I like the image because we get to see how the characters will look, which is nice. Rey's hair looks a lot better, more action figure friendly lol. Also confirms she keeps the lightsaber?

Isn't anyone else tired of these "Force Fridays"?? The first one was ok but it is becoming increasingly lame each year, like we're supposed to celebrate because you finally put new stuff on the shelves to go along with our black series 01 Finn figures. Give me a break.

I’m not tired of Force Fridays, it’s nice to have at least one day a year where you can guarantee new figures becoming available. It’s hard to claim they are becoming increasingly lame each year when it has only happened twice.
This packaging is pretty boring and uninspired. It was lame in 2010 when they had a very similar look, and it is lame now. Go for a plain black background over plain white at the very least. At least that would say “Space!”

The "fold over" packaging for Force Awakens and Rogue One is pretty annoying and not very collector friendly. You basically have to rip it apart to get the figure out. Plus, bring back the pictoral checklists on the back and get rid of the 5 languages in microscopic print.

I'm with you re: checklists and languages and reusable packages, but I don't think there's a choice re: languages. In Canada, legislation requires French on everything.
Force Friday is mildly interesting to me as a promotional event, but I disdain crowd psychology ("We're supposed to do X because EVERYBODY is doing it?" baaaa) and prefer to order and receive things that I want mint-in-box shortly after they're released, rather than waiting for them to arrive locally at long last only to find them picked-over, fondled and damaged, or simply gone.
Rey looks better in this new packaging, with hair down and what apears to be some kind of Jedi-style blouse.
Addendum: I wonder why the dominant box colors are white and red. White is going to show dirt, but more importantly, the overall look and feel is sort of austere and institutional. I'm surprised that there isn't more use of warmer, more energetic colors like purple, gold, green. Does this suggest anything about the movie? Red is typically associated with blood and loss (unless you're Chinese, in which case it's "auspicious"). White typically connotes innocence. Of course, in the print industry, there's nothing cheaper than white...
