Car Robots (and Takara Beast Wars) scans added

What Transformers fan was excited when it was announced that vehicular Transformers were least in Japan at the time. I imported just about everything from this series. I've just got to find the rest of the cards.

I opted to buy the JRX giftset so I originally didn't have the cards from these individual releases. As you can see I'm still missing J-Seven C-013's card.

As with JRX, I too skipped the individual releases of the Build Team and purchased the Build King giftset. I'm not even sure how I got this card of Build Typhoon!

Of course the Destrongers in the series were still animal based, but at least Takara chose some of the better Beast Wars toys to repaint for the Car Robots series. Guildo may have a stupid name, but I love his new color scheme.

And before I forget, one more new original Beast Wars card of the crazy, yet loyal Inferno!

2002 Cards Inc.

I'm told what I have here is called the Generation One Preview set from Cards Inc. The cards have a 2002 copyright on them. Haven't been able to find out much about them, but a new section has been added to the Trading Card category for Cards Inc.

The front of the cards feature foil, thus making it hard to get a good scan. Overall this is a decent set, but nothing I'd go out of my way to obtain. I don't even remember where I picked these up or much I spent on them. If you know more about this set or Cards Inc. in general I welcome your comments.

RID Tiny Titans Series 3

Lewis M. Brooks from strikes again, this time with scans of the upcoming series 3 RID Tiny Titans! Just as with past series', the characters selected are just the new Robots in Disguise characters. RID, G1 and Beast Wars are all represented in some fashion in this series.

Staying with the RID theme however, we have 5 new entries - 2 Autobot and 3 Decepticon. Personally I'm really digging the Decepticons...even Springload!



The G1 cast has a nice mix of characters, even if it is Autobot heavy. We get another G1 Optimus Prime, however this time he is sporting his Energon Axe as seen in classic More than Meets the Eye TV episodes. What really caught me by surprise was the inclusion of two of three Monsterbots. Apparently the name Doublecross is yet the latest Transformers name casualty, though for one I really like the substitute name Hasbro came up with. Twinferno...has a nice ring to it and it also matches the character quite well. Rounding out G1 is the lone Decepticon, Shockwave.




The lone Beast Wars representative is none other than Megatron in his first form. Love the art work, too bad the little PVC toy sucks.

Say what you will about these releases, I'm digging them for the cards if nothing else. The toys are very hit and miss and I encourage you to read Mark's review of each series of Tiny Titans. Personally I'm just buying what I like first and selling the figures. Because I have a weakness for trading cards I may end up breaking down and buying more and try to complete each series. Until then, thanks for checking out the Database!
