Is the Greninja ex Special Illustration Collection good value for money?

The box contains one full art Greninja ex card, two holo rare cards featuring Frogadier and Froakie and 5 Booster packs.

Individual booster packs from special sets generally retail for around £5 in the UK and $5 in the US. The Greninja ex card is a Black Star Promo card and would likely cost around £6 / $6, while the two holo cards could be worth around £2 / $2. 

The five Booster packs would therefore cost £25 ($25) adding the expected value of the four cards takes the total to around £33.00 or $33.00 which is slightly higher than the recommended retail price in the UK and the US. The box is therefore good value for money.
