    You really need to stop confusing people on the MP Rumble and Frenzy names. I don't even read katakana but it took 10 seconds to find a converter for it on google and RUMBLE is the red one in this case. You have it correct at first in your post here, but the second half and your site says Frenzy... Yes the pics are accurate, but the names aren't.

    Man. I wasn't really in the market for a Soundwave, but $30/cassette? That seems quite steep to me. And what happens in the future when Ratbat and some of the other cassettes are released? Seems like the Soundwave masterpiece "set" will be really really expensive.

    QFTT!

    And it's not even about RIRFIB or RIBFIR, it's about what 's in the pic source in Japanese!
    Rumble is being sold with Buzzsaw and Frenzy is being sold with Ravage.

    Eh, better to just list one as Blue Cassette and the other as Red Cassette and save the Red/Blue drama for some other time.
