I like the card colors, but I hate that stupid curve design. Looks too fat. >:(

Agreed, the bulging sides look like the fat guy me at the company BBQ.   ::)

I was going to say something about "junk in the trunk", but this will suffice.  :)

The card design and stuff looks good, but I agree that the bubble could have been done a tad better (a.k.a. square bubbles).

Oh yeah and the forum name I like is "WTF, Saga Collection?"

I guess the card design is the reason for the design of the Star Case they sold the Holo-Leia's in.

I like the design tweak while still staying true to the Vintage type packaging. I'm glad we'll start to get some PT waves regularly as well.

Not too keen on the mini-holo figure idea, mostly 'cause I don't know much about it. Like for example, if there are 6 new figures and only 3 new holos and then each of those 6 figures come with each of the three different holos, THAT WILL SUCK - especially for the super-strict variant set. For me it will force me to hunt not just for the figure, but for the figure that contains the mini-holo I need/want.

So if they always pack the same mini-holo with any one figure, that will make me happy, but then if the same mini-holo figure comes with more than one figure, that will mean I'll have LOTS of mini-holo figures floating around.

I dunno - I would have rather they revisit fact files or just include sculpted bases instead of the gray rectangles. Anyone who was on the fence about buying the figures isn't going to make the purchase based solely on the inclusion of the mini-holo fig, so I don't truly understand the marketing behind this decision....  ???

Just for handy reference, I though I'd quote Nathan here:

Quote
Each wave of action figures will be focused on a classic battle, and include the iconic characters. Look for 56 figures, split into 8 waves, and as an added bonus, each figure will inlcude a bonus holographic mini figure. The waves are as follows:

Battle of Carkoon from Episode VI will include 6 figures
Battle of Hoth from Episode V will include 8 figures
Battle of Coruscant from Episode III will include 6 figures
Battle of Geonosis from Episode II will include 7 figures
Battle of Tatooine from Episode IV will include 7 figures
Battle of Endor from Episode VI will include 8 figures
Battle of Naboo from Episode I will include 8 figures
Battle of Death Star from Episode IV will include 6 figures
