Frequency Distribution of 25th Joe Figures


Recommended Posts

This is my estimate of how often each figure would appear in a sample set of cases. It is based on all known revisions of case assortments as listed on BBTS, EntEarth, and a couple other places.


As listed in my notes, this would be based on having an even # of cases for each wave. Within each wave, all known revisions of said wave would have an equal weighting. The sample size is 2 cases per wave, for 12 cases total. The 5-packs and comic 2-packs are added in at 1 of each case to give a rough comparison, but not as useful as the intra-singles distribution.


Hope you guys find it useful.


	 # Freq Distribution of Figures by mold (waves 1-6), subdivided by packaging/colors

 # Assumptions:
 # balanced # of singles cases for each wave:
 #   in an avg of 2 cases per singles wave for 6 waves
 #   (calculated from 60 cases -- 10 per wave, evenly distributed over known
 #   'revisions' -- and divided by 5 for the avg frequency.)

 # In an average of 12 singles cases total, and
 # 1 case of each wave for:
 #   3  battle packs
 #   3  comics 2-packs

 # you would find:

 # Notes:
 # - Subsequent waves tend to repack earlier characters so later wave characters
 #   (Torpedo, Rock and Roll, etc) numbers will be expectedly lower.
 # - If there are more cases of one revision during a wave, these will be slightly off.
 # - Frequency distribution for exclusives, like Doc, don't have case metrics so
 #   aren't included.
 # - The comparisons between 5-packs and 2-packs against singles aren't as
 #   useful as within each other but they are included to give a rough idea.
