Just don't waste the OTC cards on 2 small waves of figures and 14 rehashes!
That is one of my biggest concerns too Matt, I really hope that these great new cardbacks (which pretty much everyone seems to like) aren't just used for Dagobah, Bespin, and the recarded figures. Although I know I'm a little biased since I really like the new design (and the vintage designs as well), I think these would really be eye catching, and I hope that they continue.
I was curious too about where, if there will be any, the prequel trilogy figures will fit in. Maybe we won't have anything new until 2005, or maybe there will be some sort of other line that covers anything that isn't OT. It does kind of sound like Saga is done with the Endor Generals this year, but maybe it will come back later on. Or maybe they will just use the OTC cardbacks (since they use that style for Yoda's lightsaber), like you said.
I really hope that they keep the OTC going though, and maybe have the other collection be for prequel figures. They've almost always had some sort of collection 1, collection 2 type of thing going (especially during movie years), so maybe we'll see the OTC into 2005, and a new line starting for the Episode III goodies. It will be interesting to see.
