I still want some POTF with Coin issued cardbacks
I thought a POTF line would of given us a shot at a Luke Stormtrooper reissue and the Luke Endor reissue everyone has wanted. But with a rumored Luke w/Poncho part of the SAGA line I guess that is not happening.
Hopefully a POTF series would look something like this:
A $10+ VOTC/VTSC Imperial Dignitary? I'd like to see that one redone too, but only in the basic line.
And I'd love to see a new Anakin done up like the OTC Spirit Ben, but I don't know how in the world they'd be able to do it on a vintage-style card, thanks to Lucas' tinkering with Sebastian/Hayden.
I've always been under the impression that the coins were a potential roadblock in a retro POTF wave. But I've always liked that logo and those cardbacks, and I think it would be great if they could redo them. I think part of the problem, besides the coins, is that a lot of the POTF figures either don't need updating, or would be particularly lame as $10+ retro releases. So what I'd do, is mix up a POTF wave or two with both POTF figures, and older figures that were on POTF cards. Something like this:
Luke Poncho (make it the be-all, end-all, Endor and Death Star II version)
Han Carbonite (still haven't gotten a perfect version, in my opinion)
Still needs a good Imperial army-builder, though--which is kind of tough, as some of them weren't released on POTF cards, and the ones that were have already been redone recently (Stormtrooper, AT-AT Driver, Biker Scout). That leaves the AT-ST Driver, which is a character design that's never done a whole lot for me. But I don't particularly like the idea of $10+ army-builders to begin with, though, so **** it.
In that case, why not a list of already released Modern Vintage figures that weren't on their original Cardback, including all four of the wave 1 ROTJ figures:
Yeah, I see what you mean--I just really don't care about simple logo changes when it comes to retro vintage figures, that's all. That said, I could really go for Chewbacca (with the Early Bird headsculpt) and Artoo on Star Wars cards, as I've never cared for the later photos they went with for the VOTC versions. I guess photos are more important to me than logos--unless we're talking about POTF, which is kind of it's own thing, in my opinion.
