I'd be all over the OT figures.  I'm not a carded collector for the most part these days, EXCEPT for figures on vintage style cards.  I really want these for the asthetics of the carded display - Hasbro can go ahead and rerelease the figures in 2010 on basic cards without the clamshell.

I just hope they make a retro 1978 style card for the TPM figures.  Seeing that lame red card from 99 again would make me all yucky inside.

Man, I can't wait to read the various forums when they announce plans for retro 1978 style card for the TPM figures.  I'm sure all the vintage guys will love seeing these on eBay...    :D

When's the last time we actually got a figure of Jar Jar on a basic figure card?  2002?  I think the classic vintage card design has some serious appeal.  Prequel or not.

I like the ANH choices.  The TESB choices seem logical, although a bit weighted towards core characters.  No mention of an Emporer though, huh?  That's disappointing.

I believe these was on the Vintage Retro List an long time ago, and probaby will be in the basic line next year because I wouldn't think hasbro will make us pay $12 for an Wicket, heck he wouldn't be worth paying $7 in the basic line. I think these are really basic figures for this/next year

ANH Wave: (including Stormtroopers Han and Luke, & Obi-Wan)
Walrus Man
Death Squad Commander
Jawa

ESB Wave: (including Willrow Hood)

Potentially exciting and yet potentially frightening. I will be disappointed if we get vintage style PT cards.

They'll probably put TPM figures on TPM cards, or at least I hope so.

If Hasbro decided to have a saga-wide regular line with this logo style and photo cardback, I think it would be nice.  But if they go for a Kenner reproduction card with prequel characters, that seems a little blasphemous  :-\

Personally, I don't see what the big deal is about packaging.  I'd be fine if all figures came in plastic sleeves.

When Hasbro asks for an extra $5 just for said packaging just to rip it open and throw away, that's my only problem.

I can see these being carded like the 25th G.I.Joes.

I could see this being a possibility, with the big success of the 25th Joes this past year+.  If all the rumors of this report line up, I just can't see six waves of $10-$12 figures, in addition to the regular TLC line, and also the Clone Wars line.  Sure, its not like Hasbro doesn't like taking our money, but that's sure a lot of stuff/lines out at once.  Plus, with the figures listed, that's really taking a lot of the "anchor characters" for waves and putting them in this supposedly "vintage" line.

Its hard to say what this will be.  I don't think its the "main", regular line - because in this past week's Q and A, Hasbro said they had Build-A-Droids worked out to the end of 2009.  If these would continue the trend of being on a vintage cardback, they couldn't include those BAD parts.  To be honest, I'd be happy to see all of the figures on this list - but they don't need to be on pseudo-vintage cardbacks with premium pricing.  Putting some of those OT ones on the vintage cardbacks is always great (depending on how high the price goes now), but figures like the "ultimate" Jar Jar, Padme, etc. can just be put into the basic line.  Like its been said many times, that quality is in the basic line fairly regularly at this point anyways.  I do kind of like the big picture cardbacks (like the vintage days), but don't necessarily know how I feel about prequel (or even EU) characters being put on a true vintage cardback.  Like Daigo-Bah said, it seems blasphemous.  Its definitely a nice list (new Ackbar, hopefully new Bespin Han/Hoth Luke, etc.), and I do hope we get all new, "ultimate" versions of all of these characters.  Darth Maul is listed, and I always thought the Evolutions one was pretty good aside from adding ball elbows.  Anyways, I'm definitely interested, and hope that this list of figures turns out to be true if nothing else - even if its just in the basic line.

I personally don't see the big deal in putting prequel figures on a classic style card.  There's nothing sacred about the card.  It's a classic looking Star Wars card.  Would it be a little strange to look at?  Sure.  Other than that, I have no problem with having figures from the entire Saga on a unified looking line of cardbacks.

I don't really have any problems with it either.
