Has anyone been able to get the larger card sleeves in any brick and mortar store around Australia? My wife got me the metroplex set and some boosters and I want something I can use to protect them before opening them. I have kept my Dragonball cards in 9 pocket sleeves and love the visual eye candy they provide but that does not seem to be an option with the transformers character cards...

The ultra pro 4 pocket pages for the normal character cards are best and may be found in some gaming stores or ask and the may special order in otherwise eBay is your best bet 10 pages for $8 or so

And for metroplex just a Ultra Pro one page protector although it doesnít fit nice

They really donít like to keep Things simple do they? At least they should be easier to store as they are regular size cards. Too bad if you want to display them as a combined though, no way theyíll ever make a sleeve for that!

I think it is a novel way to utilise the combining feature, plenty of storage solutions out there just here in this backwater country no stores stock the stuff if it was America you could walk into any LCS for a full range or protection products

Some people have been complained about the smaller character card size and saying the should of been the same size As previous but then your combined form will be massive.

Game play will be interesting

Is there an actual competitive scene for this anywhere? I know a local card store had a few rounds of this going pre metroplex but attendance was so poor they canned it.

I have not even opened any of the packs or metroplex set the wife bought me for Xmas and I wonít until I can either be bothered buying the oversized sleeves. I donít have the time or energy to try and get into another card game, normanyone to play against.

The folding element of the combiners worries me, as that will create a point of weakness on the cards - the more you fold a piece of paper or card, the sooner it will actually separate along that fold like perforated paper. That said, it is a nice way of showing the three modes of the combiners though.


Not sure if they tweeted this as well, but the combination requires an sixth Enigma card to be played, and just at the right time (when all five bots are present in robot mode).



I think if WOTC are creating uniquely shaped cards or combinations in any of their card games, they should be the ones producing storage items (like sleeves) that can accommodate them. Like ones that are specifically sized for the character and Metroplex cards, and a five slot sleeve for the Combiner cards, if one wanted to store them in that way, so that you can see all three modes of each character.
