    The thread was started specifically about Diaclones. Soundwave does not originate from the Diaclone line. I think pieces of information like that are very useful. It certainly doesn't mean discussing Cassette Man is forbidden, but it is something that's nice to know :wink: 

    Maz just recently wrote about the transforming locks. I'd highly encourage you to read up on those (and several others) in his articles on TFSource's blog. It's great reading, and you won't be disappointed!

    I think I might have seen them when I was a kid, but I never had any at that age.

    I had a cassette that turned into a helicopter for my Micronauts. Not sure if it was diaclone. It was cool though..... gotta be late '70s or 1980 it seems.

    I remember the guy on the back of the box with chrome horns. I remember thinking he had a lot of die cast but was kind of boring to me. What's his name?

    It's just that all Nevermore does on this site is correct people as if they were utterly ******ed. Gets irritating after a couple years or so...
