- SPECIAL BONUSES:
==> As a special bonus for collectors some of the hand-drawn sketch cards that are also being used as case loaders have been randomly inserted into packs.
==> Inkworks has also just announced that Lance Henriksen (Weyland), star of Alien, Alien3, and Millennium, has graciously agreed to autograph cards for the ALIEN VS. PREDATOR release. This autograph was not originally planned as part of the set, but was worked out with Mr. Henriksen at the recent San Diego Comic Con. These autographs will be signed on a base card from the set, but will each be embossed to certify that they are authentic Inkworks autographs. Cards will be shipped to retailers based on qualifying AVP orders and previous AVP shipments. Retailers should contact their distributor or the Inkworks sales office for more details.
