    You can't replace the cassettes, what would Soundwave use?

    Figures for sure. Depending on the cassette, they can run you anywhere from $10-$300. If you pay that kind of money for a toy, it better damn well count as its own figure. :)

    I consider them as figures, since any associated figure is fully functional without them and does not rely on them to activate a gimmick or complete a mode (a la Minicons or Masters).

    Figures, seeing as how they have accessories. What kind of accessories come with accessories?

    Figures because of their characters.

    Figures. I mean, the G1 Decepticon ranks were thin enough as it is without adding a whole bunch of generic seekers/Reflector/Insecticon clones

    I think it's safe to say that they're figures by themselves.

    But they are minions/sidekicks as characters.

    THAT'S SOUNDWAVE'S DAMN PROBLEM. Though, all joking aside, that is a good question. What would a cassette player be with out any cassettes?

    I chose Figures, by the way.

    Hey! That's what I was gonna say!
    As for replacements, I think that type of gimmick with soundwave and blaster became obsolete and pretty near impossible to replicate with the advent of CDs. At least it'll take someone smarter than me to figure it out.
