Metroplex Deck In Hand - Transformers Trading Card Game - Transformers News - TFW2005
Is rally the city card using the sdcc metroplex box art?
I never understood these type of cards. If its a game, then why are they called \"trading\" cards ? Just sell the complete set as a game. Selling them in packs forcing people to accumulate doubles and triples and trade them off is counterproductive to being able to play the game. Thryre not baseball cards.
My enemies shall fall!!!!! Err.... um... this is all about having fun not winning.
It’s first and foremost a game based on customizing and building a deck. They’ll frequently provide usable pre-constructed decks so that you can buy one thing and go, but if you want you can buy packs of random cards, or single cards from someone else, that you can use to customize the deck.
So the trading card aspect comes in when you go and buy a pack (or 130ish in my case) open them, then trade with other players to get the cards you’re looking for. There are games called LCG or CCG (living card game/customizable card game) where sets are released as one offs without randomization. They are usually built around single concepts per release, but haven’t done as well in the market as the trading types.
It looks nice so I don't care really
Transformers TCG on Instagram: “The METROPLEX DECK is OUT! Our bouncing baby robot that turns into a city is happy, healthy, and ready to crush his opponents!…”
Interesting. I take it tgey are like pokemon cards? Im old school. I used to collect cards way before they had games attached to them. Baseball cards, Garbage Pail Kids, etc.
This is the sales strategy of literally every single tcg game ever.... they only make money when we buy more packs. This comment is complete nonsense
Do sleeves exist for Metroplex?
First things first....respect. Dont be calling other peoples comments nonsense just because you dont agree. Now that we got that out of the way, peep game. Im old school and I know nothing about "trading card games". Back when I used to give a s**t about trading cards, you didnt have no game attached to it. You had sports trading cards, Garbage Pail Kids trading cards, sci fi movie and tv show trading cards, etc. There was no game. If you add a game, and market them as a game, youve killed the whole "trading" aspect. I cant play a game with doubles obviously. I might not even know another person who collects cards to "trade" with. I might have to introduce someone to the "game" on my own. So the whole get doubles buy more packs thing doesnt work. I can collect "trading cards" on my own without a having a person to trade with. But if its a "game" then I need someone who gives a s**t equally about the game to trade my doubles with and play the game with, and that might not be an option. So selling the cards in packs is incredibly stupid in my opinion if theyre marketing them as a game. Its like selling UNO cards in packs and saying collect em all so you can play the game. Thats stupid and a poor marketing strategy.
"I'm old school and admittedly know nothing about card games but let me tell you why they don't make sense and don't work despite there being an entire industry for 20+ years based on them."
I’ve been playing the Metroplex deck against a friend using proxies I printed out over a week ago, and it’s been a whole lot of fun. He’s tough to beat once the whole squad is deployed, but it’s not too hard to disrupt him. Dinobots tear through him though, as does the “Hotwheels Deck” (although that seems to tear through everything atm). He does very well against the popular Insecticon decks however
Yes. Don’t have a link, but there are page sleeves & photo protector sleeves that will fit him.
Got my Metroplex last night at my comic shop. Loving this so far.
Thanks. Do you happen to know the brand? We were searching and didn't see any that size.
Unfortunately no, sorry. I might be able to point you in the right direction tho. Go to YouTube and search “Wreck n Rule Metroplex” and go to the first couple videos they did. They used an oversized sleeve & I *believe* they put a link for it in the description.
If not, just google the card dimensions & then google a card sleeve or photo sleeve that size (or preferably a hair bigger). Hope that helps
Brian from Wreck 'n Rule here!

These are a good size for Metroplex, but you get WAY too many. A bunch of people at our local gaming store ordered the sleeves/top loaders and split them between us.
