Dialga, Palkia, Darkrai February 2008 Tins, DP5 Release Date

School is extremely busy this week, as is life!

February 2008 Tins – Three new Diamond and Pearl tins will be released on February 25th, each featuring Dialga, Palkia, or Darkrai. Every tin will come with four booster packs and a special promo card, and will cost around $13.00. Click the thumbnail below to view a larger version of the Dialga and Palkia tins. Anyone want to bet we will get Dialga, Palkia, and Darkrai cards in these tins?

2008 Dialga and Palkia Tins

As for alternate-artwork reprint cards, which are usually included in these types of tins, there is no alternate Darkrai Lv.X yet, so including the alternate Dialga Lv.X and Palkia Lv.X promo cards that were released in Japan a while ago probably will not happen. There are, however, reprints of regular Dialga, Palkia, and Darkrai cards that have not been released in America yet, so those have a possibility of being included. Of course, PUSA could always include new promos and break their trend of releasing reprints!

Great Encounters Blister Packs – When “Great Encounters” is released, a three-pack blister package will become available, containing three booster packs of the set, a Dialga or Palkia coin, and a select promo. (Perhaps like with the “Secret Wonders” blister packs, the promos included will be reverse holos of cards not available in the set’s booster packs. This is only speculation, though.) Each blister pack will probably cost around $12.00.

DP5 Release Date – Forgot to update yesterday’s DP5 news story with this information, but “DP5: Temple of Anger, Cry from the Mysterious” will be released in Japan on March 14th. Yep!
