That would be pointless. With the TFCC markup, it will probably cost the same as buying it from a retailer like BBTS, so what would be the point?

Also, MP Sunstorm isn't an e-Hobby exclusive, is it? I assumed the e-Hobby/TFCC collabs would be e-Hobby figures. If TFCC wanted to sell Takara figures, why would e-Hobby need to be involved?

Since it's in Japanese, I'm willing to bet it's TFCC merchandise making its way to Japan again. First we had the BotCon 2005 sets going, what's next?

My guess: The BBTS-exclusive Dark Energon figures will be released in Japan as e-Hobby exclusives.

e-Hobby has posted another teaser that may shed some light on their collaboration with TFCC. The image depicts G1 Soundwave, Blaster, Ratbat, Slugfest, Blaster, Ramhorn, Rewind, and Eject in Shattered Glass colors. Toy versions on the way?

Update: For those wondering this set will be available through TFCC:

Update: We now have a translation:

Global New Year Special - VSE - Continuing in the Shattered Glass world - 'Solar Requiem' - Pre-Orders to begin in early September - eHOBBY Collaborative Exclusive - SG Soundwave vs. SG Blaster set - Bonus: Collaboration Comic (12 Pages, Color) - Custom sticker sheet - Deluxe packaging design.

Oh lord I hope not. I realize there are fans of the Shattered Glass universe out there, but I am NOT one of them. They would be cool as completely different characters, but in my view, Shattered Glass keeps taking up space and plastic that could be used for toys that the majority of fans want. G1 Arcee, for instance. A proper Classics triple-changer Springer. An Airachnid that can do more than move just her arms. Am I right?

It isn't to say that Shattered Glass wasn't a good idea at all....just an interesting idea that has run far past it's course.

Motto: "If it's not fun and you can't win, it's not worth doing."
The only possible good thing to come from this is a clutch of new cassettebots. Sadly, I doubt they'll justify the exorbitant (new Encore rate + 25%) price hike and - of course - the fact that Shattered Glass has run its course to the point to where there are streaks of mechanical refuse trailing along the road five years behind it. Dead. Unnecessary. Though, in their favor, the cassettes are cool.

I'm in two minds about this. One is that it is cool that they will be redone in SG colors but they will not be able to be displayed with my SG collection. They are far too big. SG Soundwave as a tape cassette already exists under Music Label Sonic White Soundwave. Blaster will look stupid next to him. The should have done a revised version of Device Label Blaster. While taller, he is more in scale and the tapes still fit inside him. Also, why Slugfest and Ratbat? Laserbeak and Ravage would have been better.

...not really.

exclusive repaints of existing toys aren't really stopping anyone making newly designed toys for the main lines.
I'd definitely prefer those three you mention than a lot of other new product we're getting but either way TFCC and eHobby would still be cranking out repaints of something.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

You are wrong. The Club is the one producing these and the Club is only able to repaint existing molds. New molds are being created but repaints also get produced too. Repaints don't prevent new molds from being produced and new molds wouldn't exist if the repaints weren't done.

It says Slugfest in the news story, but I don't see Slugfest in the pic. I do however see one of the Japanese Dino-cassettes.


They won't repaint a mold they haven't already reissued. You can see Slugfest's plates on his back and his hind legs are clearly Slugfest's, with the same details. I thought it was Overkill at first but no, its Slugfest, just at a weird angle and mostly obscured.

I like the G1 cassettes. Wouldn't mind picking this up.

I don't really care if it's Shattered Glass or not. All my cassettes are grouped together anyway.

I thought this e-Hobby/TFCC collaboration was supposed to bring TFCC exclusives to Japan and e-Hobby exclusives to the U.S., but so far Japan is getting all the benefits.
