I don't think this one falls under "back by popular demand". Curious to see the price.

There are certain products I just don't get and this is one of them.
Guess I should realize that not everything is geared toward me!

I think there is a bit of a demand due to the prices on the old set. Some of the sketch cards and such are rather pricy. A hobby box for the 2015 set is 99.95 or so still.

Personally I like the insert sets and those audio booklets are pretty neat.

It's mostly geared towards young collectors I'd say as gifts from adults who collect trading cards... or adults who never outgrew dinosaurs. It's a cool concept though with the fossil relics which are pretty damn thick!

Given how e-Pack seems to work, I don't think so.

I think this is a last ditch effort to sell off the product before slashing the price. I like the idea, but as usual ude decided to make it unnecessarily premium, and that wasn't the market.

Bought a few packs of this on the epacks site and pulled a 3D card. The artwork in this set is pretty nice. I could imagine younger audiences really loving this one. Also at 2.99 a pack, not too bad for some light fun.

Bought a few packs and got a sticker and a group 3 3D card, 1:60 packs.

The 3D cards have varying levels of rarity.

1) Herbivores
2) Predators
3) Marine
4) Flying (at 1:360 packs!)

Bought 5 packs then a box. Nothing special asides from a few SP, SSP and 3D cards. Kinda suck that you need to collect 20 to just get a physical card. My 3 yo son is really into animals and dinosaurs so was hoping to just give them to him, but even after a box there's not much to give him.

so for $2.99 a pack you get digital versions of cards they had difficulty moving?

It seems like the Day 1 buzz for this set on the ePack trade forums is luke warm to non-existent. I would have thought there would be a bit more activity given the relatively low pack price.

The set is very niche to begin with so I'm not exactly surprised if it's not getting much of a reception.

I think the idea that it was originally aimed towards younger collectors, then released in a format where you need 20!!! base cards to make one real card would make this a tough sell.

I opened a couple of packs for fun, I can see where this would be a fun set but again, not at 20 base per physical card. Especially with only 4 base in a pack.

I bought I think 10-12 packs over the weekend. This one roared at me, is it a shadowbox?

Awesome hits!

And the box is about 56.99 for these compared to the 99.99 for the 2015 box currently. Though I think I would rather get the box when it's on sale or something just for the guarantee of physical cards~
