    Since we kinda got Rumble and Frenzy (I say kinda because we havent actually gotten them outside United) as redone scouts, do you think any other cassette bots will get new alt modes? Like a Ravage/Motorcycle or something

    Possibly, but I'm just interested in the Perfect Effect releases of these guys.

    let's not call them cassettes or an angry mob will rush right in and start nonsense or crying "outdated".

    Call them "deployers" or something close, they just happen to have the same form factor, just like they did before they came to Earth. Surely they were not called cassettes on cybertron.. (look at All Hail Megatron or War Within... or even MTMTE) :)

    I always thought the charm of the original cassette toys was the fact that they all started out as the same alt mode but became wildly different once transformed.

    If they could do something along those lines again I'd be interested, but we've had plenty of cassette characters as new alt-modes already, it's kinda been done.

    If they produced a range of smartphones that turned into Rumble/Frenzy/Lazerbeak etc, that'd be cool.

    I always thought that they should make classics soundwave a portable game system and the casseticons will be games for the system. portable game systems are like the new walkmen. but i am fine with the F&R tanks

    Well given we have rumble and frenzy as mobil anti aircraft guns I could see the rest of them as other smaller scale army equipment, ravage as some kind of humvee laserbeak as some kind of drone aircraft. Not sure what to do with blasters, personally I'd like the same kind of thing done. Then Blaster and Soundwave as soem kind of transport truck for them at the voyager scale maybe.

    I've had the exact same thought before. Something like the Gameboy Advance would probably work great for that. Unfortunately it would have some of the same problems as his original form, in that it would be hard for some people to take a game-former seriously.

    ^With a new head, maybe.

    A scout Ratbat would be cool... he could turn into some kind of jet.

    Don't forget the HTS exclusive (in the US) Overkill repaint of the Grimlock mold.

    I'd be happy if they all became something like the cannisters Cybertron Soundwave had of Laserbeak. Slap a MiniCon port on them and then just plug them on other figures like PCCs or something for storage. Maybe a 5mm peg too so they could lock together with other minions. I'd still like them to be partners or minions to other figures. Cassette minions were always cool to me because they all had the same simple alt mode but very different robot/animal modes.
    Do them in coloured clear plastic and call them Energon Cubes/Cannisters.
