I should think the WWF PSB will have one pane with the miniature sheet design (only bigger), the 10 1st class stamps on two more panes (either 6 & 4, 5 & 5 or 6 & 6 with some duplication) and the final pane will have Machins surrounding a label with the WWF panda logo.

All too predictable - other than being able to guess which Machins they will include. Time for some innovation, I think.
