The Good:
Excellent looking set overall. The foil box loaders are fantastic, featuring the 'Women of Andromeda' and the sub sets are also very well done. The set covers both seasons 2 and 3 plus the character profiles and technology profiles. Like most Inkworks products lately, the boxes seem to break like clockwork. The set looks like this:

90 card base set
9 foil card Battle for the Commonwealth puzzle set (1:11 packs)
6 foil card Fraginle Allegiances set (1:17 packs)
3 Women of Andromeda Box Loaders
1 Andromeda Ascendent Die Cut Case Card
6 Autographs (1 Per box):
    Kevin Sorbo (Dylan Hunt)
    Lisa Ryder (Beka)
    Lexa Doig (Andromeda)
    Gordon Michael Woolvett (Harper)
    Steve Bacic (Rhade)
    Laura Bertram (Trance)

6 Pieceworks cards (1 per box):
    Dylan's Jacket
    Harper's shirt
    Beka's top - 2 versions
    Andromeda top
    Trance's purple outfit


The Bad: Some of the CGI shots are awfully dark on the base set. And the 9 card puzzle plus 6 card set is very standard. Odd that they pieceworks are 6 but I have a PW7... At least one auto is also by redemption... And the frustrating fact that only one of the autos is not a repeat from the first set; A6 Steve Bacic as Rhade.

The Breakdown:

Box 1
2 base sets
3 BC Puzzle Pieces: BC6, BC7, BC8
2 FA Fragile Allegiances cards: FA1, FA6
1 BL-1 Box Loader: Rommie
PW5 Dylan's Uniform (basic black)
A6 Steve Bacic Thumb Up

Box 2
2 base sets
4 BC Puzzle Pieces: BC2, BC3, BC4, BC5 Big Grin
2 Fragile Allegiances cards: FA4, FA5
1 BL-2 Box Loader: Beka
PW7 Harper's Shirt (cool pattern throughout)
A5 Laura Bertram (Trance) Redemption Drool

Overall a nice set, but one that the collectors might not have been ready for quite yet...

This doesn't bother me so much as it's been a couple of years since the first set came out (which I missed out on since I hadn't seen the show then) and most of the autographs seem to be going for a pretty high price.

Ed,
you said

it's not that odd - remember, the Pieceworks continue the numbering from the first series.

The autos however, don't continue and start over at A1- which makes it confusing because you'll have A1 Sorbo from the first set and A1 Sorbo from the second set - so people will need to be very specific when posting eBay listings...

I am really happy with this box. Have to keep letting my friend choose the boxes for me.
