This really is based off stuff that comes out of LFL's Ep3 styleguide? The orange/red theme is going to be played out before the movie even hits - it's so overbearing.
Yes it is...I want to know what they plan on doing for the 3-4 months of time between the end of OTC and EpIII

I agree, what will happen?  

I know RS had a report about four preview figures and a ship being released in November and I couldn't help but think: huh?  

Where is the logic of that?  POTJ was in full swing through the winter IIRC.  Sure, it was the last couple of waves, but still at least 7 figures.  Leaving only four figures and a ship for the Christmas season plus another four months (six months in total) is just plain stupid marketing.

Good point.  Fans are going to be getting more and more excited for the big show in May - to only have those 4 preview figures will definitely not be enough to keep us happy.  Who knows, maybe they'll manage to work in some more OTC stuff in the meantime?

As for the cardback, Comic Con may even be too early to reveal the card.  With such a focus on OTC, they may delay revealing it a little longer.  Of course, I would like to be wrong, after seeing all of the great mock-ups here, I need to know what the card will really be!

Packaging is interesting, undecided as yet, but that twin sheet set is disturbing.  Why Naboo fighters ???

A great Scoop of course Scott...  

I'm still undecided on whether I like it or not myself too...  I'll miss OTC personally.  Not the repacks, but the packaging is still the best.  :)

Well, riddle me this:  are these official marketing images, or collector mockups?

These are not collector mockups they would be official marketing images I would guess from the same style guide the mock up card backs were based on

It looks ok, I'll still buy all of it.

I really do dig the Halloween colors though, so yeah.

I think it's kind of bland, but maybe I'm spoiled after all this OTC stuff.  Oh, well.  It's good enough, and certainly makes one excited for next year.
