In the midst of many excellent Wave 3 card previews across the fandom, Transformers Trading Card Creative Lead Matt Smith explains the team’s decisions regarding the selection of card artwork style and the alignment of character reveals with Siege toy releases.
- The art is very dark with harsh, bright, sometimes neon lights creeping their way through the black. We knew keeping this look was paramount toward representing Siege in our game. While I do enjoy picking out comic art for our battle cards, in order to keep everything on theme we needed to commission it all.
- One rule we tried to keep to with this set was not to spoil anything yet to be announced in the toy line by its release. While we can’t be 100% exhaustive in translating everything over to the TCG, we’re going to try hard to hit that mark. If there is something we are missing by this point there is still a good chance it could show up in the future.
