I got one of my boxes in today

Am I allowed to say what I pulled just as long as I don't post pics before release date?

If you were able to buy it, and aren't offering it for sale, it's all good. The only thing they could do would be to ask where you got it at. They'd be more interested in who sold it early, if it's a hobby box, I would think. I mean, unless you pulled like 4 Penny autos from the box. In which case they would probably be concerned slightly.

Gotcha... I'm not going to list them until street date or a few days after.

I got a pure black penny costume (M16)
And a Levar burton auto. (A19)


Pretty happy with the box, full base set and 2 of each chase inserts.

Lol, that'd be a dream box.

What penny costume is it? As on the checklist it just says M16 Penny, rather than penny's pants or whatever.
So exciting opening your first box. Can't wait to get mine.

The listing for the first Penny wardrobe that went up and the Leonard one (2 different sellers) now says "This listing was ended by the seller because the item is no longer available."
Wonder weather someone contacted them and told them to take them down to the release date or could have sold elsewhere.

Yep... It's the floral dress.

So after going to 3 targets..2 had them, 1 didn't. Felt around the packs, nothing that felt like a wardrobe or anything out of the ordinary. I know I'm not the only one that has felt up some packs that are loose. They don't want that, put some hobby boxes in the store

At last Target I wound up just buying 3 packs. Figured I'd bust them and hope to get a chase card which chances are slim, but at least bust to see how the cards are and quality to see if I will open my box or sell.

Didn't pull anything special, just normal base cards. Figured I'd post some pics for anyone interested in what the base set looks like and all that.

Still find it odd all the retail packs are out before the hobby boxes..but oh well, guess that's what Crypto wanted since the packs are set out by vendors instead of just some careless workers or something

i'm indifferent since i don't really buy retail unless its blisters for football which are sealed. just giving you a heads up.

i cant wait till my case comes in. i may only bust half depending on what i pull and maybe sell the other since prices may be in my favor.

anyone know how much the redemptions were worth for the 1st set? the cryptozoic site says 8 are still not redeemed. and my master set isn't technically complete without one...

That first Penny wardrobe card is already at $80.99, I'm curious to see what it ends at.

Bunch of the autos now up on ebay. None of the main cast though.
Guessing people are starting to receive their boxes and wacking them all up on ebay

I picked one of those cases up. After eBay bucks that I will get back in a few months it comes to $980.00 for the case.

Nice... I got around $110 in eBay bucks for my cases. (avg $63.58 per box after eBay bucks)

I can't wait to pull an auto costume
Hoping I don't pull raj or Howard's, I think those will be the cheapest.
I'd buy them after I broke my cases.


Should be interesting to see how the reg autos will sell.

Would anyone here be interested in a master set? I'm going to try and build one.

I can wait to open the one case I bought! Unfortunately, I will be in Las Vegas with the wife when the product is released. What bad timing!

I think I have 2 boxes from BO plus one case I ordered off of ebay when it was $750. If I would have been more patient, someone else was selling a case for $660. Dang...that would have been awesome.

I see blowout listed Season 3 & 4 binders. Am I to assume that due to them being $34.95 means the costume card is not part of it?

guy was putting out the new stuff at a Wal-Mart by my house.
Had a gravity feed of Big Bang but there was barely any packs in it.
He said rest of packs are in the back. They will put them out once these were gone...I was like wtf. So just grabbed 4 loose packs.
No auto or costume but did hit a foil and a "Couples" die cut

I cannot see the autos and most of the relics on eBay anymore. From my view of things, looks like Cryptozoic might have instructed others to take those auctions down.

They're all still listed on eBay.
Not sure why you can't see it.

New ebay format sucks. I like the old one better.

The SRP is $30, so I would assume they should come with the wardrobe card. Since the wardrobe card is of Howard, that's probably why we won't see the binder go up significantly in price like with binders from other sets.

Target by me had these in today. I've never seen such obvious evidence of pack searching. Packs were all jammed back in the box and were all over the place. I'll wait for the case, rather save my $2.49.
