    Don't know if this is news but, If you have been buying these at target best pick them up soon, my target just phased out the booster packs.

    Update: went back with a wrapper and they confirmed no longer stocking them.

    Typical Target. "Hey we sold out of this thing really super fast. We'd better not stock any more of them."

    "Can we order a restock on those items that are already clogging the shelves!?"
    "Don't we have twenty-seven cases of those in the warehouse already?"
    "SHIT! ONLY TWENTY-SEVEN CASES?! GET MOAR NOAW!"

    Can't even say it's a step forward without any sort of prizes from their end. Not that I want more unique promos especially since this game's probably still too niche for those promos to spread out enough. At least they're not leaving us hanging but kind of hoping for a set 2 announcement soon. Doesn't have to have any concrete info or even a name. Just knowing it's coming would be nice.

    "And the best part: players will have new cards after the event to add to their collections."

    That'd only be true for people new to the game so not a real incentive.

    I'm trying to build up some friends at work to do a League like group with me. I'll admit I've whaled into the game at over 140 packs opened, so anything I put together for a "constructed" format would probably destroy them. But if we start from a limited pool, and only add packs at the same time, then my whaling won't have had consequence.

    Found a site that's selling Booster Boxes at $89.00/box. Transformers TCG Booster Box. I've never heard of them before, nor know of anyone that has. But at that price and PayPal's buyer's protection backing me up (as well as that site's buyer protection program), I decided to take the plunge.

    That's how much my LGS is selling them for so not totally out of the norm.

    You are lucky then. Most LGS around here are asking $102-$119 for a box of boosters.

    So, I gave in and bought a box of boosters and the metroplex pack off ebay for about $90. I almost picked up the starter game as well, but I was unsure if it is necessary accept for the tokens that mark the points. I have never been into trading card games, but I wanted to get enough to play with my family.

    Any recommendations on where to start?

    Thanks.

    You can use dice, coins, or whatever to track damage. Of the characters in the starter, one's pretty alright (Bumblebee), one basically fits a niche almost better than any other cheap car so far (Red Alert), one's a cheap, if lackluster Optimus, and Ironhide is basically useless. However you do get a handful of staple cards (Flamethrower, Rapid Conversion, Ramming Speed, Leap Into Battle, GRENADE LAUNCHER), so it's not an awful buy. One of the best things about this game so far is that a lot of the staple battle cards (ones that are often universally useful across many different decks) are commons, including the aforementioned Flamethrower, Rapid Conversion, and Leap Into Battle, so getting a booster box will give you plenty of your Force Fields, Brainstorms, Incoming Transmissions, and other very useful cards like that.

    Thanks for all the info. Can't wait to dig in! If nothing else, I love the art. I like the coin method you mentioned.

    Not sure the ages of your kiddos, but we modified the directions from the Optimus set for 2-players. It is an easier version of the game, but we love it. Inferno is OP in this mode though.
