I actually like the prequel figures on the vintage cards.  I do agree that the Kenner logo doesn't make sense on them to me either.  However, I guess so does Han Solo with the Echo Base jacket and Dack Ralter.

To me the vinty cards are just a throw back to vintage days and that includes the Kenner Logo.  I'd hate seeing the logo show up sometimes and not others.  Like you said too Broem, it doesn't apply to a lot of OT figures too.

I kind of like the idea of this being how the line looked it Kenner ran it forever, never folded, and decided to keep the same look since 1978 (more or less).

I'm not sure why the vintage look is not everywhere in the line, including Clone Wars.  To me it's iconic, and most people from my generation equate SW with this particular packaging.  It could be as recognizable as Coke or other brands which have more or less maintained their 'vintage' logos.  I also like the idea about the Kenner line being unbroken.  If the CW line were in this look, oh my God.

Looks like a great wave. I'll get one of everything except maybe the AT-RT Driver. Despite my dislike of Hasbro's Stormtrooper/ROTS Clone ball-joint legs, I'll pick up several of the AOTC Clone since I recently noticed my Clones from those Entertainment Earth 4 packs are getting pretty yellow, leaving me with like 2 "good" AOTC Clones.

I agree.  The CW cards are all different images anyway (meaning not a generic cardback) , so why not go all the way?

The imagry from the show is great and the cards would be very appealing.

I loves the true vintage stuff, I loves the TCW stuff. But I don't want some weird mash-up of the two.

Think how messed up all those pegs would get!

Totally bummed about the Lando. Nice to get the upgrade, but the card back is very disappointing.

Stoked for the Jedi dude! HUGE step-up from that pathetic Saga rendition!

Does anyone know why the back of the card shows a picture of Luke (with the date 1980 right next to it)? Has this figure been made in the Vintage days? Or is it that Hasbro is just finding a way to keep the line look fresh...?

It's a bit dull but at least it shows him with the cape.  I think a Falcon shot would not have it?  But I know what you mean.  I think for the wave the Skiffmaster looks the best.  Then again I've been wanting this figure for a long time.  I'm just hyped to finally be getting it.

The photo used for the Lando cardback is the same one used for the original vintage POTF figure...


This will be the first POTF figure in the TVC line, nicely done.

Not a fan of these mixed movie waves, the PT figures make this somewhat of a yawn wave.

I wonder when we'll start seeing the EU integrated into these waves...

Awesome wave! I only regret it wasnīt entirely OT, but all the characters depictions deserve credit.

Luke Dagobah Landing (the best of the entire wave) looks as the sculptors have corrected the straps of the support life unit plate, wider than tlc snowspeeder pilot, and the figure is a bit taller than taht version.

I donīt collect Pt, so I have only references by photos and some displays on stores:
the white clone misses the gray application on shoes soles, that would have made him stunning. (I think his evolution would inspire a new stormie sculpt)

Lando seems taller than ever, nice paint job and disposition of the cape.
Gree with removable helmet looks colorful, and as hasbro has corrected the proportion of his limbs.
Nikto Jedi evolves fantastically on  head sculpt.
