It was revealed by CBn back in August of ’06 that Rittenhouse was planning to take a different approach in regards to what card sets will be released to tie in with the upcoming James Bond film, Casino Royale, starring Daniel Craig.
A ‘Mega-Bond’ set is planned for release in March 2007–to tie in with the DVD release of the film. It will include many cards from Casino Royale, but also elements from the twenty previous 007 films.
However, a James Bond 007 Casino Royale Preview set will be released by Rittenhouse in time for the theatrical release. It contains nine character cards from the film as well as a Daniel Craig costume card.
The James Bond 007 Casino Royale Preview set is limited to only 500 sets worldwide and can be ordered here for $49.00. It is due for release on 8 November 2006.
