    Anyone else prefer when Combiners were just mad-science developed by Shockwave, and not mystic mumbo jumbo (with a side of the power of heart) ?

    The individual bot modes are weak as expected, but dang you start 6 wide here! I dig the enigma here. I'm wondering if swap missions, rapid conversion, and some others will help me swing with the stronger scrapper, scavenger, and mixmaster more while protecting the other members. It's also interesting that the set will come with 5 specific battle cards, hopefully it's stuff that adds to survivability/tower building. Looking forward to it!

    Technically, it's whatever you want it to be. It's a TCG, with no real connection to any outside fiction.

    And I re-read Scrapper's card making this comment seem silly. Glad I was right that this "rare" combiner is in a starter.

    So height counter at the start of the game +1
    +1 for each Constructicon attacking in vehicle mode except Scrapper if you scrap a card
    +1 for each Constructicon KOed if Scrapper is on the Battlefield.

    So definitely need cards to build your hand to scrap. And you only get height if you attack in vehicle but need bot modes to combine. This is going to take some thought...

    ...they should have done a three-part omega supreme to counter devastator instead of that superfluous optimus maximus abomination: they could have given him unfolding standard-sized character cards for his tank, rocket, and base components...

    So what's on the other side of the 6 cards that form Dev? It can't be the separate bots can it? Don't they have their own two sided cards?

    All combiner components are smaller than normal cards that fold out to become the component.

    That's exactly what's on the other side, the 6 Constructicons that form Devastator. Odd, have you not seen how the combiner cards are set up and work? There's been several posts now ...

    The smaller character cards look like crap when next to non-combiners. Should have gone with normal sized character cards and when combined, swap them out with a Metroplex-sized card. Include all the combined forms in the Starter Pack. Players just can't use them until they get the character cards.

    This is the best combined mode art I've seen. There isn't any weird off colored cards and everything actually lines up so it actually looks like a solid combined image when you put all the cards together.

    Also I wish it was coming out on March 6th instead of the 29th... Not really a big deal would just be nice if I could actually get this set on my birthday... even though I don't actually want to celebrate getting older anymore... I still like gifts though... So I'm going to celebrate pretending to turn 27... Last year I pretended to turn 28... I'm aging backwards I tell you... BACKWARDS!

    Can't say I agree. They look pretty much the same, except more compact.

    Yeesh, even in the TCG some of you are still obsessed with size :p  :lol

    If someone in this subforum ends up posting the Sunbow Animation Scale image that ****ing HAUNTS the 3rd Party Discussion threads to complain about card sizes, I may have to stop coming here.
