Finally got my box of this product - I was not disapointed.

1 sketch - War of the Worlds by Rich Molinelli
1 base set of 49 cards, 1 set missing 2 cards
4 of 6 Creature from the Black Lagoon cards
1 of 6 puzzle cards (I should have got 3)
1 Box bottom card

i still have another box coming, still hope to get an auto, and looking for more inserts.

I like the size of these, I have the 2 large 8 x 10 promos, I think these would have been great.

I finally was able to buy a box of this product and here is what I received:
The Death Song sketch card by Mike Lilly
Creature From the Black Lagoon: 1C 2C
Invasion of the Body Snatchers: P3A P3B
Day The Earth Stood Still: P2B
2001: A Space Odysse: P1B
1 Complete Base Set
2nd Base Set 1 card short (10)
19 Extra Cards
Mummy box card

Breygent should get plenty of praise for thinking outside the box on this set. The oversized cards are perfect for this collection. The combination of autographs and sketches along with some nice inserts gives the collector a great deal of bang for their buck.

My only beef with this with set is what posters were selected, in other words what was or wasn't included in this set. It seems rather hit or miss, as we start with Metropolis (1927) and barely hit any movies from the 30's or 40's, which is considered the Golden Era of horror movies. We have a nice block of posters representing films from the 50's and then a smattering of posters from the 60's. We even have two flicks from the 70's, which makes me wonder what the criteria was for being included in this set?

All in all I love this set and will definitely be buying the binder. Hopefully many of the more famous movies that were excluded from this set will be in a follow-up release, which I would definitely buy!

I Picked up a box of this at a recent national show in London.
I planned to keep it for OTBday but gave in last monday an cracked the baby open.

This is an awesome set and Breygent as a manufacturer has risen in my estimation to the #2 spot in the card makers top ten.

I pulled 1 full base aet and these chase cards
Creature from the Black lagoon cards 4,5 & 6C
2001 A space Odyssey P1B
day the earth stood still P2B
Invasion of the body snatchers P3B
Dana Wynter Auto card DWAC
and Flying Discman from Mars sketch card by Travis walton.
UI have also found a Binder and missing chase cards on eBay which should arrive soon.

An amazing set and I now [b] NEED [/] to find a box of the Hollywood poster cards.

I find myself wishing the Bregent would get the Star Trek & Bond franchises.

Got a good deal on a couple more boxes of this.
I got a full base set in each box as well as 3 Creature From the Black Lagoon cards and 3 different puzzle cards in each box.

The first box had this great Chris Henderson sketch:

The second box had ANOTHER great Chris Henderson sketch AND a
Ray Harryhausen autograph card!

Very happy to get my first 2 sketches from Chris Henderson! Not to mention my first
auto from this series!

After buying 4 boxes of these, I ended up with a whole bunch of base sets, 1 full chase set and lots of doubles.

I received the 4 sketches as advertised and one autograph card.
Here's my sketches for those who'd like to see them.

DELIZ Persampieri KONG kong

All of them extremely cool, methinks! The artists really took advantage of the larger space to give the cards fantastic detail and they didn't spare the colors either. On the ones by Brian Kong, the color bled all the way through to the back, which I love. And I'm really glad to have a Renae De Liz, who always impresses.

This is another great offering from Breygent and those who haven't got a box yet, don't wait too long, since the boxes definitely won't last forever.

(And check the box breakdowns of Breygent's new "Celebrity Movie Posters" set to see my sketches from that awesome series, which in addition to teriffic original art cards, boasts one of the finest base sets ever issued!)
