Buffy W O S Question
Dose anyone know what the Buffy Women of Sunnydale promo card D-1 was issued for or by
my presumption is that it was issued by Inklworks to announce that the set had been released
As on the back it has Now Available
Is my presumption correct or was there another reason
Thanks for any information

I believe it was issued with Diamond Select action figure or figures.

The diamond card was DST-1 and featured Anya
The D-1 features Anya and Tara

PCE2008 says it was "inserted with toy figures."

Only place I never checked lol why do I have it
I was under the impression that the DST-1 came with the Palz toy but says Box Topper
So dose that mean that D-1 came with the Palz Toy that the redemption card TFR1 was redeemed for

Yeah, PCE2008 says DST-1 is a box topper in Women of Sunnydale boxes. It doesn't say anything about D-1 other than that it was inserted with toy figures. I don't know much about the Palz figures and don't think I have any of the cards.

I have some of the cards acquired separately from the figures which I know nothing about other than what you can find on the internet. Looking on the internet one thing I did notice is that the DST-1 image seems to be replicated on the Anya and Tara figure packing of the Diamond figures. The Palz listings in PCE do not include either Anya or Tara so what figures was the D1 included with?

Overall when you look at the listings of Buffy cards it is not usual to see cards not part of the box series included e.g. Season One BL1 was included in boxes of Season Two etc. so could both D1 and DST1 have been inserted in boxes?

regards

John

The Palz were a 17 card set released in 2004-05

From what I recall, 2 of them were harder to find as I think that 2 of the toys that had the respective cards were exclusive to certain on line websites

Thanks for the great scans !

Getting back to the D1 card, I am fairly certain that back in 2004, I purchased Buffy action figures from the local comic store that were Diamond exclusives to get a card inserted in them. I don't think they were the Palz cards. Was there 1 card or more than one ? I do not recall

Do you have scans of the 3 Inkworks Buffy cards from the video game ? Those were hard to find. 1 card per video game, and they were random

I don't think I have the video game cards.
Do you know their numbers or how they were designated?

Buffy The Vampire Slayer - Season Six Chaos Bleeds VU-1 to VU-3

An internet search will reveal sets of the 3 for sale

Maybe someone can please post scans ?

I thought I had everything Buffy, but alas I do not.
Weep not for me softly some cards I just don't not got.
The cards that elude me are no longer my quest.
But I got Sarah's auto so with that I'll just rest.

There are a bunch of the VU cards on ebay now if you are interested

Yeah years ago, I remember those being hard to find. I don't recall the price range they peaked at but think it was something like $20-25 a piece. More must have been dumped on the market after Inkworks shut down. A lot of the Buffy promos are easy to get now.

How long did you work on that? It was almost four hours since your previous post but I assume you took a break for dinner and maybe you watched "Jeopardy."

I'm trying to recall if I've ever written a poem about Buffy...uhh...nope.
