Some have suggested that the "All-Star" details hint at an All-Star Weekend re-release this year, but the same details were featured on the original shoe, as seen below.
That isn't to say that the "81 Points" Kobe 1 won't be retroed, just that these particular details shouldn't used as reasoning to assume a release is imminent. Yellowing on the heel and laces on the pair pictured here indicates that it's from the original bunch made for Bryant.
It's safe to assume Kobe retros won't be too far down the line. In fact, his "All-Star" Zoom Huarache 2K4 just hit retail. Expect more news on that front as Bryant's career continues to wind down.
