Well I got those cassettes sealed with the Commemorative Soundwave, so I will most like need to preorder them just to have them outside the box. I also wouldn't mind Blaster's cassettes either. Wish they reissued Ratbat, Frenzy and Rumble though.

Can't wait to see how the Henkei minibots are painted, since the Universe ones are made of win. As for the Cassettes, I'd be vastly more appreciative of it if they used Rumble and/or Frenzy instead of yet another Ravage and Laserbeak, or if I owned Blaster... I should get the ball rolling on that one...

NO!

They should re-isue the cassetes Dail and Zaur who combine to form Legout

Ah, we can only dream about those Dino Cassettes... :)

And I'm quite surprised with that move, using Legends figures for the Mini-Bots. Wait, that means Bumblebee has two entries in the Henkei line! What are the odds?

And now for those who want a small laugh, the Japanese names of some of the Mini-Bots:

Bumblebee = Bumble
Brawn = Gong
Cosmos = Adams

The rest is unchanged. :P

The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

Encore, I assume, because it was said that these are reissues.

Pass, only because I was able to pick up the TRU reissue Soundwave released during Classics 1.0 (which had Laserbeak and Ravage).

As for the minibots... Might pick up Cosmos if I see it, but with my interest in Legends in general being what it is, it'd be better to pass on the Henkei set.

My vote for the HOF goes to my favorite Transformer, Kup, to the Headmasters (who still need new figures that aren't just the characters without their master components) and to seibertron.com for for being the ultimate TF resource.

Arg! They got my hopes up. Why reissue those by themselves? People who'ld buy cassettes by themselves already own Soundwave and/or Blaster. In any case, they probably already have these. Why not reissue some rarer cassettes?

This is great news, I've wanted a Rewind/Eject pairing for a while now. Must mean Blaster's on the horizon, we can hope.

While I understand some people may be hesitant about Ravage and Laserbeak...come on folks, the dino cassettes? Let's get Rumble, Frenzy, Buzzsaw and Ratbat back out there first. :P

The only cassette that I want that is Rewind, but I also need Steeljaw. I lost these 2.

I have Eject and Ramhorn.

I got Ravage and Rumble. I could use a Frenzy, Ratbat, Slugfest, Overkill. I threw these 4 out at some point in time, dunno why.

Don't want Squawkbox or Slamdance, got those already.

Even the rare cassettes would be nice.

Warpath is on the spy team? A tank? As a spy? Really? I guess he is a mini-tank.

I like the cassette reissues. Even more motivation to get that Encore Soundwave.

Excellent. This is my chance to finally obtain Rewind & Eject. I already have an original Ravage & s re-issue Laserbeak, so I don't need them. Finally I'll get some Cassetticons for Blaster!

Don't supppose this means we'll get repaints of the Cobalt Sentry duo whose names escape me at the moment.

Eject and Rewind sound promising.

Adams may come from Adamski, a name used by UFO fans for a certain type or shape of UFO. Lemme check Teletraan...

...yep, George Adamski.

These packs are fantastic. I can't wait.

COOL!

Only one thing though, why Laserbeak in the set? They should include Ratbat. Laserbeak is already included with the re-issue of Soundwave.

It's pretty cool that they're reissuing cassettes but they're all molds that have been released relatively recently - Flipside shares a mold with Eject/Rewind, and was included with e-hobby Twincast.
