The sketches so far look bleh, nothing suiting 120 a box release. The prices sellers are asking without best offer boggle the mind. Cost was 1200 for 10 boxes making it 20 per card. But they want 300 for each card. I was looking forward to this but easy skip. Why can't companies get original art? Is it really that cost prohibitive?
I kinda like that the art is recycled, but that is only because the used a couple J Scott Campbell pieces in it

That La Mole cover would make a great Black Cat card

I think if UD does do an epack release it will not be cheap considering the regular boxes only have 2 packs with a total of 6 cards per box. Unless the epacks are only for 1 card.

Has anyone taken a stab at guesstimating the print runs of the non-serial numbered inserts yet?

Doctor Strange was 1 pack, 7 cards per box physical release @ $109RRP (I think) per box, the epack release was completely different, 20 packs per box, $3.99/pack, extremely low odds of hitting a descent phyical card.

There was mention that UD are looking to turn the epack site into much of a retail release avenue, so was just wondering if anyone had heard or seen a checklist or anything for the gems. I know I saw somewhere that this was being released on epack about 6 weeks after the initial release but haven't seen anything other than that initial announcement.

Any word on the epack release date, or even if it will happen? This set seems to have flamed out quickly, but an epack release could renew interest.

Did they cancel the ePack release? Or was that speculation that was never confirmed? I believe Dr. Strange ePacks hit 5 weeks after physical release, so if there is a Gems epack release, it is a bit overdo at this point.

I was hoping there would be an ePack release too. There hasn't been many new Gems cards listed on eBay for me to chase after. I still need a few more base cards of characters I like and a couple of Exquisite cards too.

I thought the epack release was confirmed when the pre-release info was announced, however maybe it was just speculation

Wonder what the price point if any would have to be to try this stuff. It does look nice. Took vibranium to be at 39 abox before I tried even one. They don't seem to be selling all that well on ebay
