Indeed Jess, the more I look at this the more I want to order... I wish I had the $$$ to get into this series, much less the space. These look really nice packaged and loose even to a guy like me that opens damn near everything.
I thought the same thing, this packaging looks really nice. I'm a collector that opens just about everything I have as well, but something like this would be neat in case you ever wanted to put it back in the packaging (for display, storage, moving or whatever). Plus, the elaborate packaging with pics and all that is pretty neat too. I missed out on the order for this Luke, and I'm sort of regretting it at this point. I kind of like to see a company go all out with a Star Wars line like this. The figure has all the bells and whistles, is packed with accessories, and now has a real nice (and collector friendly) box to bring it all to you. Part of me wouldn't mind seeing the basic figure line go somewhat this route eventually (like maybe when the retail side might be drying up), in the aspect where we get nice VOTC-styled figures, with lots and lots of accessories, and a nice, collector friendly package that allows you to have your figure loose, or carded, and a little bit more limited number of figures for the year so that everyone could afford them. Instead of having 60-70 figures in a year (over half of which are usually rehashes) having a much more manageble number.
