    Being a fan of cardgames in general makes me kinda care about these, but chances are that accessibility will be an issue, so hopefully we're wrong about that.

    Cant say I get it "high end trading card" is not really something I knew was a thing (I guess their will be a few shiny cards?)

    Also if those are a sample I cant say the idea of buying screen caps thrills me.

    Transformers Trading Cards

    Each pack comes with a stick of Micheal Bay gum.
    An explosion of flavor in every bite.

    Well, "high end" probably means expensive. I think it'd be cool if they came with exclusive figures or something, but when it comes to spending money on toys or cards, this fandom probably isn't gonna pick cards over toys unless they become hella trendy like Botshots or whatever, and even then there'd need to be something associated with the cards themselves since they don't look to be part of a game.

    "High End" is a bit of a vague term these days. It could mean anything from glossy stock and foil stamping at $3 a pack all the way to guaranteed autographs and/or movie memorabilia cards in every $50 or higher pack (a Game of Thrones set recently released is an example of this latter variety).
    Really, I think it's a bit late in the game for movie cards to come out, unless they delay them until just before the fourth movie releases.

    Hopefully I'll be able to pick a few of these up, but only if I see them. I won't go hunting for these. :wink:

    Enterplay. Where intercourse and foreplay collide.

    Hahahah, you sir win this thread.


    ... but yeah, I'm gonna mark out pretty hard if these become a regular thing, especially if they're affordable & represent a crapload of characters.

    No Beast Wars, no interest. Well, maybe if animated were included I might give it a gander.

    I will be working as an incentive artist on the set. Sketch cards are a pretty high end market for some. There are some artists who fetch 4 figure numbers for a single card.


    As for the subject matter. Movieverse, Prime and...wait for it...G1!

    I'll only be doing 25 cards and possibly all G1. 5 will be available as artist proofs for 30 all together.

    I'm more interested in the Movieverse characters, especially Shockwave, my favorite Decepticon, but Prime characters could be interesting too... I'll definitely track some of these down!

    What is with that one with Arcee on the thing with her butt in the air. Anyone turned on by that is sad.

    EDIT: Wait, no. Its a parody of that absolutely craptastic scene from ROTF where Megan Fox was working on the motorcycle in the stupidest way possible. That's actually hilarious!

    Little preview sampler from me. These things were a work of love so I'm not here to run and gun. All original one of a kind drawn on card and not traced or transferred. The set is delayed due to the usual approval by various levels for a nice size amount of artwork but I hope soon to hear news.

    I hope these eventually see release too... I would definitely look into collecting a continuity-spanning Transformers trading card set. Wouldn't have to be a game or anything, just trading cards with nice artwork. :)

    The actual cards might be stock pics but these are the actual artwork. Incentives. So if you pull my Devy, for example, no one else will have it unless you sell it.
