The aliens are going electronic on Wednesday.
Upper Deck revealed on Monday that its recently released (and sold out) Alien Anthology product will be coming to its electronic e-Pack platform with insert cards, actor autographs, dog tag cards, sketch cards and more that can be sent to them. The launch begins at San Diego Comic-Con.
“We have been working diligently to be able to announce the momentous release of Alien Anthology on e-Pack at Comic-Con, which brings together some of the most passionate fans and collectors in our industry,” said Jason Masherah, President of Upper Deck. “We strive to bring collectors the most innovative new products, and the release of Alien Anthology on e-Pack allows us to give fans a pack opening experience like they’ve never had before.”
According to the company, those who visit the Upper Deck booth at SDCC will receive a card when they sign up for e-Pack. They’ll also be able to take photos with a life-size alien from the films and appear on their own card from the series.
E-Pack users can get a free pack every day just by checking in and there will be Ian Holm autographs that are only found via the platform — not in packs.
