Nicely done, yeah COMC is the place to go for epack releases, it's a dumping ground. I picked up a reasonable sketch last week for a whole 13.49!

Still, buying packs is all about the very short term thrill of the chase....isn't it ? ;)

For the most part I would agree with you but with the higher end inserts such as the PMG and Jambalaya not really interesting to me I much prefer the nostalgia feel to the base and the base inserts, so “value for money” particularly for X-Men and trying to find them for as cheap as possible is also a bit of fun cause let’s face it it will be a bitch to ship the whole 150+ Base set back to us...

New Aliens set released today, this one very soon after the physical release. Not too sure we needed another Alien set, the others look like very slow movers. I tried 4 packs and the best I got was a die-cut acid blood card (it has holes in it!), so I reckon I'm done!

They have a weekly predator promotion going too you get free packs of predator cards with every alien purchase 2 base cards released every week collect every card and redeem for a sketch or something like that, week one is already sold out

Sold out before I even saw the promotion essentially locking you out of the challenge

It's an ordinary set,

On a side note I have almost finished piece of a xmen set together for the price of almost 5 packs not including metals or higher in the inserts

grabbed a few packs of Aliens tonight while flipping between a crap NRL grand final and the actual Aliens Movie and bagged a red glow

Autograph of Cynthia Scott (Which would be cool if I didn’t already have one from Anthology)

Yeah, I've stopped buying them for now. I bought some more after pulling the Wong, but haven't got anything besides a couple of cels and metals and there's not much value in those either...

Held off for so long getting in to these as it is far to easy to buy them.

Got bored around christmas and got 3 packs of Antman & Wasp, hit a Goggins auto in the first pack. Well that was easy I thought, this stuff must be loaded (haha). 6 packs later, absolutely nothing. Decided that was it, no more.

Had a spare few bucks today and caved in, I got
Inifinity war * 1 - Nothing
Antman & Wasp * 3 - Lilly relic
GOTG vol 2 *1 - Nothing
Thor Ragnarok * 3 - Hit a PMG Hulk which I thought was cool (not worth anything but my son is Hulk crazy) and this

266566


Pretty stoked as I have looked into buying an auto of his for some time.
Not sure what this means for me moving forward though, probably be hard to beat and expensive.

Awesome hit !

Yeah, the epack stuff is nice and convenient for a quick fix, unfortunately I invariably regret the spend after breaking the packs LOL!

Ragnarok was awesome though, it was very good to me. Ant Man & Wasp has only delivered a single and triple relic out of 9 packs so far. Thankfully the price point for a pack is pretty nice though. Infinity war was a great set, but that pack price is a killer !
