Overall :
Good set with a slight problem on the “Series” cards ( e.g. Card no 1 ) with the years for the series :-).

Costume card or costume redemption or New Avengers promo in every box as a box topper i.e. Not in a packet

The case breakdown on autos went :

0x A1 Honor Blackman – Mrs Cathy Gale
0x A2 Linda Thorson – Tara King
2x A3 Ronnie Barker – Edwin Cheshire
6x A4 Jennifer Croxton – Lady D. Forbes-Blakeney
1x A5 John Cleese – Marcus Rugman
3x A6 Peter Barkworth – Marcus Rugman
6x A7 Liz Fraser – Georgie Price Jones
2x A8 Burt Kwouk – Tusamo
8x A9 Bernard Horsfall – Jephcott
3x A10 Tony Selby – Stanley
5x A11 Julian Glover – Peter Rooke

It does seem you get a poor deal if you pull the promo as a box topper. In some of the boxes above it was almost guarenteed to get Bernard Horsfall. At least its not as bad as the UFO sets where some boxes had the same auto's many times over. Frown

Two more boxes arrived in the mail this Morning.
#0716 & 0717.

Will open and post the findings later. Hoping for the Ronnie Barker & John Cleese autos. I grew up watching The Two Ronnies and Python, unless a Star Trek was on natch!

Well what a roller-coaster ride of emotions opening these two boxes were.
Box 716 had the better box topper but I was sooooo disapointed and angry when i got EXACTLY the same three minor autos that i pulled in box 1300.

Still, expecting more of the same, I started opening box #0717. another New Avenger promo, another A4 Aennifer Croxton, Mad Another A7 Liz Fraser Mad Mad
finally near the bottom of the box I pull a diferant auto ( expected A9 BERNARD HORSFALL) but instead got a TONY SELBY not bad, I shouted GET SOME IN!, and started to compile (in my head) my e-mail to Barry & Strictly Ink about the poor collation of autos. Still 3 more packs in the box, i could still get another foil card so i opened the last packs..... And in the VERY LAST pack of box 717 I see another ( the 4th) auto.
Still expecting a Horsfall I turn it over and blow me down with a feather it Arkwright himself RONNIE BARKER Dance Dance Dance Elephant Elephant Elephant Thumb Up

Thank you strictly ink, all is forgiven.

Box 1158

1 Base Set
1 New Avengers promo box topper

4 "Vehicles" cards: C1, C2, C6, C7
2 "Steed & His Ladies" cards: F3, F4

3 Autograph cards:

Not particularly rare autograph cards, but all 3 are actors I like so I'm quite pleased! Smile Overall the quality seems a step up from the first set.

Hey Wolfie, Are you serious? You'll trade a John Cleese Auto card for the AV-C3 Box topper costume card?
