I see what you're saying though Redemption but do you actually own any of them or have you ever held one in hand? I ask because they are VERY VERY thick cards (as thick as some Topps costume cards) and that is why the motion on them is so so good. However I imagine that is another reason why you wouldn't see an entire set like this; they are probably expensive to manufacture and would probably create difficulty when packaging eg. you'd probably only get two carads in a pack! Unless of course the cards were made thinner but then some of the quality would be lost as a consequence.

I think less is more with these groovy cards (IMO).

Those sound like some Marvel motion cards I have that are superthick and made of a harder material.

RA has done some fantastic motion cards. I'm not complaining about the quality of the cards. I just want more. Big Grin

Oh I know you're not, I just don't think motion cards of Artbox's quality given their size would be practical for a full release.

You won't be disappointed, no scan could ever do those cards justice.
