30th Anniversary Cards?
« on: July 1, 2006, 09:06 PM »
It seems that the cards will go through another change for the "30th Anniv. Line" next year.  I think that this is the first time that I am not looking forward to a card change.  I think the current ones are perfect.  I couldn't ask for better cards.
 
I'm wondering if the card will somehow incorporate the original Tom Jung poster.  That might be very cool, but also very ANH-centric.


What does everyone think they'll do next year?

I feel the same way Mike, the current cards aren't broke, so I don't even want to put any thought into a new design.

I was pretty sure they said they'd have a new design next year.  I think the current ones are fine too, but as long as they stick with some sort of classic look, I think most people will be happy.

It might not be that bad. They have to update because the blue and red globs are going bye bye in place of coins.
It would be swet if you can buy stuff with those coins.
Maybe they will have a vintage POTF feel to keep the classic thing going.....

I for one wish they'd stick to one type longer - at very least keep them black.

My walls looks more like a rainbow than a toy collection with the Orange, purple, green, yellow, red, darker green, blue, gold, white, and now black cards...

Yes,  I too have rainbow walls at my SW room as well. Not to mention those damn ROTS cards that I haven't even begun to think about how to put those up :P. These current cards stack well and are attractive by design, though I could do with a smaller bubble, I say stay with what we got.

Not only am I annoyed that they're changing designs already, but I really don't like this new one. :-X

Let me be the first to say this:

Good thing I don't give a crap about card condition.

Yuck!  :-X

What's wrong with normal packaging, Hasbro? I guarantee this fancy packaging will raise the price of figures by another dollar or so. >:(

You beat me to that one.  People bitched ad naseum about the ROTS cards but these are much much worse with 16! corners to keep mint

I also don't know why they are doing this, its not like you celebrate 30th anniveraries as a major milestone for everything else

30th anniversaries are things you generally celebrate when there are no longer any upcoming films to promote. . .

Plus what are we going to abbreviate the name of this line as?

"SAGA30"

"SAGA 3.0"
