    I got mine in the mail yesterday, enjoyed it quite a bit. My Rayquaza was in perfect shape, thankfully. It's not really the BEST of Ultra Premium Collections (Generations and SL take the cake for that I think, just by a little bit), but it's a good step in the right direction for these big yearly mega boxes.

    What it does right:
    -15 Packs is a much better amount than just ten.
    -A good amount of promos, and a good selection of them (compared to the DRM one which had...two rainbows. Yay?)
    -The mat is great, they always have been and they continue to be great.
    -The Rayquaza itself, when not broken, is beautiful. It's actually why I bought the thing, lol.
    -This is more of a comment on Hidden Fates itself, but the pull rates give enough stuff to feel like what you're opening is rewarding enough. (I went 9/15 on mine in terms of Ultra Rares or better, plus two holos and two foil energy). It's not like DRM where all I got in mine was...One Kingdra-GX. Lovely.
    -They did the plungers for the promos. Very nice that the cards are coming out mint, that's very important when it's that expensive.

    What it does wrong:
    -It's not packaged well, which is why the Rayquaza has been breaking. They really need to improve their methods on packing these if they're going to come out with these big honkin' statues. I hope they do, like I said the Rayquaza is fantastic when not broken, but this shouldn't be an issue.
    -The price tag doesn't really justify the content as much as it should. This would be good for $80, maybe 90 even.

    Overall, I did enjoy it. I'm happy with my purchase and I think it's a nice step in the right direction, but they could easily improve this. Go back to the old giant boxes that they used to do that you could reuse (I used them for bulk), and add the old stretched out ETBs (and please make them fit toploaders again...) and dividers, and you'd perfectly have a $100 product.

    Collectors box to hold everything? Nope it's not an actual box like the Shining Legends or Dragon Majesty ones.

    My Ray was broken and it's not hard to see why. It's only on there by a couple of small tabs. It was easy to fix though.

    Both of mine arrived ok. My order was from gamestop and they were boxed as I'm sure they came from the distributor. I think getting any odd order like 1 or something might increase your damage odds. I am not opening either one though. I'm over opening the set and have already pulled the Shiny Charizard so I'm going to just display the boxes instead.

    Ashco, I think it was like Lost Thunder or something where they stopped making the ETBS wide enough. Lol I thought I was the only one who'd wondered why that happened. It is frustrating. I've just been storing sleeved and unsleeved cards in those now. I use the box top for top loader cards almost like a filing cabinet they're all out in the open and you can shuffle through all of the cards.

    I saw two of these figures broken in box at Walmart. Yes it is that bad.

    I actually had to transfer some cards to another place today, most of them in toploaders. The cosmic eclipse one I used worked just fine for them. Either they fixed it or my box is a little stretched out in width or something like that. I would hope they fixed it.

    I got the box, meh pulls, awesome figure, it didn’t break but I kinda dropped it so it’s close to doing so.

    Well this is weird. There are two shiny Rayquaza-GX in PTCGO. Is it just me? I wonder what the deal is with the other one; it looks identical.

    Thankfully for my friend, the figure wasnt broken! But only 3 shinies with only one being a full art and 3 holos... I felt bad for him tbh.

    Only think different about them I can see is in their metadata. One is tagged "Shiny Pokemon" while the other is only tagged "Yellow A Art." Weirdly, the SPB version is NOT tagged as shiny. I think this is just a mistake. Probably'll get fix in the next patch.
