    Welp, off to find the image and print it on cardstock, because screw paying $30 just for a trading card.

    I think this is a bad move on their part. Every time I get a Loot Crate, I am hugely disappointed. And every time, I think "I like those brands, this should be good" And yet again, disappointment.

    The last Transformers one had pins and a pop out Bumblebee car you can assemble from the box. Ooooh...... The shirts are now made even worse and don't fit comfortably. Thankfully I always use a code to get a discount.

    I'm hoping this just does not start a trend of putting cards in things I don't want.

    At least theres a 50% off code right now. Hey, can one of the items in there be a couple giant-sized card sleeves for this guy and Metroplex?

    Also theres a typo in the article on the end date of when you have to sign up by.

    Just signed up with LOVE50 to get an Omega Card for $12.50

    I've overpaid for other things, but whatever I guess.

    I can confirm that "LOVE50" will make the crate $12.50 shipped. That is much more palatable. You can also cancel the subscription right away so you don't have to remember canceling before the subscription renews.

    *Its $25
    **$13 with the coupon
    ***you're getting a whole lootcrate. Not just a card. Whether or not that crate is worth it is up to you. But you're definitely not "paying $30 for just a trading card".

    The idea of exclusivity on these cards is truely dickish. I get that it can be a good revenue generator to take advantage of completionists but to me, this is a good example of a business outwardly showing that they do in fact care more about sales than they do their customer because you are essentially saying, hey customer, gamble on us. Gamble on getting what you pay for.

    Edit: the above was written more so about blind packs, but the loot crate is an extension of the same issue, just without the gambling aspect.

    Just give me every card made at a price that isn't even the best and is milking the fact that it is from a popular franchise and I will still be a consumer because I can atleast know that I get exactly what I pay for and can fully enjoy their products without feeling exploited JUST for being that much more of a loyal customer/fan of their product or IP.

    From Transformers TCG Facebook:

    Clearing up some misinformation and confusion re: Omega Supreme and Lootcrate.

    1. ***** Everyone who orders the current LootCrate prior to 9PM PST on 2/19 will receive an Omega Supreme - Autobot Defense Base card. It is not a random drop.*****

    2. This is currently the only way Omega Supreme - Autobot Defense Base will made available in North America.

    3. If you are in the EU or APAC regions, the card will be available via alternative means that will be communicated to WPN stores very soon.

    4. The full, unobscured card images are attached here.

    I did a 3 month, I had lootcrate before. Quit when I got a full box of bobs burgers mercy. (I can't stand that voice actor, never watched the show, or archer)

    This was an easy yes.

    Yes. Because this won't enable price gouging in the slightest.

    Good thing I don't buy any WotC cards.

    Yes. Along with three other items. One of which is guaranteed to be a T-shirt. Cash back sites give 4 or 5% cashback. Make sure to use the code LOVE50 to knock the price down. I had to pay tax as well.
