Great choice to release the Biker Scout without the Speeder Bike. I've seen lots of people who army build the 6 inch figures, and they only have one or two Bikers since you could only get it with the Speeder Bike (and the lowest price that set got around here was $20, and in limited quantities).

I've really wondered why it took so long for Hasbro to start rereleasing the 6 inch figures.

I would like to see confirmation which of these are different from the originals, and even if there are any subtle differences in the ones that are supposed to be straight repacks. Luke and Anakin both have the new face printing right? And I seem to recall Yoda was an upgrade somehow?

Mostly curious about Bossk and Boba and the Speeder scout I guess.

I don't think Brickseek works for these at Target.  >:( :(

I found these at Target this week (aside from Bossk). I wanted the Luke because of the face deco changes (although this is one I didn't think was too bad in the previous version), and ended up picking up another Boba Fett for sone reason. I already had one, but kinda wanted an extra for the desk. Originally thought about Bossk too, but didn't see him. IG-88 looked like the deco was different to me as well.

I decided to sell my originals of these characters and buy the Archive versions.  My set of 4 already arrived from Dorksidetoys yesterday.  I like the new paint apps better and I'm not so attached to the original releases that it was that big of a deal. 

I was kind of surprised by how quickly almost all of the originals sold, even though EVERYBODY seems to have known about the Archive releases.  Selling two of those more than covered the cost of the Archive wave.  And the only one I have left is Boba Fett, and it's kind of a surprise that he's the last man standing.
