The official Transformers facebook page has posted another piece of card art from Mobage's upcoming Transformers: Legends mobile device game. They've blurred the name out so facebook fans can guess his identity, but I think it's safe to say most of us Seibertronians will instantly recognize him as the G1 Deluxe Insecticon Chop Shop!

TRANSFORMERS: Legends is coming soon! Can you guess who this character is? One hint: it's a Decepticon! Find out more at: http://www.transformers-legends.com/

When I saw the name "Chop Shop", I was worried that it was going to be another "not-Shrapnel" falling victim to loss of name copyright, so I'm pleasantly surprised to see this is indeed the good ol' Deluxe kleptomaniacon! Without the deely-bops on his antennae, he looks quite badass to boot!

Mobage's Transformers: Legends mobile device game has been released overseas, Singapore and Australia at least. Our own site moderator Burn, who has downloaded the game, has shared the following gameplay review and screenshots.

Additionally the folks over on the Planet Iacon facebook page have posted 25 of the character cards with their stats. Check out the images mirrored below.

If you're outside the US the game may be available to you at the link listed below:
Google Play Store link

Burn wrote:So, game play is basic, as you would expect for a mobile/tablet game.

When you join up you choose your faction. This seems pointless though as you can build both Autobot and Decepticon teams and participate in Autobot and Decepticon missions.

You have two ways to earn XP. Missions (which uses Energon) and Battles (which uses Energon Battle Cubes). Once you've used all your energon and battle cubes up you have to wait for it to replenish.

In missions you have a job to do, but it's basically press the scan button. This can result in either finding character cards, or you have to deflect attacks by Swoop or Ramjet (depending on your faction). You may also come across a Cache which gives you the chance to win rare cards. As the mission progresses you may also battle a boss whose weapon you can win. You earn XP points and Credits.

In Battles you fight other players. Well not so much fight, you line your cards up, winner is determined by stats. You earn XP and Battle Points

Cards you collect can be used for either trans-scanning your characters (you need to find both a matching robot mode and alt mode to trans-scan them together so they can transform), alternatively you can use them to upgrade existing characters (at the cost of credits) or sell for credits. Same goes for weapons.

There's the Space Bridge which you can use to request more troops (cards). There's a variety of ways to use the space bridge. Game credits (dish out the money), Battle Points, Ally Points, Bronze Warrior Medal (you get these when you level up) and Bronze Weapons Medal (not sure where you get these)

Friends playing? Add them as Allies. So far the only advantage I see is to "cheer" them and earn Ally Points for the Space Bridge.

It's a simple game, very beautiful artwork. Looks great on a 7 inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 2. My only complaint? You have to have an active internet connection.

I love the fact that the character art is based on recent toys.

The character art is GORGEOUS!

Game play is simplistic and won't hold your attention past a few weeks, and once you collect all the cards you'll probably never want to play again, but for now it's a nice break from Angry Birds Star Wars!

Those all look really good (Red looks like his MTMTE design with the colors reversed to me), but is Shockwave based off the Frenzyrumble custom? Also, anyone got pictures of their alt-modes?

Seems to follow the same format as alot of the other mobage games. I've been playing Deity Wars for a few months and Marvel War of Heros for a few weeks. There are some minor differences but in general they're basically the same game with different words and pictures.

Anyway the art for TF Legends is AMAZING. I too like that the art reflects current products.

Can't Wait!!! I'll see you all there I'm sure.

For some reason I lost my Ratchet (probably fused with Hound) so I feel like an inferior entity on the battlefield.. :(

Wonder how to reset :p

Actually i'm sure I trans-scanned Scourge but apparently not.

Bit hard to work out whether it's a bug or just my mind playing tricks.
