Each scene focuses on a brand-new multicolor legendary creature and five accompanying cards in the legend’s color identity. Each Scene Box includes the six cards in traditional foil, art cards of each with a stand to display them, and three set boosters of The Lord of the Rings: Tales of Middle-earth. Preorders for each Scene Box on Amazon looks to be about $40.
