What are the contents of the Kingdra ex Special Illustration Collection?

The contents of the box have been revealed:

1 full art Kingdra ex card 
1 holo Horsea
1 holo Seadra
5 Pokémon TCG booster packs
A code card for Pokémon TCG Live 


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

The box contains one full art Kingdra ex card, two holo rare cards featuring Horsea and Seadra and 5 Booster packs.

Individual booster packs from special sets generally retail for around £5 in the UK and $5 in the US. The Kingdra 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.
