Unstoppable Series 2

A second set was planned for "Winter 2016"; promo cards started to appear in July and August 2017, announcing "Coming in 2017". In February 2018, a page on Unstoppable's website stated "mid 2018".

On 18 June 2018, they announced the release date as 9 July 2018, with pre-order offers available on 24 June 2018. Dealers obtained their packs from around 11 July, but individual orders were not sent until 16 July or later.

Some autograph and sketch cards were not available until after the release date. Some of these were held back as promotions for dealers. Others were issued with a Summer Yearset on 26 August 2018.

Box art

The second series consisted of:

Each box is 9cm x 10cm x 5cm, with tape over the top flap indicating the number ("box # 918 of 1,299"). The front has tags "3 rare insert cards per box", "Look for the genuine hand signed autograph cards, sketch cards & printer plates". The back text reads (with inconsistent capitalisation) "Every box contains a complete 36 card collection set plus at least THREE rare and scarce Hand Signed Genuine TV Show Cast/Crew Autograph Cards, and/or Hand Drawn Artist SketchCards. Some Rare boxes may also contain original production used printer plates or cut famous actor autograph cards."

The box mostly contains polystrene peanuts plus the 36 base card set (in cellophane wrapper) plus an envelope with the 3 bonus cards (autographs or sketch). Unlike set 1, the cards are not in individual packs (set 1 had 120 cards per box).

A case contained 10 boxes. In total there are 1299 boxes (set 1 had 1999 boxes). The boxes are also sold as a set of 3, or in a case of 10 boxes, or a triple case (30 boxes), each with additional bonus cards.

Each box contains 3 autograph cards or 2 autograph cards and a sketch card or cut autograph card.
