I was actually happy when Hasbro went to straight re-packs on Battle Packs. I hated buying BPs for 1 new figure/character, especially when the rest didn't include army builders. The first Ilum Padme set, for example. Yes, it came with a new droid sculpt, but it also came with a C-3PO and R2 I had no use for.
I don't mind that the BPs are not for "us," the collectors, and I really can't understand why people got so pissed every time a new BP was announced and there was nothing new in it. It's like some people wanted to have to spend $20+ on a set just for that one new figure. Did everyone forget that quick that they used to bitch about the 1 new figure in a 5 pack that they "had to buy" only to be "stuck" with extra stuff they didn't want?
The BP sets make decent gifts, mostly, because they're usually main characters or, in the case of Clone Wars, quite often have some army builder draw to them. But if it weren't for that, I wouldn't mind seeing Hasbro dump that assortment and diversify the Class I Fleet Vehicle line. IMO, that's still their best assortment outside of the basic action figures, they're excellent toys and that's something that the SW line lacks sometimes.
Specifically with these two Battle Packs; I don't know what Hasbro's game is. They have about 4 each (or more) of Obi/Qui/Maul figures available right now at multiple price points using multiple sculpts, mostly old. I see no reason why they're doing this BP of them rather than carding them, except that it gives them time to make more money from the existing tooling before moving on later in the year.
The Bespin set doesn't make much more sense to me either because we're getting a new ANH Vader, were shown an ROTJ Vader that'll be in the SDCC set and then retail and then an ESB version in the BP. We have an excellent VC Bespin Luke that just came out, their second "vintage" stab at him already, and Fett? I need another attempt at Fett like I need someone to come and kick me in the head.
I've been on the hunt lately to pare my collection down to the definitive version of each main Saga character and I think part of my hate on these packs is that there will be something that will be JUST a little better than what I have already and I'll feel compelled to buy these. Everytime this happens I buy a little more into the conspiracy theories about Hasbro making figures not quite as good as they can just so they can do another version and make us buy.
