    I mean, it's not like I'd be getting just the cassette, I'd get a big toy too. The thing is, I really don't care about Twincast. I've owned a real working radio Microman version, and the character means little to me.

    Yet I am very intrigued at the little pink cassette. It's the Microfan in me that wants it I'm sure. Even if they released a recolored set of tapes in the future, I'd bet we wouldn't see a female cassette again.

    Fanboy insanity? You decide.

    If you want it and have the money, yes. If not ,don't break yourself just for a tape.

    Go for it, there's plenty of people who'd buy Twincast solo.

    Well.. unless the cassette costs more than the Blaster reissue on the open market you'd best just getting the cassette. Saves you the trouble of selling Blaster too.

    I bought Soundblaster just for Ravage and was going to sell the Soundblaster aswell. But, after owning him hes really cool and i dont want to part with him. You may feel the same with Twincast.

    You're not alone, Im buying him for the same reason

    Will be nice to have Twincast too too hang out with Blaster since Soundwave has Soundblaster on his side.

    If you want the cassette that much, then just buy it.
    Simple as that. :) 

    Personally i'm disapointed with FLIPSIDES (that's her
    name right?) as cassette. I would have liked one of
    the regular autobot cassettes like Rewind, Eject or
    Ramhorn.

    But hey, i can leave Flipsides in the box where it is
    dark. Muhahahaha :D 
    I'm curious what the box of this set will look like...
    ...will it be the original Twincast boxart....

    @ Nightrain: already made op your mind??? Oh and it
    is fanboy madness, but on the other hand.... Who cares?! :D

    The simple solution is buy it and sell Twincast to me. You would be making someone very happy. :D

    I'm in the same boat as well, I'm not to keen on Twincast, but I would like that Flipsides...

    Might buy it and sell off the Twincast.

    While I wish it was coming with a "normal" cassette...that's just because that way I could ignore it since I have my original as well....and I was hoping for another E-Hobby cassette pack (and I still am)...as it is I'll be buying it (Maybe I'll give Twincast to my son...he likes watching Headmasters :)  )
