    I don't know if anyone else has been following this but Topps is celebrating 70 years by partnering up with artists who are creating special releases. Toy Tokyo is one of the "artists" which means they are themselves having a bunch of guest artist. All this to say that Secret Base did one of their cards and I think it's pretty great.

    Nice, I like the homage/nod to the kaiju cutaway art.

    I kinda wish someone would build a trading card set around some classic kaiju. And heck, if I am going to go out on a wishing limb, why not have them be toy focused with Marusan/Bullmarks? [though definitely not necessary]. I don't mean playing cards, though those would be cool too, and Ben had already knocked it out of the park already (to bring this all the way back around in metaphors) with his kaiju snap sets; I mean actual trading cards for us nerds to swap, collect, etc. I guess I am old and still like to handle physical things (not NFTs), but that would be kinda cool. Of course, would also require in-person gatherings, which might be a thing of the past as well...

    @ultrakaiju I would be into a card set of classic kaiju toys. For some of the incredibly rare ones, we will likely only ever be able to pick up an image on a paper card, haha.

    Not toys here, but the MTG Ikoria: Lair of the Behemoths expansion had a limited Toho Godzilla crossover. It was only a small number of cards out of a larger kaiju-themed set though that received licensed character art. Still creating real cards for us diehard nerds who use paper instead of software…
