This could be really good -or- an incredibly lame repack...  :-\

Since there were no pictures, I'll go with the glass half-empty crowd and assume they will be repack figures with new PVC babies.   :(

But do the twins really NEED to be articulated? I'd be cool with PVCs as long as they were in some soft goods blankets. And I hope that Obi-Wan has a soft goods robe too, since it will likely be a repack.

Sounds cool that there actually releasing the babies (no Birthing Padme with babies though?? ::)).

I'd think the figures will be some type of repack with little plastic babies, probably with molded blankets around em. Hell, I bet we probably won't even be able to tell the difference between the Luke and Leia, pack one molded baby into two different sets.

How about first wave Deluxe Leapfrog Obi-Wan? He already has softgoods.

No! Crappy figure!


But I certainly wouldn't be surprised if Hasbro chose to stick that version in this pack.

I think the babies will be little blobs of plastic, but that's OK as long Obi and Bail have articulated arms that can HOLD babies I'm happy.

Nah Hasbro will claim making molds for the babies is too expensive, so they'll just glue a saved Anakin head to an upper arm segment and call it a baby.

I kind of think this is an odd choice for a toyset/exclusive.

Well, if it is done well (e.g. new sculpts of Obi-Wan and Bail and not the #27 and #15 figures, respectively, that I'm expecting) and packaged nicely, I think it's a pretty good choice.  Sadly, neither Obi-Wan or Bail are selling all that well right now, so making it an exclusive instead of an open market item cuts down the pegwarming potential by at least 80 percent.

If you want to see odd, take a gander at the majority of those Pegwarmer Buyback Boxes, err...I mean, "Battle Packs."  If there is a better example of odd figure choices, I'd like to see it.   :D

It's Wal-Mart.  Their exclusives have to be odd now.

At least they probably won't be limited as some Target exclusives, and you won't have to get to the store one morning at a certain time or you'll miss out.

I like this exclusive idea better than Target Clones and Lava Vaders, since this one makes sense.

I'm sure that Obi and Bail will be repacks - look at the last 12 ROTS releases and list of exclusives.

Now the question remains, will the babies be new tools or will they be rehased from a Hasbro line (like Polly Pockets or something)?
