Looks like the first official pic of the baby Luke... but it still is unpainted and the version of Obi Wan is that of the pilot.




Lil' Lukey looks like an eggroll from my local chinese takeout place.  :P

I might pick up Bail and Lil' Leia since I just found Pilot Obi and don't have a Bail yet.

Why? Just buy a Bail and an Eggroll. It'd be cheaper... Albeit a little greasyer, but cheaper.

I wish they could just give us a cloth robe for Obi-Wan, since he had his hood up in that scene...and his arm in his sleeve.

Yep.  I think it looks pretty good for what it is supposed to depict.  I to wanted his robe up.  But it is still ok.

That date had to be wrong. We haven't seen any pictures other than the one prototype image. SWS has been wrong about dates before though.

Nice transitional cardbacks. I think these will be great left on the card.

Too bad that the figures don't even appear to be repainted in any way, and  the babies look to share the same sculpt. Hopefully the price will not be any different than a regular figure, because paying a premium for a plastic baby isn't very cool, especially for card/loose people.

Those cardbacks look VERY nice, I may have to pick up a set to keep carded.

I'm kind of glad the figures are repacks. I haven't gotten a Bail yet (waiting for clearance), and it's always nice to have a Pilot Obi-Wan. However, the painting on the babies is terrible! Did they even paint the heads?

Leia's hair is painted but they really skimped on the painting on these. I'll pick these up for sure if they are at the basic pricepoint, maybe even a little higher. I'm not paying more than $8 for them though, a little baby like that does warrant a big change in price, ther is more plastic in that AT-RT driver gun than one of those babies.

UGLY! The figures I don't need as I have em and the babies are UGLY. I have to also disagree that I do not like the card. These are very easy to pass on.

I'm glad these are not even repaints, so there's no debate on opening them. I will be curious to see the price point though. WM is decent with their exclusives, but I will laugh if they try to push them at $9.99 or something and even try to justify it as a necsessary charge.
