The thing I don't get is, if you are an opener, what in the world does it matter what packaging it comes on?  Put them on freaking Strawberry Shortcake cardbacks for all I care, I'm going to open and enjoy good figures.

 :)

I collect everything carded, and loose.

44 VOTC Stormtroopers and 22 evolutions packs say it's not about money for me.

 

It's not really about the packaging for me, it would be money actually.  Still I'd rather see a $10 Rebel Fleet Trooper that was awesome regardless of how it was packaged, than perhaps another reissue of the POTJ version.

Oh.  Yesterday you said it was because it would be urinating on the memory of the vintage line more than they already have.  I thought it was the purist in you.

 :)

That's certainly part of it, too, but I'm pretty sure that I mentioned that the expense was a factor, as well. 

But I understand if that may have gotten lost in the shuffle, with the four-or-five dozen posts you made here yesterday. . .

Ah, I knew the personal insults couldn't be far behind.

No personal insults here. 

You posted a ton of stuff yesterday, so it's perfectly normal to assume that you would have spent more time typing instead of listening to what other people had to say.

I can't speak for Matthew,  but that's certainly 99% of it for me.

Are we still talking about little plastic toys or is this about something important and serious? ???

For the record I'm all for non-vintage figures getting slipped into the vintage modern collections...  I'd prefer that Hasbro focused on getting the main characters and army builders FROM the Vintage line out first...  But I'd prefer certain non-vintage figures getting slipped in over some actual vintage figures.  That's partly the customizer in me though since I've enjoyed seeing people's work to make a vintage Tarkin or vintage Fleet Trooper... 

For me I'd prefer the RFT get a $10 great figure over no decent basic figure...  I want to see some vintage redo's though first like Han Hoth, Luke Hoth, Leia Hoth just off the top of my head... 

I'd take a vintage styled RFT over Rancor Keeper any day though.

I'll take both - or my dream of having an entire vintage carded set (yet to begin) next to an entire VTSC carded set will never become reality.

I'd take both, don't get me wrong Rob, but I'd take the RFT first I guess is my meaning there...  I want that more. 

I want that in the basic line though of course...  If they'd put this stuff out in the basic line, or be more willing to imply they WOULD put this level of quality into the basic line (as they should) more often, then I'd not have the desire to see the "Vintage" styled Fleet Trooper over background figures who were in the vintage line originally.

I'd take a Rancor Keeper too though...  It'd almost be comical.

I want more RFT Troopers too, done right.  Maybe not as much as Jesse has spoken out about it, but pretty damn bad.  If it's VSTS, Evolutions, whatever.  For $10, if done right, I'd get at least 20 of them.  As long as they are done right, I'd be happy regardless of packaging or whatever gimmick they tried to go with.

I would go nuts (in a good way) to see a Rebel Fleet Trooper on a newly created "Vintage" card.  It would be like a "what if..." card, and would satisfy a strong childhood to have that figure on a Kenner card.

For that matter, I would have been happy if they'd put the recent Santrooper in the VTSC on a newly created Vintage style card. Again, as a kid I really, really wanted a Santrooper, but Kenner never delivered.

That's a good idea too Speedermike, at least in my opinion.  I'd go for that.
