Clone Breaks: 2017-18 UDH Series 1 (Part 3)



Rex's forces were decimated (again). He's the last man standing (again). He's in another do or die situation with incredible odds against him (again).


He's held out admirably but was getting pushed even further and further into the factory.


More trouble came when the First Order decided to crash the party.


Surrounded, Rex was ready for a shootout to the end.



But then the deus ex machina showed up in the form of Major Glory and Living Bullet. Both there to plug some movie or something.


They also brought along two Chytils. Torrens he is not, but he gets the job done. The Chytils and the two justice friends handled the first order and droids.


With the path out of the factory clear, it was up to Rex to deal with the heavy duty cannons that kept the rescue ships away.


Rex managed to take control of one of the cannons but then the computer on the cannon revealed that the planet was ordered to be destroyed from a giant moon far away.

Rex then changed the rescue plan to just have the frigate pick him and the others up without landing.


Thinking quickly, Rex destroyed as many of the cannons as he could and then took a jetpack that was just lying around. Then flew to the rendezvous spot along with the two heroes.


However, their troubles continued in the sky as droids chased them into the clouds.


Luckily the frigate managed to dispose of them and pick up our heroes before quickly leaving for hyperspace. Also the planet blew up :P.


Despite the narrow rescue, our heroes had learned that they were going up against an even bigger threat than they had imagined. Only thing going through Rex's head was when he was going to have to confront it.

And that wraps up the clone breaks posts for the hockey box. Thanks for sticking around lol. It's funny how even at the ripe old age of (early/mid-20's), my storylines when playing with toys are just as incoherent as they were when I was seven.

After a lengthly inner debate, I decided that I am going to go for building the 2017-18 Upper Deck Hockey Series 1 set.

As far as the main base set goes I need the following:
11, 30, 45, 48, 58, 60, 68, 88, 103, 112, 120, 147, 154, 158, 166

I'm not too focused on the Young Guns right now (thanks a lot Hischier :P) but I might as well list them for convenience:
201, 202, 203, 204, 205, 206, 207, 209, 210, 211, 212, 213, 214, 215, 216, 217, 218, 220, 221, 222, 223, 224, 225, 227, 228, 229, 230, 231, 233, 234, 235, 236, 237, 238, 239, 240, 241, 242, 243, 244, 245, 246, 249, 250


I have a feeling that this set is going to finally teach me how nauseatingly painful short prints are to set collectors. Like I said, Hischier is going to be a huge pain in the butt, especially if he reaches Auston Matthews or (God-forbid) Sidney Crosby levels. Ugh. A rookie card AND a short print, this should be interesting. Thank goodness I pulled a Boeser.

Also the 10 Chytil YG's goal is still on. Hoo-raw :P.

As always thanks for stopping by and take care :).

  2. I can send you about half of your base needs. Just need your shipping info.
