Matt can you tell us what is Hobby only - not going to be on ePacks. From the checklist it appears the Dyson packs are hobby only. How about the base cards - will they be digital only on ePacks like Marvel Annual is? Any other cards that will be digital only?

So I don't buy many Upper Deck boxes, I see a box would yield 60 cards, would one expect to get a full base set, since it's only 50 cards?

You are only looking at the single autographs. Autos appear in other places such as the Dyson cards. There can be more than one in any given case (on average). Looking over my paperwork, you should be able to get an auto or sketch in about every other box.

Everything listed will be in hobby. The Dyson SP & SSP's will be a hobby exclusive. The base cards will be digital in ePack. All the parallels and inserts will have physical counterparts.

You should end up with 45 base cards in a box. I believe the base cards are 3/pk.

Thanks for clearing that up Matt.

So for every 5 16 box cases, 3 should have 4 actor auto cards and 4 sketch cards and 2 should have 3 actor auto cards and 5 sketch cards (based on the pack odds per the checklist and assuming the 2 8 box inners of a case don't both contain a sketch as their 24th hit)

wow thats pretty brutal for the autograph list especially when you stack it up next to its predecessor in Thor: The Dark World.

Maybe it's just me but I'll take a Spider Man Homecoming box over this any day of the week. Glad I held off asking my store to get this in.

Please clarify re: base Dyson 1-40 - these will also be in ePacks? Only the SSP and SP Dyson will be in hobby?

I'm with you! Homecoming and Ragnarok cost the same per box. One has an auto/sketch per box and one has an auto/sketch every other box. Eh...

I think this was $68.75. Is that what Spider-Man was too?

Just noticed that the other site has a very incorrect description for this set:

"One Sketch Card Per Box!
One Actor Autograph Per Box!"

If it's the site I'm thinking of, that's not the first time they've screwed up descriptions on a product. I believe Firefly Upper Deck still says there are Alan Tudyk autos in it, when he definetly didn't sign for the set.

2 actor autos and 2 creator autos per case has historically pretty much been Upperdeck's jam for these Marvel Movies sets

The quality of those sketches on eBay so far are pretty subpar.

This seems like it will be a discounted product on BO before long.

Taika has an auto as Director, not just as Korg! I definitely need that in my collection The costume card designs are unique.

Also: What's going on with the Prized Possessions autos - they have little chains in them?

So he has one as Korg and as director? Gonna have to try to snag one, I got a Justin Lin auto from ifish's Star Trek break, it seems only natural to go for a directors PC XD

Someone just posted a triple relic for sale on eBay.

Those have to be the smallest relic windows I've ever seen.

I was excited about this product, now it's starting to become just laughable.

The design works well with the single relics. But the others your eyes glaze over and you have to try too hard just to see the swatches. The idea was cool to incorporate the swatches into an image but it's a fine line. With these you lose the swatches in the image instead of highlighting them. Autos looks nice from an "at least it doesn't look like Doctor Strange" standpoint. Overall these Marvel sets have continued to be subpar. I know it can be quite the challenge to put value into packs, but at least make the cards look nice! That alone would make them more collectible!!! Marvel Upper Deck chase cards are just not attractive. The Marvel license is huge with a massive fanbase that loves to collect! So why the effort to turn off fans with every set? I really wish Rittenhouse still had the license. Could you imagine what these sets would be like?!?!

Devil's advocate- I actually really like the design of the relic cards, but I like weird stuff. I did have to blow up the picture to see where the relics were though, at first glance they blend in and are easy to overlook.

The best part of the set so far are the base cards... They look amazing. The Grandmaster's Prized Possesions Autos are cool too

I'm certainly glad I collected, and kept, all my auto's from the first set of Thor!! Dang what an awful actor checklist!

That makes me happy, as I've been trying to focus more on collecting base set. Is the set normal card stock?
