    That's a good thought. Although it kind of makes me sad then that it's only coming with two cassettes.

    If you're going by the usual star breakup rules, Soundwave + two Micromaster-sized cards should equal about 25 stars. You put in much more than that and you're either going to have a bunch of weaklings or they're going to have to figure some way to "bypass" the 25-star system with a bunch of cards in your KO pile like what they did with Optimus Maximus and Volcanicus.

    On the plus side, if I'm right it won't cost as much as the aforementioned standalone decks.

    On the black part at the bottom there's a "C" next to a number over a number that "C" denotes common.
    Edit: on the robot mode side

    Makes sense. If they did any more double pip blue/orange/white cards without a star attached Metroplex would just get his swing off way too consistently. Stil though. Double Grimlocks will be able to run x3 mounted missiles and x3 fully loadeds won't it?

    But you have to play this before attacking. So you skip your attack...Thus next turn you are tapped out and your opponent gets to untap. How is this useful?

    One possible scenario:

    1. Play EMP
    2. Play Start Your Engines (via Brainstorm, Mirage, Bumblebee: TL, etc)
    3. Play Turbo Boosters
    4. Attack with 2 characters

    Partially incorrect. Remember, actions and upgrades take place before the attack phase. So you don't get to skip your attack if you some how manage to untap at least one of your characters prior the attack phase.

    One can Brainstorm -> EMP Wave (tap all characters) -> Start Your Engines (flip all bots that are cars into car mode and untap one of them). You can then also attach a Turbo Booster to another car and untap it. Now you have a character (or two if you play TB) getting free shots in to attack. At the end of the turn (since now all character will be tapped again), all character untap and the turn ends.

    If you don't have a Brainstorm + SYE in hand, you can still do EMP Wave and follow up with a Turbo Booster to untap one of your cars. Btw, the trick works outside of car decks too. Instead of Turbo Booster, one uses Ready For Action.

    It's pretty insidious.

    I'd love to see the hooligans both in next year's toyline and in the cardgame with abilities that directly bounced off each other

    Sorry to be a whiner but I wish Ironhide's gun didn't cover up so much of his iconic silhouette. Otherwise it looks to be a really great powerhouse of a card.

    Tom Vasel of The Dice Tower (Board/Card game reviewer) has posted a review and short tutorial on the game.





    Nothing new for most of us but your mileage may vary. Good to see it getting more exposure in the wider gaming community though.
