    So do you have to buy a box to get cards or will they eventually come in smaller packs that cost much less? Also where can I find the stickers? I’ve already preordered the exclusive card bundle.

      @Xander – Single packs should be available, too. Stickers will likely be available at a lot of places, both at hobby shops and retail stores.
