How can i getting the TCG Transformers game

Ive been to all the geek stores around toronto and they all say; "I dont know what your talking about" or "with licencing issues we can't get the Transformers TCG in Canada yet"

So as a Canadian who wants to buy a box. What are my options to get one?

Booster Packs will be sold separately and available for purchase at retailers in the United States beginning on Sept. 28, 2018, and in certain other markets later in 2018.

Re: How can i getting the TCG Transformers game

I'm still looking for this game as well. There have been quite a number of youtube videos showing the cards and gameplay now that its been released in the US. It's been delay in Canada but I'm hoping not for long.


I'm also hoping to find people here to trade with so we can help each other fill in the gaps where we're missing cards.


If you do watch videos on the game, I've noticed quite a few reviewers were down on the game a little when they only played with the starter set - once they play with booster pack additions, however, a lot say the game gets much better and much more interesting. The starter set is rather "basic" but things open up beyond that.

Re: How can i getting the TCG Transformers game

I chatted with one of my guys at a games shop.

He said that big retailers were likely to get the game first (walmarts, toysRus etc...)
Unfortunately a couple of other smaller shops in my area have no plans of distributing this game at this time

When the ball does get rolling I'll be looking for people to trade with as well, going to be hunting for those dinobot cards!

Re: How can i getting the TCG Transformers game

I got some sets from Amazon UK. Didn't realize import duties would be so heavy. Ended up costing me about $60 CAD for each set.

Re: How can i getting the TCG Transformers game

I've thought about ordering online but the costs with shipping and other fees make it too expensive. I'll just wait and get them when they show up.


I'm just hoping to be able to find people looking to trade to help each other complete their sets. I have a feeling this site might be the best for that. (I've had several experiences of purchasing TF figures from members here and it was always a great experience).

Re: How can i getting the TCG Transformers game

Hasbro has delayed the release for markets outside of the US. Canada is officially supposed to get them 1-3 months later.

But if you're close to the border, Gamestop has starters, and some booster packs, and you can get a full box of the boosters online like ebay or Amazon.com for just under $100 USD.

I'm not sure if/how you can dispute the duties, but you're not supposed to be hit with any duty or tarrifs for these. Apparently they can be tariffed if they are considered colletible cards, but this is a TCG so should be considered a card GAME which they're not supposed to tariff/charge duty.
