As if the Decepticon Data Disks making it to US retail yesterday was not enough, we are getting reports that the Autobot Data Disks have been found at retail in Singapore. The Diskbots - Eject, Rewind, Ramhorn and Sunder - are paired with Soundwave's opposite number, Blaster - who himself is just recently out through some Asian outlets. Here's hoping they make it to US retail in the new year so fans can assemble the Communicators and their cassette minions for the Classics series!

Rewind and Sunder look really, really good, and I love the shade of blue they used on Eject.

Yeah, our stuff are overly priced. Lol. Might get them, they looked cool in the game and in toy as well.
miscreant
Don't need.

Must own!

So you're telling me that I could have made a whole damn thread about the way over-priced ones (that are also at RRP for here - NZ$20, roughly US$17) that I found here in New Zealand a few weeks ago? Damn. Not that I really care. I just didn't realise people had only started finding them. I found two packs. I didn't pay enough attention to them. I thought they were both Decepticon packs, but I assume there's only one of each (I don't remember), and so I would have seen both variations.

Anyway, the point is, they've been out here for a while, and apart from the first two waves of Fall of Cybertron, wave 2 of Prime is near impossible to find here, and anything beyond that for either line is also impossible to find. Probably because everyone is still trying to get rid of those crappy DOTM toys. They're half off and NO ONE IS BUYING THEM. I wonder why? Oh, I know. Because they suck.

Oh, and my other point is that, at least here in NZ, these things are WAY overpriced for what they are. Easy pass. Until I get Soundwave. And them I'm just going to import the Japanese versions of the Cassetticons, because for a few dollars more, I can get far superior paint jobs, and I'm a sucker for nice paint jobs.

They were in the game?
Kaijumaster

Dinobot Nuva
Going for Rewind/Sunder, I'm fine with the SDCC reissues of the other two.
Autovolt 127
Totally gonna buy these guys.
Soundwinder
Have there been any decent pics of Ramhorn yet?

The Autobot two packs haven't been sighted in NZ, only the Decepticon two packs. And Farmers sell them at $17.99.

hate the gimmick!!! i want to return mine! i wish they just did a scout or a cybervserse class with no gimmick!!!!!
Starscream NZ
You mean the gimmick these characters have always had? Being Cassettes/mini-partners for Soundwave and Blaster?

I imagine he means the spring-loaded auto-transform.

Which, of course, is a HUGE part of the reason I want these.
Digilaut
I think it's a nifty idea, and I will probably get these. But I do think that these could be a lot better if they didn't have to implement the auto-transform.

But that's ok. Because there's Masterpiece tapes coming up for half of these characters, and I'm sure the Bot cassettes will eventually follow.

(also, the G1 tapes are still very cool, although a bit flat )
PrimusVsUnicron
will buy these guys and FOC Blaster
grayman
Is Sunder a straight repaint of Laserbeak or is it remolded?
SPLIT LIP
Rewind is mine all because of MTMTE.

He will be my only 2013 TF purchase until maybe fall/winter. And that's a huge maybe.

He's a redeco if that's what you mean.
Sideswipe80
Can't wait for these. I had Rewind and Steeljaw as a kid. Looking forward to having them again.
grayman
That's what I meant Split Lip. Thanks.
sh002
If I find these when they come out I might get them. I'll be ok if I don't. I had more of an attachment to the Decepticon cassettes anyway.
GogDog
We need bio pics! I want to know if Hasbro used KP Sundor's bio.
Erland
Just got the Decepticon versions and can't wait to get these....

Blaster was my favorite as a kid and I gotta have these, never had the tapes as a kid, I'm sure my brother took them and said they belonged to his Soundwave but, honestly I don't remember..

I want to get Remind for that reason as well.
Shark Jumper
any reviews for these?
Prime Jetscream
Now that I have, and love, the Decepticon ones, I want these.
Torque
did these make it stateside?
Deathx360
HTS and BBTS had them but sold out. No brick and mortar sightings so far.
puma
got mine from HTS mid month. Haven't opened them yet. Been on the road working for the last 2 weeks.
