Yu-Gi-Oh! Box Buster Preview PLUS Throwback Booster Unveiled

Posted by Yogizilla on August 6, 2011

I’ve been promising a HUGE Box Buster so here’s a preview.  I just opened up the

  • 1 Dragon Knight Draco-Equiste Tin (1 Stardust Overdrive Booster Pack, 2 Absolute Powerforce Booster Packs, 2 Shining Darkness Booster Packs, 1 Secret Rare “Dragon Knight Draco-Equiste” Card, And 4 Super Rare Cards: “Archfiend of Gilfer”, “The Wicked Dreadroot”, “Dragonic Knight”, and “Dark Armed Dragon”)
  • 2 Storm of Ragnarok Booster Packs
  • 2 Hidden Arsenal 3 Booster Packs
  • 2 Yu-Gi-Oh! 3D: Bonds Beyond Time Movie Pack
  • 1 Rise of Destiny Booster Pack

…The throwback here is the Rise of Destiny booster pack.  Now, you may know that I love old-school Yu-Gi-Oh! so coming across a 1st Edition booster pack at a neighborhood store was a pleasant surprise.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Rise Of Destiny SPECIAL EDITION

Rise Of Destiny SPECIAL EDITION - Available at Yugiohmint.com for an AWESOME price - WHILE SUPPLIES LAST (yeah, there's always a catch)!!


I cracked open the Rise of Destiny pack and was very impressed with all the great cards I got.  Here’s what came in one pack:

  1. Nightmare Penguin
  2. Roc from the Valley of Haze
  3. Element Magician
  4. Dekoichi the Battlechanted Locomotive
  5. Astral Barrier
  6. Tactical Espionage Expert
  7. Ballista of Rampart Smashing
  8. Mokey Mokey Smackdown
  9. The Creator Incarnate

One of my favorite Water monsters is Penguin Soldier so when I saw Nightmare Penguin, I was quite pleased.  Any card that can return monsters to the opponent’s hand are handy because we all know the peskiest monsters are immune to damage and/or effects that destroy them.  In such cases, your choices are limited: nullify damage, take control of the monster, or return it to the hand/deck.

The Rise of Destiny series was one of my favorites from the later Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG releases.  I’d say it’s up there with Magic Ruler, Pharaohnic Guardian, and Dark Crisis.  Anywho, I’m very excited to share more of what I discovered from opening up the newer booster packs but there are other matters to tend to sooo…  Until next time!

What are your favorite Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG throwbacks?
