News: September Block Announced, BW7 Plasma Gale!  
We've not even hit July and the big set block and promo mecca that is the movie run, and we've already got details of the next block happening. Preliminary reports from suppliers indicate that we've got a pretty large single set instead of the double-block that's been happening for most of the BW run.

Due for release on September 14th, BW7 is called Plasma Gale, and is set to feature 70 cards plus secret rares. Alongside the set there is going to be a deck released called Plasma Gang's Power Deck which will feature 30 cards, a play guide, and other standard deck pieces for only 780円.

It's also interesting to note that now with Plasma Gale that the BW-era has overtaken the PCG-era for longest standing/most sets released! PCG, if you included the 2007 World Championship kit, had a grand total of 10 sets, whereas BW now caps in at 11 and is going strong.

Alongside BW7, there seems to be a new kit being released. Details are sketchy right now, but from what the sell reports indicate, it's called the Top Player Choice 100+40 Cards Master Deck Build. Also set for release on September 14th with a sell price of 4,200円, the kit reports to feature 140 cards, a book on how to build 'Master Decks', and long card box with partitions. As for what cards they are, we have no clue, but we'll let you know as soon as we do.

Additionally, the September block is seeing a deck shields and deck box featuring Lugia. Whether this is a hint as to a possible card in the set or just a timed release is unknown.

As usual we'll keep you informed of the news as it comes. Big thanks to the lovely denkimouse for the heads up.
