    Okay, not the new series... ;) Had you worried for a second though....

    It's a "Four Card Collector Frame", a pretty spiffy hard plastic frame (with stand) that holds your four favorite Pokémon cards. The front of the stand also has the Pokémon-e logo on it... for $5, it's a neat little piece to have...

    I liked getting the Neo sets bags from Target. They had 3 Booster packs of 3 random Neo sets and only costed $3. Real good deal for 3 Booster packs, check your local Target to see if they still have them. :)

    Well, crap. I just put my frame together and it was missing a screw! That stinks... :(

    Yee-Haw! I found (or more correctly, my g/f found) the missing screw. Yippie!

    That sounded like the punch line to a joke...

    Promos 16, 17, 18, and 19 are free to grab at guess where...that is right, Target!

    Okay here is the deal, if you go to the food avenue at your nearest target you can get a free promo (at no purchase necessary), it will randomly be:

    #16 Treecko
    #17 Torchic
    #18 Mupkip
    #19 Whismur

    These are all new cards that have not yet been released in any collection (for once). That is not all you can also get a coupon for the card frame (discussed here) for free after buying three of any ex-series product.

    My there is certainly alot of Target going on!

    I need to make a correction here, there is a purchase required you need to buy a medium frozen drink to get the card, this according to thier ad for this week check it out at

    If that is the case then there is more than one target not doing their job right. Besides I can't find anything on the target websites that says this.

    Hey UncleBob, go to the Diner or Service desk. You'll get one-of-four NEW promos to put in your frame. They're Wismur, Mudkip, Torchic, and Treeko.

    Well SteveP beat me to the punch about the promos at Target (but he at least knew what they were as i haven't gone yet). But are they TCG promos or ones like Topps?

    So, no more loose screws UncleBob?

    SteveP - please tell us more about the promo cards!

    OK merged the thread that MT posted as everyone seems to be going to the original Target topic to discuss the new promos. Looks like i'll be drinking plenty of Icees.....

    Wait, wait... let me get this straight... Target releases EX Sandstrom early... they get a slap on the wrist and told not to do it again. They then go and release Dragon early, so they get four brand new exclusive promo cards, a cool exclusive frame, and promotion by being affiliated with the Kids WB contest (via the $500 gift card)?

    Dang... this just doesn't seem fair at all. The stores supporting the game running tournaments and such don't even get original promos...

    So, I take it these are the next 4 in the Nintendo Blackstar series? Possibly English versions of the Japanese nnn/ADV-P promo set?

    I went ot our closest Target - and although they had the frames, and knew that a promotion was starting soon, they weren't yet giving out cards...

    Are you sure you have that right? I haven't seen them, so I don't know for sure, but having one attack cost :colorless , then the next cost :grass: doesn't make much sense considering the two attacks appear to do the exact same thing.

    (We all knew I was going to ask...)

    I assume these aren't holo cards and they have dot codes on the bottom?
