Interesting observation there Jeff, and you may be on to something, but I honestly hope you're guess is wrong. I don't want another removable limbs 3PO, I want a first-ever super articulated one. That's it. And shiny too. That's not so much to ask now, is it?
So hopefully they just use the regular 3PO vintage card that you have pictured second there, rather than the Removable Limbs one. I like the look of the original 12 figure cards myself (even if they have to be on an ESB or ROTJ card). They should've just done the original 12 in the first place, and maybe tossed in one more POTF wave with Yoda, Fett, Lando, and the Emperor... Meesa loven da 12-backs muy muy.
