‘Decidueye-GX / Incineroar-GX / Primarina-GX Premium Collection’ Images!

 

We now have exclusive images of the Premium Collections for Decidueye-GX, Incineroar-GX, and Primarina-GX! All three cards originate from Japan’s SM1+ set, which was released in Japan all the way back in January.

Each of the Premium Collections comes with its featured GX as both a holo promo and a jumbo card, its two previous Evolutions as foil promos, a collector’s pin, a coin, six booster packs, and a PTCGO code card. They’ll be released on June 6th for $50 $40 each.

The previous Evolutions are reprints from the first Sun & Moon set, but they’ll be printed on galaxy holofoil paper.

It’s unknown if these GXs will have the usual “texture” that their set counterparts do, as promo products always forego adding it. Since the backgrounds of these cards will look pretty boring without a texture (as they were originally drawn with them in mind), let’s hope TPCi uses them.

At this point it seems unlikely the GX’s rainbow rares will be released outside of Japan… unless TPCi really wants to make everyone cry by throwing them into a future set. We have a major shortage of secret rares, after all! Update: Rainbow rare Decidueye-GX, Incineroar-GX, and Primarina-GX are in fact in Guardians Rising!

    Is it bad that I don't want to buy this because I hate throwing away those obnoxiously large cards cuz otherwise they take up to much space and look awful?

    Although it seems costly for $50 and six packs, the decidueye gx is selling for $25 at some card shops (Canada). Due to the popularity of decidueye those boxes will be sold out the second they hit the shelves. Other two maybe not so much. Will this release lower the price of decidueye gx?

    That pricetag is painful. Glad I decided to pick some up now instead of waiting for the box.

    They are releasing a full art Decidueye GX, as a promo
    Not like Decidueye is the most played deck in this meta, not at all.
    *SIGH*
     
  7. Well, good to see that we get a box with a useful Promo - more of this please. However, the price is a bit off-putting! At least the knock-on effect should be the devaluation of the SM half-art equivalents.

    I don't really care if this is too pricey, decidueye gx fa is too good to pass up. 6 booster packs usually give you at least a holo too, probably an ex. I'll be looking forward to June!

    Not to complain, but you can buy WAY more Tapu-Lele-GX cards with that money - Like, maybe, 2.
    But I'm WAY better than those silly starters

    Not funny TPCi, I was really hoping for these full arts and rainbow rares to be in Guardians Rising. I am not amused.
     
  11. Yeah because Guardians Rising needed more secret rare stuff in it :rolleyes:

    I'm almost glad that these are coming out in a semi-easy way although there are no signs of the rainbow rares, I don't know if that's good or bad. Much like the fact these boxes are fifty dollars each, and that's not including tax. It's getting kind of ridiculous I think.

    Ew. They are adding Evolutions boosters to this? Talk about throwing your money away...

    Why not give them away to a kid who might like having it for display?

    It was already obvious that they wouldn't be in de Guardians Rising Set. I think they should have been in the Sun and Moon Base set! That would be the most logical option. It is not that TPCi didn't knew about SM+ when the put together the Sun and Moon set.

    One thing I don't get, is why TPCi doesn't follow the order of events from the NDS-games. Then the Pokemon released in the sets would make more sense. And Totem Pokemon and Trial Captains would be together in sets. Now it feels like messy releases. There is no logic in the Pokemon Released so far! My idea would be:

    SM1 (focus on sun) - Island 1
    Starter GX (Decidyeye, Incineroar, Primarina)
    Totem GX (Raticate, Gumshoos)
    Ride GX (Tauros)
    Eevee GX (Espeon)
    Characters (Professor, Hau, Lillie, Ilima, Hala)

    SM2 (sundown) - Island 2
    Totem GX (Lurantis, Salazzle, Wishiwashi)
    Ride GX (Lapras)
    Eevee GX (Sylveon)
    Other GX (Lycanroc)
    Characters (Kiawe, Lana, Mallow, Olivia)

    SM3 (Moon) - Island 3
    Totem GX (Vikavolt, Mimikyu)
    Sub-Totem GX (Gengar, Metagross)
    Eevee GX (Umbreon)
    Other (Alolan Ninetales, Turtonator, Drampa)
    Character (Acerola, Guzma Molayne, Nanu)

    Etc...

    Evolutions has a plethora of tech cards in it, such as:
    Rattata, Starmie, Electrode, Brock's Grit, Misty's Determination, Energy Retrieval, Revive, Switch, DCE, etc.

    FA M Charizard is worth around $20, and FA Dragonite (a playable card) is around $7.
    Sure, it's no Roaring Skies, but I wouldn't say you're throwing your money away... Especially since it looks like it's only 1 evo pack.

    The jumbo cards are a joke, I wish they made more figure boxes, at figures hold more value and are worth displaying

    The fact that they are full arts and that the product is 50 dollars instead of the normal 40 for this kind of thing indicates that they will be textured.

    Well... that's different. I mean yeah, I'm incredibly happy that they're releasing the FA cards as promos (Plus I've been REALLY wanting to get the FA Decidueye), but at the same time I'm kinda confused why they're doing the normal FAs in this promo set, and the Hyper/Rainbow one in Guardians Rising.

    At the same time, though, I was thinking to myself 'These things are probably gonna end up in Guardians Rising', so my prediction there came half true XD

    Prediction: Within a few days of release there won't be a FA Decidueye GX box anywhere in stock but you may get crushed if the mountainous piles of Primarina and Incineroar boxes clogging the shelves happen to tip over....much like the heap of Dragonite EX and Charizard EX boxes found at most retailers right now...
