Default Game of Thrones: Valyrian Steel releases in August?

I got this as a case topper and have heard nothing about it. I guess it's a special edition product coming out August, 2017? Anybody else have any info on this?

Probably will just be a metal card release like the case topper.

I was kind of hoping for a premium set put out by Rittenhouse.

First thing that came to my mind was a Game of thrones "Masterworks" style of card release.

Just might be. I went to the 'Ask Steve' thread on Rittenhouse. His response

'More details on Valyrian Steel will be coming soon, but it will be a higher end card set. Base cards will be metal.'

It looks quite nice.

Distributor pricing on this is $112. Any preliminary thoughts based on the information givin? Doesn't seemed to be allocated yet.

Hopefully, this doesn't devalue the autos from the other sets. It has an impressive line up, the King Robert/Ned dual auto would be an awesome pull.

Interesting configuration with 3 packs per box/20 boxes per case. Looking at distributor pricing I would guess SRP will be $40/pack $120/box. The Dubois sketches should be incredible.

I haven't bought any GoT for a while as the later sets had so many minor cast autos of characters I could barely remember. But this set sounds promising so far!

Looks fantastic! Is Debois the only artist doing sketches for this set?

Looks like he is the only one doing the Character sketches. Other artists will do the "regular" sketches

Distributors across the board have this available at $112. The MSRP has to be closer to $140 or so. Can't imagine a simple $8 markup will be the bump.

Personally, this seems a much better go then a $60 or so Season 6 box that will more then likely deliver 2 auto's of a large auto list. For slightly less then double that we get Steel cards, 3 hits and some much better odds at better names and sketches/costumes. Def going to snag a case of this stuff..

And agree the Dubois sketches should be pretty crazy.

loving the sound of this, the dual characters are also well done, as they should be matched together, instead of seemingly random pairings like some of the other sets do.

Definitely looking forward to this, wonder if they will do an archive box like they have on the other sets?

There was a 10 case incentive but I don't remember what it was..

From the info:
Quote:
The Base Platinum Metal parallel is not found in packs, and instead, the full 100-card set acts as a 10-case incentive.

I do agree that the MSRP should be in the range you mentioned but RA boxes generally go closer to cost due to the big buyers buying 18+ cases for all of the incentives. Sell boxes/cases at or slightly above cost and make profit off of the incentives.

The only incentive that I saw listed for this was a complete base parallel set (not archive box) IIRC for a 10 case purchase. This looks pretty cool, ordered a case and hoping for no allocations. I haven't done much with RA in the past outside of ST.
