Wow! I really like the design. Being a MOMC collector (for the most part), I like the fact that there are no funny angles on the sides of these cards, like the ROTS figures have. The Sandtrooper looks so sweet! Pics are on the Hasbro presentation slideshow on GH.

It's not bad. I liked the OTC packaging better, because it was more "retro" and nostalgic. But at least their starting to produce NEW OT figures again. And this is certainly better than any of the crap packaging produced before the OTC hit.

I like that they went back to the OTC style. The card is just a funny shape, hopefully we will not need another Star Case for this one.

Yeah, I hope you're right about the Star Cases. What, that would be Star Case version 4, right? http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

Yeah, I'm hoping that they will just fit in the Star Case 3 and not have to worry about it.

Spiffy design and nice to see they merged to OTC cards with the ROTS blister and reshaped card layout. I can't wait to get ahold of these.

They look sweet. I'm an opener, but I've got to get something special just to have one MOC.

Like every other packaging design from the past, they'll look just fine when I rip them open and free my figures.

Yeah, it looks like we may actually find mint cards again now that the Vader corners are not there to get bent and split.

I am also in favor of them going back to the OTC style cards. I thought it was a great look. The first time I saw them I thought that the style was something that they should stick with for a while. Of course, something new and more "eye-catching" had to be thrown out there for the new movie, but I'm really glad this is the style of card they decided to unite the entire line with. A great call, for once.

They look good! Strange at first but they'll grow on us over time, not bad for the first truely unified line!

I really like the look just wish the bubbles were heat sealed instead of taped on the back like ROTS.Or maybe they can do a better tape job,some ROTS figs have awful taping.Hope to see Qui-Gon,Darth Maul and other good prequel figures on these cards as well.

I also dug the OTC packaging. It was nice, and simple, with a slight twist. also easier to keep protected....

Hey GNT. There's an existing thread on pretty much the same topic. You can lock this one if you want.

So not to lose the discusion that was posted in the other thread I'll merge it in here the old fashioned way, even worse since the codes aren't working at the moment but it'll do for now :) :p

At first when I saw this I was a little skeptical. These cardbacks have the OTC style to them - the bubble. The cards look great but the bubbles are too bubbly like the ROTS bubbles. At least they diddnt go with red or some other crazy color.

This has got to drive carded collector nuts though because now new starcases are needed again!

O man I never thought of that aspect, I have time to decide how im going with this line, MOC or loose.

Here is what the new bubble looks like from Galatic Hunter's Web site on the HB power point presentation given at SDCC.

Thats true about the storage capabilities but I think hasbro is doing a good job making the cards more appealing than the ugly AOTC and orginal saga packages.

I liked OTC cards better, lets go back to those please! Although I will wait to pass judgement till I see them in the store.

All the Saga cards were pretty neat, they were the start of the modern day version of the vintage cards with the border and logo. I must say it's getting better every time, these will grow on us!

I like how each card has the episode # and name of film too. Id collect them just for the cards.

I love it. It's a great mix of the OTC and ROTS cards. It seems to bridge the best features of both designs. These turned out fantastic.

I really like the new package design! Though these shapes make digging through the pegs at the store difficult, without knocking them all over the place that is.

I really hope that the Canadian tri-lingual packages look as good. The ROTS ones all had the same generic back picture.

From what I've seen, it's rounding up to be the best packaging ever without a doubt!

I like these better now that we see the figures carded. I just hope they dont use tape to secure the bubbles to the cards. This just makes it too easy for scammers on Ebay. Use glue hasbro, please. I just hope there is a Yoda in this cardback. I doubt it though.

I really like the packaging. Not sure if it's because it truly is cool or if I'm just tired of seeing ROTS packaging. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smirk.gif Anyway, my initial thought was SWEET! Not too crazy about the pack-in. I hope those pack-ins are secured pretty well... if not, there might be a problem with them being removed while still on the pegs. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/mad.gif

Yoda4501
10-06-2005, 09:11 PM
Judging by the way they package some of the ROTS figures, I think they will be secured. Some people had figures loosse limbs while removing them from the plastic packaging.

JediSooner
10-06-2005, 09:18 PM
Looks to me like the pack-in is just lying in a tray behind a thin piece of plastic. Being a MOMC collector, I just hope I don't have to worry about missing pack-ins instead of bent cards. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/crazy.gif
