    That's including Japanese post-G1, toy only, and others I might be missing.

    Currently known Soundwave minions:
    Laserbeak
    Ravage
    Rumble
    Frenzy
    Ratbat
    Buzzsaw
    Overkill
    Slugfest?
    Beastbox
    Squaktalk
    Howlback
    Garboil
    Uriad
    Uruad
    Zauru
    Dairu
    Canyon drone
    Enemy
    Wingthing
    Flipsides
    Glit
    Sundor

    Thats soundwaves. So yeah just bored and thought I'd ask how many chest minions did soundwave have.

    EDIT 2: Blaster apparently has 15 Canon chest minions:
    Rewind
    Eject
    Ramhorn
    Steeljaw
    Dile
    Zaur
    Graphy
    Noise
    Raindance
    Grand Slam
    Rosanna
    Sundor
    Flip-sides
    Nightstalker
    Stripes

    so once again soundwave is superior.

    EDIT 1: 12 added. Bringing the total to 22. Wow. That's a lot of chest minions.

    Thank you!

    They are most likely just rando tapes.

    Rumble
    Frenzy
    Ravage
    Buzzsaw
    Laserbeak
    Ratbat
    Beastbox
    Squawktalk
    Overkill
    Slugfest

    Autobots:
    Eject
    Rewind
    Steeljaw
    Ramhorn
    Grand Slam
    Raindance
    Dial
    Noise
    Bass
    Treble

    Too many.

    Careful, that could be a Rule 2 violation.

    Not unless he posts indecent images of his female friends here.

    Seriously, do people actually understand rule 2?

    It does not say that acknowledging the existence of women is forbidden...

    Can you be a Casseticon but not be specifically tied to Blaster or Soundwave?

    First rule of TF Club- talking about the opposite gender is strictly forbidden.

    Second rule of TF Club- consult the opposite gender if it’s okay to join TF Club.

    The cool thing to me about the tapes is, if they don't make an MP of some of the more obscure ones, you can simply use the G1 tapes in their place, since they are the same size as MP.

    Do Tigatron and Cheetus count as Blaster's minions since they transform into memory sticks that can attach to his lap top mode in the Device Label line?
