Anyone have a clue when Blowout may start taking preorders on this stuff?

I preordered 6 cases of this. I really really hope the order gets filled completely.

I'm not saying anyone in particular is doing this but it kinda sucks when people buy multiple cases just to resell when a guy like me just wants a few boxes because I actually collect it. I hope I can get some at a decent price point like when I got my four boxes of the original set. If it comes out at over $100 I'm going to have to sit on the sidelines for this one. It just sucks, I hope Blowout or other reputable places start taking orders so I can at least have an idea what the boxes might come out at.

That's always been the case in our hobby, just that most publishers over produce... In this case, you had the opportunity to make deals with some of these guys to get boxes for $60 not too long ago.

I guess I just read these boards too much and don't know who to trust with money that far in advance. Hence why I am waiting for places like Blowout to go live with it. I completely understand that that's how it is, and hey the people buying multiple cases are taking the biggest risk so they should be rewarded if this does go up like Season 1 did. I just am holding out hope that I can get a few boxes at the Season 1 price of $70-80. Pipe dreams probably, but can't lost hope.

I know exactly what you mean. I can't afford to buy a bunch of cases, I can only buy a few boxes at a time. But on the other hand these bulk buyers put a lot of singles on the market that I never seem lucky enough to pull myself (like redemptions and nice sketches).

I might have been able to get one case from my LCS. But that's for me, myself and I. I love this show and it's only going to get better I think. I just hope that there are some more big names to sign for this one like a Rick, Lori or Hershel.

Perhaps not for this series, but in the future, keep an eye out for the guys who buy multiple cases to sell loose boxes. You may do a search here and see if you can pick up some: Non Sports Card Forum - Powered by vBulletin

Wow... I hope my case doesn't get canceled... I'm nervous as hell about that. At least Solar Fly Cards has a guarantee on it... but I'm still worried I'm gonna get that e-mail before the release.

I want every one of those character sketches! Very few good ones from Season 1 showed up on ebay (I did miss out on 2-3 nice but expensive Rick sketches though) so I guess I'll have to be prepared to spend for these ones. Here's to hoping for more character sketches in this set.

I wonder if sketches will be one per case like Series 1 was. God I cannot wait till I can preorder some of this stuff through Blowout.

Anyone else thinking that it's going to be until December when we actually see any cases?

I know a lot of you said the first season went that way and I'm just getting eager to get my first case

Those sketch cards are AMAZING and are going to be worth a small fortune in the sketch-world.

I remember getting some boxes in the fall right before the new season started so I hope it doesn't get delayed until December. I think most places are afraid to take preorders on this since it's going to be in super high demand and relatively low supply. Some other websites are taking preorders and even have pictures of what the box will look like. I just find it funny that Blowout is taking orders on BBT 3&4 while Crypotozic hasn't even added a page to their website for this release. I'm still betting that Walking Dead comes out next month some time.
