    I was looking through my junk lately, and I find this binder that had special slots that were perfect for cards of some sort.

    So in the times Armada- Energon, I kept the cards in there, and looking at them, it kind of makes me miss them.....

    Does anyone else miss the cards? Does anyone want to see them return? Personally for the Movie- ROTF- HFTD lines, I could so without the cards. But I wouldn't mind cards with the Generations line.

    I do like them; it's why I like picking up the Takara versions of some stuff because most of them have the cards so it's a nice added bonus.

    More specifically, I miss the cards I threw out without thinking "hey, I might like having these" or never got as I bought the figures loose.

    I totally agree with you. Those cards were great! They had some great art and it was just a nice thing to have.

    They were definitely cool. I'd like to see an insert card styled after the clip-out tech specs from the backs of boxes. I loved collecting those and comparing stats.

    I still have an Armada Jetfire and and an unopened Encore Minibot card pack. So, yeah, it'd be kinda cool to see these again.

    I also loved those cards! They were a very neat addition. Much better than saving the backs of boxes IMO.

    Wow, I got so lost in the Armada- Energon cards, I forgot about the ones that came with Skywarp and Ramjet.... Those holographic cards were neat.

    Yep, the cards are a really nice Takara feature. I guess for us, Energon was that last line to have cards.

    I've also collected the Transformers Trading Cards. Too bad ROTF didn't get the Trading cards like the 2007 Movie did. Armada had a really nice Trading card series as well.

    I'd like the cards to come back and be able to be used with a Transformers CCG so you could add to your pack each time you bought a new figure.

    Yup. I'm a sucker for those cards. It would be nice to get one with every single TF made that was specific to that particular line (not just a generic Prime bio).
