The last few months of the year are holiday season, the traditional time for us to release our Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME Collectible Tins. Even though Summer isn’t here yet, we wanted to give you a first glimpse of what’s to come. (You’ve heard of Christmas in July? Think of this as Christmas in May….)
These will be our 12th annual Tins, and they’re based this year around the four Dragon Rulers introduced in Lord of the Tachyon Galaxy (on sale tomorrow, May 17th!). Each 2013 tin design features one Dragon Ruler on its lid: Redox, Dragon Ruler of Boulders; Tidal, Dragon Ruler of Waterfalls; Blaster, Dragon Ruler of Infernos; or Tempest, Dragon Ruler of Storms. These avatars of the elements have been tearing it up in tournaments overseas, and are already building a fan base here in North America.
Just like in previous years, the tins will come in two waves. Wave 1 will release at the very end of August, with Wave 2 coming out around November.
These tins provide an opportunity for Duelists to get their hands on FOIL, Secret Rare versions of the Dragon Rulers, for the first time! Each tin comes with a Secret Rare version of the Dragon Ruler shown on the lid. Plus you get an awesome-looking storage tin to carry your decks and cards in. Keep bad mojo away from your cards by encasing them in the protection of a Dragon Ruler!
Also included are 4 Super Rare cards in each tin, reprinting popular cards old and new. One of these cards in each tin is one previously available only as a promotional card to SHONEN JUMP Alpha subscribers or manga readers (different in each tin). The other 3 Super Rare cards are selected from popular cards like Black Luster Soldier – Envoy of the Beginning and Ally of Justice Catastor.
Finally, each tin includes 5 booster packs of a previous Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG set!
Stay tuned to the official web site this summer as we slowly unveil more cards that will be included in this year’s Collectible Tins!
