Magic: The Gathering Planeswalkers SDCC Exclusive Seems Worth The Hassle To Me

The Magic: The Gathering exclusive every year is one of the most sought-after and hardest to get exclusives on the show floor. It always sells for a ton on the aftermarket, and it is always one of the first to sell out at the Hasbro Toy Shop. This year, the thing is so beautiful that I have to believe that it will go as quick as possible this year.

2017 Magic The Gathering SDCC Exclusive 3

"Magic: The Gathering 2017 Planeswalker Pack"  – $180.00

  • Includes a 24" x 36" screen print of Nicol Bolas illustrated by Brandon Holt. Produced in collaboration with Mondo. Printed by D&L on Magic: The Gathering card stock. Nicol Bolas is an iconic Magic character who first made an appearance in the game in 1994 and has been a powerful fan favorite since.
  • 6 Planeswalker cards with exclusive artwork by illustrator, Vincent Proce
  • Characters include Gideon Jura™, Jace Beleren®, Liliana Vess®, Chandra Nalaar®, Nissa Revane™ & Nicol Bolas™

Now, I have not played Magic in a little bit, but I can tell you that I want this set. It is Egyptian themed, like all the latest sets have been, and the artwork is done in collaboration with Mondo, so you know the quality is going to be there. These are for the hardest of the core, to give your decks some flair. The screen print that comes in the box is also pretty nifty, I think that will look quite good up on the wall.

For those who want this: good luck! Again, this is going to be a seriously tough get, even at that price point. There will usually be some available on Hasbro Toy Shop a few days after the con as well, but they go even faster on there. Lots of people wait for the secondary market, and just pay the mark-up. For cards this pretty, it seems worth it to me.
