Dynamite Entertainment partnered with Bethesda Softworks to release the first-ever Fallout trading card series. These cards were sold in Target, GameStop, Amazon, comic book shops, and more over the course of the last year where they sold out almost instantly. Now, Dynamite is celebrating the sequel series with an exclusive, limited-edition collectors box through a Kickstarter campaign.
Kickstarter backers can get the Hidden Vault Collector’s box, limited to only 600 copies. These include a complete base set of the now sold-out Series 1 Fallout Trading Cards (144 in total), plus 5 foil packs of Series 2 (50 more cards) and 7 exclusive S.P.E.C.I.A.L. cards created only for this package. That’s over 200 trading cards in total.
But wait! There’s more! All Hidden Vault Collector’s Boxes will include two rare items. Bethesda is allowing outside artists to contribute official artwork to the Fallout franchise through a limited number of one-of-a-kind sketch cards. These are exclusive to the Kickstarter campaign and feature artwork from Andy Bohn, Norvien Basio, Miranda Gainey, Rusty Gilligan, Alex Mines, Rich Molinelli, Barry Renshaw, April Reyna, Xinjix, and more.
Nick Barrucci, Dynamite CEO and Publisher says:
The first series was such a success that we knew the Fallout fans deserved something even bigger and better if we went further. Expansions like the Perk cards worked out perfectly, thanks to the mechanics and design of the games aligning perfectly with trading cards. Bringing these exciting collectibles straight to the fans this time around and adding some cherries on top sealed the deal! And it could not be more of a pleasure working with our partners at Bethesda to see this through.
Other rewards for the Kickstarter campaign include the full set of 100 full-color, double-sided Series 2 cards, 100 holographic rainbow foil cards, 48 chase cards showcasing the in-game Perks obtained by leveling up, and 8 ultra-rare RobCo Fun cards. These RobCo Fun cards can only be found once in every 144 packs. You can also snag an uncut sheet of the Perk cards.
The Kickstarter campaign runs through December 20th, 2019. At the time of this writing, it’s already blown past its funding goal.
