowed Mace's.  Look's like the mask on Hett is removable too, way to big for a scuplted head.

faie/Vos-What the heck is up with no knees on Vos, and why if this is his Jedi outfit does he have a holster/blaster?  I wish H would throw some Fisto or Hett legs on him, despite inaccuracies and with the holster it's already inaccurate anyway so might as well go all the way and at least get some articulated knees out of it anyway, then have those unbending sticks.

clone/luke-looks like a flashback to Saga collection w/luke in that action pose and flowing cape still.  wish they'd have fixed that.  But it's still a buy.

Finally saw the Imperial Knights and Cade Skywalker with Darth Talon today.  Of course the Cade & Talon set DIDN'T have the lightsaber, so I passed.  And of course I'm continuing to pass on the Marvel sets.  They just don't cut it for me.
