We shall see but I am expecting good things here, especially from the inserts!
I agree the inserts will be valuable--I just meant in general, trading is a pain in the butt and trying to move all of them via trade is not something I'd want to do

I'm actually really excited about this break - almost wish I would have ordered more cases.

Does anyone know if they are doing Premier again or is this their big high-end Marvel release this year? I really dug Premier but if they are not producing that set this year it may drive me to try more than one box of this.

I don't have anything on it - but that's not to say they wont do it. I'm thinking they probably wouldn't announce it till after Retro came out if they do have plans for it.

I just noticed that I have conflicting odds.

On my solicitation, all of the Impel cards have the odds twice as much as what's listed on here. I can see that the odds were pulled from the Cardboard Connection. It will be interesting to see what odds actually show up, when this stuff comes out tomorrow.

If what it says is true - ya.

Edit: When I called to order more, they only had 3 loose boxes. There was nothing extra, and there always is.

I was excited to give this a try, but I ended up spending quite a bit on Chrome. Between Chrome and Cherry 2 there just wasn't anything left. I'm pretty confident I'll be able to pick some stuff up in a couple weeks if I'm up for spending the money, so I hope the early breaks look good.

Just pulled the trigger on a box. Thought Friday was release date but looks like it did come out today?

I still don't see the value here with 1-2 single-panel sketches per box and no "movie memorabilia"... why, oh why isn't this a $100 a box product which still wouldn't lock as a hit but would make myself and others probably much more comfortable in ordering multiple boxes/cases.

Nevertheless, it looks like too much fun not to rip a box! And in a perfect storm, there might actually be value here though maybe only in the first few weeks.

That is one card that, even though not the rarest PMG, it's probably a best look given that the character is dressed all in red which really goes with the background. If I were a Deadpool fan, that's the one I'd want the most.

I just finished my mini-box, and hit two autographs.

The base autograph is the Steve Epting (Captain America), while I managed to pull an 1990 Impel Auto of Pablo Raimondi (1:576)

For those of you who watch Chris Justice (chri5784) on Youtube, he's got a couple breaks up for Retro. I'd link to it, but I think that's verboten since he sells wax.

I just watched the one on Youtube. 1 Green PMG, 1 Red PMG, 3 autograph, 1 of the harder to get sketch card, and 3 of the harder to get inserts. Loaded box.

Just a head's up to breakers, looks like the base card autos have red foil character names. Maybe everyone already knew that, but thought I'd mention since some of the autos seem to be hard to see.

The three box break he has up was pretty loaded as well. I think one box had 3 PMGs. Another had 2 sketches.
