Is the character on Gutz's sketch Lak Sivrak?

It could be him, or Defel. They do look kind of alike though - same ears Smile.

Case 2
8 Red Foil parallels
16 Blue Foil parallels
0 Gold Foil parallels
loads of puzzle cards
8 box toppers

Autos
Paul Blake - Greedo
Garrick Hagon - Biggs Darklighter
Colin Higgins - Wedge Antilles
Gary Kurtz - Producer
Richard LeParmentier - Admiral Motti

Sketches

John Watkins-Chow, Sarah Wilkinson, Davidé Fabbri

The JWC is number 0 in the Tarot deck subset he did and is entitled The Fool.

In first case, one box had an autograph and 2 sketches.
Didn't get a Gold Foil parallel.

I'm not convinced I'd make my money back if decided to sell but I got some lovely sketches.
Need to find Han, Luke and Ben sketches to go with the Leia, Chewy and R2 & C3PO ones. Favourite ones are the JWC and the portrait Tarkin by Sean Pence.

Of the box toppers, I got 2 blue borders (32,35) and the other 14 were all red border. I've 2 each of 67 and 75.
No duplicates on the red foil parallels but one card has a nasty scratch on the back. Dupes of 75 and 64 on the blue foil parallels.

Hi, this is my first post although I've been reading the boards for a long time.

I opened up 1 hobby case and here are the results. The collation was a bit off but in my favor as I got 6 autographs and 4 sketches
(2 boxes with 1 auto, 1 sketch).

-------- Blue --- Red --- Gold ------- Autograph ------ Sketch
Box #1___2_______1_______0_______Gary Kurtz
Box #2___2_______1_______0______________________Len Bellinger
Box #3___1_______1_______0_______Joe Viskocil____Brandon McKinney
Box #4___1_______0_______1_______Richard LeParmentier
Box #5___1_______1_______0_______Paul Blake______Davide Fabbri
Box #6___1_______1_______0______________________Cat Staggs
Box #7___2_______2_______0_______Garrick Hagon
Box #8___0_______1_______0_______John Berg

The sketches that I got were absolutely incredible! I'd like to thank the artists for putting in so much time and effort to come up with
these masterpieces. I finally got my first Cat Staggs sketch and it's awesome! Clap

You got a great case! Good choice for a first post. Excellent sketches all round and the first Fabbri i've seen with colour.

Looks like everyone is opening a case - I just got one box.

I got a baseset minus 24 cards

a bunch of extra commons

Boxloader - 104

2 Blue foils - 88, 111

No red foil or gold foil

Puzzle cards - 7 each

No sketch

Autograph - John Williams

some thoughts - I had really wanted a sketch when I saw some of them that had been posted on Card Talk, butr I've also seen a lot of unspectacular sketches as well. Even though it's a sticker auto, I do like the Williams auto.

The puzzle cards are pretty lackluster. Whats the point of having them fit together like a jigsaw when they will mostly be put in 9 card sheets?

I would have liked to see better collation with this set. I was missing 24 cards, but I had a big stack of extras, with 2 extra of some.

On the plus side, the base cards are great, one of the best Star Wars sets ever. I also like the retro 70's cards with the foil stamp, a nice touch.

I'm not done with these, I'll be buying lots of packs, and maybe another box.

Good work on the great pulls some of you have been finding. Now - will one of you please pull a Harrison Ford auto!?

Opened 2 boxes:

2 base sets
2 box toppers (118, 124)
2 autos (Hagon & LeParmentier)
2 red foils (26, 97)
4 blue foils (3, 40, 55, 104)
16 puzzle cards

NOTE: The #118 box topper was completely "blank" on the back. Did this happen to anyone else?

Now, if you know a Friendly Dealer™Wave that stocks supplies, you might see if the 3 pocket pages for proof sheets would work to put all 3 puzzle pieces in. Might be too loose a fit, but I'll have to give it a try once I sort out my puzzle pieces.

OK.... Time to finish the opening of my 1st Case.

I stopped at 6 boxes (8/2/07):

Here's the breakdown:

Box 1:
Topper: 181 Red Foil: 106 Blue Foil: 30, 45 Puzzle: 9 total AUTO: Lorne Peterson

Box 2:
Topper: 105 Red Foil: 84 Blue Foil: 51, 64 Puzzle: 8 total SKETCH: Leia by Sean Pence 1:1,640 Big Grin

Box 3:
Topper: 195 Red Foil: 108 Blue Foil: 3, 12 Puzzle: 8 total AUTO: Carrie Fisher 1:6,561 Eek Clap Luv You Elephant
(The box is not done......then Gold Foil: #92 (27/30) 1:287 Gold Foils are every other case (1:12 boxes). Thumb Up

Box 4:
Topper: 50 Red Foil: 33 Blue Foil: 46, 59 Puzzle: 8 total SKETCH: Luke by Sean Pence 1:1,640 Big Grin
then Gold Foil: #12 (10/30) 1:287 Smokin'

Box 5:
Topper: 195 (duplicate) Red Foil: 84 Blue Foil: 51, 64 Puzzle: 8 total SKETCH: Obi-wan by Robert Teranishi

Box 6:
Topper: 136 Red Foil: 60 Blue Foil: 13, 113 Puzzle: 8 total SKETCH: Sand Person by Fabbri

Now ... I actually thought I would be done with the case. I figure I got everything major and all would be left were autos. Trade/sell the boxes, but I thought ... A Hot Case deserves finishing!

Box 7:
Topper: 135 Red Foil: 60 Blue Foil: 61, 72 Puzzle: 8 total SKETCH: r2-D2 by Craig Rousseau 1:4,920 Big Grin He only did 106 sketches. Clap
then Gold Foil: #39 (15/30) 1:287

Box 8:
Topper: 150 Red Foil: 42 Blue Foil: 39. 54 Puzzle: 8 total Auto: David Prowse as Darth Vader 1:4,920 Dance Elephant Eek

I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS CASE!!!

(3) Gold Cards !!! (2) Sean Pences !!! (1) Rousseau !! (1) Vader Auto !! Drool and my Leia Auto !! Luv You

No B.S. .... for all the bad cases I've read ... there had to be a Great one.

Enjoy!!!
