I'd be amazed if this gets released. Too much time has passed since the initial announcement, and then the first three autos came and went with barely a whimper.

Revelations was a pretty weak release by Inkworks that came between seasons 1 and 2. It is most notable for being the first Yunjin Kim auto, and having a couple of decent guest star signers (Katey...

Why would you bother announcing three low level autos, then nothing for two months? Surely it would make sense to hold them over until you have some bigger names available.

This has been explained on numerous occasions. It is not a Cryptozoic decision, it is an AMC decision.

I can only assume that the lack of news on this one means that they are struggling to get signers. Twelve months from announcement date, and still nothing notable.

There is a recent post on another trading card site outlining why the 2 part sets exist. Essentially it is due to AMC limiting the number of characters that can be used in each release.

So looking forward to this. I thought it might have been quietly shelved when they went more than a year without announcing anything.

Exactly. Why do I care if SMG (or someone of that ilk) signs 10,000 cards, if I just want one for my collection? It doesn't matter one iota to me whether that card is only worth $50.

I have just finished rewatching Arrested Development. It is a phenomenal show.

Not surprising that a card set is on the way given that half of the cast signed for Archer.

I see Cryptozoic have these available on their website for $96/box. Surely that is a mistake as other places are a good $20 - $30 cheaper, including the hosts of this fine website?
