Hmmmm...I don't know about this.  I can't imagine these Maul cards, plus TVC, plus Clone Wars all at once.  I think TVC will take a break.  Personally, as long as I get some ANH stuff (RFT, Ezavan) on Vinatge cards I'll be satisfied. 

Comercially, it would make sense to have Maul on everything for a year, then Jango with AOTC, then Grevious with ROTS, then Vader with ANH, then Yoda for ESB, and finally...hmmm who should be on the ROTJ card?  My vote is for Droopy McCool, but Jabba would be fine.

Time for a bump...

Our pals over at Yakface are once again reporting that Yoda will be the key to the 2013 Packaging.  Sure makes sense and flows nicely from Maul in 2012. 

When the Maul stuff broke last year at this time, there was some concerns about the Vintage Line, but we all know the Vintage stuck around and Maul was only for Movie Heroes and Clone Wars.  I can see Yoda being used for Movie Heroes and Clone Wars...  but will Vintage be around in 2013 or will the 2013 "realistic" line use the Yoda look too?   :-X



Also, I can't remember where we were speculating on this before, so I'll re-start the talk here too-

2012/TPM = Maul
2013/AOTC = Yoda

Your guesses for the rest?
2014/ROTS = ?
2015/ANH = ?
2016/ESB = ?
2017/ROTJ = ?

You have to figure that Vader and/or Anakin will end up on there for ROTS... probably get Fett for ESB. Maybe a Stormtrooper for ANH?  Or Vader for ANH if they use Anakin for ROTS?

I'm just starting to warm up to the Maul packaging. I can't really say that Yoda is too representative of AOTC, but it's whatever at this point, I guess. All said and done.

Here's my take on what's coming next...

ROTS - "Sith eyes" hooded Anakin
ANH - Darth Vader
ESB - Boba Fett
ROTJ - Jedi Luke

ROTS: Vader
ANH: R2-D2/3PO (both or R2...  I don't think 3PO would get it himself but R2 might)
ESB: Fett
ROTJ: Jedi Luke or Palpatine

I've been curious if they would continue this pattern for the other releases as well, I sort of hope they do.  I've been tempted to pick up a carded Maul just to have a "set" of each of the featured characters on those cardbacks when all is said and done, but we'll see.  It is tough to pay $8 or $9 for those cruddy Maul figures :).

I like the thoughts posted here on future possibilities, if I had to guess:

ROTS - Anakin
ANH - R2 or Vader
ESB - Fett
ROTJ - Luke

Honestly, it would be nice to see some new characters on the cardbacks (like Luke, he doesn't seem to get his due much with the cardbacks, same for R2).
