An interesting thought too... when the rumors came out of NYTF that Vintage would maybe go away, at least for the time being... Am I the only one who's happy to see some kind of value-added item maybe being put back into the line?
I like how vintage packaging looks too, don't get me wrong. It's purdy and all. But ultimately I've always said I don't buy toys for the packaging. At today's prices I find anything $8.99 and up needing some kind of value beyond the figure. 30AC gave the coins, and who cares ultimately? Neat in a full set, but worthless otherwise.
What was nice then was the packaging allowed, and Hasbro utlizied it, to make larger accessories... Bar pieces, tables, etc. That was cool.
The BAD line though I was skeptical on, but I really found that the figure was good incentive to A) buy a full wave, and B) buy extras too. I'd buy a couple army builders and then wind up buying random extras or repacks to complete droids. I wound up greatly missing BAD as soon as it was gone. Missed it even more when prices went up even further.
I don't care if it's EU, movie canon, or made up... I like droid repaints. I like the unique ones even better, especially if they're from movies, but I'm ok with just a made up deco too. Especially if it's creative and looks completely feasible as something you COULD have seen in the background of any scene.
