I used to collect the Doctor Who Battles In Time trading cards so I decided to buy this tin...

Firstly, I am shocked at how cheap this item is. The retail price is supposed to be £9.99 but I managed to buy it for only £2.99. Also, you get 5 packets of cards (45 cards in total plus the bonus one) and a nice tin to keep your collection. This tin doesn't seem to be in the shops anymore but this is probably because these cards came out quite a while ago.

I was worried about getting lots of duplicates, but I wasn't disappointed. I managed to get:
-38 common cards
-5 rare cards
-2 super rare 3D cards
Only two cards were repeated.

The ultra rare Exploding Tardis card is very shiny. The rare cards are not as shiny as the Exploding Tardis card but they contain a code at the bottom that allows you to unlock content on the Monster Invasion website. However, the super rare cards are not like the old Battles In Time Cards (i.e. raised pictures, glow in the dark etc.). Instead, they have a symbol on the back that you use on the Monster Invasion website: when you login on the website, you hold the symbol up to your webcam and a 3D image will be shown on your screen.

The tin is really nice and the daleks are slightly raised. Also, the tin is quite big (7cm x 9.5cm x 16cm) so you'll be able to store loads of extra cards inside it. The tin comes with some foam inside it to keep your cards in place.

I definitely recommend this product as well as the BBC Doctor Who Monster Invasion 2 Tin Trading Card Game (the other Monster Invasion tin which I also bought). The delivery was amazing as it arrived four days early so I would like to say thank you to The Works!

Excellent way to start the monster invasion collection, 5 packs of cards, 1 exclusive card.
The tin is fantasic, with the dalek detail on the lid, and images of the doctor and cards from the set on all the sides. and i got 2 ultra rare cards in this tin. including a 3d dalek card :)

This is a great buy for a dr who fan, who enjoys the current "new" series as the cards dont contain much based on the older series, apart from a few doctors.

Great value for money.the tin alone could set you back £10 at least.5 packs = 45 cards and a rare one inside.i looked up the value of the cards and two total £18... Which is not bad for what I bought the tin for.
