LCS called. They only got a few boxes and wanted $117 + tax. I got 3 coming from BO, but man with the contents everybody is hitting, it's tempting to grab one today.

Jones AU /50, Penix Sketch and another plate (someone else hit a plate as well from the same case)

Pics are in the box breaking thread I started yesterday. Looking forward to seeing other people's breaks!
Congrats on the jones auto and penix sketch.

Ughhh. I thought I had a slight chance at lucking out today getting a case from a local-ish shop. I called them yesterday while everyone was frantically searching for product online. They said they had someone pre-order a case but he never paid and never responded to numerous phone calls. If the person didn't respond by today, the case was available.

I got excited. The case is available now BUT priced at ~$1400 :P I can't swing that. Oh well. Bummer.

I like the comment on Topps FB from someone thanking them for keeping the print run low lol. Topps doesn't randomly pick a print run, the pre-sells totally drive that.

If there was any truth to that we'd have more consistent print runs.

Good luck to those breaking. I'd like to try a box, but with going to celebration next week I don't have any spare cash, I'm already dropping $1,000 on photo ops haha.

Also it's odd Topps hasn't said anything about a con exclusive of any kind.

Actually there is truth to that as they haven't let preorders drive it in the past. You really think there was 1,500 cases of Chrome JvS cases preordered or whatever ridiculous number Chrome TFA or Masterwork 2 produced? No. They over printed to make a large production run cause they thought the demand might be there. In this case, they knew preorders would be low and they still printed according to them.

The point that I (yes me) made on the Facebook page was that it was nice that they didn't overproduce, or print more supply than there was demand as they clearly did a few times last year. You always talk about its us, the customers who need to tell Topps what it is they're doing wrong (which you do by complaining about every set) and that's the only way we can change the market, so now I'm letting them know when they do something right, so the trend continues. Its just customer input.

I'd only want to meet Buffy and she was just added. My friends will be meeting her and her hubby. Quite honestly Felicity isn't worth the price IMO, and I don't think her card is either but I have one lol.

6 boxes in. Done for a few hours

Hit 3rd 1/1 aiden cook two tubes plate auto

7 sketches in 6 boxes. Best quality since 2014 masterworks IMO

I guess the masterwork insult has been fixed.

Man if they can keep print runs down and quality up

Topps pretty much said they are printing to order for most everything this year. But what will happen is people see the big returns and hot cases coming for this product and will make them order on sets coming in the future which raises print runs. Then we have another saturated product like Chrome JvS with almost no value. Lots of people lose their behinds on it, stop ordering and you have another release that happens like Rogue One Series 2.

You just have to be smart and no when to hop in and when to get out.

Isn't a Chirrut Imwe auto 10/10 technically Donnie Yen auto 10/10? If that wasn't what you got, what did you get from your S2 box above?

I busted my 4 boxes until I got the 2 hits from each. I still have to finish to see the total on parallels. But I hit:

- 1 patch /50
- 4 sketches (AT-ACT (color), Warwick Davis's character (color), Young Jyn (B&W, Roy Cover), Darth Vader (Color))
- Donnie Yen Base Auto
- Genevieve O'Reilly Cyan Plate Auto

Ah no I got confused. I thought you were saying that you hit it only in S1 and not in S2. Understood now, you were just bummed to get two of the same auto from both series. Ouch, sounds like you've had a realllllll rough go with Rogue One cards

Nice hits dewman!
