    And hopefully Slugfest is more greenish like the toy I had as a kid for much more time than the character ever had in the G1 cartoon.

    The thing with later-season characters, if they appeared in the cartoon at all, is that we typically have a stronger association with their toy colors and design because having them as a toy in our hands in front of our eyes for way more time than they appeared on screen, changes how we remember them for nostalgia purposes.

    I'd much rather they give us the rest of the G1 toy cassettes before going to lesser-known animations or whatever Rosanna is from. There aren't that many left. So Slamdance and Squawkbox please.

    Headmasters had 2 exclusive tape decks, but no exclusive cassettes. With next month's cassette pack every G1 cartoon cassette, including Japanese series, will have been released by FT. Even Slugfest and Overkill didn't make it into Headmasters, appearing only in Call of the Primitives.

    There is some argument about Playback (Paradron Communicator), but he looks like a mashup of parts from various characters (I think those are Blurr's arms? maybe Rodimus' legs?).

    I'd love to see a 4 pk with these two sets maybe to be released with a Twincast and another 4 pk to have Slamdance and Squalkbox

    I know, but you said "from Headmasters". If they had been in Headmasters then the odds of FT doing them would be very high. Unfortunately they didn't appear so FT might do them, but it isn't likely.

    Everywhere I look this seems to be sold out. The price difference feels a bit steep in this case. Might ask Show Z if they are going to reconsider it or price match.

    Who is the little Dutch friend?

    Please let me know if you do and what they say. I had the same thought.

    It's crazy that this is only $5 less than western stores. ShowZ can't seem to make up their mind if they're going to be close to western stores or not.

    Alright. But they're fairly big, considering they're a European retailer.
