I second this. I buy blind boosters for everything, all the time. I have a limited amount of income to spend on a hobby like this (usually to the tune of $20-$40 a month) and I like to max out my gains vs. the amount of money I spend. I buy from my LGS all the time, and he was laughing at me earlier today when I was shaking all of his avengers boosters looking for a heavy one.
I third this with a vengeance.
Even though I occasionally buy singles (Less now b/c I hate ordering online and I don't live near a store that sells singles at their physical location anymore), there is NO better feeling than opening a pack you bought for $11 and pulling a figure worth $80.
Or, like what happened to me last night, a pack for $3 and pulling a figure worth $45. Thanks, Chase Odin!

I wish these things came out anywhere else besides the States. I want Destroyer [sorta... kinda] but after buying more than I planned of the Avengers set, I'm certainly not gonna gamble for it anymore. Nor do I want it that badly to pay someone else to cherry pick it [read: buy via eBay], so, really... the only way WK is gonna get that last, sweaty 4 bucks outta my hand is to bring these damn things north of the border, so I can fondle the pouches 'till I find one.
