The mystery of the missing cards has been solved with the announcement of Skylanders Battlecast, a brand new card battling game for mobile devices that can make use of digital cards you can buy in-game and physical cards that you can purchase at retail.


Quote: Press Release
For Skylanders Battlecast, players can purchase physical card packs at retail, as well as digital card packs in-game. Players will experience a magic moment by scanning cards with their mobile devices and watching them come to life. Additionally, fans can scan two character cards to create animated duels in which players can physically interact with the characters.

The game is due out sometime in 2016 and will be available for "free" from the App Store, Google Play, and the Amazon Appstore. Pricing for the cards has not been revealed.

Dont know if we can really say this solved the cards mistery.

Ok, these are collectable cards which can be used to play the new mobile game but... They don't automatically exclude the legacy ones which came along the figures.

A recent FGTV video seemed to hint at them still being inside characters' packs but I still can't consider it as a proper confirm either.
After all, if they thought heavily changing the bases, modifying the artworks' backgrounds and tweaking the logo would have been good ideas it isn't too unlikely they touched cards too...

Seriously, I genuinely feel like this entire franchise is only about making as much money from kids as possible. Yes, yes, I know that's what businesses are for but they're so shameless with it. Hate to be the "back in my day" guy, but don't you miss the days where once you bought a game, you owned 99% of what you needed in most cases?

This isn't part of the games,though, it's just a spinoff. And Starter Packs usually give you 100% of what you need to beat it, though not what you'll need to 100%, if it makes sense.
