Does anyone know if this Anakin Skywalker card was meant for Theed Palace?

I saw this card in a post about Reflections Gold.

Was it meant to be released in the Theed Palace set (because of the set icon)? If so, any idea why they changed their minds?

I always thought it was because they didn't want to have the game let players target a child with weapons.

It's just weird that it has the Theed Palace icon instead of the Reflections Gold icon.

It’s a good catch, that icon certainly sets it apart from the rest of the Gold set.

Wouldn’t be surprised if it was originally intended to be in Theed, but got kicked down the road - either due the concerns Ming brought up, or gameplay issues with Vader/Anakin personas, or both.

So they blanked whatever text it originally had, and decided to give it to the PC as a “virtual card” in Ref Gold, but never got around to updating the icon before the plug got pulled on everything.

All speculation though. Interested if anyone can confirm that for sure.
