Are they collectible? Do you buy them? The only reason I’d buy one is my one of my favorite pokemon has one and I’d have it just to have. I know some come with special cards but the rest are just regular.
Are they like the special single cards that come with it? Are they kinda like black star promos?
You can get holo variants of normally non-holo cards, and non-holo variants of normally holo cards. For collectors, they don’t have much value. But for new players they can be a great starting point, which are what they are intended for.
I feel there not rare enough accept for some… I only want the Japanese 1st edition Rocket Moltres, and Articuno you just got Forthstar. I did buy the charizard, blastoise, and Venusaur outside of there decks for 280AUD in 1st Edition, and they got Gem mint 10’s.
I collect sealed Theme Decks. Just for fun , not for value because most of them will never go up in value.
The only English Decks that have real value are the ones from Base(2), Gym, Neo Destiny, Legendary Collection and Skyridge.
Still searching for that Error Dragonite from Roaring Skies. Does anyone have 1 for sale/trade?
Collect the coins from the decks! There are most often exclusive to the decks, with Ancient Origins having 3 randomly distributed in them. They’re usually cool designs that Japan doesn’t even get lately, like Mega Lucario and Mega Gengar
I only have one, but I have two en route, and I’ll definitely maintain a little sealed collection. I like how they’re sealed, old, relatively rare, compliment the rest of my collection and how they have the artwork that matches the artwork of that era. They’re like mini booster boxes, I’m trying to thing of a good comparison… like someone with a model car collection? I don’t know, I just think they’re cool!
I have a Japanese Neo starter deck (is a starter deck akin to a theme deck?) which goes with my two booster boxes, and I have a English Cold Fusion box and a Skyridge Xatu box on the way, mainly because they look cool!
