I'm a little confused by the distinction that seems to be made regarding "dealer only" cards from this company. It is a UK card manufacturer and I have never tried to buy directly from them, which I guess they don't do anyway. But then I don't really buy boxes directly from any makers, I always place an order with some dealer or pick up the more popular products that my LHS normally brings in.

Case and multi-case incentives are quite common and generally wind up in the hands of dealers first because it has become a form of compensation. However big premium hits are still seeded, rare is the situation that the best autographs or premium hits are the incentives and no alternative, if less limited card, is not seeded.

To my mind the autographs I want most that were advertised as being part of the set are of Bain, Tate and Schell. They have 6 total, 2 each. Of those 6 cards, 5 are disclosed now as being "dealer only". Just 1 Schell is seeded, that's it. So exactly why did I order a box? Maybe I'll pull that 1 card, but I wouldn't bet on it. Wink

I'm very lucky I ordered only one box and that was just because no one could give me an accurate release date or I would have bought more. If this is the norm for Unstoppable, as people seem to be saying, there is no reason what so ever for collectors to buy boxes from dealers. Just pick up the cards after the dealers do the business of breaking them or write it off altogether.

A certain furry cardtalker has been saying this for years. Wink

If Unstoppable put all the advertised cards in their product it would be good but their ratio's of 1 or 2 of things and these dealer incentive cards mean the best way is to wait and buy on e-bay - this company almost discourages the box buyer with it's random odds (same as when they traded as Strictly Ink). The shame is that this is a UK company with some good niche shows, but they just don't deliver enough.

Reading between the lines at comment made on their Facebook page. UFO is delayed one month to August rather than the "guaranteed July release".

Anyone know where the SPACE 1999 WEB1 promo was available ?

Says limited to 100, but only 2 have shown up on ebay

Not the same as promo WEB-E1, totally different

No promos were ever available via the web or facebook page. Why they are called WEB is mystery.

Someone told me that the WEB1 promo was a pre-order incentive if you bought boxes thru the Unstoppable website by a certain time, which I did NOT Frown

Yes, Tommy, I've only seen 2 on ebay. I guess the other 98 went into collectors' hands ?

UFO seems to be shipping this week

If you buy the 3 box / binder deal from Unstoppable's website it looks like you're paying roughly $ 55 a box

And the British Horror set is supposedly coming next, in November

To the best of my knowledge this set releases this Friday and will be limited to 999 boxes.

Each box contains a full base set and a full set of foils so no need to chase singles, it would be pointless anyone breaking these up into individual cards.

The binders seem to be 200 or 300 depending on who you talk to and may include something or may not, can't find anything conclusive on this.

It appears that each dealer will have his own special promo card as per previous releases.

Each case will have a promo set for new releases in it limited to 100.

This should be a really nice set, lets hope so. Smile

By golly. Miracles do happen. Got my order lunchtime. Nice set, still sifting through case. Will do a breakdown later. Briefly: got 6 sketches 4 plates. Autograph distribution is sporadic but not bad. Ended up with 4/5 Paul Scottmans in one case! Oh and two of the autograph cards are by a second unit director! That's a little disappointing especially as there were six in the case.
On the whole fairly happy but a little disappoint by auto set up.

I think you have used the word "disappointed" on every Unstoppable set

Not the set itself. It's good. Just let down by the wasted potential. I hate criticising but there are shortcomings sadly.
The distribution has always been a problem but that's the nature of trading cards. I suppose.
