People are thinking the card opens up as well.  Or is it to keep the hooks from bending?

Still wish I knew what that build a thing is. ???

Constapated Voovo dude looks a tad like that bounty hunter from clone wars with the Rayden hat. :)

Could easily see them doing an exclusive Phasma in the line somewhere that is actually chromed if the molds can take the right plastic.  The buffed finish silver doesn't look bad but there is $ on the table there.

Opens up?  Interesting.  One other idea on the cardback I saw on twitter was that it's 2 parts glued together with the edge of the bubble tucked under it to help prevent theft or the bubble falling off...  ???

They were wondering about that with Kylo Ren (and we didn't get to see the back of the card).  But upon seeing the others, I'd say it's the second option (the theft/bubble issue).

Finns coat is either really well sculpted or separate.  That was always a big buggaboo for me on 5 POA figs.  Skirt pieces and coats look like ass on the hips.  That Finn is way better looking than many previous figs in this general style.

Looking at the back of the Flametrooper again - there is definitely tape at the top, possibly holdingtwo parts together.  J-hook there definitely looks like two pieces.  Maybe it does open up for some reason?  Hmmm...

It would be cool if they just popped open vs. having to tear them.  I'd like to keep the cards pristine like that, though that would be a pretty obvious risk for shoplifting.

Could be.  I just figured they tried to beef up the J-hook and didn't line it up very well as has been the case in the past.  But it'd be cool if they did open up. 

Even though I'm not buying these, I admit the figures look great and I love the card art of the characters.  Anyone getting rid of the cards?

Nope, I have confirmed that these are from the Snow/Desert and Jungle/Space assortments.... 

Phasma, Kylo, Luke =
SW E7 3.75IN FIGURES JUNGLE SPACE AST
DPCI: 087-06-3947
$7.99

Zuvio, Flametrooper, Finn =
SW E7 3.75IN FIGURES SNOW DESERT AST
DPCI: 087-06-3948
$7.99


Still haven't solved the mystery if these are indeed the "basic figure" line or if the rumored "087-06-3658 SW E7 3.75 Single Fig" is still happening.
