As you can see below, the product image for the Keldeo Figure Box reveals that the box will feature a jumbo version of the Keldeo-EX from Japan’s BW6 Cold Flare set (if not a placeholder for another card, since the product image says the jumbo and regular card are the same card) as well as the holo Keldeo promo that was given out at Japanese Pokemon Centers this past July. The box will be released sometime in October for $15.99 and will come with a Keldeo Resolute Form figurine, the promo card, the jumbo card, and three Black and White series booster packs.

Since America’s Cold Flare / Freeze Bolt set won’t come out until November 7th, this box will actually feature Keldeo-EX before BW7, the set its EX is featured in. Thus, there seems to be a bit of a haste to release a TCG product featuring Keldeo ahead of its scheduled TCG set. Since Keldeo’s video game distribution ends October 6th, Black 2 and White 2 hit store shelves on October 7th, and this Keldeo product comes out in October, it’s possible we’ll see the Kyurem vs. the Sacred Swordsman – Keldeo movie on Cartoon Network sometime in October (and if not, definitely by November).
