The magnetic holders are nice, but I would sacrifice them for added content in a heartbeat.

BO had a one-case limit the entire time their cases were listed.

apparently they break the rule for group breakers ? however if that is a rule set by viceroy then blowout selling one person 3 cases is pretty much breaking viceroy rules. group break or not.

You can always get your hands on more. It's just one case per address I do believe. So someone could order one, have a friend order another, and say a sibling order another. That way the one person would wind up with 3 cases in the end, but all shipped to separate adresses and names.

BO could have worked with the person and let them order 3 cases, it's a possibility of course..but I'd go with my first scenario to be the easiest and most logical.

The same thing was down for Space set, however, each person was limited to 1 spot in the Space group Break. It is not as if this person just purchased 3 cases for himself to break, he bought it for the sole purpose of a group break, I don't see an issue with it.

I think the intent of the rule is to prevent flippers from monopolizing cases and sketches and focus more on the collectors. With a group break it's all about the collectors already, and even with multiple spots no one will end up with more than a case to themselves...probably not even close.

I feel the group break falls in line with Viceroy's business model and philosophy, but maybe they could chime in and clarify.

I know I'm looking forward to my 1 spot.

Update! Here's a sneak peek at one of our inserts, Tickets Please!

These will be harder to pull than the other 3 inserts. Ticket relics can include small 'ride' tickets, larger single tickets, rare full vintage tickets split into 2, 3 or 4 cards to try and complete the entire ticket, and Jackpot ticket relics!

Jackpot tickets will include a strip of vintage tickets, cascading out of the relic card itself!

There is one style of ticket relic card, with a ton of different vintage Carnival, Circus, Sideshow and ride tickets imbedded in the cards. Card number is TR-1 (Ticket Relic).

We'll have more info soon!

The ticket cards are very cool. Sets like this put the FUN in collecting.

There's your creepy clown card. I'd almost rather just send it to you instead of putting it in a pack and frightening both small children and grown men.

I have a question for everyone out there, or even possibly from Viceroy themselves. I have seen people busting a coule of sets now, i.e. Space! and now the Carnival sets, but I am wondering how or where can you go about pre-ordering and picking up some of the newer sets that could possibly be coming out? I am sure I am going to catch some hell as I should be paying attention, but I am still new on collecting the more hardcore collector sets like these. Thanks everyone!

Go to the Viceroy website and sign up for the newsletter. Their will still be more Carnival boxes available. Not sure how many left. Will be available on Solarfly cards for I think 265 a case still. BO will have some as well but not sure on price. But yeah just follow on here as they usually announce the next set and then when you will be able to pre order.

Get two computers. Point one at Solarfly and one at Blowout. Position two drinking birds so they are hitting F5 thusly:



Assume a cat-like state of readiness while watching both computers at all times. Or you could subscribe to this thread, I usually %&#$ myself when they're back in stock and post about it on here.

Just keep reading the threads about new products, that information is almost always posted in them. In this thread for example, when Solarfly and BO put their cases up for pre-sale, there were posts letting everyone know.

If you are asking about future Viceroy sets, like Cryptids 2 and The Deep, those pre-sales are still a long ways away. They typically go up for sale maybe 2 months before they come out, so just keep a lookout for threads about the sets, and the pre-sale information will get posted at some point in them.

Thanks every for the responses and info! I usually read the forum posts, but I fell behind and missed out completely on this set. I will have to go and sign up for that newsletter cause these last couple of sets I have seen have been amazing.
