I dug up enough cash to get that last box of LOTT TTT cards at the store... figured it was my last shot at the TTT cards for awhile:

2 Complete Base Sets
7 Foils (2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9)
1 Autograph (Peter Jackson)

Pretty happy with the results... Got 7 foils instead of 6 (2 in last pack), and Peter Jackson may win Best Director next year, and after that will do another tired remake of "KING KONG" Roll Eyes

As you read, I sent out a notice about the OL autos that were missing, Wednesday early morning... I look in my mailbox, and see the RA Logo... yippee!! Just looking at that made my morning... inside was even better!! Wink

There were 6 I wanted (Asner, Robertson, Culp, West, Shatner, Nimoy): I figured with 18 autos, I'd hopefully get 1...

I opened the package, and as soon as I pull it out, I see Ed Asner's 'graph staring at me! Big Grin Big Grin Bouncey Clap Elephant

So then I open the little team pack with the autos and a couple of promos (Irwin Allen, Xena, Enterprise) and the next auto was:

Adam West Dance Dance Bouncey


I am soooooo stoked! Rittenhouse made my 1 OL auto box a grrrrreat one! Thank you thank you thank you so so so much!! They didn't have to be so generous... I am eternally grateful!! Bouncey Dance Bouncey Dance

Here are the results from my Scorpion King Box i bought from UK Paul at Milton Keynes on Friday.

From my very first pack in the box yielded the PW1 Rock Pieceworks Redemption Card Elephant Woohoo!!

so i got....

PW1 The Rock Pieceworks Redemption
A5 Bernard Hill Auto redemption card
BL1
Future King P1, P2, P9
Visions of Sorceress S5, S6

And hopefully a couple of base sets (haven't collated yet)

I think i'll keep the Rock P/works, and maybe the Bernard Hill Auto (depends if i like it when it arrives) but all the other chase cards except are up for trade.....

not a bad pull Big GrinBig GrinBig GrinBig Grin Especially for the price.... Thanx Paul (i owe you a pint)

I and my daughter,Julie, have just cracked open our 1st (and probably only) Disney Treasues box that I picked up in MK on Friday from UKPaul's stall.

I is very nice looking set, Bit surprised that Dinosaur was card#1
Here's what we found in the box

I almost complete base set (just missing #20, 45, 61, 65 & WD1).

Only one duplicate card #47. Anyone need this card?

we got 22 of the 45 Micky Mouse cards

3 Snow White cards (odds are 1:10)

1 Film Reel card PH2 Fantasia,

sadly no sketch cards

and 1 card that was scribbled on by a Walt somebody but as it was damaged i trashed it....



Just Kidding folks, No such luck in the Buckton Household.

Reportsd on the B5 & bond boxes coming shortly.

Never give up - NEVER surrender

Ok, I did this one in a separate post because it is just so awesome!!

So, at the Philly show I hooked up with Minime and asked him to use his 'powers' to pick me a box of Xena Beauty and Brawn. He picked the box and even picked the packs that the inserts came in! He is quite amazing! I plan to have him pick my boxes from now on because I have no luck with boxes.

So here's the breakdown:
BB2 #151 of 999 (the xena side) - first pack he told me to open!
AC1 Claire Stansfield auto'd costume card!!
DC1 Autolycus double costume
A24 Melosa autograph
XS4
KS2, KS4
AW4, AW5, AW7, AW9
& a full set of Footsteps w/ some left over.

A totally awesome box!! It was really cool that he picked almost all of the packs that the inserts came in! Very Cool!

Congratulations on such a good box!

It's a real shame that MiniMe doesn't post any more... Frown

Is there a particular reason for this?
I don't get a chance to read the board as regularly as I would like but even I've noticed MiniMe's absence... Confused
Have I missed some great debate?

I don't know why he doesn't post anymore, but he seemed really busy. I did bug him about coming back though Big Grin

I do miss his wealth of knowledge here on the boards.

Ok, so it's years old. But I just bought a box for a good price and decided to open it. I Got A nice box, 24 really nice wrappers, and I was 13 cards short of a set. I was able to trade some cards and wound up being 3 cards short. My box seemed to have a a bigger ratio of higher numbers. I am wondering if interest in the old set will pick up with the release of the new cards.

I finally got a box at a decent price while at the Philly show and here's what I got:

1 base set
37 of 72 for a second set
7 triples
3 rare cards - R4, R5, R6
1 ultra-rare card - UR2

I'm happy with the collation, but this set has some BIG problems. Most if not all of the cards in my box had scratches and quite a few are off center. Mad Also, a lot of the images are rather fuzzy. Maybe they look better with the viewer, but without one many look out of focus. Overall, I was disappointed. Shake Head

Been wanting one of these for a long time. Finally took the plunge.

Here's how she broke:

Base sets: 15+ (stopped counting)
Box Loaders: BL1(3), BL2(3), BL3(6) = three sets with a boatload of extra BL3's Frown
Case Loader: 1 (very nice case loader)
CIA 47: 3 Big Grin
Secret Lives Puzzle: SL1(3), SL2(3), SL3(3), SL4(3), SL5(3), SL6(1), SL7(2), SL8(3), SL9(3) = 1 set, 1 card shy of 2 sets, 3 cards shy of 3 sets.
Double Agent: D1(3), D2(3), D3(2), D4(2), D5(3), D6(3) = 2 cards shy of 3 sets (I already have those 2 cards!)
Autographs:
A1: 1 Dance Dance
A2: 2
A5: 2
A6: 2
A7: 1
Pieceworks:
PW1: 2
PW2: 1
PW3: 1 Elephant Elephant

I am totally, utterly, completely stoked! Just like I dreamed it. It's been a tough month. This is an excellent thing. Yea for me. Smile

OK, I'll stop now.

No I won't, but I'll do my celebrating off the board so as not to annoy.

Cheers all. Smokin'

Also broke down a box of Terminator 3 tonight...

2 Base Sets
3 Chrome cards (of varying quality on the edges) C3, C4, C5, C6

and...

A2 Kristanna Loken as T-X Dance

This box must have been destined for someone else, I just knew I'd be getting another hearse material card.

Actually, I think you're allowed to celebrate. You got one Master Set, and one of the toughest to complete in recent years Yay you! Big Grin
