    Just to exorcise my inner letter substituter, it's actually "REVEALS A ROBOT MODE" they missed the "S".:p

    My Rodimus had the first Optimus card (the dead Optimus)... so maybe not.
    (technically, it is the 1st wave for Commander class, even if there is only one wave)

    I wonder if all Ark toys will come with that particular Ark Destiny card, since it explains the purpose of that toy.

    And as I had noted in the T-Wrecks news topic - it didn't have a Destiny card (didn't even have the special flap for one), so maybe the Destiny cards are only in the regular retail toys?

    It's possible it may still be randomly allocated as one recent official gallery pic seems to show a Prime card alongside Ark & Mainframe.

    Hmmm... I guess the Ark is so easy to transform that the photographer had to rip off the knee parts to fulfill his quota of "f**k something up when taking official product shots" :D :D :D

    Curious theory... emgo316 just reviewed Rodimus and got a wave 1 dinobot card... I'd need more than 2 data points to say for certain this was the case for all Rodimus figures though. Really hope this just applies to him and the other wave 3 toys get a "wave 3" card... (didn't someone say their Ark came with a wave 1 card? Well, I guess I'm ok since the Ark is also technically a wave 1 as well...)

    Only 2 Kingdom figs for me so far: first Warpath and now Huffer, got the Ark with each of them. Might actually stick the sticker part of one elsewhere to show one destiny in my TF card album. Hoping to get a few figs from Wave 3 and just hope to get Megatron/Galvatron with those. Otherwise I just want an Optimus card from one or both of the previous waves.

    Since this thread is pretty slow, how about sharing opinions on the "different destiny card included in each toy" gimmick.

    I think it's been a mixed bag.

    Pros:
    Unique alternate storylines.
    Exciting "which card did I get?" Thrill with each toy purchase.
    Sticker AND card with every toy!

    Cons:
    Limited number of characters on cards.
    Cards not tied to specific toys. Could buy 7 toys in a wave and get 7 of the same card.
    Not advertised AT ALL on packaging. Some reviewers don't even know there is a card under the sticker and assume cards are the same across waves.
    Difficult purchasing on 2ndary market due to seller not peeling sticker to show card underneath. Simple small change to sticker could have indicated destiny beneath, like "wave #" or something.

    Now that I write it out, despite wanting to collect all the cards, I can only give this concept a 4 out if 10. Lack of advertising for the concept plus difficulty in collecting pretty much doom it.

    So I got all of wave 1, then starting with wave 2 I only got Megatron and Prime twice, and I'm only picking up one or two more figures this wave, so I suppose I'll have to trade/buy.

    I'm selling this group of cards over in Junkion exchange if anyone is still in search of some of these. The destinies are specified in the sales thread.

    Per the Tigatron review, Wave 4 contains a Unicron card, though the Cybertronian isn't fully visible. This explains the 5 characters/16 cards discrepancy.

    2 more cards from wave 4:
    00 OP card3.jpg 00 BA card3.jpg

    Prime was expected to turn into Nemesis. BA continues the "Unicron corruption" theme.

    What will Megatron get for fate 3? We already have Galvatron, so all I can think of is he either becomes an Autobot, or becomes leader of Cybertron...

    I've been trying to come up with what 3 "categories" the destinies fall into... Here’s my best guess. Feel free to offer alternative suggestions.

    1) G1 / "good ending"
    Ark 1984
    Op leads cybertron (post season 3)
    Galvatron
    DB becomes Maximal
    BA becomes Maximal

    2) "bad ending"
    Nemesis ark
    Op dies (pre-earth)
    Megs gladiator
    DB leads preds/Maximals
    BA leads preds

    3) "alt / way out there ending"
    Ark transforms
    Nemesis prime
    (3rd Megatron)
    Dinomus
    Darkarachnia

    I think you're in the Ball Park but rather than "G1" the Good Endings are all Positive outcomes for the character not necessarily G1 Canon.
    I'd categorise them as Good/Positive Outcome, Bad/Negative outcome, and Different/What If alternative outcome, and that outcomes in the same category aren't necessarily in-continuity/canon with each other, so my take would be:

    The Good
    Ark 1984
    Op leads cybertron (post season 3)
    Megs gladiator/(3rd Megatron)*
    DB becomes Maximal
    BA becomes Maximal

    The Bad
    Dark Ark
    Op dies (pre-earth)
    Galvatron
    Dinomus
    Darkarachnia

    The "Different"
    Ark transforms
    Nemesis prime
    Megs gladiator/(3rd Megatron)*
    DB leads preds/Maximals
    BA leads preds

    The asterisking* of Megs fate is because not knowing what his Third Fate is, it could be worse than becoming Galvatron (if he gets a "Death" fate like Op's), or a better one than him returning to the Gladiator Pits (which could be read as good as it could imply he gives up leading the Decepticons, or a Bad/Doomed Fate if it means he's being returned to the Gladiator Pits thru some kind of repeating time loop). I'm leaning towards that being his "Different/What If" fate due to, as you can tell from my recategorising of the Dinobot & BA fates, my feeling enslavement by Unicron is a fate worse than death type deal (and with both DB & BA being more morally-ambiguous/talked/won around to good types either of their leaderships of the Preds could lead to a more positive outcome than being a servant of the Chaos Bringer).
    I am surprised that none of Dinobot's fates are "Nobly sacrifices his life in battle", are there definitely only three fates per character due?

    I hope there's only 3 per character... collecting all these things is a royal pain

    I went to look at the Official site for something else and...
    Screen Shot 2021-09-12 at 01.26.13.png
    ...so, yeah, 3 Fates per character BUT that then throws up a new question!

    Which is THIS is the officially stated total number of cards:
    Screen Shot 2021-09-12 at 01.30.04.png
    5 threes equals 15, so who gets, or what is, the Extra Fate on, let's call it Mystery Card 16?!
