So these cards aren't even original cards scanned and manipulated, the entire card has most likely been scratch built using pieces from the vintage cards. Most interesting....
Yep. Hasbro admitted this during the preview of vOTC Ben:
"Without access to the original package artwork, Hasbro’s package designers had to recreate it from scratch. To help Hasbro achieve a near-exact replica, Lucasfilm dug deep into their archives to find the original, Kenner-exclusive character photographs as well as the original Luke & Leia logo.
Using these images and an actual original package, Hasbro’s designers went to work to match the package details stroke-for-stroke:"
This is why we are seeing minor variations in the pictures and the type-set used in the RotJ logo. These are NOT exactly the same, just really, really good dupes
