    They could put the other gold dish in there too

    Also for everyone else thats complaining about the left spool not being painted, if you put him inside the tape deck the way the clear plastic is with Kingdom Blaster, you can't see the left side of the tape to know/notice that it wasn't painted. And if you put this same Steeljaw inside the newer studio series Blaster, the tape deck is solid non clear plastic so you can't even tell which cassette bot is inside him period, if anyone is even there! <_<

    This is perfectly reasonable.
    Tho, I'd prefer silver.

    I think you might be right about the painted gray circles ending up on either side of the mane. I guess that's why they did it, but still wish it could've looked better in tape mode too.

    True, though I also wouldn’t really mind if they just said screw it and made mainline cassettes cubes like BB ravage and simply reworked soundwave to fit that instead. The flat pancake restriction of being a cassette this small is just doing more harm than good now.

    That looks like a $5 figure, not a $12 figure.

    head and mane look fairly decent, legs looks shockingly terrible.

    I'm a sucker for a nice core class minicon/cassette. Definitely a pick up for me.

    I do find the cassettes are the worse of the Cores in terms of value. Their size is limited by Siege/BBM Soundwave, and most of them lacks articulation to be much fun, for me BBM Ravage is the only exception in that department to be worth a buy (and it's dirt cheap for those that waited for it to shelf warm, but unfortunately I'm not one of them patient ones).

    Steeljaw is not (can not?) breaking the G1 cassettes' curse, but it's Steeljaw, man, I gotta have it. I'll likely go for all the animal cassettes, damn it! I have little faith in Hasbro giving them extra articulations outside of transformation necessities, but please give us beast modes that looks great (and Steeljaw is, fortunately)!

    Every bit of budget went into painting that gold dish, it feels like Steeljaw is the accessory instead of that oversized POS. He doesn't even have knees!!!! LMFAO

    I'd love to eventually see Blaster/Soundwave at a slightly larger size class specifically so the cassettes could have more mass to work with. Wouldn't have to be a huge difference, just somewhere between Voyager and Leader, and always pack them with at least one cassette to make up the rest of the price.

    So yeah, I'm already wanting a redo, even as I'm grabbing all of the current ones. Never claimed I didn't have a problem :crazy: :drool:

    The accessory is crap.
    The sculpt is good.
    The articulation is non-existant.

    To be fair every other WFC/Legacy cassette that came before is worse.
    They even painted in shapes to give the impression of a tape reel which is more than you can say for any of the others.
    Hell most of the others either have the sprockets in the wrong place or don't have them at all.

    Would it be going on nylon?
    Seems to me the legs are the same plastic as the parts that have paint on them.
    Aren't the wings and blasters the nylon parts?

    honestly i would love for them both to get the core class treatment but even if both of them come with 2 guns what would you include to make it core class price point. R/F had their pile drivers. if hasbro really wanted to maybe just speakers again but idk
