If I didn't already have them all I would buy it. Core set and Frontier are about $150. All the rest is related to Targa near enough. Roughly you're paying $150 for $250 worth of product.

Edit: Just noticed the Guardian is included, so around $280

Depends on how much you already have. It’s a good discount over retail price.

The extra set of minis is probably not worth considering unles you’re really into the hobby aspect.

I’m surprised it doesn’t also include the custodians of Targa. If you get it, you’ll want those as well.

It's worth noting that Frontier Town is Out Of Stock for quite a few online stockist, so this is a good way to get it relatively cheaply. I'd think it was a good deal for $150, but do consider if you're getting it outside of America you'll be hammered by shipping and customs (the Frogs charge full shipping on products bought from their store).

To France, it costs $88 shipping. Still a gain, but only about 50 to 60 dollars.

No kidding on the shipping. It's $47. I feel like it's not worth it including the shipping. Thoughts? Also, I am based in US

You can grab the core set below $70 (check gamenerdz).
You can get much better ennemy packs than this set for a good price as well online (master of the void, scafford gang, etc ...). And free shipping ...
Blue dice & red miniatures are useless.
Card supplements may be added later if you're really into this game.
IMO, no rush to get Frontier Town, better to add ennemy variety first.

You will always find deals below FFP MSRP and free shipping.
