Looking at the base set, I think they did nice job over all with. I really only see a few names like sentry and sunspot as characters are most known... the rest of the list I can see people chasing maybe for at least a base card. Guess no printing plates either in this. That's a disappointment also.

so today we se shipping notices if Wednesday really release day. Sure wish we could see a preview from upper deck on these... scares me they haven't.

Looks like Canada got these cheaper, see them selling at 240 a box when converted to us value. So I'm guess e pack price of around 220-240

Sighs taking a big hit I guess at 250 a box in the US. They really jacked up the price it seems right off.

Why wouldn't there be printing plates? And what kind of preview are you looking for? They did the usual sketch preview a few weeks ago with a few inserts thrown in there too.

I do miss the ~$150/175 initial price point of MP12. But the box price of this is probably going to stay ~$250+ with the seemingly shorter supply until ePacks unless the set really underwhelms. We'll have to see.

I just meant a short video where they open a box like they did for 2012. I didn't see plates as part of the checklist, but guess makes sense have plates to make the release a bit bigger.

Plates were on the cardboard connection checklist for 2014, but not for 2012. I can't recall if 2012 had plates or not.

Any guesses on production run here? Or does anyone have physical odds yet?

My guess was 825 but that wasn't counting plates as hit which is not shown as a premium hit any where on the sale sheet. So I guess more like 875ish if a plate is counted as a premium hit

55 base x125, x50, x10, x5 / 2 per pack = 5225 packs / 6 = 870

Consider some of that gets held back for replacements and some cases get extra... 825-850

So here is what I pulled out of my 6 boxes. I am in love with the way the classic art shadow boxes came out. I love mixing the classic with modern.

It has Ant-Man in it. It's based on "The Basket of Apples" by Cezanne.
