Yes, they originally planned to put some of the harder to find E1 figures on new POTJ cards. They changed their minds though, and decided not to. One of the reasons they decided not to, was because they dropped the Commtech Chips. The same thing will likely happen with the plans to put some of the more HTF POTJ figures on the Saga cards. :)

And the TC-14 figure on the Obi-Wan card wasn't a mistake. These are pictures of figures on mock-up packages. This is the same as the Saga Watto figure displayed on a Plo Koon card that was shown a while ago. If Hasbro doesn't have the packaging ready, they will just test card it on what ever is laying around. :)

They changed them because feedback from the collecting community was very very negative. Everyone hated the cartoon Obi-Wan ontop of the Darth Vader head. It was just a packaging prototype, I prefer the final version myself. Atleast the Obi-Wan looks real. :)

I still hope they release some of those hard to find figures with the Saga line as well. I missed out on TC-14 and would like to get her without paying over- inflated prices.:)

Yeah, I hear ya; I liked these almost as much as the classic card. The new Saga card just looks plain and cheap to me, I wish they had kept this style instead.:)
