The Ultra Rare card is one of a numbered set of three, where one came with a magazine, one came with the subscriber-only tin and one with this magazine. The subscriber-only tin is identical except that it was not sealed, nor had a sticker on it, and the Amy foil-signature card is instead of the Rory foil signature card. The "autograph" cards are nice, but they are not traditional autograph cards, merely a foil facsimile of the character's signature and not even the actor. The one with this tin is "signed" Rory Williams. If you are going to complete a set, this is the only direct means of getting the Rory card.
The tin should hold up to 400 cards. It is a nice design and the Silence images and the lid text are slightly raised to the touch.
The cards are part of Doctor Who Monster Invasion series 2, subtitle "EXTREME" although for some reason the word does not appear on the tin. It is different from the series 1 tin which features three daleks. The cards in general are nice with the Rare cards probably being the best because of the amount of silver-foil along with the Ultra Rares which have holographic-silver foil. The super rares are similar to the commons and have no foil. The three magazine/tin specific Ultra Rares have gold rather than silver foil.
There is a risk, with these five packets, of doubles and even triples as I found with mine. For that reason it gets four rather than five stars.
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 (I ordered the one offered by The Works). 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
-1 super rare 3D card
-1 ultra rare card (not the bonus card)
Only two cards were repeated and one of the repeated cards was a rare one :S.
The ultra rare Rory Williams card is nice; I just wish that you could get the other autograph cards... The rare cards are shiny and 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 ultra rare card is similar to a rare card except the background, stats and edges are even shinier. There are some cards in the set that are related to the Sarah Jane Adventures and there are others that are `alien slamdown' cards. This means that you can connect them with another card to compare their statistics (a bit like Top Trumps).Read more ›
