This was just tweeted out, maybe they're having site issues?

What a rip off. Iím not at all surprised, but that mark up from what you can get physical boxes for is BS. All the deep pocket Epack users will still buy it though, so itís whatever

Just wow. If they wanted these prices they should have released epack a longggg time ago. Though I'm not sure 300 would have ever been a good price.

Be interesting to see the sketch quality per box. Only chase really is artists that arnt in the physical release like Jason Adams. Is there a list of other artists that are just in the e-pack release.

Damn, physical boxes (including the tin) can be had for around $220-230. Why $300?

Glad I bought into iFish's case break instead - much more affordable!

Agreed. Super exited for that break. Me and my brothers got a bunch of spots Hopefully it gets randomized soon

Ouch. For $300 I would rather buy a spot in a SW Stellar break.

This is a HUGE gamble.

Typically boxes broken on first day have the best stuff from what Iíve seen so I was anticipating doing a box or two today but that price definitely has me thinking twice

Hopefully they do a half off deal down the road with how high these prices.

I guess when matpat21 said the best stuff is hit the first day, it came true when someone hit the Glebe sketch!

No clue how e-pack is a thing.

Costs more than the physical release? Yep.
Pay for sleeves, top loaders, and inflated shipping? Yep.

"But there's no brick and mortar stores near me." Lil Jonny says on the internet when there's other places to buy online.

Unfortunately I know of one other, and it's an artist I've been a fan of for a long ass time.

I agree, if they ran another one of those "buy one get one free" promos, I'd try some for sure.

As it stands now though, I'm out.

Here are the sketches I pulled a gold Thor Bust insert /15
Got 2 double panel sketches and a Bob Larkin sketch that flashed red when I pulled it which means it is better than the other ones I guess :shrug:

I'm not defending the $300 price --- but... E-pack does have its benefits. The online trading aspect is HUGE!

You're absolutely right in that regard.

Perhaps the price is worth it to some having that sort of included.

Would much rather save $80-100 bucks and have it shipped to the house so that I could open it.

So at least 46 "packs" have been opened on epack so far.

Mannn...I was really looking forward to opening one. But this price is brutal. I knew we were all dreaming wanting it to be in the low 200s range...but I was going to stomach $250 if need be. :/

I'm with you there.

Bought 3 cases on physical release day which is probably small fries to some, but I feel like I did my part.

At this point I'm considering hitting up some of the e-pack artists for commissions instead.

Nope on the price. Just nope.

I have plenty of blank Premier stock if you want a card with your choice of character for a third of the price.
