So I'm sure most everyone knows by now that Gamestop and Toys R Us had some "events" where you could get some exclusive stuff today!
First off, the GameStop poster:( Collapse )
Pretty much what you'd expect from a gamestop poster, pretty flimsy and pretty generic images for the #Pokemon20
celebration. I still really like it, though because one side has all of the starters on it multiple times, which means my main collection, Cyndaquil, is on it! xP My GameStop actually gave it to me for free but I still bought a couple booster packs anyway because they're $3.99 there and $4.18 and my Walmart. xD
Toys R Us Event:( Collapse )
So my TRU did have most of the free stuff that they were supposed to be giving away, plus some other overstock from older giveaways they've had. They had B2/W2 badge charms and Kalos starter charms but each person could only take one, so I grabbed a Delphox! xP They also had a Pokemon League reverse foil of Tierno that everyone could get, and had each one all nicely in a sleeve, too! Plus, everyone could take one Pokemon League code card for TCGO. I grabbed the one with Fennekin on it because Fennekin. xD
On top of all of that, my TRU also had a buy one, get one 40% off deal on ALL Pokemon merch. Unfortunately, they didn't have the Celebi plush or any Generations stuff AT ALL. So I ended up grabbing the Mega Mewtwo X/Y boxes with the pearl figures because with that discount, they ended up being the same price as the normal versions at Walmart. I also still needed to get these boxes anyway for the promo cards, so it made sense to get the pearly versions while I could get them at the same price as their normal ones instead of their inflated actual TRU price. xD
Next, I received 2 packages in the mail yesterday that were left at my apartment complex office. The office closed at 3pm yesterday, though, so I wasn't able to pick them up until today. It upset me for a bit at first since I knew what one of them was but once I thought about it, I realized that it's perfect timing since it's now Pokemon Day!!
The first package is one that I know for sure has something I consider a grail in it. I considered it a grail as soon as I found out about it and then bought it only a few days later. xD Here's a picture of the box:
The next package I received I actually had no idea what it could be. I have some packages coming that don't have tracking on them, so I thought it could possibly be one of those but didn't know for sure. However, when I picked up the packages, I didn't recognize the name from my Paypal and even double checked. I had received an e-mail on Thursday from my SSS host that my SSS package had shipped but they said it should arrive on Monday, February 29th. However, this is the only thing I can think it could be. Here's a picture:
You can't really tell the size of this thing by the picture but it's about as tall as that box is long and it's even HEAVIER than the box. I have no idea what's in it, as I haven't opened it yet and I plan on streaming opening everything here!! I'm fairly positive that my SSS package is the only thing this could be at this point! xD
has confirmed that this is my SSS package that they sent me!! Thank you so much, dragoniter! ;w;
Anyway, if anyone is interested, I plan on streaming opening my booster packs, Mega Mewtwo boxes, and my packages on my twitch at around 3:30 PM CST. That's in about 50 minutes or so after this post will go up. I will warn you that I will be talking, so my voice will be in it and I may get excited while opening stuff, especially if I pull good cards, especially while opening my grail, and ESPECIALLY while opening the SSS package since I have no idea what could be in it. xD

Thank you to anyone who comes and talks to me in my chat while I do this. It's a lot more fun to do things like this when people actually come to watch and when I have someone to talk to during it. xD
For those that don't watch, I will be updating this post with any good cards I pull and what I get from the packages once I'm done opening them! :3 However, it may not be until tomorrow that I update it since it does take me some time to get the pictures ready. ^-^"
EDIT: I have completed the stream and uploaded it to Youtube! 8D If any of you want to watch it, I will include it in a cut below!( Collapse )
I will post pictures, I promise! I just have to take them all, upload them, and then add them onto here, so it may take some time. xD
