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....
