they're really just using up inventory

It's all new stuff. The SRBs (the only rocket NASA ever bought that killed a crew) is similar to what the shuttle used but longer. The rocket body is built using Shuttle external tank tooling but it's new build. Basically it won't do anything the Saturn 5 didn't do. 50 years after the Wright Brothers flew we were building supersonic jets. NASA is living in the past. Sigh.
And yes, I'd love to see it lift off.
