    Be they Autobot or Decepticon, we had Cassette Minicons. Did you have a particular favorite?

    For some reason, I'm particularly drawn to Buzzsaw for his murderlust, and Beastbox for his...well...being an awesome ape!

    You?

    My favorite in my youth was always Ramhorn.

    I totally dug Beastbox, plus the fact that he combined with Squalktalk made him extra cool.

    I do like those rare Japanese Dino cassettes. but never saw them in person. I watched a video review here a while ago. Maybe if I find it I'll add the link.


    Edit** here's the link: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...-dino-cassettes.html?highlight=dino+cassettes


    But as far as cool factor, ALL of the cassette bots were really cool, so much fun in a little package, and unique forms set them up a bit higher to me than the Minibots like BB, CJ, Gears, Huffer, etc.

    I only had the first four Autobot ones as a kid. My favorite was probably Ramhorn. I liked his color and his cool rhino head and tail, plus his I thought his little rocket launcher accessories were awesome.

    my favourite casette is laserbeak...fits in just as well with modern toys as he did with g1.

    btw anyone else annoyed that the casette minions are now considered minicons? They don't have minicon ports...why would they be called that? I know it's in that book that's out recently but it just annoys me...

    Rumble....the red one.

    And to tell the truth it was his color scheme that I liked most about him.

    I'm not upset at it, Minicons make sense for smaller robots in general. Now the whole Armada thing with them being little sentient upgrades, upsets me. I hated the Unicron Trilogy as a whole, and that bit in Armada I REALLY hated.

    Ratbat or Laserbeak. I'm fond of the 'spies'.

    However, I hate how people are now beginning to call the cassetbots/cons 'minicons'. To me, they're completely different...

    Toy wise I have a soft spot for Buzzsaw. Character wise Ravage for me. From G1 to Beast Wars he was a fun character to watch.

    I prefer the obscure ones.

    My favorite Decepticon cassettes are Overkill and Slugfest.

    My favorite Autobot cassettes are Steeljaw and Ramhorn.

    I love them all, but Ravage wins for coolness, character, toy variety, universe spanning and my girlfriends ace tattoo.
