If you are going to be picky why would you order one to begin with? (I admittedly don't get the mystery box thing at all.)

I get the mystery box idea....you get discs that you might not have tried before. I was in a Disc Swap and got a disc I would never have considered buying or trying....it's in my bag now.

But it does seem like a large number of people are hoping for, and after, the rare disc that they can immediately sell to pay off the mystery box. Then they get disappointed when there isn't that valuable disc in the box. Look at the box that came out with the original Tilt....sold out quickly and just as quickly the Tilts were online for sale....and some of the posts said - I will ship it as soon as it arrives.

In a similar line, I heard from the TD of ltheLas Vegas Challenge that he had a huge number of volunteers because he was giving them a Nate Sexton Firebird. Then he made the mistake of giving the disc when they checked in the first day..bunch of volunteers got their disc and left to never show up again....and the discs were up online immediately.

Generally, the mystery boxes will include one special disc that isn’t a mystery (Tilt, Razor Claw 1, etc.) and the rest is always a crap shoot.

I used to buy the boxes that came out around the holidays usually knowing I wanted the known disc. The rest I would typically give away as Christmas gifts to my disc golf buddies unless there was something really cool or that I actually bagged.

I skipped ordering the DM box this year because I didn’t want the MD1 and I feared the rest of the box would be a bunch of the active line stuff that nobody throws.

While there weren't 3 figure discs in every box I thought this years boxes seemed to do a better job of including a little something for everyone. Amongst my friend group and the boxes I saw online seemed like everyone got at least 2-3 molds from the originals line, 2-3 discs from the evolution line and 2-3 discs from the active line.

Just amongst the guys I play league with there were DD3/DDX/p3/p3x/md4/cd2/p2 and of course md1's so that made for some fun trading around.
The evolution/active lines seemed to be the same in every box save for tactic vs method but there was still a pretty big variety of color/stamps as well. The genius has actually been pretty fun to throw in the "faster paradox" slot and the rockstar was significantly more stable than it's numbers suggest so that's been interesting also.

So I guess if you ignore the color/schemes realistically everyone got 6 of the same discs as everyone else, and then 3 discs were up in the air what you got. I'm not sure if that's considered good or bad.

On the topic of Signature Releases, what ever happened to this:

“Not long following the C-Line MD3, we have a real treat lined up for you: The Eagle McMahon Iron Samurai 3, which will be a Color Glow C-Line MD3. Release is expected in the heart of glow season, some time this November-December.”

Should we expect this to drop on Christmas 🤔😏?

They dropped the Proto CB DD3 in the December Black Mystery box I think

Are you thinking there will be another before the end of the year? They’ve crammed so much into the end of this year I’d be surprised if they have one more big drop planned in the next two weeks.

Discmania, may I have a brief word with the stamp-color-disc-color coordinator?

off topic from disc related questions, but could you or somebody at Discmania please tell Simon to stop filming while driving?

I ordered my first DM mystery box this year. I think there are a few attractors to be honest. First, there is always the chance of something unexpected (even if it is relatively low) which adds to the excitement. Second, at the 100$ cost all I need to financially justify it is by finding 3 discs to throw or add into the bag. With 8 mystery discs and the MD1 this really just means 2 discs needed to make up for the cost of the box and everything else is extra.
