I have yet to check out Chikara, but they have always interested me, and I think this is an awesome idea. I hear their is a best of Chikara video on Vudu, available through the PS3, I think I'm going to check that out. I sent a link about this to Mike Johnson at PWinsider. Maybe it will get some more press for this.
Of course my list doesn't include the CHIKARA alumni I'd love to see get cards. Guys like K.C. "Cloudy"Day and Cheech Hernandez, BLK Out (Joker, Rukus and Sabian), Darkness Crabtree, Hydra, Escorpipn Egipcio and of course the always super popular...Dragon Dragon! This set has made me seriously MTFO!
If we can have someone from the alumni section I vote Mr. Zero! Camel Clutch newspaper read for the win ;D

This is really cool news. I would assume that this will take the place of a regular LotF release? At any rate, I think everyone will be super excited for this, and I hope it opens up the door for a color Kaiju set somewhere down the road!
I may be in the minority, not sure, but I'd rather the CHIKARA fed be a stand alone set. I'd like to see their former champs and main eventers with championship caliber and main even stats. IMO, Mike Quackenbush would be a beast in CHIKARA, where as in LOTF he's good, but around a lot of others, and in LWF he's low card talent...but in a CHIKARA set, he should have stats the represent his status, IMO.
Regardless, I'll buy and it is a great venture for Filsinger Games to get their foot in a new market. Congrats to all involved and I can't wait to get the set.
