Takara-Tomy have updated with some new information on the Transformers Heat Scramble Collectible Card Game. There are two pages, the first one details the cards in the starter set and the booster packs. The game’s cards are divided into three types, Units, Episodes and Actions. Units are self explanatory – they are cards based on the characters of the movie series – all the characters of the Movie series, with the main cast getting multiple cards, though every character gets a card for each different mode seen on screen. Episodes are event cards, based on key scenes from the Movie series, such as the Autobots arriving on Earth, or Sam buying his first car. Action cards we assume are actions that can be taken during the game. The cards are ranked in terms of rarity – from rarest to most common, the grades are Super Rare, Rare, Uncommon, and Common. These are denoted on the linked page as SR, R, U and C.
All of the cards have absolutely gorgeous artwork that really captures the spirit of the Movie series, which is where the second page comes in. This page consists of a gallery of the artwork for all 79 cards in the set. Check it out! The artwork is incredible and shows how much work has gone into this side of the set. It’s worth collecting the cards purely for the artwork, in fact!
The cards cover the events and characters of Transformers 2007 and Transformers Revenge of the Fallen. Here is hoping for the first expansion deck to cover Dark of the Moon, and future expansions to cover the other series of the Transformers mythos.
