So we are about 2 months out. What are people thinking? Iron Man 2 was a decent hit but the Thor and Captain America releases that followed didn't fair so well. Then Avengers Assemble blew up. Are people pre-ordering cases? Or is everybody waiting for the 90 day price lock to end before they invest heavily?

I took an initial pass on this one, but I may circle back around on it.

I think it all depends on who they get to sign autographs. Also, I wonder if the costume cards will have duals and triples like in Avengers Assemble?

It looks like it has the potential to be great, of course the pre-sale prices seem a bit higher than normal, probably because people hope it will be like AA.

I was planning on getting a box when the pre-order price was lower, but I changed my mind when the price went up. It's just not worth it if you don't get an auto in every box.

the autos they have announced to this point are very weak.

Great, another comic movie set from UD with sketches that have nothing to do with the film, or have no relation to the main character other than being a Marvel property.

UD needs to get some pointers from Cryptozoic on how to do a movie/tv show card set.

It wouldn't be so bad if UD sat down and though about setting some guidelines for artists (or themselves) to follow - guidelines that pertain to the subject matter.

I still can't get over Venom sketches being in Kree-Skrull War. How are Marvel or Disney not policing this?

we can't use any movie versions of the characters in any way nor could we use the settings from the movies. something about different companies owning certain parts of the overall, which is BS as Marvel owned and did the IM movies from Marvel Studios. Now it's a Disney property so it get's worse. This applies to any company using Marvel Licenses.

The autograph list will grow, so hopefully it get's more exciting! In saying that - I have a few cases coming.

I know, which makes it a joke to include sketch cards in these sets. If you can't tie a chase card into the movie, it shouldn't even be considered for inclusion. Put more into the other inserts, like the autographs and memorabilia. Make them extra special.

Makes lots of sense to have a drawing of Hercules on a card with an "Iron Man 2" border.

I hope you're right Byron, but there were only four autos in IM2. The key is whether this ends up more like AA or IM2 both in terms of autos and wardrobes.

Thanks Tim. I'll try to keep the opening post updated as autos are confirmed and with some images when they become available.

Anybody feel free to post and I'll update the opening post accordingly. Hopefully this thread can be full of some good info and some great opinions. Off to a good start so far.

Cryptozoic needs to get some pointers from UD on how to get more diverse and "industry" artists for sketch cards.

UD's Avengers Assemble and Premier were huge successes in my book. The other sets had their ups and downs but pretty much all of them had amazing sketch artists. Props to UD for getting industry professionals.

The issue with UD is wild costume diversity and usual lackluster autos. If they can stabilize those inserts, more people would feel safe with their buck and the cycle would continue.

Yes, I think UD's sketches and Crypto's autos would make for a GREAT combo.

Does anyone have any more news on the signers list? Looks like Shane Black (director) has signed.

I wish Rittenhouse was still making these cards. They did such a fantastic job of making the cards and landing the big names for the autograph program. This is the card I pulled from Iron Man back in 2008:



From my own personal perspective, it's awesome to think that this card will hold its value because he won't be signing any more but from a hobby perspective, it SUCKS that UD can't land a big star like Downey to sign for their cards.

Agreed hands down best iron man set was the first one by rittenhouse. Nice wardrobe pieces, actual movie related sketches, and of course the top names in the movie.

I really don't see the point in an Ironman release if they don't have an auto from the main star of the movie.
