Picked up a Blaster Box today -
8 packs with one Medallion card

39 Base cards
10 Parallels in various colors
1 Blueprint
1 Portrait
1 Sticker
1 Rey Continuity card
1 Red Character Illustrated card (Target exclusive?)
3 Last Jedi Illustrated
3 Last Jedi Resistance (1 purple parallel 151/299
1 Gold Medallion card Porg 24/25

The base cards are nicely done, some have text on back, some are devoid of any descriptive text. Most of the inserts are really nice looking, love the Illustrated set and Portraits. The poor Blueprints have to be some of the most boring cards in existence. The medallion is nice looking and mine has lots of Gold on it.
I'm just starting on this set, but I think Santa Claus is bringing me a blaster and packs in a couple of days... Yippee! Cards for Christmas!

The medallions are definitely among the best looking ones they've made.

Opened three Wal-Mart Blasters,
10 packs, 6 cards each

Average results...
39-40 base per box
1 Medallion Emblem gold NNO#
0-1 Rey card 1:24
1 stix 1:12
1 Redline Character 1:8
1 Portrait 1:12
2 Resist 1:6
2 Blueprints 1:6
0-1 parallel chase: Blueprint purple parallel 1:415 43/299, Portrait purple 165/299
3-4 Illustrated 1:3
Parallels: 1 red 1:12, 2 Purple 1:6, 2-3 green 1:4, and 4-5 blue 1:2

Overall C+/B-
Pros: medallion(best so far), chase, box, wrapper, and most parallel designs.
Cons: Chase OVERKILL, Rey chase 1:24, Red parallels tend to blend in with the base, set completion will take at least three blasters likely 4-5 blasters, the numbering font can also be hard to read and deceiving. Watch those 5,6,8,& 9's especially.

I opened one hobby box.

1 base set
11 blue parallels
6 green parallels
5 purple parallels, one of which is a blueprints card
2 red parallels
1 silver parallel
8 Illustrated cards
4 Blueprints cards which included 2 of BP-8
4 Resist cards
3 Red Character Illustration cards
2 Portrait cards
2 Sticker cards
1 Rey Continuity card
1 Medallion card, C-3PO with The Resistance emblem
1 Autograph card, Tim Rose as Admiral Ackbar

The cards are nice overall. The red and silver parallels don't stand out as much from the base set as the blue, green and purple prallels do. The 6's and 8's on the numbering look a lot alike. The medallion card is one of the nicest medallion cards that I have seen out of any of the Star Wars sets. Autograph cards are listed as 1:52 on the back of the package, so I was happy to pull an autograph out of this box.
