or they could have dropped those features all together and put the resources into better sculpt/accessories and/or cheaper fig. but to be honest i did like those fact files.

Save for the vintage cards, this is so true. PotF2 are the NeoVintage cards and I love 'em.

My fa cards are the rerelease cards that came out with a few classic figures back in 2000.
The new cards for the line that is coming out in conjunction with the DVD release of the original trilogy look alot like them too.

'The Original Trilogy Collection,' as the newest repacks are called, look pretty sweet. Very vintage looking with their silver lettering, borders, and colorful backgrounds. They're 3rd on my list for favorite card.

Yeh, I'll be very tempted to leave most of the figures in their new packaging.

i'll probably buy doubles of the "clamshell" packages so i can leave 1 in the package for display. those cards look really cool IMO. damn that hasbro.

I'll get all 12 but leave them in. I don't need any of those guys out, no matter how cool the figures themselves look. Same goes for the 12" guys. Well, I may get 2 Bobas and 2 Stormies since I'd love to pose them

Haha, that OTC Recard of that Vader won't be shipped to Australia at all. It's probably for the better since there won't be so many perwarmers there, huh?

I forgot to mention that. That is a load of crap. Hasbro is so annoying.

Well, I won't take that one out if I do decide to get the OTC guys (I'll get them once I find a spot to put them all together).

STOP TAUNTING ME!

Yeah, Saga looked good for the few first waves but now I hate it. I find it really annoying for some reason. Too modern looking like TPM and PotJ guys. PotF2 and OTC look to be the best since the vintage line

So is mine. I have the Saga guys I left in the package in a crappy spot

I need to find room for a bunch of the OTC and definately all 12 VOTC guys.
