In order to get all the MOTM cards and Hatrick Hero cards you would have to buy approx 100 packets meaning you would have roughly 800 cards you dont require. Surely 40 motm cards for the extra series is excessive.

You'd have to buy 100 packs to get 50 MOTM/Hat-trick hero cards. You'd probably need 200 packs to get nearly all 50 different ones. I could do the arithmetic given time and a spreadsheet.

I sometimes wonder if Topps/Panini do model the distribution ratios. An example was the team badges for Panini World Cup 2014 which were much too difficult to obtain.

IMO, they should have just included 1 MOTM for each team

Of course they do model the distribution ratios, that's why they are so bad. More money made that way.

I opened 3 booster boxes each with 50 packs and each had 20 MOTM and 5 HH's which is exactly in line with the ratios of 1:2 packs

I also opened 5 tins and 7 multi-packs and managed to get EVERY card in the collection

I still had a few tins/ multi-packs left over (7 and 1) and that lot cost me £180 from Click

So, a cost of £180 isn't, in my opinion that bad to complete the set....I have more than enough cards and tins/ packs to sell to probably nearly get all of the money back that I have spent (if I was so inclined) but that seems like too much hard work for me!

We need to be a little bit realistic about the collection and Topps as a business....if everyone only needed to spend £50 to complete the collection they would not make enough money would they?

And I am pretty sure that their target market is kids so they assume that they would trade cards that they need rather than just buying pack after pack until you get what you need

Got a booster box of 50, opened 20 packs so far but only pulled 1 HH which was Kane.

Completed the 28 new signing sub-set and got 7 different MOM which is decent.

I think 40 MOM is too much, they can bring that down to 20 easily.

I reckon I usually spend around £65 on the regular set to complete it, so I can have one of the different LEs and then I probably use the swap shop twice.
