This one really comes out of nowhere and is something I have never seen before. You know claw machines, the ones where you have a insert some coins for your chance to grab a plushie or toy using a claw (aka, the CLAW), well the ones I have always seen usually have random prizes inside, it's never thematic. However, a fan found a Transformers themed claw machine in Victoria Gardens shopping centre in Richmond, Australia. It uses Emiliano Santalucia's Evergreen Transformers designs both in the artwork and in the plushies up for grabs. These plushies have never been shown, found or revealed elsewhere. They include Bumblebee, Megatron and Optimus in both their modes. The fan who found this is JoemasterII who posted it on the TFW2005 message boards. You can see the pic they posted below:

Fellow Seibertronians, we have a very tantalizing rumor to pass along! Our own Shajaki has pointed us to some pictures gleaned from the Facebook group Transformers Never Die. The pictures depict none other than the most famous of all Autobots, Optimus Prime, in all his G1 glory (minus his trailer). He's packaged in the same style of retro "Vintage G1 Transformer" box that Hasbro has used this year for the Walmart Starscream and Hot Rod G1 reissues. Not a lot information is to be found yet about this mysterious addition to the "Vintage G1" line-up. These pictures may have been taken at a Taiwan trade show. If anyone is able to translate any of the information on the post on TFND or anything in the comments, please let the Seibertron New Crew know so that we can update this story! For now, enjoy what could very well be appearing on Walmart shelves in the near future in the United States and Canada!

Transformers News: RUMOR: Vintage G1 Transformers Optimus Prime Release Coming Soon!?

Take particular note of the first picture. This alleged Vintage G1 Optimus Prime release is sitting atop the soon-to-be released Transformers Siege Leader Shockwave and Leader Ultra Magnus. You can just make out "Decepticon Shockwave" on the left box and WFC-S13 on the box on the right, which is the designation for Ultra Magnus in the War for Cybertron: SIEGE line.

What do you think of the possibility of getting another reissue of G1 Optimus Prime, but without his signature trailer? Is this a hoax? A clever knock-off? A Hasbro Asia exclusive?

Fellow Seibertronians! Are you thinking Transformers? Are you thinking Studio Series? Are you thinking discounts!? Then you should DEFINITATELY be thinking GEEK!

According to our own Megatronus (of Twincast fame!), it looks like some ThinkGeek stores are discounting their wave 1 and 2 Voyager and Deluxe Class Studio Series Decepticons. They were marked down to $16.97 and 25.97, respectively, and with the additional 50% off clearance items. The regular MSRP for Studio Series Deluxes is $19.99 USD and for Voyagers $29.99 USD. Megatronus was able to purchase deluxe Crowbar (wave 1) for all of $8.49, and voyagers Starscream (wave 1), Brawl (wave 2), and Megatron (wave 2) for $12.99 each! Keep in mind that Deluxe wave 1 also includes Stinger and Deluxe wave 2 also includes Lockdown.

Megatronus asked if GameStop was having a similar promotion, since GameStop owns Thinkgeek, but the employees drew a distinction between the two retailers when it comes to these kinds of clearance sales.

Thanks to fellow Seibertron user, Sabrblade, we've been alerted to the fact that a sneak preview of the books contents has now appeared via Twitter user Heroxnet. Sabrblade himself has provided a helpful run down on what the content so far has been revealed to be.

Sabrblade wrote:First, a thorough coverage of the new Masterpiece MP-44 Convoy toy (which I'm sure we've seen some images of said pages in that toy's thread).

Next, coverage of the Movie toys for both the Bumblebee movie line and the Studio Series line. As well as an interview with Japanese voice actress Aoi Yūki, who I presume from this text to be voicing someone (maybe Charlie? It doesn't say who) in the Japanese dub of the Bumblebee movie.

And finally, the biggest news of all. Hirofumi Ichikawa is writing and drawing a brand new comic for the Binaltech storyline, in honor of that toyline's 15th anniversary! The story is going to finally give that series its long overdue proper conclusion, helping to bridge the gap between Binaltech and Alternity.

Two pages have been posted online, in which we see that it looks like this comic will be telling both a follow-up to the final Binaltech story chapter, as well as some of the origin story of the Protector, which Ichikawa had previously dabbled in with writer Jim Sorenson back in a Facebook post written for the Transformers Collectors Club's old Ask Vector Prime Facebook page (archived here on TFWiki as the second-to-last entry written under the September 30, 2015 section. It's the entry that asks about Air Attack Optimus Primal).

With the Transformers Bumblebee movie coming in just one month (to the day), the marketting campaign is picking up some major steam. Bumblebee, in his film look, is appearing in as many places as possible. He was part of the Toronto Santa Claus parade in both his robot and car mode on a float.

Bumblebee will also be part of next month's loot crate along with merchandize from Dungeons and Dragons, Fallout and more (all in th same crate).

In more car related news, Bumblebee is part of Gamestop's advertizing on Christopher Bell's NASCAR racecar. He even included a video of the new adverts being applied to the car which you can see here.

Lastly, we have not one but two Bumblebee related books now on Amazon for anyone to purchase.
There is the Junior Novel and the Passport to Reading Level 2 book A New Car for Charlie.

With the new Metroplex Theme Deck hitting online vendors and hobby shops alike on November 21st,the Official Transformers Trading Card Game Facebook page has put up card scans of the exclusive cards contained within the set. We have mirrored them here along with the thoughts of fellow Seibertron user, #Sideways#.

Metroplex Alt Mode

Transformers News: Re: Official Transformers TCG Metroplex Theme Deck Card Reveals

#Sideways# wrote:So here he is, the star of the show: Metroplex's city form. It shows us how everything works in terms of deploying his three small dudes, and it shows us the first 25 star character in the game. In this case, you have to transform him from his robot mode to vehicle form to deploy one of three characters: Slammer, Scamper and Six-Gun. You can go from one character, to four characters in a game -- tall, to wide.

You'll notice two things about Metroplex straight off in terms of his stats: He has abysmal attack, moderate defense and an unbelievably high HP of 35. This makes him the absolute thickest transformer in the game, having 14 more HP than the previous record holder of Cosmos, with 21. But just being hard to kill isn't the name of the game; if that was the case, Insecticons wouldn't be the best deck in format, now wouldn't it? More on that later.

In short, this is the most unique character we've ever seen, and it's not just because his card a nearly a foot tall. Metroplex is the first "deployer" character we've seen, and it makes him very good at doing one thing: Showing how Soundwave or Blaster might work in the future.

Now, you might think that Metroplex is really good, that you'll get out a ton of small dudes and rush down your opponent. The problem with that theory is that you can only transform once in a turn, meaning you have to have a Rapid Conversion or Roll Out in your hand every single turn of the game or you'll fall behind. Trust me when I say, this is not a feasible thing.

This mode is the bread and butter of Metroplex, contrary to what you might think given his robot form.


Metroplex Robot Mode

Transformers News: Re: Official Transformers TCG Metroplex Theme Deck Card Reveals

#Sideways# wrote:Here's the big man himself in his robot form, and his stats only slightly improve. His defense drops, sadly, and his attack is boosted to an average six, but the biggest thing one might notice about him is his ability: Flip two of each pip and your opponent's characters are all force tapped, dealing one damage to each of them in the process.

That sounds powerful.

It sounds powerful.

When you have all three of your small characters out, it is, for sure, but that will seldom happen in a game. But here's the thing: Tapping all of your opponent's characters compared to tapping just one (ala Skrapnel) is bad. When you have all characters on a single side tapped, then the side with characters still untapped have to attack -- in this case, you. All of your characters will then attack at once, leaving your opponent to attack with a character of their choice next turn.

This helps your opponent more than it hurts them. In a deck that plays heavily damaging characters and support characters alongside them, for instance Optimus Prime -- Battlefield Legend with two support cars, you want to attack with the heavily damaging character the most. By tapping all of your opponent's characters, you're allowing them to untap all their characters at the beginning of their turn including their highly damaging characters.

If it simply tapped one or two characters, then you would be denying them an attack with that high damaging character while simultaneously leaving it open to attack -- tapping all characters means they still get to attack with their damaging character over and over again.

But that wouldn't be a problem if you had a higher attack stat. With such a low attack (and defense), you won't be able to take too much ground despite your high HP and ever-increasing numbers. Now, why is that? Let me explain by showing you the rest of what comes in the Metroplex set to support him.


Slammer

Transformers News: Re: Official Transformers TCG Metroplex Theme Deck Card Reveals

#Sideways# wrote:Come on and SLAM! And welcome to the JAM!

Ahem.

First up we have another super unique card, and that's Slammer. Slammer isn't a Transformer, especially since he doesn't have a robot form, but he is useful. Slammer spreads one damage when you deploy him from beneath Metroplex, but more importantly, gives Metroplex Bold 1 passively.

But that's not all about him that makes him interesting: With Slammer, you might notice four things: One, he has the lowest HP in the game, but he also has some of the upper echelon of defense in the game as well -- but neither of those are the most important. The most important things about Slammer is that he is a Tank, and that he is four stars. This means that you can play him, Demolisher and Megatron -- Living Weapon all in the same deck and capitalize on Tank synergy.

Slammer's most use might just come from Megatron, instead of the city from which he came.


Scamper Alt Mode

Transformers News: Re: Official Transformers TCG Metroplex Theme Deck Card Reveals

#Sideways# wrote:There isn't too much to write home about with Scamper's vehicle mode, but there are two things that I really like about this. One, he gives Metroplex Bold 1 -- which is almost never a bad thing -- and two, he is a four star Car. This makes him an easy fill-in for wide Car lists, allowing you to play four Cars and to take advantage of Turbo Boosters as well as Start Your Engines. Of course, in a Metroplex deck I wouldn't advise over-emphasizing Scamper's Car status, but in a Car list, he's an easy fit despite his abilities only activating if you have Metroplex.


Scamper Robot Mode

Transformers News: Re: Official Transformers TCG Metroplex Theme Deck Card Reveals

#Sideways# wrote:His robot form is also something that only activates with Metroplex, but the effects he has are very, very good. Scrapping a weapon or armor is an excellent ability to have in your pocket, especially with how important Force Field is to swinging entire games. Scrapping weapons isn't as important (especially seeing as Grenade Launcher scraps itself after use), but I'd rather have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

His stats are, again, nothing to write home about, but you wouldn't expect him to carry games, anyway.


Six Gun Alt Mode

Transformers News: Re: Official Transformers TCG Metroplex Theme Deck Card Reveals

#Sideways# wrote:"No one dared to make a slip..."

So Six-Gun is probably my favorite character out of this whole thing, simply because he has the most useful abilities out of all three of his comrades. Moreover, he has the best stats out of all his comrades.

His gun mode has the ever-useful ability of indirect damage, he has four stars, and the highest HP out of all his friends. But this really isn't the business end of this guy. Even though his indirect damage is useful, his robot mode is actually slightly better.


Six Gun Robot Mode

Transformers News: Re: Official Transformers TCG Metroplex Theme Deck Card Reveals

#Sideways# wrote:"... The ranger there among them had a big iron on his hip."

With four damage as his base attack, he's the highest damaging character of Metroplex's three small deployers. Sure, he has zero defense, but if there's one thing I've figured out, nine times out of ten, all three of them are going to get fragged in one hit anyway. One of the best parts about him, though, is that he can be the exception to that rule through the use of Force Field. He is the only one that has five HP, meaning that Force Field will be able to activate and save him from certain demise.

Of course, don't expect his four attack to save the game for you -- it's just useful to have a guy who won't instantly detonate as soon as your opponent gets a good look at him.

But one of the more interesting abilities on this card is his Bold ability, giving Metroplex Bold 2 when you transform Six Gun. Of course, you might notice some themes here -- stacking Bold to improve on Metroplex's damage potential and to pop his ability. This is even more more apparent with Height Advantage, the next card we're going to look at.


Height Advantage

Transformers News: Re: Official Transformers TCG Metroplex Theme Deck Card Reveals

#Sideways# wrote:It's over Anakin -- I have the high ground!

Height Advantage is essentially Supercharge but for Titans, with a blue pip instead of the more useful Orange pip. This card is essentially a middle ground between Dino Chomp and Supercharge, and it definitely belongs in your list if you're playing a Titan


Protected by Metroplex

Transformers News: Re: Official Transformers TCG Metroplex Theme Deck Card Reveals

#Sideways# wrote:"I've got a lot of plans to do tonight, and dying isn't one of them!"

This card is strictly okay. It's essentially a Heroism with more moving parts, which makes me dislike it, but if you're playing a list with plenty of orange, you can't really go wrong. Plus, redundant cards in lists isn't actually a bad thing, especially with low draw power. I prefer playing Heroism on Metroplex instead of multiple of Protected By Metroplex on my smaller characters, but the end result is similar enough that it doesn't really matter.


Rally the City

Transformers News: Re: Official Transformers TCG Metroplex Theme Deck Card Reveals

#Sideways# wrote:"Alla till mig!"

Rally The City is one of my favorite cards to come out of this set. When you have this card in your hand at any time, you can use it to replace itself at worst. At best, you can use it to draw four(!) cards. This is a powerful, powerful card when you have enough time to set it up, and the premiere draw support with Metroplex.


In Closing

#Sideways# wrote:So, all in all, I would say that Metroplex is niche. It seems super powerful, but the problem is the set up time. It doesn't send everyone out at once when you transform Metroplex, it just sends one at a time. This makes it very easy for your opponent to punish your slow play by dominating each one of your small characters as soon as you put them on the battlefield.

Another problem Metroplex has is that 35 HP isn't actually all that much when your opponent can attack you several times more than you can, especially early game when Metroplex is alone.

What it has going for it is the Dinobot levels of damage that you can potentially pull off when you have all of that stacking Bold. But then, wouldn't playing Dinobots just be easier? Stacking Bold, dealing a lot of damage, tanking a lot of damage, that all sounds familiar, doesn't it?

There are such things as redundant cards in the game, but when it comes to redundant decks, I often find that the most consistent one takes the cake -- or the one that can do more damage more consistently, and that would be Dinobots.

I mean, you even play a card that is essentially Dino Chomp in Height Advantage. Maybe it's just me, but it just seems like Dinobots with more moving parts and less consistent draw.

Playing an all blue deck doesn't make it any better, either, since all of that Bold is doing absolutely nothing. You'd live forever, but you're trying to kill your opponent with the firepower of a low-battery flashlight. But all of that is my opinion, anyway, what's yours? Let me know in the comments below!
