I believe the Geek Store is the only place to get it. You will probably have to wait till the Geek Store gets more, it's already been in and out of stock several times.

They said they weren't planning to get more. I suspect since the reprint just came out, many people will be looking for this so I am not sure why they decided to stop carrying it.

I doubt that it's a BGG decision. I think that it's being decided by publishers weather or not they print more and/or send more to BGG.
But what I've also read here on BGG is that selling the last batch of cards took remarkably longer than the previous batches.
So I wouldn't be surprised if this would be a BGG decision after all.
I also find it very remarkable that people don't take their chances on these opportunities when they appear. I buy promos of every game I can imagine to buy some day. If I end up not buying the game for whatever reason, then that's bad luck for me .... a few bucks not well spend. If I do end up buying the game, then I don't need to worry about finding the promos afterwards.

Well, it is easy to avoid BGG's fee. You have to wait until Essen, buy a plane ticket to Dusseldorf, go to IELLO's booth, buy King of Tokyo again from them....and then you get the cards FOR FREE!

Nice deal, right? Maybe the flight costs a bit more than the 5$ asked at BGG, but hey! You get to keep both arms and legs

The promo cards should be available soon directly through IELLO's webstore.
We'll let everyone know when it's ready.

I didn't mean the $5 was an arm and a leg. I meant the price sellers are asking for on geekbay/eBay.

Personally, my I don't quite have enough expendable income to do that without feeling it. Also, I dislike clutter laugh

Thanks for the tip. I just got King of Tokyo and I'm in love with it. So I'll anxiously be waiting to get my hands on the promos.

I was lucky enough to get my order in before they sold out, but I felt that charging an extra $2.80 for S&H on top of the $5 was a pretty cheap move. They took them out of the BGG store and basically doubled the price of the cards before S&H (assuming it cost BGG about the same to ship them).

I like getting promos from BGG because I know the profits support them and the prices are reasonable, but by effectively jacking up the price IELLO's motives here seem less genuine.
