  KMC Restock Arriving Next Week - VTES Heirs to the Blood Ships on Feb. 3rd
We've had a number of customers asking about our depleted KMC deck protector stock this week. We've had a huge demand for KMC sleeves over the past week or two, and as a result our standard size stock is very low and we are almost completely out Yu-Gi-Oh size sleeves.

The good news is we have a large KMC restock shipment on the way that should arrive around the middle of next week. We expect to have every design available at that time, including the new Metal Rose sleeves and oversized Character Guard sleeves.

If you are looking to place a KMC order for deck protectors that we don't have currently, please email us at sales@potomacdist.com and we will contact you as soon as our restock arrives.

Vampire: The Eternal Struggle fans - Remember that the new Heirs to the Blood set is shipping next Wednesday, February 3rd. It's not too late to place your pre-order and have it shipped next week!

Booster boxes are $63, 10-box booster cases are $619, and starter boxes are $49.

  Yu-Gi-Oh Twilight Edition Arrives - L5R Celestial 15th Anniversary Corrections
Yesterday marked the official release date for Konami's new Yu-Gi-Oh set - Twilight Edition.

Each Twilight Edition box includes 10 packs. Each pack includes 1 Ultra Rare variant "Honest" card, plus 1 Light of Destruction booster pack, 1 Phantom Darkness booster pack, and 1 Tactical Evolution booster pack. The "Honest" card is one of the most powerful cards in recent history and was originally released as a Secret Rare card in the Light of Destruction set. It is a key card for Lightsworn deck types and also works well with any deck using Light Attribute monsters.

Boxes are available for $72.

AEG informed us earlier this week that there were a few minor mistakes in the initial information they released about the upcoming Legend of the Five Rings Celestial Edition 15th Anniversary set. Originally, Alderac had indicated that there would be 15 cards per booster pack, but there will actually be 12 cards per pack. The starter decks will contain 85 cards - not 84 cards as originally listed.

The Celestial Edition 15th Anniversary set includes not only a full reprint of Celestial Edition, but also additional rares in every pack featuring cards from prior Celestial legal expansions such as Glory of the Empire. As a special tribute to the 15 years of L5R, each pack also contains a bonus flashback card, featuring a famous card of yesteryear such as "Inheritance" or "Evil Portents" in the new L5R look.

Booster boxes can be pre-ordered now for $103 each. Booster cases contain 10 boxes and are $1019. Starter boxes (one of each of 9 different decks) are $73.

Lost 1 Thru 5 Case Topper Changed
Pre-Selling James Bond Heroes & Villains
Happy New Year! We've done our best the last few days to steer clear of the piles of last year's snow that have made their permanent home in our frozen parking lot so that we could process and ship the many orders that you placed over the long holiday weekend. Thank you!

There is a lot of news to report after our extended break...

First, we've begun taking pre-orders for the next Yu-Gi-Oh Stucture Deck - Machina Mayhem. The new decks include 40 cards, including 1 Ultra Rare and 2 Rares (and 11 new cards!).

We are preselling boxes for just $51.

Rittenhouse Archives has just informed us that the Lost Seasons 1 Thru 5 case topper has been changed. Originally it was announced that the case topper would be a Kate Austen Costume Relic card.

Rittenhouse also just announced some of the details of its upcoming James Bond Heroes and Villains trading card set. Every box includes 3 autograph cards plus randomly inserted prop relic cards! The base set includes 72 cards featuring heroes and villains from all 22 classic James Bond films from Dr. No to Quantum of Solace.

Autograph signers include Gemma Arterton, Olga Kurylenko, Joaquin Cosio, Jill St. John, John Cleese, and many more! Prop Relic cards include the King Industries Dossier from The World Is Not Enough, the Renault Taxi Cloth Interior from A View To A Kill, and more!

There will be 3 different prop relic case toppers - an Aston Martin V8 Windshield card (The Living Daylights), a Carabinieri Windshield card (Quantum of Solace), and an Aston Martin Rear Bumper Panel (Quantum of Solace).

Customers pre-ordering 3 cases receive a free Chaim Topol (Milos Columbo) autograph card. Customers pre-ordering 6 cases receive a free Roger Moore/George Lazenby dual autograph card. Customers pre-ordering 15 cases receive a free Archive Box!
