    Hello. I have a pretty straight foward question. And the question is mainly for the Classic-verse collectors'. I'm just wondering which figures fill the roles of the Databots & Datacons in your collection?

    <Adding a poll based on options I'm aware of.>

    Ideal:
    DL Ravage
    TF07 Booster X10 (Laserbeak)
    United Rumble and Frenzy
    BTS Nightfang

    Actual:
    KO DL Ravage
    TF07 Booster X10
    G1 Rumble and Frenzy (they're awesome, but they don't fit with my "updated alt-modes.")

    GDO Laserbeak and Universe Ratbat hang out on their own. If Hasbro loved me, they would be joined by a black repaint of Tracks as Battle Ravage.

    Honestly not sure what I'm going to do with FoC Datacons (... probably going to get all of them, honestly)

    D'oh! Forgot to add the BTS Minions to the poll!!!

    Is Ravage the only Datamaster you have?

    None of these Data disc things do it for me, the Ravage that came with Henkei/Gen Hound is how I want my Classics tapes to be.

    Having said that the MP ones look cool, but I'm not sold on the price.

    I am planning on using Universe Ravage, United Rumble & Frenzy, and GDO Laserbeak. Hopefully they will make a GDO Buzzsaw, but if not then I can pretend HFTD Sunspot is him or just custom my own. As far as the autobots go I don't know. The only ones out there are the PE ones and they aren't that great.

    Until recently, I was using 2.0 Blockrock as Lazerbeak.

    I've already got a good collection going but it's all over the map. Classics Overkill, GF Rumble/Frenzy, Universe 2.0 Ratbat.

    I'm hoping MP Soundwave will eventually get a US release packed with a bunch of his cassettes

    That FOC Blaster & Rewind will be mine!

    I'm only buying the FOC ones for characters that did not have an easy-to-obtain alternative in the US already:

    Decepticons:
    GDO Laserbeak
    Universe 2.0 Ravage
    Universe 2.0 Ratbat
    Universe 2.0 Overkill
    FOC Rumble
    FOC Frenzy
    FOC Buzzsaw (did not want to rebuy the SDCC Soundwave reissue JUST for this bird)

    Autobots:
    SDCC Ramhorn
    SDCC Eject
    SDCC Steeljaw
    Universe 2.0 Blockrock (because why the hell not)
    FOC Rewind
    FOC "Sunder"

    Blaster of choice is Universe 2.0, and Soundwave of choice is the Classics Reissue.

    MP I guess, although they're kind of cost-prohibitive to get them all. I want to like the data disks but the bots have no hip articulation and the alt modes look more like desserts than "disks". Actually, if they got repainted as hohos, cupcakes, pancakes, burgers and pork buns I'd be a lot more inclined to buy them. :3

    This is what I'm feeling. I planned on added FOC Soundwave & Blaster and their minions to my collection but the more I've seen of them the more that feeling changed. :( 

    I really like the MP ones but going that route who would be my CHUG Blaster & Soundwave? If Sonicron was re-tooled I'd use him as SW but there is no cassette holding choice for Blaster that I'm aware of.

    Perfect Effect. I'll use MP cassettes when someone gives me a Classics Soundwave that can actually hold cassettes. Sonicron doesn't count.

    Right now a combination of Classics (Frenzy, Rumble, Ravage) and Perfect Effect for what hasn't been released yet (Eject, Rewind, Rosanna).

    Unposable, ugly, and without detail?

    ... seriously, I hate Universe Ravage.

    None of the official versions have been good so for right now I have the PE releases (aside from Kingbat which I didnt care for), with a KO Device Label Ravage (official version broke in three places while sitting on a shelf :rolleyes2 ) as my cassettes but I'll be hard pressed not to use the MP versions as my Classics Cassettes. They're just too awesome not to. I have my doubts it'll happen but I really wish the rest of Soundwave's cassettes would get the MP treatment. If the data disks are as good as Has/Tak can do for a "lesser" line then I have no hope for good cheaper versions of them.

    - Decepticons - The various Classics-style figures.

    - Autobots - Undecided. I'm not too interested in the Autobot Cassettes as characters and could live without them. If I like the FoC Soundwave mold, I might get FoC Blaster and his data discs, although I don't like the auto-transform feature on the data discs. If the FoC Soundwave mold sucks, I'll just stick with TFU 2.0 Blaster and not worry about the Autobot cassettes.

    Currently I'm using

    ML Soundwave
    Ravage from the Classics Hound 2-pack
    G1 Laserbeak with Reprolabels
    G1 Rumble and Frenzy with Crazy Devy upgrades

    I plan on replacing Ravage, Rumble and Frenzy with MP cassettes. I doubt I'll be able to find a solo MP Laserbeak.
