remember the Transformers that would actually play those tapes? I think one of them was Starscream but I don't remember. I know there were two of them and I think one of them was a boombox/robot that if you bought the right one and had batteries would play the little tapes, but it was actually a secret compartment for another Transformer that turned into a tape.
