    I really need to know the TFCC pricing.

    I really hope we can get a lower price than the Japanese advertised one. Typically Japanese prices are higher even for the same stuff, so here's hoping!

    I bet the price will be roughly the price it is from Japanese to Yen ratio.

    Anyone care to split this set with me? You get Blaster/Soundwave whilst I get the cassettes. Can go 50/50 on the cost of it.

    Edit: Also, this sentence made me laugh:

    just how much is the Japanese to Yen ratio? Does it matter how old and what gender the Japanese in question are?

    I am guessing that the price of the SG reissue set will the the price of the reissue Blaster and Soundwave + 50%. Hopefully, Americans can buy it a a lower price from TCC, at least less the price of EMS shipping from Japan. I am sure eHobby is afraid of reverse importation like they do with blu ray discs..

    Yeah my sentence didn't make much sense. I meant the yen to US dollar ratio. So probably around $165.

    This set looks pretty awesome. I'm mentally preparing for a price tag of 200, for planning purposes. Then hopefully it will be lower and easier to digest.

    Yup. I'm figuring $200. Even better if it's $200 shipped. I'll be thrilled if it's less than that.

    Has a hint of Microman, but not exactly the same. Surprised they didn't just make the Microman toy the SG character.

    Looks like you could take all three reissues, parts swap and make a microman version. Twincast body, Blaster legs, and SG Blaster's tape door.

    You can pre-order from Transformers Collectors Club:

    https://www.toyarama.com/store/-pre-order-ehobby-shattered-glass-soundwave-vs-blaster-set-with-cassettes-1-pc-p209.php

    Or BBTS:

    Shattered Glass Soundwave Vs. Blaster With Cassettes - Transformers Botcon & Other Exclusives Club & Other Exclusives

    If you are a TFCC member, the price is better there. If not, BBTS is a good deal. Probably other online stores have the set for sell, too.

    SG Blaster has already been around in this body and and this color scheme for a few years. Its not something that EHobby just made up.

    Only Ramhorn, Rewind and Solarbot are completely new.
