UPDATE: The deadline date to become a member and qualify to receive SUPERDREADNOUGHT RAIL CANNON GUSTAV MAX is now September 30, 2012. Keep in mind this is the deadline date to get a membership. Shipping dates are still to be determined.
We've received a crazy amount of questions and comments about the promo cards, so we thought it best to gather all the information out there into one clean, neat feature.
PLEASE READ the following information, and if you still have a question, then go ahead and ask in the comments section below!
1. I still haven't received my Shock Master yet! Where are you hiding it?!
I checked all over my house to no avail. I then checked under my desk at work, but still no luck! It's probably because we're the editorial office and don't handle card shipping from here.
Shock Master was sent out recently (around the beginning of June 2012), so they are still arriving via mail to our members. If you still have not received your copy by the end of June 2012, and if you definitely qualify to receive this card, write to us at email@example.com.
2. Holy smokes! I got TWO Shock Masters! But...does that mean I only get two more cards for my membership?
No. Absolute not. No way, Jose. A shipping mistake occurred while sending out Shock Master. Members are only supposed to receive one copy of each promo card. Yearly members will still receive three more cards after Shock Master, even though two copies were mistakenly sent out. For future card promos, expect to receive only one copy of each card.
3. If I sign up for SJ Alpha now, will I receive Shock Master?
No! The first card you'll receive is Slifer the Sky Dragon (edit: This holds true as of June 2012).
4. Hey you! Where in tarnation is my Slifer the Sky Dragon?
The answer is quite simple. It's still not out! The first promo card, Shock Master, was just recently sent out to subscribers. Expect Slifer about 2-3 months later.
5. I bought a single issue. Do I still get cards?
No! Only SJ Alpha members who have either paid for a full year or had their print subscription transferred over qualify to receive cards.
6. I'm not sure if I'm a member...
Then we can't be sure if you'll receive cards or not! Members are people who have either paid for a full year's access to SJ Alpha or had their print subscription transferred over. If you're neither, then chances are you won't get cards!
