‘Shining Legends Special Collection: Raichu-GX’ Product Image!

The “Shining Legends Special Collection: Raichu-GX” will be released in America and Europe on January 5th.

It will come with a full art Raichu-GX foil promo, a jumbo version, a foil Pikachu promo, a Raichu coin, five Shining Legends booster packs, and a PTCGO code card.

Raichu-GX’s full art was removed from Shining Legends and placed into this product, but its regular GX and rainbow rare remain in the set.

Pikachu is from Shining Legends, but the one in this product will be printed on galaxy holofoil paper.

    Yeah it's great to see Pokemon literally rip cards from a set and place it in a shitty 30-40 dollar box. Not lazy or greedy at all... /s

    I agree but since i buy singles that means that all many chase cards from the set will be reasonably priced because we can just buy a box instead.

    Can't buy a box of Shining Legends, so I am very pleased the GX's are moving into these sets. It'll make the cards more available than if you could only get them in bundles (like Jolteon EX before the Mega Power collection)

    Love the looks of this set, and Raichu is one of my favorite Pokemon, but I'm tired of TPC making these $40 boxes and ripping cards from sets...:(

    We're getting both. This box comes out in January and the figure box was supposed to be in October, however it was delayed until sometime in 2018. (most likely March)

    Yeah, but the full art one is my favorite of the three because it reminds me of the old Fossil Raichu. Not a huge fan of Rainbow rares but it's better than them taking THAT out too! Haha.

    Yeah, sure is great having 3 different versions of Kommo-o GX in Guardians Rising AND having it as a GX box with alternate art. I mean it's such a great card, after all. Who wouldn't want to pull it instead of Tapu Lele or a full art DCE? This totally doesn't inflate the set and make it harder to collect just so people have to buy more packs, no sirree. Having 51 cards out of 169 only show up 4-6 times per box is not a problem at all.

    Why couldn't they just have let the card be IN the set while also having these boxes with alternative art for the FA or something? Palette swap it with Raichu's shiny... The set is called "Shining Legends" after all.

    That makes PROMOS sensible and playable, because the promos of the past are gimmicks.

    Its been quite some time since I bought pokemon cards, may I know what "galaxy holofoil paper" means?

    Is that the texture or the foil style?

    Shining Legends ensured that Oblivion Wing will remain past this season. Mind you it takes a little setting up instead of the one Dark Energy but 90 for 3 energy isn't bad.
