Sorry, it's the day before Thanksgiving now. Had to wait for last of the sketches to arrive and be included.

We have 940 total packs instead of 1000 for the release. Exact counts per artist can be seen in the previews. We'll have a list later.

Sounds like it is time to drop a few artist. Release on Thanksgiving means that most packages won't be delivered until at least Monday, December 2, since UPS isn't delivering on Thanksgiving or the day after. Unless vendors will have the product in hand to have to customers the day before Thanksgiving.

Woo-hoo! Just got the email that my shipping label has been printed for the 2 packs I ordered direct from Viceroy! 3 more coming from another source, but hopefully these 2 will be in before Thanksgiving. Bugs for the holiday!

Edit: Expected delivery date 11/29/13 - Bugs after the Holiday!

Edited Edit: Tracking shows Out for Delivery 11/27/13 - Bugs for the Holiday!

And more insert information from the Insectae case break thread (I don't know how to quote between different threads, so copy and paste it is!):

We'll also be adding this info shortly to the set info... but Insectae boxes will also include limited Artist Chips.

10 different chips in the set, with 3 levels per design designated by the chip color:

Black: 75 total
Silver: 25 total
Green: 1 total

Yay, poker chips! - My comment, not Ryan's.

I don't know if there is a real way... I just hit quote and then copy the quoted text and go into the thread where I want to post the quote.

Still haven't received tracking for my 2 cases, somewhat sad that I won't be receiving them today :-( Hoping for Monday at the latest, but that means they need to ship today.

So, my first 2 packs were waiting for me when I got home!

2 packs of Viceroy Cards Insectae

One note for everyone, I may have missed it in the thread, but the sketches are not in a magnetic one-touch this time. I keep a stack of 100pt one touches, since I've been trading and buying Viceroy sketches off of eBay, and they don't always come with the original case, so I was able to make these match my other Viceroy sketches pretty quick. So, if you like the magnetic cases for your Viceroy sketches, you'll want to pick some up to have on hand.

I'm so happy with the ones I've pulled so far, and can't wait until my other three packs are delivered!

Thanks for the heads up. Didn't realize they were doing it already.

I just put my order in for a 10 box case thanks to Viceroy's Black Friday deal... Been collecting cards for the last 16 years and this is my first CASE ever. I will be eager to trade! Can't wait.

I just got my first case, they are very nice. I posted some on Ebay, I can,t keep them all. Is this a good place to post images for artist ID?

Yup, if we can't identify it, Viceroy sure will.

Here should be good, but the box breaks section is probably best for that.

So the poker chips are prints? Each image is done 100 times, in different levels?

101, actually. For each of the chips, there are 75 black, 25 silver and 1 green.

Since there are 960 total boxes instead of planned 1000, and there are 1010 total chips, we held back the leftover black chips as potential replacements. The full amount of 25 silver and 1 green per design were all packed out, randomly replacing black chips. Each case has a full set of the 10 designs.

Man I feel stupid. I thought they cut up sketches and pasted pieces onto the chips. When I see it typed I realise how stupid that idea was. Sigh. But they are still cool. In my case I got 7 black and three silver.

We thought about having chips printed with blank card stock that artists could sketch on, but it turned out to be a hassle. The small size along with trying to find stock that had a sticky back and would work with markers or paint just made it nearly impossible.
