:lol: exactly what I thought about.

I don’t really care about animation backs anymore since other decks like the Fantastique and Mechanic decks already had them. Plus, those animations are better than that of the flywheels.

Overall, I’m just not really impressed by this deck. The only thing that I really like about these are the limited print run of 250 each, but it’s not enough for me to purchase them.

I think it's kinda cool. If he's not gonna blow us away with spectacular designs then at least he's trying new things. Being progressive is the only way he's going to continue making money in this business and it's still working for him, obviously.

I think he's just trying to pay off his new toy. Yeah they were $15 a deck so he went easy on the cost but this is lazy work for him. Push yourself JR as you say drawing is your passion.
Move on, nothing to see here.

Exactly what is new and progressive about this deck? Handmade letterpressed tucks have been done before. Animation incorporated into the back design has been done before, and much better than this basic animation. All this deck showed was that Jack$on still has 250 fanboys that will snatch up anything he puts out. If anyone really likes this mediocre design, than all they have to do is wait for EPCC to release the remaining 1500 decks they printed at a much lower price without Jack$son's arts and crafts tuck project. If you like the animated backs, go get the Fantastique, Mechanic, or Grotesque decks.

I am a bit surprised this sold out. I guess that is great for him. I didn't see anything inspiring in this issue. The limited release I guess is fine, but as has been stated, there are other printed decks out there that need a home. Anyway, this was a pass for me. If it starts selling for crazy prices and becomes the next Red Fontaine, I am still passing on it.
