Check out the first round of questions and answers with Hasbro's Steve Evans.  The topics covered?

-Security of the bubbles on the cardback - Hasbro is working on a cardback finish that works in conjunction with the glue on the bubbles.  They do not want to tape down the bubbles since they think it takes away from the Vintage Collection card's appearance

-Bubble/blister size - There will be three bubble sizes to coordinate with various figure sizes.  And Hasbro is trying to make sure the bubbles do not detract from the cardback artwork.

-Wave 2 of the Vintage Collection is set to hit retail around 8/1 (Young Han Solo, Imperial Deathtrooper, Imperial Assault Tank Driver, and 1 x figure TBA - rumored to be Enfys Nest)

-Wave 3 will hit retail towards the end of the year

-Plans are underway to inform collectors about upcoming releases, but still with an eye towards protecting Star Wars story secrets.  Social media is likely to be involved.

-Will digital face painting (as seen on recent 6" Black Series releases) be incorporated in TVC figures?  Hasbro is continuing to work on this process

-Character selection - Focused largely on new entertainment, but also drawing from the OT, PT and Legends material.

-Unpunched cards - Available for exclusives and figures like the POTF Yakface coming with the Sail Barge.  Not an option for figures going to brick & mortar retail.  Those cards will be punched.

-New OT vehicles are in development for the TVC line.  Playset concepts are in development
