Eject! Operation: Illustration.

The Decepticon Mini-Cassettes (also known as Spy Cassettes, Recordicons, and the Soundwave Spy Patrol) are Decepticons who, on Earth, transform into analog audio cassettes. They can fit into Soundwave's chest compartment.

Many of these troops have communication or espionage roles. Recycling of body designs is common among them as well. Their counterparts amongst the Autobots are the Autobot Mini-Cassettes.

In the days of Megatron, Decepticons developed the art of espionage using cassette technology.

The Mini-Cassettes acted as a sort of special-missions force, under the command of their host Soundwave. Soundwave could store numerous cassettes within his chest, at times ejecting as many as four at once. The Transformers: The Movie Call of the Primitives

Laserbeak was frequently sent to spy on the Autobots at Autobot Headquarters, once using his cassette form to sneak in. Divide and Conquer Ravage likewise used his cassette mode to infiltrate Teletraan I and steal information about Earth's resources. More than Meets the Eye, Part 2 Rumble was used more often to destroy stuff, though all three frequently engaged in battle.

The less-seen Buzzsaw and Frenzy also appeared on occasion, usually acting in conjunction with Laserbeak and Rumble, respectively. Countdown to Extinction Atlantis, Arise! The Immobilizer

Years later, Ratbat joined the cassette forces; like Laserbeak, he specialized in spy work and reconnaissance, particularly in tight quarters inaccessible to Laserbeak. Secret Files of Teletraan II

Some time after that, Overkill and Slugfest also joined Soundwave's troops. Call of the Primitives
