Wizards of the Coast and Hasbro announced that “Titan Masters Attack” is the final release for their Transformers Trading Card Game. The game has been going for two years with numerous releases but the company said the “product offerings didn’t meet the expectations of the broader fan base to engage further with the brand” despite the community’s continued growth.
The game was an interesting one taking advantage of some of the unique characters and “gimmicks” created by the toy line and animated shows. While it had a dedicated following it never seemed to break through at the conventions we saw its presence at. Locally for us, the game has had little to no presence at game shops.
The trading card game saw ten retailer releases in total, five booster sets and five starter/deck sets plus convention exclusives.
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.

This March a new set forTransformers 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.
But, it’s not just combiners!
Fan favorite Windblade gets in on the action and is a combiner hunter, helping you take down the giant beasts.
The new set features 46 new charater cards and 81 battle cards.
