    Just got a mail from my supplier in Japan.
    My new Encores are on their way, jippie!

    EDIT: Many sites state the set contains Lazerbeak, but it contains Buzzsaw.

    Rewind and Eject have stickers huh? I was kinda hoping they would be painted on.

    My G1 Rewind and Eject are the painted-on type.

    Some people like the sticker versions but I prefer the painted ones.

    Awesome but this will be my fourth ravage and I lost count on laserbeak. I also would have prefered paint instead of stickers.

    I really love the box for it. I already have many of them so won't be getting it, though.

    Can anyone recommend a good online source for this? That will ship internationally (not for the price of going to Japan myself), and one in good condition?

    Cheers!

    The set contains Buzzsaw, not Lazerbeak as many sites stated.

    Hmmm... I've tried real hard, checked all the wiki's - I know they're the same molds, so how does one tell them apart - without being officially told one is one and the other is the other?

    I am sure the answer is obvious, but I just don't know!

    Buzzsaw has a yellow/gold painted "chest" and Laserbeak has a red painted "chest"

    Their the same molds. The major difference is buzzsaw has gold stickers. And laserbeak has red stickers.

    Guess I'm goin back to Toys R Us this weekend. Funny, I saw the MP Grimlock and B&W Convoy Mickey but not the Encore Cassettes. Though the last wave with Trailbreaker and Hoist, I had to actually ask for them, as they hadn't put them out for a few weeks after the release...

    Going to get this set for Eject and Rewind. Buzzsaw and Ravage are gonna stay in double sammiched Soundwave or maybe in the plastic cases if they come with them.

    They are in plastic cases within the packaging. Look at the cassette's holes.
