Opening a Terrific Tepig Box!

Saturday, September 24th, 2011

Hello everyone! I realize that I haven’t posted any pack openings here in… well, a very long time. It’s time to change that! It seems as though all of the special boxes featuring 3D jumbo cards of the 5th generation starters have been released early. I was able to find the Terrific Tepig Box, but strangely enough, it appears that they are releasing only one of the 3 different boxes at 3 different stores. From what I understand, Terrific Tepig is at Target, Outstanding Oshawott is at WalMart, and Super Snivy is at Toys ‘R Us. I plan to find them all, but for now, here is my (not so) Terrific Tepig Box Opening!

Opening Black & White Zekrom and Reshiram Tins

Sunday, May 1st, 2011

Hello everybody! Here are some videos of the new Black & White Zekrom and Reshiram tins.

I probably will never stop saying this, but I absolutely love this set. At first, after having a set like Call of Legends with 22 holo rares, 11 shiny legends, and 8 reverse holo energies, I thought it would be so nice to have a set with 12 holo rares, 2 ultra rares, and 1 secret rare. Perhaps this would be a nice, easy set to collect. Despite my trouble pulling the ultra rares (which you’ll hear about in the videos), I almost feel like it is more difficult to collect all of the holos. Now that I have started this set, I’m glad that it’s not as easy as I anticipated, because the best thing about collecting is the challenge. So bring it on!

Oh, did I mention that I love this set?

Opening an Oshawott Black & White Preview Tin

Here is the third and final Black & White Preview Tin, Oshawott.

I wasn’t overly thrilled with the tins, but they did make me excited for the Black and White set to come out. After a while, the cards in the preview pack have grown on me. I need to learn to not be so critical right off the bat. At first I didn’t like the fifth generation Pokemon, and now I do. So I suppose that’s how it is with the new card design, too.

Opening a Snivy Black & White Preview Tin

Friday, April 1st, 2011

Here is the second of the three Black and White preview tin openings that I did. This one is the Snivy Tin and, although I didn’t pull the greatest of cards, it’s my favorite, mostly because of the Snivy figure. In my opinion, these tins are a great deal whether you’re a player or a collector!

Opening a Tepig Black & White Preview Tin

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011

When the new fifth generation Pokémon were first released, I didn’t think I’d ever be a fan of them. I have to be honest, though. I’m incredibly excited for the new Black and White set. I had higher expectations for the preview tins, but was slightly disappointed in the fact that there are only 5 preview cards available and they come in all three tins. Nevertheless, I had to open all three! So here is the first one. I’m curious what everyone else’s opinion is on the new Pokémon and the new set.

An Introduction from RenaeCollects

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2011

Hello everyone! Pikkdogs has asked me to be a part of the Team Omar community! And I’m very excited to do so. I figure the best thing to do is to start by introducing myself!

Hey, I’m Renae. I collect Pokémon cards.

I’ve only been doing so seriously for a few months now. If you know my boyfriend, JWittz, then you may know that we’ve played a big role in each others’ involvement in Pokémon. In high school, some of our peers started playing their old Game Boy Color Pokémon games and it spread all over school. Who would have thought, right? So we both decided to whip out our old games. I started playing Pokémon Yellow because I had always been a Pikachu fan, and Josh played Pokémon Red. It was our “gateway drug”, so to speak, into the world of Pokémon. (Of course we played it and had cards as kids, but this was serious stuff for two high schoolers :P)

So Pokémon Yellow and Red led to Pokémon Diamond and Pearl. At first, I was turned off by the newer generation Pokémon. In fact, until we started playing those games, I didn’t even know that many Pokémon …
