'FUS ROH DIE', nice. I'm impressed with some of the pulls you got, what's nestled between the Rayquaza and Virizion? It looks like a Hydreigon or Garchomp or something which is pretty cool but I'm not seeing much I'll need from these packs haha. I'm swooning over the Torandus EX though, it's just a shame they had to ruin it with that dumb 'LEGENDARY TREASURES' logo. :(

Here's a post from my tumblr with some pictures of some things I got.

I think that matte foil you described in your Tumblr post is actually what they were going for with the foil for the Shiny Collection, since it's so different from what they normally do with their foils. I'm not sure how the card stock compares to the Japanese prints yet as I've not been to a prerelease yet. Still far and away the shiniest (sub)set of Pokemon cards I've seen officially released in English because under the right lighting the whole card is filled with the foil stars.

    Both a Hydreigon and a Garchonp, actually! I pulled one from the regular tournament and one in the booster draft. The Tornadus is so gorgeous! It's not super glossy like the standard EXs are, it's kinda matte like. I kept asking people if they would trade theirs and I wound up with 4 at the end of the day.

    Yeah, I only noticed the stars when I got home. There's not a whole lot of shine and color to the foil that they used. I don't know, I just don't think that some of the cards lived up to my expectations. Or, that I just had ridiculous expectations to begin with. xD

      I'm hoping to go to a second one next weekend. If I had money last Saturday, I would have done the second one then. Interesting set!

        I'm really tempted to go to another prerelease that's not too far away. I'm really liking the odds in this set. Out of the nine booster boxes opened at the prerelease I went to, there were six gold cards pulled, three of each I believe.

        If money allows it, I'll probably go!

          Omg the booster boxes we opened were so stacked. like 6 or 7 mews + a bunch of meloetta and stuff came in 2 boxes. Everyone got like 2-4 exs from their six packs. I unfortunately got the worst pulls at the event. I only got 1 Reshiram FA Outrager, 1 Reshiram Ex, and 1 Black Kyurem Ex Freeze Shock. In my first pre release draft. But i still happen to get 6th place out of like 20ish. went 2-2 with 1 Toxicroak and 3 outragers as my only strategy.

          My second pulls were even worse. I only got Meloetta Ex on my second set of 6.

          The guy next to me pulled the Golden Reshiram and FA Mew Ex from one pack. Its crazy. lol.

          I am totally buying a box when its realeased, the packs are just so stacked.

          The Radiant Collection itself is worth it.

          I am so going to a prerelease this weekend. Your guy's pulls have convinced me to. And then I'll buy a booster box.

          The set name is probably very misleading. Using Shiny and Radiant probably led to you expecting them to be blindingly bright! :P

          Still the stars covering the whole card makes up for the initial lacking of luster they have at first glance.

            The second pack that I opened, I pulled Black Kyurem EX and a full art Meloetta EX. I was totally no expecting two EXs in one pack! I've already got my booster box on preorder!

            That's just insane luck right there. Can I have your magic touch? I don't think that's ever happened to me.
