Has anyone checked their status of the boxes ordered from Cryptozoic? I just looked and mine says Processing. I would not be shocked to see people get this product before the 10th. Maybe they gave us a date to shut us up about not having a firm date in hand.

I just saw this as the bottom of my order as well:

NOTE: This order has already shipped or has reached the final stages of processing. Therefore this order is no longer editable.

I don't think Henry is going to ship out any cases/boxes early. I ordered from him and have kept in constant contact since I placed my order and he assured me that he wouldn't be shipping before the street release date. Not sure if that applies to everyone but that's what he told me.

I just looked at mine. My first order of 1 box shows shipped and it was picked up by FedEx yesterday. It listed today as a delivery date, I'm only about 90 miles Cryptos office, but FedEx tracking doesn't show anything but that it was picked up yesterday.
My second order of 1 box from last week is not showing up on my account page.

Correction mine does not say shipped yet. Danni1185 is probably right, labels were proably all printed yesterday with boxes going out later this week.

I also have tracking for my two boxes from CZE but no updates yet. I'm guessing they probably printed everyones labels and will be releasing them to ship in the next day or two. Mine just says info was sent to FedEx. Not picked up yet... I cannot wait to open these!!

So, we talked about "retail" packs previously in this thread. And we all know that retail packs will have a lot worse odds. Has anyone found these odds tho? Just curious. Like 1 per 72 packs for auto, etc?

I would put auto odds in the thousands.

I haven't seen anything about retail odds, but my thinking is that they would be double the hobby odds. 1 costume card per box would kinda make sense. The big question will be the autograph odds... will they be like UD's Thor and Captain America, where the odds were something crazy like 1:1000 packs? Or 1 in every 2 or 3 boxes?

It's tough to guess since Crypto has never had a retail release before. But if I were to guess I would say Wardrobe cards 1 out of 72 packs with Autos 1 out of 288 packs.

Unfortunately, those people who stock shelves, or whoever those people are that sell those "hot" packs may grab all the costume cards.

Not to derail, but I honestly think those people should be taken off ebay. I've reported many, but none ever get taken down. Ok, sorry for the rant lol.

No odds have been stated yet for retail.

I will be checking numerous locations over the weekend to see if they have them in the back already.

Update: I was also guaranteed my order by December 10th. Binders were delayed.

Those hot pack searchers will most definetly get all of the packs with the wardrobe cards but hopefully they won't be able to tell if it is a dual or single wardrobe and hopefully they won't be able to tell which packs have the autos. There's really nothing you can do about the hot pack sellers on eBay. Maybe someday card companies will only sell the booster boxes with 5 or 6 packs in them at the retail level and do away with selling packs at the retail level. I would think just selling booster boxes would cut back on the shoplifters too that throw packs in their pockets.

I was told the same thing, no images, but was told it is ok to speak about my break, so here it goes:

Ok here are my pros and cons of my case

Pros:
-One complete mini master set (including shadowbox), and additional complete sets of the Character Bio and puzzle inserts

-Costume set will be even more desirable, and valuable than season 1. The reason for this however is my only real con with the entire set (see below)

-Last year my case did not have a sketch, but I was taken care of by the amazing customer service at Crypto. This year, I got a sketch, so big pro in my book.

-Three boxes in my case had an extra hit, one an extra costume, and two with double costumes

-Had the best possible case when it comes to autos. Got a Season 1 Andrea, and the only autos I did not hit from season 2 were Andrea and the 2 versions of Sophia. Yep, I got Rick, Lori, and Daryl all in one case. As an autograph collector primarily, I could not be any happier.


Cons:
-Only one really, there is a walker costume card in every single box. This means two things, you will have 2, and sometimes 3 of each walker cards in a case, and more importantly, it will make the costume set VERY tough to put together.


I got a total of 13/26 non walker costumes in my case (not including the two duals), and seeing as I am sure that at least one or two of the regular character costumes will be SP like last year, I would guess that even with PERFECT collation a costume set will not be able to be made from just two cases. It'll be interesting to see what costumes are SP. Based simply on the size of the women on the show, I would guess any of their smaller shirt items. My money would defiantly be on Maggie's Green Tank Top, especially since there is a double costume and a regular version of it, its already a smaller piece of clothing I have to imagine either the double, or the single, or both versions will be SP.

So the Andrea S1 autos are the box hit and not "in addition" to a S2 auto?

Yep, the Andrea Season 1 auto was the only auto in the box it came in. I ended up with 11 season 2 autos, and an Andrea S1 A3 auto
