Just the hits.

Not bad getting a Spider-man Jambalaya. Aren't those like 1 in 200 packs?

Another PMG, very nice. I cannot wait to see more of it opened until I can get to my LCS to try a box or two of this. Once again, that red PMG blends so well with Daredevil just like the Deadpool did. Really nice hits there!

Yes, 1:200 packs

I was stoked to get it. I think this was an insane box overall.

Thank you, I was thinking the same thing. Very happy with both PMG's

Yeah it was. The sketch cards don't really float my boat, but getting two out of the box is nice.

It appears the sketches in this set are not up to Marvel Premier's standards but they do give you a lot of inserts...

Granted we have only seen a handful at this point. I still remember a lot of people being down initially on Marvel Premier last year when it first came out. Hopefully this set does the same and really starts to bring the goods once we see more and more of it opened.

Agree. They look solid but, personally, yet to see any sketches that interest me. And those background/border circles take away from the card, imo.

The inserts look great. Marvel has had good inserts in the last few years. But, the Jambalaya, PMG, plastic, and Holograms look fantastic! Finally good holograms though I'd still like to see those "orange/red/green/yellow" hue holograms come back.

The Jambalaya card is ugly as hell, but I'd say you did quite well on that box!

Glad I'm not the only one who thinks that

They love them in Basketball, though

I do not understand this product. But apparently that's just me! Glad everyone else is enjoying it so much!

I'm just very wary of inserts unless I know production numbers/see serial numbers. Hey, if they're cool (and some of these are pretty nice) I'll collect them but not at these prices.

Don't mean to be a hater

I think the PMGs look really sharp. If I weren't saving up for Mars Attacks, I'd think about putting a red or blue set together.

I know it's still early, but look at the activity on this Magento JAMBALAYA card. What if these inserts start bringing in this kind of attention?

I kind of expected the Jambalayas to go for a few hundred, at least at first, so that's not shocking to me.

if the metal base is only 60 cards and they made precious gems per box & 1 of each color 100 red 50 blue 10 green that means only 9600 boxes will be made, no?

You get two reds per 20 pack box, so that comes out to 6,000 Red PMG's and I don't believe greens or blues displace a red (at least not every time).


I think your looking at around 550 cases, give or take.
