Okay, my two cases arrived in Australia. I am very happy. As expected, none of the refractor, original art etc but I did slightly above odds (an unsigned Yoda in each case and 5 helmet sketches overall). My sketch selection is brilliant. Thanks to all the artists involved.

Overall, I think Topps did a nice job on this set (apart from the cut off text). The base cards and chase sets have nice artwork and an interesting content. I also think Topps put in lots of different chase sets (though I do wonder about the silver/bronze/gold parallel).

Sketches are (thanks to all the people who helped identify):

Jason Hughes - Leia
Sarah Wilkinson - Yoda
Joseph Booth - Cantina musician
Brian Miller - Tatooine, Jabba's Palace
Jamie Snell - Rohlan Dyre (mandalorian)
Paul Allan Ballard - Obi-Wan (young)
Jason Sobol - "The Purge"
Kevin Caron - Leia in cell



Matt Minor - Clone Trooper
Bruce Gerlach - Darth Maul
Jason Hughes - Han Solo
David Rabbitte - Luke in fighter
Chris Henderson - Lando?
Lee Kohse - General Grievous
Scott Zirkel - Luminara Unduli
Rich Molinelli - Tusken Raider



Helmet sketchs and signatures:




The young Obi-Wan and the Lando are both stunning. Since I am a scene collector, the Rabbitte Luke will be disappearing into my collection.

I absolutely love how the young Obi-Wan looks like the Vintage Sugar Free Gum Wrapper design!

The Scott Zirkel is Luminara Unduli.

I opened two cases. I was really happy with the collation.
Each case had:
4 gold foil parallels
8 bronze foil parallels
etched foil puzzle - 4 per box x 8 = 32
silver foil parallels - 8 per box x 8 = 64
2 artist autos
2 die cut sketch cards
8 sketches
1 Lost Yoda Smile both unsigned though Frown
Lost Galaxy card - 1 per box x 8 = 8

Case 2 also had a black printing plate

At least they have now posted a page that said the list and numbers will be "coming soon"!

The list on Scoundrel is focusing on the artists with confirmed numbers, and is missing a heaping handful of artists who don't have estimated #s. I haven't seen any names added over the last few days, so I think my list is close to complete:

The Boba came from the Brick Target, and the Chewie from Toms River. The Neptune and Howell Targets were duds! Headless could have had a box from Manalapan, but he passed. Damn, we need
more Targets!!

At least you have Targets...the "red" sketches are an awesome idea and it's too bad we don't have Targets up here in Canada Shake Head

So I went to Target to pick up a copy of Killzone 2 for the Playstation 3. I actually went to target yesterday looking for Galaxy packs, but there were none so I didn't expect to see any today. Well I almost didn't even go to the card section but decided to before I checked out...Glad I did. There was an almost fresh box....23/24 packs. I was a little worried, because that Target is hit by pack searchers on a daily basis. Well I decided to take the middle stack of 8 packs anyways and checked out. Went out to the car and could not wait to get home to bust the packs open. 3 Packs in I pulled the Evolution retail insert and in the second to last pack I pulled this Smile




If I am not mistaken, she is a retail exclusive! I was THRILLED, I wanted to hit a Target sketch really badly lol. Well, there was another Target about 15 minutes away. On my high of pulling a sketch I said the heck with it and drove there. When I got there I was pleased to find another box with all 24 packs. I grabbed a stack of 8 and checked out. Opened them in the store lol, I pulled the evolution retail insert and decided to try one more stack of 8...I had driven out of my way so I might as well keep trying. Well in the last group of 8 packs my luck continued in a huge way....




Not only were the odds against me to pull ANOTHER sketch, but to pull one from the artist I collect the odds were astronomical. So I ended up spending right around $75 but walked away with 2 sketches. A good day indeed
