Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

Turns out Hasbro had been in the process of changing the packaging for the Vintage Collection's Kit Fisto but the altered cardback never made it to production.

The VC29 Kit Fisto figure comes on an Attack of the Clones cardback with a photo from the Battle of Geonosis, but the figure is based on the actor and the character's facial appearance in Revenge of the Sith. Collectors and fans noticed this and told Hasbro, who went through the trouble of designing a brand new ROTS cardback for a rerelease of Kit, but plans were cancelled at some point and the changed packaging never saw the light of day.

The only evidence that the alternate design exists was the cardback reverse of a later production run of the VC31 Obi-Wan Kenobi from Clones. Check it out. Interesting. I think I would have liked the Sith version better than the one we actually got.

The one that was actually produced and made it to retail:



And the one that was designed to replace it but never did:
