Stargate SG-1 Season 8 (Rittenhouse)
Whoo!! Got my boxes in this morning!

Box 5762 (sticker on upside-down, so i was hoping this was a Hidden Archive Box that someone was a bit hasty with... No such luck Frown

But still;

2 Base Sets + 47 extras
TW: 2,4,6,8
PF: 1,7
A: 75
C: 30
Plus Promo DS1 Advertising the figures to be released soon from Diamond Select.

First Impressions:
The box is a little big and the packs were "swimming" around inside, but not a problem.

The packs were a little too tearable - good luck to those who try and keep a pristine wrapper!
1 RA reward point per-wrapper, which is good - they're still running this program which means you can save up for the TW10 card (exclusive to Rittenhouse Rewards).

Base Cards: Shame about the numbering error on card #17, but this has been mentioned before so I'll say no more.

Checklist cards have pretty cool fronts, as do the 1-2-3 cards. Pics on the base sets are clear and the dark-blue REALLY works well.

The Behind-The-Scenes set was good, with just enough info on the back for viewers of the show to place the scene.

Shame again that none of the case/binder/multi-case cards are listed on the checklists.

Twisted Cards:
Nice. Thought the glitter was gonna come off at first - like the 'snow-glitter' on Christmas cards that gets EVERYWHERE - but it doesn't.

Personnel Cards:
Also a clever idea, but i've got to find the best way to display them now - probably gonna have to get two sets, one folded open and one closed, but it shows RA is at the fore-front of design ideas!

Autos/Costumes.
Same as always, glad they kept the continuity going - sort of...

Shame about the missing autos, but this is unavoidable at times and i'm fine with it.

It would be nice to know if they will be released at some point, either in the next set of through the Rewards program or whatnot.

One minor issue though - They kept the continuity of Dual Costumes as being differently coloured but:

where's the C35 number? The C12 was numbered, but this one was not... Frown

Anyway, great set so far - will continue to break my case down now...

There's a shortage of box breakdown's for this!
Box 3373
haven't sorted base cards since I rushed here to post.
pf:2, 8
TW: 2, 6, 8, 9.
A76 and r11 were my haul. I'm bummed I really wanted the O'Neill costume card since I have all his and have never had to buy one - guess this will be my first. Of course I also hoped for a67 but not surprised that I didn't get that.
But I love the Twisted cards; I'm thinking of two sets so I can have them displayed both ways. Same with the personnel cards.

An A76 Dan Castellaneta (Joe Spencer) is still a great pull as it is one of the very limited autos. Thumb Up

Hi

i just finished opening my 1rst case and the breakdown is really desappointing.

1* A62 Sam Jones as Aris Boch
2* A63 Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa as Turghan (Limited)
1* A64 Kevin McNulty as Dr. Warner
1* A65 Michael Welch as Young Jack O'Neill
1* A66 Alisen Down as Dr. Brightman
NONE A67 Claudia Black as Vala (Very Limited)
1* A69 Peter Williams as Apophis (Limited)
1* A71 William de Vry as Aldwin
2* A72 Mel Harris as Oma Desala
NONE A73 Isaac Hayes as Tolok (Very Limited)
1* A75 Charles Shaughnessy as Alec Colson
NONEA76 Dan Castellaneta as Joe Spencer (Very Limited)
1* A78 George Dzundza as Jim/Anubis

Costume Cards/Relic Cards

2* C29 Dr. Daniel Jackson
2* C30 Colonel O'Neill
1* C31 Teal'C

1* C34 Kasuf
2* R10 Kelownan Files

As a dealer, i feel really desapointed as no very limited, and only 2 differnets relics. and 2 A63 and 2 A72. i thought it would be far better (about 2 very limited per case).
I still have a case to open, but this case is one of the worst breakdown i ever had from Rittenhouse.

I Have just finished opening my Two Case's and it is the worst breakdown I have ever had on a Rittenhouse Product.

autographs :

2* A62 Sam Jones as Aris Boch
2* A63 Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa as Turghan (Limited)
2* A64 Kevin McNulty as Dr. Warner
3* A65 Michael Welch as Young Jack O'Neill
2* A66 Alisen Down as Dr. Brightman
NONE A67 Claudia Black as Vala (Very Limited) Shake Head
3* A69 Peter Williams as Apophis (Limited)
2* A71 William de Vry as Aldwin
3* A72 Mel Harris as Oma Desala
NONE A73 Isaac Hayes as Tolok (Very Limited) Shake Head
3* A75 Charles Shaughnessy as Alec Colson
NONEA76 Dan Castellaneta as Joe Spencer (Very Limited) Shake Head
2* A78 George Dzundza as Jim/Anubis

Costume Cards/Relic Cards
2* C28 Jonas Quinn
2* C29 Dr. Daniel Jackson
4* C30 Colonel O'Neill
2* C31 Teal'C
4* C32 Major Kawalsky
2* C33 Urgo
2* C34 Kasuf
2* R10 Kelownan Files
1* R11 Map
1* R12 Alien Newspaper
1* R13 Mission Report
1* R14 Operations Manual

So No Very Limited Auto Cards in 2 cases, I would have expected at least 1 per case.

This could mean me canceling my order for the next release, as I can't afford to spend £400+ per Case, and get this sort of split.

All of this after a great Bond release where they released a great set

Dave.

G1 & G2!!! Metal
A big worry (apart from getting neither) was getting two the same...!

Sorry about your luck Blue Horseshoe, but i was quite happy with my cases. Practically a complete set - all i'm missing is the A67 and DA3 autos for a master set... but i suppose i'm not running a business so i've got a slightly different viewpoint.

Hi, Here's the my breakdown. Only got one box for now.

Box number: 5412

2 base sets + extras
Twisted: TW2, TW6, TW8, TW9
SG1 Personnal files: PF6- Dr Fraiser, PF8- General Landry
Costume- C29
Auto- Mel Harris as Oma Desala A72

I must say I liked the Twisted cards and the check list cards.

I got a bit of a strange box.
There was no #17, but two #1's with different pics. Looking at the Checklist I discovered that the second "#1" card was missing a number.
So...technically I'm 2 cards short of two base sets.

All I got for inserts were:

Twisted: TW1, 3, 4, 7
Auto: A66 (Alisen Down)
Costume: C31 (Teal'c)

One pack also had only 4 commons in it instead of 5.
I haven't had an odd box since Buffy Season 5.

I nearly didn't open it as i don't collect Stargate, but the thought of a possible Relic card made me do it Smile

There is no card #17 in the set, so you're not "missing" it. Our on-line checklist shows the correct sequence of cards :
01 Title Card
02 Title Card
03 Title Card
04 New Order, Part 1
05 New Order, Part 1
06 New Order, Part 1
07 New Order, Part 2
08 New Order, Part 2
09 New Order, Part 2
1 (miss numbered) Icon
etc. etc.

So, as long as you have card #01 Title and card #1 Icon, you're fine.

Ah okay. Thanks for that. Smile

Maybe she ran off with Daniel Jackson ! Wink

Seriously though even for a VERY LIMITED card that has got to be a poor split. Frown

I don't normally post break downs, but I can tell you that in my 2 cases I pulled 2 Claudia Blacks. So they are out there.

O'Neill costume card
McNulty autograph card
and G2 Apophis card!! I was sooo excited. It's really a pretty card. And thick.
