Now that Christmas season is officially here (if you survived Black Friday weekend), its time to get serious with your shopping. Here are reviews of the 3 of the latest boxed collections from Pokemon (2 pretty good products, one… not so much). We hope these will help you with your shopping decisions!

Sorry for the delay on content. We’ve had back-to-back weekends of conventions and have been running around like the proverbial headless chicken. Anyway, we just got this order in for our next show, Louisville Galaxycon. If you like what you see, come visit us there. Enjoy the video, see you at the Gym!

League Cup Finals
Remember Napster? If you were born after 2000, then you surely don’t. Nowadays, you can go to Amazon, purchase a song and download it in about 20 seconds, if it takes that long. At the turn of the last century (makes it sound like a very long time ago), you went to Napster, chose the song you wanted to illegally download, then watched and waited for 2.5, maybe 3 hours or more while your 3 minute song downloaded over your dial-up connection. It was painful. And what does have to do with this match? Well, thanks to where we live, the forgotten part of our county on the forgotten side of the state of Virginia, uploading a video to YouTube takes me back to the days of Napster. We have three matches from Sunday. We started uploading this one last night at about 10pm. It finished this morning a little after 7am. I think our connection to the internet involves some fishing line, a few cans and some Bisquick.
With that being said, here is the first match from Round 3 where one of our junior competitors, Noah S, faced senior, John H. Both were among our 6 players that qualified for Worlds in August. More videos are on the way… very slowly. Enjoy.
