Yep, they are unfortunately... just those cheap throwaway type you get in pubs/bars. I also would've preferred art cards or a booklet of some sort.I'm guessing the coasters are made of paperboard or very light cardboard. I'm guessing it would not be wise to actually use them as coasters because one use will probably warp them. I would have rather had art or character cards but I guess coaster will have to do.
Person I giving as a christmas present will not want back of jcard that is not in English.
There's a subtle print of the Voight-Kampff logo patterned into the paint, the same logo that is printed on the coasters. That's possibly what gives it a streaky appearance as it's not terribly visible.Opened mine this evening and a bit of a mixed bag for me, on one hand you can tell just by then packaging alone that this is more than just your usual WWA Steelbook but then on the other the packaging is actually pretty overkill and a normal sized PET slip would probably have been better. I think most would rather trade the pin and coasters for a nice photo book as well which is a glaring omission (again given the size of the packaging). I also question the quality of the Steelbook, a little on the streaky side (other than the spot glossed areas obviously)
For a first try it ain't bad but there needs to be more goodies for the next title they release imo
