Been hoping these would come out for weeks now.  Anyone know if FFG is planning to make custom netrunner card sleeves?  Right now I'm running clear dragon sleeves (meaning I can't play alternate art cards) and have been holding my breath to see if FFG releases anything.

This comes up all the time. You are less likely to see Netrunner sleeves than other LCG sleeves for a simple reason.

All other LCGs are for established, licensed IPs. Star Wars, Warhammer, Lord of the Rings, A Song of Ice and Fire - all recognisable outside of the LCG. People will happily buy sleeves with Darth Vader or the Stark Direwolf and use them for any game (I often see M:tG cards being sleeved in these).

Netrunner, by comparison, is based in the Android universe, which only exists as a series of FFG games. (EDIT: They also have some novels in the setting). To anyone who doesn't play, they are essentially 'generic cyberpunk' and have inherently less mass-appeal than, say, the Emperor throwing around Force Lightning. So while we might see Netrunner sleeves one day (and I hope we do) don't hold your breath.

For your Weyland Decks: http://legionsupplie...&products_id=13

Available in Red and Blue (go figure):




But those notwithstanding, I really lament the lack of viable Sci-Fi themed sleeves that isn't tied to specific licensed properties. Magic is the 800-lb Gorilla that dominates the market, so if you design a card-game product that isn't at least somewhat viable for a fantasy setting, you're declining to make use of a large customer base.


There's also a very outside possibility that their contract with WOTC doesn't permit them as much latitude in creating tie-in products, but that's pure uncut speculation on my part.

If you want Netrunner sleeves, contact FFG. If you don't ask, their marketing department won't believe there is demand.
