I just started to get into Star Wars and Pirates pocket models due to the fact Wizkids is gone and some of the sets are heavily discounted. I'm not really a collector, my son and I like to build the models and play with our own house rules.

So Target is selling the Star Wars Force unleashed tins for $8.99 and as I'm buying all I see and I happen to pick up a couple of the Savage Shores boxes, not on sale for $14.99.

Out of one of them I get a packet that says as follows.

"CONGRATULATIONS! You just dug up the most sought-after treasure chest in the Pirates of the Cursed Seas (TM) Savage Shores PocketModel(TM) game. It contains every super-rare game piece in the set! Your friend are going to be so jealous."

So did I actually find something that's rare or is just marketing?

Thanks,
Daniel

If they all have a black mark in the corner then they are indeed super-rare. Apparently Pirates were marketed with all super-rares in a single pack like this.

They averaged one super rare back per box of boosters, so 1 in 36.

I bought a box at Target also, and got the same thing. I think that WizKids may have printed the rare packs first, and as they went under, shipped all that they had.

Just a guess, but it would fit. Anyway, the ships are cool!

I just picked up one of these from Target as well, not the super rare one, but the Savage Shores box. Does anyone know which displayed ship corresponds to which pieces of the 13 mast super ships you get with these boxes? Apparently there are 6 different "Displayed" ships that come with 1 of 6 different pieces to build 2 big 13 mast ships. I'm just wondering if someone figured out which pieces come with which displayed ship so I can build the one I have without buying 5 more of these boxes.

Here's the full match-up of the six cards:

SS45 Cannibal King - Celtic Fury 1/3
SS46 Speedy Return - Celtic Fury 2/3
SS47 Libellule - Celtic Fury 3/3

SS48 Soul Crusher - Shui Xian 1/3
SS49 Valeroso - Shui Xian 2/3
SS50 HMS Mirage - Shui Xian 3/3
