I loved many of those POTF2 Cinema Scenes. It was a great idea and it gave us collectors many background figures.
Now, while 3 was a good number it was difficult to package. They ended up being boxed and had a plastic floor for them to stand on.
What if Hasbro changed to 2 pack cinema scenes? They could be packaged and cost similar to Deluxe figures. The background (if any) could be printed on the card. Include a pair of stands for the figures. The whole thing would be similar to how the 4" GI Joe 2-packs are packaged. The cost would be lower that the POTF2 Cinema Scenes, which was one of the problems with that line.
The pairs could be:
Captian Antiles and Darth Vader
Gold Leader w/ Astromech Droid
Yavin Rebel Officer pair
Hoth Rebel Officer Pair
C-3PO with throne and 2 Ewoks
Jedi Council Pairs from EP1 and ATOC
not to mention all of the Cantina and Jabba Palace Aliens.
Would this work?
