Sherlock Holmes and the Hound of the Baskervilles

hound-preview

The Hound of the Baskervilles

This new set takes us back on course with the Conan Doyle canonical stories. Perhaps one of his best known and most popular works The Hound is a prequel story that sets the stage for the return of one of literature’s most beloved characters. Published first in 1901 the story was serialised in The Strand and this card set gets back to basics. It brings together many of the original illustrations mixed with new art and information and some spectacular inserts. We have more of what has been popular, sketch cards, autographs, and artefacts from this tale.

Look for very rare Stamps, coins and now Hound Cuts from the true first edition of this story, along with our new foils, magnets and rare parallels! This is one of the best sets we will ever release.  Every pack will come with a complete basic set, two or more chase cards, and at least one premium insert. We are cutting production to just 70 cases worldwide so this is sure to sell out fast. The sets will ship in early February and pre-orders open NOW with a number of options! Link

Cult Stuff Update

It’s been a long year and it’s not over yet. It’s safe to say we have had a challenging time recently in a very volatile market. The short version of events is as follows: We have had our website hacked a number of times, had problems with delays, artist payments, printing, emails ect. along with a fiasco dealing with binders that just never happened (yes we are still working on these and they will be out for the Hound of the Baskervilles set) and debated just shutting down completely, as many others already have. Thanks to a number of very loyal customers and patient illustrators we are fixing all of these issues and will be putting them very much in the past. The site is back up and running emails are starting back up and projects are being completed. If you’re waiting on sets AP’s or products then be aware we are clearing a backlog of these now. I can tell you now we have had major issues, but rather than run away from these we are working to fix them. We have a new product that will launch shortly and that will pave the way for a number of new sets in the 4th quarter of this year and the beginning of 2017. Thanks for your patience and continued custom, every order helps and we will be adding a few freebies for all our late orders and any new ones we receive for the next month, including rare or exclusive promos, inserts, basic or chase sets, proofs or anything else we can wedge into an envelop or box.

Later this week we will release info on our very limited (already printed) new set which will be released and shipping in the next 14 days.

2016 News and Updates!

Happy New Year everyone!

This long post will layout some basic updates a TON of new information about what you can expect from us this year.

All the recent Sherlock Holmes packs have shipped and we have been getting emails from those who have already had the cards. Feedback has been positive, and while the delays are problematic it seems splitting the packs into different sets has been a big hit with collectors. We did scrap a planned Christmas miniset in order to focus on getting Sherlock shipped out to everyone, so if you don’t have yours then dont worry it’s on the way! I hope you all enjoy the unannounced extras we put in including a bunch of cut signatures from some great actors! I have included some images of a few inserts now that everything is shipping!

20160104_101924-1

some of our pack inserted Cut Signatures

20160104_102905-1

From right to left some of the very limited inserts: Coin inset card, Postcard label card, Postcard text card, Numbered Penny Red, London News Cover Foil and London page inset.

2016 is going to be a busy year for us and we are making a lot of changes to the number of sets we release and the way in which we release them. We are producing more sets this year than ever before however we have cut the print runs on a number of them in order to create some very limited deluxe sets. Reducing the print runs will enable us to produce a wider variety of sets while continuing to keep the quality high and hand finish our premium inserts. We will of course still be producing some larger sets as well, and we will be reconfiguring some other projects into more popular formats.

The Sherlock Binders are nearly finished and will be shipping asap, we really are sorry about the delay folks but they all needed new internal mechanisms to make them compatible internationally. That work is already underway.  

 

2016 Sets:

2016 Preview Pack

Our first product of 2016 is one of the rarest, this is a pack of cards including in house designs, previews, variants, promos, proofs and mockups from all our sets this year. The cards included in these packs are very limited, unreleased or are variations that will only be released in this preview pack. As much as I would love to do a lot of these we can only really offer 50 packs because the cards we include are not produced in high numbers. This includes magnetic proofs from several upcoming sets, a blank sketch sample from one of our upcoming sets, a variant sample that was produced for an upcoming cancelled parallel set, and some of our test foil back card along with a bunch of other goodies. 20+ cards many of which will never be released outside of this set and any overprints are being pulped. The majority of our basic and chse set for 2016 have already been printed in part so we have some interesting oddities to include.

We are also including an exclusive Hound of the Baskervilles Memorabilia Promo card that you will not find anyplace else in each pack along with a signed letter detailing some of what you will find in the packs and this year. These will cost £50.00 a pack but they will have a lot of very bespoke hand finished items included.

These will be shipping from the Tuesday the 12th of January and you will find pre-orders can be made on the Product Information Page 

 

Adventures into the Unknown (Vol. 1)

20160104_174056-1

A sample of the final product!

Shipping in January, this set is limited to 500 and more information can be found on the product information pages which is now live. 

 

Sherlock Holmes and Victorian Martians

SHVM 1

Scott Fellows new Strand Cover

This is the long awaited follow up to our first ever release. This limited edition set will merge War of the Worlds with our non-canonical Sherlock Holmes world. The set will feature fantastic art from some of our hand selected illustrators. We pit the Great Detective and a few others from the Victorian era against the villainous murdering Martian invaders!

Due for release in March/April 2016 This product is Limited to 500 premium sets worldwide. 

 

 

 

 

The Illustrated War of the World’s

wotw 6 copy

One of David Days new paintings

Our first War of the World’s releases detailed the original HG Well’s book, this new set removes the restrictions and confinements of that tale and allows an exclusive group of hand selected artists to create lavish War of the World’s illustrations. This new art is no longer limited to Victorian time period and the results are fantastic. With basic cards from David Day this set is limited to 500 and every set includes a sketch from one of our top artists. This set it tentatively scheduled to be released at the same time as our Sherlock Holmes and Victorian Martians project however this is subject to artist scheduling and may be subject to rescheduling by 30 to 60 days.

 

Sherlock Holmes: The Hound of the Baskervilles

 

HP1 Front

This is a full release and will detail one of the most popular Sherlock Holmes stories ever published. This was the first new story after Sherlock’s apparent death in “The Final Problem” and while it was a flashback story it remains one of the most memorable in the cannon. This 27-36 card basic set will cover the book in great detail, with a host of sketch cards, artefacts, autographs and first edition cuts added into the mix! Limited to 100 cases and shipping in July. 

 

 

 

Later in 2016:

We have some other sets in production including Aly Fell’s own art set  “Fell’s Belles” and a follow up to our popular Military Propaganda posters series. We will also be making substantial changes to our WWI War Illustrated sets. We will be combining a number of WWI related projects into a single unified set later in 2016 early 2017. Logistically and artistically it was proving very difficult to produce a small set every year for this, the artists found researching one one specific year’s events to limiting and finding artefacts that could be dated to just one specific year of the war was proving to be not only difficult but far more time intensive than we could justify. By creating a larger set that covers a longer time period we alleviate almost all of these problems which will mean a much better product for the collectors and a much more pleasant creative experience for the Cult-Stuff staff!

In addition to these sets you will also find us hard at work on the first of our line of card games which we hope to have available in the next 18 months.

 

Cult Adult Logo 2

Our Contemporary Erotica set will be released this year through our Cult Adult brand, more details about that set can be found on the Cult Adult website when it is updated in mid January.

US Distribution:

We have had a fair amount of trouble with our US distribution and I am pleased to say we have been working on a solution to this and we will now be using MHoponHop to help us ship cards within the USA which should cut down on a substantial amount of missing and delayed orders. You can still order directly from us and you will get all our exclusives but if you are in the USA your shipping will arrive via a US carrier. This will also apply to our US wholesale customers who have had a very hard time obtaining our products. I would like to offer specific apologies to Sci-Fi Cards and Enigmazip, we are getting it sorted guys. This new process is being phased in this year and we really hope it will benefit everyone involved.

Sherlock additions and release date!

Sherlock Holmes the Long stories has as many of you know been delayed for a number of reasons. The biggest hurdle we had to overcome was lack of inserts. A large number of sketch cards went missing and we had to recommission many of them. Art takes time and we knew we had to wait. Rather than leave the set be we decided to make some changes. Now you will find this is a 36 card set rather than 27, we have increased the content and transformed it from an A and B pack set. The Sherlock Holmes the Long Stories has now been split into “A Study In Scarlet”, and “The Sign of Four” packs. Each pack will contain an 18 card set however they will both share the same 10 card chase set and the sketch and inserts are still mixed at random. Each case will include 5 of each pack type. In short we have rewritten parts of the set and increased the card count, and added new premium inserts. None of these changes will increase the price and the set will be released on the 21st of November at the  NEC MCM Expo show! All orders will be filled in the following days, and for those ordering binders your cards will be out just after as we wait for the final folders to be finished.
