    I can't help but think that this game looks a little bit like a beta release; like there are some other card types that they will introduce in a later expansion but they gimped the initial release in order to streamline the first experience and test the waters. When I look at other team based games they usually will have locations or plots or goals of some sort to fight over.

    I have been playing multiple times every week since 2003. The card quality has gone to complete crap in recent years.

    Gotta say I'm not big on all the different sized cards. How do you pack around a deck of cards that are in several different sizes? Not to mention accessories like sleeves and card carrying boxes.

    If this was a boxed product like a living card game then it would seem like it makes more sense..especially since it recycles your deck like a deck builder. As is it seems a little odd as a collectible game.

    I'm not an expert on this, but a lot of what you're describing (and the TF game in general) sounds like the old Highlander card game which, when I was a kid, is kinda how I wanted a TF card game to work. So I'm just as stoked for this now as I was before!

    Just look at this thread from over a year ago:

    Warped Poor Card Stock MTG English Cards Vs. MTG Japanese Cards. Pictures. This is inexcusable. : magicTCG

    They have worked on the coating process in the last few sets. They have acknowledged their were issues and have acknowledged they are working on their production methods to correct it, but they are still making huge mistakes. One of the recent sets didn't even have the internal "blue" layer inside the card stock.

    I don't know, maybe it's just me, but I'm still not too crazy on the choice of card art for this. The character art is fine, but I'd like to see a bit more variety other than "Character does an action pose while explosions happen in the background". It's why I like Shockwave, Chop Shop, and Bombshell's artwork the most (Though it is weird that Shockwave's art removed Grimlock from it's original incarnation). I get that it's an action card game, but I think a bit of character is lost, at least compared to some magic cards. The battle cards aren't much better, considering that a lot of the art is clearly not made for the focus (Handheld Blaster isn't even at the center of the card). I do hope this does well enough for some original artists to get on board, because otherwise we'll never get the Transformers' equivalent of Savage Punch

    Great news. Sadly it will be only available in UK and Ireland, and may also be available in the Netherlands, Denmark, Finland, Sweden, Norway, and Iceland.

    So much for this game. Showed the local players what's what about this and not a one is interested. Two of them are even Transformers fans. My passing interest is quashed.

    Are these out in the states? If so where can I find them? I browsed through the thread but it just looks like pages and pages of arguing... :duel

    Don't let a couple of wet turds make decisions for you. I don't care who is playing this game I'm buying a set
