Decepticon Microcassettes: Where’S Soundwave?

by Lambert Varias

A robot that turns into a microcassette player seems like an awfully dumb idea – once it transforms it’s so small that even a 10-year old can smash it to bits – but Takara & Hasbro have pulled it off. The robot was originally called – drum roll please – Cassetteman; fortunately his name was changed to the infinitely more awesome Soundwave. Part of what makes Soundwave such a hit are his microcassette minions, aka cassettetrons.

J-List is now offering a pack that features 4 of Soundwaves’ minions…but without a Soundwave toy to go along. That’s like Billy Lee without Jimmy Lee. A Single Dragon. That’s just bad and wrong. Oh yeah pics:

I can’t read Japanese so I’m going to take a guess and say that that’s Rumble on the far left, followed by his palette-swap, Frenzy. Unless it’s the other way around. But I’m quite sure that the T-rex is Overkill, and the falcon of course is the infamous Laserbeak.

Cram that into your little heads, kids: a microcassette (ask your elders what that is) that turns into a dinosaur. How’s that for imagination. If Transformers was conceptualized today, these four would probably be micro SD cards. Which would make Soundwave a card reader. Good thing that’s not the case. These diabolical storage media can be yours for a mere $45 (USD) at J-List. They’re listed as Vol. 3 of a collection, but J-List doesn’t have Vol. 1 & Vol. 2. No Soundwave toy either.
