    Was just wondering, are therre people out there who collect the giant promo cards? I have enough for 1/6th of a deck, myself, and they're mostly all my favourite Pokémon :) tmp_8364-IMG_20150621_134544-1270637930.jpg
     


  2. I have a lot of the giant promos myself. Not that Yveltal though or the Xerneas counterpart. Or that Shadow Lugia.

    I kind of dislike the fact that some of these jumbo promos are basically only over in Europe

    Yeah, i do like my birds and dragons/draconic birds.

    I guess they must think is we'd hurt ourselves with the figures, which is ANNOYING. I want to get that Mega Rayquaza figure, but I'll probably have to import it from the states.
     
  4. I know the feeling. When I finally decide to do so I'll have to import Yveltal, Xerneas, Kyogre and Groudon cards from the UK. Last I looked I knew where to get them I just haven't done it.

    The only places I could try to recommend getting UK Pokémon TCG items on import would be sites like Magic Madhouse or Chaos Cards, but I don't know if either of those stores ship outside of the UK and Ireland. It's always worth a try, though.

    I dislike the fact that it'd cost me over £1500 to go to Worlds.

    Truth is, Pokemon is always screwing over a region no matter what it does.

    Sweet, very nice collection! :) My favourite Jumbo card that I own is a Darkrai & Cresselia Legend. The Legend cards are so beautiful that it's really nice to have all of the artwork in one.

    Yeah, the TCG in Ireland is kind of a black spot. Doesn't help that I'm here more than the UK, so I end up falling behind on collecting cards and taking part in events. I still remember the one time I got an invite to Regionals (or Nationals, I forget which one), and due to plans I had to decline, only time it's happened and I've never had a chance since then :(

    My favorite would have to be the Shadow Lugia. Might tie with the Shiny Mega Rayquaza when I eventually get my hands on it.
     
  9. Chaos cards is the place I'd go through, I have done so before, they ship internationally thankfully.

    I can vouch for that, I've ordered through them before (though sometimes it's through their eBay store), and their service is pretty good.

    Cool Jumbo's :)

    Been having a hard time lately here in the states buying them in stores then pulling them out and there already damaged somehow.

    Also *bro-hoof* /) Nice comic you got there :)

    Sounds like they aren't taking good care of them then :(

    *Bro-hoofs back* (\ Thanks :p

    Can concur, Chaos Cards have always been pretty good and when I did have an issue (only sent half my crate and the packs were water damaged by the courier) I had replacements within the week.

    Yeah I'm assuming at what ever factory their made at has some severe QC issues.

    Probably, but I've never had any problems with the jumbo cards I've gotten.

    Hello, I'm new here.
    They should make Trainer and Energy cards in jumbo size so that you can build a deck using only jumbo cards XD
    Yes, Chaos Cards ships worldwide; I live in Canada and I have ordered from them.

    I don't see why they shouldn't, I know with the Yu-Gi-Oh TCG they've done some giant card-themed events and giveaways (I do remember seeing giant-sized versions of cards like Monster Reborn at least once about a decade ago when I played that game at some events as part of a 'how to play' thing), so having jumbo versions of Energy and Trainer/Supporter cards isn't that far fetched.

    I didn't really care much for the giant cards until getting my first one. Picked up a Rayquaza box cheap today and the giant card is really nice!
    The holo effect matches the regular sized card which is a nice touch, how do you all store/keep these cards though? Can't fit them in a binder, anyone tried framing them?

    If you find a binder that is designed to hold A4 documents in sleeves, then you can easily fit the cards into those sleeves.

    My local game/card shop that hosts Pokemon TCG tournaments raffles off goodies to the players pretty much every tournament (great TO). One time the prize was 2 jumbo base set Pikachu cards in jumbo top loaders (one for each player in the pairing). Me and my opponent were 1 number off :(
