Batman v Superman Magentic Metal Cards

Taking a look at the Target card isle (which had been missing in action for a few weeks from my favorite Target as they installed some self checkouts where they trading cards used to be) I was surprised to see what looked like Batman v Superman cards. I hadn't heard any news about a card set for the notorious film and after getting a closer look, sure enough, they weren't cards but metal magnet cards instead.


You get one metal magnet per pack at a rate of $1.99 each. Parallel foil cards fall every four packs but scanning the wrapper I was sort of at a lose as to what exactly I would be pulling. 


The pack wrapper only highlights two designs but I have to imagine there are at least 10 different ones. Thankfully, there is a guide packed into the wrapper that is a visual checklist. Some look like propaganda posters and some are just interesting logos and it looks like you can pull a Wonder Woman magnet as well. 


Here's the opposite side with some more designs. I wish they would have given us an idea what the limited edition foil versions looked like as I doubt I will ever see one in person. 


And here is my magnet, a Batman "Vigilante Justice" that may or may not be Ben Affleck in the suit. It looks like it could just be a basic Batman design instead.


And I think it fits in nicely on the fridge.

I like the magnet. I haven't seen them, but haven't looked to see if they would be in any stores in Canada. I may buy a pack or two for fun if I see them. Magnets are always useful on the fridge.

A buck 99 for a nice fridge magnet is not a bad deal. I'll look for these, thanks :)
