    Anyone bought any Reflections III boxes or boosters yet? If so, what do you think?

    I went to a pre-release tournament last week end and I've got to say that I'm loving R3. The sealed deck wasn't the best place to try it out, but it's still pretty cool. The only problems with the set is that there are too many defensive shield cards and that the packs still have so much wb premier, Dagobah, CC, Special Ed., and JP filler rather than cards from every set as Decipher has been saying since R1. Oh, and did we really need foil versions of all (most) of the premium cards from R2? C'est la vie. Other than that the foil choices are pretty sweet (I love the idea of foil preview cards) not to mention the character premium cards. All in all R3 is a pretty cool set.

    I have found this delicious card combo with Reflections 3:

    Use the Dark Side saber combat Objective, and have Conduct Your Search be one of your starting Effects. Use its text to pull Closed Door, and use it as your combat card. This will work very well if you pack multiple Closed Doors. :D

    I bought one box and I got some decent foils and premium. Still missing 24 but I hope to get them by trading away foils.

    Are the 14 filler cards ALL from Premiere through Special Edition, or just most of them? Anyone seen a single filler from Endor, Death Star II, Tatooine, Coruscant, or any premium product?

    I haven't read anything yet that says Endor or Death Star II cards have been used as filler.

    By the way, I finally got around to buying 3 Ref iii packs at lunch today. They suck.

    Pack 1 - Premiums: 2 Defensive Shields and a Blockade Flagship site. Yuck. Foil: Nute Gunray. Okay. Random cards: Rancor.

    Pack 2 - Premiums: Obi-Wan's Lightsaber (good!) and two Defensive Shields (yuck). Foil: Palace Raider. Ehhh. Random cards: nothing.

    Pack 3 - Premiums: Sio Bibble, a Defensive Shield and an effect. Yuck. Foil: The Phantom Menace (Coruscant effect - AI version). Looks cool, otherwise Ehhh. Random cards: nothing.

    All that for $15. Woo-hoo.

    I am NOT excited about Ref III....

    I am hopefully hopefully hopefully hopefully hopefully hopefully hopefully hopefully hopefully hopefully hopefully hopefully going to be getting my box this afternooon. Please collectrively cross your fingers for me.

    BTW, I realise that I have, ashamedly, caused my fellow plyer's hopes to be inflated. I publically apolgise for my grievous error.

    This is what dumbo here did:

    You may or may not remember that I quoted an article that promised casrds from ALL previous products. This was false, misleading and wrong. The article did not say the word ALL, it merely said that tyhere would be cards from previous expansions.

    I'm sorry.

    On the other hand, what did people get in their random cards? I read somewhere that someone got D*II cards in every pack, but can this info be trusted?

    I got mostly WB Premiere, Cloud City, Jabba's Palace and Special Edition, with a little Hoth thrown in here and there. Nothing else.

    There are a few different claims about the place, but one claim was 5 WB premier per pack. Can any verify this rumor?

    It certainly seemed that way. And the WB Premiere was always in the same place in each pack.

    Okay, I ran/played in a Ref III booster draft this weekend, and had much better luck with my pulls ... :)

    Leia Rebel Princess
    Obi-Wan Kenobi, Jedi Knight
    Sio Bibble (what is it with this guy? he's everywhere!)
    every card to run the ls objective except generator core ... grr!
    starting effect
    foil wedge jap
    foil luke jap
    foil obi's stick jap (that came in real handy during the tourney, let me tell you!)

    Plus, I bought a few packs after the tourney, and got r3 Qui-Gon, his stick, and Stormtrooper Garrison.

    So R3 is leaving a little better taste in my mouth now! :)

    By the way, LS had their way with DS. I don't know if it was just the player matchups or the cards drafted, but out of 20 games, I think we only had 5 or 6 DS wins! Leia Rebel Princess rocks in booster draft, by the way.

    This was mentioned on the list serve. Can anyone verify/ deny:

    5 cards wb Premiere
    3 Premium Cards
    1 Foil
    1 Dagobah
    3 Cloud City
    3 Jabba's Palace
    2 Special Edition

    Someones else's box had ALL the packs like this:
    5 WB Premiere
    3 JP
    1 Foil
    3 CC
    3 Premium
    1 BB Hoth
    2 SE
    They also mentioned that if they got a WB PRem rare, they also got a JP rare. As wello, their two SE cards had the same rarity.
    Interesting...

    Those ratios sound about right for my box. I think my packs were split half and half for those two ratios, because I know I got very little Hoth.

    I've heard some people on the listserv say they got a few Death Star II cards in their boxes. I suspect that 13 of the 14 random cards are fixed -- 5 wb pre, 3 CC, 3 JP, 2 SE -- and the last one may actually be from any set, up to Death Star II at least. That's why some are saying they got Dagobah cards, some are saying Hoth, and a few are saying DSII.

    Finally got my box, +2 loose packs (no will power...)

    Did pretty well, I didn't get any duplicate foils, and got about 19 duplicate premiums. I managed to trade 10 of those for 7 +3 dupes from a friend (he also had no duplicate foils).

    The biggest score was the UR Foil was Darth Maul, Young Apprentice AI from coruscant, which was great since i never got the original one. I ended up with all the cards needed to do the objectives except for Inner Strength and Deep Hatred, but I managed to get those from a friend (and nabbed an extra inner strength in one of those 3 duplicates I took from him to even the trade)

    I'm only missing 16 premiums:

    Lightside:

    A Close Race
    A Remote Planet
    Another Pathetic Lifeform
    Armament Dismantled
    Darth Maul's Demise
    Ewok Celebration
    Fall of a Jedi
    Lando's Not A System, He's A Man
    Ounee Ta

    Darkside:

    Allegations of Corruption
    Boba Fett, Bounty Hunter
    Colo Claw Fish
    Come Here You Big Coward
    Conduct Your Search
    Force Push
    There Is No Try


    Premium Duplicates:

    Lightside-

    Chewie, Enraged
    Colo Claw Fish
    Horace Vancil
    Inner Strength
    Lando Calrissian, Scoundrel
    Obi-wan's Lightsaber
    Strike Blocked

    Darkside-

    Leave Them To Me
    Maul's Double-Bladed Lightsaber (probably will be holding onto this though, for my lightsaber combat deck)
    Prepare For A Surface Attack
    Stormtrooper Garrison
    Weapon of a Sith.


    Of the foils I got, I, again, recieved no duplicates and did get one Theed Palace preview foil- "After Her!"

    These are the foils I got (easier to list than the ones I'm mssing[face_batting] )

    lightside-

    Boonta Eve Podrace
    Coruscant: Jedi Council Chamber
    End of a Reign
    Harvest
    Jar Jar Binks
    Luke Skywalker, Japanese
    Obi-Wan Kenobi AI
    Ibi-Wan's Lightsaber, japanese
    Palace Raider
    Pulsar Skate
    Queen's Royal Starship
    Qui-Gon Jinn's Lightsaber
    Radiant VII
    Rebel Leadership
    Seeking An Audience
    Supreme Chancellor Valorum
    Vote Now!
    Wedge Antilles, japanese

    Darkside-

    After Her!
    Arica
    Aurra Sing AI
    Boonta Eve Podrace
    Darth Maul, Young Apprentice AI
    Dioxis
    Dr Evazan & Ponda Baba
    Guri
    Imperial Artillery
    Imperial Command
    Mercenary Pilot
    P-60
    Trample, japanese
    Watto AI

    I also found the filler-cards were much better asorted than previous reflections sets, got quite alot of Dagobah filler, alongside premiere, SE and JP. Still not as much ANH as I would like though. I didn't notice any DS2 or Endor cards in the filler.

    Overall, much better expierence than Coruscant (even though i lucked out with that overall). I might buy another box down the road to get some more duplicates of the premiums and some of the foils, but I've very glad I was able to get most of the non-foil set in one box.
