    Since Ratchet was my first Encore figure, I was really surprised by the collector's card that came with him.
    I had read here that some company was doing a knock off set of all the TFs for @15 dollars a pack, but i really like the card i got.
    As much as I love the pseudo-anime look of DW's artwork on the Reissues, I am old skool when it comes to G1 aspects of my collection.

    why hasn't takara/tomy/hasbro/somebody made decks like those yet?
    and just curious, any idea how to get a translation for the japanese on those encore cards?

    instead of tech specs, jpn transformers have always featured file cards in place of them.

    KA, your new sig is awesome.

    I should have Encore Convoy card somewhere. I'll translate it if there's anything interesting in it.

    I got 2 cards with my MP Megatron.

    Also, I got one of these cards with my Hasbro reissue Hoist. Has anyone else ever got these cards in TFs released in the US?

    I'm pretty sure the botcon stuff comes with cards, and I know the tfcc exclusives come with cards.

    The cards are really the best way of going about it, don't have to cut up the box if you want to keep it, so the box can stay intact, and you don't have a handful of randomly cut cardboard strips lying around.
