Has anyone seen or heard of the "big hits" being pulled yet? I've been viewing the video breaks on You Tube and this product seems kind of lackluster so far.

I think you're probably expecting too much...I've been pleasantly surprised by the breaks I've seen. Haven't seen a horrible one yet.

Big hits are pretty scarce. For what might be considered big I've seen:

1- Jennifer Garner Alias season 2
4- Kristen Bell Veronica Mars Season 1
1- Kristen Bell Veronica Mars season 2
1- Jared Padalecki Supernatural season 2
Ozzy Osbourne The Osbournes- A lot of these, almost every case has had 1

Once I get a little extra moolah in, I'm buying a box. They look very fun. I've seen some cool stuff pulled: Ron Perlman, Mike Mignola, Ron Glass, Ozzy, Kevin Sorbo, Erik Estrada, Mimi Rogers, etc.

I think people were expecting every box to have a Jennifer Garner, Eliza Dushku, Kristen Bell, Rose McGowan, Holly Marie Combs, etc in it. I expected those to be case hits. I expected boxes to have 1 or 2 decent hits and 3 low end hits.

Most of the breaks I've seen seemed pretty good to me. Nothing super high end outta the ballpark, but a good mix.

Exactly, at $15 per card, it's ok, but nothing extra exciting. I just don't see the attraction to this product. It seems like something for nothing , to me. There are a bunch of those people on here, no question.

I would suggest that they are going to be much less than that. Inkworks had very few of these high end cards sitting aound. Remember that advertising is just that - ADVERTISING. It only requires 1 cards of a "high name" for it to be included in the advretising hype.

Totally agree, most of the cards will be low end autograph that can be purchase in Ebay maybe from $5-$10, but the boxes of this product is not that high and can be a nice try to hit the big ones if you feel lucky!!!

maybe if they hadn't sold all the good cards on ebay before the product was released they could have included those in packs also Smokin'

How many Lost Lilly cards did they sell? and has anyone pulled any from packs yet???

Isn't there also a second wave planned?

That's what I heard. This stuff is fool's gold, as far as I'm concerned. I'm looking forward to Harry Potter HBP and X-Men Archives. I love busting new stuff!

There does seem to be some good stuff coming out of these boxes though- there's been a few Robert Englunds, I just saw a Veronica Mars Charisma Carpenter on eBay, some Buffy Reflections autos, Serenity, Firefly, etc. I am definitely gonna try to get at least a box of these. (When I have some more money...)

I ain't knockin' it yet. I've seen good boxes and bad boxes, but 5 autos on card for $80 or so isn't that bad considering some of the stuff from newer boxes for the same price point. That said, you are paying for 'hits' and not -cards- for a set, you know? I'll buy -a- box but it will likely end there.

Check the box breakdown thread. A Kristen Bell Veronica Mars autograph was also pulled. The best card I got was the Viveca A. Fox Alias and that is better than a common. I quite agree that most cards are going to be in the $10 - $20 range, but so far that is only moderately less than the current price per pack.

And that's the major detraction for me on this product. As a non seller all I'd be doing is hoping to get lucky with cards I don't already have and not get stuck with cards I don't need.

Seeing as though I have so little of everything, I'll take one stab at it, hehe. Just one!
