    Have we been teleported back to the year 2002? Wasn't there an Armada card game from them that was cancelled in 2003?

    Well, I voted yes, but I figure it'll get canceled like the Armada one that they wanted to do after WOC was bought out by Hasbro.

    "How interested would you be in purchasing a Transformers collectible game made by Wizards of the Coast?"

    Note: It says "collectible game" not card game. Here's hoping for a collectible miniatures game like Star Wars... I would be extremely interested in that!

    I'm actually against the idea of a TF CCG. I never liked new games that popped up trying to capitilize on the popularity of something like this. Or games based on something for that matter (well, except the old SW CCG... but I never really had anyone to play against). When you base it on existing stories, you eventually run out of card ideas and the game dies. You need something like Magic, L5R, or Netrunner, where you either don't need a story or have a self-contained story to really give a game longevity.

    I'm not cool for a card game, but I'm very much in for a collectible miniatures game... just more stuff to collect and trade... besides battling out with actual tfs would be so cool. I voted yes with the hopes it's a miniatures game.

    For those of you who don't regularly visit MagicTheGathering.com, these sorts of polls are used for information but sometimes are also precursors to announcements. Might actually happen this time!

    I've been on a MTG decline, but if there's a TF CCG, I'm all for it!!!!!!!!!

    I mean, as long as the rules and art doesn't suck.:) 

    Minis like Wizkids Mechwarrior is meh-ish to me.

    I prefer minis... not a big fan of wizkids mini but star wars are cool cause not only you will draw people who want to play but also draw those who just want to collect the figures.

    They probably have something in mind like the GI Joe Collectible Trading Card Game, which they tried a few years ago. It was a very good game. It was easy to learn, and yet had enough complexities to make it engaging over time. Unfortunately, gamers in general snubbed their nose at it causing many stores to not order it. Wizard never pushed it at the cons because it was a "toy concept" and it ended up only having one expansion pack, the vehicle set Armored Strike.

    I can see the same thing happening here. It'll be cool as hell for Transfans for about 6 months and then it'll be dead. If it's not something hard core gamers will play, WOTC will not support it fully.

    If anyone would be interested, me and a buddy are coming up with rules for a D&D type game, only with Transformers (PM me with any ideas or something). We mainly got this idea, because we use our TFs for our D&D characters.

    Im all for a TF card game. Hopefully its something like Magic, because I love Magic, just not as much as TFs.

    Where's the poll option for "I'd prefer you not tease us with this every three to five years."

    I've been waiting for a collectible card or collectible miniature Transformers line actually worth collecting since the old Transformers Action Cards back in the eighties. But after the last two fiascos with it being announced, nearly completed, then ganked? I'm not going down that path again. I want it, but I won't hope for it until I see it on shelves.

    Bah, save it for consoles, toys, clothing, car accesories. But card games? Last thing I need to throw money at.
