Following on from the recent batches of card reveals from Gencon (Here and here!) We have the last few cards to be revealed at the gaming convention courtesy of fellow Seibertron user #Sideways#.

This time the reveal focuses on two different characters, Decepticon Demolisher and Autobot Arcee. We also have a look at a very useful looking upgrade card, that will certainly some play.

Demolisher:

Here's Demolisher's effect, for those who wish to know.
Bot mode: "When this is attacking --> Flip extra battle cards equal to his [Defense]."

Alt mode: "When you flip to this mode --> Draw a card for each of your other Tanks."


A very Prime looking Arcee (Bot mode):

A tad disappointed that there dosn't seem to be any original art so far, just reused from the legends card game.

Probably waiting to see how well it does before commissioning more art...

Plus there's a lot of good art there that is just going to waste so, may as well make use of it.

Fair, but keep in mind: It keeps costs down. Less upstart costs = Less money to make back, and when you have less overhead, it's easier to be greenlit for future expansions.

I thought it was weird that they used the WfC/FoC design of Demolisher. Then I was the Arcee. Some sort of mix of the IDW and Prime iterations.

Must have used ebay as a reference to misspell Demolishor like that.

The original Legends card also called him Demolisher and it appears to have been retconed that the UT character is Demolishor and the G1 character is Demolisher since the Kreon that came out at the same time used the Demolishor name. It's always interesting fans come up with excuses for errors and turn them into canon. (Or is that fanon?)

There are so many awesome designs from those games and they did so little with them. The Insecticons, Warpath, Ironhide, the rest of the Dinobots, FoC Megs and so in...
I would buy them all :x :HEADHURTS:

Sadly I think the time has come and gone for that, at least through official channels.

Yes, I had hope while Thrilling 30th because they released FoC Skywarp and Thundercracker but sadly no other new Moldawien/characters.

If it could work for Scattorshot I'd say "yeah, cool", but since it can't I agree that it's error fixing via retcon :)

Seriously ?
It looks very plain/uninspired to me.
Looks like something I could have drawn.

The original mode is way better and really more distinctive..

It's a pretty clever design really. He actually transforms backwards with his chest being made from the back of the turret and the top of the tank forming the arms and the canons going on his back. It's a creative solution that reverses the more common tank transformations. It's still fairly simple, but would make for a good Deluxe.

Papa Sideways bringing the scans, hot off the grill!

I suppose this confirms Shockwave is going to get some love when it comes to hand disruption, seeing as you'll be putting cards into your opponent's hand to discard them. But still, I'm not quite sure how good hand disruption is in this game judging from all the draw we've seen.

The "Transformers Trading Card Game" Facebook group has Wizards of the Coast employees in it. They post spoilers occasionally. This one in particular was posted by a guy named Drew (I think; gotta find his post real quick).

EDIT: Yeah, Drew Nolosco to be specific.
