Are these just the same damn ships that have been released over and over and over, or are there actually new molds?

I haven't been able to confirm either way. I don't know just yet.

I didn't mean to come off confrontational. I just tend to roll my eyes at Hasbro when at least half of everything that the put out for Star Wars these days is just rerelease in packaging meant to pander to people's memories of their childhood.

Nah, you didn't sound confrontational. You sounded concerned. I'm also getting tired of perpetually rehashed molds just so Hasbro can save a few tooling bucks and maximize the earnings of their shareholders.
I kind of look at it like this--even though Hasbro may release the same figures and ships over and over again, each time is always going to be someone's first time getting them, and I think that's why they re-release so much stuff.
