So I purchased two. boxes this year, thus far. Well, check that. I purchased the master set of cards 1-350, and THEN two boxes (cuz you gotta have them minis and a shot at something really special, right)?
I won't linger on the base, nor will I show any of them. I have already decreed that the base set looks rather bland and boring and seems to be a step back from previous sets. The pea-green just created a bleek atmosphere for the images and drags down the entire set. Just imagine a box of chicle and how awesome that set looked because of the explosion of variety and colors! Not to be found here.
But really, it's all about the mini-sets and the hidden subsets, and the case-hit sets...oh my.
Starting off with the dinos! Love them, though of the four of these I have only heard of the Spinosauras, and I still really have no idea what I am looking at with the dilophosaurus. These are pretty cool though. I am pretty sure the ginter code is hidden in the rocks!
World animal set! hmmm.....animals are cool and all, but I am not sure that I am digging these as a concept. Animal mug shots. I am pretty sure that the Kangaroo is hiding a Ginter Code clue...
These Sailors of the Seven Seas are ROCKIN! Very cool cards. I definitely am in to collecting these and the much more hidden Saltiest Sailors collection. I think the dragon might know a thing or two about the code...
Wordsmiths are pretty cool cards, though not exceptionally exciting. It's cool to snag a Bill Shakespeare though...and I can even understand the writing on the back!
