I am doing a two case break on blowout, it should be approved soon. Good opportunity for those who missed out to participate.

Wow, there are seriously no disappointing sketches whatsoever. I can't wait to get my case in!

You won't be able to do a case break on blowout unless you purchased the case break THROUGH blowout. however if you somehow do it somewhere else, I would definitely buy a few from you.

He gave up his 2 case order from us directly, we allotted those extra 2 cases to blowout above their regular amount, and he is purchasing the 2 cases back from Blowout to hold a group break for those who missed out on buying boxes/cases.

I have two cases already but if for whatever reason you should need anyone to fill up any empty spots in your break, feel free to PM me!

I never saw it for sale on BO, but maybe I just missed it since they have so few cases for sale and they would probably sell out in a matter of minutes. More likely though, is that they won't be pre-selling it, and will instead wait until it is live to list them for sale.

Release date as listed on the Blowout product page is scheduled for March 22nd. This could possibly move forward or back by one week as we get closer to that date. All sketch cards are due from artists Feb 19th (this coming Tuesday), so once we get everything in we should be good to begin packaging.

More previews are coming! We scan every single card for the set, so as we get close to the artist deadline the influx of cards creates a small backlog when it comes to scanning. We should have more up very soon!


Also, since we were able to add a couple more artists doing 5-15 cards each, we may have a few more boxes available. What do you think would be a fair way to distribute these? We were considering just announcing it in this thread if we have more, and you guys could reply if interested. Probably do a 2 box limit since we won't have many available. We purposely undersold by a small amount at the beginning to guard against a late drop out by an artist, but it looks like we should be good with everyone.

What we could do is instead of just opening up the order page again, we could send a PayPal invoice to those interested so it's a bit more fair and regulated. PayPal invoices are quick and easy, you'd just pay as if it were an order page.

Also, Gary Kezele was kind enough to do a couple more sketches above his 25, to keep the case hit ratio at 1 per 10 packs. The extra packs will still be packaged in cases with case hits, then broken to fill new pack orders along with the pack orders from the original sale.

Let me know what you guys think!

(Please wait until we announce that we have additional packs available to reply with a comment asking for packs)

The previews have looked great, and I can't wait to see what other surprises you have in store for us in terms of inserts, since the Cryptids ones were so cool.

It's very cool that you will have some extra packs and will let some more collectors order these directly from you. I think this is a great system, sending paypal invoices instead of having a free for all by opening up the order page again.

I also think it's a good idea to have a 2 pack limit, so that more people can order them. I would even suggest taking it a step further, and not letting people who have already pre-ordered packs of Space to buy more. That way as many people as possible can get packs.

We'll have a full insert list posted well before the release date. A few items were already added to the list in the original post of this thread, but we'll have further information later on.
