I'm not even buying a box of KOTCS cards. I bought a box of Heritage and got one autograph and a sketch card but not even one complete set. That was $50 dollars. So far on Ebay, I've gotten a Vogel, Monkey Man, Donovan, Wu Han, Kao Kahn, Katanga, Butler, and Henchman autograph cards for anywhere between 4 and 8 bucks each. Plus you can buy a base set for like 2-4 dollars on Ebay right now. I'm going to just get a set of KOTCS cards on Ebay cheap and pick out the autographs and some sketches that I want and buy them seperately. You might get really lucky and pick up a rare autograph but I'm going to save my money on a box and just pick things up as singles for the next set.

50$ for a box? Wow! Is that in a US comic store or on Ebay?
I saw some sealed boxes in a comic store in France last weekend and they cost 94$ a box!

Quite a steep price...
Well, actually it's effing vertical!

I got it for 50 at my local comic shop here in Pennsylvania.

Brandon said he found some at his local Hollywood Video store in OK.

Yeah, that's right. That card was in the third pack of 5 cards, I bought. It was a nice surprise, as I didn't even expect to see the Topps cards sold in Australia at all. And to get an autograph card, even more awesome considering the odds (apparently 1:42 to get one autograph card). I also have a parallel card too. I got that in my fourth pack. I've also got two poster art cards, both from Raiders. So I did pretty well considering.

Out of interest, how much is each pack in the States? It's $5 Australian per 5 card pack. But hey, at least you got a Sketch card. I would love to get one of those. I'll have to save my money up for more packs.

I guess it depends on where you buy them. One place has them for $2.99 and then I just bought some today for $2.00 even. Both are comic shops, I guess the owner has a little room to decide what to charge.
I also bought a second box and I can't decide what to do with it. I already bought one box and managed to make a complete set on the first run. I pre-ordered the second box before I bought the first box. I may sell it but what if there is an autographed Harrison Ford inside. AHHHHHHHH I'll have to think about it.

Having said that, I only just found out Topps' own online store has them for just $47.95. D'oh! Ah, well. At least now I know where to get any more hobby boxes, should I decide to do so. Now I just need to find the closest and cheapest outlet I can for the retail ones so I can see if I can get some magnets...

If you got three boxes with 360 Parallel cards, I'd say you're stupefyingly, ridiculously lucky.

(I assume you just mean Parallels cards are the only specials that were in your boxes.)

Honestly, while I can understand it being disappointing, I don't know that it should be a huge deal. Ostensibly you're paying for a pack of five cards, and if you get five cards you get what you pay for; the inserts are supposed to be extra-special bonuses, not something we should expect or feel entitled to. How many Parallels did you get?

Actually, strike that; I do have to say I think I can understand being a bit disappointed, especially since if you're buying more than one or two boxes you're undoubtedly doing it specifically to get some of the more interesting chases.

That said, hey, the Parallels are still neat, aren't they? I wonder whether any full sets will be put together...

You can get full sets of parallels on eBay, though I don't really know why. I think I got around 10 or so from a full case. They don't really excite me all that much. I am still keeping my eye out for the retail boxes, of which I haven't seen one. I do want the magnets, but I don't even think they've shown up on eBay yet.

Did you get the magnets? I'm looking for a set of the magnets since no one in my area is selling them.

Hey all... I'm still trying to finish my set and I keep getting doubles. I'm soooo close to finishing the LC section too. I can't buy, but I am happy to swap cards of equal value.

Anyway here's the doubles I've got for swapping:

9, 17, 28, 33, 37, 42, 47, 58, 68, 82

Here's what I'm looking for:

2, 6, 10, 14, 16, 19, 20, 26, 29, 31, 32, 35, 36, 38, 43, 45, 46, 48, 49, 50, 52, 53, 57, 60, 61, 70, 75, 78, 84, 88, 90

Btw, I got a new autograph card! I got Gobler this time. I now own two autographs and I've only bought something like 15 packs of 5. And I finally got my first pack of 7 for KOTCS so I will be trading on those once I start getting doubles.

Where's Alison Doody's autograph? Seems like they've got everyone but her, including the monkey.
