My single box arrived yesterday containing...

- Full base set with a few dozen extra singles
- Box topper : Red #82 "A daring rescue!"
- 8 puzzle pieces with only one complete set of three (Escaping Fate)
- Blue foiled #86 and 104
- Red foiled #106
- Gold foiled #77 (individually numbered 09/30)
- John Dykstra autograph

I love the base set. It's large and has a lot of cool imagery. I'm pleased with the gold foil card since I know they're hard to come by. The Dykstra autograph is cool... I know there's been a lot of griping about non-actor autos, but SW is one of those films that revolutionized special effects in cinema and it's neat to have an auto from one of the driving forces behind that. All in all, I'm very pleased with my box.

I'm happy to get an auto and one I dont have. Prefer this to a sketch to be honest and two complete puzzles isnt bad.

Didnt know what to expect from these to be honest and I do like the cards. So all in all happy with the box.

Would I buy another, mmmmmmm gotta think on that one ! Big Grin

Hi All

Finally picked up my three cases today. Had a 6 hour round trip to get them. Friday traffic on the M1 motorway.

Tryptich, red and blue foils broke as was to be expected. I got 4 gold cards over the three cases.

Nothing to shout about on the autograph front but I pulled some amazing sketches.



The hi-lights were





both from the same case!!!

Also



As well as the first 'A' from the Tarkin montage by Catt Staggs and the middle piece of a three parter by Watkins Chow of Luke, Leia and Han and a Pence Sketch of Aunt Beru.

The artwork on these cards is amazing. Pictures on websites do not do them justice. Thanks to all the artists for their hard work on this set.
