Looks like right now you just get it by going to origins and winning a contest of some sort. Hopefully wider distribution someday.

The Space Penguins landed this morning from outer space straight on our booth at Origins.

It is a promotional character only available through IELLO Organized Play.
Win a King of Tokyo tournament, win a penguin!

Super neat does it include evolution cards, but as a single father of a 5 year old that makes this one basically impossible to get :-/

Very disappointed to see Iello only cares to cater for the group of costumers that can make it to events.
thumbsdown

Luckily there are lots of other publishers, creating great games, I can throw my money at.

without evolution cards, what's the point? for those playing with the power up expansions, it sure makes characters like the brocken bear feel out of place and unnecessary.

Enjoy the game for what you have. I will never understand the attitude that if you can't easily buy absolutely everything ever made for a particular game that you will not buy the game at all. Extreme OCD?

I'll continue to buy king of Tokyo products and hope to see the Halloween content available on coolstuffinc, but it would be preferable to see tourney winners get say a monster miniature of their choice as its something cool and unique as opposed to a whole character that those of us who for whatever the reason may be cannot make it to such events won't be able to get, new content should always be available, alt art/resin/plastic tokens that kind of stuff should be the limited release stuff, stuff that accents the game, doesn't change or add to it


The Halloween pack is $20 for 2 Halloween themed characters and their evolution cards and that will sell like crazy, the bear and penguin promos could have been easily bundled together and evolution cards added and people would have paid atleast $20 for them, I'd just rather give the developer my money than an airline, hotel and a babysitter for the time I was gone.

That's probably because that is exactly what he is.

Do you believe the Garfield's Gift promo card should be made available as well?

Exclusive promos suck the big one....have no problem with them, as long as they are made available to all after a pre-determined timeframe. Shame on them, they and their Exclusive Space Penguin can eat a bag of $h!7. Game is going into the sell/trade pile now.

To each their own but ridiculous IMHO. It's still a great game and the promo characters don't add anything to it.

Maybe the promo characters, but what about the cards with the special powers?

being as each of those cards was signed and designed so that each one is different that would be incredibly unreasonable, will i dump support for the game over a promo no, would i like to see content shared for everyone who enjoys the game even after a set time frame? ofcourse I would, we are all gamers, or atleast I am, I don't gain pleasure from waving around my King of Tokyo 11 card promo set and going look I'm awesome I have it and you don't! If i had my way they would still be available for purchase on the BGG store so everyone had a chance to have that content in their games.

Yeah, stick it to "The Man" that is a board game publisher by selling it to another company that will give you a small fraction of what it's worth!

I will still play and enjoy the game.
But I will not support a company that does not support their customers. So no further purchases from that company for me. There are plenty of games on the market to allow me to be picky...
