So I go to my FLGS today and buy a pack of FU. To my excitement I open the pack. I find inside a.... flippin' Rebel Cart... What a let down. Oh well, lets see what else is inside. Gotal Assassin, Mynock, Cloud Car Pilot, Elite Hoth Trooper; so far nothing great. Then I see my Rare! Wedge FLIPPIN Antilles. Man what a let down. The ONLY saving grace of this pack was a single Evo Trooper. Biggest waste of $22 I have ever spent.

I will never purchase a huge pack outside of release tournaments again...

That really sucks. Reminds me of the time my brother got a BH booster. Man, was he pissed.
:?
I'm really sorry. Do you perhaps want to trade the Imperial Gotal Assassin?

That's why I don't buy Huge boosters. Too much of a gamble.

all of the boosters are a gamble, its just that huge boosters cost a lot more than regular boosters.

The higher price is why they're too much of a gamble. Less of a chance at pulling something worth more than what the booster cost me.

Wow, I was going to post the exact same thread except here is how my booster draft went:

2 boosters- 2 Tank Droids and 2 Wedge, WTF!!!

So, I think to myself, self, ( I am still stunned at this point ) self, after the tourney, which went quick for me, go ahead, buy another couple of boosters it can only get better... 2 more tank droids for my huges!!! Now at this point is where I know I am a massicist because, I see myself in the 3rd person at the register buying 2 more. Open and then...2 Tie Crawler and 2 Chewie!!!!

Now, I am supposed to be happy because I also got Revan and Hansickle which means 4 VR out of 6 tries, but with 4 tank droids and 2 tie crawler for the huge I can only vomit.


--O.K. so charma was a little kinder too me on Sunday as I played in a booster tourney with 1 booster 100 point and opened Maris and Luke SP 2 very rare in 1 box is kinda nice.

I think I'm buying singles on eBay. Doubt I'll play in a release tournament. The only reason I would buy a booster would be for the insert, and I'll just ask for one in a trade sometime.

Yeah I pulled a Tank Droid too. It sucks because the only place that sells them around here is a place that keeps them behind the counter so no cherrypicking Rancors for me. :(

First booster, Wedge and Knobby Spider. Gah.

Second booster, TIE Crawler and Vader Unleashed. OK.

I really need to stop buying loose boosters and wait for my cases to arrive. Bad new, it's going to be mid-late December. Thank you Amazon UK...

Couldn't wait for my release tournament so I bought a single booster. Usually I try to feel them out and decide which is best, and of course, I'm ALWAYS wrong. So I took the booster that would have been my last choice.

Pull out a troop cart. Bah.

Next figure: Darth Revan. Cool.

So my strategy worked, but I know karma says I'm going to get nada in the release today. It's SWM karma. It's a real thing. Like when you hit Bane with the "Big D" on the second shot of the game and then the next round someone does it to your Boba on the second shot of the game. SWM karma. Fear it.

My Universe pulls were horrible. Three cases with no R or VR Huges.

FU has been good to me though.
