As usual there have been some wild rumors revolving around SotMK. To be completely honest none of them have been worth writing about until now. Recently I overheard some cast members talking about new cards that are going to be released. Now we’ve all heard rumblings about a vast expansion of the spell card library, but this is not it. I heard there is a strong chance that we will see a limited number of cards possibly 10 or 12 that would be released one at a time to coincide with special events. For example the first new spell card rumored to be part of this series is one of Chip n’ Dale. According to what I heard this card will only be available for purchase to those attending Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party at the Magic Kingdom. The sale will begin at the start of the event and will conclude at the end. Once the event is over, that’s it end of line.
Sounds pretty cool huh? Indeed it does, but it also sounds expensive. In that purchasing a ticket to a special event is required to purchase the card. I honestly believe since the release of the booster packs Disney has now fully realized the merchandising potential of SotMK. With an instant sell out on the day of release, people can’t wait to buy more. In addition to this little nugget of info I would honestly expect a full on surge of booster packs to be released in conjunction with the start of the Halloween party. By doing so this maximizes Disney’s SotMK profits in that if you’re gonna buy some booster packs why not buy the Limited Edition card too. You’re already halfway there. If this rumor is indeed true I’m really excited to see what other cards they come up with for things New Fantasyland & The Christmas Party. Either way the possible release of an exclusive MNSSHP Spell Card has enticed me enough to purchase a ticket.
Will you do the same?
*NOTE* as of 9/9/12 I’ve heard the card will be free to event guests only.
