An Update That's All Over the Board!

It's obviously been awhile since I've posted an update and I apologize for the delay to the contributors that sent in stuff back in January. However, I found the time to do a little work so let's get to it. Today's update contains new card scans from several different lines.

For starters I got a nice batch of Power of the Primes card images from Malin Huffman, a long time fan of Transformers. If I'm not mistaken, Benson Yee of sent Malin my way and I really appreciate the help!

My long time friend, Arkvander, sent me yet another version of Power of the Primes Dreadwind's card.

Finding new Transformers in my neck of the woods has been challenging at best, but I finally found one half of the Duocon Battletrap.

Summer of '17 I purchased this awesome Beast Wars Masterpiece toy from Duron Land (aka Weird Wolf via the TYLP Podcast). Interesting enough, this card has a matte finish while the next figure in the line (Cheetor) had a glossy card.

Sunstreaker is one of my favorite G1 characters so I was ecstatic to finally get a hold of a proper Masterpiece figure. Hated the higher price, but love the toy. The artwork on the card is equally as beautiful.

Benson Yee sent these Transformers Collector's Club 5.0 subscription service tech spec cards some time ago.

While these aren't really cards, I recently found these Cybertron stickers while working in my office. These were originally packed in with the Hasbro toys and I thought they'd make a nice addition to the Database.

Not many of the movie toys included cards, but Jesse Frank Costar found this one and sent the actual card my way.

I know nothing of the 3rd party company, MGS, but again Jesse Frank Costar sent this card over to me as well.

I found a listing for this ToyWorld Bii card on eBay for just a buck and quickly snatched it up.

Last by not least, GTLC previously submitted a few Power of the Prime scans and this time he sent me a few Mastermind Creations scan of Anubis and Calidus. I'll gladly take 3rd party scans anytime!

Transformers Generations: Power of the Primes

The Transformers Bio Card Database continues to grow with you submissions. This time the Database grows with a new section, Power of the Primes. As most collectors are aware by now, Hasbro's latest line of Transformers toys come packaged with a character card, similar to how Combiner Wars and Titans Return. However this time there are 12 possible variations to these cards, one for each Prime.

This alone could make the Power of the Primes section potentially one of the largest sections in the Database. Of course it will take time to capture good scans of these cards so if you've never considered helping out by submitting scans, I need your help more than ever!

So far I have amassed several cards myself. Benson Yee of has also been a huge help early on. In the last few days a new contributor, GTLC. Still a lot of work to do, but we're off to a pretty good start. Take a look!
