More G1 reissues on the way: Cassettes!

After offering a number of classic Generation One figures in fairly authentic replica packaging, Wal Mart is apparently planning to continue these releases. Some of Soundwave’s cassette minions will apparently be hitting the store shelves soon, so keep your eyes open.

The report offers these details:

Another great G1 reissue is coming to the market. Via TF-Factory on Weibo, we can share for you images of the G1 Ravage & Rumble and Laserbeak & Frenzy reissues.


These are sure the perfect complement for the G1 Soundwave & Buzzaw reissue revealed a while ago. Soundwave’s cassettes come in classic G1 2-packs with no differences compared to the original releases (Rumble is the red guy, Frenzy is blue guy as in the original toys), but Laserbeak seems to have shorter laser guns.

There is no information about price or release date at this time.

Thanks to TFW2005 for this story.

Interview with Transformers producer Lorenzo DiBonaventura

Metro.us has an article on the current state of the Transformers franchise on the big screen, in which producer Lorenzo DiBonaventura offers several thoughts about the future.

“We actually have an animated movie in the works that will tell the whole Cybertron mythology. The fans will love that,” diBonaventura teases. “We’re trying to figure out an [Optimus Prime solo movie].”

However, diBonaventura admits that trying to create an Optimus Prime solo movie will be rather tricky.

“It will be hard with Optimus, he is always right, very stoic and is a man of few words … It is kind of like saying, ‘Lets do a movie about Obi-Wan Kenobi?’ But how much is there to say about Obi-Wan? It is not so easy.”
