Friday, 12.17.04   Blue-Eyes Black has updated the promo spoiler: "I have another updated promo spoiler for you today. The new addition is DL6-EN001 Toon Gemini Elf. Credit goes to bishop for confirming the card and its text." - Blue-Eyes Black   The spoiler is in the left margin like always if you need it. ;-)

Here are some details on that Toon Gemini Elf card from Zera:

Toon Gemini Elf
This card cannot attack during the turn that it is normal summoned, flip summoned, or special summoned. When "Toon World" on the field is destroyed this card is also destroyed. If "Toon World" is on your side of the field and your opponent does not control a toon monster, this card can attack your opponent's life points directly. When this card inflicts battle damage to your opponent's life points, your opponent discards 1 card randomly from his/her hand.

Thursday, 12.16.04   Well, that rare Cyber-Stein card sale finally closed on Ebay last night.  For some reason, the price actually dropped $100 in the last 12 hours of bidding.  Some 9 year old probably retracted a bid??!  Anyway, the card did finally sell for $23,000.  I'm not positive, but I'm thinking that is the highest price ever paid for a Trading Card Game Card.  I do know of a 3-card Pokemon Set that sold on Ebay for $22,878 in 2000.  That was for the three 1997 Trophy Pikachu cards (Gold, Silver & Bronze).  If anyone knows of a card that sold for more, be sure to let us know.  ;-)

Our Card of the Day is Windstorm of Etaqua numbered PCY-001. ExMinion, CoinFlip, Tranorix, JAELOVE and Snapper all have reviews.

Wednesday, 12.15.04   John Umali was the winner of the Shonen Jump Championship at GenCon SoCal 2004.  John's Deck List and smiling mug are posted in our Tournament Reports section today.  John took home a Cyber-Stein card, a Laptop Computer, and the Championship trophy. 

Speaking of that Cyber-Stein card.  One of the two in existence is still on sale on Ebay.  The sale ends tonight.  As I write this, the card is selling for a price of $23,100.  Hmmm ... You guys do know you could buy a Brand 2005 New Honda Civic SI for a few thousand less than that ... right?  Nevermind ... Chicks dig Cyber Stein cards!

Blue-Eyes Black has updated the promo spoiler: "Another week, another updated Promo spoiler. It now includes:

YAM-EN001 Slifer the Sky Dragon (since I did Winged Dragon of Ra for Dawn of Destiny)
SJC-EN001 Cyber-Stein (it IS tournament legal, so that's why it's in the spoiler)
DOD-EN001 Mesmeric Control (only in the European version of Dawn of Destiny)

Slifer the Sky Dragon is right below the Shonen Jump promos.
Cyber-Stein is below the World Championship tournament promos.
Mesmeric Control is below Winged Dragon of Ra in the Dawn of Destiny section."  The Spoiler is in the left hand margin, as always, if you are looking for it.

Okay ... now this is bordering on the ridiculous!  But I simply have to report this.  A few days ago we mentioned that one of the two Cyber-Stein cards in print was being auctioned on Ebay.  On Tuesday, the card was priced at $5100.  Well the price has now tripled boys & girls.  As I write this, the card is currently at $15,000 and there's still 5 days of bidding left!  My God!  The little birds in my ears are whispering that other Cyber Stein cards might become available at future Shonen Jump Championships.  So if you don't have a spare 20 grand sitting around, maybe you can get a free one next year. 

It should be...Speaking of Shonen Jump Championships.  Are you wondering when the next one is?  Well, you can probably earn at a shot at a  Cyber-Stein card on Feb 6 at the Shonen Jump Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Championship in Las Vegas.  Those are the dates we recently heard kicked around.  I'm in Chicago.  Vegas in February is sounding awfully nice!

The set consists of reprints of the more notable cards from LOB, MRL, PSV, and the first halves of MRD and LON, in addition to a few game promos and aTournament Pack card. The only new card in the entire set is the highly anticipated Makyura the Destructor. The set comes to a whopping 250 cards, not including the those new Tip Cards. Iíve yet to determine if there are any Ultimate Rares in this set. If I find that there are I can update the spoiler later."  This spoiler is listed in the left margin with all the other spoilers.  Thanks Snapper!

There's also a couple new Tournament Reports to kick off December.

Monday, 12.06.04  Okay ... sometimes I'm just a total knucklehead.   About a month ago, profpoke left working on the site as he simply got too busy with college stuff.  Totally understandable.  I totally spaced off that all the Tournament Report submissions were going to his abandoned email address. I created a new Tournament Report email address today.  I apologize to everyone that submitted their report into limbo in the last month.  If you still have them in your outgoing mail bin, please resend them.  And if anyone went to GenCon SoCal, we'd love to post your tourney reports this week too.  Tourney Reports will be added at least weekly to the site (if we start getting them again. ;-)

Speaking of GenCon SoCal ... Pook was there this weekend and has a report with lots of cool photos!  Check out Pook's Place today. 

Pook doesn't stop there.  He has a second "Exclusive" report for you today.  Pook talked about future releases and non-releases of YuGiOh cards with Upper Deck during his GenCon SoCal visit.  This is all detailed in an article titled: Where Are the Cards We Want?  This too is in Pook's Place today. 

And that's not all boys & girls!  JaeLove has a super detailed report on the Shonen Jump Championships from GenCon SoCal.  JaeLove placed top 4 at regionals on Friday, and placed top 60 in the Shonen Jump championships.  His friend was 2nd overall. Check out JaeLove's Smooth Journey today!
