Kickstarter: MST3K Trading Cards Series 2

Richard Parks of RRParks CARDS has launched the Kickstarter campaign to fund the Mystery Science Theater 3000 Trading Cards Series Two. Series Two picks up right where Series One left off...with cards based on original seasons four, five, six and seven (plus a special subset covering the KTMA episodes). Series Two sees the end of the Joel era and the start of the Mike Nelson era...the end of the TV's Frank era and the start of the Pearl era.

The series will feature over 500 cards to collect, with various subsets, such as:

  • 118-card "Invention Exchange" base set (every invention of seasons 4, 5, 6 and 7 episodes of the show)
  • 78-card "Experiment" base set (every experiment from those seasons)
  • 47-card special subset featuring MST3K iconic mini movie posters from the Shout! Factory DVD releases
  • 99-card 'Riff It' subset featuring a scene from a movie featured on the show along with a hilarious riff
  • 36 different Anaglyph 3D cards (with 3D glasses)
  • 22 cards featuring the KTMA episodes
  • 9 different Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie 'promo cards'
  • 63 Sketch Card Artist Gallery Promo Cards
  • BONUS mini-clipout card panel BOX TOPPER
  • 24-card limited edition Macarie Claudiu MST3K art card series
  • 9 different GLOW IN THE DARK Mystery Science Theater 3000 trading cards
  • Genuine, unique printing plates
  • Unique original art 'sketch cards'
  • Unique 'Faux Film Cell' cards
  • 9 different Full Metal box topper cards

So...if you want everything, back at the $160.00 level. A full box, with 40 10-card packs, is available at the $75.00 level. And the nice thing...these are expected to begin shipping at the end of October 2018.

This project will be funded if it reaches its goal by Monday October 1st 2018 at 1:01AM ET.

As I say with all Kickstarter projects I post about. Remember...this is not a pre-order. There are many instances of crowd funded projects that have been funded never making good on their promised goods. So back all Kickstarters with caution. (I've backed several RRParksCARDS Kickstarters and have received everything with little/no delays. And I'm backing this one.)

Ghostbusters: The Card Game

The folks from Albino Dragon and Renegade Game Studios have teamed up on Ghostbusters: The Card Game. Available this fall, it is currently available to pre-order for $20.00. The game is for 2 to 5 players and features over 100 cards. (Estimated playing time is between 20 and 30 minutes and it's for ages 8+)

Ghostbuster: The Card Game is described as such: "Compete against your friends and family to collect ghosts from the Ghostbusters universe. You’ll call upon your favorite Ghostbusters to help you set your ghost trap and capture the highest point ghosts on the board."

Kickstarter: Sharknado Official Collectible Trading Cards

RRParksCARDS has announced his (Richard Parks) latest series of collectible cards. There's currently a Kickstarter Project to fund the production of the official Sharknado Trading Card Series. In cooperation with The SYFY Channel and The Asylum, the project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Friday, August 31st 2018 at 11PM ET (it's already surpassed that goal). 

This is the first series and it features Sharknado and Sharknado 2 (series two will feature Sharknado 3 and Sharknado 4 and series three will feature Sharknado 5 and Sharknado 6). There are TWO base sets in this series - the first base set is a 90-card set of Sharknado and the second is a 90-card set of Sharknado 2. And there's a special "Bloody Subset" featuring gooey, nasty scenes of sharkish mayhem (with a special coating so the blood shimmers when cards are held at a light source). Also, there will be a 3D anaglyph 18 card subset, 4 Faux Film Cell cards, 4 different Genuine Movie-Used Costume Prop Relic Cards, 12 Full Metal Box Topper Cads produced by Faerie Metal, 9 Limited Edition Special Commission Portrait Cards with Puzzle Backs, Printing Plate Cards, Sketch Cards, and rare Progressive Proof cards.

There are various funding levels available, but the first one - where you get everything - is at the $160.00 level.

As I say with all Kickstarter projects I post about. Remember...this is not a pre-order.
