    Does anybody know where I can find some good pictures of these guys? Like detailed so I can see how they transform and how they combine?

    Check the TF Wiki maybe? Not sure if they have pics for them.

    I really would like to see these reissued. That would provide some good lulz.

    It's funny how nobody ever shows the combined modes, if pics were available demand would probably drop 50 percent.

    Yes, really.

    Some people want them only because they're 'rare', some for the dino modes, others because they're cassettes.

    I estimate that there are only three people in the world who don't have, and still want, the dino cassettes for the combined modes.

    and I'm one of them.

    Completing a set of Cassettes is my "grail". I love all of those little guys so much. Damn them for selling for so much.

    Oh, thanks. Great page. Combined mode pics as well as instructions. Thanks. I think that gave me most of what I need.

    sure, their ugly but i got nothing against acquiring them and selling them for a nice profit to folks that want them for the "exclusiveness" they seem to eminate....

    I think the guy from tfsource used to have a HUGE gallery of these guys, but I can't seem to find it at the moment.

    I sold my loose set a while back, so can't offer much help myself.

    EDIT: Here's the site, but none of the pages work anymore.

    The count was about the number of people who want them for the combined mode... not the number of people who want to scalp them.
