For those of us that have been speculating about the new Transformers Trading Card game we now have a list of what the Autobot Starter Set contains. You can find the list here. While this list does not show us any of the card text (Besides the image of Bumblebee//Brave Warrior) we can have a better idea of what deck structure will look like for the game.

Recently we discovered the video instructions of how to play this game as well as more details about the game from SDCC. Because of this we know that the battle cards are made up of power up items and actions which is reflected in the list. We will post the list below along with the details on the contents of this set. Feel free to speculate on what you think these cards will do on the boards.

Is there going to be a Decepticon starter deck? I would love it if they had released one. :CON: forever!

People have expressed interest in the booster pack on offer at San Diego Comic Con for the new trading card game created by Hasbro and Wizards of the Coast for Transformers (due out at retail in September 2018), so we took out the cards and did a brief pictorial rundown for all to check out - follow us below!

Packaging, front and rear, with nice Slipstream art. Each pack contains 2 character cards (foil, in this case) plus 2 battle cards.

Cardboard inserted to protect the cards.
Image

Pack also includes a promotional gold foil card for the game, with Slipstream silhouette one one side.
Then the two and two cards, as described on packaging!
Image
Image

The two Battle cards feature IDW comics art each: All-out Attack & Tandem Targeting System.
Image

First character card is Slipstream - one side in jet mode, one in robot mode. The robot mode art is foil, and each mode has a different ability.

Specs: Strategic Seeker - Plane - Ranged attack
robot mode ATT 3 HP 13 DEF 1 | alt mode ATT 3 HP 13 DEF 2
Image
Image

Second character card is Cliffjumper - one side in vehicle mode, one in robot mode. The robot mode art is foil, and each mode has a different ability.

Specs: Renegade warrior - Car - Ranged attack
robot mode ATT 5 HP 12 DEF 2 | alt mode ATT 5 HP 12 DEF 2

I noticed the card names are written in Cybertronian on the top right. That's a neat Easter egg right there.

Also, how to these cards feel in hand? Same as magic cards?

I think it would be a mistake not to have one. Its always been about Bots VS Cons. My guess is since the starter decks become available September 28, 2018 they will probably have some time to reveal a Decepticon deck before then.

Looking at most successful card games starter decks often come in pairs so that players can start with different decks. This is a good idea because the point of collectible card games are so that you can customize your deck rather than just play with preset cards. Facing different decks and choosing one that matches the player's style is very important. Especially when people feel they identify with the characters on the cards.

Magic players may remember how attached people got to their Ravnica guilds. The Return to Ravnica set saw record sales and event attendance too. While I doubt any cardgame could match that I think the principal is the same. Sorry if that's a ramble. I could use some sleep haha.

Thanks va'al :-) this looks interesting so far and if it's easy to play the better as you know what they say: easy to learn, difficult to master...wonder if takara would be tempted to make an anime about it :lol:

I think I just want to get some of these for the character cards. I loved Transformers Legends, so it’s really cool to see that artwork return!

We are excited to bring you a spoiler list of the first booster set for the new Transformers Trading Card game. A big thank you to Nicorange for the tip. The notes at the top tell us 40 Character Cards and 81 Battle Cards are available in this upcoming release. This means that there are 121 cards total in this set. According to Hasbro most packs include a rare battle card but only 1 out of every 79 packs will contain a super rare.

There is a decklist for the Autobot Starter set if you would like to compare cards. We also have a pictorial review of the SDCC exclusive card set which gives us a good first look of these cards in hand to get a better idea about their design.

While the only card image included with the set spoiler is of Decepticon Shockwave // Cybertron Commander we now know which characters will be featured. Since this set won't be out until September 28th, 2018 we have lots of time to speculate what they do and hope for more card images with text. Did your favorite characters make it? If not who would you have liked to see?

I'm happy that Sunstorm and the Deluxe Insecticons are getting some love. Although, one has to wonder, where is Venom?

I see a lot of characters from the comics. I am plesantly surprized by Deadlock, Chromia and Sunstorm. I did expect Wheeljack as he was featured in the video from SDCC (Though you already know I am stoked for him being included). I am a little confused by the inclusion of Darkmount. I had always thought Darkmount was a place but hey, if the planet can transform I suppose a fortress can too.

I'd also like to point out there is a list of credits at the bottom of the page that shows us who worked on the game.

Some of my favorite artists from the comics worked on this. Nick Roche, Sara Pitre-Durocher, and Alex Milne to name a few!

I think by Darkmount they mean Straxus, as that is what the Generations toy was called.

So Shockwave will lend himself to a hand control type deck eh? Logical choice

I don't want to burst the bubble here, but it may be the case that those people haven't directly worked on the game, just that their art is featured on the cards! I'm not saying this is for sure, just a heads up.

Yeah that was what I meant, didn't phrase it right I suppose. I would consider contributing artwork working on the game. But yeah, the WotC staff are the ones responsible for developing the actual gameplay and cards.

Thanks to fellow Seibertron user, Nicorange, we have reveals of four new cards for the official Transformers trading card game, after the list of cards present in the sets we previously reported on here, this time showing the images for those cards.

First up we have Sludge of the Dinobot! Or just Dinobot Sludge as Wizards of the Coast have dubbed him.

Image

Next up, we have Jetfire, boasting his Classics toy design.

Image

Here we have the Matrix of Leadership, something all Transformer fans will be familiar with now.

Image

Last up is Nemesis Prime, everyone's favourite black repaint!

Looks like you swapped around Nemesis and Jetfire’s pictures :P. But otherwise these all look neat. Can’t wait to get my hands on them.

Nemesis Prime looks nice! Can't wait to see what Sunstorm and Demolisher will look like.
