Well, that's a wrap. I can now definitively say after opening a box for myself, that I will not be buying another hobby box of this product. I will say it was a lot more fun to bust than the last hobby box I ripped. I would like to finish the base set and accumulate some parallels, but that's about it. I'm hoping I can use my minis to make a big dent towards accomplishing that, but if not I will be going retail to help finish off the base set. At $2 a pack, you get the same number of full size cards as hobby (3), just one less mini, which is fine with me!
