Glad to see that they're pairing up these REBELS characters with Stormtroopers.  It makes troop building a little more organic.  And the cost of the 2-packs will present a little bit of value, too.

Nice to see the Rebel ladies in figure form finally.  Like others have said, all the main characters + Stormtrooper 2-packs should help kids mass up a pretty nice Stormie army. :P

Agreed, Sabine in particular looks awesome. (Bo Katan custom waiting to happen)

I believe the Hera 2-pack is a brand new reveal, although it was known we would be getting her at some point.

Where were the Chultro Vizago/IG-RM and WulffWarrd/Kitwarr 2-packs though?

They always save a bunch of stuff to freshen up the booth after the Friday panel/presentation.  Wouldn't surprise me if they pop up then...

So what is with the vintage style reissue of Bossk and IG-88?

I thought they were just more 5POA figures, not really more vintage than any of the other 5POA figures coming.  I think IG-88 even has a removable bandolier possibly?  I couldn't tell by the pics really, but it looks like maybe it is.

According to JTA's Q&A, the rumored Mission Series 2-pack with Ahsoka and Anakin has been cancelled.  :(

This had the potential to be pretty cool, little disappointed on this...

I have to say some of these packs shown at SDCC look pretty nice.  I don't know why, but I'm really digging the Wicket/Scout Trooper pack - nice sculpt on the ewok.  The Bossk/IG-88 pack is appealing in the vintagey sort of way as well.  I still haven't decided what I'm going to do with the Rebels stuff, but in a way it looks like it is shaping up to be kind of a fun line.  I remember thinking the same way about the CW stuff, especially in the first couple years, there was really a nice variety of characters, plus, vehicles and mini vehicles and all of that.  For kiddos jumping into the toys alongside the show, it could really be fun.  I have a feeling I'll be checking them out as well, particularly at the more affordable prices.

I agree 100%. Outside the deluxe 6 inch this was the highlight for me. I'm a fan of these and I get why people aren't but combining the vintage aesthetic with the outstanding sculpting and not to mention the price... I love it.  I'm glad to see some of these characters again.  I know I've bought them time and again but these are hallmark pieces (Wicket especially) and it's likely we will not be this way again with these characters. Starting next year it will be an unyielding avalanche of new.  Bring it on. But let's enjoy the OT one last time before.
