Thanks so much for all the hard work!


Hey, no problem, man. I love the game, Transformers and writing so I guess it just kinda falls into place together sometimes! :lol:

(Plus, I have a nasty habit of having an opinion about everything. ;) )

On the Soundwave and blaster set, can you play a game just with that set only or would you need a starter pack?

Thanks to a new article from IGN we have a great breakdown of the new Blaster vs. Soundwave 35th Anniversary Edition Pack from the Transformers Trading Card Game. We also get a awesome images of the retail version cards which are in a more updated art style. And to cap it off, Omnibots! The classic G1 Mail Aways are now joining into the TCG fray.

Check them out below and as always share your thoughts with the Seibertron crew in the forums and stay tuned for the latest in Transformer news!
From the article:
"NOTE: The 35th Anniversary Blaster vs. Soundwave set will be available at SDCC, Gen Con, PAX Unplugged, and then online at Hasbro Pulse after SDCC concludes. The Convention Pack 2019 will be available for in-person purchases at SDCC only, followed online at Hasbro Pulse. The post has been updated for clarification.
A special Transformers: TCG boxed set and 2019 convention pack are coming to San Diego Comic Con this year, and you can get a first look at the cards stats, as well as the (always) excellent Transformers art, right here.

The boxed set celebrates 35 years of transforming tape-decks waging Cybertronian warfare, featuring Autobot communicator Blaster and Decepticon communicator Soundwave, as well as their cassette robot underlings. Check out each card in both their alt and bot modes, as well as their stats, in the slideshow below"

"The boxed set will be available for purchase at "San Diego Comic Con, Gen Con, and PAX Unplugged," while the Convention Pack is only available at SDCC and Pulse following the show.

However, the good news is if you miss your chance at one of the cons or online, Hasbro is releasing a retail version of the boxed set with the exact same stats, but different art. Have a look at the retail version of the Blaster vs. Soundwave 35th Anniversary boxed set below:

Interesting to see they went with RIRFIB. Not that I mind.

Where are our Generations OMNIBOTS! I love those guys! I spent so many years dreaming of owning them and Reflector after getting all of those promotional booklets. I don't think I ever even thought about sending in the robot points to get them. I have no idea why. But I thought a lot about having those guys. It was great to find them at a local toy show complete and in mint condition with instructions and stickers unapplied at a very reasonable price.

Damn! Someone's been working out.

And yeah, I would love to see some updated Omnibot figures. Maybe later in the WFC trilogy if we're lucky. (Along with some Refraktor repaints.)

You can really tell that Blaster’s (and everybody else’s) alt mode art was drawn much more recently. They should’ve thrown in an extra vanishing point or two to make it blend in better :P
