The first Generation 1 Shattered Glass figures – G1 SG Soundwave & Blaster + cassettes!

transformers shattered glass blaster and soundwave

Ehobby sets the TFCC straight!

It was bound to happen someday: the collector club got their grubby mits on some classic Generation 1 transformer molds. I never would’ve guessed that it would take teaming up with E-hobby to make such a thing become reality. We finally got a glimpse of the finished figures today and they look pretty awesome, if not completely wacky. What’s up Slugfest mold!? Where ya been, man??

I for one am excited for this set, mostly for the Soundwave half, but a giant black Blaster is kind of cool too. Maybe this makes up for all the hate that SG Soundwave received from this year’s Botcon set? No? Well, you a-holes are never satisfied so suck it.

Exclusive Shattered Glass G1 transformers from Japan

Yellow guy not included!

The big question here is what’s the price going to be? Consider the facts:

  1. This set is an exclusive set expected to be availble in the USA and Japan (so there’s going to be a large number of them made)
  2. It is a rather large set that includes two large G1 figures and 4 cassetticons
  3. Encore Twincast and Soundblaster were each released somewhere around the $65 pricepoint
  4. It’s being release by the Transformer Collector Club (so tack on about 25% more cost there for whatever reason)

I estimate the price of this set to be between $175-$225 + shipping.  So it’s gonnnnnna cost ya!  But man, bring on the Shattered Glass G1 Optimus Prime!!!!!

Botcon 2012 Shattered Glass Tracks revealed – red Road Rage homage as expected

Botcon released another image of a Botcon 2012 boxset Transformer today.  Nothing Earth-shattering, but at least we now know they went with the Road Rage homage for SG Tracks.  Kind of a yawn, black would’ve been neater. 😉

WST Ehobby Shining Ultra Magnus and Diaclone Powered Convoy from Heero Toy Maker

Collecticon Worlds Smallest Ehobby Diaclone Blue Ultra Magnus

That's either a tiny truck or a big kitty!

Heero Toys Maker is a seller on ebay that has gone by a few different names and has been a player in the murkier side of Transformer toys. He is creative and has been able to make some non-official production runs of world’s smallest toys including G2 Starscream & Ramjet, a G1 version of Acid Storm, and various ghost versions of other seekers. He goes so far as to make specific alterations from the original WST figures so as far as bootlegs go, I believe he does the fandom a service rather than a dis-service like other bootlegs and Knock off’s. Heero’s figures are always top quality and I’ve spend several hundred dollars with him over the past 5+ years.

I was excited to receive his unique WST versions of Shining Magnus and Diaclone Powered Convoy today at work and decided to share some quick photos. Each figure cost me over $30, but that’s pretty typical when buying from Heero on Ebay.

So what's more impressive here - the seekers or the magnii?

I was surprised with the size of the figures. The Magnus armor is rather large compared to the small cab. There are some new moldings and features not found on the original full-sized G1 version included a molded-on belt and locking mechanism for the rear section. All the joints and connection points were nice and tight. The cab just kind of sits in the armor, so that is the loosest part of the whole assembly; I wish it could clip in somehow but I can live with it.

I only purchased these to get the WST Convoy mold in these cool colors, as I am not a Magnus collector. I would definitely recommend these to any that are out there though! Hopefully you can deal with it right now!
