Yeah I have an issue LOL, I did save up for both Chrome series, was good to know they were coming. I did not buy much 2014 S1 + Bukimi and basically skipped the whole ANS, FB and BNS. I got back into GPK at the end of BNS2 and just started character collecting the Drippy Dan Leaky Lou ones. When they mentioned Chrome OS1 I was excited not having any USA OS sets at all, I only have the 23a/23b + 45a ones. Born and raised in Holland I have the UK sets complete that's it, I do have a lot from Chrome OS1 + 2 and Mini but most of it is available for sell and trade, my collection is very small and focused
My name is Bill W. is a movie about an alchoholic in AA. Your post where you say "Hi my name is Bok, and I have a problem" reminds me of.the AA speech. Loland B Dallas is a wrestler. I mention because you got that super, which might I say is the reasin I buy packs like a fiend.

Congrats on the super, plate, auto and the full prism set you must have built by now! Lol now time to start your jenny jelly drainbow! (You're almost done, having pulled the super, you pretty much have to at this point...). Haha good job!
and just checked the pack odds, also a extra Autograph (1:305) and a Plate (1:1160)
(just counted everything and I opened 415 single packs, Atomic packs not included)
I should really stop
Hi, my name is Bok and I'm a GPK addict.
So I had a good busy 1.5 week with work and got paid so when I passed 3 Targets on my way home I got tempted and lost my battle to stop thinking if there would be any new batches of Atomic Value Packs. I walked in and checked the section at the register and all looked raided (like last time I was there), checked the new card spot in the toys section and saw a lot of yellow from a distance (this is where I should have turned around). Way more VP's than I've ever seen at one location, amount of VP's in order of each Target on my way home 16, 12, 12.
What I pulled: 16 lot - 4 Prisms, C card (51c), Auto (42b) 12 lot - 1 Prism, C card (60c) 12 lot - 1 Prism, C card (48c)
Looks like the pull odds for me got even better, worked out well I did not stay strong and kept my word
Good thing I'm selling off some GPK here and there to get some $ back
Again I got weak seeing those shiny packs last evening after 8.5 work hours All Targets in my (close) area are out of Chrome 2 for at least 2 weeks now, no VP or feed restock at all, not even a searched feed just the left over Blaster Boxes. On my way home from a client with a $100 cash tip in my pocket I pass 2 Targets further away (45minutes/1hour) from me that I never go to. So already being there that far out I decided to see if they might still have any, first Target has 8 VP's so I buy them, next (Super) Target has 20! I never seen a Target with that many packs at one place, also they did not fit the pegs and were placed standing upright in a Pokemon or that Yogu XY something box. Feed was rampaged just had to see and check. Weird thing they also had 2006 and 2008 Sports Hobby Boxes out, never seen that, looks like Excel is dumping old stock.
My weakness paid off opening packs till 1am, 20 packs contained a Auto and Plate, 8 packs contained a ....
I should really really really stop now .. for real .. STOP BUYING CHROME 2
I feel series 3 will do a lot better than 2nd series due to the fact that quite a few of us here started on 3rd series and that's what we remember most. I didn't have an allowance growing up but whatever my parents would give me to have fun with going down to the local convince store or ice cream man where I was able to get them at the time. So I wasn't able to go to card shops to far away and catch up with 1st/2nd series. My Mom did take me one time but she thought it was too expensive to pay $30 a set for 1st or 2nd. I wish I had a serious allowance back then I would of took advantage big time.
I put 2 boxes in the basket and when I calculated shipping it was only $30, We could ask if they would mark as a gift? get it delivered to one of us and then forward the other persons box onto them?
I think there may be some other UK users that may want to get on board.
Failing that I've got a gut in US that helps me out massively on importing GPK stuff I could ask him as he has purchased bits from the US Ebay then posted them as a gift to me so I pay no omport duties.
