Broke a box when they arrived as several customers wanted to know what to expect.

Boxes are 24 packs of 6 cards, just like the first set.

The first 72 cards are ©2009 while the cards 73 to 84 are ©2010.

There is no new checklist, just the old #72 card Shake Head

The DID fix card #54, it has the correct text and pictures now. Thumb Up

All the chase are exactly the same. Would it have hurt to do them in holofoil or something? Shake Head

My box breakdown:

No base set, missing 2 of the 'old' cards so I imagine I can make that right.
New Moon Puzzle: T5, T6, T7
Volturi Coven: VO4, VO5, VO6
Wolf Pack Puzzle: WP4, WP5
Seeing Alice: SE3
Autograph Card: Peter Facinelli

I cannot say if there is any other autographs, as I got the one I've already seen. It is a new card from the ones available on the Amazon.com Twilight set offer, so that's something.

They could have done so much with this "update" set, but they gave it the least amount of attention possible.

On the plus side, boxes are not terribly expensive.

Did the box give any indication of the insertion rate for the autos?

The front says "randomly inserted autographs"

On the back, with the odds for chase cards it lists autographs at 1 in 24 packs. But there is the standard boilerplate wording that nothing is guaranteed.

Unlike Inkworks, there are no per box guarantees.

Thanks for the breakdown! I will post mine once I get my one box. I really wish someone other than NECA would have got this license. I can't believe you didn't get a base set in the box.

Okay, got my box. I managed to get a full base set, the stated number of chase cards and Ashley Greene's auto. I really wanted her auto too.

I little surprised the auto cards say nothing on the back, not even the name of the actor who signed the card or anything stating its authenticity, but I still like it. Ashley's auto card is the same one sold on Amazon with that jewelry set, but Peter's is different than the one that was sold with the Twilight base set of cards on Amazon.

opened 3 boxes (thanks Ed!) and made 4 sets of the update cards, all the usual foil inserts (no reckless card though) that actually made a full set of foils plus a couple extras. Pulled

2 Peter Facinelli autos & 1 Ashley Greene auto!

My wife broke down and bought some of these at Target before the boxes showed up (she failed her will save). a 36 pack gravity feed box seems to yield 2 autos just fyi. And yes, the Target exclusive "Goodbye" card is in the update set too. Has anyone found Hot Topics with the update cards? Or the older packs being cleared out or anything?

I picked up the last box at my local shop.

1 full base set - including updated #54 and new cards
1 additional updated #54 and 6 new cards
2 - CL1 Reckless
Seeing Alice SE-3
Volturi Coven - VO1, VO6
Wolfpack - WP3, WP4
New Moon Puzzle - T1, T2, T8

I had already bought my wife the jewelry set and had the Ashley Greene auto. The 2 Reckless cards were a nice surprise. All in all very happy this this box.

Released in 2010. This set "updates" the original NECA release by adding 12 base cards (# 73-84) and correcting two original cards (#52 and #54). The card front and back were both corrected with the correct title for #54. The original card-back text for #52 (the same as that shown in the Photocards release) was replaced by the original card-back text from #54. Boxes are 24 packs of 6 cards. Expect 1.61 base sets of 84 if collation were perfect.

BOX 1

Base cards (84): 1 complete set, 47 doubles, 2 threes
Puzzle cards (9, 1:7 packs): T-4 T-5 T-6
Wolfpack cards (6, 1:11 packs): WP-5
Volturi Coven cards (6, 1:11 packs): VO-3 VO-4 VO-6
Seeing Alice Cards (3, 1:23 packs): SE-2
Autograph Card (1, 1:24 packs): Carlisle Cullen
Reckless Card (1, 1:104 packs): none

BOX 2

Base cards (84): 1 complete set, 50 extras
Puzzle cards (9, 1:7 packs): T-4 T-5 T-6 T-7
Wolfpack cards (6, 1:11 packs): WP-2 WP-3
Volturi Coven cards (6, 1:11 packs): VO-4 VO-5
Seeing Alice Cards (3, 1:23 packs): SE-3
Autograph Card (1, 1:24 packs): Carlisle Cullen
Reckless Card (1, 1:104 packs): none
