    Hi Guys, I know that series 1 cassetes (ravage/rumble and frenzy/lazerbeak) were released with and without rubsigns in 1984. However, afa also designates some of these as "1985 series 2 cassettes" presumably all with rubsigns. Whats the difference between series 1 cassettes with rubsign and series 2 cassettes with rubsign? I notice that there is a little "book" behind ravage on the series 1, but what are the other differences?

    Thanks

    No differences. AFA mislabeled a few cassettes. The pre rubs are all 1984 series 1, the rubsigns are all 1985 series 2.

    Just one more question, how come some of the rubsign ravage / rumble come with a little booklet behind ravage but some dont (and not KOs I mean originals)?

    I think maybe the quality control was an issue for the booklets. I believe the same booklet problem occurred in the Constructicons also.

    Thats true - I had that afa scrapper that didnt have stickers - I didnt realise when I bought it. Do the frenzy/rumbles sometimes come with the booklet too? or is it just ravage and rumble?

    I think you mean Frenzy/Laserbeak. I believe Frenzy/Laserbeak came with the booklet also.
