Are these re-releases of older figs?

Looks like it.

Yes, re-releases in every case except the promotional "Unreleased" Pygmy. These were originally from the industry-changing Copplestone-sculpted 28mm Darkest Africa range.

But since when does a "Healer" carry a staff topped with a skull ??

Most if not all of the figures can already be bought from them (see the "Darkest Africa" section of their website), so it's not so much a case of re-releases as package deals.

As to the healer? Well… shows he knows his way around a body, I guess. Maybe it's the skull of the last patient who didn't follow his directions, as a warning?

I already have the promotional Pygmy so he can't be that "unreleased".

The pygmy spearmen were originally sold in a pack that included the chief and his wife. That's why I only bought one. If they're now available separately I might have to invest in a few more.

The archers with plumes are new… or at least conversions of old figures.

Great figures

It would be good if Foundry could provide spearmen, archers, and musketeers for all the tribes they produce. Many lists in Chris Peers' rule sets allow for varied armament within the same tribal army.
