    That’s a clever as hell idea, and that alone makes me consider getting into the game.

    From what I’ve heard, the game seems well received and thought out. I’m curious if this will be a continuous inclusion with the comics, bringing it back old school in a sense of pack ins.

    Honestly this might be the incentive I be needed to actually pick up an issue of this thing. That's pretty cool!!

    ...you know what would be even better?..if retailers actually stocked the trading card game...

    ...i've found exactly one third-depleted box of rise of the combiners boosters buried behind some baseball cards next to the customer-service checkout at target, and those were probably all my own purchases, to boot...nothing ever found elsewhere, not at gamestop, not at other targets, not at wal-mart, not at the local hobby shops...

    Glad it's not another promo. Didn't want to have to buy the issue.

    I've seen plenty of mass retailers carrying the cards. Maybe someone else is snagging them before you get there? I've seen packs everywhere at both targets and Walmarts. Pretty much every comic shop around here also carries them.

    I'd say to ask local shops to order them and bring and empty booster pack to Walmart and Target and see if they are getting more or if they can talk to their supplier. No retailer will turn down money and the worst WM and T could say is "I don't know"

    Worth a shot at least

    If you're looking for it at major retailers and failing, try you local game store. These are stores that carry Magic and Pokemon games (and is probably their main source of income). In particular, if they carry Magic cards, you're golden because they're likely going nto be a Wizards Partner, which means they can get you TF CCG stuff.

    My FLGS brought in boosters and all that when I requested them, and even though it's basically just me and someone else, they're getting in all the CCG promo stuff too as a Wizards partner. You'll also get better local service and maybe even find organized play. (If not, hey, free promo cards - I've been showered with promo cards from them because I've been going to their store for over a decade and he's got nothing better to do with them).

    Marvel packed promos for OverPower in some of its books in 1995 & 1996 but the packs were stapled inside the comic.

    For those interested, apparently issue 8 will also have a booster pack included.

    I went to 4 comic shops in my local area on Tuesday & Wednesday. All 4 were sold out of Transformers # 7. One clerk from 1 of the regional chains that is also affiliated with the company that produces The Tick comic said that he is trying to get more copies for some customers who reserve books there. The owner of the independent comic & guitar shop up the street said he had customers pick up 2 copies to have 1 to open & 1 to keep sealed.

    Found a tweet from David Marriotte from IDW that the booster pack that will come with issue # 8 when it arrives in comic shops on July 3 will be Wave 1.

    Found a copy today of Transformers # 7 with the retailer incentive cover at a local Newbury Comics. They are sold out of # 8 per one of the staff who did an inventory check for me.
