    News Decidueye-GX, Incineroar-GX, & Primarina-GX Premium Collections in June!

    The price difference on these between the US and UK is absolutely disgusting to be honest. So $40 in the US, that's about £26. They retail for £50 here, which is $76, that's almost double the price! Don't get me wrong, they're gorgeous products, loving the fact that both the promo and the jumbo...

    News Massive Update for 'Pokémon GO' Announced!

    I was really hoping that they'd give some sort of hint about if/when Gen 3 might arrive in this announcement :( I also want them to change how you get the Gen 2 Evolution items. I rarely get to use the app 7 days in a row, let alone hit a stop 7 days in a row, so the current system means I have...

    News Japan's SM3 Sets for the 20th Movie Feature Ho-Oh and Necrozma!

    Pretty excited to see how Guzma is used in competitive play. I don't think this card looks too bad, but it's not as nice as it could've been imo.

    News Japan's SM3 Sets for the 20th Movie Feature Ho-Oh and Necrozma!

    It's implied that when you take a card from your discard pile you show it to your opponent, since discard pile is public knowledge. They have changed and (in my opinion) improved some of the wording on the cards for Sun & Moon.

    News Japan's SM3 Sets for the 20th Movie Feature Ho-Oh and Necrozma!

    Man, I was really hoping for a smaller set with Burning Shadows! We're looking at another 160+ set including secret rares - what are they trying to do to us collectors?! :p As for Noivern, meh. As of now, DDE is going out of rotation, making its second attack nigh-on impossible to use after...

    News Japan's SM3 Sets for the 20th Movie Feature Ho-Oh and Necrozma!

    Tbh Mega Ray comes to an end [in Standard] just a little while after Necrozma is released anyway, so as a Ray player I'm not too bothered/worried! I already play 2 Hex so I think I'd deal with it alright. Actually, I think the Sudowoodo from Guardians Rising is more annoying to deal with than this!

    News New 'Mega Powers Collection' in May Featuring Four New Full Arts!

    Looove the artwork on Jolteon and Mega Manectric, and I'm really pleased to hear that these are textured! I was worried they'd be like the Generations promos and just like a sheen finish, which I think looks awful on full arts. Gotta wait a little longer for mine since I pre-ordered a bunch of...

    News New 'Battle Origin Tins' at Walmart!

    Exactly what I came here to say. I'm not sure where they'd put these in Europe though, since there's not really a big chain like Walmart common to all European countries (that I can think of, anyway).

    News TCG Sets Now Sold Early at Hobby Stores!

    It's likely that was taken into consideration as well. I'll admit, while I do support my local store a lot (I'm there once a week and always buying crap haha), if I can get a sealed product for £10 cheaper online, then I'll do that 'cause at the end of the day it's not a cheap hobby (I collect...

    News 'Legacy Pin Collection' and Entei/Suicune/Raikou Pin Blisters in May!

    I was literally just saying this to a friend the other day! As someone who buys quite a lot of sealed products, I hate seeing Fates Collide in there. There's barely anything of worth in that set at all (N's are probably the best thing tbh, and mayyybe Glaceon EX). Glad I'm not the only one it...

    News Strengthening Expansion Pack, Best of XY Pack, and Ash VS Team Rocket Deck!

    It makes just as much sense as having N in any XY set, since he was in the BW games ;) Man, can you imagine how fast those boxes would sell out if that's how they choose to do it in English?? I actually think they'll be more sought-after and just as expensive as promos as they would if they...

    News New 'Mega Powers Collection' in May Featuring Four New Full Arts!

    I'm confused as to the point of this really, when Lucario EX and Manectric EX are already out of rotation. I guess because they never got full art megas in the first place? Still seems silly to me. Like having the shiny Mega Gengar promo with no Gengar EX in Standard format. Seems other people...

    News 'M Camerupt-EX and M Sharpedo-EX Premium Collections' in April!

    I really like the sound of M Sharpedo, might try and make it work. Shame it's useless after rotation (as always, save for a Sharpedo EX reprint, which is unlikely), but still. I do like Dark decks :D

    News 'Tapu Koko Figure Collection' in May!

    I find it bizarre that the US have banned stuff like Kinder Eggs, yet allow this, and it's our European safety laws that prevent this, yet Kinder Eggs are fine here :') wonder if the UK will ever get the figures back when we leave the EU (the likely source of the law). On topic: the card is...

    News 'Islands Waiting for You' and 'Moonlight of Alola': Japan's Next Sun and Moon TCG Set!

    Vileplume is going out of rotation (save for a reprint in the mean time) after the summer, that's why haha. Although they will be in format together for a little while. If anyone actually plays that I'll just walk away from the table :rolleyes:
