    The back plate on my Buzzsaw KO is definatly made of plastic, although the feet of the Rumble that came with are metal.

    I like these. Will have to add to my growing Cassette army.

    With the Frenzy/Laserbeak knockoff, it's impossible to tell that they're fakes unless you get a high res scan of the back of the card. From the front, they're identical to the originals and from the back, you need to look for the strange text font in the tech specs and the missing letters in the instructions. Unless there's some other way to tell that I don't know of.

    Then again, these might not be packed on the correct cards, like the Rumble/Buzzsaw knockoff, and that would make it easy to tell.

    Eeeh, I think they're super sweet, but I try not to buy KO's.

    If I go down that route it will never stop... trying to grab all the variations of KO's would drive me mad.

    Oooo I'd totally go for a Ratbat...the one I got off ebay a few years back was missing its ears (even though the auction said 100%, and the picture HAD the damn ears:redface2: 

    I'd go for Ravage too since mine is super floppy, but I know I'll be getting one with the Soundwave reissue.

    still got my vintage complete ratbat with both ears! He is pretty minty himself. Im not one for having huge multiples of the same cassettes. One of each vintage cassette is fine with me. Only ones I don't have are those DIno cassettes from Japan.

    Not sure since I always bought mine in person. But I've heard it could rather pricey on eBay. Pricey for KO's that is.
    I'm sure they will have black chests. The pics are of the prototypes.
    I do believe Ravage will be packaged with someone else. Most likely another Frenzy/Rumble.
    He got a lot of fan interest in the comics.

    Hells yes. Lucky I didn't buy that vintage Ravage like I was planning to yet. I'll wait till these come out for sure. I bought the other 2 sets (Rumble and Laserbeak and Frenzy and Buzzsaw) to go with my vintage Soundwave and Buzzsaw and I'll definitely buy this set. Can always do with more cassettes.

    I got both sets for 36 bucks, shipped from China, for those asking about price.

    Neato. It'd be nice to pick up a clean-looking Ravage. Never had Ratbat, either.

    The quality on these is very good IMO. It is hard to tell some of them apart from the other ones.

    I believe production on the two new ones should be done this week or next. They will be packaged as Ravage and Rumble and Ratbat and Frenzy. Kind of bad news for those who bought the first two sets they did but still cool to get.

    They should be around the $20 mark for each. If you are paying more for them, you are paying too much.
