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.

    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.

    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?

    Nice, a ten dollar discount if you're mostly just Tapu Lele hunting. 8 packs (say $3 each) makes the Tapu Lele only $16.

    Well, I guess that explains it. I was baffled to find this yesterday at Target (in a display along with Lost Thunder booster packs, Lost Thunder theme decks, and the Pikachu and Eevee tin with Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres promos). Meanwhile, I was there looking for the Ultra Necrozma GX box, which they hadn't received from the supplier yet.

    Yeah, Target breaks release date almost automatically nowadays. Sigh. I won't buy from them when they do, not that I buy much from them over my LGS, but it's really frustrating as a former employee of a bookstore that followed release dates and got screwed by Target/Walmart too.

    I don't know that I'd be shocked to see them not get the Ultra Necrozma GX box at all, at least at a lot of stores - that's a higher end box. Most of the Targets around me just carry the $19-$39 boxes but not many of the $49 or $59 boxes, only the ones that have the dedicated TCG game section at front of store (the SuperTargets etc.)

    I think it's a no-brainer to get this over the playmat version. Seriously, those pins and promos are beautiful!!!!!
