Looks like we finally have an answer here... Visionaries Maul and a new "old" Uncle Owen.  Looked like he re-uses the AotC Owen sculpt with a new head and a new paint job.

Pics PLEASE! Or at least a link. Many people are talking about all this new stuff, but I don't see pics or links. I can't seem to find it on the homepage...

It's a decent looking set, but I think the story is ridiculous, so I'll pass and wait for the "true" OT Owen and Beru.

I've been waiting for this Maul for a long time, so I'll get one of these packs.  :)

I am very happy to see a 100% new Old Owen. I will be buying several of this pack to make some Mos Eisly losers for my custom Cantina. Same goes for the Cammie Pack, I like the generic characters.

The Maul is an interesting version so all around this is a great pack. Hopefully it will not rum more than $15.

I'm definitely getting this set. And I'm interested as to what Hasbro's gonna do w/ the packaging.

Sweet!  Never read the comic, but looking forward to the new cyborg Maul.   :)

Glad to see some pics in some of these threads as well.   :-*

I'm down for one or two of this sets. Thanks for posting the pics.

I still haven't seen the complete Hasbro slide presentation yet.

I am just a lil bit scared of the "Very Limited" quantities Hasbro is emphasing on both of the slides for the exclusive comic packs.  I really would like to get both packs - but I am affraid this is gonna turn into some crazy hunt...

The limited quantities statement is no doubt a response to overstock that Hasbro has wound up with following some recent cons.  They wound up having the Holographic Emporer with Vader long after the 2008 Comic Con.  And there were plenty of TFU Stormtrooper Commanders left following last year's Comic Con.  It seems that Hasbro is trying to avoid that kind of situation going forward.

Yeah, they basically said there would be enough for most folks to get them, but not enough for a clearance blow-out 3 months after the fact.  Should still be easy to get, but don't count on buying they for $5 in December or anything like that.


Hopefully it will not rum more than $15.

Uh... don't hold your breath.   :-X

I like the 2 pack quite a bit.  It's too bad it will most likely be at least $30 given the exclusive nature of it.  Maul looks good in the photo.  It's kind of hard to see Owen's headsculpt but the rest looks good to me.  It will definately be better than that piece of crap cinema scene version.  LOL!

This set, I just don't know how to feel...

I like seeing an older Owen figure that doesn't look like ****, but that Cyborg Maul's probably one of the lamest things.  I get the media it's from, the concept, but I guess I just feel like it's a wasted figure slot.

That said, I'll wait to see what the price will ultimately be...  Can I justify a lot plunked down for an older Obi and a Maul I really am going to cringe at putting on my shelf?  Eh, we'll see I guess.

So that Owen isn't meant to be an OT figure?  Is that right?
