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.

ouch thanks for the update, saved me some futile search time.

As hard as it is to wait, I think patience will save me a fair bit of money. My FLGS has great prices on their games.

Re: How can i getting the TCG Transformers game

My Target order arrived with 1 Starter box. You get the 4 oversized cards. A card with rules. A damage point card that has perforations. And then 20 deck cards x2 for your 40 total cards. Very nice art. Not sure if it's worth C$20 though?

The less valuable cards may find its way to Dollarama just like Pokemon and hockey cards. Once the collectors need to start dumping the many duplicates.

Re: How can i getting the TCG Transformers game

Saw them at target in niagara falls usa yesterday but it didn't seem worth it for the price they were charging.

Re: How can i getting the TCG Transformers game

I just got back from a business trip to the US. I picked up the starter kit and bought some boosters. I wanted to be able to play a 2 player game with my kids. I found it took 9 boosters to have enough to do this. Technically you could do it in 7 but I got a duplicate character and bought two extra boosters on my way out of town. I got it all at Target if anyone lives close to the border.

So when the time comes, I have a Bombshell and a Flamewar to trade...

Re: How can i getting the TCG Transformers game

Thanks for the updates, folks. As much as I don't want to wait, I'm going to bide my time for the Canadian release.

Re: How can i getting the TCG Transformers game

The news forums show an annoucement that we'll be getting the Transformers TCG in December. A bit more of a wait than I'd like but at least it's coming guys!

Re: How can i getting the TCG Transformers game

[Hope it's ok that I'm posting three times in a row, but...]


My FLGS said they'll be getting the game in on December 21st; Autobot Starter and boosters only, no Metroplex Set right away.


However, prices were better than I thought; between $15 and $20 for the starter and around $120 for a box of boosters. Not bad at all in my estimation.
