We can't agree on 3rd party stuff, but I will definitely agree with you on this. Last thing we need are repaints of G1 figures in Shattered Glass colors, though these two I'll take because you can never have enough Cassettes.


This. I cringed initially at the thought of having a series of G1 shattered glass toys. But I will shamelessly buy any and all iterations of these two molds. Hopefully this is a one-off...

I'd really like it if these were the Music and Device Label molds. That art depicts the G1 molds though. As much as I enjoy Shattered Glass, I really don't want G1 repaints as physical versions of those characters. I'd happily buy the ones I mentioned previously though. It's all about the Classics style for me. I'll likely buy this but the choice of molds isn't satisfying at all IMO.

I agree to a point. Some of the characters in the SG universe are based on e-Hobby color schemes on G1 toys such as SG Perceptor. That being said, I would not like any more G1 redeco's for SG characters with only two exceptions. 1. Cassettes because cassettes rock and 2. G1 Optimus Prime. I have a 3rd party WST Shattered Glass Prime and he just looks awesome in those colors. Much better than some official repaints such as BAPE convoy.

So if this was just some sort of different variation of Blaster and Soundwave ala Soundblaster and Twincast (like a different powered up mode) or simply "for fun" like that upcoming Lincoln Park Soundwave, would that make it better in anyone's eyes?

Shattered Glass doesn't entice me, but it doesn't put me off either. I have SG Thundercracker with my other official and KO Seekers. Red Decepticon symbol ... whatever. He's just another Seeker.

So everyone is assuming the cassette behind Soundwave is Slugfest.......but it kinda looks like one of those Japanese exclusive ones from G1. I think Zaur was his name maybe. The one with the long neck and tail anyway.

It is Slugfest. There's the horn on the nose, and you can see the beginning of the fins.

Also, there's a picture of SG Slugfest already.

Still done with the subject as I am pretty much tired of the same person chastising everything I say without any real merit. Even though he has a chance to understand me better, but hasn't even though I am trying to show him some respect for the knowledge he does have. >:oP

However, a friend of mine gave me some information that she obtained from a Transformers friend of hers. I 100% trust her, but she agrees that the facts may change by the end of the year. So this is what I have:

1) The collaboration is based on two things: TFCC obtains the rights to expand its club parameters to Japan. e-HOBBY obtain the rights to do a new line based on a series (more or less) solely owned by TFCC.

The other two are primarily rumors:

2) This is a plausible rumor: TFCC appears to be considering making this a part of their BOTCON 2013 exclusives. If this is true, it should be noted that fans should expect new packaging, but not expect the bonus items offered by e-HOBBY.

3) This is an interesting, yet questionable rumor: e-HOBBY might be planning to turn this into an exclusive line in Japan with new variations of existing SG characters. And if this turns out to be true, we might get to see a SG versions of characters they worked on in the past.

That is all I have. I am not going to to reply here, as I returned here to Seibertron.com to have fun, and not have everything I know be questioned. And Seibertron, I do not question his knowledge on the U.S. half of the line. I just question why he wants me to be wrong on the Japanese half, which is what I solely delve into each day. I hope that clears things up on my end.

You were asked to drop it, yet now you seem to be trying to continue it.

One more post like this where you're basically trying to further the argument and you get a warning. Knock it off please, or take it privately.

My only complaint is that the Rewind/Eject mold is overused now. The yellow guy whoever it is should have been the Rumble/Frenzy mold and the red/white guy should have been SG Steeljaw or some other mold that has barely been used. I was thinking each mold should be used a maximum of four times until the other molds have a chance to catch up. Still, they all look good though.

I'm trying so hard to like this and even want it. Ugh, the love just isn't coming. I don't want G1 molds from TFCC. Especially for a Universe they have established using things that actually work for Classics figures if not actually using Classics molds. I love SG and I want more figures. I just don't think this was the right road to take. I know it's beginning to sound repetitive. I'm just overly disappointed.

Its e-hobby (known for releasing G1 repaints) who are doing these using TFCC's characters.

Blaster, Ratbat and Slugfest are already known in the fiction to use the G1 toys in different colors.

Can I just get Soundwave and the tapes? I'm not overly impressed with Blaster.

I know I can't

Is it me or does it seem that when they reuse a mold anymore it really does get some use. Bumblebee doent seem to be the blame anymore.
