Sceptile Ex Tin

Sceptile Ex Tin

Sceptile Ex Tin I had purchased this tin several weeks ago but have been unable to make the time to write this up until now, this trio of tins is too great to leave behind! You can see the Blaziken Ex Tin article here and hopefully will be seeing the Swampert Ex Tin article very shortly. I have been keeping these tin write-ups short and sweet, because I know what everyone really wants to see is the pulls. Sceptile Ex Tin Promo Card Pokemon Ex promo cards from tins are very hit or miss in terms of usability. We have gotten several …

Ancient Origins Booster Box Opening

aofeatured

Ancient Origins Booster Box Opening Of course I picked one of these up! I love getting booster boxes because of their consistency and the ability to really grab almost all of or all of the commons, uncommons and rare cards (and duplicates) for collections and deck building. The new set Ancient origins was no exception boasting some really cool cards, new mechanics and very powerful items and stadiums. As usual I have documented all my openings through pictures which are in a nice gallery below. Like the Flashfire opening, this Ancient Origins booster box opening will not have discussion of …

Blaziken Ex Tin

Blaziken Ex Tin Featured

Blaziken Ex Tin I love collecting tins for a multitude of reasons. You get 4 mixed booster packs which is always fun, you get a sweet easy to obtain Ex card and the tins themselves are great! I have 20 or so tins currently that I have slowly been making into an awesome display wall! The Blaziken Ex tin is one that I have wanted to pick up for a few weeks and when I saw all three at my local store I jumped on the chance to grab them. Blaziken Ex Tin Promo Card The Blaziken Ex you get …

Pikachu Make Believe Promo Box

featured

Pikachu Make Believe Promo Box Rarely do I purchase Japanese cards specifically as I prefer English cards for a few reasons (including that I can actually read them). I decided to change that up after seeing this awesome Pikachu collection that was being released as a promotion for a Pokemon Center store opening. I cared most about the two Pikachu cards but the collection as a whole was well put together and worth the money!     The box, pictured on the right, is relatively well constructed and really fits with the Magikarp and Gyarados Pikachu theme. I always enjoy …

Complete Pokemon Card Base Set

Complete Pokemon Card Base Set

Complete Pokemon Card Base Set A few weeks ago I finally grabbed the last few Pokemon cards to finally complete the Base Set, which is incidentally my first fully completed set! As you will see from some of these pictures there is a mix of all FOUR of the versions of base set that were released. There are some first edition cards, several shadowless cards, several European(?) release cards (as indicated by the tint on the cards and the release years on the bottom) and every unlimited base set card.   Collecting Some of you may be curious how I …

Flashfire Booster Box Opening

Flashfire Booster Box Opening

Flashfire Booster Box Opening I had started collecting Pokemon cards again (from scratch) shortly after Flashfire released so I did not have the opportunity at the time to get a booster box. I recently had the chance to pick up one for a good price (In Canadian standards) and jumped on it. Like everyone else I was hoping for a Mega Charizard to make this Flashfire Booster Box Opening truly great! I took the time to picture all of the openings as usual and also to pull together some stats on all the pulls. Here is a quick look at …

Roaring Skies Booster Box Opening

Roaring Skies Booster Box Opening

Roaring Skies Booster Box Opening   I purchased a booster box today on the release date (May 6) of Roaring Skies and decided to do a little write up on my Roaring Skies booster box opening. Most of this will just be pictures but I will provide a running commentary on things that are interesting in this set and about cards that I pulled. First things first, the pack art is pretty awesome. It features some prominent cards from this Roaring Skies set such as Mega Rayquaza, Mega Latios, Deoxys and Mega Gallade.   The Packs (All 36) Right away get one …

Ultra Rare Pokemon Card Purchase – 8 Full Arts

The other day I had pooled some money together to purchase a few good deals on cards that I really needed or wanted. I bought them on Amazon with free 2 day shipping at comparable prices to the average to best ebay deals going. As a result I am super pleased and it actually only took 1 business day to get here! Gardevoir Cards To start it off I will show off my one and only regular Ex card I purchased. Gardevoir Ex is one of my favorite cards from the Primal Clash set and makes for an awesome and …

Seismitoad Bat Deck – Decks For Fun

seismitoad bat deck

Seismitoad Bat Deck The second of my Decks for Fun segment is a variation of a very popular Seismitoad Ex Deck. I have dubbed this the Seismitoad Bat Deck because of the obvious Seismitoads and inclusion of the Zubat line for the sake of this write up. In actuality I call this the “Annoy My Girlfriend” deck because when it works properly it is exceptionally annoying to play against hence where the decks for fun part comes from! Like my last deck for fun, Camerupt Ex Deck with Pyroar, this deck is made only of cards that I own and …
