            What to say other than FINALLY.  This set was released 12 years after the last  Update set, that set was for Playmates in 1994 to 1996.    (Serious collectors wil recall there was also a group of 1997 cards released with Playmate Review in 2004, in a failed attempt to marry the newsstand editions to the Centerfold cards,  Those cards are basically repeated in this edition with a slightly different format).  The biggest change in the basic set is the absence of cover cards, each Playmate now has only a pictorial and a centerfold card.  This was done mainly because current contracts with any celebrity appearing on the cover of Playboy are for single use of the image, so Stellar would have had to go back to each celebrity and negotiate for re-release of the image, which would be cost prohibitive.  The good news is that the format of the cards looks very similar to cards from older editions, the white border on the side of the centerfold card and the backs look much like the original series cards.

    Another change is the way the cards are distributed, there are no foil packs.  The cards are being shipped in boxes of 96 cards, dealers and collectors must break down the boxes to assemble sets, and obtain chase cards.  The cost of packaging and opening individual foil packs no longer exists, and most of the foil wrappers got thrown out anyway.   This is a reflection of what all card sets are heading towards, and the fact that foil packs are do not make much sense for a adult card set, since adult buyers do not usually purchase only one or two foil packs at a time.

    Card quality meets the high standard we have come to expect from Playboy and Stellar. Coallation in boxes is also excellent, one base set to a box is standard.   Chase card insertion varies, some boxes are better than others, but this is expected.
          Lower insertion ratio (that is rarer) chase cards have the usual purple foil, gold foil, and silver (or platinum if you will) variations for those who think it matters.  There is a stickered case topper,  which was a "platinum" memorabila card.  This likely varies from case to case.
          Spotlight cards are lower insertion than the other memorabilia cards.   The artwork for the spotlight cards is similar to older releases, and there are only three Playmates involved with, kiss, autograph, swatch and DNA for all three.  No idea of the number of chase cards made, but the insertion ratio should give some idea.
          Kiss cards are a recent development for Playboy cards and are new to centerfold cards in this release.  The concept is not new however, Playmates have been selling personal kiss cards through dealers, Benchwarmers had several editions with Kiss cards, and other adult sets have contained them, Scream Queens for example back in the 1990s.  Scream Queens also did nipple print cards, will that be next?  Inquiring minds want to know.  .
