It seems bizarre that so many sleeves are being released for a non-existent game, don't you think?

There are several Star Wars card games you could use these for

or wait for the new FFG one

or use them for a non Star Wars card game.

 The problem with these new ones is that you can't easily get all three movie sleeves because you'd have to constantly re-sleave your cards. I think the A New Hope sleeves look the best . . . not that these are new images or anything.

You'd choose  A New Hope over bikini-Leia?!

I dunno. I think the Lightsaber sleeves would fit nicely over an AGoT deck featuring House Stark.

 I got some of the previously released ones.. Yoda is nice. I like the movie trilogy sleeves. 

Does Force Lightning imply pvp…or hokey sleeves for an encounter deck?

I would say it implies no more than the Darth Vader sleeves did.

Darth Vader > Powder cosplaying as Emperor Palpatine.

I don't see how this makes a difference. They're both villains, and as such would be equally appropriate for sleeving a Dark Side deck in a PvP game, or an Encounter deck in a Co-op game.

Fair enough. Star Wars sleeve options should be nearly limitless, assuming the game itself is good. I'd be a fan of some Jabba sleeves, or better yet.. Salacious Crumb sleeves.. or best yet…Lando sleeves. Winning with style.

I'm pretty sure I'd like the "movie" sleeves a lot more if they didn't feature the logos for their respective films. The artwork would stand better on its own IMO.

I guess what I'd like to see the most would be art featuring Luke and Leia, the Skywalker siblings, with maybe a ghostly image of Vader in the background.

Looking at the Lord of the Rings sleeves released, they produced some with Nazgul on, but that's still a co-op game. Just throwing that out there, make of it what you will, etc

The bottom line, I guess, is that FFG Sleeves are first and foremost a way for the company to make more business through their licenses. It doesn't mean the sleeves have to match the deck they're for. In other words, you don't have to be playing Star Wars: The Card Game to use Star Wars sleeves, or Call of Cthulhu: The Card Game to use Call of Cthulhu sleeves, et cetera. After all, sleeves featuring A Game of Thrones characters come in packs of 50, but you need at least 60 sleeves in order for your matching deck to be tournament legal (plus 8 if you're counting the Plot stack and House card). Kind of a jerk move if you're expected to only use those sleeves for Thrones.

Fun fact: a couple years ago I sleeved a "Hentai" theme deck for Legend of the Five Rings (which uses two decks of 40 cards each) with a pack of FFG's "Summoning" sleeves.
