I just found what looks like a new Disney product, but it looks like it is only available in/from Hong Kong. The set is listed as Kakawow Disney 100 Years of Wonder Phantom. The cards look pretty impressive and are printed in two languages, but I cannot find much information about the set in English. Has anyone heard of this set, and is it coming out in other countries too?This message has been edited. Last edited by: kjb23,

its official licensed product but too overpriced at the moment.

I like the live-action actor cards, especially the Emma Stone "Creulla" and the Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning from "Maleficent". I'll bet that Emily Watson refractor from "Beauty and the Beast" will be highly sought after as a single. I think I saw Ian McShane and Penelope Cruz from one of the "Pirates" movies. Those were pretty cool.

From what I can gather by looking at eBay, reading some online postings, and talking to a dealer I know, these cards are called Kakawow Phantom Disney 100 Years of Wonder. Early on domestic dealers were able to get some product, but then the sales went wild and the case price went through the roof. Most average dealers couldn't afford to order at that point or reorder more, if they had it. So now the cards are drying up unless you go to sellers in China and pay big money.
The product has Disney characters on a base card, a parallel (usually described as a Silver Holo with the same photo, but a refractor type sheen) and also a different design that is called Fireworks. I think there are also some very limited and numbered "faux" signature cards of characters, as well as a couple of other "hit" variations.
The Fireworks of in-demand characters are going for hundreds of dollars, but there are few domestic sellers who seem to have them anymore, and almost none with plans to get them because of the cost. It's up to the card collectors to decide if they want to buy from overseas sources that may be new to them and may be at peak value now.
I have also heard that Disney plans to make more card products to celebrate its 100-year anniversary. Specifically, it was mentioned that something will be coming out in August, but I got no other details on it. So for Disney collectors and card collectors in general, this stuff seems worth watching and maybe grabbing early if you want in.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Raven,
