We received an advance review copy of Wizards of the Coast's upcoming "Dragon Master Collection Kit." This new "Kaijudo" trading card game product hits retail shelves on Feb. 19, 2013 for an MSRP of $19.99. The "Dragon Master Collection Kit" features quite the bundle of tools for players:
- 3 Hammer Dragon Foulbryn
- 3 Necrodragon of Vile Ichor
- 1 KaijuCase Dragon Book
- 1 Card storage box
- 1 Dragon collection guide sheet
- 4 "Rise of the Duel Masters" 9-card booster packs
It's the two exclusive super rare Dragon cards Hammer Dragon Foulbryn and Necrodragon of Vile Ichor that are the highlight of the "Dragon Master Collection Kit," making it a must have for "Kaijudo" players. Unlike the unique super rares found in the "competitive decks" you'll get a full playset of three of each card, making for a total of six super rares included.
Four packs of "Rise of the Duel Masters" also help give a boost to your collection.
The KaijuCase Dragon Book is a portable card display that holds up to 20 of your favorite cards. 20 is the magic number of "Kaijudo" dragons printed before the "Dragon Master Collection Kit" and the included insert has a checklist that lists them all. There's ten plastic sleeves in this accordion-style Velcro locking binder that's small enough to fit in your pocket. In order to display 20 different cards you'll have to put them in two per sleeve back to back and either open both Velcro clasps or just look at ten cards close it and turn it over to see the other ten.
The card storage box opens sideways and is advertised to hold 120 sleeved "Kaijudo" cards. That's enough room for three full decks. It's important to note that even without sleeves you can't store your cards sideways because the card box isn't wide enough. There's a cardboard divider in the middle that creates small one inch gap where your cards can move around, especially if the box is inside of a backpack. I was actually able to fit four fully sleeved 40-card "Kajudo" decks in the box (two to each side of the cardboard divider) comfortably with just enough room to squeeze in the KaijuCase Dragon Book on one side and a few extra cards on the other.
There's an incredible amount of value nestled inside the "Dragon Master Collection Kit." If you consider that the four packs of "Rise of the Duel Masters" would normally retail for $3.99 each then you're only paying $4.03 for all the other contents, making it absolute bargain and well worth the $19.99 asking price.
