Is there a list somewhere online of new blades 2012/2013? because I haven't found... Could someone tell me what are the new blades especially composite that either are since 2012 or that are coming out soon?

Xiom launched their Omni line featuring Hayabusa blades. There's a really cool new composite material called Zephyllium. I think it's Xiom's answer to Butterfly's Zylon. You can find reviews that says Hayabusa blades feel almost the same as TB Zylon line and ALC. But I think Xiom's Hayabusa blades are generally faster.
Their top-of-the-line Hayabusa ZXi has the following composition: Koto-Zephyllium Carbon-Ayous-Kiri-Ayous-Zephyllium Carbon-Koto, which I think is pretty similar to TB ZLC, also considering their 5.7 thickness.

4120

How expensive will they be?

Xiom products are, I think, reasonably priced. The top-of-the-line blade is 140$ compared to almost 200$ top-of-the-line Butterfly blades.
