E-Hobby have updated their preorder page for the Shattered Glass Blaster VS Soundwave set with a preview of the exclusive comic being offered with the set. The comic cover features Blaster's head in profile with Soundwave in the foreground. The preview page of art shows the characters from the Botcon 2012 Invasion arc prominently, including Kick-Over and Metalhawk. Could the comic in this set be a direct continuation of the events of Invasion?

Looks like a Shattered Glass Esmeral? And Cliffjumper catching up with his SG buddies!

There's a pic of the yellow cassette toy. Hadn't seen that before.

I'm looking forward to this set. I think FP would have my undivided attention if they did a full G1 mold SG series.

Unsurprisingly, Yoshioka-san did an amazing job with this comic. I can stare at the artwork all day!

SG Galvatron is back! Sweet!

Takara could do some of them.

Brawn, Bumblebee, Cliffjumper, Gears. Huffer and Windcharger in one pack.

Ravage, Buzzsaw, Laserbeak, Rumble, Frenzy and civilian brown Ratbat in another.

While I'm not a fan of the whole Shattered Glass theme, I do really like Soundwave's deco. If it was just him and say a SG Laserbeak, I would be really tempted. That said, while I don't think Hasbro would actually do this, it would be interesting to see the new FoC mold repainted in the SG colors.

Kickoff lives.

Wow, so looks like this will be in continuity, taking place after Invasion! I wonder if eHobby will put out some obviously sellable repaints like Optimus Prime and Starscream.

Can anyone identify the blue guy that Cliffjumper is pointing an (Unsurprisingly) accusatory finger at?

Also, seeing this, I'm hoping someone at eHobby is planning on doing the same thing with Fort Max. Having an official SG Fortress Maximus toy (Since we'll probably never get Omega Doom) would be awesome.

IF they made a SG Fort Max, anything is possible.

They killed him in the comics, so there isn't probably a rush on making one.

Rather they reissue a Grand Max than to make it a SG Fort Max.

"Shattered Glass" Fortress Maximus would either be the most expensive BotCon exclusive of all time, or perhaps a Lucky Draw. If there were to be such a figure, at least. However at $350 for a minty-fresh Fort Max versus $800 or so, that allows us $450 or so to pay a customizer to paint it up for us.

You know what. If i had the money I'd totally buy myself a Sir Soundwave.

Cool. I like the decos; I'll repurpose them as the G2 versions that never were for these characters.

Too bad FunPub didn't wait on releasing a SG Soundwave so they could use the FoC Voyager, or went ahead with it but used the WfC Deluxe, instead of going with the Classics Ironhide mold.

I know it's only a possibility at best, but hey, at least it would give them another use of the mold. Why let it go to waste?

And while I would love SG Fort Max, I'm actually hoping more for them to give this treatment to Abominus and Computron should Japan get encores of them like they have Predaking and Devastator.
