Default Galactic Files 2 Available for Pre-Order

I didn't see any links on the PIP so I thought I would mention that it appears Blowout has started accepting Pre-Orders for it if anyone's interested.

I can't decide if I should get into this one ... I bought a case and a half of Galactic Files I and skipped Jedi Legacy. In regards to GF2, I wish they had done a variant on the front plate of the sketch cards, the autographs layouts and character layouts ... it's difficult to discern between I and II based on a sketch picture. Maybe the sell sheet is misleading but it looks like the same front plate.

Also it looks like they put printing plates into this product instead of selling them at a premium through topps shop. Anyone else planning on getting into this product?

After IM3 - I plan on opening up 1-2 more products this year, and I'm not sure if I'm on board with this one. The only thing that MIGHT sway me - is the lack of sketches in the Jedi release. However I don't care for how close they are.

I was on the fence for this one but ended up ordering a case from my distributor. It was allotted, so you only got to order whatever you ordered for GF1. Did pretty well with the first set so I figured this should be an equal performer with the addition of the plates and dual autos.

We're trying to get a case break going for Star Wars Galactic Files One. Post in that thread if you're interested so we can know whether or not we should host one ...

I will be getting a case as I did well with the first series. Not a big fan of the release being so close to Jedi either but it is what it is.

Are you opening them all Bryan, or are some for resell in your shop? Just curious.

Honestly I am more than likely going to open them all. Star Wars Galactic Files 1 I made a pretty decent return on and got to keep some cards for myself, so this release has me excited.

I only had three weeks to finish my minimum so had to keep the majority of the cards basic and no color.

Wish I could say the same, I'll be sitting this one out for sure but am trying to allocate a little side cash to buy up one or two of the nicer sketches (like the ones Justice is posting) off feebay.

I've already got my order in for several base sets to match the ones I got from my GF1 case + six boxes but I wish everyone else the best of luck!

I was bored at work, and decided to run some numbers. Since the autographs and medallions are 1:55 packs, you should get 5.24 of each per 12 box case. The other 1.52 hits per case are print plates and dual autographs, so if my math is correct, that should mean there are 1200 cases. [(1628 plates + 200 duals)/1.52]

hits per case:
autographs - 5.24
medallions - 5.24
print plates - 1.35
dual autographs - 1 in 6 cases
gold parallels/10 - 2.92
red parallels/35 - 10.21
blue parallels/350 - 102

Thanks Ted, Screwed up originally and drew an older design for the cloud city, rewatched Empire and got the right design. The paper doesn't like watercolors.Only did 2 or 3 location cards i think. This and Theed Castle and I think one more but I may be mistaken. Time was just not on my side for this set but I got em all done on time. I was up till 6 in the morning the day they shipped drawing my Returns. I saved those till last. if I messed up my time i would suffer but not the pack cards. So enjoy folks. I did two Puzzles one a 2 card the other 3 cards. They are self contained but they belong together.

Really nice work Roy!! Do I remember you saying this is the first Star Wars set you've worked on? You killed it! I hope to see you do more.

So glad I ordered that case... these sketch cards look incredible. Great work to the artists who have posted so far. Hope to see some more from the others hanging out around here! (And pull one or two of them...)
