    Alongside the trading cards, the tombstone for Edmond Burton is also interesting. I don’t recall seeing it at the end of the film, meaning it is now another known scene that was cut from the Last Knight. Very interesting to me and I’d still love to see that cut.

    And they made full-size swords for the knights of Cybertron? Geez! Hopefully I could get something but I doubt it.

    Was it in TF2007, when Glen was contacting the Airforce? "Simmons, I need a screwdriver!"

    Interesting, it’s nice to finally get a clear view of the cards after 5 years.

    This is kinda weird, but I wish someone mass produced these trading cards, they’re pretty cool imo.

    So there seems to be a lot of cards. Like a card of every single cybertronian before AOE. If someone buys them please post them!

    So, do all the cards have robots on them, or just the ones shown in the picture?

    It's neat to finally see more of them. I think TFWiki has a joke about "That's all we'll see of Loader until the prop auction". It's kind of funny that it's finally happening after all this time. Hopefully a fan gets them, so we can see pictures of all of them (assuming they all have pictures).

    Honestly, this is pretty neat stuff overall. Kind of funny that you can buy the exact same outfit that someone like Anthony Hopkins wore.

    Edit: this definitely isn't all the cards, Arcee and Loader are missing.

    Omg I reverse searched the pics st.ranger’s link gave for a better look but couldn’t find them, thank god for these high def pics.

    Btw where’s Loader? I’m sure most of us here only want those cards for him.

    Has anyone tried emailing the people who operate the auction to get photos of all the cards face-up? It's a completely reasonable request.

    Kind of funny that half the lots from a franchise of battling robots are medieval swords and armor.

    Yeah, that's a good idea.

    Edit: I just sent them a message, requesting photos of each card, for both decks. If you click on the item, there's a button on the right that says "ask the auctioneer a question". Hopefully they respond.

    The flagrant "not giving a shit" the movies had for their own characters is fucking stunning.

    With these movie auctions, I always think, \"oh, nobody will want X, I should be able to snag it for a reasonable pr-\" and then the most obscure props still hit hundreds upon hundreds of dollars.
