When does the Disney Lorcana: The First Chapter reprint release?
Disney Lorcana posted the following statement on their X account on September 1:
Disney Lorcana TCG fans, we want to share the steps we've been working on to get more product into the market to meet demand. [...] Additional booster product will start arriving in North American local game stores in October. We are also reprinting Disney Lorcana: The First Chapter, which will be available starting in Q1 2024 in North America and Europe.
So, expect a restock for US and Canadian local game stores in October, with a full fledged reprint following at the start of next year.
The choice to issue reprints has been met with a mixed reaction from fans. While many are embracing the second chance to get their hands on Disney Lorcana: The First Chapter, there are concerns about what this means for those who purchased the original printing.
There hasn’t been any statement on whether or not the reprints will be marked as second editions, but this choice could have a sizeable impact on the collector’s market.
Where to buy the reprint or restock of Disney Lorcana: The First Chapter?
Major Lorcana stockists in the US include Best Buy, Target, Hot Topic, and of course, ShopDisney.
Meanwhile, Lorcana can be bought in the UK from Game, Argos, Smyths, and ShopDisney UK.
Wherever you are though, it’s always worth checking your local games store first, considering the history of Lorcana releases hitting small retailers first.
How much will the Disney Lorcana: The First Chapter reprint cost?
