    I found the site on Google. I still have all my cards.

    I'd like to see new Transformer cards soon.

    Wow, there's a long walk down memory lane. I remember those, and I also remember running to stores all over Pittsburgh's north side looking for them. Just to have the whole set.........

    Which I did get.

    I've got a bunch of them, but I crossed off all the ones I had on the checklist card, so they're kinda ruined. :(

    Nope, never seen 'em before in my life. But they are pretty cool.

    You mean the character pieces? Yeah, they are pretty tasty, aren't they? That's the box art from the G1 toys. The other pics appear to be screencap equivalents from the cartoon (prints of cels, something like that?).

    Me too, at least for G1. I've still got the collection of all the originals--not sure if it's complete, though, since I've never done a comparison.

    But since those we've seen releases for a G1 playing card deck, Armada trading cards, the 3-D game cards, and the movie cards set which I'm still trying to hunt down a few chase cards for.

    They were the same pics from the box art, and the others were essentially screen caps (likely prints made from the hand-painted cels) from the G1 TV series.

    Well, I would, but it seems unnecessary when you can view quality scans of the entire collection here:

    There's a movie card set for the 1986 animated movie?

    If not, now would be a good time to release them.

    Sorry, should've clarified that that card set was for the 2007 movie.

    There was a sticker collection and accompanying booklet for the animated movie, but no trading cards in the US that I'm aware of. But I'm sure if there were, Alphie here would know.

    The 1985 action card set is really cool.

    There was a sticker that came in each pack of cards.

    I still need a Skywarp sticker to complete my set!!!!

    I was not even aware of these until I bought an almost complete set (minus the color variants) from a local toy show dealer in minty shape all in card pages and protected in a binder for about $5 or so. A steal! Now, if I could only finish the set....anybody wanna trade/sell some? PM me with what ya got!

    We certainly need more Transformers cards. I've got an old G1 TF card game where you had to collect full transformations for each character (a card each for robot, mid-transformation, and alt mode) and the one with the most transformations wins. Still got the price sticker on the box too. :p 
    I quite enjoyed the cards that came with the Beast Wars board game as well.
    Heck, just give us more art cards. No need for games really. Although a decent TF CCG would be nice.
