Not sure what I think about this. The concept is kind of cool, but I guess 3D trading card gimmicks never quite look right. It's interesting how many of these robots aren't movie characters, and don't fit the movie aethetic -- or a G1 aesthetic, save for Jetfire perhaps. It's interesting. I'd like to see higher-res images, and perhaps some design art for the robots.
If it plays as well as the Pirates 3D card game, this should be a lot of fun.
I think this could be cool but I doubt it will last as long as Yu-Gi-Oh or Pokemon has. Its just another tie-in in my eyes. One that I will be picking up.
looks a bit odd to me... wreckage looks nothing like his toy counterpart
Looks cool. My friend was raving about their pirates games, so hopefully this is fun as that. Looks like cliffjumper has Alternator Swerve's head?
I -wish- anyone around here played Pirates. I stopped buying it mostly because I found out I was the only one.
Will probably nab at least a box of this game.
What the heck? For "Cliffjumper" they are using a red version of Movie Jazz's Pontiac body...okay, fair enough..... but they slapped on a head from Alternators Swerve. Weird. Mix n' match Transformers, I guess.
Anyway, easy pass for me. But I'm sure some folks will dig 'em (especially people who have played previous games like this).
EDIT: Sorry, just saw Venksta already mentioned CJ's head.
protoform Bumblebee, i smell a interesting figure coming on, although by Protoform they might mean 70s Bumblebee and i wonder iff these will be made into toys?
Oh gees...not another card-battle game! These things are lower than D&D.
wow, blech ~ not my thing, and those "models" are pretty bad
Wonder if "Dropkick" is the "deluxe Low-Rider truck" from the merch list?
...They still look hideous. WAY to much sacrificed to get them to 'Transform'. The other card based minis games dont have to worry about forcing robot modes so they look better.
Well, i like them. I still have some Pokemon, Magic, Yu-gi-Oh cards.^^
Looks cute. XD I wish some of those characters get their own toys. Especially Jetfire.
this looks like rubbish.
Not really interested in this, but I don't think the "robots" look so bad.
i really hope that they do become toyd, but i think they will
Did any one download the rules, I want to see if the game is able to be played with past characters????...
I'll eat my hat if it isn't.
Funny, though, that they named the NON-Topkick truck Dropkick...
The rules download is coming soon.....lol.
I dont paticularly care about how good or bad the the card figures look, my plan is to use the movie line voyager/deluxe toys of the characters included in the set and simply scale up the measurements used for the game appropriatly.
So here to hoping that some of those characters do get movie line none movie appearing toys and that toys like swindle make it into the second set of cards.
Might even do myself up a nice 6'x6' gaming table of a city block or two I can play on.
This looks like crap! Collectable? There not worth much when you punch them out then are they? My concept was better. bummer with the game, good idea but poorly done.
