Default special edition boxes or regular booster boxes?

What are your opinions on buying a special edition box set or a regular booster box? Im not looking for a particular card, I'm just trying to collect cards for trade and value. I've recenlty bought a couple absoulte powerforce boxes and got some pretty good cards. But since its fairly new, I think the value on those cards might go down. With that being said, which boxes or SE are worth buying besides ABPF?

Reg Box Pros:

Set holo ratio

------

SE Box Pros:

6 more packs
10 SE cards

SE Box Cons:

Random holo ratio



Raging Battle SE doesn't sound too bad since Allure and Dark Creator are promos as well as getting an Armed Wing sounds nice, but SOVR SE is you best choice.

If an SE box is the same price, or almost the same price as a regular booster box, and the promos are 2-5 dollars each, get the SE box. Even if the promos are trash, the SE box might still be better because it has more packs.

Example:

ANPR BB - 45
ANPR SE - 50

Since the SE box is only 5 dollars more, it is already way better than a regular box, since it has a bonus 6 packs, meaning I got the 6 packs for less than a dollar each, and still get 10 promo cards. Since Red Eyes Wyvern is already 2-3 each, and Solar Recharge is 2, I know this is an excellent deal.



Most of the time, an SE box is better, though.


TDGS BB - 34
TDGS SE - 50

In this case, the SE box is bad, because BOTH promos are worth 50 cents. I am also wasting money on the 6 packs, paying even MORE for them. I would rather get two of the regular booster boxes.

SE much better since you get more packs and the price is better
