74% - The Star Wars Rebels Sticker Collection...
Oh, now we've hit the wall. This is where the geeks are separated from the pretenders and progress starts to slow. Fifteen packs opened tonight, and out of 75 stickers, only 14 make it into the album. And 7 (seven) of those were nil-packs, consisting entirely of duplicates. On the plus side*1, that small number has seen pages 25 and 29 completed, as well as poster-page 4.
The projected average has pretty much caught back up with us and stands at 72%, while the actual album limps up to 74%. Disheartening certainly, but only to be expected (indeed, predicted). The duplicate-pile now stands at 104 stickers, which is exactly half an album's worth. And I need another 30 stickers before I can grab the sticky-backed lifeline that is the top-up order.
The game continues...
Duplicates so far: 1,2,3(x3), 7,11,12,15,16,19(x2), 20,22(x2), 26,27(x2), 28,30(x2), 31,32,33,35,36(x2), 43(x2), 44(x2), 48(x2), 51,52,53(x2), 57,58,62,63,64,67,68,71,76(x3), 80,81,83(x3), 87(x3), 88,90(x2), 91,92,94,95,97,98,104,105,109(x2), 110,111,120(x2), 122,123(x3), 134,137,140,142,143(x2), 146,147,152,160,162,164(x2), 165(x2), 169(x2), 172,185,186(x2), 189,190,192,197,P2,P4.
[If you're collecting these too and you're after any of the stickers appearing in the duplicates-list, give me a shout either in the comments-box or the WoB Facebook page.
Yes, of course I'm serious.]

*1 Let me get something positive out of this; a 19% return on £7.50's worth of stickers has put a right bloody damper on my evening.
