Also, Mike at GH just said that the OTC card design is supposedly going bye-bye when Ep. 3 hits, and that all the figures will be on this new card.  Hasbro finally nails the PERFECT card design, and they ditch it in less than a year.  That totally bites.  I'm praying they reconsider...   :-\

Well, if I get NEW figures then I'll take new cardbacks as well.  I do like these cardbacks, no doubt about it, as I am actually getting two of each of the new figures and one of each of the repacks just to keep on the card but I like change and since Hasbro is so use to reusing stuff, I have a feeling these will resurface in 2006.

It's definitely getting warmer. (No pun intended.)

And let me clarify that I have NOT seen Hasbro packaging, just Lucas Licensing's images from their style guide. This is the same guide every Star Wars licensee will use to package Episode III and other saga merchandise.

For those interested, the collector's packaging remains relatively unchanged. The upscale branding used by licensees like Master Replicas will retain its simple gold on black trade dress. Very classy.

I'm going to ask around when I get to the office. I skipped out on a Lucasfilm cocktail party during the Licensing Show where I'm sure more information was given out. Some colleagues of mine went. I'll try to get some info from them.

My guess is that since this new style guide is reaching licensees just now, depending on what product is being manufactured, this design could be incorporated by January '05.

Say what?!?  I hope you had a REAL HOT date or sumthin' John, 'cause otherwise your butt should've been in there, diggin' up as many carrots as possible!   ;)

Shame on you...   :-*

OK...little birdy sent me some more really big clues.  I've modified mine slightly and I think it looks pretty damn good!  Actually this is almost spot on

Improvising on the title, huh?  Honestly, it looks sharp Scott.

My question?  How long are they going to sit on the new look card?  After all, the AOTC card wasn't revealed until October 23, 2001

Probably be late fall before they release the details on the cards...although they might have something done by Comic Con...that thing is going to be chock full of SW

When are the sneak preview figures supposed to be released? Depending on the timeline, Hasbro might implement the new branding for that offering.

(Good job, Scott.)  ;)

Do you mean the final product will feature angry Vader?

I agree with Vator!  

I think that the card can be better, but oh well, I will buy up every figure.  So to hell with what I think! ;)
