Thanks for posting this! Nice to see where the sketches come from! I even see part of my puzzle in your shots (the brain piece)! No sign of my "SpaceRat" (I was lucky to pull that myself from one of my boxes!) in the making!

Yes.. looking into the opened pack you can see the "bow" to it before you pull it out.

Yeah. It made drawing puzzles and inking a bit tricky.

From my experience, it seems some are worse than others, but yeah there's a slight bend. Though not nearly as bad as RA's Bronze Age, if you're familiar with that set.

They were like that from the get-go. It was probably the gloss on the back.

First, thanks aggie for that great analysis. Very helpful.

Second, we would never put something out in the next 6 months. For starters, we'd have to start... last week.

I'm more looking at next fall at the earliest-- possibly Spring '14. Not sure this is even a 12-month product, and it's certainly not a twice-a-year brand.

I'd be a lot more interested if it was 18+ months out quite honestly. Just way too much product floating around already, between Invasion and Heritage.

I agree--every other year would work great for this line IMO.

I think a 16 month gap is more what we're looking at, at most.

yeah Ted, that's it exactly...the printing and UV coating of card backs is what creates the bend...if the whole card was coated it would "cancel out" the warping...

best trick to getting rid of warp and not doing any damage to the cards surfaces is to lay all the cards on a few sheets of clean paper. then take a few more sheets of clean paper and use a sponge or damp cloth and wet the sheets of paper. Lay the damp sheets over the the cards. the cards should be art side down. after laying the damp sheets on place some flat heavy objects on top like books or like I do, sheets of bristol comic boards. let sit for about 1-2 hours until completely dry and the warp will be gone. I do this when I do a lot of watercoloring and it hasn't failed me yet. Don't soak the sheets just dampen.

The addition of moisture allows for the paper to contract. The UV coating restricted the expansion.

Thanks for posting this! Nice to see where the sketches come from! I even see part of my puzzle in your shots (the brain piece)! No sign of my "SpaceRat" (I was lucky to pull that myself from one of my boxes!) in the making!

...thanx Again Arch!...I may have a shot of the "spacerat" in progress in a digifoto, but here is a pencil to kolor side by side comparison...

...understanding that the majority of collectors on this forum LOVE puzzles and headshots...(I pause here to allow time for cries of outrage and a variety of boos and hissing)
...I recently spotted this complete 4 card "image" of mine up for sale on ebay...
...the scan posted was so lacking in kolor accuracy that I decided to post this, closer to true kolor, scan for the reference of the(extremely rare) die-hard collector of puzzles/headshots!!!;^)
