Definitely a strong card, and the second Gimmick Puppet. I saw a lot of complaints that people wanted this, so I hope people are happy that they can get it.

Also, do we have a release date for good ol' Leo? My subscription doesn't expire for several months, but I'd like to know the exact cutoff just to be sure.

I am so excited I am a member to get this card. Not only does it look cool and is a cool number, but it might be one of the only legal game winning cards out there.

Did they change the name? "Destiny Leo" sounded so much cooler. "of Leo" sounds too bland.

Submitted by CeoleMizurai on Mon, 01/07/2013 - 14:09

I couldn't agree more with that. And who knows? They might change it back of the preliminary reviews from the fans is too negative, though I could be wrong. Hooray (nearly) blind optimism!

Submitted by bmazz64 on Tue, 01/08/2013 - 05:08

I agree too. It is a bland name change, but at least it doesn't change how AWESOME this card is.

Submitted by bloft18046 on Mon, 01/07/2013 - 14:49

Finally Number 88 is here!

Submitted by zen9891 on Mon, 01/07/2013 - 15:18

Submitted by killerrock on Mon, 01/07/2013 - 17:21

WHAT THE JUNK?! such a poor waste of a promo, wolfberk should of won

Submitted by bmazz64 on Tue, 01/08/2013 - 05:05

Sorry dude, Wolfberk stinks. It is not worthy of being a promo.
Number 88 FTW

Submitted by tomahtashi on Tue, 01/08/2013 - 08:38

Why does he stink?

Submitted by bmazz64 on Tue, 01/08/2013 - 20:55

What I meant was is that it should not be a promo card. At least not before Number 15 or Giantrainer or many other cards that were in the poll. If anything, it should be released in Cosmo Blazer if possible, along with the Fire Fists (which it would work best with).

Submitted by tomahtashi on Mon, 01/21/2013 - 08:17

In a way, I do agree, but it looked like Konami decided not to release it in Cosmo Blazer, so it would have been a great addition to the Cosmo Blazer release if we got it instead of Leo, because we cannot really control what they release in the booster set, but we can vote on what we get from JUMP

Submitted by bmazz64 on Mon, 01/21/2013 - 08:57

Whatever, I am sure it will be released eventually, but probably not as an SJ promo. Either way, I am sure everybody will get the cards they want in the end (hopefully they will not have to wait 12 years for it like Crimson Sunbird).

Submitted by scott15 on Mon, 01/07/2013 - 17:52

When do we get it?

Submitted by Gelasius1 on Mon, 01/07/2013 - 19:15

I've already received my four promos but my subscription doesn't expire for another two months. when would i have to renew my membership to be eligible for the next promo, or am i still eligible for this one?

Submitted by narutman on Mon, 01/07/2013 - 21:37

When can we expect this card's shippment?

Submitted by Mangareader8 on Mon, 01/07/2013 - 21:43

How do you renew your subscription?

Submitted by tomahtashi on Tue, 01/08/2013 - 08:47

So, when is the next poll for the 6th tcg promo? Apparently, I missed the 5th one (almost as if it didn't even occur, and it was JUMP that chose it and not the subscriber). Anyway, let's try to get Wolfberk or Yaksha (if they are not released in any other upcoming set or structure deck for the tcg).

Submitted by John Bae on Tue, 01/08/2013 - 10:35

The poll was promoted through this site, in newsletters, on pojo, and on social media. Next time, just be sure to check the site regularly and you won't miss it.

As for the sixth card, I'm not sure we'll hold a poll on that one. It really depends on what cards become available as promotions in Japan. Also, the 5th card poll was actually really close, so we might consider bringing out the second-place card.

Submitted by bmazz64 on Tue, 01/08/2013 - 20:50

If I may ask, what card got second place?

Submitted by ljrice on Fri, 01/11/2013 - 10:36

do i have to renew my membership to get 88 cause i got my membership last march

Submitted by ShunjiUsuhite on Mon, 01/21/2013 - 08:12

To change number 88's name back to Destiny Leo?

Submitted by ljrice on Sun, 01/27/2013 - 13:19

hey when do i have to sign up by inorder to get this card john

Submitted by bmazz64 on Tue, 01/08/2013 - 20:57

Yaksha was already released in the TCG a long time ago.

Submitted by Mario85555 on Tue, 01/08/2013 - 23:38

I think he means FIRE FIST yaksha, which is coming in the structure deck, comparing how he also mentioned wolfberk.

Submitted by xCBKxDubstep on Wed, 01/16/2013 - 16:22

yaksha isnt coming out in the structure deck sadly :(

Submitted by Mario85555 on Tue, 01/08/2013 - 23:39

Lol sorry, Fire KING yaksha.

Submitted by bmazz64 on Wed, 01/09/2013 - 05:02

Ahhhh… That makes much more sense!

Submitted by percy4billion on Thu, 01/17/2013 - 13:49

nah... i would MUCH rather have chicken- it could easily be 40-50 bucks. wolfberk could be ~35-40 also. i really want it to be chicken since i want to make fire fists (not being biased) and it would be way harder and bulled up 2 get if it was an ultra import in a set.

Submitted by Animelover3333 on Tue, 01/08/2013 - 18:34

Didn't expect a card like this to be made into a Shonen Jump Promo. I hope we get this soon, this is just too unreal. Great card to break out the New Year with :D

Submitted by killap610 on Tue, 01/08/2013 - 21:22

wat was the second place card?!?

Submitted by bmazz64 on Wed, 01/09/2013 - 05:03

I bet it was Giantrainer.

Submitted by John Bae on Wed, 01/09/2013 - 16:31

I can't tell you what second place was since it might be the next card after NUMBER 88...

Submitted by percy4billion on Thu, 01/17/2013 - 13:34

can u give us some kind of subliminal hint !!?? What is its level or rank! that's a fair hint

Submitted by 000316695 on Fri, 04/12/2013 - 11:09

Can The Creator Of Light Horakhty be a promo choice sometime . That would be cool

Submitted by SANTIAGO.DOMINI... on Wed, 01/09/2013 - 09:44

when does it come out thanks

Submitted by John Bae on Wed, 01/09/2013 - 10:16

FYI, we don't give out dates in advance anymore. Last time we tried giving an estimated ship date with SLIFER, everyone took that date as the final deadline when in fact it was just a guesstimate. When the card is shipped, we'll let everyone know.

Submitted by ljrice on Sat, 02/02/2013 - 08:25

but when is the dead line for members to be eligeble for 88

Submitted by ljrice on Sat, 02/02/2013 - 08:29
