Yeah that's my thought too, that in English sets the V union cards will be separate pieces. That I think is why we got the first few V-Union cards as promos, so that players can understand the purpose before what the sets start releasing 'the really good stuff'.

Maybe you're having a difference experience, but around here I have yet to find any pin collections. I have only found one ETB. I only found one each of the Metagross/Zoroark sets and only because I preordered it when I could. I've seen no tins and Walmart did not have the boxes.
So maybe it...
Bought a random Pokeball tin (Premiere ball) and pulled the rainbow rare Charizard GX from Burning Shadows. Makes up for the fact that nothing else in there was good lol. At least the premiere ball more than paid for itself.
I know what you mean. I have a general pokecard dex. It even has what I call an 'in memorium' section which are cards that started out one type and became another (like Dratini/Dragonair being colorless types until Dragon Majesty came out or Clefairy/Clefable being normal types until XY came...
I kinda wish Vaporeon, Jolteon, Flareon, Leafeon and Glaceon were getting tag team cards as well. Maybe with Suicuine, Raikou, Entei, Shaymin and Kyurem respectively. Probably not going to happen though.
@NicoNoo BTW nice avatar.
Undoubtfully the unique holo pattern is the card itself, not the case. There probably is a way to break it out of the case but I don't know how well that works.
Of course there is always the chance whoever took it isn't looking to sell it back but will just keep it forever.
