I think it looks decent enough if you can get past it being associated to Beiber Park, but only 2000 units...can you say expensive as fuhk? Wouldn't be the slightest bit surprised if it was over $200.

Beiber Park? Come on now, that's not even right. Even if you don't like their sound, you can't deny Linkin Park has tons of talent. When was the last time a band made something like "Waiting for the end", with something like "Iridescent" or "The Messenger" on the same album?

If this isn't expensive, I'll be picking one up. Not only do I think it looks fine, but the fact that Mike Shinoda was involved makes me want it.

At least they can write their own music and play their own instruments and not rely on their looks and the stupidity of teenage females to buy their music.

Honestly, the bitching in this thread is surprising, and a little lame. Don't like it? Move on. Chances are this is aimed more at LP fans that TF fans.

Their previous album... Their shit all sounds like something they've already done. I bet their next TF is a silver Soundblaster...

So it's already been pointed out that all the accessories are mismatched and put on incorrectly, but has anyone else noticed that the set supposedly includes "Laserbeak, Ravage and Buzzsaw" yet the images show Ratbat, Ravage and Buzzsaw/Laserbeak? o_O;;;

So these three dyslexic men walk into a bra... oh HAHAHA I am so funny

Or rather, UNlucky draw Soundwave. Wonder if Hasbro actually made the whole thing out of gold plastic. :BANG_HEAD: Probably would be brown plastic with gold painting... Like what Takara does... But then why could'nt the gold be chrome... If it was chrome I would buy it... but it's more like caramel soundwave now...

So I get the link between Linkin Park and TF (although not using a movieverse figure kind of kills that connection) and Soundwave is appropriately music-themed.

But why completely (dull) gold as the Exclusive colour scheme? I don't know much of the band, but a full-body paint job based on their psychedelic RotF/DotM video clips would look pretty cool. It might've even been pretty enough to lure non-fans just by its looks. This is just... bland. I wouldn't buy it even if I were a fan of both LP and TF.

Here's what I would've done provided you're stuck with this m0old choice. You've got three cassettes = three movie singles. Deco each mold black with cassette details and the film titles on one side. Laserbeak is DotM, Ravage is RotF and Ratbat should've been Frenzy and Movie1. Then cover Soundwave in three or four screen shots from the films that morph into each other at the edges (see the New Divide clip). Have the Linkin Park logo on his shoulder and feature the band members autographs or picture on the cassette door.
