See that's what I was thinking, his birthday is the 15th and he watches it every night as well as has them all on dvd. I open tons of football and baseball cards and he really isn't into those but I think he would really enjoy this

I would say a case is the way to go if it fits into your budget, honestly.

It depends on whether you are trying to make an autograph set I think. People like buying by the case because it ensures that you get the rare autographs (in last year's product, you usually got 2 of the big 5 in each case... so if you bought single boxes you might miss out on the rare autographs). If you are buying it more for the base set plus a chance at a cool autograph, then buying single boxes might make sense for you.

What will be interesting this year is if the expanded autograph list will mean less of each of the common autographs and more of the big ones. Going from 5 to 7 on the main characters, hopefully it will mean you will get 3 of those autographs per case, and hopefully no duplicates of the others.

One thing I am confused about is the fact that is says one auto and one wardrobe per box. We don't have a list or any pics of wardrobe cards besides the auto/wardrobe cards.

I think that may be overly optimistic. They went from 5 to 7 "mains," but they also went from 11 signers to 20 total. I think a case with 2 of the big 7 is going to be pretty exceptionally good. I expect to see plenty of cases with none of them at all, since the autos are 1/box. Even if the "main" and "non-main" characters were seeded at the same rate (which would surprise me), plenty of cases would end up without one of the big 7 just mathematically.

wow if that happens theres going to be alot of pissed off people when they open this product. I would probably not open another case from Crypto again.

LOL - there is no way that will happen unless they have collation problems. You can bet their intent will be to insert an average of two of the heavy hitters per case.

Does anyone have any ideas on when this will finally come out? I would have thought that the autographs would be what holds them back, but it seems as if the costume cards are what's holding it up given we haven't seen what they look like yet? After getting shut out on a case of Walking Dead, this was going to be first case I think. Anyone heard anything at all?

I don't look for this to release until February. Autos/costumes are not holding things up; Crypto rightly is not going to release one big product after another - they want to let each release breathe a little first. (I believe they are looking at DC products differently than tv shows.) Thus, with VD releasing in late January, expect BBT to be mid-late Feb. (IF that is next.)

I always thought that they were going to put out Big Bang before Vampire Diaries, at least how I thought it happened last year. But I agree that they seem to like to spread their products out a bit instead of all at once. If Batman hits next week, I wouldn't expect Big Bang to hit till February or March at the earliest. I just mentioned that maybe costume cards might be held up since we have yet to see any of them on their site like we've become accustomed to.

I figure since Walking Dead was worth the wait, Big Bang will be too.

The numbers aren't as terrible as I originally thought; you need around 167 of each of the mains to be able to make that happen. (7000 boxes means around 583 cases, 2/case means around 1166 from the mains, which is around 167 per cast member. I'm willing to believe 100-250 per, with Rauch signing like a fiend since she did so many for True Blood.) If the other 13 were equally distributed, you'd need around 450 of each to make it work out.

To get to 3/case, you'd need the mains to sign an average of 250 cards each. I don't know how that stacks up to the first set for the mains, but it seems high. We'll see.

If 150 of each, then the odds are 1:6-7 boxes meaning most cases have 2 with a very small chance of only having 1.

If 200 of each, then the odds are 1:5 boxes meaning most will have 2 while a good amount of cases will have 3.

I'm hoping for 150 of each to give them a little more value but not impossible to try and get.

Realistically, it will probably be 100 of each.

My odds that I calculated from my boredom in an earlier post.

you can't always calculate the odds like that. a lot of times retail chains will purchase hobby boxes directly from the manufacturer and not by the case.

Retail chains don't get Hobby boxes unless they get dumped at a later time.

Even if retail chains purchase Hobby boxes, they are only making 7000 hobby boxes.

They haven't announced if there is a BBT retail version.

It would be awesome if we could get a release date for this. All the big online retailers have it set for next week, but I think we all know that is not going to happen. It would be amazing if it did, would make my 2013.

Most likely February. I'd rather them not rush this, and have collation good etc. I'm really looking forward to this release.

Even $750 is a great deal for a case quite honestly. I see boxes hitting $90-100 after release.

if you locked in at several cases at 660 then you will be making some nice coin. you can make coin just from flipping the cases but also probably from opening as well.
