Carded Cody  (it actually looks like the Foiled "UGH" Cody)

I've been waiting for carded pics to turn up as how nice the prequel stuff looks (or how bad it looks) will ultimately determine if I go "all in" on carded collecting this line or not.

Same here.  I'm thinking I'll be picking up a carded set of at least the OT figures, but I'm on the fence about the prequel stuff as well.  I'm a sucker for those types of cardbacks, but I worry if I just grab a few I'd want to get the "set".  Plus, it would save a lot of money avoiding them ;).


I would like to buy a complete set of all vintage carded figures, but figures like Zuckuss, Leia, and Han that just don't enthuse me I will not be buying.  So I'll probably pick up like 75% of these carded and just hang all of those on the wall.  No point in displaying the figures I don't like just to be a completist, I gave that up in 1999.

JTA has pointed out that ROTS wave Clone Commander Cody's belt has been fixed (the original LC release had an upside-down belt).

Although, being that I already got him in LC, I'm not gonna buy this one again just to have a correct belt.

I have decided for better or worse to go carded on these, which I have never done.  I don't know.  Some of my friends are only doing figures never on vintage cards before (Dak, etc.) which I kind of like.

That's what I'd like, ones that were never on Vintage cards before.

I've been doing carded since 01, but I plan on being done doing that once this line runs its course in 2 years or whenever.  Was happy to finally get the mindset to ditch carded Legends and CW so -  one last Hooorah for me and then I'm out.

Since I have a complete MOC collection, I will definitely be getting one of each Vintage Collection figure to keep MOC.

I might pass on straight-up re-releases, but if even those re-releases have fixes - like the Commander Cody w/the correctly oriented belt/ammo packs makes the figure "different enough" for me to justify having one open.  :P

Even the Clonetrooper in this wave is "different enough" for me to want to get a couple of open - so far we don't have a plain white ROTS Clone w/ball-jointed hips, there are enough places in vehicles and whatnot where I would definitely like to put this clone, so I might be picking up more than one to open.

For the Magnaguard, I'm definitely down for at least four of those to open.

With the rest of the waves after that, I'm definitely down for at least 2 of each (one to open and one to keep MOC) and any extras or army building will be dependant on whether or not I like the figure when I see it.

This is one of the reasons why I like SDCC so much - it pretty much gives me an indication of how much I need to budget through the holiday shopping season to keep up with collecting the line.

Little surprised no one has commented on these, but the ROTS cards look great.  The Magna Guard looks good, Sidious is... I don't know.  I would have preferred they didn't do soft goods, but he's fine.  The cards turned out very nice and I'm excited to add them to my collection.

overall the wave is good, Sandtrooper is the best one (love the card). I think the cards are great (anakin and obiwan are the best PT cards so far).  I agree with Darby on Sidious, prefer plastic than cloth.  Does anybody know if Anakin has new arms ?

I like the ROTS Clone's very "Luke Stormtrooper" look on that card for some reason.

I think all the ROTS cards are fine, and I'm geeked for Palpatine.  He's easily my favorite.  Give me articulation any day over a salt shaker.  Sorry.   :-\

The Magna Guard's a close second, and I'm set to buy redecoes of this figure if they're willing to do them since they came in a blue flavor as well. 

Lots of good stuff.  The ROTJ wave's kind of overshadowing ROTS's wave, but I think it's a pretty well put together group of figures.

I think the ROTS wave looks pretty good as well.  I like Sidious, from what we can see, and the MagnaGuard is a much needed upgrade.  As far as the cards go - I'll still admit that it still seems strange seeing PT characters on these types of cardbacks - but they do look nice.  Either way, still the best packaging of the modern line for me.  There is the nostalgia factor (particularly with the OT figures), but I've always just liked the big picture of the character - as well as the smaller blister (if we can't have larger accessories that is).  Looks nice, and as has been the case lately, not really a stinker in the bunch.  Hasbro has really been doing a nice job with figures lately.
