It's a problem for a carded/boxed collector. Dare I say it looks like a kiddy pack? Just my opinion, but I'm passing on this set only because of the Vader included in it - plus I already own 162 other Vaders.
I'm not sure what carded-vs-opening has to do with the price of tea in China ... I was discussing the in-universe storytelling aspect (Vader personally leading troops through the jungle) more than the toy itself.
I do see what you mean insofar as the opener can remove Vader from the jungle setting packaging to use in other scene setups, but that sort of nullifies the point I was getting at, which is that Vader (particularly this younger iteration) has shown on other occasions that he doesn't have a problem getting down in the trenches when a mission calls for it.
