It took me awhile to distinguish the difference in the color packaging for this year. 

I hope you are right about next year Nick.  I prefer a totally different packaging for the 2 lines.


When Hasbro first showed the differences between the Clone Wars, Legacy and Saga Legends cards the difference was really clear.  But looking at them on the pegs?  That's a totally different story.  And that black tag on the top of the TLC cards?  It makes the TLC figures even more difficult to find.

But I think we're going to see a very clear difference between the CW figures and the Legacy figures.  And I think that difference may be as drastic as what we saw when the first Clone Wars line was running back in 2003 concurrently with the Saga line.

If they do a style of card similar to the old Kenner figs that would be great.  I like doing a little throwback style but as long as they aren't similar to the Clone Wars it is all good.  It is really hard to tell the difference at first glance, of course the stores I go to the figs are all mixed up anyway so you still have to hunt through them anyway.

It's got the potential to be more eye-catching than what we're seeing at retail now.  It's certainly more distinctive.

But the thing I'm really wondering about?  The new Legacy packaging.  Rumor has it that it's supposed to be more like the classic Kenner packaging.  At least that's what has been circulating at some of the forums.  And it sounds like there are going to be very clear differences between the packaging of both Clone Wars and Legacy.  That's welcome to me.  Especially since it's not completely easy to pick out the differences between Clone Wars basic figures, TLC basic figures and Saga Legends figures.

There was a point where new packaging meant something but with so many figures produced and the relative ease in finding them and the repacks it just doesn't do anything for me anymore.  I wouldn't care if they sold figures in plastic baggies to help keep the cost down.
