Hey guys, the other day I got a single AW booster and pulled a V Captain America. I've been given all kinds of ridiculous offers for him, in the order of 2-3 uniques. Is he really all that uncommon, is he really all that good, and do any of y'all have one?
You are more likely to pull a Unique out of an AW booster, than you are a high level rare Vets (Ultron, Captain America, Titanium Man, Iron Man, Wendigo, Executioner).
That being said, I got mine early on.
Actually, it's Ultron, Cap, T-Man, Iron Man, War Machine, Crimson Dynamo, Executioner and Dazzler. The veterans of these rare characters are at least twice as rare as the uniques.
I personally would hold onto the Cap unless you are offered uniques you really want (but keep in mind the uniques from Armor Wars aren't that uncommon -- I've pulled 5 Sentry's already and still no Vet Ultron, T-Man, CD, Executioner or Dazzler. (I actually did pull a Cap).
I bought a brick + 5 boosters, and got REV Cap and REV Iron Man. I traded the V Cap off though (I don't really like the new stats much, nor the point cost).
I only got 2 uniques out of 17 boosters though. Looks like my ratio was the reverse of everyone elses.
I think I've pulled an equal number of the "rare" vets as I have uniques. I've had multiples of Cap, Iron man, and Dazzler, and at least one Crimson Dynamo and Ultron. This is out of two bricks and change (my first sealed game gave me vet Cap and vet Dazzler). No veteran War Machine yet.
First day Armor Wars was out, I was in my local comic shop busting open my brick and I pulled RE Captain America, but no Veteran. I did, however, pull a Rookie Executioner.
Now, I know you're all wondering what that has to do with anything at all. Well, it just happens that the guy who runs the store is a huge fan of Skurge. The Executioner is his favorite character. He went on and on about how he thinks he's such a cool, tragic figure guarding this bridge and in love with a woman who'll never love him back and ... well, quite frankly, I didn't care at all about the Executioner.
So, he was like, "What can I give you for him?"
I said that I didn't really care all that much about the figure, so he could just have him. I didn't want him. I wasn't ever going to use him. So, he was more than welcome to just take him.
He said, "No, I've got to give you something for him. Here ..." and then he tossed me a Veteran Captain America.
I was like, "Seriously? This isn't an even trade ... is there anything else I've got that you want me to throw in?"
He said, "Nope. You collect figures you like. I collect figures I like. I like Skurge. You like Cap. You'll never play with Skurge. I'll never play with Cap. I get what I want, you get what you want. Way I see it, that's a fair trade."
So, that's how I got my V Captain America.
(I got my V Iron Man last Saturday night at Hasting's while my wife and I were renting a video. I saw a booster that just seemed to be calling out my name. So I picked it up. She shook her head, and I begged -- as all husbands do, but few admit -- and told her that I had a good feeling about it, and eventually she relented and let me get it. We got to the car and cracked it open and there was V Iron Man. Booya.)

JacinB is right.

I have probably opened the equivalent of a case and a brick (1.25 cases), so roughly 60 boosters. However, all of this did not come from one single case. I have only opened two bricks and the rest have been loose packs from about 3-4 different locations. I've just gotten lucky with the Sentry (I think the only unique I haven't opened, but managed to trade for, was Crystal). Maybe my luck of pulling rare veterans has been low (I think I've only actually pulled 4 from all this) but it shouldn't be this low. I am curious as to how many rare veterans are being pulled on average per full case.
