I know this probably isn't a HUGE story, but it's nice to see that companies actually listen to collectors. McFarlane has done away with the awful clamshell packaging that irritated collectors of their action figure lines. They're now going with a blister card look, which should not only be easier to open, but it will allow them to package the entire figure in their pose. (Sometimes you'd have to assemble a figure whose pose showed them stretched out)
Plus, who doesn't like that retro look? They will also use this packaging for their Halo 3 (Series 2) line. Kudos!
