New Packaging Coming in 2009

The main Star Wars site dropped an interesting nugget today, announcing that sometime this year the Star Wars-brand packaging will be changing. Generally, packaging only changed when the line was being rebooted, much like what happened this summer when The Clone Wars and The Legacy Collection packaging replaced that of the Thirtieth Anniversary Collection. However, for all intents and purposes, we will still see The Clone Wars and The Legacy Collection lines; the base of the lines isn't changing, just the packaging.

So there you have it. No more blue, it's all about red. The line is said to be changing to this design when Season 2 of The Clone Wars debuts, presumably in the fall. You can see the full story here.

Though these mock-ups mean nothing, I guess Commander Gree is confirmed for The Clone Wars line :-D

It probably also means you'll need to re-purchase all the old troopers in the new packaging. Happy (galactic) hunting!
