We have some sad news to report to you today regarding the highly anticipated Dinocassette Reissues.

We have gotten confirmation from 5 different sources that Hasbro Pulse is cancelling some of the pre-orders placed for the Dinocassettes. From what the emails from Pulse have been saying, it appears as though Pulse over-sold the Dinocassette pre-orders, meaning that those who placed later pre-orders are at risk of not having their orders fulfilled due to lack of stock.

The emails started going out a couple of hours ago, so if your dinocassette order is to be cancelled, you will probably be hearing from Hasbro Pulse shortly. You will not be charged for the order since there is no stock, though it does seem as though Pulse is offering a $10 off your next order coupon for the trouble of cancelling the pre-order. It is some type of consolation, but certainly disappointing that some people will not be getting their dinocassettes.

I did have two of the Seacons pre-ordered from Pulse but cancelled those before I got another email like this one. The pricing wasn’t too different than TFSource so I went with the latter.

In terms of engineering, yes. I've heard that some of the detail on them is more akin to the KO sets than the originals. I'm not saying that's true, but if it is I find it hilarious that even Hasbro themselves couldn't get an original set of dinocassettes.

I was hoping they'd do a second run of these, guess not.

Well since they never released them it falls to Hasbro reaching out to Takara if they have those mold casts or not.

Same here. Having to save almost everything up for Unicron meant putting this on the back burner, so another run was my only hope.

Funny how every attempt by anyone to reproduce the W Cassettes results in such limited numbers that their prices ultimately skyrocket near the range of the originals.

Gladder than ever I got the KOs back when I did, if the official reissue is doomed to be permanently limited, since one or two more fans holding out for this will own the ones I otherwise would've bought, and I still got mine from almost a decade ago. CHMS and KOTOYS, your actions now seem more heroic than ever, saving this subspecies from extinction.

Here's hoping HasTak make me eat those words by somehow reissuing this reissue someday soon, along with Slamdance and Squawkbox. Until then, my CHMS Classics Seekers will raise a 20-something gun salute in honor of fallen.

Perhaps they should cancel the orders for those @$$holes already reselling them on eBay at 100% markup.

Why is Frenzy in this set when people could get him for $20 at Wal-Mart.

Why didn't they re-issue say: Overkill and Slugfest (two Decepticon dinosaur cassettes), Squawk Talk and Beast Box (a bird and gorilla who could combine into a "larger" robot), or Ratbat and Flipsides, Enemy and Wingthing (the latter 3 being Japanese repaint exclusives).

I made an order when they initially went up and already received it. I decided to order a 2nd set to keep NIB and that order got canceled. I'm guessing they canceled all the late orders. This is really unacceptable that a company this big can't learn inventory...

I guess this is why Hasbro and Walmart work together...

I just got a reply from Hasbro’s customer service and they indicated that some of their stock came unexpectedly damaged therefore they would not be selling them and canceled some orders.

Well, I guess that is a pretty darn good reason for the cancellations

I'm surprised, look up the on site reviews for the SDCC Luke Skywalker vintage set, it's all complaints over how the set was packed. When I got the Refraktor set it was the first time I got anything from them with air bladders.

Well, I opened up my cassettes and the 2 dinos seem ok. I don't plan on displaying them combined, so not too upset about the stability issues. I already have like 4 or 5 other Frenzys, but since it was already open I popped him out too. He has a defect with the spring that allows his head to pop up after transforming. His head is permanently tilted to one side of his shoulder. Looks damn funny if you ask me. I contacted customer care and didn't expect them to have any replacements given all the discussion here. So they are sending me a free random Transformer. I can't wait to see how cheap they go with it!

Great QC Hasbro, as always.

Colour me surprised, Amazon picked up the Noizu and Gurafi exclusives for Canada. These are the dino cassettes from the G1 era that were reissued and only available at Hasbro Pulse (and quickly sold out). The three pack consists of Frenzy, Noizu and Gurafi and you can buy them on Amazon.ca for $49.99 CAD (about $38 USD).

Is that handled through the site or is it a third party service?
