These look good, but I didn't remember the ones shown in '12 having such small blister pack bubbles. Kinda glad this design didn't make it to market only due to the very tiny J-hook.
I wonder how much the card designs were modified for this release - it's interesting that the droid part is in the bubble with the figure as opposed to a separate piece like in 2008-2010.
I'd like to see them do other sets like this but with character selections that wouldn't sell at mass retail (i.e. Cliegg Lars, Jaxxon, etc.) as opposed to army builders.
Originally, I think they were concerned about theft and about getting casual consumers to look at the card more, so those rear windows made sense. But here there's no concern about on-the-shelf theft of the droid parts, and the value issue has become a much more vital selling point to the figures as the price has skyrocketed over the last 3 years.
Anyone else going to Joelanta this weekend?

I liked the look of #6's art, while the story was very weak. The bounty hunter-type warriors look quite similar to the motley bunch gathered on Vader's
