Your best chances of getting a Ford or Ridley auto is still with FA1.
They only made about 7,600 boxes or 633 cases and there are 11 Ford autos and what appears to be around 40-50 mystery redemptions for Rey.
So 1 in 10 or 11 cases has a card worth more than the price of the case!

So using what little information I have along with recent history, I will do my best to give an educated guess on the production run and hit breakout.

I am thinking/hoping they make around 12,000 boxes or 1,000 cases
I can't see it being much higher than 13,000 boxes because they are only making 2,150 total medallions and Topps is probably putting in about 2 per case.

Anyway this is how a case will break out:
5 Autos (1.3 will be a parallel)
2 Sketches
2.25 Relics
2.15 Medallions
0.60 Printing Plate
12 Total Hits per case

Parallels (Non-Auto):
9.90 - #/99 Prism
7.50 - #/50 Shimmer
1.50 - #/10 Pulsar
0.15 - #1/1 Superfractor
19.05 - Total #'ed Parallels

Some other fun projected odds I came up with as well if you are bored!

15% - 1/1 Auto (Super or Printing Plate)
2% - Multi Auto
4.5% - Rey Auto
0.6% - Ford Auto

On average (in a perfect world) each case will have either a 1/1 (any), Ford auto, Rey auto or multi auto

Yeah one would hope you would get 1 of those 9 top names in a case.
Not that Peter Mayhew is a big hit anymore, but a low numbered one would not upset me.
Most boxes will not be worth the cost, but hopefully at least 2 boxes in a case are more than worth it and take the sting of the other duds.

The boxes with the medallion cards will actually not be the worst box in a case sadly.

Looks like Blowout just raised their case price by $60 after the addition of Rey to the auto checklist!

The sell sheet says: "Relic Cards featuring costumes from Star Wars: The Force Awakens!"

Also I asked a week ago on the Topps SW Facebook page:
"Can we get preview picks of the relics for this set? What will they be of?"

Topps replied:
"We're going to have details coming later this week"

Topps has not given any further details to this point, but at least that makes me believe there are relics in this product.

I was questioning if there were going to still be Relics in this at all...so I guess it's good news they havent' completely, openly dismissed the idea.

At $840 per case, I really can't fig out if I want a second case of this or not...$70 is a lot o cash for 1 hit.

I wrote this product off long ago, so happy to see it rebound...I know prices are starting inch up...just don't know if even at $840 this is a decent buy.

Hopefully not more stormtrooper relics. Or is those, use different troopers versus "leg" and "arm" of the generic suit they got.

Surely they could've gotten some fabric from the resistance outfits or the villagers of Jakku. Heck, take some capsules of sand from the set and put em in cards as jumbo relics.

$70 is lower than distributor cost.

Yeah, it was $849 initially but now pricing is off the board so looking at an increase for sure

I've been saying over and over we need to do one. It actually sounds like a lot of people want one so they don't have to buy a box for $70+ with only one hit. Seems to me that 1 hit would make people more into a break. I'm just hoping someone will put in for one...

I would be willing to get it, even with the high price.
Blowout has cases at $1,000, even though it was easy for me to get a case for $800 while using EBay Bucks and getting 10% EBay Bucks on top of that.

If you did 20 spots the cost would be around $53-$55, thus just under what I paid per box.

Yeah if one slot in the break is like $55 then I'd rather pay $15 more for a whole box of cards and the fun of opening on my own haha.

While Rey is a nice addition, I'm betting prices wil come down on this after a month or so depending how the first few cases go and we see how many medallions people are hitting versus autos and sketches.

It also depends on the print run. I'm probably way off, but this could be smaller print run than we think. I mean I think people are focusing on the hit too much .There were tons of boxes in the past where you got a 10-15 auto or sketch and 5 dollar medallion or manufactured patch. I'm not saying prices won't go down but we have a short memory on what 2 hits were. You can get two or three medallions from a case they will sell more than the 12 from a case you got from previous releases

I'm just saying your not much worse off on bad box with low value auto because I think the limited medallions over all will do better being limited. You still needed a decent name or high end sketch in past releases to do ok and thus is no different.
