While the cost of making this idea is very very prohibitive as a business idea(pokemon scale), this would fill up a nich in the table top gamer.

essentially it looks like any other pokemon game card, just thicker.

However the magic is when you open the two like a popup books, the creatures pops out in a fury.

Of course you can put just stats and abilities, but why not also put a health slider to keep track of the creature's health. very important in a large table game(warhammer style).

To make a rare card more valuable, all you need to do is to add more craftsmanship to it. (make it more cooler, more moving parts)

This will make for a more engaging battle, and lots more broken paper figurines as well.

       In all fairness, aren't you just reinventing Dungeons and Dragons (with all those figurines and multi-sided dice) ?

       Pretty much... hmmm... or not...   

       This is an idea that doesn't have to apply to D&D, maybe it can be part of a premium style collectible card game(Magic the gathering on crack/ yugioh... etc...).

       As a sometime Magic player I'll bun this. There are some problems, but the idea of a hologram popping up on the table is pretty cool.

       This would work, be cool and make money. Full points.
