Breakdown of 1 50 pack box.

One full set of the trading cards (distributed as 2 per pack)

This consists of:

One full set of Were Rabbit puzzle cards

(another almost full set missing number 9)

Two full sets of Veg-B-Big puzzle cards

Two full sets of Victor Quartermaine Puzzle cards

(and a spare 1 and 5)

One full set of Giant Vegetable Competition puzzle cards

(spare 1x2, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7x3, 8, 9x2)

Two full sets of the Anti Pesto Puzzle cards

(spare 1x2, 3x2, 9)

One full set of 60 stickers (distributed as 3 per pack or 2 in a pack where you receive a PVC sticker)

12 PVC stickers (from this box it seems that they are distributed one in 4 packs)
(10 different, 2 duplicates: 1, 8, 9, 10, 11x2, 12x2, 13, 14, 15, 16)

I'm very pleased with this - it's a great set (well the source material always makes me grin) and I like the way it's been done, and I was pleased to get a full base set of the trading cards and the stickers and then over half of the PVC stickers.

This has whet my whistle, I hope Cards Inc will go ahead and make a full monty card set with autos/props/sketches and maybe even a spare splodge of plasticine Big Grin

One box for me too ...

50 packs of 2 cards + 3 stickers (all 2-1/2" x 3-1/2"). PVC "Scene Cards" (really die-cut stickers, not cards) displace stickers in the collation.

2 complete sets of 45 cards (five 9-card puzzles) with 9 extras. (Expect 2.22 sets on average if collation were perfect.)

1 complete set of 60 stickers, 11 short of a second set). Expect 2.30 sets on average.

12 "PVC Peel Off Scene Cards" (the chase). Sarah got the same, so we still assume an average of 1:4 packs. I also got 10 different with 2 duplicates (1, 2, 5, 7, 8, 14, 15, 16, 17x2, 18x2). My dupes matched Sarah's missings and vice versa, and there's no way they came from the same case, so there probably aren't any short-prints.

50 packs, 3 stickers per pack = 150. Subtract 12 for the stickers displaced by the chase. Take 138, divide by 60, get 2.30 on average "with perfect collation". Wink Of course, if we always had perfect collation, we wouldn't have to post our box breakdowns, and there would be a lot less trading activity!

I want to open the box I won here, but am saving it to give to my girlfriend's son for Christmas. He loves the Wallace and Grommit movies and is also a card collector. Thumb Up

I bought a few boxes of these (they move very slowly I expected they would be faster sellers but then 99p for stickers is a bit much when you can get harry potter for 35p and you get more stickers.. oh well

Needless to say we did a full box over the space on a month becuse it was mostly for our 5 year old lad.

No set of stickers, missing number 9

One set of cards Vic. Q

NONE of the other card sets, I have a massive stack of rabbit cards number 1 and number 9. Something went **** up in colation here. At £49.50 a box retail I expected better, but from cards ink I am not shocked. I wouldnt have minded so much if it hadnt been aimed at kids, you cant make the odds that long on something for kids guys thats just wrong. We got 12 of the 18 red stickers as well. I'm not very impressed.
