Busy busy day...  Even without the site up.  :)

It's been fun seeing around the net all the people talking about it...  There's a handful of folks who are, for some reason, taking a nutty over the article and the images as if it smehow offended them...

The cries of "Fake Fake Fake!" in one particular place had me laughing my ass off for a while.

Most places I went had their share of doubters.  I might have contributed to the rumours of the premature demise of JD, at least in some places ;)

I'm in the middle about the packaging. I'm sure it'll grow on me. I like how they have that Vader helmet on the side. I just wish they had left the "Star Wars" part in gold.

Here is Frank's Card



Looks good...someone else sent me this pic of the Vader Head mirrored on the for a full stylized Helmet.  I wonder if that might be the way they go...

Remember this old beauty?



Looks like CIII is using it as their logo...I wonder if they were in on these images too?

As my photoshop is currently acting up I decided to use paint for this...it's a little assumption of what we might see in the Episode III product line. The pic is crappy, but you get the idea.

There is a new Hyperspace picture out that shows the new packaging (it's also on the mainpage) and I must say it sucks donkey balls. I reallllly hope that's not a basic figure card. Please god do not let that be the figure card!

It's a better design than what those styleguide images suggested. It's good for what they're doing, I guess... if you believe there are kids who care the least about these for more than 2 seconds. It's a pretty contemporary package that seems to fit in line with other modern toy lines. I guess I can understand why they did it.

Well, I guess we now have confirmation that the Grevious figure will have an action feature.

It's certainly unique.  Very flashy, very kid oriented.  I like the Vader looking over everything.  Boo action features.

What is that crap? It looks like a cross between Justice League and Playschool toys! That is just BUTT UGLY. The Vader is cool, but the rest sucks. SLASHING ACTION!!!! Geez, that is an eyesore.

The more I think about it, the more I am APALLED at this kind of packaging. It looks very cheap, like the kind of stuff you'd find at Dollar General.
