Mighty Meeples – Weeks 9 and 10
March 30, 2017

A quick recap. As of our last posting, I was at 27 out of 30 Mighty Meeples. My luck continued during week 9.

My first pack of the night brought me the elusive Black Manta. Although a common, it had taken me this long to pull one. You might call this a Legion of Doom pack.

And the 2nd pack did not disappoint either. The Penguin, the last uncommon joined my ranks. This pack is certainly Batman themed.

When I went back, for week 10, there were only 3 packs left. I wondered. Could the distribution be such that if you bought a sealed box you got at least 1 of all 30? I asked one of the store owners if I was the only one buying these. He said, “Yes, I think you are.” But at 3$ a pack, and wanting to buy a 13$ Heroclix booster, I could only get 2 for my 20$ (with 1$ left over). He was willing to let me have the last pack for 1$ or pay the rest of it the following week. I don’t remember.

As we were in the middle of the sale, I opened the first pack and there was Hawkman.  That makes 30! (He let me give back the other 2 packs and I spent the 4$ on Dice Masters instead.)

Erik spent 6 years working for Hasbro in Pawtucket, RI before leaving for a job that paid more (Why else would a collector leave the company that was making Star Wars, Transformers, and while I was there Batman). I used to post all over the net. These days I tend to hang my hat at AFI.
