Konami will expand its Yu-Gi-Oh! tin program and has added a new set of sleeves, according to Yumi Hoashi, Vice President of Card Business at Gen Con. Konami will release the new Prophecy Destroyer tin in January. Konami has been exploring different styles of artwork, and one of these new style pieces will decorate these new tins. Hoashi explains:
"We’ve started using international illustrators for the artwork on our cards, and we wanted to see how the Yu-Gi-Oh! fans would embrace this type of artwork. So, we featured it on our tin that’s launching in January."
The tin will include 5 booster packs of Yu-Gi-Oh! cards plus a set of variant cards. The Secret Rare variant card will feature the same "Prophecy Destroyer" artwork as the cover of the tin.
On November 9th this year, Konami will release a set of card sleeves tied to the recent Legendary Collection 3: Yugi’s World collector set (see "'Yu-Gi-Oh! Legendary Collection 3'"). The new card sleeves feature the artwork for the "Seal of Orichalchos" along with Yugi himself. This version of Yugi was specifically designed for the Legendary Collection. The card sleeves will be available in 50-count packages.
