17 card set, 1 autograph, 2 costumes. There is also a sample of the Jay Chou autograph (computer generated, not an actual signed card) and I gotta say the design is pretty awful. Not a fan of giving the actor the bottom corner to sign on. This went from a set I was excited for to an EASY pass.

Yes, especially if you think the Green Hornet movie will be a hit or you think Jay Chou will catch on outside of Asia. This product is very limited so, should the film be any good, it could be like the Inkworks Twilight cards. Maybe. . .
Now here are the negatives; movies that open in January are generally considered dumped at that time because the studios don't like the finished product. And Jay Chou, despite playing Kato, is not a martial arts star at all. He is a 32 year old musician, songwriter, producer, who has done a couple of films. He has sold millions of albums in Asia and makes many commercials as a high priced spokesperson. So he is quite the celebrity over there, even though I never heard of him before.
If that sounds like its worth a chance to you, at least the price reduction makes it reasonable. But I do wonder how RA could make any money on this license when the set price had to be slashed this much?

Does nothing for me either. No way I will touch it without a Rogen autograph in it. Glad I didn't take the plunge before finding out if they high price tag meant that he was going to be included. I don't think this set is going to sell even with the price drop but I could be wrong.

I just placed my order for a little over $40 shipped. Whether the movie ends up sucking or not, you have the second lead actors autograph and a costume card for the two leads for under $15 a piece. That's too good of a value to pass up. And if the the movie turns out great, then it's even better of a value. Kudos to Rittenhouse, we know you tried your best to make this set come together.
