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

I know I can't


Edit: Is it me or are they using the Soundblaster mold?

Yup, they are using Soundblaster and Twincast. You can tell by the size of their cassette doors.

They definately are getting their money's worth out of these molds this year.

i dont like SG but i think if they used the music label soundwave and device label blaster it would be nicer.

That set is awesome looking!!! Soundwave looks cool 8) Blaster looks really evil and so too are his cassete minions! Although SG is a bit werid to what we are most used to see this set looks absolutely awesome and I think one of the best E-Hobby sets so far :APPLAUSE:

Hmmm...My vision was a bit different.





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.
:MAXIMAL:

So, is the yellow-glowing Rewind/Eject not included as a toy?

the big bots are not for me. I like the tapes though.

Update on the yellow guy from Hydra:
Hydra on Allspark.com wrote:A lot of people speculating about who the yellow cassette is.

He's not pictured here yet because the character itself is going to be part of the final reveal.
Also, because he's not from the Shattered 'Verse like these guys are.

I've heard quite a bit of Primus and Emirate Xaaron, but frankly, I'd just as soon leave those guys to Simon Furman.

No, this is some serious obscura. Any more guesses?
It's suggested very heavily by the imagery in our teasers.


-Hydra

NOT Shattered Glass?!! Really obscure character?!! :shock: :shock: :shock:

Time to play another guessing game. :-B

Posted by craggy on September 3rd, 2012 @ 12:17pm CDT
I definitely got an Xaaron possessed by Primus vibe from him.

Suppose if it's not that it could always be one of the 13?

Usually i'm all over wacky paint jobs but i'm not feelin this release. Plus i'm not a huge SG guy either. If at all.

I also have multiples of both molds and the cassettes. I don't need any more.

They're alright though. Not my cup of tea but a fun release nevertheless.

Others have said it is likely to be Solarbot.

Wouldn't be surprised; e-HOBBY did give us Stripes, after all. ;)

Another guess is the Golden One from "Madman's Paradise".

I'll throw in the Alternity Agent as another.

Is it just me, or does Blaster's face kind of remind anyone else of TF:A Blitzwing's crazy face?

The artwork also showed Overkill and a yellow Rewind/Eject. What happened ?

The Overkill was actually Slugfest.

The Overkill was actually Slugfest.
and the yellow Rewind/Eject was explained in the update I posted from Hydra, like how its toy reveal will come later and how it (unlike the rest of the toys in this set) is NOT a Shattered Glass character. ;)

As to the identity of the Yellow Rewind/Eject?

Okay, I'll guess Bolts; good company for Stripes.

I wanna' see Playback someday, but that color scheme would make more sense for SG Playback, since he seems to be so full of life as to be unkillable, whereas Playback was dead throughout his entire appearance.

Rewind's TFU entry says he has the ability to release light from his internal data-matrix and become a blinding beacon, so it could work as "Flash-Rewind" too.

If it's a heretofore toyless character, Solarbot would be good company for Sundor, but I'll still guess Bolts.

Totaly should include Steeljaw BLACK LION instead of ramhorn

Also, if you listen closely, you can hear the sound of Glit becoming more expensive on eBay.

Since we're pulling names of obscure yellow robots out of our afts...

Boltax?

Ohh! Or that transforming yellow smiley emoticon dude! That'd be a fun one to own!

BlitzBlaster and his tapes are more than likely sales fodder. Well, Blaster anyway. I had a lot more love for SG 'Cons than I do the Autobots.

Yeppers. Seven figures. Three SG Cons, three SG Bots, and one non-SG mystery golden tape. ;)

And the identity of the mystery, non-SG glowing cassette tape is...

SOLARBOT!!!

They said Stripes couldn't be out-obscured. They were wrong. :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE:

I thought you already knew that, the name was confirmed a few days ago in another thread. I even offered +1 internet to the one who called it! :shock:

Huh, guess I didn't post in that thread to know that it had been said here.

Though, the one who first proposed it (as far as I know), was someone on The Allspark Forums (not me). ;)
