    I seem to recall a while back there was some speculation that Hasbro might release him (Piranhaking, AKA the Universe Seacons) through either HTS or the club store, and that there was a thread asking how much we'd pay for him if Hasbro did go that route... has there been any further development on this?
    I hope they're not still holding off in the hopes that some big retail chain will pick them up; its just not likely to happen any time soon.

    Personally, I think it's starting to look likely that we'll never get them. :(

    Yeah, at this point I'd be surprised if we ever see them. Although the Universe Build Team is just now hitting retail, so I guess there is still a chance. It really does suck as the Seacons were the only Universe figs I ever got really excited about.

    I dunno the prospects look grim, but I tried to vouch for the set by signing Skowl's petition.:) 

    I sincerely hope they release them somewhere down the line since I can't afford the G1 version at the moment.

    Last I heard, it was "further than they've been in a long while". So don't give up yet. It may end up a club exclusive, which wouldn't be a bad thing.

    I don't care how they come out as long as I can get a set. I've got the original and BW2 deco, so I might as well get this one too.

    Any chance they'd get a release at Target if the Build team repaints and repugnus/shark guy do well?

    For someone who used to bitch about being ridiculed at other sites, you sure are quick to burn bridges.

    OK, how come they stick RiD Prime & Magnus in Cybertron for no reason, but "can't find a home" for the Seacons? Why not just put them in a Cyb box and be done with it..???? I don't get it, what am I missing???
