As for the price, you're basically paying $4 for the box, 6 VERY nice and sturdy thick plastic dividers (thicker than credit cards!) with great RtR Lands art, some stickers, and the alternate-art foil Dreg Mangler. I think this is a really good deal, especially if you need a box for your collection anyway. I've also heard that game and comic book stores are only getting limited supplies of these, so these Holiday Gift Boxes may become rare soon in the future - all the more reason for getting one while they're around at base (or close to) price.
The 4 RtR booster packs that come in the box are basically at MSRP price of $4 each. As with any booster packs, they're random. You'll get good pulls some times, and you'll get less-than-desirable pulls most of the time. I happened to be lucky with the packs in my Holiday Gift Box: Rakdos Lord of Riots, Chromatic Lantern, Blood Crypt, and a foil Mizzium Mortars. The current going prices for these 4 in total already exceed what I paid for the Holiday Gift Box! (The other rare was Volatile Rig, boo...)
It holds 600 cards per column/aisle. I put the cards in piles of 100 and then inserted them until I couldn't fit anymore. The cards are in there full but not stuffed to where I'd damage them getting them out (for example, if they're in there so tight that I have to use my fingernail to get some traction and pull them out then the edges sometimes get chafed and turn white).
For what you get and the durability and art, I think it's worth it. I'm just telling people because this seems to be in high demand, short supply and you might want to take into consideration how many you order based on 1,800 cards per box, not 2,000.
In addition, it is simply a beautiful box. Some might view it solely as a collector's item, but I use mine regularly. When I first got it, there were many "oohs" and "ahhs" from other players, who were not aware of its release. The main box uses a sturdy cardboard/paperboard, with a glossy finish. It's not going to stand up to the abuses of a toddler, but, with care, it should last me many years. I especially like the fact that the box lid lifts off--there's no hinge edge that will crack or distort over time.
The dividers in the box are not only great-looking, but they are also designed for the long-term, made out of sturdy plastic. The attached label sheet provides many options for use in conjunction with those dividers, but I also found the rest of them useful for tagging my many other storage boxes.
Looking at the price (MSRP $19.99 at the time of release), you are getting four booster packs (MSRP $3.99 each, or $15.96) plus the box, dividers, labels, and the alternate-art Dreg Mangler card, all for the cost of five boosters. So, basically, you get the box and all the bonus items for slightly less than the cost of an additional pack--it's an exceptional value!Read more ›
Firstly, the contents. As other reviews stated, the set contains 4 RtR booster packs(random contents) as well as the stickers, dividers, and the box. In my opinion the stickers aren't that useful. It has stickers for the RtR guilds, and it contains stickers for the MTG sets going back quite a ways. These could be used just as stickers, or to put on the plastic dividers to distinguish what sets you have organized.
As for the box, it is about the size of three fat pack boxes connected together. It seems like it is made of the same material, very sturdy. My personal opinion is that the box is too wide to be practical, because unlike fat pack boxes, you cannot practically stack it vertically, unless you put it on it's side.
One thing I should point out. The cards that came with the set, the ones not from the booster packs, seem to be made of a different material than regular cards are. they seem to be more shiny and they almost feel like they are less sturdy card stock. If you compare a card from the set to a card from say a booster pack, with exactly the same artwork, the one from the set almost looks like it is lighter in color or like it has a glossy dust on it that doesn't come off. This may not be an issue, especially since the different cards are only commons, uncommons, and lands, however for a collector it might be a point of interest.
Everything else about the set seems normal and of a very good quality. Hope this helps!!
