    I thought it would take a long time for the cards to arrive (I remember the e-mail sent to me said something about it being 6 weeks), but apparently I just got them today. Will upload some pics of it in action in a bit if anyone wants to see :) .

    EDIT: Here they are. Unfortunately I don't think they work with the Star Pics feature. I tried it earlier and it wasn't working. An extra card with some miscellaneous info that came with these says they are not compatible with AR Games, and are to be used with Uprising when it comes out.

    Sorry about the quality of the other two cards. I didn't realize they were kind of blurry because my nephew kept nudging against me as I was trying to take the pics.

    I haven't got mine yet but I'd like to see what it looks like, if you don't mind. :)

    Gah! I just found out that they (apparently) don't work with the AR feature :( . On the back of a card that comes with the set, it says they are only compatible with the Kid Icarus game. Nevertheless, I'll take pics of the card I got and upload them.

    I never understood why people thought these would work with AR Games, I mean it seems like common sense to me that the KI cards would only work with KI, eh its the hype I guess.

    I just figured you could actually use them in Star Pics. Otherwise it would kind of defeat the purpose of owning them if you don't even have the game to begin with. I'm sort of outta cash at the moment so it would be weeks or maybe even months before I can get a copy.

    Didn't know they came with the game, seeing as I got mine from the Club Nintendo rewards.

    Sadly, it's just a normal shipping envelope.

    According to the info card, it says you make two of them face each other to see them battle. I can't find any other information on what else they do though.

    They just put it in your mailbox. I think the only times they ever knock on your door is if it's something that comes in a box. Otherwise, everything goes in the mailbox if it's just inside a small bag or envelope.
