Card images you think could have been better

Postby subzero » Wed Nov 15, 2017 12:22 pm

I often look at my Luke Jedi MOC and think they could have used a much better image, Luke wielding his green saber just screams ROTJ to me, why they didn't use that kind of baffles me. What do you think and what other card image for another figure do you think could have been much better?

The TIE Pilot card.

If you can't find a picture Iif the character then at least show the FRONT of his vehicle, ffs. Like they did on the Trilogo eventually.

Luke Bespin. A great figure is let down by a bland card image.

Which one of the three don’t you like? They featured almost every shot with him in that clobber in the end!!

These two, particularly the one on the left - just don't find them that exciting.

I feel the same about the top two, the image of him pointing his gun is better but I still ain't too keen on that one either. I think this one facing Vader would have been a lot better, but maybe they didn't use one showing his saber because they had to produce a yellow one :lol: ...
