Sarhan won an Ultra Rare Blood Mefist YCS Prize Card, and an invitation to his 2012 World Championship Qualifier and more fabulous prizes.

Additionally, on Saturday, Chase Fulmer from Suwanee, Georgia won the Dragon Duel (for Duelists born 1999 or later) adeptly outplaying his Yu-Gi-Oh!

4Kids Plans Sale of Major Yu-Gi-Oh! Assets to Firm Tied to Saban
Posted Thursday, 4/19/2012 by PPNSteve

Proposed sale has KidsCo firm buying Yu-Gi-Oh! assets for 10 million USD

Our friends at Anime News Network reports that documents filed to the US Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York on Tuesday have revealed that North American anime distributor and Yu-Gi-Oh! anime licensee 4Kids plans to sell what they describe as "substantially all of [their] Yu-Gi-Oh!-related assets" to KidsCo Media Ventures LLC, a company that was incorporated on April 4, 2012, for ten million dollars.4Kids

While KidsCo is incorporated in Delaware, the address listed in the documents for the company is identical to the address for the Saban Capital Group, an investment firm whose subsidiaries own the Power Rangers franchise and others, and contact emails listed for the company are also tied to the "saban.com" domain name.

As part of the bankruptcy proceedings, an auction will be held for these assets if a qualified bidder appears, but as a "stalking horse bidder," KidsCo will enjoy bidding protections such as a fee that must be paid to them by a winning bidder.

The primary asset that will be acquired in the deal is what the documents refer to as the "Yu-Gi-Oh! Business," which is defined as "business relating to and commercial Use of Yu-Gi-Oh!, including the rights granted under the Yu-Gi-Oh! Grant Agreements, all other Purchased Assets relating to Yu-Gi-Oh!, The CW Block and 4Kids' right to Use and profit from the foregoing and the Yu-Gi-Oh! Related Intellectual Property, the Yu-Gi-Oh! brand, and Yu-Gi-Oh! Productions."

The proposed sale also includes the sale of rights relating to the Dragon Ball Z series, including 52 episodes of the television show, as well as the company's rights relating to Dragon Ball Z Kai. The closing date for the sale described in the agreement is June 30, 2012.

4Kids filed for bankruptcy last year shortly after a lawsuit was filed by TV Tokyo, Nihon Ad Systems, and ADK. The suit reached an "amicable" settlement earlier this year, with ADK and TV Tokyo paying US$8 million to 4Kids.

(Konami) is the perfect introduction to the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG and all that it has to offer Duelists.

Starter Deck: Xyz Symphony, the largest Starter Deck in eight years, has everything a budding Duelist needs to start the quest to become a Champion Duelist. It is chock full of some of Yuma's favorite, powerful, and easy-to-use monsters from the all-new Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL animated series. It also includes five Xyz Monsters, including Yuma's signature monster - Number 39: Utopia.

Yuma's signature monster  Number 39: UtopiaYou can't build a winning Deck out of monsters alone, so Starter Deck: Xyz Symphony also includes ten Spells and ten Traps to bolster a beginner's hand. When a player needs help, Spells and Traps are vital for staying in the game. They can power up monsters, weaken or destroy enemy monsters, make it easier to Xyz Summon, and a whole lot more! Ego Boost, Swords of Revealing Light and Heartfelt Appeal are just a few of the handy and effective Spells and Traps that help to round out this 45-card Deck.

Once players have become familiar with the game through using the Starter Deck, they can hone their skills by Dueling with friends or checking out a local store that runs Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG tournaments. Players can even Duel in a Starter-Deck-only event at a Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series or Yu-Gi-Oh! Extravaganza event! For more event details go to http://www.yugioh-card.com/en/events.
