@Captain-M said in Vivre Card: One Piece Visual Dictionary:
Yeah there's a few gaps in the list on Wano EX-characters already where some of the early Gifters were introduced, so at the very least they're getting their own standalone EX-cards, but I'd also definitely rather see something with enough room to show off their full bodies.
I think that at least Babanuki deserves his own card as he definitely played a larger role compared to the remaining Gifters. If not at least a team card where you have him with Daifugo.
I mean I do understand that there's not really much in terms of text based content to fill a card for each Gifter but if we can milk the series for something ridiculous as All Faces then selling the Gifters would definitelybe the lesser evil as it is a characters compendium that hits a "gotta get 'em all" spot for collectors. Plus the cards are not sold seperately so it's not that much of a cash grab.
On the colours, it seems like the Vivre Cards were made a higher priority than the digital colour volumes, and marketability was king over all, so a lot of the last set came out before the volumes actually got to Onigashima. To market the Vivre Cards while the characters on them were at their most relevant, the colourists must have had to hand in early work for some panels (there's talks in the digital colour thread about the differences and I've been thinking of putting together a panel by panel comparison between the cards and the volumes) and just couldn't get some others done to standard by the time the cards went to print.
I see. Well that makes sense then. But in that case going with just Hacha and having the other Numbers in a later booster would have been a better choice IMO.
It's probably the same kind of reasoning they've used to not give us a dozen packs of just EX-cards to get all the way up to date during the gap. You need a big name character to put on the front of the pack so it'll sell, whether that means shortchanging the bit parts or rushing the colourists.
Yeah, but you also have the Index set that only has four character cards and the rest is index cards and sticker. I actually liked that they did that so it's something they could pull with EX cards too.
Speaking of which, I also would not have had the entire Foxy Pirates be EX cards. Sure guys like Donovan can be EX. But as little as information we have, the guys who actually played a role in the various games should have actual cards. Aside from Porsche every other named FP could be in a group card. Have one card for the Groggy Monsters, one for Capote and Moda and one for Itomimizu and Chuchun. I'm sad that the Davey Back Fight always gets treated as a filler arc.
