Surprise, my daughter picked this blaster, retail version up at target for me.
Have not seen the show. Roll Eyes

10 packs, 7 cards each (6 card/insert & 1 sticker)
1 commemorative patch guaranteed.

58 base (no dupes, appears to be 100 card set)
8 character stickers 1:2 (20 set)
2 stickers 1:6 (20 set)
2 character chase 1:4 (10 set)
1 patch card green 3/50 Steve Harrington

Base parallels available:
Upside down 1:62, waffle 1:556, Christmas lights 1:6173
Patch parallels available:
orange 1:47, green 1:90, purple 1:165, blue 1:431, gold 1:4568

Overall grade: D-/F+
Pros: 1980's retro design base & stickers, patch design
Cons: crazy parallel odds, box & wrapper design (maybe too much bright yellow), no chance at a autograph with retail, and extremely poor base collation.
Five blasters still 10 cards shy a set. WARNING!!! Mad Twak Mad

Looks like hobby boxes are not released until 23 November. Got an artist return in the post today and bought another couple.

Picked up a blaster when I was wal-mart for the fun of it.
I got
56 base cards
9 of 20 regular stickers
1 insert sticker 1:6 #9 concerned brother
3 character cards 1:4 st7,st14,st18
1 upside down parallel 1:62 #87 numbered 77/99

1 per blaster patch p-op officer Powell

Overall a fun little blaster. Might pick up another and trade to finish a base if I don’t make it!

I did pick up a second blaster. 4 cards shy of a base set and 4 cards shy of the 20 card sticker set. Got 2 new character and 2 new 10 card sticker set cards. The patch was of psp of Shepard.
Going to throw a trade list up to get those last 4 base cards then I am done!

Well, the ADVISORY was issued. However, you did better than me. Five blasters and still 10 cards shy on two sets. UGGH!!! Twak
Thankfully, I just completed a trade to finish the two sets, and made progress on the chase and stickers.
LMK what four cards you need. Wave

I got my other box today and did really well with it!
Pulled the normal base, chase and stickers and these hits:

Black printing plate from card 37 #'d 1 of 1
And a very nice sketch of Eleven by Eric Lehtonen

I just saw today that Topps announced that Series 2 is to be released in April!
