    Ugh, they probably won't unfortunately. These feel exactly like the Here Come Team Rocket and Giovanni's Exile full arts we never got from the end of the XY era. </3

    I dont care if Japan is the main market, it's absolutely bullshit we probably won't get this like so many other products they have...

    That being said, What if Alola Friends is a secret rare in Cosmic Eclipse??

    Cosmic Eclipse is the last SM set so they'll lump everything even the upcoming new cards from the High Class whatever set in October (That would be a reprint set.)

    100% agree with you. And yet in some of their interviews, they were saying we focus globally and to value fan interests. That Giovanni briefcase I really wanted, would have been the perfect way to store bulk but instead, we got cheap version large kick standing box XY Premium collection box that had most of the content kinda useless for the collector and only increased shipping cost to deliver.

    And now this and honestly, I'm not a player, collect cards for the most part only but that leather storage box and overall premium black theme I really like does seem like very well built. I'm afraid we will get an alternative offer of Ultra Pro low-end quality offered. But hopefully I'm wrong and they partner with Decktutor and do real Premium quality.

    does it say "trash" on that discard pile area marker? LOL
     
  10. Yep, we 1000% wont get these in English. This is one of those times where you are fully and completely aware it will only ever be Japanese Release only. And i guess we cant complain...

    This generation has given us far more Japanese special items and products converted to English than ever before.

    DOES ANYONE ELSE THINK PIKACHU SHOULD BE AN ISLAND GUARDIAN? He destroyed MEWTWO in Detective Pikachu. He finally got a card showing that he is a true deity.
