From the lone extra pack I bought I got M31 Walker Horde

All pieces are for sale/trade for Benchwarmers products. If I can get more boxes cheap ($85 CDN) would anyone be interested in them?

Wow... that guy opened the retail pack and listed it as 'unopened.' Only except it was opened already.

That's pretty pathetic. Hopefully people see the "RETAIL" blood spatter on it.

Greg Nicotero is the best auto in the set IMHO. No actor on the show will ever boast even half the resume of Mr. Nicotero.

As a huge fan of the comics I feel they've done piss poor job introducing Michonne on the show, and the Governor is super weak compared to the comic series.

I don't see how yours was... however one of the listings broke a retail pack and listed it as an 'unopened' and 'unsearched' pack. I've purchased from you before though and you are by no means a dishonest seller.

No it can't be a shadowbox - it says wardrobe - the SB cards don't have the same feel as the swatches. (the sale came from england)

well yeah, i know that and you know that (tnanks for posting), but i don't appreciate someone else who has no clue about me or my listings lumping my listing in with the bogus ones and calling me a dishonest seller.

well let's see what happens in the second half of this season. so far i will agree that they havent done that great of a job with the governor. hopefully there just slowly building him up. eventualy we should see just how evil he could be. i think they have done a good job with michone though .

Sorry Tim!

Madbacker posted a week ago that im a case searcher. Hes full of crap though. I posted this to a member who was going to be busting a case soon: Make sure to list which box the cards came out of. Like: left top to bottom (1-6), right top to bottom (7-12). See if theres any patters that stand out. I wrote that out of curiosity and excitement of the new set. When i posted it, pack/box/case searching never crossed my mind. So im probally "the one" zoop is talking about. For a while there i enjoyed coming here on the BO forum. But now this site sucks. Too many loosers with nothing better to do than talk crap about each other.

Thanks George - no hard feelings at all!

Back to WD - does anyone know if Sophia autos are printed in the same quantities? I had heard she signed the same as the others, so split out over two cards that means hers are SP'ed, but for some reason her walker auto seems to be a lot more in demand.

I know Miranda really only mentioned the wardrobe side of things in regards to SP's, I'd like to hear about the signature side other than the reasoning behind having a Sophia walker auto card and no Shane walker auto.

Although Miranda's reasoning for choosing the walker variation may be the reason for it to be more in demand.

Has anyone seen more or less of either version pulled? From breaks on youtube and here. Seems to me less Sophia Walker variations are being pulled.

All of the autos are pretty even, although Sophia's two versions could get a little off from getting both out of 2 cases. Everything I looked at in NC looked really good, without duplicates of Auto or Wardrobe out of a case.
Yes, you do get a Walker Wardrobe out of every box, but that never took the place of a Non-Walker Wardrobe--it was always designed to be in addition to the one Character Wardrobe per box. We did have a bit extra Wardrobe swatches, so we increased the ration from 1:24 to about 1:21, so you should get about 13 Character Wardrobe per case.

**If you haven't seen Season 2 there will be spoilers!**
Apart from that, Shane as a Walker didn't seem like a big enough event to make two versions (based on what I have to weigh two versions against listed above). Story-wise, he needed to die so that Rick could keep the group (and his family) safe. Shane's death also served to prove the information that Rick got from Dr. Jenner at the CDC about the reanimation process. Shane was a major enough character in Season 2, that had we cut the availability of each version in half, the price for the actor's autograph likely would have really increased. Our collectors have a difficult time securing product, and often spend way more on a box than we would like--cutting Bernthal's auto quantities in half would have likely increased the price for the autograph beyond our comfort level.

Sophia, on the other hand, had a very long story arc about if she was alive or dead. When she was found in the barn this was an important moment for the show and the character. Since she is still alive in the comics, her being a Walker in the barn is a huge deviation from the comic storyline, and had enough impact on the show that I thought it would be worth looking into.
Once we were able to secure a deal for enough signatures to balance out her two versions, I thought it would be a really nice way to include her. For those you who followed Season 1, we weren't able to use her likeness in Season 1 Trading Cards, so featuring her both as alive and as a Walker seemed like the best thing.

Yeah there is no definitive info there. I have yet to see two Sophia autos from the same case though so based on my very small sampling, i am leaning toward thinking there are definitely not as many of hers as the others (more total, of course, but less for each card)
