"A Fullmetal Alchemist TCG card has hit a new high on eBay; a Roy Mustang, Master Manipulator topped $100 in an auction that closed last week. The previous record was $91 for a Lust, Femme Fatale chase card in an auction that closed in September. Fourteen Fullmetal Alchemist TCG cards have sold for $50 or more since the game's launch in August." - ICv2

...Wow. That's a lot of money to spend on a card. @_@

What's really sad is these people most likely don't actually use these cards for playing... they just frame 'em and hoard them away... -_-;;

Yeah. I've bought some of the cards and the game is pretty fun to play, though I don't think it's very suited to a competative/tournament sort of environment. It has the most wonderful crack potential, though.

I have a foil Eyepatch card. You have NO idea how much I laughed when I opened that pack and found that in there, considering what theme deck I'd bought.... XD

"I put the eyepatch on my Alphonse Elric to up his blindness by 5 points!"

What theme deck did you buy that contained the eyepatch card?

I would assume that'd be a deck with Mustang. >_>;

Well, it could possibly be a deck themed towards Furhrer Bradley! ^^ He has an eyepatch too! (In fact, he had one first!)

Actually, that generally isn't the case, as the cards being so good in gameplay is usually how they get so damn expensive in the first place.

(There's a certain type of MTG tournament play that's basically dominated by the people that are willing to fork over THOUSANDS of dollars for a set of rare out of print cards known as the 'Power Nine'.)
