    So... what are the chances of Takara reissuing the cassettes?? I've always wanted them but never got around getting them. I know the instant I shell out the cash for the originals Hasbro or Takara will reissue them..

    I hope that they never do reissues of them..... although you do know that there are Ravage and Laserbeak reissues that have already came out with the soundwave reissues........ note Cassettes is spelled with two ts

    Wile Japanese Dino cassettes would be the ultimate I would settle for at least Slugfest and Overkill or Squawkbox or Slamdance or well pretty much anything :lol

    Haha...woops....fixed the spelling in the post. Can someone fix the title??

    And of course you wish they didn't reissue them. You already have them. I'm so envious of that Soundwave/cassette collection of yours. Do you also have the Japanese dinos?
    And yes I knew of the reissues that came out with the Soundwave reissue. I already have two minty vintage Soundwaves. I couldn't justify buying another for just Ravage (I already have Lazerbeak). Also, I never found the damn thing at retail..

    I do not support KO's but just so you know they are out there. So that might be a cost effective method for you but since Ebay banned them they might be a little hard to come across.

    How's the quality on those? I saw people selling them at comicon but decided to not buy them. They were rather cheap... two sets for $15.

    reissue Blaster comes with steeljaw

    Ramhorn, Rewind, Eject cost around 30 loose in c8-c9 condition and ravage arent that expensiv either. It is the combininb casettes that gets harder to get.

    Since the Soundwave mold has been reissued multiple times over the the last seven years or so, and never with Frenzy or Rumble.... It may be a fair assumption that their mold is no longer usable or available, and Hasbro/Takara don't consider it worthwhile to invest in a new one.
