Jon 3.0 and Seibertorn himself sent us some picks of the newly revealed Dino Casette reissues Gurafi and Noizu from SDCC2019. For those unaware, these are more Japanese exclusive cassettes from the G1 era and they turn into a T-Rex and a Pteranodon. These come literally stick with an extra Frenzy and can be preordered on Hasbro Pulse right now for $35. We have a full description below after the pics.

Experience the figures that started it all. These Transformers: Vintage G1 Mini-Cassette 3-Pack figures are designed like the original G1 versions -- including figure styling, packaging, and art inspired by the 1987 G1 releases, plus classic tech specs and accessories. (Re)start a vintage Transformers collection with these Noizu, Gurafi, and Decepticon Frenzy figures. Decepticon Frenzy craves spreading fear and destruction. Can roll his drums to produce high-pitch sound of 200db.

Gurafi is the calmest of his teammates. Beak can tear through 5 cm of steel and has low-powered laser that blinds enemies. Noizu is the most violent of the Dinocassettes. Crumbles steel reinforced bridge supports in a single blow. Noizu and Gurafi combine to form Decibel. Clip out and save the on-box tech specs to share, then see how this figure stacks up against other heroic Autobots and evil Decepticons (each sold separately).

Includes: 3 figures, 6 accessories, and instructions.

The Vintage G1 Mini-Cassettes 3-Pack features figures inspired by the 1987 G1 releases of Noizu, Gurafi, and Decepticon Frenzy figures
Fans can imagine Autobot Dinocassettes Noizu and Gurafi teaming up to take on the evil Decepticon Frenzy in an epic mini-cassette battle!
Autobot Dinocassettes Noizu and Gurafi figures combine to form the powerful and quick Decibel

Way out of the market for this but WHY on EARTH would they make a generic framble? They could have done literally anything else and people would still buy the set for the dinocassettes. Enemy, and SG guy, anything...

Has nobody asked Hasbro the question about the extra Frenzy? I can't imagine it was just an oversight that they're releasing him twice.

I don't think I have ever even seen those dino tapes before.

I could totally go for a beastbox reissue though.

Why all at once, Hasbro? What's the rush?

I preordered this right away. Time to replace some knockoffs!

And, yeah, why Rumble?! Weird.

I think I’ve seen them before but am pretty unfamiliar with them are they somehow compatible with what is obviously Rumble and not Frenzy?

Of course the package says Frenzy, robots in disguise come on gang. :lol:

Why do another frenzy with the set, it should have been one of the yellow or orange generics from the early episodes.

An extra blue guy?

I'm gonna wager a guess, and say that it's a sly reference to the Ratbat pack back in G1, which also had an extra blue guy.

THANK you. I pointed that out in at least one thread. Enemy (or Ratbat, after having given it some more thought, since every time I've looked G1 Ratbat's price has been in the "annoying" range on eBay) would be far better choices than a duplicate blue guy.

Wait, there's already a Ratbat reissue coming? I missed that

Previous Dino Cassette Reissues Dial and Zaur Coming back in Upcoming 3 pack

When Hasbro revealed that the dino csssette reissues were new molds made from the original wood models, you knew that meant these would be released to kingdom come. And that's what's happening. Even though both Dial and Zaur were already released twice in both normal and clear plastic decos (accompanied by a golden bumblebee each time), they will be released a third time in an upcoming three pack. The three pack will have those two previously released casettes along with Rumble to go with the other cassette three pack which includes Frenzy. If anyone wonders what makes the Frenzy and Rumble reissues different than the Walmart exclusive ones, it is that these have decos more akin to the blue and red cassette in the G1 cartoon.

This new three pack news comes from Kapow Toys who announced it on their Facebook page.

So, in a nutshell:

- Dairu/Dile and Zauru are available in two sets, one set has an extra blue guy
- Gurafi/Graphy and Noizu/Noise come with an extra red guy
- Red and blue already come with Buzzsaw and Ravage

:BOOM:

Info overload can do a lot with me... :BOOM:

Ok, let's try this again:

G1 Vintage Series
Ravage & Rumble (red)
Laserbeak & Frenzy (blue)

Gurafi & Noizu, with Frenzy (blue)
Dairu & Zauru, with Rumble (red)

Studio Series
19 Retro Rock Garage: Bumblebee, Dairu & Uruaz
20 Retro Pop Highway: Bumblebee, Zauru & Uriad

No matter how you cut it, one still ends up with doubles.
