    Another battle card, and five of the six character cards that were on display at NYCC - Lockdown, Detritus, Deadlock, Octone (triplechanger card), Mudflap (from TFCybertron series). These "Mercenary" characters introduce a new battle feature called "Bounty", which gives them a bonus ability when they KO an opponent.

    And some more cards revealed, including character cards for Tailwind, Sunrunner and Battlemaster Caliburst.

    Three more Battle Cards, and another Battlemaster Character Card - Needler... another of the Actionmaster partners from way back in the 1990s, who came with Actionmaster Bombshell (a UK exclusive Actionmaster).
    We also get to see the breakdown of allegiances in this fourth series, which notes the Mercenaries (a few posts above) are of a third allegiance (as noted by the new allegiance symbol on their cards).
    In the regular cards there are 24 Autobots, 23 Decepticons and 5 Mercenaries (all character cards, including the Micro and Battle Masters). Plus, there are an additional 4 Decepticons with the bonus Trypticon pack, which every master carton has included inside.
    I don't know how retailers would sell the Trypticon pack if they are selling the Booster Packs individually, but when you are buying a box of Booster Packs, at least you are guaranteed to get four character cards (Trypticon, Brunt, Wipeout, Full-Tilt)... and it is good to get Metroplex's rival without having to buy a whole special themed pack this time.

    Character cards Skytread (on a triple-changer type of card) and Apeface (also triple-changer) plus Soundblaster (the black Soundwave we just had released as a 35th anniversary toy).

    Three more Character Cards revealed - Omega Supreme & Jetfire and Springer & Chop Shop.
    Omega Supreme is made up of three cards, similar to the Duocons and Dreadwing. Unfortunately, the artwork on all three Omega Supreme cards (tank, spaceship, base) is all the same artwork, which looks very lazy. And being "rare" Character cards, it is highly unlikely that you'd get all three when buying a box of booster packs.

    Apparently all of the series 4 Character cards have now been revealed, and the full gallery can be seen on the official facebook page here.

    And another previously released card has been removed from official competition gaming. The series two Battle card "Press the Advantage" has been found to be too powerful and discourages the use of Decepticons in competition gaming, so it has been retired. This is the second Battle card to be retired from competition gaming.

    Apparently all of the fourth series Battle Cards have been revealed, with one more Secret Action card and two more regular cards.

    The fourth series comes out in November some time.
