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 …

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!

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 …

Pokemon Card Collection Buy

I recently purchased someones collection from them that they were trying to offload quickly. I spent $200 Canadian on it and was buying it somewhat blindly. There were only a few cards in here that I knew of for certain such as the Shining Gyarados and Full Art Blastoise. There are around 1800-2000 cards total in here but I have taken pictures of some of the highlights and cards that interested me!   The lighting was low for some of these pictures but you should still be able to make out what they are! Almost all cards in here are …

Pyroar Box Pokemon Review

      Today I will be reviewing the Pyroar Box I picked up. As depicted on the left this is the little collection you get when purchasing it. For the price I got it for it ended up being a good deal, especially over here in Canada where everything is more expensive. I am not overly familiar with Pyroar and Litleo but he seems to be somewhat of a fan favourite. I can definitely see why as he seems pretty cool and is the counterpart to Charizard in the flashfire set.     This set comes with a few …

The tin ofcourse came with our Mewtwo Ex promo card as well as a few other things; 4 booster packs, which are actually the 4 that I just …

Buy Pokemon Cards – Legendary Dragons of Unova

Legends of Unova Collection

When going to the store to buy pokemon cards or a pokemon tin I stumbled upon the last one of these collections in the store. I really liked the look of it so decided to buy it while I was there. The way the collection was set up appealed to me more than the jumbo cards seen in several other of the collections. In this Legendary Dragons of Unova collection box you receive several things. This collection, instead of the jumbo card, included three figurines. One of Reshiram, Zekrom and Kyurem which are all very cool pokemon. Even better you …
