New diorama packaging and more "green" materials
Today I got Anakin's Jedi Starfighter in the new red and white look (which actually works really well, at least for vehicles). As I'm sure most of you know, starting with this wave of ships, the packaging includes a diorama, much like the Indiana Jones vehicles (which I don't have, but I'm pretty sure it's the same idea). Anakin's ship has a scene based on the battle at the start of Downfall of a Droid, with AT-TEs perched on asteroids and V-19s and Separatist cruisers in the background. It's pretty big and I think it adds quite a bit to the value of these ships.
Another thing new to this wave is the packing materials used. Gone are all plastic fasteners, save for one small clear rubber band; instead, they use paper, rolled up and tied around the ship to secure it where the fasteners would be. I think this is pretty fantastic - it works better than you'd expect, and it's completely recyclable, for which I applaud Hasbro.
