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?

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.
