Promo cards and misprints

Post by Yegor » Fri Mar 30, 2018 5:56 am

Hi,

I'm looking for info (possibly even pictures) on the following promo and misprint cards:

SPANISH
Todas las campanas al vuelo Site back misprint
Bosque Viejo Burning Eye back misprint

GERMAN
Orkstadt

FRENCH
Snaga-Hai missprint

LUREOFMECCG special card

The pictures in the excellent thread by Hanksole do not work, so any help is appreciated. In particular, does Orkstadt have the crown symbol? The same for La Puerta de los Trasgos (as I understand, this is also the Goblin-town).
Thanks.

There's several copies of Orkstadt on Ebay at the moment, you can see pics there:

Like in my own copy, there's no crown. My understanding is they're not promos as such. Rather, I.C.E. somehow forgot to print them in the normal MELE run for Spanish and German, so had to do a separate printing and distribute them separately. Hence, they're like promos.

Exactly. The German Orkstadt (Goblin Gate) was included in the German MEAS set which was only distributed as a complete set. Each set, however, had multiple Orkstadts in it (5 if I remember well), so don't pay too much for these ;)

Concerning misprints, I'd recently discovered another German one:

Here's the French Snaga hai card (together with the Dutch version of Lure of Nature, another example where illustrations got mixed up)

Thanks, Khamul.

Now only Spanish misprints remain.
