    For me, I can take or leave the Wave 1 packs & the Energon dice. However, of the 6 character cards, I only have Optimus Prime so that would help me fill holes in my collection. The foil battle cards are cool, just wish Energon Axe had been one of the 6 selected.

    Good argument. I also believe this Energon Edition is part of Wizards plan to "make up" for the mistakes from Wave 1... which makes me think... perhaps they improved on the rationale in the Energon Edition packs of Wave1?

    To be honest - I do not want an Energon Edition to come out for every edition of the game... or at least give me a heads up on it! XD

    Having said that - how cool would it bee if the package for Energon Edition for Wave 2 would be in the form of the Enigma of Combination?

    As for the included cards - how about the just give us the Combiners as Titan Character Cards? That would make 5 cards (6 if you really want to include Dreadwing)
    The reprinted Battle Cards could be the team cards - like Aerialbot Formation, Stunticon Swagger, etc. - with new artwork.

    Are there any word about Earthrise I (Wave 5)?

    Energon Edition for every set would definitely be overkill. Maybe instead they do it as a yearly thing and feature some of the best cards from the last few sets

    It's already been stated that Wave 5 will not be the 3rd follow up to Siege, but returning to the IDW'esque them for the game. Earthrise (if that's what it will be called) may be Wave 6 or 7.

    This ... VERY This.

    Sad thing is I haven't got a single booster pack of any wave especially 2 and 4 where the good cards are.

    That sucks. Are you buying boxes or just individual packs?

    I don\'t play the game but I do buy some of the cards for the artwork.  I wish they\'d credit the artists like MTG cards do.

    Seriously. People are complaining because they want a playset of them. Its nice to get one more copy but still just a bit short.

    I'm probably going for the boxes to get chances of building a good deck if not say that Devastator deck or the Soundwave v. Blaster one.

    I wonder if Enigmas in the future will get foil cards. Oh yeah, March or April could be Energon Wave 2: Return of the Combiners.

    April? Maybe as an April Fool's gag. Too soon to do Energon Edition 2.

    I like the original artwork better. The ion cannon and fusion cannon especially seems kind of lazy just showing the weapons without the bots

    I was wondering if you opened any of the individual packs and if you got any good rares or super rares.

    Haven’t opened the packs yet, I have a mostly complete set of wave one, the only cards I’d be searching for are already featured in the set itself.
