‘Shining Legends Ho-Oh Super Premium Collection’ in October!

TPCi is continuing to market Shining Legends in the same way as last year’s Generations. Similar to the Mew and Mewtwo Super Premium Collection, a new “Shining Legends Super Premium Collection” featuring Ho-Oh will be released on October 4th! It’ll come with…

  • A full-art Ho-Oh-GX promo that paints the Rainbow Pokemon in rainbow colors (the rainbow rare, I’m assuming?)
  • A Ho-Oh figure
  • Two never-before-seen foil promo cards featuring Shining Lugia and Shining Celebi
  • A foil promo card featuring Pikachu
  • 10 Shining Legends booster packs
  • A playmat featuring nine Shining Pokemon
  • A special booklet with a behind-the-scenes look at the art of Shining Legends
  • Three collector’s boxes to hold everything, with 12 dividers to keep them organized
  • A PTCGO code card

The entire package will cost a modest $79.99 — eye yi yi!

The product description mentions that this package will include “never-before-seen” foil promos of Shining Lugia and Shining Celebi. Those cards were originally in the main Shining Legends set, so assuming they’re not alternate art cards, it seems that TPCi is holding them “hostage” to get fans to buy this collection.

It’s also no coincidence that the star cards are Gen II Pokemon. Fans will have Gen II on their minds in light of the recent Pokemon GO update, the upcoming Gold and Silver Virtual Console releases, and the upcoming 20th movie featuring Ho-Oh and the Legendary Beasts. So this $80 collection will surely be tempting.

    Still gonna get it. Shining legends is shaping up to be the most artistically beautiful set in years, in cards and products, and this box just furthers my point.

    Why did they have to make Celebi exclusive...
    Wondering if this means the Ho-oh-GX hyper rare won't be in the set. Probably not, but maybe a new art on this promo one? I'll probably try to pick this one up, it seems pretty interesting.

    Maybe if the playmat is awesome and if shining celebi really isn't in the set I buy this. but this will sure rip a hole in my wallet. I'm not the richest of players so this is the kind of stuff that drains my wallet. Let's just hope it's a crappy playmat and shining celebi will have an alt art in the set so I don't have to care about this :3

    Welp there goes my chance of getting Celebi I guess, the last one of these boxes never made it to the UK so I'm not liking our chances of getting this one either

    Can we stop saying that the Gen II update to Pokemon Go is recent? That was back in february, its been nearly 5 months, almost the entire time that Pokemon Go was out before baby pokemon, the first gen II pokemon released, released. I love Gen II as much as any Pokemon fan, but I'm really sick of the over-marketing. Give us a freaking $80 collection box for like, Shining Basculin or Lumineon, or some other random pokemon. Ugh. And also please release gen 3 for Pokemon Go.

    "Three collector’s boxes to hold everything, with 12 dividers to keep them organized"

    If these are like the ones they included for Generations... That would be sick.
    They're actually larger and feel to be better quality than normal ETB boxes.

    ...But really, I just want the Ho-Oh figure~

    The only reason why I got the Mew and Mewtwo Generations collection last year was because I managed to get it for half price. While this is tempting, I'm not sold because of the price. (Though, never say never. I never thought I'd get that collection last year, and was content with just buying the artbook separately online. I suppose we'll see.)

    Well, I would drop eighty bucks on this but it seems that I now have to use that money to buy a new monitor to replace my current one on account that I just spit coffee all over it after reading that price.

    I've never gotten a super premium collection before, maybe I should try it out...
    Although the Mega Powers box didn't give me any EXs at all, other than the ones featured, but I suppose that's just bad luck. I also have a feeling that it doesn't mean a Rainbow Rare Ho-Oh, I think it means that it'll be a full art with just lots of rainbows on it...
    Could be wrong, though.

    You might be able to buy the gx separately. I imagine there's people out there like myself who plan on buying a bunch of the boxes and then only keeping 1 gx for the collection.

    That is true but those people might sell them for like 30 or 40 bucks, which I also don't want to spend. Life is hard man, lol.

    The figure (although I do have a ho-oh figure from 15 some years ago) and playmat plus the ho-oh gx may make it worth it...hopefully some decent cards in the packs unlike the last couple of premium edition boxes I have purchased (1 Xerneas break in all the packs).
     
  20. Its awesome seeing shining cards come out again I have a few of the old ones and I will totally be collecting at least 2 of all the bew shining cards so i can pay for my childrens college funds haha
