    42 packs deep now, still not even averaging 1 SV per 3 packs currently. This is the worst set of all time to me at this point. Product is hard to find, expensive even if you do get it at MSRP, the packs are coming from all different sources so dupe potential is high (compared to a booster box in a normal set), and the pull rates are just the same old crap as usual even though the subset is almost 100 cards. And let's not even touch the black lizard hype explosion.

    Does that mean you're not going to open any more of Hidden Fates or are you In Too Deep now?

    I still have 2 ETBs, both Pokeball Collections and the Super Premium Collection pre-ordered. Soon to be drowning in my own salt.

    Did you touch a cursed idol or something?? I'm still getting around 50 percent. At least the quality of those pulls is pretty good.

    Yeah it's really frustrating seeing everyone else online say it's been about 1-in-2 for them. I'm not even at 1-in-3 odds. lol

    It actually started sinking in today how this might be a good time to bail on collecting Pokemon cards anymore. Unless I get super lucky and get the Zard in the product I pre-ordered, this is going to be the first main set in 20 years I won't be able to finish, because I'm not spending $500+ on a single card. And who knows what terror Gen 8 will bring...

    I don't think that price point is sustainable. It'll come down; it just might take a long time.

    I see that as most of the price of a UCS Lego Millennium Falcon or the new UCS Lego Star Destroyer, so if I'm dropping $500 on a toy, I'm goin' all in on either of those first!
