    If you browse through the gallery here on tfw2005.com, you'll see that the seacons that were displayed at botcon were in fact the color swapped version, with a overly pink overbite, and a snaptrap with a green head.

    Now I'm no official, and have no "insider knowledge" (hetellme), nor do I make claim of such. I am just using my deductive reasoning here. I do believe this stands as official confirmation from BBTS that the seacons will in fact be in altered colors from their precise original G1 1988 color scheme. Yes I'm aware of the chrome on the sword, that much I don't mind, it is a sword afterall, but the rest may cause some potential buyers to steer clear of this set in favor of more accurate vintage flavors.

    Make of this statement what you will, but as for me, I'm waiting on youtube reviews before I preorder. How about y'all?

    Doesn't make any difference to me. They're crazily colored either way. Still a good deal.

    Last I was aware, the swapped colors were prototype versions, shown at botcon. But BBTS said the set matches the botcon display, thus my conclusion. As I said at the end of my last post, I'll be waiting until Peaugh or SeanxLong or someone on youtube reviews them so I can know for sure.

    but this thread is pointless, we already knew the bbts matches the botcon display, there was no need for a thread about conclusions or anything

    Not news. And Joel already told us himself in the very long thread about Piranacon that they were waiting on confirmation from Hasbro as to details such as whether the sword was chromed or not.

    I didn't see that, having given up trying to read past the price/exclusivity nerdrage.

    Stupid colors and box. I hate these weird shaped boxes Hasbro makes, they're absolutely horrible for storage. If Tomy comes up with their Encore version I'll buy it, otherwise I'll just pass on him.

    Oh, I'll buy it. Why not? The price is right. I've got the Club Seacons and God Neptune. These will be a nice add-on. Heck, if Tomy does an Encore set, it'll likely be in the right colors, so there's four sets of Seacons!

    I don't like those boxes either! That's what I hate...we got two companies that can release the same toys and in different packages. While that's good as a whole because we have more to choose from, the bad side is that you NEVER know what tey're gonna do. What I pass this set up to wait for an Encore release and it never happens? Then I am out....that sucks.

    Does this really need a new thread? It's already known.
