Notice for Australian Collectors

If you collect new English stuff then be prepared for a price rise if you buy your cards locally or from Australian ebay sellers. My local card shop told me he got an email from his supplier(Bandai I think) saying prices will be going up from November 1st.

Obviously because of the dollar ratios. But I wouldnt be surprised at a 10 or 15 dollar booster box rise.

Shout out to Australian collectors for being the truly persistent ones.

Y’all are in a crapshoot in terms of paying to collect right now and I feel for you.


:PMore good news

I don’t understand we already pay more for booster boxes? $90US versus $130-$140AUD lol. Have they no mercy!

Card shops cost price is going up so the increase gets passed onto consumers.

Because $35 collection boxes and tins just wasn’t enough. It’d be nice if TPCI/Nintendo could somehow see we’re paying a ludicrous amount for their cardboard and do something about it, like reducing stock cost to international retailers. I don’t know how they expect the hobby to survive.

The case for japanese exclusive collecting is getting stronger, boys.


@milhouse Is this increase worldwide or just aussieland?

I could say exactly same things about Finland ( sorry for little OT ). A year ago you could buy new sealed boxes for ~100 USD, as we speak cheapest one is 155 USD + shipping. Would be nice to support local card stores but they are making it so damn hard.


No idea, but I’d guess just Australia/New Zealand because of the poor dollar.

Quite scary ey…

I don’t know what to think anymore…


Yes, yes it is…

Australian dollar is shit against everything, it’s even down to 1:80 AUD:YEN


I wish this was only a problem with the US dollar. Instead this issue stems from poor political decisions by our in power government.

This shits me to tears…

The CAD isn’t doing too well either…not as bad as the AUD, but still no bueno…


I would comment about how well my dollar is doing, but I don’t want to Jynx myself. :stuck_out_tongue:

@funmonkey54 please do ;_;. Anything I make is $0.75 to the US dollar right now! It’s at approximately $0.50 to the GBP.
So wanting the 150 GBP card will cost me around $240 USD or $300 CAD ;__;

What WOULD make the USD drop?


That Moron looks like a Yellow, Orange and Pink Sphincter…


Hmmm…$11,000,000,000.00 moron? I wish I was a moron like him;)
