    Can't wait for these to be released, I collected the Battles In Time releases but cost a fortune. These look far better image wise and will hopefully be more affordable.
    I've already pre-ordered my box from my favourite Trade Card retailer on eBay (howmuchisitmate) they've always looked after me, prices are fair and always have what I need.
    Roll on end of September!!!

    Hmmm. Don't think I'll be picking them up. I've indulged in various collectible card shenanigans in the past but I think those days are gone. Even if you get close to a complete set, they never seem to give quite the same sense of satisfaction as e.g. getting an original piece of work like a soundtrack, novel, model DVD etc.

    Btw, the Time Squad figures are fantastic! Anyone else bag them?

    Borders also selling packs (although they didn't scan - mustn't be on the system yet!). Nice cards but I'm disappointed by the square edges, not good for actually playing with them. Anyone seen the starter pack on sale yet?

    I bought a packet of these Doctor Who Alien Armies and they are briliant, 50p for a packet of 6. And the cards just look brilliant. Just so you all know, there are 260cards in the set, and I am so collecting them, I love the style of the cards, and can't wait to get my next packet of these Doctor Who cards!

    what is the rarest card

    Not overly impressed with these tbh.

    The folder has space for only 144, where there are 260 to collect. The leaves only have openings one end, so are not intended to be used for double facings.

    The graphics look too guerrish, the cards have pointy corners, and are far too glossy. Seems like another cheap cash-in.

    Would have preferred another run of Battles in Time, as they were far superior quality.

    MPK, the folder is to be used double sided so it fits 288 in that way. :)

    I'm in the United States and just managed to grab an issue of Dr. Who Adventures that had the four packs and the LE 10th Doctor card. I'd love to be able to find more of these in the states at reasonable prices.
