I'm hoping we see some sort of combination of that as well, VOTC "style" figures on regular $5-$6 pricepoint cards. The vintage repo cards would be great too, but if cutting the clamshell out would save a few bucks, that would be fine with me. I'm excited to hear that the VOTC, or some form of it, might be returning in 2006...as well as the OTC style line. I am guessing that means more repacks, something that Mike from GH said as well in the forums over there. I guess after the success of the initial OTC line, that is to be expected. As long as the ratio of new to repacked figures is a little better, I don't mind too much I guess.
The thought of them redoing the entire vintage line in VOTC style is pretty cool, although I'm not sure that will happen. We might see more of them, but some figures (Cloud Car Pilot, Lando Skiff, etc.) have just recently gotten figure remakes that are pretty much as good as they need to be. Maybe those will be repacked if they are indeed doing each character from the vintage line. And, as much as I like the OT, I don't see them totally cutting out prequel figures next year either. We'll probably see a combination of things, which would be cool. Maybe VOTC "style" figures, on normal OTC style cardbacks, with characters (new and repacked) from each of the six movies included. Either way, it is just exciting to hear about some news looking towards 2006.
I like the figure thoughts many of you have already thrown out there. I'd really like to see nice, VOTC style versions the main characters like Han, Luke, and Leia (particularly Endor of all three, Stormtrooper Han/Luke, and possibly repack the earlier VOTC versions as well if necessary). Have some more super articulated troop figures (ala VOTC Stromie) put out there, like the Snowtroopers and Biker Scouts. Then finish out the line with other supporting characters, I know I'd really like to see a new "old" Tarkin now as well.
