In June of 2012, there was a Kickstarter campaign by Brandon Griffith for STUDS trading cards celebrating the many talented builders in the AFOL community. It surpassed its funding goal and a short two years later STUDS will soon be available for the general public to purchase. At 12:00pm on September 10th, dial your browser to BrickStuds.com to purchase your packs. Each Series 1 pack contains 96 base cards and 9 instructions cards. Chase cards include sketch cards from Paul Lee and Greg Hyland, Autograph cards, and custom fig cards.
This is a one-and-done series folks. Once Series 1 is sold out, there are no plans to reprint them again.
