Update - Optimal Optimus Joins the Database

I know the updates have slowed down around here, but so have the submissions. Still working on getting some older cards I have scanned, but in the meantime here is a card from possibly my last Power of the Primes purchase...none other than Optimal Optimus himself.

A spin-off of sorts

I've been kicking around the idea of showcasing the various cards/art from the current Transformers TCG from Wizards of the Coast for some time. I thought briefly about adding a sub-section to this site, but as others shared with me I too thought that it would have been a little out of place. So I created a new visual database of sorts called the Transformers TCG Database.


Like with this project, I'll need all the help I can get as I'm a little behind with wave 2 already on retail shelves and wave 3 already announced. This doesn't mean this site is done however. I still have a lot of work to do here and while I've been working on beefing up the toy review blog (Random Toy Review) I've also been working on scanning more bio cards from my own collection.

I'll be honest and say there are times I wonder why I create so much "work" for myself, such as launching another site when it's hard to keep constant updates and content coming for the blogs I already have established...but I always keep coming around to one word as to why I do this. Fun. I hope others find what I do to be entertaining or informative, but most of all I hope others find what I do in my corner of the internet to be fun as well.

While this new project is just getting off the floor, the first update has been posted so head on over to the new site to see what's going on.

Update: Transformers Legends

I spent a better part of my Saturday this weekend opening more Legends toys and scanning the instructions and comics. Still have another batch to scan, then I'll start work on adding a section for the crazy comics that are printed on the reverse side of the instructions. These images have been added to the master Legends section as well.

Wreck-Gar Joins the Fun

There have already been several sightings (and purchases) of one of the last Power of the Primes toys, Wreck-Gar, at Walgreens locations in the US so it come as no surprise of his addition to the Database. Thanks to Facebook user Jim Black for the Nexus version of the card and Benson Yee of BWTF.com for the Alpha Trion version. If you'd like to help, you can submit card images via the official Facebook Group or by click here for more info.

Update! Transformers Power of the Primes

First of all I do apologize for the lengthy lapse in new content being added. While I haven't had as many new submissions (probably from a lack updates), I did finally get the time to scan some cards from my own purchases and get them queued for this update.

The Power of the Primes line may have officially wrapped up, however thanks to the decision of some Hasbro executive to create so many variations of the included character cards...well there is still a lot of content to be added before we can put the PotP section completely to bed.

In this round we have the Autobot fembots, minibots, leaders and a few Dinobots. On the Decepticon front we have the Terrorcons among others Enjoy!




















While working in my office I ran across Combiner Wars Sky Lynx tucked away in the corner, still sealed from when I purchased him on discount at a Ross store. I also noticed the scan of his card I previously had was a little faded, so I scanned the card I had and was able to get a better image, which I've already replaced in the Combiner Wars section.


In my stack of cards to scan I also had the card for X-Transbots' Crackup that I recently opened. Speaking of that, I need to finish editing the photos and writing his review for the toy blog.


I'll try to not take so long with the next update. I am actively opening and photographing just about every TF Legends release that I have so I'll have more scans, including the comics, hopefully for the next update. Stay tuned!
