I don't buy a lot of the third party stuff (for different reasons), however I love how the majority of the companies produce cards for their releases. MakeToys however is one of the few that doesn't include a bio card with their figures. While on vacation I stumbled across these 6 images that appear to be fan made of what the cards would look like had MakeToys included them. The images are slightly smaller than your standard trading card, but they look fantastic so I thought I'd include these anyhow.
The next onslaught of images come from fellow blogger and frequent contributor to this project, David Aguero. Make sure you give his awesome Transformers blog, Transformers Obsession, some love when you're done here!
It's funny that he should send these two cards as these two are the latest Combiner Wars figures I've picked up, but yet to open. I'll soon be changing my Battle Core Optimus Prime however into a G1 inspired Thunderclash.
Masterpiece G2 Bumble(bee). I'm still waiting for the inevitable Masterpiece Throttlebot Goldbug!
From Goldie Marketing's blind packaged PVC figures and cards, we have the movie version of Optimus Prime. Not sure if this is from series 1 or 2.
I already had a scan of iGear's Medical Specialist, but David provided a cleaner scan. Does anyone miss iGear and their 3rd party Transformer offerings?
Not staying 100% up to date on all the 3rd party offerings, some of these Mastermind Creations are new to me. I first got pics of the Nero Rex card thanks to my friend Danny at TFCon Charlotte last year, but now I have a proper hi-res scan to add to the Database.
I was impressed by ToyWorld very early on with their take on the G1 Throttlebots, but since I haven't bought much of their stuff. Their Dinobots really look impressive and I'm so glad to have these images. I'm not sure the significance of these beige background cards are, but they still feature some great art so why not included them?
The next group of scans comes from Optimal Omega. I probably stay in touch with him the most these days thanks to his great Transformers blog. Make sure to drop by and say hi as he does some great toy reviews with photography that makes me jealous!
I'm glad to have these Masterpiece scans as I am so backlogged in opening so many MP toys. I finally got around just last night to opening Ultra Magnus MP-22 and I think I still have 10+ others to open...and that's just counting what I have in hand. Got to get busy before the mailman comes and brings more!
The last group of scans comes from reader Kevin Gorman. He already had a good many Masterpiece and 3rd party cards scanned and organized in a Dropbox account and was nice enough to share his work with me and now with everyone else.
Always a good day when I get to add more Masterpiece card scans to the Database!
Fans Toys has been putting out some really (expensive) Masterpiece scaled figures and I'm really glad to have some of these represented.
And with that this wraps up the latest update to the Transformers Bio Card Database. A HUGE shout out and thanks to all of the contributors. Without you guys I wouldn't have been able to make this project of mine half of what it is. Until next time, keep the submissions coming!
