I agree, I sort of wish they would have went ahead and done an "old school" back as well with the Vintage Collection. Sure, these match up with the VOTC/VTSC cards, but since we're covering the entire non-CW Star Wars universe in this line now, they could have changed things up a bit. Having a big "collect 'em all" picture, or even individual figures in the color backgrounds (from earlier in the vintage line) would have been pretty cool. Granted, toy making/marketing/etc. is a bit different these days - and much of that info is considered national security level clearance it seems - but it would have been neat. It is a totally different world, but I do sort of remember fondly the times of looking at those cardbacks to even know what else was out there, or was coming out soon. Not as feasible these days, but it was cool. For some reason, the pictures of the ROTS figures looks strange to me too. I understand what they are going for, but it just seems off.
All that said, who is picking up a carded set of the Vintage line? Are you sticking to only the OT characters, the whole works, or none at all?
