Question Squawbox?

http://www.warwithoutend.com/museum/stars/stars_02.html

What is this Squawbox? Never heard of or seen it before. Not that I can remember at least.

Decepticon cassettes. BeastBox and SqualkTalk turn into very blocky animals modes and also combine into a robot (Squawkbox); they were from the Japanese series, I believe.

They weren't from Japan [though I think they were relased there], they're just from the '88 range so missed cartoon exposure, and the comic was chock full of new characters at the time anyway; basically they're the Con equivalent to Grandslam & Raindance.

They are in the Japanese series, though? I could've sworn I saw them in the cassette end-of-episode infomercial (the ones that came with season 3)... and some of the footage used for those appears to be non-US from Japanese toy commercials/eps.

Nope. Beastbox and Squawktalk (with a "w"), were neither seen in any Japanese series, nor released in Japan.

So they are these Hasbro´s "no even we don´t know what this character is supposed to be, but buy the toy anyway" characters?
