Transformers Legends Mobile Card Game New Details and Images - Single and Multiplayer Modes, More

By Jack on Saturday, September 01, 2012



New details are surfacing on the Transformes Legends mobile game from ngmoco. The Kotaku have posted some new images showing G1 characters we have not seen yet including: Elite Grimlock, Blaster, Hardshell, Smokescreen, and more. On top of that, thanks to TFW forums member thygriever has posted some details on the game that were presented at PAX Prime this weekend. Get a look at the new mobile card images and the game details after the jump.


Transformers Legends Mobile Card Game Details Presented at PAX Prime:

+ Single player lets you pick a side Autobot or Decepticon to start out your deck. However on the cybertron mission map you can play as either Autobot or Decepticon. The interface for the map and the menu look very slick.

+ You can collect cards for both factions and they can be mixed and matched for multiplayer.

+ Looks like for missions, you can only use the type of card for that faction's missions.

+ You collect cards playing "tap" mini games. Tapping the enemy gives you energon/money, not sure if there's a difference. Or occasionally a card. There is a completion meter on top to show your progress (presumably to repeat a mission to get all the items).

+ Rare cards are basically rare drops, a percentage.

+ He showed me his STACKED deck of cards (well he is the dev!), basically showed me the best cards like my favorite art which was robot mode Grimlock, which looked amazingggg. It seems every transformer has 2 cards, 1 for each mode.

+ When you view your cards, the card image moves based on your tilt to give a cool motion effect. The presentation of the card/art really makes a big difference.

+ You can EQUIP weapons you get to any robot. Basically he showed me his Grimlock had Optimus Prime's powerful rifle, to make him even stronger. Mix and match.

+ You can upgrade all cards. He showed me Grimlock's card when clicked had a bunch of upgrade slots. Not sure what the upgrades were exactly.

+ My biggest concern was the IPA. He told me it was basically more energy (or energon) to play more games. Obviously for a game like this, the money maker is to buy more play time to collect more cards.

+ There's also some kind of "space bridge" function that you can collect something to complete it or buy parts of it. I think he said completing it gives you a rare card.

Via an anonymous source, we have packaged photos of a Platinum Series three pack of the G1 Insecticons. These toys were reissued several years ago exclusively at Toys R Us - largely featuring replacement names due to trademarking issues, something this set corrects. We have no information on pricing or intended time of release, however there's a cross-sell on the box that shows the "Seeker Squadron" of Thrust, Dirge and Ramjet. Click through for the photos, and keep watch for future updates on these sets!
These days, invariably, you will find good condition factory sealed vintage Generation 1 Transformers preserved, immortalized, imprisoned, desecrated (delete as appropriate) in an acrylic display case, with a grade attached. The AFA – or Action Figure Authority – grade toys like Transformers be they factory sealed, opened and unused or even loose.
Planet Iacon has posted images of the next assortment of Kids Logic's 9cm SD minifigures! Largely the assortment is recolors of existing molds - Skywarp, Thundercracker, Soundblaster, and Ultra Magnus are recolors of Starscream, Soundwave, and Optimus Prime. But we also add the Insecticon Kickback to the mix! Keep reading to see the photos! UPDATE! These figures will be available at Toy Soul 2014, a Hong Kong toy convention happening this weekend. Link to Kids Logic's page added for more details!
Gothamist reports that Transformers Generation One will be taken out of circulation on Netflix on January 1st 2015. If you've yet to (re)watch the series and have a Netflix subscription, you've got two weeks to get some friends together and catch it while you can! GI Joe is also on the chopping block, so consider setting aside some time to recreate your weekday afternoons before the turn of the year. Keep reading for the full list of shows and films leaving Netflix next year!
It's that time of year again, time to donate to Toys For Tots. If you are going out shopping between now and Christmas, we are asking all of our readers to take the opportunity to pick up at least one unwrapped toy and drop it off at a local Toys For Tots drop-off location. It can really make a difference in helping those less fortunate.
