That truly sucks...even more than the monkey sketch I got in my one box of Indiana Jones heritage. At least I got that cheap.

Did you notice the seller on ebay that had what seemed like 15 or so Target sketches? I find that so weird considering how so many of us can't even find a box or more than one.

I wonder if there was a way to order the Target boxes other than from Target.

Either that, or the person has cherry picking down to a science. Shake Head

Not sure about that but there is clearly a pattern to the pack placement or some other way of discerning which pack will have a Sketch going on there. All the more reason to pass on any boxes missing packs, especially if they are only missing one.

I've seen sketch card 'hot packs' for sale indicating the packs contain red sketch cards so there clearly is a way to cherry pick these.

This is why I prefer blaster boxes. . .

I also pulled a Denise Vasquez Sketch of Zam Wesell the other day. She ONLY did 50 Target Sketches. That's right, no hobby sketches. It is also a beaut!! It was featured on Star Wars.com in an interview with her. Consequently, she only drew female characters with no character duplication!!

Nice pull Chris! You will be happy to know that Kate and John Watkins Chow are both exclusive to Target packs.

I figured as much. Cherry pickers ruin all the fun. Haven't seen any blaster boxes for Galaxy 4 yet.

I don't think that there will be any box blasters. Topps usually has them out before or at the same time as retail single packs.

Great pulls Batman & cverdec! Thumb Up

If I find any unopen boxes I might try for some, but as long as they're open I'm staying far, far away. The open box at my Target has been left unsold with the same amount of packs for a week now. It could be the cherry pickers are driving away intereest in open product. Roll Eyes

Batman-

Have you really pulled 5 Target Sketches? Is that out of 5 boxes? If so, GREAT LUCK!!
Thumb Up

I have 4 so far from 5 boxes. 4 came from partials boxes, and ironically the 1 sealed box I found didn't have a sketch. I am still holdiong the other full box I found for OTBD. It's killing me though!!! Razz

Well, I just got back from the two Targets near me... nothing at one as usual and the same open box at another with the same amount of packs.
