Well I wasn't planning on getting a box but on the way to the movies I stopped in the shop I frequent and they had them at a reasonable price (plus I get a 10% preferred customer discount which just about negates the sales tax) so I got a box as well as some packs of Xena and Angel 4. My box broke down thusly:

Box Topper- 1/2
Foils- 7/10, 8/10, 9/10, 10/10
Autograph- Christopher Lee (Saruman) Big Grin

Congratulations!

I was thinking Christopher Lee very loudly when I opened my boxes but it didn't work. Smile

Odd, I was thinking Liv Tyler when opening the packs but I can't say I'm disappointed, I can always trade it or sell it and use the funds for an Arwen since I don't have any of them yet. Maybe I'll pop down and get 1 more box later, as long as you don't get a box with no auto you can't really do badly on this product. Smile

If you don't have a trade arranged, p0ls email me @ the addy above. I'll gladly trade my Arwen for an Aragorn.

Well, I finally got over to my local card store and asked them for a sealed ROTK box. They said they just sold the last one!!! But there was an open almost full box. We counted up the packs and it was missing only one pack! I was afraid it would be the pack with the auto and they said they remembered the kid that opened the pack and they were all base cards. Yippie! I bought the packs went home and ripped them all open and finally! Got my first auto Big Grin
THEODEN (blue ink). The store also gave me the box topper! They are really nice there and they have a party room for kids to have birthday parties where they have all kinds of games and contests so I always donate my extra base cards to the store.

Congratulations, Wendi!

Feels good to pull an auto, doesn't it...?

Ok here is my box breakdown I opened today, I will give you the other three boxes later.

Box Topper 1 (Already have two of these, that I know from my other two boxes)

Prisms 1,6,7,8,9,10

Autograph John Noble as Denethor (Just ok, I don't have it, but nothing spectacular) His signature is in blue sharpie and looks like a mess too.

Rise up, my unholy Horseman!
Come forth again through the Tree of the Dead..."

Hey Gang Wavey

My entire weekend revolved around getting to the comic shop and picking up a hobby box! No earth shattering news, but here's how it went down......

2 Base Sets
Bonus Foil #1
Foils #1 2 3 4 9 10
Faramir auto.

I didn't know there was going to be a box topper, so at first I thought I landed some sort of big time bonus when I saw the little white envelope on top of the packs Big Grin

My hubby and I are thinking of mailing small # of Christmas cards in the cute envelopes. Time to break out my Stamping up stuff and make cute cards of my own to fit in there.


I have enjoyed seeing what everyone is getting.
Congrats on all the great pulls!

In honor of daughter going on pointe soon.- Charstar

opened 3 more cases yesterday here is the break down

1 x Saruman
3 x Aragorn
3 x Figwit
2 x Sam
3 X Pippin
1 x Arwen
2 x Faramir
1 x Eomer
1 x Richard Taylor
1 x Bilbo
2 x Gollum
2 x Denethor
2 x Theoden (both in Black)

So 1 full set and to make it even better I had a full set from the first 2 cases.

and 13 full sets of prismatics and with the spares from this and the last cases I made up another 3 sets
so more sorting of base sets to come

however there were a high number of miss cut cards in 3 boxes.

Lee 1:2059 (1:86 boxes)
Astin, Boyd, Hill, Holm, McKenzie, Mortensen, Noble, Serkis, Taylor, Tyler, Urban, and Wenham each 1:1550. (1:65 boxes.)

My breakdown of the box is:
