    Someone Should Make A "cardback" Of All The Modern Figures Replacing The 102 Original

    I have a Photoshop project for only the best, most enterprising person (with time on their hands) to tackle.

    I designed the look for a "Kenner-style" cardback showing all the modern figures arranged like an '80's cardback (see picture of one below - but I'd recommend blue for the new cardback, similar to the way ESB cardbacks were done). Someone could edit the pictures of the modern figures in and make a great poster!

    I changed the order of the figures via a new strategy for displaying them.

    Left-to-right in rows approximating ANH, ESB, and ROTJ, the columns go:

    Luke, Han, Leia, Droids, Jedi, Imperials, Sith - with variation rows such as:

    Luke, Han, Leia, Droids, Cantina

    Luke, Han, Leia, Cloud City, Bounty Hunters, Imperials

    Luke, Han, Leia, Rebel Alliance, Ewoks, Imperials

    Luke, Han, Leia, Jabba the Hutt's gangsters

    I count 102 original vintage MOVIE figures, noting that the vintage cardbacks would remove older versions of C-3PO and R2D2, not show both Snaggletoothes, the Max Rebo Band Members, or count Jabba the Hutt and Salacious Crumb even though they were characters and not creatures.

    In rows of 10, 102 figures could be displayed to create an easy visual reference guide to the best updates for the modern figures by this order (leaving 5 blank spaces so one can fill them in with pictures later when those figures get made):

    Luke-Han-Leia-Chewie-R2D2-C3PO-Obi-Wan-Death Squad Cmdr-Stormtrooper-Vader

    Luke Xwing-Tusken Raider-Jawa-Blue Snag-Red Snag-R5D4-Gonk-Walrusman-Momaw-Greedo

    In case anyone else wants to tackle this project, here are the links to the figures I thought would look best:

    (please be sure to credit Rebelscum's photographer(s) since their work made this possible)

    In BOLD are figures that have not been re-made (the right characters because yes I know there are 2 Imperial Dignitaries and tons of Hoth Rebel Soldiers, etc). Like I said - I'd save space for them so you can add them to your image in another year or so.

    Anyway, who wants to make this? Steve should post it on the mainpage when it's done for sure!
