    They're probably repainting legends Bumblebee into Cliffjumper because there's already a Bumblebee in the Henkei line. Don't know if I'll bite though since I got all 3 of those guys from HTS with the 20%(25%?) coupon code.

    Cool. I wonder if Red Alert will be released here statewide after the Smokescreen, Dinobot wave.

    I might have to get the Attack team now that Cliffjumper's part of it, unless Hasbro announces that they'll do him soon. i hope he has a new head sculpt.

    Will the Cassette reissue's include weapons? I would like to get some Ravage weapons for cheap, since they'll be produced more.

    Follows on nicely from the MP Grimlock price tag. i.e. TakaraTomy think that despite the global recession that adult collectors = suckers!

    It breaks my heart to know that they're right too.

    Rewind and Eject are the only reasons to buy this set. I'm sick to death of Laserbeak and Ravage, especially Laserbeak, since his mold now seems to be permanently damaged. Atleast give us Buzzsaw!

    Or it could be the real reason....

    The Yen has gone through the roof.

    That's why Toyota posted their frist loss in their history today. You can't blame Tak/Tom or BBTS for the Yen exchange rate.

    eHobby has the set for JPY 4200, which is around $46. I don't think you'll find it much cheaper than $50 in US based webstores.

    I am 100% all over this release, and any other cassette releases!!!!!!!!
    Very hopeful that e-hobbby will do a (some) re-colors of Trailbreaker in Diaclone colors. I could be separated from my money even easier with some or one of those. I think the encore series is ,by far, the best g1 re-issue series so far. The original-esque boxes plus collector cards are fantastic!!! $50 is a bit much for, essentially Rewind and Eject, but I'm sure the box will be sweet, and very displable. Do we have an idea when this will be released??
