2014 Cryptozoic The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Trading CardsBrand: Cryptozoic
2014 Cryptozoic The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey trading cards kick off the latest epic trilogy from Peter Jackson. And while they weren't made in time for the film's original theatrical release, if it goes down like Jackson's Lord of the Rings, it shouldn't matter because the film will be timeless.
The base set recaps the film as Bilbo Baggins joins the wizard, Gandalf, and 13 dwarves on a quest to Lonely Mountain to reclaim their kingdom from Smaug, a vicious dragon. The first part is just that, the beginning of a long journey. But that doesn't stop them from encountering all sorts of creatures -- friends and foes -- and adventures.
Every box of 2014 Cryptozoic The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey includes one autograph. Art Cards feature original artwork. While exact odds haven't been released, Cryptozoic expects them to be a case hit. Other inserts include foil character cards (1:12 packs) that highlight the major players in the film, and Lonely Mountain Flashback (1:12 packs).
Cryptozoic has plans to release films for all three films in the Hobbit trilogy. Each will release after the film's release. This will allow them to cover the entire film. Often, when sets based on big blockbusters coincide with their theatrical runs, they're limited due to studios wanting to protect against spoilers. Often, some of the special effects aren't fully done until just before release as well. The Desolation of Smaug is expected to come out about a year after 2014 Cryptozoic The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
