Well...where to start?

First, the Fantatic Four have nothing to do with the Avengers, so I do not see any problem there.

Second, I belive that it has already been mentioned that they were talking about a new cast for any future FF movies.

Third, While Dr. Doom got his start with the Fantastic Four, he was also a general baddie in the Marvel universe including some well noted battles with Iron Man.

Planned to head to the comic shop today to grab a box of Upper Deck's Iron Man 2...let me say that I was peeved that RA was overlooked for this set as they did an AWESOME job on the first Iron Man movie, even landing Robert Downey, Jr. as a signer. RDJ didn't sign for Upper Deck's product, but I still wanted to give it a go...glad I did Smile

I read a few places that said you're supposed to get three hits per box...two sketches and a mem, two mem and a sketch and maybe an auto in every four boxes. I had FIVE hits in this box and each one better than the next. I'm willing to bet that this one box is better than any case I could have hoped to open.

In "Top 5" style...

NUMBER 5


I don't know my Iron Man characters since I hated Iron Man as a kid (RDJ made him cool in my eyes). If anyone can tell me whose chin this is, well, pin a rose on your nose. I guess it's part of a puzzle sketch, but how on earth are you going to get the other three?



NUMBER 4


Again, another character I'm not sure I know (is this Black Widow?) but I was thinking how cool it would be to pull a painted sketch. This is it! Beautifully done in oil and water and MAN does this chick look gorgeous...move over Daphne from Scooby-Doo! Not certain who the artist is as they did not sign it...


NUMBER 3

Normally this would be "Number 1", because Gweneth Paltrow worn ANYTHING is tops in my books, but she gets topped by these two...

NUMBER 2


I know, I actually hit an auto and not only did I hit one, but I hit THE one. Again, no Downey to pull, but Mickey Rourke is the big name of the four who signed. How can this be #2??? Well, number 1 came in the second pack of the box...

Holy. ****.

I sat there STUNNED for about five minutes. This was the first hit out of the box and I was sure the rest would suck...as you can see, this was probably the best box I know I would ever see from this product. Like I said, I'm done. I ain't touching this stuff again because anything I pull will be **** compared to this.

Good work, Upper Deck...VERY good work!

Congratz, nice pulls! Hope my ONE box will hold as many hits. Talk about a nice return on investment.

Triple B, the characters on your sketch cards are Jack of Hearts and Black Widow.

Nice box.

Thanks all...I was absolutely stunned to say the very least...Raj, any idea who the artist of the painting (Black Widow) is?

It is Joe Pekar, which I noted on the thread that you created re: your box. I also posted a small pic of the full piece on the Frank Raposa Jack of Hearts.

First round of boxes finally arrived, didn't open them all yet but here are the first 5 boxes:



No autos yet, but I'm happy with the sketches, especially the Tony Perna Spider-Woman. Onward!

As far as hobby boxes, there is an insert in every pack, 3 die-ciuts per box, and approximately 10 cover cards and 8 armor cards per box.

It's pretty clear that this is one of the best Sketch sets ever, and certainly in regards to comic book characters. Not only are there a lot of actual Marvel comic book artists participating, but the repeat-a-sketches and quick-draws seem pretty minimal.

I missed the Hobby pre-order opportunity on these, but did manage to land a retail case, of which hopefully I can post the results here next week. If it's got even half the hits of a hobby case, I'll be satisfied. I've already bought 3 single sketches from Ebay, each awesome, and I'm not a rabid sketch collector by any means.

Congrats on the great pulls, everybody (and I mean everybody!)

My dealer is sending me retail boxes, and his distributor assurred him that UD told him they are the same as hobby boxes. The boxes which I just got, which are "hobby" boxes, have no wording on them stating "hobby", so I have every confidence that they will be the same.

I hope that's true, but the solicit I got for these said 6 boxes of 48 packs each. The regular boxes only have 24 packs, I believe.

And also, the writeup noted Signature and sketch cards were possible, but made no mention of memorabilia/costume cards (which is perfectly OK since that's my least favorite of the three "hit" types).
