Pokemon at Burger King

Just a little quick news feed, Burger King now has pokemon tcg toys in thier kid's meals like they did last year. Last year they were celebrating Diamond and Pearl and this year it's Platinum.

The toys include:
Giratina lenticular rocker
Shaymin lenticular rocker
Regigigas card holder
Pikachu card holder
Card Frame (Red)
Card Frame (Blue)

For those that don't know, a lenticular pictures are those that change when you hold them at a different angle. The Giratina swaps from Origin to Altered Forme and Shaymin swaps from Land to Sky forme. The rockers also hold cards in the back. Each toy also comes with two reverse holo cards stamped with the Platinum logo (even though the cards aren't from the Platinum set).

There are several rares in the set including Palkia, Dialga, Giratina, Leafeon, and Glaceon as well as the usual commons like Turtwig, Piplup, Pikachu, etc.

I went with my friend Aaron to Burger King out of chance today and they had them. He got Shaymin and I got Giratina. I got Piplup and Chimchar in the cards, but he lucked out and got Leafeon and Glaceon.. and Lauren went later and got a Piplup and Giratina. If you play cards and use any of these pokemon it'd be well worth your time to get them. The Leafeon and Glaceon are both originally from the Majestic Dawn set and the Giratina is from Legends Awakened.
