    So we have seen the encore minibots, would anyone be interested if they did encore cassettes for blaster and soundwave? i think it would be cool if they did seperate boxes, one for blaster and one for soundwave. i would enjoy that. maybe 6 cassettes to each or all the tapes each one had.

    thoughts?

    If it was the 4 Japanese Dino Cassettes yes. Otherwise I already have vintage ones in fairly decent shape.

    I'd love that. For Soundwave I'd like to see:

    Ravage
    Laserbeak
    Buzzsaw
    Ratbat
    and for Blaster:
    Rewind
    Eject
    Ramhorn
    Steeljaw
    Grand Slam
    Raindance

    I suspect something happened to a lot of the cassette molds because Takara and Hasbro KNOW they would make a killing releasing those, especially ones like Rumble, Frenzy and Ratbat, so it seems like they would have released them by now.

    But yeah, I'd buy any cassettes they put out.

    But not everyone does.

    That's a silly reason. "I already have it, so there's no point in making it available to anyone else at a cheaper price."

    Aren't you putting a lot of words in his mouth? Isn't he just saying what he, himself, would or would not be interested in? Where does he say he wants to deprive others of them?

    I would love it. The 'con cassettes were basically the bad guy's equal of mini-bots, so why not?

    I would like to see Rumble, Frenzy, Buzzsaw, Ravage, Ratbat and Lazerbeak. Though the last one may be left out since Encore Soundwave came with him. (or was it Buzzsaw?) I don't see them doing the Autobot cassettes right away, (if tehy did the 'cons first) but if they did it wouldn't be a bad thing.

    Sorry. It sounded like he was saying they shouldn't be made.

    Enough people put words in my mouth with every breath I take. I should be allowed one mistake...

    Isn't this 50% of the argument against _all_ G1 reissues, official and otherwise?

    Yeah it sure seems that Laserbeak/Buzzsaw, Eject/Rewind, Ravage, and Steeljaw are the only usable ones they have. And I'd buy an Encore cassetterons pack for sure.

    Also wish that they'd make legends/mini-con class cassettes for universe.

    File this under "completely ridiculous"... three sets of six:

    Decepticon Set
    Rumble - Frenzy - Ravage - Laserbeak - Buzzsaw - Ratbat

    Autobot Set
    Rewind - Eject - Ramhorn - Steeljaw - Grand Slam - Raindance

    Dinosaur Set
    Dairu - Gurafi - Noizu - Overkill - Slugfest - Zauru

    And if you purchase all three sets, you get a free mailaway Squalktalk & Beastbox.:) 

    In all seriousness, a set of the six decepts would be great, as they were by far the most well-known of the cassette bunch. The prolific number of KOs on the market may cause Tak to think twice, though.

    I would love to see new cassettes aside from what's already been done.

    I'd buy an encore set in a heartbeat, but I'd love to see some new ones too (hoping this anniversary Ravage is gonna be good, it sounds great).

    Playback? Did I miss something?

    If they were going to do this I'd rather they didn't use the cassettes that have come with every Soundwave/blaster, Blaster/Twincast reissue.

    Screw the condors and the jaguar for Soundwave and screw the humaniods for Blaster.

    For the Con's I'd want to see Rumble, Frenzy, Ratbat, Slugfest, Overkill, Squalktalk and Beastbox.

    For the Bot's I'd like Steeljaw, Ramhorn, Grandslam, Raindance, and the uber elusive Japanese dino cassettes.

    I'd like to see more tape cases, it's a pain trying to track them down, I considered buying a load of 'Classics' Soundwaves for the cases till i realised what a stupid idea that was.

    I'd buy pretty much any Encore tapes, except Laserbeak and Ravage as I have quite a few of them of them already, looking forward to Uni. Ravage though, hope we get to see him at SDCC.

    We'd all like the Dino-cassettes, eh?

    As has been said, I suspect most of the cassette molds are shot/lost, as they would be a goldmine for TakTom, Encore releases would have to be better than the KO's.

    I'd buy the cassettes before I'd buy the minibots.

    Did Hasbro/Takara ever mentioned anything about the status of the cassettes molds other than those recent reissued ?
