This being a white card with no pre evos feels a bit odd, makes me feel like Clockmon 2010/11/12 is meant to be its own thing after all.

Least it's amusing in that it can evolve to Sistermon Awakened due to being lv4 white.

Now to wonder if Old Clock Shop Man shows up since he'd be the first Digimon to be a Tamer...in the same set the first Tamer to be a Digimon comes.

This Clockmon is extremely beautiful and majestic. It really looks like a legendary artifact. It's going to look so pretty in foil.

I've always found it odd how there's a fully mechanical Clockmon and a jack-in-the-box esque puppet Clockmon.

Is this considered a separate Clockmon?

I know it has different-colored clock hands, but I just assumed it was a feature of Clockmon to be able to put itself inside, since you can see it's winding key on top of this one and on the back of the regular puppet. (thus it just folds in)

Is how I interpreted it, anyway.

About the color of this card, I assume it's so that The Clock Shop man can be the one to use it, since it's effect seems to be a reference to giving Xros Loaders (brings out cards of different colors, like how it gives a blank one that the Hunter makes a colorful by accepting).

(Hunters being time-themed keeps being a big question mark for me. Is it just due to the fact it has the crossover episodes featuring the protagonists? And yet Quartzmon is also a reference to time itself, it feels underplayed in the show thematically).

Nice. The art makes it look magnificent. Thanks for the artist. And it makes the card, the Clockmon feels more legendary in the set, as it is in the story.

From the last Digimon Journal, they put this Clockmon and Clockmon with humanoid body in the same page, but they didn't put Beelzebumon Tamers and Xros Wars in the same page. From that I believe they want to tell us this Clockmon is the same species of Clockmon but with different look.

They choose this Clockmon for the set as they should because thematically this is the right set.

Also, Pyschemon with skull tattoo and without skull tattoo have both appeared in the cards. So having two different looking Clockmon (with different colors) is just great. As always from DCG: love letter for every generation.

That makes sense to me, yeah.

2010 Beelzebumon also has different techniques and weapons, aside from being winged, so there are those other elements too.

Although the reference book can be quite a mess on how it organizes it's pages and what something having an entry means.

To be honest, it won't suprise me if later tri.'s WarGreymon, MetalGarurumon, Seraphimon, and Holydramon get their cards. As well as the nightmare Jyureimon from World and the WaruSeadramon with sunglasses from World and World 2.

I'd say we should treat this as the same Digimon as original Clockmon the same way we treat the slightly redesigned Algomon Worm Phase as the same as original Algomon Perfect. The card game used art of both forms of the latter on variants of the same card.

I could see how tri. WarGreymon has some design changes, but the others? Comparing pics of them, I just see mild differences in proportions. Is this supposed to be a "Xros Wars Lillithmon has an extra hairpin" sorta thing? Incidentally, I am left to wonder if there's meant to be any difference at all between VenomVamdemon and VenomVamdemon Undead, or if the latter's just the former in tri.'s artstyle.

I never realized that WaruSeadramon used to have black eyes. Though if we're talking about prior Digimon World designs, I'm sure some of us would love a revival of the original color schemes for Shamamon, Zassoumon, and some others.

Although the reference book can be quite a mess on how it organizes it's pages and what something having an entry means.
Yup. I recall discussing it in a prior thread, but it's odd that they can combine both of Splashmon's forms into a single page, yet something like Ginkakumon Promote has a unique entry. This is to say nothing of all the "Digimon+equipment" DigiXroses (though as I always say, I think that precedent was set by the ShoutmonX series, with the Star Sword being equipped or not determining an entire numbered difference between X3 and X4).

It's not as distinct as WarGreymon but there are differences. We should agree beforehand that "design =/= style". Having different art style doesn't mean having different design. Agumon in tri. (that looks super slim and funnily like the hungriest Agumon out there) and Agumon in Adventure is the example of (just) having different styles. Also Falcomon (2006) in Savers and in Adventure:. that have different sizes. Savers has that huge style to begin with (which also interesting because we can always consider it referencing to the lore about digimon size that varies). But the 4 digimon I mentioned have different designs. Of course we also count Lilithmon in Xros Wars for that category. Actually I wanted to mention tri.'s Omegamon but Omegamon often gets treatment like this from time to time so I left it. Also, DCG has many designs of Omegamon.

Bit out of topic, in Last Evolution Kizuna, they changed the character style from Atsuya Uki's to Katsuyoshi Nakatsuru's again, but they keep Omegamon design from tri. Which makes me wonder one time that we might see WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon in tri.s designs if they bring them in Last Evolution Kizuna.

NGL, I always preferred this design of Clockmon to the normal one.

Lovin' the art of him blending into the background of the clock shop. <3

Splashmon’s forms were likely never meant to be treated as distinct species since one is the true form of the other, it’s just that Xros Wars made said true form the DigiXros for some reason and people chose to not question it even though the Encyclopedia has always treated Splashmon as being a single species with two forms even when the DRB couldn’t support multiple images to a single page and thus used this to signify the fact:

I only care for digimon to have seperate reference book pages/wiki pages if there's seperate official write ups for them. So I wouldn't care for Tri WarGreymon to have its own reference book or wiki page as there's nothing more to say that won't just apply to regular WarGreymon but if they want to give closed top colored hands Clockmon its own lore over the piloted Clockmon then I'm all for it

Well, the point was that it was using the Xros to bring together the bits of itself that had been spread out all over the place, as he very noticeably doesn't take in any Digimon or anything while changing form.

hm, it's right after Beelzemon X. I guess we're not getting Belphemon in this set after all. The missing purples are most likely gonna be Psychemon & Astamon, but unless it's SEC for some reason, we won't see Belphemon yet.
