    Random thing but I love how the Uno set is all DW art. Feels like I've been blasted to the 2000s

    We got Uno Flip from someone a few Christmases ago, and it is fun. A little annoying if people have a bunch of thr flip cards and you have to flip EVERYTHING three or four turns in a row...

    Okay, UNO Flip is somehow the most perfect card game for Transformers that I never realized.
    You can either do two sides or vehicle and robot mode.

    We own so many Uno variants in our household and Flip gets picked the most when my inlaws come over...and I absolutely hate it. My wife hates branded versions of games, so this is perfect payback.

    Stumbled upon the amazon page for it back in December. I was surprised I never heard that it was available on these boards until now. Was a little disappointed though, I always paid $6.99 for all my other uno decks whether in brick and mortar stores or online...marvel uno flip, star wars uno, mandalorian uno. All of them were either at my Walmart and Target stores or on Entertainnent Earth, but this one seemed to be exclusive to Amazon. I couldn\'t find it ANYWHERE else, and boy did I look. I didn\'t appreciate paying $10.99 for this one, but I thought it might be a limited edition and sell out. Next time another Uno pops up on Amazon, I\'m DEFINITELY waiting for a $6.99 price.
    Also, very disappointed in the actual game (never thought I\'d ever say that about an Uno game - I have over 20+ versions and I love them all...except for this one). I think someone should have told Mattel/Hasbro that this uno theme was called TRANSFORMERS...I was looking forward to the flip side ACTUALLY being their TRANSFORMED alt modes and having their alt modes have numbers and minor power cards (plain wild, skip, or reverse cards) and their robot modes have the more major power cards like skip all, draw 4, 6, or 8, or trade hands, etc... instead of every card just being robot mode and the flip sides just being Autobot or Decepticon robots. Very disappointed they phoned this game in. Huge opportunity missed. DEFINITELY NOT worth the $10.99 I paid...not even sure if it\'s worth the standard (OR amazon \"SALE\" price) of $6.99.

    Yeah, that surprised me too, looks like a lot of DWs MTMTE guidebooks art. Honestly pretty refreshing after how bad much of the last 10 years or so of TF comic art has mostly been, and super refreshing that it’s not the lame evergreen designs, which I’d be perfectly happy to never see again.

    I did think a lot of this DW artwork was tied up in legal red tape though, so it’s particularly interesting that it’s being used in a licensed game.

    Dang, I do love Uno Flip and am somewhat fond of puffy character images from this brand. This is a clever tie-in, they may actually get my cash on this one.

    Haha yeah. It’s the first thing I noticed as a big Shockwave fan. Shockwave didn’t make the cut, but Gnaw did ? They also put Scourge but without Cyclonus and Galvatron. Apart from that, not a bad G1 selection.
