While i do like this set, I feel like $200 is a rather large price tag.

Well, considering how much I've seen just Slipstream go for online, I'm actually considering this.

And now I'm wondering if next year will bring us a similar set with new artwork for Volcanicus.

I'd have much rather seen this be half the price with the wave 1 boosters left out. It makes it feel like one product going for two audiences that each only really need half of what's in the set.

Greetings Seibertronians! For fans of Wizards of the Coast's Official Transformers Trading Card Game, we bring you some big news! Wave 5 of the TCG has been revealed to be called Titan Masters Attack, seemingly based off the Titans Returns line of the Prime Wars Trilogy. The news was found via a pre-order listing found on amazon.com.

This is what the product description has to say about it.

Amazon wrote:Titan Master Characters: Mix and match heads and bodies to customize Titan Masters to fit your playstyle.
The Wreckers: The fan-favorite Autobot special-forces team make their debut in Titan Masters Attack. Led by Sergeant Kup, the Wreckers get the toughest jobs done, no matter what the cost.
Stratagem Cards: This completely new card type lets players customize characters on their team.
Fortress Maximus: Every sealed Titan Masters Attack booster display includes a Fortress Maximus Titan pack.


As you can also see from the booster box art, a version of Power master Optimus Prime may also appear in the set. The set is due to launch April 17th 2020

What do you think we'll see in this set? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

Not the theme I was expecting but should be fun to collect. Couldn't care less about the gameplay at this point, looks like this is at least two new mechanics to learn. I'd be ok with not having new game stuff every wave, but maybe that's not what the card game bros want.

I wouldn't necessarily rule it out at this point. With Apeface in Siege, we are likely to see Snapdragon soon, so that would be at least 1 And if previous TCG reveals of a mercenary faction turn out true, some more Titan Masters could be a possibility, I'll be interested to see who is in the decks and whether they are all from Titans Return or if there are any new possibilities.

I'm still holding out hope we might get the Takara only molds for the Headmaster characters.

Greetings Seibertronians! Following on from last week's reveal about Wave 5 of Wizards of the Coast's Official Transformers Trading Card Game Wave 5 expansion, the company have followed up with revealing the special cards they'll be giving to stores that sign up through their Wizards Event Reporter service to host launch events for the expansion. The reveal was made on the Wizards Play Network.

These include 25 copies of a character card that you will not be in the booster packs when they are available. That character is Titan Master Arcana, who in the TCG is aligned with the Decepticons by the looks of things! This could be a nod to Brainstorms status as a Decepticon double agent, as revealed during the run of IDWs Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye by James Roberts.

Image

Stores will also get 15 sets of the three card combiner Tidal Wave, allowing you to amass your own dark fleet. Unlike Arcana, you can score Tidal Wave from booster packs of Titan Masters Attack.

Image

The participating stores will also get two Titan Masters Attack posters to help advertise the event.

These are to help stores host their own casual launch parties and be used as give aways or prizes to support the trading card game.

What do you think of these reveals? Are you excited to get your hands on more of this expansion? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

The core of the magic damage is the system,i have talked about Springer4,i see Cosmo as an alternative to him.

I learnt than the press is banned but not the espionage?They have mentioned the Battitude...They are certainly LYING,they certainly KNOW the right reference IS the espionage(Better with anti bold character who are decepticons for no reason obyiously).Second time i say it by the the way.The alternative is the focusF,no other choice now.I will admit that these TWO cards are very dominants.

This game won't last long or shouldn't.Goodbye.

I think the game is doing well enough, though the competitive scene will be hurt by the covid crisis.

Fans of the Transformers Trading Card Game from Wizards of the Coast have bad news to wake up to this Monday morning, as a post on the game's official website reveals that the recently released Titan Masters Attack wave was the game's last. To put it another way while borrowing a classic "Furmanism", the Transformers TCG is over - finished! The text of the news release and the accompanying image posted on the game's Facebook page may be seen below.

TITAN MASTERS ATTACK IS THE TRANSFORMERS TCG FINAL RELEASE
For over two years, Wizards of the Coast has worked to create a great action TCG brand with the Transformers TCG. While the retailer and player community continued to grow, our product offerings didn’t meet the expectations of the broader fan base to engage further with the brand. Additionally, the current global situation posed by the COVID-19 pandemic presented additional hurdles. As such, Titan Masters Attack released on May 29, is the game’s final TCG release.

We are informing our players and retailers so they can make the best decisions regarding event participation and product ordering. The Transformers TCG team wishes to recognize the tremendous effort that fans and retailers put into building a great community.

“The Transformers TCG was truly a labor of love for the Wizards team, and we saw that enthusiasm and love echoed by players across the world,” said Drew Nolosco, Wizards of the Coast Global Brand Manager. “We are grateful to our fans, content creators, retailers, and distributors for the enthusiasm they brought to the game. The greater Transformers TCG fan community is perhaps the best TCG community I’ve had the privilege of working with.”

‘Til all are one.

To editorialize for a moment, as a collector of the product that appreciated the art and generally enjoys trading cards on their own, I'll be a little sad to see it go. While I wasn't active in actually playing the game, those that were tell me it was a really great and well crafted game. It seems anything that isn't toys has a hard time making headway with us Transformers fans, but that's just what I think, let us know what you think by replying to this post on our Energon Pub Forums.

If no one buy and no one play, a TCG have no choice but to die. A bit sad for the few players though.

I remember the Sailor Moon TCG that I used to play and paid a few hundreds of dollars for... It only lasted 2 expansions and I played only with 3 other friends at the time. I still have the cards to this day.

I didn't personally collected those cards,but I share my condolances for those who did.It's sad to see it go.
It would been neat to see the game progress to a point where they could create orginal art for the cards.



I didn't study this game rules throughly,so correct me if I am wrong,but this game plays just like Magic the Gathering or it's different?

I never got to play the game sadly, but I have been picking up the cards. the artwork and styling of the cards has been great. I can see that the game would be fun though, I have just never had anyone in my area interested in playing. Yet another transformers franchise cancelled before it's time.

Goodnight, sweet prince, we hardly knew ye.

It had it's own rules so played completely different and also did have original art in places (like for example, a lot of character art for the mercenary faction)
