So looking at this, it is the exact same number of pieces as the one that was already released. Only difference looks like the color. Is it just a repainted identical set with new figures?

A simple comparison of the two sets makes it obvious there's been a drastic redesign. For the better, too -- the original version was far from accurate.

It's weird that it is the exact same number of pieces. Guess I'll give it a shot if it is different though.

When LEGO revisits a set it hands the design over to someone who has never worked on that model before so that they bring a new take on the construction.

The number of landspeeder sets is a perfect indicator of the high staff turnover on the LSW team ;)

Anyone here with hands on experience with this new Kylo set?

I didn't see your question until now, but yes -- I've built the new set. It's vastly superior to the prior version.
