Default Star Wars Box Question

So I'm a huge Star Wars fan, always have been, never got into anything but the movies, but they're among my favorites of all time (well the first 3 hahaha). I was at walmart and saw some rack packs for Star Wars Galactic Files and thought they were really cool.

Is buying a box of that worth it at the price here on blowout or is there something else I'd enjoy breaking better?

I really want to try a Star Wars box that isn't too expensive but still a fun break. I'm assuming there are some sort of hits in each box like in sports right?

Thanks for the suggestions

Zona, whats up man! Stewart is going in the mail today by the way. Well I got into star wars cards during the release of Galaxy 6. That was the most fun I have had opening boxes, as Topps usually had two sketches per box, or printing plate/ sketch per box. And the sketches were really well done!! That stuff now though is $130-$160 for a box so tough get there. Galaxy 7 I got a case of and pulled some really nice cards. The Galaxy cards are more focused around sketches. As they have Sketchagraphs, which are hard signed cards with a sketch above it....very cool most of them. The new galactic files is more of a set builder/ patch (patches are not impressive) collector and autos of the actors/actress with a real photo...no sketch. I personally enjoy the galaxy set better than galactic files. There are still alot of nice sketches out there, but not as compared to what I saw on the galaxy set. Go for a galaxy 7 box, its $20 bucks cheaper too!!!

Thanks for the tips Kopper!

What I really liked in this rack pack was the random character and scene cards from the movies, those were just pretty cool for me as I'm such a big fan of the movies. So it wasn't really as much about wanting hits for me, do they have those same kinda cards in the Galaxy 7?

How much does a box of those normally run? Do they also have like 2 sketches/plates per box like the 6's?

I'm so much in selling mode again to try and be able to get some sort of Star Wars box, can't believe I didn't really realize how awesome they were until now. Was searching through some box breaks on here and looking at sketch cards on eBay, some really really cool stuff out there.

Really I'm looking for something geared more towards the movies than the comics and such as I want to know most of the characters I'm getting

Ya the cards are really sweet. The thing with Galactic Files is that it was supposed to encompass the entire Stars Wars universe. So this includes the movies, but also the clone wars cartoon series, and a good amount of expanded universe stuff (basically the stuff that happens years after the movie and many years before the movies) So you could be getting something you have no idea on, but that can be fun. SW Galaxy 7 was heavily preordered so Topps only put in one sketch per box, and the printing plates were like one every other case.....so ya production was ramped up. I'm hoping Galaxy 8 will be like Galaxy 6, just like in sports cards how one year that set is up then the next year it is not as good. Granted I liked Galaxy 7, but the extra sketch would of been nice.

So Galactic Files may actaully be fun, you may get someone that your not sure about, but there are some really, really cool expanded universe characters that you may not know about. Like Han and Leia's kids, luke's son, some really cool bad guys. Your a winner with either one. It comes down to sketch cards, and I prefer Galaxy 7 over Galactic Files...its cheaper and ya one less hit, but those patch cards are rough....come one topps.

Ordered myself a box of Galaxy 7, think it should be here Thursday, CAN'T WAIT!!!!!

Almost hoping it's not too much fun to open (but not really ) as I didn't have the money for this one as it is, used Bill Me Later and will be selling stuff to pay it off by the end of the week hopefully

I swear the world is just going to be teasing me until this box shows up

An hour after ordering the box I get in my car and on the XM fantasy channel they were doing a segment called the cabana or something with sound effects from the original star wars in that bar and R2-D2 sound effects.

Then about an hour later someone bought a card from me off eBay and paid for it, the email address tied to the PayPal account was like lukeiamyourfather@..... Hahahaha

I'm really hoping for a 1/1 sketch card as I've never pulled a 1/1 before and think that would be a really cool way for me to pull my first one.

Ha dude they are all one of one!!! So no matter what you will have one in there!!! All topps sketch cards are one of one, you can find out the artist counts though for each set most the time on scoundrel art.

Hahahaha

I honestly thought since only some of the sketch cards that get posted on here show the back that says 1/1 that only some were like that and others the artist did multiples of that specific sketch. Honestly slightly disappointed by that since I was hoping to get my first 1/1 at random and not where it's guaranteed, same reason I won't buy a product that guarantees a booklet till I pull one naturally for my first

Think I'll get over it pretty easy though, hahaha

What size cards are they done on?

I'd like to make sure I have a one touch in the right size, can stop by my LCS before they close if they're all the same size

Same size as any regular card, yeah wish they would do the sketch cards numberd by how many they actually did for the set....but thats wishing, also their are some rare true 1/1's by the artist Joe C. I believe who did the foil villian set. It's a 6 card set of all the bad guys, and you can get the original artwork for that subset which is pretty cool, and that would truley be a 1/1. Only problem is their are only like 6 and I know I have seen a few surface and sell for $700-$900 I believe.

oooooo, so they're all 1/1's because they're hand drawn, but there are some where the artist did the same general sketch, right?

So I need a 35 pt like most base cards or is it a little thicker and would be a 55?

They are the same size as most base cards so 35 pt will work.
