Real Photos of ‘Kanto Friends Mini Tins!’

We now have official photos of the “Kanto Friends Mini Tins!”

The coins and booster packs in the images are likely placeholders, as the tins are supposed to come with metallic coins.

As posted a while ago, each tin will come with two booster packs, a metallic Pokemon coin, and “a Pokemon art card showing the art from this Mini Tin — you can collect and combine all five!”

The “art cards” probably aren’t normal Pokemon cards, just cards with the tin artwork on them.

The tins’ dimensions are 4 7/8″ H x 3″ W x 1″ D inches.

They will release in America, Europe, and the sovereign nation of Genovia on March 5th. They will retail for $8.99 each.

    The artwork on the tins is cute. The cards should be decent collector's items, probably not much use competitively.

    Also, where on Earth is Genovia? I've never heard of this place before this.

    It's a country between Spain and France. It was a question on Jeopardy, you know.

    These are some cute art. They're no scream series but I still want a set.

    Because you can't see the packs, you are guaranteed at least one pack of steam siege.

    That Bulbasaur is really cute. Also, that’s a weird assortment of coins.

    Lol. I highly doubt the Eevee/Chancey one will have a Team Plasma coin.

    Ohhhh my wallet will be bleeding. List of items I want to buy, everything from Detective Pikachu mini set and now this, but once again it won't be released in Latvia and surprise, surprise have to pay for shipping from the UK.

    These are cute and hope that the coin is the character that the tin shows. What I hope for is that one of the two booster packs not be an XY pack. Please? :rolleyes:

    So true. But the tin bottoms are awesome. Will be a new diceholder. Steam Seige cards can double as bookmarks, coasters, refrigerator art., etc.

    Genovia wasn't in the Animaniacs country list, so it's not a real place.

    Yes, I realize that other countries have formed or dissolved since, but supposedly Genovia was around back then.

    You bring up a good point, and while I am a fan of that documentary, I stand by my statement.
