Fellow Seibertronians #Sideways# and Nicorange are currently following the slow tease of more information about the Trading Card Game that Wizards of the Coast and Hasbro have been developing for Transformers, and after deck reveals, booster packs, new images and the such, we seem to also have another pre-made deck for the Autobot side - featuring Metroplex!

The deck also features Scamper, Six-Gun, and Slammer, plus some special battle cards to use with this first enormously oversized Titan foil card, and lends itself to speculate that once the Decepticon side is brought into the game we'll be seeing some giant purplesaur too. Check out the image of the deck in packaging below, and let us know what you think!

Well, that looks OP. I don't think they mentioned titan cards in the rules.

Yeah 35 health looks mental, unless he is like 15 / 20 stars or something.

On the deck cycling, i think decks will cycle quickly as you draw when battling. May be more about having a deck full of cards to keep your characters alive whilst waiting for the deck to cycle.

I can't see how many stars metro is, though I think the team in that set at least is just him and his usual crew.

Depending on the actual card size something like a document protector for a full sized sheet of paper will probably work.

They make toploaders for cards this big. But oddly, not for the regular "medium" character cards.

I bet these would work. Though they may be hard to come by.

How do you get Sunstorm from Game Stop? Just ask or do you have to buy a deck with him in it?

Don't quote me on it but it may work like one of those deals where you buy so many boosters and then they give him to you (or maybe it's for participating in a tournament, but I think it's more you buy from them, they give to you)

The more I see this the more I want to play, but the more I lament that I'll probably have no one to play with...

We have an update from GenCon 2018, the gaming convention currently taking place in Indiana, which concerns the Transformers Trading Card Game being developed by Hasbro and Wizards of the Coast: apparently, booster sets and decks have been opened and shown, and are probably for sale at the event, meaning that the cards contained in the packs have been photographed and shared on various platforms, including Imgur. We get to see Optimus Prime, Megatron, Cosmos, Sun Storm (which is apparently an exclusive of some kind), Jetfire in both modes, previously seen cards and assorted Battle Cards, including the SDCC exclusives first shown here.

Check the river of mirrored images below, and let us know what you think of the game so far.

This is shaping up to be quite fun! I wonder why Ramjet appears to be the only character without any effects?

Uh, no, it's definitely blank. You can even see the background behind where the text would be. Plus the other photos from there down appear to be taken by the same person and the text shows up perfectly clear on all of them. Plus plus there's no sign of flash glare on the cards, they appear to be taken under normal room lighting. Plus plus plus that's not the only blank card, the Ironhide, Red Alert, "Primary Laser" and "Armor Plating" cards are also blank.

Ah so ramjet isn't an anomaly then as others are also "vanilla" :-) I wonder if they'll be new versions of them in later sets that have different stats? Assuming the game makes it that far of course
