As cool as it looks, I think it is way overpriced compared to the Twincast and Sounblasters. And dont give me crap about its "E hobby". In my opinion, Takara, Encore, E-Hobby, all work together and share the same molds so they should be the same prices.

I agree about them all collaborating and sharing better. I do think the club and ehobby collaborating is a good sign for the future... same with the club subscription.

Mind you, the pricing will always be affected by the limited run of a rare toy, sadly. All the production and labor costs can't be spread out across millions of toys. >:oP

I wonder what the final run of this one will turn out. Hmmm.

I decided to preorder it. By January of next year, I guess I'll have the dough to get it and that's when BBTS will get it in..

I like the tapes, and Solarbot looks great. And I really dig this white Soundwave. This will actually be my very first Shattered Glass Autobot.

Well, I was all geared up to order this but I have other things that my money will be going towards. Maybe I will be able to pick it up later.

I'm usually opposed to clear "repaints," but given this guy's glowing disposition — and knowing how much a lemon yellow bot looks like a kid toy — I think this guy's going to look really good. Nice call.

Okay... Encore is a reissue line created by Takara Tomy. It is not a separate group, such as e-HOBBY or even Hobby Town.

And e-HOBBY is a collaborator, and not owned by by Takara Tomy. So while Takara Tomy does make the figures through their factories, e-HOBBY has to pay them something to allow their stuff to exist.

Hence the exclusive pricing, versus the mass production pricing of TOMY's Encore line. >:oP

Couple of quick updates on the e-Hobby/TFCC Shattered Glass Soundwave vs. Blaster set. First TFCC have tweeted that the pre-order deadline has been moved up to October 2nd, so if you're interested in pre-ordering through them you might want to get a move on! Second e-Hobby have posted a small preview of the exclusive 12 page comic that will come packed with the set with art by Hidetsugu Yoshioka.

Forgive me if this is a stupid question but the e-Hobby set will be available from retailers such as Robotkingdom, right? TFC are doing is so people in the US don't have to pay import fees, right? So, there is no need to rush to preorder since I can get the e-Hobby version another time.

The set features Shattered Glass repaints of G1 Soundwave, Slugfest, Ratbat, Blaster, Ramhorn, and Rewind. Plus a Solarbot redeco of Eject in translucent yellow. The deadline to order this set through TFCC is October 2nd.

I LOVE how they used the convention artwork to mimic the old G1 boxes. This is shaping up to be a really nice exclusive.

Oh. In response to someone's post above, I read that the USA version has an English version of the comic. Since they went out of their way to mention that, it may be that the Japan version has a Japanese one. eHobby buyers may not be able to read their comic. (???)

This being e-HOBBY, the comic will probably have both English and Japanese text on it.

Though, it's possible the USA version might have the Japanese text taken out.

Yeah, it would make sense to plan it all as bilingual to save on printing costs. It never bothers me seeing two languages. It's usually kinda cool. I like trying to learn a bit of new languages.

Mind you... the exception would be the tri-lingual packaging where they delete the bio, description, instructions to make room for all the duplicate text... Ahhh, I long for the good ole days when the instructions had words. A little explanation like "this part will tab-in" would do wonders for the modern ones.

But I digress.

Yea bilingual wouldn't be bad at all. I actually like that kind of thing; it shows a kind of partnership between the country that made it and the country it will be sold in.

Once they add more than that it gets ugly. I always think it’s funny to see products that have instructions in English, Spanish, French, Portuguese, exc. Those languages are all SO similar it doesn't make sense to have them all pointing to a picture of a car saying: (EN)automobile, (FR)automobile, (ES)automóvil, (PO)automóvel. I think we can figure that one out.

e-Hobby and the Transformers Collector's Club have teamed up to bring us the Solar Requiem set, featuring Shattered Glass repaints of G1 Blaster, Soundwave, Ratbat, Slugfest, Rewind, Ramhorn and Solarbot (not a SG-character). The cover of the 10-page comic has been revealed, naturally featuring Soundwave and Blaster. We can also catch a glimpse of one of the pages inside which shows a mixture of normal-verse characters and Shattered Glass characters interacting, indicating that this will take place after the events of the Botcon 2012 Comic, Invasion.

The Japanese version of the comic will be available to those who have purchased this from e-Hobby[ while an English version will be available to those that had pre-ordered this set from the Transformers Collectors Club Store.

The set, which is collaboration with TFCC, features Shattered Glass Universe redecos of G1 Soundwave, Ratbat, Slugfest, Blaster, Ramhorn, and Rewind, plus Eject repainted as Solarbot. The set is scheduled to release next month. Check out the new images mirrored below, oddly Blaster is sporting a red Autobot faction symbol, which would normally be purple in the Shattered Glass Universe.

It's the lighting, combined with the teal door. The contrast makes the purple seem red.

Exactly this. Well spotted... If you shield your eyes from the teal, you'll actually see the Autobot faction symbol isn't as red as you first thought.

It really kinda stinks that the first collaboration with ehobby gets a miscolored faction symbol on Blaster. Hope that gets fixed for the US release. I'm not holding my breath but I am crossing my fingers. His alt mode looks nice in those colors. Really wish they had used the Device and Music Label figures for this set. I don't want G1 figures in my Shattered Glass. It's like moving backwards. They're great toys for what they are. What they are is old though and quite overused at this point.

They're in G1 bodies in the fiction, so that's what they went with for the toys.

Plus, there's folks like SG Perceptor and SG Ravage whose designs were originally based on G1 toys (Magnificus and Glit, respectively). ;)

So... if this is Shattered Glass, why does evil Autobot Blaster come with Slugfest, who is originally a Decepticon in the 'regular universe'? In the Shattered Glass Universe, that would make him Heroic Decepticon Slugfest, right?

Purple is a difficult color to do properly, as it likes to shift to red in certain lighting, and on certain monitors. Let's just wait until the actual product comes out before drawing conclusions.

Considering SG Blaster appeared in fiction in his G1 body (his only body that wasn't a repaint, excluding Device Label) a few years before this set, I find that unlikely. More like a happy accident, like BotCon Soundwave ;)

It's a set of seven figures. They just took pics of these two just because. They all come together in one set, though.

Soundwave, Ratbat, and Slugfest. Blaster, Rewind, and Ramhorn. And Solarbot.

This. Soundwave has switched bodies to support a modern figure (Botcon 2012 Soundwave) and/or suit a set of figures. They could have used a modern figure for whatever they wanted to do in fiction for Blaster too.

Except Soundwave had his Universe Ironhide body in fiction since 2009, a good 3 years before the toy was made. Happy accident, or deliberate future planning? You be the judge.

I'd still like to see how they're gonna explain him reverting to his original body though ;)

And Blaster, Ratbat, and Slugfest have already been in their G1 body molds since their first appearances years ago.

The only ones who are really new here are Rewind, Ramhorn, and Solarbot.

Continually stating the obvious doesn't make you more correct. You know what I'm saying. I don't want or need G1 toys in my Shattered Glass and by extension, Classics collection. The fiction or toys could have been suited to other figures. I stated my opinion. You can't argue with an opinion. I mean you could but that's stupid. Why am I still repeating myself? For argument's sake, Device Label Blaster has been out for over two years. Not sure how we got to debating how long a mold has been out for a one off release that could have used anything or been any theme either. I'm not really clear what point was trying to be made.

I didn't call you out to debate my opinion. I didn't call you out, period. Take it up with Funpub? I guarantee you I have called them out blatantly in a public forum repeatedly. You know what that does? Absolutely nothing but fuel frustration. Why don't you mind your own business instead of trying to prove you're right?

I agree. That's not a monitor or contrast issue. It's nowhere near the colors they've used on his legs, which is much closer to the traditional Decepticon tone. There's daylight between the two shades they've used.
