    Looking to track down info on the Takara Japan copyright on the cassettes. The ones with only those two words on them. Are they official? Where from? Are there more than Buzzsaw, Laserbeak, Rumble & Frenzy ones?

    Might it be what happened to existing Micro Change Stock from Takara, when Launched from Hasbro?

    Perhaps your question is a little vague. Are you sure you mean copyright?

    I do - There are Takara Japan no dates (unknown to me origin), Takara Japan with dates & also Takara Macau with dates & w/or w/o rub signs depending upon the release year & waves. I am only seeking to figure out the Takara Japan Stamp w/o dates. I have seen Soundwaves with similar stamped Buzzsaws. I own a Laserbeak & a Frenzy in this state. So I'm trying to crack the nut.

    It's the tail end of odds & ends for me so. They look really similar to the Real MicroChange releases vs the 5 knock off releases.

    I utilize Fred's Guide quite extensively. However, I do tend to occasionally run into points of conflict such as prerubs & rubs fitting the same 1 entry in the categories. As I narrow them down I reach out to them as well as here when I have questions as I figure I am not unique in my collecting focus nor alone in the timeframes or subject materials.

    This is one of those as while the acknowledgement exists, just looking to pursue further if anyone did know if they were actual production of Hasbro or rolled forward Takara stock. Always worth asking once cause you never know what you find til you do.
