Waddingtons: Ben 10 Playing Cards by Winning Moves

Today we are going to say several words about Ben 10 Playing Cards produced by Winning Moves Ltd. under the trademark Waddingtons in 2008. This is the third deck from the company, mentioned on pages of this blog. Waddingtons Ben 10 deck is dedicated to the appropriate American animated series created by “Man of Action” (a group consisting of Duncan Rouleau, Joe Casey, Joe Kelly and Steven T. Seagle) and produced by Cartoon Network Studios.

Ben 10 franchise (won three Emmy Awards) is about 10 years old Benjamin Tennyson who acquires a watch-like alien device that allows him to turn into alien creatures. The device is called the Omnitrix.

The original TV series (the pilot episode aired on December 27, 2005) are intended for younger children and tell about Benjamin’s summer vacations. He travels the world with his Grandpa Max and his cousin Gwen Tennyson. At the same time Ben fights crime and evil aliens with his new powers. At first the Omnitrix allows him to turn into ten different alien species: Wildmutt, Four Arms, Grey Matter, XLR8, Upgrade, Diamondhead, Ripjaw, Stinkfly, Ghostfreak and Heatblast. But then Ben acquires the ability to turn into ten more aliens: Cannonbolt, Wildvine, Benwolf, Benmummy, Benvicktor, Ditto, Upchuck, Eye Guy, Way Big and Eon.
