I'm keen on thr phandelver and planescape and will likely be getting them as soon as they are out. Might wait for reviews of the giant book. I was sort of keen on it but I got the dndbeyond preorder email and it just didn't grab me. Seems like just another monster book with a smattering of player options.

I mean, it's Fizban's but for Giants instead of Dragons. I love Fizban, so thst works for me.

I honestly thought that we'd be getting just a book, and the card set would be sold separately. I'm happy that it includes the set.
My suspicion is that, moving past the new Core rules, they want to focus more on packages like this or Curse of Strahd Revamped. Give some added value.

Also: that Lore only book for Dragons is quite interesting.
The dragon books were popular Practical Guides (which is why they had three of them, plus spin-off chapter books), but they are very much aimed at kids. That said, they take place on Krynn, as I recall, for those who are starved for Krynn content.

In addition to the wizard book, I could also see them bringing back the faerie, vampire and monster books, although the faerie book presents a very simplified Feywild as the Feywild, so they'd have to do some major editing.

Overall, I think the 5E-era Young Adventurers Guides are probably better overall, but these definitely deserve to remain in print.
