Yay, I was right.
Just preordered a set! 20.00 is much cheaper than what I'd be paying for gas and whatnot. Can't wait to get em!
theres no cards according to the auction???? confirm plz
Well, I wouldn't say that the auction says there are NO cards it just fails to mention the cards. I'm betting (and hoping!) that there is a card inside each package with the toy. Now, if someone could just find a list and/or scan of the cards!
BAHAHAH when I first read the headline, I thought it said "POKÉMON USA AND BURGER KING CORP. PARTNER FOR GLOBAL DOMINATION IN 2008."
That looks like a major scam, considering there isn't much of a way someone could get their hands on them all at once, and they haven't mentioned where they are getting them or any of the cards.
If they work at Burger King they can
yoyofsho16, you are right to be suspicious of this sort of thing and I am too. I only posted it after looking at the seller's rating and other auctions. This seller tends to sell many, many fast food items of this sort so my guess is that they work at BK or are close to someone who works at BK. I am not suggesting that you make a purchase like this though. I simply posted it as informational as it was the first 'picture' I had seen.
It sounds O.K. kind of weird
2nd Image in Ebay sale
Check the 2nd image at the bottom, a bit fuzzy, but the text is readable and I'd suspect the cards match the accessory Pokemon.
So, if this pic is real...
4 deck boxes (Darkrai, Manaphy, Dialga, and Palkia)
2 plush card frames (Pikachu and Mantyke)
6 figure card displays (Chimchar, Pikachu, Happini, Piplup, Pacherisu, and Turtwig)
and the cards would be Chimchar, Pikachu, Happini, Piplup, Pacherisu, Turtwig, another Pikachu, Mantyke, Darkrai, Manaphy, Dialga, and Palkia
BTW, there is an image of a Manaphy card in the Mantyke holder, and what looks like an Aipom (purple head with yellowish face) in the Pikachu Plush holder.
Our Burger king is already doing the Pokemon cards and toys. And they are all Reprints in RH with Diamond and Pearl stamped on the lower right corner. These are the cards in the set.
Burger King Promos 2008
When we went My son got a piplup toy in his happy meal, i got one for myself without the meal, and then i got myself another one and my wife one. We all got Piplup toys. The cards can't be seen from the outside. My son got Happiny and i got Turtwig. The other two, my second one and my wifes, i don't know what the cards are as we plan to keep them sealed. But it does go to show you that they are random in what card you get with the toys. They are not stamped with a Promo stamp, they just have "Diamond & Pearl" stamped in the lower right corner of the Picture. The Turtwig is from D/P 1 and the Happiny is from MT. They had the sample Toys on display, but didn't have time to see what set each card is from. And no the Numbering above is not the cards number in the set, they have the card number from whatever set they came from. So Turtwig is #103/130. The Toys are as follows.
Pikachu card stand
Pachirisu card stand
Turtwig card stand
Happiny card stand
Piplup card stand
Chimchar card stand
Pikachu card display
Mantyke card display
Perhaps if we get a chance tonight or tomorrow, i can bring our camera and snap a picture of the display they have up if someone would like to see them.
Hmm... Pics of the cards please as I dont get which reprint part you were talking about
There's actually some good stuff they're giving away:
I got another toy tonight, but spacey me forgot to bring the camera. Which is no biggie as we didn't go inside as it was getting late. I did get another one, which was Pachirisu toy, but will save it sealed and get another one to open and see what card i get. I scanned the two we have, and will update this reply shortly when i have it uploaded.
Hopefully i did this right, heres the link.
Is the card/toy combination always the same?
Nope, we got four Piplup toys and sadly you can't see what card is in it until you open it. Two were opened and one had Turtwig the other had Happiny. So i'm betting that the card/toy combo is random based on that.
They're not even alternative art cards?
Here is an update with scans of the checklist of the cards, the "toys" that are available, and a Grotyl that I got.

Got a pika yesterday. It seems to have a glossy finish on the card compared to the regular cards. Anyone notice a difference?
