Rittenhouse rant January 23, 2011

WARNING… the owner of this blog is in bioch mode… you have been warned!!!

Well i was thinking to myself when i saw sample cards of Rittenhouse’s new Complete Star Trek NG  cards coming up in June… OH MY GARSH… they look exactly like the “quotable” next gen cards!!!  What is up with Rittenhouse?!?!  Serioulsy. Ok, so they copied the last set (i think it was Quotable movies) from a Skybox line, now theyre copying the complete STNG from the Next Gen quotable?!  Man, this just makes me so mad.  Ok, its not like the Star Trek line is a gamble where they cant spend too much on pics for their cards (or however they buy the images to use on their cards)… Star Trek is like a no brainer! CMON GUYS!!! Lets get those creative juices flowing here and think of some new things to do with your cards. Stop re-using the same material!  I mean look at how much time is put into football cards and some of those really look nice.  I saw the new promo card for the complete Next Gen and about 25% of the card (a border) is just blank white!  WHA? good grief thats so boaring!!!

I was thinking next of their 40th anniversary cards ( not the Original series 40th but the one with all the captains). I think that was just poorly done.  I mean the stellar part was the costume cards… they really nailed those … but the rest of the set was just a flop.  They did the base cards with just about the four captains. Now thats not right. What i think they should have done was done 1 card per character of all of the series (with info about that character on the back… i mean its not like there arent fan sites out there with tons of info on each character… of course they cant plagerize those sites but you can still get info and just state the info).    Insert card wise, i think they should have done some tribute cards.… yes i know they did tribute cards to Mr Doohan but theyre like IMPOSSIBLE to find.  They should have had those as regular inserts.  I will say the TV guide inserts were nice and an interesting touch. Other inserts should have been maybe cards of the ships (and space station DS9)?  But all in all i think the base set was just rushed.  I mean i know they have done Voyager profiles and TNG profiles but… well i think when its a 40th anniversary it should have been about ST as a whole.

sigh… oh well…  on to card of the day! 🙂 Just an insert but i just love the picture of this guy… its an old school Skybox insert (a gold card from one of the three seasons of the OS)… and for some reason the gold side wont load… but this side is nicer so hope you enjoy! 🙂
