Default 2012 Topps Mini box break w/ mini-monster Trout

The couple box breaks I saw from the National looked interesting enough, so I decided to order a box. I ordered it about 5 days before release date, and I was quite disappointed that it did not ship until the day after release, thus making me wait until Monday to get the box. I was toying with buying another couple boxes to try to complete the set, depending on how much I liked the product. 24 packs in a box for 50 bucks. Here's the hits and inserts, in order in which they were pulled:

Bam! First pack of the box! These black parallels (yes, black according to the pack back...they're platinum...) are #d/5 and fall roughly in every other box. And to pull a Jarrod Parker RC was pretty sweet! I figured I made my money back in the first pack. Next few packs:

Golds are numbered /61, and Golden Moments are the only insert set.

Autos are 1 per 6 boxes. I pulled this about ten packs in. Though there's better than Drabek, they're all doing quite well on the secondary market. I was pretty excited to pull one at all after the Platinum. I figured anything else after this point was icing on the cake.

Woo hoo! The Ozzie for my pc! Mmmmm, icing....

Pulled a Darvish base RC around this point as well.

At this point I was stunned. The print run is limited, so there are a couple plates in every case, but I couldn't believe I pulled one after the other two hits. It's Ryan Sweeney, by the way.

I was just cruising to the finish line at this point, planning my victory doughnuts, then in the 3rd to last pack:

I guess the plate was the icing on the cake, and this was gold flakes sprinkled on top......I was stunned after the plate, I was giddy after the Trout. Sure its no monster like the break below but I'll call it a mini-monster.

Obviously I was ok with having to wait until Monday for the box. What a box! I think I'm going to have to order a couple more to try to complete the set. The golds, auto, and platinum are for sale or trade for nice Ozzie Smith but will probably hit ebay tomorrow. Thanks for looking!

Maybe the base Konerko, but I'm gonna order another couple boxes to build the base set. I'm addicted to basic Topps, love the classic designs, and I've really been into mini stuff lately. (the $ I'll be making from these helps as well...) Yep definitely gonna hold on to all the base, and I think the Golden Moments as well, though that'll be a bit of a task.

So is this kinda like 2012's "Update Series"?
It's 2012 Series 1+Series 2 in mini card form?

It's kind of like a parallel in its own packs, with new autos and relics. Update is more like a series 3.
