    I received this set the other day and Laserbeak is stickered, versus the other three being tampographed. Can anyone else with the set confirm that Laserbeak is stickered?

    In an earlier thread, Gogdog indicated that it was tampographed.

    I expected him to be as all the other encore cassettes, and even encores for that matter, that I had purchased were tampoed.

    I was disappointed as well when he wasn't. I don't have the first cassette pack with Eject and Buzzsaw, and I assumed Buzzsaw wasn't tampoed as well, so I didn't know that this mold was the only one apparently not getting tapoed while every other mold was. I am curious to know why he i different, as it was on of the reasons I was excited for this set.

    Eject and Rewind were not tampographed either.

    Which is sad, since there were tampo-labeled verseions of the two available at some point during G1's run.

    Anyone got good info on what is under Laserbeak/Buzzsaw's stickers? My guess is there's enough holes for screws/joints/whatever there that using paint instead of stickers wouldn't look so good. (I haven't dismantled one to find out myself, but it seems an easy assumption to make, since even the Kiss Players Sundor was all stickered up.)

    I imagine this is very likely, due to the metal back they have.
