    Cassette Pack 3 was just sighted at Toys-R-Us near Daiba Station in Tokyo. They've been pulled off the shelf now as they're not to be sold until next week. Photo coming later today, price was 3499 Yen.

    Is it just me, or do Rumble and Frenzy look like they have paint apps instead of stickers that fall off?

    I haven't opened my other packs yet... Are they tampo stamped? I hate stickers... Now they need to announce two more cassette packs and all will be right in the world. Then, ehobby needs to do their thing so we have even MORE! I wonder if the price of Howlback and Garboil will go up for those that want complete cassette armies!

    ...waiting...and waiting some more. I'll finally be able to get my hands on Rumble and Frenzy! Not sure how many more Laserbeaks I need though.

    Plus I recently dug up my old Overkill so that wasn't a must for me. Oh well, at least the weapons will be all minty-chromed

    The tampographed details on these guys look beautiful. I'm looking forward to getting my order in from TFSource. "Red tape guy" (renamed to prevent any FIRRIB/FIBRIR nonsense, despite the fact that FIRRIB is clearly correct ;)  ) is the only one of my childhood TFs that I lost track of over the years.

    Sure do! I'm all over this set now!

    Can't tell either way from the pic, but I hope Laserbeak has painted-on stickers too, to be different from the million other Laserbeak re-releases if for no other reason.

    OK Takomykara, Slamdance & Squawkbox, then dino-combiner tapes, DARE ya! :D

    Excellent, I've been looking forward to getting Frenzy and Rumble for awhile now. My only experience with that mold is that I used to own a heavily-damaged RIB with two left weapons, so it'll be nice to have a mint FIRRIB set with tampos and shiny weapons. With a little luck, maybe these will hit stateside early enough that I can get it before Christmas.
