Heard from my local shop owner this week that they will be doing some redemptions for some of the cards that were not put into the packs. The owner said his distributor told him they will be exchanging hobby packs for these redemptions.
I have yet to see anything official on this myself, but the owner told me he'd forward me the email about it whenver his distributor get it to him. His guess was that it'll be like the new Topps Chome Baseball pack redemptions, where you send in a box's worth of Hobby packs and get 1 redemption pack in return.
Hopefully this means we might actually get some Cro Cop, Gomi, Yoshida and Hughes auto's out of this product now. Wouldn't hold my breath for Paul Daley considering the dubious way he made his exit from the UFC.
