I have purchased the Detective Pikachu Collector Treasure Chest (and Detective Pikachu Special Case File that came with the binder). Everything you get in the Collector's Tin is pretty cool. You do get the following:
- 7 Detective Pikachu Packs
- 2 Booster Packs (Crimson Invasion & Guardians Rising)
- Collector's Pin
- Collector's Coin
- Detective Pikachu Stickers
- Detective Pikachu Notepad
What I've heard people complain about these special sets is the booster packs included (Crimson Invasion, Guardians Rising, Burning Shadows, etc.) In a way, I do understand because there are newer booster packs so why aren't they in these sets? Probably the best booster pack to get in the Detective Pikachu sets is Burning Shadows. Sometimes you will get something good, but other times you don't. I consider them a hit or a miss. Only once have I seen one person pull a gold card from a booster pack.
Anyways, I think getting this collector's chest is worth it. You have a good chance of completing the card set. I have opened mine (along with one other set) and I'm only missing 2 cards. Not bad. I plan to buy other sets (GX) to fill up my Detective Pikachu binder and have a chance of completing my card set.
Also, if you're wondering why there is only 4 cards in one pack, it's because there's only 18 cards in the set (not counting the GX/promo cards). I do wish that they had at least contained 5 cards in a pack since a regular booster pack contains 10 cards. Speaking of Promo Cards, there are 3 being released next month in retail stores:
Bulbasaur Promo will be at Walmart May 18th
Psyduck Promo will be at Target May 11th
Snubble Promo will be at Gamestop May 10th
There are also two mystery promo cards (giving a total of 5 promo cards). At this time, I'm not sure what the mystery promo cards are or where you can obtain them. If I had to guess, you'd most likely be getting these mystery promo cards when you watch Detective Pikachu in theaters. Anyways, I think collecting these cards are worth it. For me, it's like reliving my childhood when I had collected the first 150 Pokemon Cards in the 90s.
The pokémon detective pikachu movie is still on its way to theaters, but fans can get an early jump on the excitement by adding some super-sleuthing fun to their Pokémon Trading Card Game collection. The Pokémon TCG: detective pikachu collector chest is a great way to collect some of the new cards inspired by the movie. Included in this sturdy metal case are seven Pokémon TCG: detective pikachu four-card booster packs, along with two additional Pokémon TCG booster packs. The set also features a stylish pin, a sticker sheet, and a notepad—perfect for recording your game-winning strategies (or investigation notes)!
