Here’s the breakdown for my 2 boxes of Memorable Moments (bought from a UK dealer):

Box 2486/3750

Box Topper – BT3
CC1 and CC2
R1, R3, R4, R6, R8
DC5 Krum / Diggory Costume Card 164/275
Auto – Maggie Smith (whoo..hoo!!)
2 base sets

Box 3450/3750

Box Topper – BT3
CC1 and CC2
R1, R2, R4, R7, R9
C4 Goyle Costume Card 468/535
PC2 Lupin’s Shirt / Marauder’s Map (with writing!!) 082/110 (whoo…hoo!!)
2 base sets

Plus with the spares from each box, I managed to make up another base set.

I’ve found the Maggie Smith auto and PC2 card listed on ebay - both are selling for around the £100 mark each so I’m really happy with my boxes.

I think you'll see that happen over and over. In my case (so to speak) it was just U.S. left coast versus right coast, but my case broke down as:

C1
C3
C3-P1
C4-PC2
C4-P3
C5-Sykes
DC1-Sykes
DC2-DE4
DC4-Bradley
DC7-DE6

And another poster had reported a case with (you're getting ahead of me here):

C1
C3
C3-P1
C4-PC2
C4-P3
C5-Sykes
DC1-Sykes
DC2-DE4
DC4-Bradley
DC7-DE6

The box-toppers and the puzzle cards were differently distributed and the resin box held a different part of the pattern. I've seen five "clusters" of case composition so far.

Just opened my case (almost) haven't touched the resin box. Still am looking at it going ahhh pretty.

Autos
Emma Watson
Eric Sykes
David Bradley x2
Olivia Higginbottom DE5

Costume
C1 - 406/660
C3 - 406/660
C4 - 024/535
C5 - 039/360
DC1 - 029/310
DC2 - 011/235
DC3 - 413/460
DC6 - 200/235

Prop
P3 - 114/160
DP1 - 088/150

2 full sets of box toppers w/ extra BT1
4 sets of foil with several extras
Fawkes case topper

Wondering if I should open the resin box or save it for "that auction site". Odds say there is a prop and a costume in there. Since I haven't had any duplicates on the costume cards, I would guess that is probably a dup, but not sure about the prop (probably just a single).

if your talking profit and future finances to buy the maggie smith auto, you sell the box no questions asked. You already pulled 5 autos, and 2 props, INCLUDING A EMMA! You have rolled the dice, and they came up 7. Now, you punt the box and put the money from that and maybe the extra auto into a isaccs or smith auto In my opinion. excellent break btw, scans?

Comments : Duplicate Bradley auto, duplicate Crabbe costume , duplicate Goyle costume, no Sykes auto, no Sykes card at all
Resin box looks superb but the inner removable plastic tray spoils the effect as does having only 1 dowel-like peg to hold the lid on
Normal boxes look great too
Base set itself is disappointing as the images are all sepia ( and very small ) and the text is also muted

This pattern reared it's ugly head for a case my friend opened. Has anyone had missing coin cards? I was under the impression they were guarenteed 2 per box, but she had 4 boxes in her case without them.

Did I miss something, or has no one in the forum pulled an Emma Watson? I figured at least one would pop up here. Confused

Can you make a list of the "clusters" you seen?

As others have said, I think the base set is disappointing. Whilst I applaud Artbox for trying something different in didn't work (in my opinion)

I almost hesitate to broadcast information that might promote "case searching," but the breakdowns are publicly posted and it would be easy enough for anybody to come to the same conclusions.

I've seen only 5 combinations of autos in 17 case reports:

  3 - Watson, DE5, Sykes, Bradley, Bradley
  4 - Smith, DE5, Isaacs, Bradley, Bradley
  5 - Smith, Isaacs, Sykes, Sykes, Bradley
  2 - Isaacs, DE5, DE3 or DE6, Sykes, Bradley
  3 - DE4, DE6, Sykes, Sykes, Bradley

Ha, that's kind of funny that it can be simplified so much. Kind of takes the mystery out of it. I would like to see a more random mixture. Thanks for the breakdown..... :-)

Even more interesting than you thought! You were lucky enough to get six autos from your case. One of the other cases was unlucky to get only four ... Isaacs, Bradley, DE5, DE6, missing the Sykes, but I included it in the "pattern" anyway. So maybe your case stole his missing Bryce.

The sample above isn't a huge % of the total cases, so there might be some other groupings we haven't seen. We saw breakdowns for 37 cases of Goblet of Fire Update, and only 6 auto clusters.

Yeah, I just read that post in GoFU, but I didn't quite understand it. I posted you there....
