BWTF.com Provider Update: Titans Return & Masterpiece

Most in the fandom should be aware of the awesome Transformers resource website, BWTF.com. If you aren't by some chance, stop reading right now and go take a look at the awesome site.

Benson Yee shoot me a few emails with some updated Titans Return card scans some time ago that got buried in my email. He also recently came through with some other things so stay tuned for the next update!

The Titans Return category is nicely filling up and we're near completion. A big thanks to everyone that has sent in scans for this category as I couldn't have done it all on my own.

He was also gracious enough to send over our first Masterpiece Beast Wars card scans. That reminds me I need to dig out my Optimus Primal MP card and get it scanned as well.

Reader Submissions: Titans Return and 3rd Party

The Transformers Bio Card Database continues to truck on with a few more reader submissions. Remember, if you have cards of something that you don't see in one of the many different catagories, you can always send us an email or send us a message via our Facebook page. You WILL receive credit for whatever you send that we can use.

Benson Yee from BWTF.com was nice enough to end me the scans of the NYCC excusive Titans Return Grostusque and Scorponok. I missed out on the opportunity to grab this toy so I really appreciate the scans.




Next up we have a few 3rd party submissions by reader Simon Vincent, aka Azreal. He noticed the 3rd party section of the Database is lacking and generously sent over some iGear scans and a FansToy scan of Scoria. Thank you so much for the help!

Transformers Legends

For years many of the Transformers toys from Takara (Tomy) included small trading card sized tech specs (bio cards), but with Combiner Wars and then Titans Return, the tables were swapped and the Hasbro toys were the ones that came packaged with cards.

Takara Tomy's version of Titans Return, Legends, while missing actual cards the instruction sheets at least mimmick the look of a card. Even though these aren't cards, I'm going to give Legends its on section here in the Database...because I can! Plus the artwork is just too nice not to share.

I have imported nearly every Legends release, though I still haven't opened them all. I will be updating this section as I go along. I hope you enjoy the ride!

Botcon 2016 Flash Sentry



The (now defunct) Official Transformers Collector's Club offered Golden Ticket packages to attendees and one of the perks was an exclusive toy. Limited to just 110 pieces, this translucent purple "Reflector" toy, based on the Legends Shockwave mold, is something that I didn't know existed until Benson from BWTF.com send me this scan for the Database.

Sonic Drive-In: Wacky Packs featuring Transformers the Last Knight



The summer is full of blockbuster movies...and then there is what seems the semi-annual live action Transformers movie. With large summer movies comes licensing and promotions. Sonic Drive-In restaurants in the US were offering foil sticker packs in their Wacky Pack kids meals. The packs came in 8 different varietys and each pack contained 6 stickers.

I don't know how many stickers are in the set, but it appears most of the characters have one silver foil sticker and several white background stickers. I'm not a fan of the live action movies or the designs of the characters...but I figured some people may get a kick out of these.

Thanks goes out to lmb3.net for all of the images.
