    With all these cassettes being re-issued. I'm surprised that Takara hasn't done cartoon accurate versions yet, such as:

    Laserbeak & Buzzsaw - Red eyes, painted beak and the wings painted white with Decepticon logos rather than the wing stickers.

    Rumble - Purple colour scheme

    Ravage - Red eyes, dark grey body and lighter grey legs.

    Rewind & Eject - Blue eyes, red face but white mouth plate.

    I'm really surprised this hasn't happened yet especially as many of the other re-issues have had at the very least the eye colours corrected. Strangely, Eject & Rewind have Autobot symbols tampographed on their chests even though previously they never had them.

    Hopefully we'll get TV accurate versions one day and I'd like to see some of the later cassettes get repainted (Yes Ratbat, Slugfest & Overkill, I'm looking at you!)

    Didn't the Japanese dub of the cartoon switch the names back around to (sorta) match the toy colors?

    Actually both Laserbeak and Buzzsaw had YELLOW eyes in the cartoon, meaning they are already "accurate" in that respect. Despite what most people think it wasn't just Thrust who had non red/blue optics in the G1 cartoon y'know. Top name but a few - Steeljaw had yellowish green eyes, Ramhorn's are white, Slingshot had an orange visor, Razorclaw had green 'uns and the Combaticons had a whole rainbow of colours between them (well a slightly limited & dingy rainbow of purple, browinish grey, orange and yellow).
