Should the Club do Masterpiece cassettes as Botcon or Subscription Service figures?

    I'd rather have cassette repaints than Scouts. Nothing larger than cassettes could be done obviously.

    Maybe if they did cassettes as troop builders, we could have four instead of the usual three due to their smaller size.

    How about you?

    I love cassettes and I love Masterpiece, but I would rather hit my balls with a tack hammer than deal with the club.

    Not as extreme but sentiment understood. A piece of shit hack organization like them should get out of the game altogether.

    :D  since I would rather not hit my balls with anything, perhaps I should say:

    I would probably go out of my way and spend more through another outlet if it came down to procuring a club product. I hate doing it, but I have done so from time to time.

    The club would probably give us masterpiece Shattered Glass Ravage, and I would be all over that in an instant.

    IF Takara Tomy lets them know that they have no plans to do their own redecos (Diaclone, Kiss Players Glit/Sundor and other stuff like Stripes) from the existing molds and the Club doing them is likely the only way they'll exist, then YES I want them do it.

    Otherwise, no, I'm just fine waiting for Takara Tomy to crank out Enemy, Garboil, Howlback, Glit, Sundor, Stripes, Wingthing and even SG Ratbat.

    I also don't want the Club to pull a Rewind/Eject and redeco those from the Frumble mold. I can work with that for Classics, but not MPs so unless they're comfortable remolding it significantly to get an actual MP Eject/Rewind, I wouldn't even want that to be an option for them.

    No because it becomes twice the price and has a high risk of assembly issues. I rather have them be amazon exclusives or if I dare to say a tru exclusive.

    No way! You know how much they charge for a toy subscription and there toys they'd want like 50.00 just for one maybe two if we're lucky and for retail they'd go for 70.00 no way!Unless they do a club exclusive Masterpeice Soundwave but I dought they would do that and besides third partys are already doing that.

    I'd love official new tapes, at the moment I have a few custom repaints being done to keep me going, have Enemy and Linkin Park Laserbeak out of them so far :)

    I also find this to be a bad idea.

    Honestly, at this point, I'd prefer Takara and 3rd parties handle all my MP wants. Leave Hasbro and the Club to stuff I don't care about.
