Yeah, on that page, it keeps a running tally of what you have out of 221 cards needed.

For the record, the quad autograph has Sigourney Weaver, Bill Paxton, Charles S. Dutton, and Ron Perlman on it. What a weird grouping.

I knew how to track your own progress, I'm wondering more if you can see how many spots are taken in an achievement. If I see nine are done and I have a ways to go, I'd stop versus sinking money and time in only to not get that special card.

I guess UD made the card so that there was one cast member to represent each movie.

Got ya. I would *assume* that UD will subtract from the 10 listed as available as they are redeemed. Doubt anyone knows as it's the only achievement card listed that has a listed quantity available. How much do you trust UD?

Ashamed to say I like these e-packs. I've bought into it I guess. I didn't get to open any of this stuff tho. Opened 2x boxes and about 15 loose packs.

Hit Harry Dean and Lance auto, 2x duals (including a rarer Bill Paxton one) and a sketch.

I'm wondering tho, are any of you trying to go for these achievements that would like to trade? please lmk.

Btw, pulled this beautiful Charles Hall Sketch!

You will find many traders if you go on the epack site/app.

Someone check my logic here. In order to get the SP3 achievement card, you have to get a complete orange set of cards 1-94.

94 orange cards require 940 red cards. 940 red cards require 9,400 base cards.

With perfect collation, 9,400 base cards at 4 base per pack would require 2,350 packs.

2,350 packs would cost you $14,076.50.

Sound right?

Bought into the hype and grabbed a couple MM packs, nothing special.

EDIT:
Just decided to try two Alien packs, hit a Daniel Kash auto.

You do have that option for UD to send them direct. Some day when I get my Ian Holm auto in, I will post it here.

I've been contacting lots of artists from this set and was amazed by the amount of cards produced by them (relative to the rumoured short run cases).
Now, it becomes very clear why the output was so high...

If you are opening a great deal of packs, you should have inserts you can trade for a ton of base or just buy cheaply on the trading site

Not against the whole concept, it's not too bad. They probably need to be upfront that a release's total run will be spread across epack and real boxes etc though...

Not a fan of not being able to get a base set though, as it means base cards are pretty worthless ? If they're trying to limit people doing exchanges for small numbers of real cards of the base, why not say that if you can complete the base set in your Epack collection you can redeem it for a factory base set if you want ? Might even encourage more sales...

There hasn't seemed to be a lot of interest in these on the secondary market. I pulled one back when we used to open boxes at home and it sold after the 3rd 30 day listing for like $25. The most recent plate sold for under $10. Epacks may increase interest in this set and give a boost. Best of luck!

Not sure I understand this post. You can get a full base set out fairly easy. In fact, "real" base sets of this might go up because everyone (like me) are trying to turn the base sets into foils lol.

Btw, cannot wait till my hits arrive to show everyone!! My last box and 10 packs were good. The box held a Paxton only, BUT the 10x packs had 2x actor auto's! Was shocked I finally got "lucky" No, no weaver but hitting Lance & another in 10 packs was great IMO. Still searching for the Elusive Weaver.

Yes, it's easy to collect an electronic base set... but it can't be redeemed for a physical set. So he's saying it's too bad that you can't get a physical base set from e-packs. And to collect 10 electronic base sets in order to turn into a foil base set that can be redeemed is probably beyond most people only opening a box or two.

Wow, I wasn't even aware base couldn't be redeemed. Huh. I hadn't tried transferring a set yet. UD should do something about this.

Yeah, base in the Alien set can't be transferred for real cards...so if you pull all base from a pack, you're basically pulling digital only unless you collect enough to go for the red parallels which are transferable. That's why I think you should be able to redeem for a full base set once you collect all the base cards in digital versions. I've stopped buying the Alien set pretty much because there's so little return in them...

Another thing to be wary of - there are cards missing from the Alien base set for some reason... 12, 45, 75, 77, 94 & 98 so not sure what's up there ??

Well, I'm at about 1-2 red foils but I may just give up, getting 10x red foils of each card is quite daunting

Please keep the trading coming my way tho!! Very much appreciate it.
