    Just wondering if people who don't like them exist?

    I don't think I ever met anyone, TF collector or not, who disliked them.

    i like what they've been doing lately in giving them new alt modes, or in the case of device label different alt modes for each body-type. give us more device label.

    I dislike Cassetticons... I prefer calling them minicons. :p 

    I do like those characters and it gives Soundwave a really unique schtick.

    If you have a G1 Soundwave, you need some of his team.

    I'm more of a fan of 'em when they're acknowledged as Minicons. I love that concept, I feel they need to be written in as either Powermaster Minicons or Targetmaster Minicons.

    They're alright. I prefer to consider them as Minicons as the Aligned Continuity does rather than as their own separate entity however

    I like them, but not because they are Cassetticons.
    I like them as individuals. They are more than Soundwave/Blaster's lil' minions!

    I'm a fan of them. I call them minions or cassettes though. Never liked the 'deployer' or 'cassettacon' terms. And I definitely hate the idea of calling them MiniCons.
    When Rumble gets wood he really gets wood.

    I bet he'd be unstoppable in TF: Prime though.

    I don't like them simply because there's no use or point for transforming tape cassettes anymore. they are heavily outdated.

    just like tape cassette players and VCR's are heavily outdated.

    Somebody need to go back and truly rethink what soundwave should turn into.

    Enter Transformers Prime design. Soundwave turning into a Spy craft of some kind is the perfect way to go. and if your going to give him minions like in this case, the cassetticons. They need to be either a part of soundwave entirely and just be drones or, make them into unique and useful altmodes that can function on their own if they needed to. A tape or weapon has no real purpose other than just sitting there motionless while a vehicle or let's use the dinobots as example....they get stomped all over til they are dead.

    Give these minions modes that can at least defend themselves or run away (or drive away)

    Cassetticons are spies first and foremost and are not built for offensive capibilites. their bodies are weaker and less dense then larger transformers, as is soundwave himself. He to is a spy, not an offensive class of warrior.

    Love the charecters but the cassette modes suck. Rumble in Prime is a car now, Laserbeak in DOTM had a lot of alt modes and Ravage could just turn in to a real panther.
