Here's the breakdown:

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 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:

Box 8:

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!!!



Hey raywoo! AWESOME case break!! CONGRATS!! Thumb Up Just a huge piece of useless trivia: that sorta-profile Leia of mine you pulled was actually the very LAST sketch I did for this set...it was done about 30 minutes before the cards were off to FedEx!! Wink

Two boxes for me:

BOX 1
Base Cards: 1 complete set
Parallels: 2 Blue, 1 Red, 0 Gold, 1 box-topper
Triptychs: 8
Sketch: Robert Teranishi (of 600: Chewbacca)

BOX 2
Base Cards: Missing 31 cards from first set
Parallels: 2 Blue, 0 Red, 1 Gold (#3, 20/30), 1 box-topper
Triptychs: 10
Sketch: Ingrid Hardy (of 206: Greedo)

A bit of arithmetic from the numbers of gold parallels and quantities of sketches confirmed by the artists says that there are about equal numbers of Hobby and Retail packs, with about 2500-2600 8-box Hobby cases and half that number of 16-box Retail cases. That means that there were 10 Harrison Ford autographs signed, and 75 each of Anthony Daniels and Carrie Fisher.

Box 5:

Box topper - #112
Blue Parallel cards - 2
Red Parallel Cards - 1
Puzzle cards - 8

Box 6:
Sketch: Tarkin by Robert Teranishi - very nice!
Box topper - #77

Box 8:

Summary:
The base set looks great. The variety of images used gives it a fresh look.
All the box toppers in my case are in the Red Series.
The puzzle cards do not look very good in a binder. I was hoping with the 3-panel approach this would not be so.
I was happy to get a mix of autos and sketches. I absolutely HAD to get sketches!
I got one duplicate blue parallel.

My First Box Breakdown (two more arriving Monday).

Base:
1 Complete Set
36 Doubles
No Triples+

Parallel - 3:
Blue: 2 - Card numbers 32, 114
Red: 1 - Card number 1
Gold: 0

Tryptic Puzzle - 8:
Escaping Fate - 1, 2, 3
Imprisonment - 1, 2, 3
The Underworld 1, 2

Auto/Sketch - 1:
Auto: 1 Joe Viskocil
Sketch: 0

Ratings:

Collation 10/10:
Awesome: Complete base set, the exactly correct number of parallels and puzzle cards, and 1 Auto. And it was nice getting 2 complete sets of puzzle pieces (and 2/3 of another).

Photography 9/10:
Most of the pictures are crisp and clear. And there's some really nice candid shots, as well as some obscure pictures in there. The shots from the Holiday Special are extremely clear too. Looks like Lucasfilm may yet have a really nice print of it. I've seen a horrible VHS version; maybe one day we'll get an official DVD. There are a few blurry/grainy pictures, but they're exceptions to the rule

Set Design 7/10:
Overall, pretty good base set design with themed borders. Nothing spectacular though. The puzzle cards are pretty cool, if slightly annoying to store. I'll hang on to a base set, as well as put together a puzzle set. But the blue, red, and certainly gold parallels I'll leave to the super completist types out there.

Condition 8/10:
The Topper was in not that great of shape. Some of the cards had some whitening/chipping on the left side (of Horizontal cards).

My Box Break 5/10:
Completely average. I got exactly what the odds stated, no more, no less. The Auto was pretty weak, but the red #1 was pretty cool. I'm not complaining about the bad auto; them are the breaks. But that alone really make the box completely average. I'm still holding out hope for the two boxes coming on Monday that I'll get a nice sketch or decent auto, and maybe even a gold.

Overall 9/10:
My opinion based on the mere 1 box I opened. Results may vary following the next 2 (or more) boxes.
