Buying loose boxes can go either way...first, if buying off eBay you could end up with dud boxes (whereas the case hits have been pulled and they're dumping the rest)...then again, buying loose boxes from reputable dealers like blowout could bring you a couple boxes with the case hit.
You'd be spending more money on individual boxes, but it's definitely a gamble...but then again, isn't this entire hobby! I have gone with loose boxes on higher end product and have done very well then when buying a case. Good Luck with whatever you decide.
