Hello Pojo Fans,
Tincan is an adorable little weapon for the Kozmo archetype.
Despite its name, it's of the Psychic variety, meaning it will (and does) inherit the same ability all non-Machine Kozmo monsters get. Banish and Special Summon a Kozmo from the hand during either players turn is great, but its search ability may be even better.
Direct search ability and force your opponent to randomly choose one of the Kozmo cards you chose from your deck to go to your hand. Any card makes this search even better. It would've been good with monsters, but you can also grab s/t with this. While no duplicates of a card can be chosen, this effect is still pretty bad for your opponent. No matter what they will be giving you something you need, and regardless of their choice, you will retain the ability to banish this little guy to Special Summon a Kozmo monster from your hand next turn. If you don't need monsters, search all Kozmo s/t. If you need a monster for your hand for next turn to Special Summon, search all monsters. Kozmos have more than enough cards for this guy to target.
Along with all Kozmo support behind him, he's also got One For One, E-Teleport, and Where Arf Thou backing him up. This is a very good card for the archetype. 
Art-4/5- Like I said, adorable
Until Next Time


So this or BB-8 for cuteness? Anyway, Kozmo Tincan is a Level 1 Light Psychic-type monster with 0 Atk and 0 Def. We have the lowest Kozmo monster possible that lets us get any bigger one, but we also have the weakest. Emergency Teleport becomes all the more essential with this new Psychic target. As far as stats go, we have this tied with Effect Veiler, and we all know Veiler is played because of its effect. 
Kozmo Tincan has two good effects. The first is very straightforward. Tincan banishes itself to get any higher level Kozmo monster out of your hand. You can get any ship or any of the pilots, except himself. Well, you would need to raise a different Tincan's level in your hand in order to get himself, but that's not worth the trouble. The second effect is Kozmo's Painful Choice. You pay 500 Life Points to reveal 3 different Kozmo cards from your deck. Your opponent chooses one at random to add to your hand while the other 2 are sent to the Graveyard, not destroyed so don't get any ideas about other activations. Tincan can do this as many times as he hits the field and for as many Tincans that are on the field. This makes him a great searcher in the early game and makes cards like Call of the Haunted very important for the decks ability to swarm and OTK. 
Score: 4.5/5 Get 3 while they're cheap. This one won't be banned or limited on the next list because it is too new. 
Art: 4/5 Very Cute.


Kozmo's on a roll, my friends! R2-D2 here acts as a sacrificial lamb in two ways: one, you pay 500 LP and get 3 different Kozmo monsters from the deck, giving you the opportunity to fetch another Tincan. One monster stays in your hand, the rest go to the grave; but that's no skin on Kozmo's teeth.  
Now, even when Tiny Tin here is in the Grave, he's useful; remove him from play (I'd call it "Kicking the Can," lol..... Okay I'll stop) and you can special summon any level 2 or higher- emphasis on "higher"- from your hand. I may be wrong about the removal from grave, maybe he needs to be face-up on the field to do that? I wish the card text was more clear on that. I'm still calling it Kicking The Can either way. :-P
Score: Solid 5/5 for Kozmo, actual trash anywhere else
