Meet the newest members of the Autobot Cassette team. Released as repaints as part of TakaraTomy's Encore 22 along with Twincast, very little is known about Nightstalker and Stripes since for one, they're based off of very obscure characters, and for two, they're also new to the "Cassette-verse".
Much of Nightstalker's story comes from a single issue of the Marvel UK G1 comics while others say he was meant to be the Shattered Glass version of Steeljaw. Stripes was originally supposed to be in the 1986 Transformers Movie in place of Ramhorn and is a repaint of Ravage.
Meanwhile, though toys were never made for Blackcat and Playback, they nonetheless get mentions here since they are still a part of the G1 Autobots. All we know of them is that like Nightstalker, they too had only a one-shot comics. Alas, whereas Blackcat still has some personality we can glean from the single issue, Playback's only appearance was as a corpse.( NightstalkerCollapse )+++++( StripesCollapse )+++++( BlackcatCollapse )+++++( PlaybackCollapse )
