2018 Upper Deck Aliens Trading Cards – The Missing Marines!
2018 Upper Deck Aliens Trading Cards – The Missing Marines!

For the first time ever, Aliens gets a designated trading card set! The film has been featured in many other collections and anthology sets, but this will be the first time since it premiered that cards will focus solely on James Cameron’s 1986 sci-fi action/horror masterpiece.

Release Date: 09/12/2018
Product Configuration: 5 cards per pack, 20 packs per box, 12 boxes per case

The base set is 100 story-related cards, while special foil insert cards are designed around the various characters, vehicles, and weapons from the film. There are also Alien Skin cards, which highlight the xenomorph biology, issued in three rarity groups.

Printed on plexiglass, Weyland-Yutani (Space) Corp Business Card inserts come approximately one per box.

The most sought-after chase cards will once again be the themed Actor-Reactor Autograph cards, which come in single-subject, inscription, and dual form signatures.

However, the set is noticeably missing some of the main characters; not only are autographs from some of the stars missing (such as Michael Biehn and Jenette Goldstein), but several of the marines don’t even appear on any of the cards. It’s a shame not to at least have a card for each of the marines; in fact, it’s practically criminal! Gone with the Twins’ critic Mike Massie, having been an obsessed fan for quite some time, designed matching cards for the missing marines, just so that they’re not forgotten. Enjoy!
