STUDS is a trading card series that profiles the men and women who use Lego to build incredible, original pieces of art.
STUDS Trading Cards
The adult Lego building community is a vital, diverse and interesting world. An alliance of creative individuals, each with their own unique building style, artistic focus and distinct personality. You’ve all seen incredible Lego models in the news and on the Internet - now learn the names and faces of the people responsible for creating the work. STUDS is a trading card set that profiles the men and women who use Lego to build incredible, original sculptures and brings you an close-up view of this fascinating world. Each card has the image of an amazing Lego creation on the front of the card and info about the work and the artist on the back.
Each card will be printed full color on 14pt. Gloss Coated Cover Card stock with UV Coating.
Each pack will contain 8 cards. Chase cards will be randomly inserted, but not every pack is guaranteed to have a chase card in it.
STUDS Base Set
The base set will include all 96 base cards plus the 9 card poster set. The base set will come in a custom set box that will perfectly store the cards.
STUDS Box of Packs
Each pack will include 8 trading cards and each box will include 28 packs. With each box you are guaranteed to get 1 complete base set, 1 complete poster card set, and 4 micro chase cards. There will be 15 Super Rare chase cards inserted throughout the run of boxes. Also look for randomly inserted artist-autographed cards! These will vary from 1 to 5 cards per box.
I am happy to announce the addition of SKETCH CARDS!!! "You can't draw with plastic bricks! How is this possible?" you may ask. Well, among the many amazing builders in the community there are also artists who draw and paint images inspired by the bricks. Greg Hyland and Paul Lee are two of the best! Each of these artists will have a printed card in the base set. In addition, each of these artists will be producing 15 sketch cards! Each card will be unique! 1/1!!!! The 30 sketch cards will be randomly inserted into the packs and boxes of packs!
PACK PARTS from BRICKFORGE.com!!!
Remember buying packs of baseball cards as a kid and finding a stick of gum inside? Well, we are not doing that. However, in that same spirit, STUDS has teamed up with Brickforge to provide an additional card with an attached Brickforge Minifig Accessory Part in EACH PACK!!! That’s right; each pack of STUDS Trading Cards will now contain 8 trading cards plus an additional Pack Part Card! The parts are made with UNIQUE colors NOT available on the Brickforge site.
Oh, and don’t worry about the part damaging the other cards like that pesky gum did back in the day. We have taken extra precautions to ensure protection of the other cards. This update covers all single pack rewards and all 28 packs inside the box of packs.
For those getting the STUDS Base set, there will be a special Mystery Brickforge Pack that will contain 6 mystery parts!
