You can manage & track your card collection and decks once you create an account and login.
shows the three card sizes. For battle cards (and stratagems & small characters cards), any typical TCG sleeve/top loader/binder page will work. These are the same size as MTG or Pokemon cards.
For character cards, Ultimate Guard makes precise fit inner sleeves
. After that, you have some choices. Ultra Pro makes some outer protector sleeves
, and those will fit in the UltraPro top loaders
. UltraPro also makes some 4-Pocket binder pages
that will hold their outer sleeves, but will not hold their top loaders.BCW also makes top loaders
, and those will (barely) fit in the BCW 4-pocket binder pages
. However, UltraPro outer sleeves will not fit in BCW top loaders.
So in short, if you want your top loaders in binder pages, go with BCW. If you want to double-sleeve in a top loader, go UltraPro. In either case, the Ultimate Guard inner sleeves will work.
For the large bots, BCW makes both inner sleeves
and top loaders
. These are both a little big, but are the best readily available option.
Many players use the BCW boxes
that were designed specifically with the Transformers TCG in mind.
There is a Transforers TCG Buy/Sell/Trade group
, and that should usually be your first stop. Additionally, Wreck'n Rule have began writing a buyer's guide. You can find links to each of their guides below. This is an ongoing project of theirs, so not all sets are covered yet.

•Buyer's Guide: Wave 1 RaresThe Transformers TCG Discord
is the main Discord server for the game and has players of all caliber. They use Tabletop Simulator, OCTGN, and webcams to play.The Transformers Trading Card Game
is the largest Facebook group for the game.Turbo Revving Old Punks' Discord
is a bit more casual with a leaning towards Australian timezones.
Teletraan I has a more in depth guide on How to Play Online
, but in short there are three ways: (1)Webcams, with players often using their mobile device as a camera. (2)Using Tabletop Simulator, a 3D simulated tabletop environment that's available through Steam. (3)OCTGN, a free 2D simulated tabletop that will run on lower-end machines.
I have no doubt that there are other sets out there that are fantastic and fun. However, above all else Teletraan I is meant to help people. I feel being able to point and say "I know the people who made these, and I know how well they're play tested" is more helpful and easier for new/returning people than trying to list all other lesser known sets, even if they're good.
Then I'd suggest becoming involved in the Discord server
and start by helping with play testing. Once people get to know you a bit and see that you're contributing to the game, share your card ideas and work with them to fine tune it. That'll get your cards much more traction with the public than they would if you simply posted them to Facebook or something.
To be perfectly honest though, new ideas are not the hard part of developing cards. Everyone has a ton of ideas. What is needed is people playing the game and testing those ideas. Play testers are much more important and valuable than "idea guys". So if you truly want to help, help test.
