Can't believe no one has posted anything for this release yet. Anyway, I opened up two boxes tonight, and received:

Base set - 2 complete sets, 8 duplicates
Archers - 2 complete sets, no duplicates
Character Bios - 2 complete sets, 2 duplicates
Suicide Squad - 2 complete sets, 2 duplicates
Green foil parallel - 12 cards total
Red foil parallel - 6 cards total
Numbered parallel - 1 card (base card 39, numbered 09/40)
Autographs - Celina Jade, Katrina Law, Michael Rowe
Stickers - S2, S8
Wardrobe - M05 (The Dark Archer), M17 (Thea Queen)

Good luck to anyone who is brave enough to try and put together the numbered parallel set. At 1:30 packs, it's gonna take a lot of packs to complete that one!

Overall, a decent release. The cards themselves are somewhat dark, in keeping with the overall look of the show. Nice heavier cardstock for the base set, which is always a plus. Great collation on the subsets, basically getting a complete set of each of the Bios, Archers, and Suicide Squad cards. With only 8 extra cards over 2 boxes, the market for base cards is probably going to be virtually nonexistent. I was very pleased to beat the odds on the autograph cards, getting two in one box.

This release seems to be up to the usual Cryptozoic standards for such a release. I've been pleased with their previous TV related sets, and this one is no exception.

Case #3 was the charm. Both Glau autographs and the Cassidy in the same case and none of them in the other two.

I bought two boxes of this release this week. I feel like I got a lot bang for my buck. Here is the breakdown for the first box:

1 base set
all 9 Character cards
all 9 Suicide Squad cards
4 Archers cards, set of 3 with a double of A3
all 6 Mirakuru cards
1 sticker card, S9
6 green foil stamp parallel cards
3 red foil stamp parallel cards
1 silver foil board parallel card, #20 numbered 38/40
Wardrobe card M17, Thea Queen
Seth Gabel autograph card
Summer Glau autograph card SG2 Smile
1 black printing plate card

I was very surprised to pull the Summer Glau card as I had already pulled the Seth Gabel card and was not expecting two autographs in the box. I am happy to have pulled both of those cards. The second box looked like this:

1 base set
all 9 Character cards
10 Suicide Squad cards, all with an extra Z6
all 3 Archers cards
all 6 Mirakuru cards
1 sticker card, S1
6 green foil stamp parallel cards
3 red foil stamp parallel cards
1 silver foil board parallel card, #29 numbered 29/40
Wardrobe card M07, Moira Queen
Dual wardrobe card DM5, Sara Lance and Oliver Queen
Kelly Hu autograph card

I am really pleased with the contents of those two boxes.
