Well it was only a matter of time until the folks at WDW beat me to the punch. I have to admit they got me with this one, well played Sirs. Well played…
So it’s official for the 2nd year in a row an exclusive SotMK Spell Card will be offered at MVMCP. This card is an absolute win for me personally being a huge Ducktales fan. I have to say I am very pleased with the cards that were created for this years events. Well done Disney!
For all the details check out the Disney Parks Blog here!
As we first reported last Friday, the Disney Parks Blog did indeed confirm this years exclusive MNSSHP SotMK Spell Card to be themed to The Haunted Mansion! Being a huge fan of The Haunted Mansion I have to say this card looks great, very well done!
Today friend of the blog Jeff Reisdorf was able to quickly test the card before a slight system crash, here’s what he had to say.
While I am sure this card levels up like the rest, it seems that we’re off to a great start! Be sure to tweet us any photos or videos once the card goes live @sotmkblog on Twitter!
With Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party just under two weeks away, SotMK fans are hoping that an exclusive spell card will materialize… I am very excited to say that it will indeed! From what I’ve been hearing this years MNSSHP spell card will feature THE HAUNTED MANSION! While I am not sure which characters will appear, I would expect the Hitchhiking Ghosts or either The Hat Box Ghost. Also the card should read 03/P & feature the sun symbol just as the cards from the previous parties. Expect the card to be distributed in the same fashion as last year, wristband and ticket required no exceptions.
I am really looking forward to this card, heck maybe even the SotMK haters will be after this one.
Hello Everyone! Like most of you I was so excited to put Chip ‘N’ Dale’s Bag Of Tricks to use over the weekend. I was even more surprised to find out I was still playing on the medium level! Here are a few videos showing all of the animations the spell card displays, enjoy!
All those people who called me a liar when I posted the rumor on 8/31… BOO TO YOU!!!
At 6:30PM a horde of SotMK fans lined up outside of a closed Firehouse in hopes to be among the first to receive the “rumored” special edition spell card. And its a good thing they did! What we learned this evening is that the spell card is only available at the Firehouse and a wristband and event ticket are required to obtain the card. In addition to that your event ticket will be stamped as to prevent anyone from getting multiples. As expected they are already popping up on eBay, which is unfortunate but not surprising in the least.
The card is numbered 01/P as to denote the possibility of more special event spell cards and it appears to be a “SUN” symbol. So now we have, Stars, Moons, Planets, Lightning Bolts, & Sun icons.
There is no confirmation as to how many cards they had available this evening let alone for the entire event. Since there was never any official announcement from Disney Parks I expect these to go fast. Good Luck Sorcerers!
As I posted on 8/31 a Limited Edition Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party SotMK Spell Card featuring Chip N’ Dale is going to be released. Early speculation was that this card was going to available for purchase as LE Merchandise but that has since changed. From what I have been told the card is going to be distributed at the Firehouse and a strict one card per person rule will be enforced. A MNSSHP Event Ticket & Wristband will be required to obtain the card. Although I was not given a photo of the card I do have these few details:
Orange & Purple Color
Numbered 1 of 12
On the top of the card MNNSHP Appears
I also believe that the card’s animation will involve acorns or nuts, and I would imagine our favorite chipmunks will be wearing Halloween costumes as well. This card is the first of a series of 12 that will be released at various special events/openings/promotions. Other possibilities include, New Fantasyland Opening, Wreck It Ralph card complete with 8 Bit Graphics & Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.
I will be posting photos on the blog, Facebook page, & Twitter as soon as I have them!
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.
