Mercenaries Come to the Transformers: Trading Card Game

At New York Comic Con, Hasbro revealed the next chapter in the War for Cybertron storyline, Earthrise. A new Mercenary faction is coming to Transformers and you’ll be able to see them first in the Transformers: Trading Card Game.

The siege is over, but the War for Cybertron has just begun. The Autobots and Decepticons have left Cybertron, but their battle rages on as they hurtle through space in pursuit of the Allspark. With unforeseen dangers lurking ahead and the Decepticons closing in from behind, the only way out for the Autobots is to find a way through. Both sides must navigate the perils of space and instantly adapt to battle anywhere in the cosmos. With the highly advanced A.I.R. (Adaptable Interconnection Retrofitter) Locks system, the fighters don’t head to the battlefield — they become it. Bots capable of converting into Modular Battle Stations can A.I.R.-Lock together in custom configurations to fit the needs of battle. As the battle rages through space, success depends on who can best adapt to the battlefield beyond. But it’s not just the battlefield that commands adaptability. Allegiances can shift just as rapidly, with a new Mercenary faction introduced into the Earthrise world alongside the Autobots and Decepticons.

Combiners Take Shape in “Rise of the Combiners” for Transformers Trading Card Game

Transformers Trading Card Game: Rise of the Combiners

This March a new set for Transformers Trading Card Game hits shelves and it’s bringing with it super-sized Transformers in the shape of Combiners! Five cards will combine to create one giant robot. Predaking is just one of the six combiners that will be part of “Rise of the Combiners” set.

A new mechanic in the expansion has players collect the five Transformers that make up the torso, arms, and legs, and then form them together. You’ll need special cards called “Enigma” and players will need all five of the combiners in bot form in their battlefield or KO area. You then activate the enigma card bringing the Transformers together.

In the example released, the Decepticon Predaking, you’d need Torox, Divebomb, Headstrong, Razerclaw, and Rampage in play. Play their Enigma card you you can form Predaking! You can see the character has lots of health, a solid attack rating, and a room for five upgrades but a big robot also equals big target so the defense isn’t all that great.
