    Yes G1 cassettes fit into KFC Transistor and Takara Soundwave and vice versa.

    Anybody knows when the reissue of Transistor is coming out? It states June, but haven't heard anything exact.

    People on Speculation thread says Blaster it's gonna be MP 41 or 42. I was waiting for the reissue, but now...

    I'll take my $50 Twincast over the $120 takara.

    And the June restock is starting to look like July.

    $120. I think you might be mistaken. If sunstreakers 120 he's gonna be 180

    I'm now betting he will play music and light up for $200. Stop it, Takara.

    Are these the same folks who've been speculating on Jazz and Trailbreaker for... I don't now, years now?
    I honestly abandoned the speculation thread years ago when I realised that no-one in it has any real information and everyone is guessing. Statistically speaking if enough people randomly predict often enough, occasional one of them will coincidentally appear to be right. Anyone who has managed to get actual real information from Takara on a release is going to be so lost in the random noise that there prediction becomes worthless.
    I love the Transistor mould. Sold my metallic one because as great as it was, the pure red is even better. Just waiting on the re-release to get him back on my shelf.
    Even if Takara does reveal a Blaster MP, release will be early to mid 2018 at this point (after Sunny, Sideswipe 1.5, Dinobot...)

    Doubledecks cassetes are the only ones that are solidly made. The scorpulator mold is excelent and the Twincast/rewind is Rumble/Frenzy level. All the others are the problematic.
    I am willing to give them the benefit of the doubt to be honest. I mean What the heck will they fuck up this time? There is litteraly nothing.

    Until I actually SEE a preproduction or test shot of Takara's MP Blaster, I'm sticking with KFC's. The only thing that kind of worries me about KFC's Transistor is how crappy the cassette bot will be.

    Yeah, I don't need electronic crap, but I wouldn't mind a better Blaster than Transistor. I was in for the Transistor re-issue but am tempted to hold off if Takara can deliver MP Blaster in 2017 and it's not crap.

    I totally agree about Sunstreaker, but in my opinion Megatron rules.
    KFC did an amazing job, specially with Pure Red transistor.

    I think the facesculpt of transistor is a total win and the overall look of the toy but...
    Maybe they used too much MP Soundwave as a model for transistor. Blaster and Soundwave are pretty different in cartoon and toys.
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    I mean, KFC Transistor is great, but too similar to Soundwave, and the back of the alt mode in Transistor is not so good.
    I hope Takara reveals a prototype soon so I can decide before reissue is out of stock :confused:

    TT's Blaster is a given. I mean, he's as iconic as Soundwave, it's going to happen sooner or later.

    I love what KFC/XTB does but I'll be waiting for the TT version.

    Ppl should never take that thread seriously, it's called 'speculation' and not 'facts' for a reason. I hope Blaster is next, odds on his hips will be accurate to the toon and Transistor is then history but he's had a huge stint doing a stellar job in my Detolf.

    I thought it was confirmed by the Has designers that Takara was working on the 4x4s? Unfortunately, the things that can be remoulded/ppainted will always be fast tracked.

    I don't give a shit about Trailbreaker or Hoist.

    Working on could be taken in a few ways. They could have just started, TB could be announced alongside Blaster. They'll never be specific until we see the prototypes limbering up in a reveal.
