the pricing and pre-order dates for their collaborative effort with e-Hobby, "Solar Requiem". The set features Shattered Glass repaints of G1 Soundwave, Ratbat, Slugfest, Blaster, Eject/Rewind mold, and Ramhorn. Pre-orders will start tomorrow and run approximately a month with a price of $195.00 not including shipping and handling.
And I still find it surprising that they still snubbed their Facebook followers when it comes to this, as something as big as this should have been posted there the same time it was Tweeted. Then again, they also excluded a e-HOBBY link on their page, while e-HOBBY posted a TFCC banner/link on theirs.
Also, I am wondering if this is Takara Tomy's second exclusive that was sold by both e-HOBBY in Japan and in an area that sells Hasbro Transformers. Because I read somewhere that the first was A-01U Ultra Magnus, who was also sold at the Transformers China Carnival in 2010. Even then, this is still a piece of Transformers history.
But with the price... I have to pass. I need to set up my 2013 vacation plans, and other stuff. Plus, I am iffy about trusting TFCC right now. So those who get it through them... Good luck.

Seeing how the items go on sale tomorrow, I am assuming we will hear something from them as early as the same day. TFsource, however, I'd give them an additional day or two on this.
