    Since the new wave of Star Wars figures came out in 95 with the orange carded background what would be your favorite to date?

    For me I go with the Classic trilogy look. This card gives more of an authinic feel toward the toy universe.

    I have to go with the Vintage cards. I like the photo of the character from the movie on the card. Which is one of the main reasons I have been getting the OTC Vintage figures, love the retro look.

    My favorite of the modern cards is most definitely the OTC card. After the late '03-early '04 Saga packaging came out, I thought, 'How can they get any better than this?' Sure enough, the basic OTC packaging were even cooler. I really like the feel that it has to the original Vintage line, and I love the grooved bubbles. As of now, I'd rank them like this:

    1. Basic OTC
    2. Saga (Late '03-Early '04)
    3. Saga (Early '03)
    4. Saga ('02)
    5. POTJ
    5. POTF2 (Flashback, CommTech)
    4. Episode I
    5. POTF2 (Hologram)
    6. POTF2 (Freeze Frame)
    7. POTF2 (red card)
    8. Expanded Universe
    9. Shadows of the Empire

    My favorite is the basic OTC, no question. They're
    perfect, IMHO.

    On a personal note, I think it would have been cool
    of Hasbro to use the VOTC style cards, maybe tweeked
    just a bit, for ROTS. Just as GL is introducing
    elements from the OT in EP III, I think it would
    have been neat to have the cardbacks 'Evolve' toward
    the OT look of our (Well, I'm old. I'll say my.)
    childhood. Not sure about those ROTS cards just yet.

    Guess I'll throw in a vote for worst for the POTJ
    cardbacks. An animated Obi-Wan in a Kung fu pose,
    set against a lime green backdrop is not my idea
    of Star Wars.

    OTC is definitely my favorite of the new cards. aside from that, i don't particularly care for the others. POTJ is worst, though, with purple SOTE second (but i don't care because it's EU, so it might as well be different). i'm really not looking forward to the ROTS cards, either. should've stuck with the retro look.
