Legendary Collection 3: Yugi’s World Review – Looking back at what started it allPosted 3:55 pm on Monday, October 22nd, 2012 by Chris Del Castillo
Konami has gone back and released some impressive stuff with the Legendary Collections in the past. The first is Legendary Collection that featured 6 Ultra Rare cards that started and finished the first Yu-Gi-Oh! Series. With the three god cards, Seto Kaiba’s Blue-Eyes White Dragon, Yugi’s Dark Magician and Joey’s (Jonouchi) Red-Eye Black Dragon along with six of the original packs from the series in a silver binder, you could use to store your cards.
Legendary Collection 2 took a different path. It still featured a folder, but this time it also included 13 Ultra Rare cards all focusing around the GX series. This time Konami released the Mega pack set focused on older cards surrounding decks from the series like Lightsworn, Elemental Heroes, Gladiator Beasts, Crystal Beasts, Six Samurai and reprinting some of the cards and giving them rarities they had never seen before, in total this set featured 279 cards, later thou Konami released the Ra Yellow Mega packs, which had different rarities for some of the cards but could be bought as single packs rather than a set.
Introducing Legendary Collection 3: Yugi’s World, it’s been available since October 2nd and features cards mostly from the original Yu-Gi-Oh! series but also a few from later series and sets like Solemn Warning. Instead of another folder each set comes inside a specially designed box containing 5 Mega packs, a collapsible two sided board for dueling, and four Ultra Rare cards and 3 Ultra Rare tokens including the never released outside of Japan “Kaien the Emissary of Darkness Token,” and a tournament legal “Seal of Orichalcos.”
The set features new rarities never seen before for monster cards and staple cards. For the first time ever, cards like Dragged Down into the grave are Super Rare, while cards like Dark Hole and Compulsory Evacuation Device are Secret Rare. There are 59 Secret Rare and 47 Ultra Rare cards, so it won’t be easy to get them all, especially the highly wanted Black Luster Soldier – Envoy of the Beginning Secret Rare card. Just like any other set, it is always a chance of what you pull.
Legendary Collection 3 is great for people who want to get higher rarities on cards and don’t want to spend a lot of money. A super rare Bottomless Trap hole can run up to $100 dollars, but in LC 3 you can pull an ultra rare. The same can be said about other cards in this set, or even just getting other cards to trade for what you really want. Out my pulls I can replace six cards from my deck for higher rarities, so I’m pleased with it. Pulls will always be different, since you never know what you will pull. Each Mega pack contains 1 Secret Rare, 1 Ultra Rare, 1 Super Rare, 1 Rare, and 5 Common cards.
Legendary Collection 3: Yugi’s World retails for $29.99 and is available at places like Toys”R”Us, Target, Kmart or anywhere else that carries Yu-Gi-Oh! cards.
