The release is limited to 8000 boxes, each box is individually serial numbered out of 8000 on the foil sticker that seals the boxes.

My local comic/card shop got their 4 boxes in today. 1 was already open and a few packs already gone so I bought a bunch of loose packs, 20 total and I also snapped up 2 of the 3 remaining boxes. I also scanned my 2 case incentive. Click on the pictures for full size versions.

Breakdown-

Loose packs-
2- greatest enemies
1- mightiest heroes
1- Grant Gould Captain America sketch

Box #7521 of 8000

Proper number of inserts
1 Renae DeLiz she-hulk sketch

Box #7287 of 8000

Proper number of inserts
1 Mark Texeira Spider-Man sketch

Picked-up 5 loose packs from the local comic shop today. I was lucky enough to pull a Renea DeLiz sketch. Not sure of the character or the significance of the scene though. Anybody of any ideas? Thanks, Brandon

I'm pretty sure the character is "Angel", as for the scene it simply looks like he is soaring skyward. Very nice sketch and a great find for 5 packs.

Thanks for the info. Its funny that you mention that it looks like he is soaring skyward, because to me it looks like he is falling backwards. Guess it all depends which way you look at it.

Maybe naenae will peek at this thread and let us know what her intent was with the character, nothing like having the artists themselves lurking on the board. Smokin'

Just cracked another case, only 2 boxes left that I sent with my dad, and he will probably crack them over the weekend, only dissappointment is that after 70 boxes I have not pulled a single spiderman. Frown Some really nice other sketches though!!! Smile

Don't I see spidey in that Auck sketch? Razz Out of curiosity, did you come close to a set of all the artists from your 70 boxes?

Had a lot of fun opening my case...
great cards and great sketches... I too haven't seen a sketch card that I haven't liked yet!

Only downside was that I didn't get a complete set of both the Mightiest Heroes and Legendary Heroes ...

Click on the link to see images of the cards, and please feel free to supply me with the characters names or correct me if I have got any wrong Big Grin

sketches

P.S. None of the sketches are for trade or sale, I can't bear to part with any of them... Smile

Niiiiice! BTW i think the character unnamed is Grim Reaper. If you haven't got trades for the MH and LH you are missing let me know in a couple of weeks (I am about to be on holiday) as I can probably help.
