Patty just called and said UPS just delivered my case of Boosters, and Starter set. So that assures me at least 2 new figures out of 94... Excellent!
There better at least be some freakin' Jawas and a Gamorrean or two in there, 'cause those were two of my top wants from the Commons and Uncommons, and I still ain't got none!
Also a little bummed, 'cause apparently this local gaming shop was giving out the checklist posters of all the figures - for free last week!
He said he'd hang on to one for me if he gets any more in. They're definitely pretty cool!
I am curious though if you buy a booster case if you are guaranteed a good range of assortment (like Kubricks where you get a full set of regulars a variant and maybe a chase) or they are totally random
They're randomly packed Scott, and the breakdown in each Booster pack is like this (see my checklist above for who's in which group):
1 Rare or Very Rare
All 7 will be unique though, within each Booster, and will give you exactly 11.66% of a complete set.
But after you're through your first 6 - 10 Booster packs, you've probably nabbed most/all of the Commons and Uncommons (16 of each), so then you're really just chasing after the Rares and Very Rares, knowing that you'll be getting a ****load of duplicates with the rest of them at that point.
EDIT: Whoops, you said Booster CASE, not pack. Well, from all the breakdowns I've seen of people's cases, you're gonna wind up with most, if not ALL of the Commons and Uncommons (16 of each) along with several duplicates of many of them, and for the most part, the cases seem to do really, really well as far as not having any duplicates of the 12 Rare/Very Rare figures. So I'd say you're gonna do pretty well altogether if you buy a Booster case. You'd still be 14 Rares/Very Rares short of complete though (with no dups), plus you'd need a Starter set too, to nab the exclusive Luke and Vader in there...
