    The Transformers TCG is set to release a new Bumblebee vs. Megatron starter set soon, and here's a look at Megatron!

    He gets Bold 1 in vehicle form, and adds +1 attack for the turn when upgraded in bot mode!

    And his opponent? Check my twitter feed for a look at Bumblebee!

    Starscream is now up on reddit!

    Huh, guess Megs demoted himself from Leader for some reason? Which is double weird since he has tyrant right in his subtitle.

    Hmmmm.

    That set now really looks like an easy pass for me.

    I can see playing the Windblade and Megatron (though, as already noted, why no Leader?) casually. Not a fan of the Bumblebee. Hate the Starscream.

    Watch the set come with something like Energon Axe, Fusion Cannon of Megatron, or Agility of Bumbulebee to change the "Meh" into a "Must Buy".

    Sidebar: I have 6 Ion Blaster of Optimus Prime (3 for trade) but only 1 Agility of Bumblebee.

    Getting back on topic, I am liking this cheaper Megatron who I can run with Thrust. Put 1 Grenade Launcher on Megatron and 1 on Thrust, use Thrust's ability to buff Megatron and swing with a 15 attack. You're welcome.

    Might also be wise to remember who this set was designed for. This was designed for people who are just getting into the game. Simple and cheap characters with name recognition is the best way to entice people I to the game.

    Absolutely. It's a great sign for the game's health that WotC is doubling down on reaching the Newbie. It's a fun game. Simple-ish to start, with tons of depth. That said, WotC should recognize that unless they sharpen "entry level" characters or offer "got to have" battle cards, there are collectors like me that stop short of a "got to have them all" philosophy and won't pay for a set like this.

    Yes a Helicopter, for animated.

    Well they might do TR Megatron where he triple changed.

    I'd rather have a chance a G2 Megatron.

    Totally agree. Or even at the very least; just a different style of tank.
