Large Image of ‘Island Guardians-GX Premium Collection!’

We now have a large image of the “Island Guardians-GX Premium Collection” featuring Tapu Lele-GX!

As posted before, the box will cost $49.99 and come with…

  • 1 foil promo card featuring Tapu Lele-GX (an “A” alternate promo card)
  • 1 foil promo card featuring Tapu Fini-GX (an “A” alternate promo card)
  • A colorful playmat featuring all four Island Guardians (you can see it rolled up on the right side of the product image where Tapu Lele’s face is)
  • 8 Pokemon TCG booster packs
  • A bright metallic Tapu Lele coin
  • A foil oversize card featuring Tapu Lele-GX
  • A PTCGO code card

Tapu Lele-GX is an alternate art promo card, so it will only be legal for as long as the original Tapu Lele-GX from Guardians Rising. It seems TPCi is attempting to keep the legality of our cards in sync with Japan.

The collection will release in the U.S. and Europe on November 2nd.

    Sick mat. I love that this'll make Lele more accessible. And, it's not a complete money-waster.

    I wonder if there will be a collection like this for the other two Tapus.

    Nah doubt it. They got their moment with the Island Guardians tins.

    This is definitely one of the better holiday box sets that they have come out with. Because even if you have dups of lele you can never have enough, your getting the latest card packs with Lost Thunder and the coin and mat should be pretty good.

    If this ships with anything before Sun & Moon it will def be a shady move by the P.C.

    Has anyone figured out why they do this??? This is pretty common with electronics, too, including video games. Does Japan simply not understand how exchange rates work, or is it other factors like increased costs due to shipping and customs?
