I'm not trying to be argumentative, negative, whatever. To me, a package is something that gets chucked into the recycling bin; I don't care how it's designed or what it looks like. Seriously, the packaging could be hot pink and show a picture of Miley Cyrus on the artwork, with the only text being, "The buyer of this figure is a dork!" If the figure's one I want, I couldn't care less.
I'm just curious about this. Hasbro, based on their remarks in the Q&A's, thinks this is the way to get lapsed collectors back, increase sales, yadda yadda, and the excitement from most collectors, even loose collectors, seems to back this up. If they're truly planning to release new versions of all 96 vintage figures, people seem to be truly excited about buying unnecessary updates (or, since the TVC line will include re-released figures, the same figures again) just for old-school cards.
I'll admit that I'd buy a new TVC Mon Mothma, for instance, but that'd be for the figure, since the first one sucks and an update is way overdue. I don't think any amount of vintage-style artwork is going to make her a hot seller with casual collectors. I can't see myself buying the 2009 Han and Luke in Stormtrooper disguise to get new cards.
Am I really the only person who will look at the packaging and think, "That's just like the card I threw away thirty years ago," before throwing it away?
