• 35th Anniversary "Lost Line" Packaged Card Backs

      More eBay auctions are showing up with a few goodies and this time it's the 35th Anniversary (also known as the "Lost Line" look). These have shown up at retail computers as "35th Anniversary" and it's in the card back description so I am going with that series name. Is it the official name? I'll find out at SDCC next week.

        I don't see the point of the Vintage line capitalizing on nostalgia for never-produced card designs.

        And they're ugly. Yeah, I'll say it. Hideous. There's a reason they weren't used, and they shouldn't be used now.

        They're dynamic, but not really inspiring because the character is such a small part of the graphics. They remind me of the '90s toy packaging.

        It's called "retro future past;" all the rage. I'd buy one figure, just to have one card. But completist? Nah.

        I think it'll be a non-issue for most folks because, like the "current" waves of the Vintage Collection, they'll never be seen at retail anywhere but the big metro stores. We haven't seen any new figures up this way since the Episode One wave clogged the pegs...don't expect this line to be any different.
