    For our next gallery update, we bring you a look at one of the newest E-Hobby exclusive sets. For their most recent release, E-Hobby took Generation 1 Soundwave and Blaster along with their cassettes Rewind, Ramhorn, Ratbat and Slugfest and redecoed them as their mirror universe Shattered Glass alter-egos. The set also adds Solarbot, a new character from the Rewind mold who features clear plastic.

    The individual figures have some sharp decos - Soundwave looks excellent in white, and Blaster's "evil" deco really works with the mold especially with the way the head and face is realized. The cassettes, meanwhile, look phenomenally cool in their new decos, from Ratbat's Batman inspired colors to the red and white on Rewind. They are great redecos of the cassettes who stand alone, apart from the whole Shattered Glass theme, and just look great.

    Overall, this set is Shattered Glass "done right", using the mirror universe concept as a springboard to offer fans some great new versions of the Generation 1 toys. If you're a fan of E-Hobby's previous exclusives or looking for a place to start collecting this fun subset of Transformers collectibles, you could do a lot worse than checking out this set. Start your journey by having a look at our galleries, brought to you by TFW2005 site owner Tony_Bacala:

    Can't argue with redeco cassettes! The Soundwave and Blaster are nice, but the cassettes are the real prizes. Too bad for the holes in the tampo, makes them look more like ko versions. Hopefully the make more sets that include more with clear parts, really makes for a nice display.

    It's a nice set. Crazy how most people want the tapes over the two main figures.

    If you want the two main ones over the cassettes then I'd be happy to split a set with you.

    I could put in $150...

    Another great gallery, Bossman! Shattered Glass can eat it but this set looks awesome. I'm hoping I can score one at some point. One of them commanders is just so close to an actual Boombox :cool:

    Funny how the box has Takara(Tomy) and Ehobby markings but no mention of the club of Fun Pub.

    Not much interest in SG of course, but I love the colors on these guys.

    I've been out of the loop for about 12 years....what is "Shattered Glass"?
    Just repaints? Or is there a story line, or what?

    Shattered glass is mirror universe, like the crime syndicate in Justice league

    A perfect comparison, Sixshot.

    I loved the Invasion comic, and I really wish FP, IDW, or Marvel (or one of the other comic book companies) would have expanded on the story. One issue just wasn't enough. A trade paper back? Yes, please.

    So, Autobots are villians, Decepticons are good guys? Never read or even heard of the comic. Sounds neat.

    That is correct! Blaster, in all his dark glory, has a German accent and is downright evil. Sir Soundwave, on the other hand, is a music loving, laid back righteous hippie. As indicated by the headband you can purchase for the Invasion Soundwave figure.

    I can only imagine how much this set is going to average once it hits all of the online retailers...

    $250 isn't bad actually. It's $200 from the club site, + shipping, and then shipping cost to whomever buys it. If it hit $300, then you could say it's ridiculous, considering it is still available in the club store.
