    It's what I was expecting, and hoping for, so cool news.

    Eh, I'll probably grab this set, but this will only be released early next year right?

    I just pick and choose... and there am able to thankfully control the amount spent. For Example, in the next couple of months, I have already paid for-in full or pre-ordered some stuff. Only getting MP-13 Soundwave and Red Alert, and a couple of Takara exclusive Arms Micron moulds and recolors like Unicron, Silias-down and Nemesis Prime. :D

    Only one question about Solar, evil Autobot or heroic Decepticon? Looking forward to this set from the Transformers Club.

    He's not from SG but G1. I don't know if he belongs to any particular faction but I imagine he's heroice.

    It's more or less what I expected. Looks nice but I can't help but think it looks like a KO to a degree due to having seen a number of translucent cassettebot KOs over the years.

    This is however, the part of the set I want the most. The robots are cool, but I don't need a third SW/BL, and the SG cassettes are nice if a little bland.

    However, if they end up releasing more pack of SG cassettes on their own, I will have to come back for these. If I hadn't had my hours cut recently, I would throw down a preorder without a thought, now I'm constantly worried about every purchase.

    While I couldn't care less for the rest of these bizarre SG repaints, Solarbot here looks alright...

    Nothing in particular, but the VS sets in G1 were called VS(followed by a letter). So Skids, Sunstreaker, and Buzzsaw was VSZ, Grimlock VS Soundwave & Frenzy was VSY, VSX was Optimus VS Megatron. So this follows in that pattern but uses E (not sure why).

    It's a reference to Takara's G1 VS (versus) sets. The 'E' is for ehobby.

    HA. In your face G1 collectors. Now you have to buy the set, too, along with us die-hard Shattered Glass collectors. :-D

    Actually, he'd be more "unreleased G2 character", but yeah.

    Which is why I want him so much. Two of my favorite things are (unreleased) G2 and cassettes. Comebine them and I'm almost willing to buy the set just for Solarbot.

    Looks good and is pretty much what I thought it'd be.
