    Not two I can get excited about but good to know there's still life in the line post-Devs.

    I'd consider getting another version of each of these guys just for those cassettes!

    The red and blue Rumble must be Enemy!

    The cassettes are what makes these worthwhile (I have the other reissues of them).

    Plus I hope Soundblaster has a blue chest (like the photo).

    Love the Ravage and Steeljaw redecos.

    No these are all new except for the Red and blue Rumble (which is likely based on Enemy - who is based on the old Radio & headset character).

    Soundwave's cassettes are recognisable and Enemy and Wingthing, but Twincast's are the two really crazy ones - the orange Ravage is Stripes, a tiger cassette-bot from the original script to Transformers: The Movie, and the black Steeljaw is Nightstalker, a contemporary of Ravage who features in the UK annual story, "State Games"!

    The double stacked door originally came from Soundblaster. TRU soundwave has the double door like the Original Soundblaster, the Dreamwave reissue Soundblaster, and this reissue Soundblaster, yes.

    What the.... recolored cassettes?! Maybe I missed the original news item but I didn't realize these guys were coming with new, different minions! Heck, these just went from a pass (since I have the first reissues) to a sure buy.

    these are pretty cool. I'm not a G1 collector, but if i was, i'd get them for the new cassettes. I personally want a Device Label Twincast, but that's me being a Classics junkie
