  Pre-Selling Pokemon Tins - Dragon Ball Clash of Sagas On Sale - If It's New, It's Hot!
We are taking pre-orders now for two new Pokemon tin series. The Pokemon Platinum 2009 Holiday Tins are expected to ship on September 4th. Each case includes 9 tins, and there are 3 different designs. Each tin includes 1 Diamond & Pearl series booster pack, 3 Platinum series booster packs, and 1 of 3 foil Pokemon LV.X promo cards (Charizard LV.X, Garchomp LV.X, or Rayquaza LV.X). Cases are just $109.

The Pokemon LVL.X Collector Tins are expected to ship by August 5th. This series brings back some of the popular tins from the past few years. Each case includes 9 tins (3 Giratina tins from the '09 spring release, 3 Regigias tins from the '08 holiday release, and 3 Darkrai tins from the '08 spring release). Cases are $109.

Don't forget that we are also taking pre-orders now for the upcoming Pokemon Platinum Supreme Victors expansion, due out on August 21st! Supreme Victors includes more than 25 new Pokemon SP. There are also 6 Pokemon SP LV.X, including Charizard and Rayquaza, as well as powerful Supporter, Stadium, and secret cards.

Bandai has announced plans to release its next Dragon Ball expansion in October. The Clash of Sagas expansion introduces more than 100 new cards to the Dragon Ball card game with artwork that has never been released in the United States. Debuting in this set are Broly, Future Trunks, Bojacks, and Papaya Man. Goku's strongest attack, the Dragonfist Technique card, will be one of the most sought after cards. Two new mechanics, Back-up and Expert, are also introduced. Each booster pack includes 10 cards (1 holographic foil, 1 rainbow foil-stamped rare, 2 uncommons, and 6 commons). Super-rare gold-holographic foil inserts are found 1:8 packs on average. Booster boxes are available for $59. Cases (6 boxes) are just $348.

While we haven't seen many new releases over the past few weeks, the few products that have come out remain red hot. Legend of the Five Rings Celestial Edition has been as in demand as any product over the past few months. We just received a restock of starter boxes, and we still have booster boxes in stock as well.

The new Magic the Gathering 2010 Core Set has also been highly sought after since its release just a week ago. From what we've heard the manufacturer is sold out of Magic 2010 at the moment and won't have more available until some time next month. We have an extremely limited quantity of boosters and fat packs in stock right now, but we are doing our best to try to get more.

We heard this week that the new Yugi Duelist Packs are already sold out at Konami. Quick sellouts seem to be the trend with Konami right now. The Yugi Duelist Pack boxes have been selling very well over the past week. We would expect to see them getting tougher to find in the coming weeks. If you are thinking about ordering these, you may want to do so sooner rather than later.

Finally, one of the biggest surprises for us in recent months was the interest in Fantasy Flight's new Kingdom Hearts expansion, Break of Dawn. This was the first Kingdom Hearts product to be released since early November of last year, but it is obvious that a lot of loyal Kingdom Hearts fans had waited patiently for the new set.

No matter which game you might be playing, we hope you have a great weekend!
