The Hobbit Trading Cards Coming from Cryptozoic

The Hobbit Trading Cards Coming from Cryptozoic

When the new Hobbit film released late last year, a lot of collectors were disappointed that the only trading cards for the film were found at Denny's restaurants. That's about to change. Cryptozoic announced they will make trading cards for the entire Hobbit trilogy over the next couple of years.

The first set of Cryptozoic Hobbit trading cards are slated to come out in early 2014 and will be based onThe Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Sets for the upcoming films,The Hobbit: The Desolation of SmaugandThe Hobbit: There and Back Again won't be released until after the movies are out in theaters. This should help ensure the sets cover all of the story and not be limited to pre-release images and partial storylines.

Topps handled the first Lord of the Rings trilogy with several hugely popular sets. These included a pair of releases for each film, an all-encompassing Chrome set, Lord of the Rings Evolution and a pair of art-based Lord of the Rings Masterpieces sets. Autographs, memorabilia cards and sketch cards all played a major role in these sets.

Cryptozoic has already produced a board game based on The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
