Well, it's officially release day in my time zone. Several have already hit eBay, so it's no surprise some people got theirs a little early...

I busted one cars so far...

??? Base sets. Lots, but not sorted yet
??? Parallel Set. Looks like I could have one, but not sorted either.

Quotable: 2 Sets (9) + 1, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9
The Houses: 2 Sets (9) + 1, 3, 5, 6, 8, 9,
Win Or Die: 2 Sets (5) + 1, 3
Shadowbox: 1 Set (6)

And the expected 24 autographs:

Richard Madden as Robb Stark (Bordered) Limited (Lower End)
Aidan Gillen as Petyr Baelish "Littlefinger" (Full-Bleed) Limited (Upper End)
Alfie Allen as Theon Greyjoy (Full-Bleed) Limited (Upper End)
Conleth Hill as Lord Varys (Bordered) Limited (Upper End)
Emilia Clarke as Daenerys Targaryen (Bordered) Limited (Lower End)
Elyes Gabel as Rakharo (Bordered) Limited (Upper End)
Esme Bianco as Ros (Bordered) Limited (Upper End)
Harry Lloyd as Viserys Targaryen (Full-Bleed) Limited (Upper End)
Ian McElhinney as Barristan Selmy (Full-Bleed) Limited (Upper End) x2
Isaac Hempstead-Wright as Bran Stark (Full-Bleed) Limited (Upper End)
Jack Gleeson as Prince Joffrey Baratheon (Bordered) Limited (Upper End)
Jamie Sives as Jory Cassel (Full-Bleed) Limited (Upper End)
Jerome Flynn as Bronn (Full-Bleed) Limited (Upper End)
John Bradley as Samwell Tarly (Bordered) Limited (Upper End)
Julian Glover as Grand Maester Pycelle (Full-Bleed) Limited (Upper End)
Kristian Nairn as Hodor (Bordered) Limited (Upper End)
Maisie Williams as Arya Stark (Bordered) Limited (Upper End)
Maisie Williams as Arya Stark (Full-Bleed) Limited (Upper End)
Owen Teale as Alliser Thorne (Full-Bleed) Limited (Upper End)
Rory McCann as Sandor Clegane "The Hound" (Full-Bleed) Limited (Upper End) x2
Mark Addy as King Robert Baratheon (Full-Bleed) Limited (Lower End)
Michelle Fairley as Lady Catelyn Stark (Bordered) Limited (Lower End)

Overall, happy with what I pulled.

Since there are no Very or Extremely limited autos in the set, it's a bit hard to tell for sure what will be a "better" auto other than just anything in the "lower end).

I love the attention the characters get in the base set. Way to go Rittenhouse!

Still waiting for my Smallville boxes to arrive and now this has already been released AHHHH.

No Lena Headey busted yet out of those two cases, but an Emilia Clarke in both, so maybe that one won't be too hard to get.

My Case breakdown:

Bordered-Lower End Limited

Lena Headey
Mark Addy
Jason Momoa
Art Parkinson

Bordered-Upper End Limited
Alfie Allen x2
Esme Bianco
Harry Lloyd
Aidan Gillen
Jerome Flynn
John Bradley
Elyes Gabel
Julian Glover
Maisie Williams
Miltos Yerolemou
Rory McCann x2

Full Bleed-Upper End Limited
Rory McCann
Aidan Gillen
John Bradley
Jamie Sives
Owen Teale
Conleth Hill
Jack Gleeson

I ended up with 16 complete base sets, 2 complete quotables, 2 House, 2 You win or you Die, 1 complete Shadowbox set and 1 complete parallel sets. I was left with several base cards, 6 House insert cards, 6 Quotable cards, 2 You win or You Die cards, and 24 base parallel cards.

The case card was numbered 841/900.

The base & insert collation was spot on. I'm not happy with the doubles and though I'm not happy with limited lower end cards I received (except Lena) when I do the math it appears I got what I should should have. So not bad.

I know it's still very early in the breaks but I'm noticing a pattern with some of these cases. So far I've seen at least 5 different cases which featured the same 3 autographs being the "biggest" hits: Richard Madden, Michelle Fairley and Emilia Clarke. Maybe it's just a coincidence though.

I was also able to make 16 base sets.
I'm one card short of a full parallel set (#4). Perhaps it's mixed in with one of the base sets. I have to go back and check.
It also worked out to one full shadowbox set, and 2 sets of each of the other inserts.
I had a relatively small stack of doubles left over, but that's fine.
Overall, 5 lower limited autographs so I'm pretty pleased with that. Hopefully Logan's correct and my next case will have a Madden, Fairley and Clarke, as well as a Headey and Coster. By the box, here are the break downs:

A little disappointed, the same and yet not the same!

yes, that shouldn't have happened, the two autos should always be different actors

I would imagine when you're filling 9500 boxes it's bound to happen. It would mean less randomness if they had to sort everything so it could never happen. We'd end up with cyclical boxes instead of near-random.

Got my box today - #4730 - here's what I pulled:

1 base set 72 cards - the base cards are really nicely done, I can't wait to sit down and start reading the backs. Half the set is character cards, so you can keep track of the extensive cast.

28 extras, 8 Parallel. The parallel cards are garbage, at least mine are, all of them were cut off center, by as much as 1/8th of an inch, cutting into text on back.

2 house cards - H5, H7

2 Quotes cards, Q1,Q4
1 You Win or You Die SP2

2 autos
Full Bleed Alfie Allen as Theon Greyjoy
Framed Conleth Hill as Lord Varys

1 Shadowbox - Cersei Lannister
This is my first shadowbox card, I really like it.
Overall a great set, although could have done without the parallels.

I finally got my case today and I think I have to be in the running for the worst case of Game of Thrones opened yet. I was only able to make 1 set of any of the insert sets since I was shorted a You Win Or You Die Card. Here is the list of my 24 autographs:
Full Bleed
Jason Momoa
Jerome Flynn
Alfie Allen
Elyes Gabel
Art Parkinson
Mark Addy
Rory McCann
Miltos Yerolemou
Aidan Gillen
Maisie Williams
Ian McElhinney
Esmo Bianco

Bordered Autos
Jack Gleeson
Kristian Nairn
Maisie Williams
Owen Teale
Aidan Gillen
Elyes Gabel
Conleth Hill
Jamie Sives
John Bradley
Kit Harrington
Harry Lloyd

I don't think I have seen another case breakdown that I wouldn't have traded mine for. I think it might be time for me to quit opening any boxes and just buy master sets. I know I should have done that for this set.

Aside from your missing You win or die card, thats a pretty good pull, no doubles on the autogrpahs Dosnt look like you got a lot of doubles on your bordered vs full bleed either.

Love the Kit, Maisie, Addy, Gleeson, Momoa, McElhinney, Alfie.

So what are the top pulls so far for the set, Emilia Clarke and Lena Headey autos (excluding Bean and Dinklage of course)?

Yes, the top pack-pulled autos appear to be the 7 actors who only signed one style card (bordered). Emilia Clarke and Lena Headey have separated themselves as being the 2 biggest hits. Then I would say in close order are Kit Harington, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, and Michelle Fairley followed by Richard Madden and then Charles Dance. That's just going by the sale prices.

Bought two boxes and they arrived today. I was pretty excited to get them -- I honestly cannot remember the last boxes I was able to afford to buy -- but the reality was... not so good.

Box #1 -5457
Quotable Q4 and Q8
Houses H1 and H8
You Win or You Die SP2
Autographs -- Alfie Allen full bleed and Owen Teale bordered

Box #2 -497
Quotable Q3 and Q8 Frown
Houses H3 and H8 Frown
You Win or You Die SP5
Autographs -- Kristian Nairn full bleed and Alfie Allen bordered Shake Head

Honestly, maybe the most disappointing box break I have ever had. This is only the third time I have purchased multiple boxes of a product, and probably the last time. I really did want an Alfie Allen autograph card, and was excited for the first one... and gutted when I saw the second one. I feel bad about it, but this terrible break has soured me on the entire set. I purchased three cards on eBay right after breaking these boxes, and a few hours later, I regret it. It's silly, I know.
