Venusaur-EX Red & Blue Collection
$24.99 at Most Major Retailers
Part three in the Red & Blue Collection brings us to Venusaur, the fully evolved form of Bulbasaur, the grass type Starter Pokémon of the Kanto region. The $24.99 box gives you four Booster Packs of the limited Generations expansion, a Venusaur-EX promo reprint with new artwork (XY123), and most importantly a beautifully sculpted Kaiyodo figure of Venusaur. The figure alone is worth the price of admission, matching the attacking style of Charizard and Blastoise, highlighting Venusaur’s vines. As always, Kaiyodo captures the look and expression of the Pokémon perfectly. The promo card is pretty neat too, featuring a full art style artwork of Venusaur, hanging out with a Vileplume and Scyther, much like Charizard and Blastoise featuring other Pokémon as well. As with Blastoise, Venusaur isn’t much to write home about, but if you plan on using the card for anything, you might as well make it this one. Finally, included is a PTCGO code card that will unlock the four Generations Booster Packs, the Venusaur-EX promo card, as well as a set of exclusive Venusaur sleeves for use in the game. Fans of Venusaur shouldn’t pass this one up. The artwork on the card and small figure are worth it, not to mention the chance to get some awesome cards in the Generations packs. In two months, Pikachu will be upon us.
