    I was going through my TRU reissue boxes tonight and found something odd. I'm sure this is old news, and I'm just getting senile and forgot. Did all the TRU Hoists come with the Japanese collector cards? Not a word of English. Just wondering if this is the norm and I just forgot or what. Thanks.

    Mine did. I thought it was odd of them to include it.

    Yes Hoist was the only TRU reissue with the card. This question gets asked pretty often actually.

    I don't have it handy, but I believe the sticker sheet was also Japanese.

    I really think so.

    what, a hoist reissue or just the card? I cannibalized my hoist for an alt. kitbash, and you're welcome to the card if you want it.

    I'm think sure some of the other reissues had Japanese sticker sheets.

    I was thinking maybe the card was included with Hoist since Takara did not do a Bookbox reissue of him? Although, there was not a Takara reissue of Grapple and he didn't come with a card so I don't have a clue why we got one with Hoist.
