    2 simple questions..
    1) since we got both soundwave and blaster... are we getting any reissue cassettes anytime soon?
    2) are the molds damages therefore takara or hasbro's not reissueing these?

    I doubt it; especially since there are so many knock-offs out there.

    It would be nice if they made a set of Rumble, Frenzy, Ratbat, Overkill, Slugfest, Ramhorn, Eject, & Rewind (much like the minibot set with Bumblebee, etc.)...

    I think the better question would be "are we getting any more reissues at all?" It's been awhile since anything new was announced.

    They'd be stupid not to. I know a ton of people who have actively expressed interest in Cassette reissues. I know I'd definitely pay premium prices for a complete set of Autobot and Decepticon cassettes...including the rare Autobot Dino ones. Like everything I want, I know it's a complete pipe dream, but I'll continue dreaming dammit!:wink:

    That's be cool. It'd be one of the few times I'd make an effort to import. But I won't be holding my breath.

    They would be awesome and look great for todays brutal market competition if they re-released them in 5 packs like they do with the SW Titanium series.

    Im sure kids that's never heard of them would attract to it if they were in they're beast/robot forms.
    Then a new Soundwave on the side maybe to put them in.

    Cassettes would be awesome. They did it with the minibots, so it's feasible to think they could reissue a 5 or 6-pack of tapes.

    Two things I want as a reissue:

    1) a cassette collection
    2) Dinobots box set!

    I wish they would. It would save me money by not buying Soundblaster, just to get Ravage for my reissue Soundwave. :redface2: 

    I want my Ravage cassette, DAMN IT! :banghead:

    That's my cue to agree and add my typical:

    TAKARA AND HASBRO: IF THIS WERE TO HAPPEN I WOULD PERSONALLY BUY THREE BOX SETS OR INDIVIDUAL DINOBOTS. THREE.

    Thank you.

    I sure as hell wish we would see reissue cassettes. I don't think it'll happen, but I agree - in terms of wishful thinking, reissue cassettes would be awesome.

    Hell, I have two of the dinotapes and I wouldn't mind seeing them reissued. It'd make it easier to get the other two for one thing. :p

    The whole set. :D 

    We know the Eject/Rewind mold exists. Since we got it as a new character instead of either one in the ehobby Twincast set, it seems likely a reissue set would be on the way. Though we've seen Takara NOT do what seemed likely.
