    $20 ain't too bad actually.

    $37 for a set of both. Nice little discount. You can't have too many cassette figures!!

    Don't get this confused with the TFCToys Auto Scout that is part of the "Gears of War" set that comes with the Inferno ladder and Classics guns. The Auto Scout in your link to BBTS is the iGear set that has the following (directly from BBTS):

    1x AutoScout Cassette
    1x Original Story Comic
    3x Blue Crystal
    3x Energon Cube
    1x Tape cartridge

    Ahh right. I see what you were saying. I totally agree. I don't have a big desire to really pick up the TFC set. I like how the iGear set has accessories FOR the Auto Scout figure instead of accessories for other figures.

    I need to track down a Classics Soundwave (reissue) so I can have a figure to cram cassettes into :D

    I saw this earlier today and sent a message to one of the newsies. Not sure if this was the first time we saw this, but I didn't see record of it myself when I did a search.

    Interesting thought that the pics only show the blue, regardless of the label. Nice that there's Kremzeek and Energon blocks and crystals as well.

    $20 isn't bad, although I'd like to see pictures of the extra bits in each "package". However, I'm not sure this is an important enough accessory to spend the money on right now, especially since it's probably going to be about $30 with shipping included.

    Very cool! I'm very interested in these cassettes. The extra stuff that comes with them is a nice bonus. I hope the quality is good.

    This is a pass for me. I'm getting the TFC set, but won't be keeping Autoscout.

    It surprises me that two seperate fan companies came up with the same idea to make an obscure cassette like Autoscout. To make a profitable product, you would think they would've made a new Laserbeak, Ratbat or Slugfest even. Obviously they couldn't sell them as those characters but the likenesses could've been close.

    Still, happy for people are looking forward to this cassette. And very much appreciate what these fan companies are doing for us.

    Why do they ever make more than one color? They want to get more sales out of one figure.

    Hmmmmm skeptical

    I'm also extremely biased though- looking forward to seeing if iGear outputs quality product once people get these. ;)  Still trusting TFClub's GoW Pack more, since their track record's proven and all.

    Same. I almost preordered one, but I just haven't seen enough to really warrant dropping 30 bucks on it. I'll give it a little more time and (hoefully) see what the other items in the package look like.
