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.
