    God Neptune is better in terms of colour imo.

    However this is the best option:

    Club Seacons look pretty horrible (and have seen this up close) and God Neptune (which I own) is very kick ass!

    Go for the BW.Badass bot!

    The club exclusive looks more like bacon with puke on it.

    I think the BW ones overall look better, but the club set still looks great, has awesome packaging, plus has the sixth member and all the parts (the bw set is missing a member and several parts).

    I'd go with the club set personally, but the BW set is cheaper.

    if the manta ray and crab or what ever it is, the white ones, were the same colors AS the others, i'd say the Club, but since they are not, BW2 has the best colors in my opinion, BUT lack the awesome parts, and is minus one member. so

    my opinion would be, BUY a BW2 one, buy the g1 parts, buy the missing g1 member, and repaint :D

    Go for the Japanese BW set. The colors are nicer but you don't get all the extra accessories. I got the Club Seacons b/c I like having all the extra parts tho

    One thing to consider is if you eventually plan to get both... The Japan set has been around awhile now... The price is settled and probably won't change much.

    The Club set is recent and could climb in price - It's already selling on Ebay for about $100 over the issue price... And despite the haters, a lot of us think it is a really nice set.

    I have always sort of wanted a set of the JP BW ones. However, I am also torn because it is only five of the six figures.

    They look like a coral reef come to life in robot-death form.

    Club set. It's newer and the price will go up because it was so limited, has all six Seacons, and has a MUCH cooler G1-esc box. Get Neptune later. There's my opinion. :D

    The original---best colors, and with how much the others are going for, not much difference in price. (I paid 80 for a complete set, excepting 3 small pieces I later acquired)

    Piranacon has always struck me as interesting with his colors--they're clearly "paired" and you can make him very symmetrical in appearance, color-wise. (as opposed to Bruticus or Menasor or Abominus). While Devastator of course has the most "homogenous" scheme, note Piranacon:

    Skalor and Tentakil are pink/magenta/blue
    Seawing and Nautilator are grey/black/teal
    Snaptrap is pink/magenta/teal. (merging all the "limb" colors)
    Overbite is unique, being the gun---he's the only one with purple.

    Depending how you form him, Pirancon can match either left/right or top/bottom, and looks much less "jumbled" in colors than he otherwise would.

    IF you can only get ONE right now, get the Club one while he's not costing you an arm and a leg.

    Then get the BW2 one later.

    I like the BW2 one better myself, but, I highly suggest getting all 3. Those guys are some of the best figures G1 ever made, and with all 3, you got a great and awesome army set. 17 aquatic badasses to tear through the Bots, or 3 awesome combiners. Or even a mix. Imagine the awesome fun.

    thanks for the input, i went with the club seacons, got it from a member on the boards for what it cost when it came out so I couldnt pass it up since i saw a few on ebay going for alot more and since i like it, i wont like it enough to spend 300 bucks on it down the road!
