Yep that is the silver lining for me. I love the costumes, and might hold into a couple but the rest will be sold to recoup some $$ from the case, and towards picking up the 3 season 2 autos I did not get, so the scarscity of the non walker ones is a plus in my book.

Just out of curiosity, how would you rate your case from 1-10? Did it meet your expectations?

To be honest 10. As an autograph collector more than anything else, like I said it couldn't get any better. I got 11/14 season 2 autos, and the season 1 auto could potentially be traded for the season 2 Andrea and at least 1 if not both of the Sophia's (unless one ends up being SP). The costumes are great, I got no duplicates of any non walker characters, and I got two of the three double costumes. Litterally the only thing that could have improved my case is the dual auto or badge redemption, but that is purely from a $$ standpoint, and not a collecting standpoint as I would sell them if I pulled either.

Also I got a full mini master set, so that's more potential recouped $$ from the case, as the only things I plan to keep are all the awesome autos.

Cyrptozoic blew this release out of the park.

I hope the rest of the cases hold the same results for us all.

Not to get too ahead of myself, but if you got a Lori, Daryl, and Rick auto in a case, it doesn't sound like any one autograph is short printed compared to another like in the Big Bang Theory. I mean if they are then that would be possibly the greatest case of this product, period.

I guess my two boxes from Cryptozoic come Saturday, what a nice treat. So if there are no real short prints what do you think that will do to auto prices? Might we have a case where some of the costume cards go for way more than the autographs do due to scarcity?

If all the cases are like this then the value of the autos will go down tremendously. Then again hope everyone gets similar luck or better I only have 2 boxes coming in and also #6/14 in a break on BO

From a collectors stand point is my reasoning in hoping we all have the same results not from a re-sale point.

But of course pardon for my ignorance. Looking forward to see you/madbacker and others complete the master sets!

Yes they did. When I sign into my account with them I clicked on the View/Change Order button and then the tracking number was right under the big, bold Processing. I wonder if you can post your hits from the boxes you get from them or if it will come with a letter asking you not to post them until next week?

Bryanjs14 was advised by Cryptozoic that he could post results of his case break but not photos until after street date.

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.

Thanks, I hope you get a big pull in your boxes/break.

I think that the Lintz Walker will be a SP and I am very happy to hear that the Autos may not be SPd.

Breaking 2 cases, selling 1 (most likely)

With autos not being short printed what, if anything, will that do to the price? I still think $130-$140 is the floor on this unless things don't sell well out of the gate. I think the real chase cards will be the costume cards, I could see some of those being short printed based solely off of how much material they may have to work with.
