Compared to most of the sketches in the first set, the sketches I've seen so far have been really good. I haven't came across too many bad ones.

Only a side note..still waiting for my boxes to ship

Miranda,

If you are listening do the redemptions get you both Kirkman and Adlard or just one or the other? Is R1-25 the Kirkman / Adlard. I just want to be aware for when I purchase from someone what I am getting.

Thanks!

Upon opening my second box, I pulled an over-sized redemption card!!

I also was lucky too when opening Series 1. My first box I hit a redemption for that too months ago!

Congrats mate, thats atleast 2 redemptions down, need to find out how many in the Hobby Set, Im thinking the 51 on the website are split 50/50 between Hobby and Retail, which, unless you have Yorkbag's luck, Sucks

Went by the other Walmart to see if I could find their card section and see if they had the cards out yet since the other Walmart in my area didn't. After not finding a card section I asked, and found out "they stopped carrying all the trading cards due to high theft". Blehh

Really wish Crypto would've just stuck with Target. I know it's probably because there's more Walmart's around the nation, but Target is where it's at. I'd personally sacrifice a few locations to have my product in a little bit classier and more professional store.

Hopefully the Walmart vendors get around to getting the cards out sometime soon. Then when I feel like driving out of my way again I'll maybe go check back [/endrant]

Checked Walmart again today..still nothing. Guess the cards weren't going to every Walmart, or the vendors are just lazy or really late. So giving up on Walmart. Maybe by some good chance they'll wind up in Target.

On a good note my boxes will be coming in Monday

Checked Walmart and Target today... none. Although probably not smart to buy retail anyway.

I e-mailed Miranda this afternoon with some questions about this set, and thought I would share what I learned.

On the Diamond Previews binder, there are around 300 of them made (so about the same number as the regular binder). That would make the odds of hitting one of the original sketch cards from them about 1:33.

The redemption list on the Cryptozoic website was also updated to show which artist each redemption is good for. The hobby redemptions are numbered R1-R25, and the retail redemptions are numbered RR1-RR25.

Saw blister cards with 2 packs/per at Target (so much for the exclusivity to "some" Walmarts). Didn't buy any but stated odds were 1:1,000 for sketches with absolutely no mention of redemptions.

Was in Tampa for the weekend, saw the blister packs at a Target. Decided to go ahead and pick up two packs. Hit all base and one Quotable card. Unfortunately I already had that card so I'll be putting mine up for sale.
