I'm thinking of getting one of these, just wondering if one is better than the other, or is it a case of either one is fine, or both are must haves?

You want somebody to say just get both. I’ll be that somebody. Do it.

I would be interested to know if they got updated after the line6 amp's go removed from Reason.

I could be wrong, but some of them older refills used the old amp and as such some patches are broken, that's the main reason I have never got them as i don't know anyone who has them so it would be handy to actually know. ;)

The Soul School refills did use the Line6 amps, now they've been replaced by the Softube amps set to bypass. Which is a shame I suppose, but then I really only use these refills for the rex loops, which are excellent. Pretty sure the amps only appear in the "source songs" which I don't think I've ever used

So if you're after a bunch of really good funky rex loops, then yes definitely get Soul School 1 and 2 because you can never have enough really good funky rex loops.

Good to know - does the disco refill use them / did it get updated ?

None of the old(er) Propellerhead Refills got any update.
The behaviour with the replacement of the line 6 amps with the bypassed Softube ones is just the default Reason does after the originals got removed. Quite a few FX combinators from 3rd party Refills haven been broken badly from this bad migration move.
