    I think you get it through Steam but dont know any of the details. Just seen some youtube videos of someone playing Transformers TCG with it.

    Hmm. I might check it out but I might not have a computer to run it. My laptop doesn't have a great graphics card and probably would have trouble running a Steam game. :(

    @TCJJ I was disappointed with the quality of the character cards too. In addition to what you noticed, it seems the top layer is coming up at edges on some. Idk if I’m describing that right or not. Bottom line don’t shuffle the character cards. Get top loaders for the ones in your deck people. I haven’t played a Wotc game in 20 years so I didn’t know about their card stock problems.

    It’s a fun game and I really hope they start getting behind it with organized play.

    Guys, with Comic Con coming up, how should we promote the game? Demo decks with commons from the packs? Alternate art promos to hand out? No! An exclusive pack you have to pay for that doesn't even have a playset of the cards requiring you to buy three. What's that? Comic-Con exclusives are limit two per person? Sucks to be you. Go to eBay. The game isn't even out yet and there's no online rulebook. Our first priority should be to make limited and exclusive cards! It's all in this chart.

    1. Release convention-exclusive pack before the game comes out
    2. Game releases and people can't obtain the above pack
    3. ?????
    4. Profit!

    Foil cards curving has something to do with exposure to hot temperatures and/or air. Sleeves aren't airtight, but they squeeze the card in place and while they won't prevent curving entirely, it helps.

    @Dinobot Snarl some guys at my lgs said they found something that should fit metroplex. I’ll find out what it is and where they got it.

    What do they need an art director for? Isn't all the art just stolen from the old mobile game and the comics?

    They’re commissioning at least 180 pieces of new art for the next expansion(s).

    Alright. It's a little weird they didn't open with that, but okay.

    Why is that weird? No need to invest in the extra art if the game flops. What they did makes good business sense.

    Seems interesting to collect, but knowing Slipstream and Cliffjumper are already very pricey exclusives takes out a lot of my enthusiasm.

    The cards in that pack are strong, but nothing defining for the game. It’s been roundly decided that it was not the best idea, but it also seems that the game has taken off much stronger than initially expected.

    Good point. I'd probably be interested in them more for the characters and art than the playing, but I might consider picking up a starter pack when Christmas shopping soon to try it out.

    The game plays quite well. I’m glad it has good art, but if that’s all you’re buying it for then you’re leaving out like 3/4ths of the value.
