    I just got done watching the old school movie again and forgot about those crazy gatorcon transformers similar to the sharkticons.

    i think it would be pretty sweet if we got a classics or 25th anniversary of a more movie accurate sharkticon or one of those gatorcons, i think having one of those gatorcons would be pretty sweet.

    anyone else wish we had one or both of those?

    I always -hated- the Sharkticons but thought the Gatorcons looked really cool. I'd much rather get them.

    I'm going to feel really stupid when someone answers this and I go "Oh, THOSE" but what are the Gatorcons?

    They're the first transformers on Quintessa that Hot Rod and Kup meet. They feed them energon goodies but they don't reciprocate.


    edit: He's talking about these guys:

    edit again: apparently they're called Alicons :http://transformers.wikia.com/wiki/Allicon

    You're serious?
    There's not a SINGLE similar aspect between the two characters, or the toys for that matter. Don't get me wrong, the E. Sharkticon is an awesome toy, but... well... just but...

    I almost went there w/ TIT Scourge but I felt like the character could be done better one day.

    If we get one on par w/ that 25th Cyclonus it is on. I'll pick up 4 or 5.

    Is that the thing that ate part of optimus prime when Megatron captured him and took him apart? There's also snaptrap who is also a gator.

    Old school, nice! Those constructicons were some pissers. I saw that ep as a kid and totally took the mini screwdriver to Prime and mounted his arm holding the gun to a dresser like the Cons did attaching it to a building.

    Gator-cons > Sharkticons.

    They don't reciprocate, they terminate!


    No, that thing IS Optimus Prime. Everything but his head, legs and arm.

    And technically, they called it the Alligatorcon.

    I don't mind them coming out in basic size, like the terrorcons in Energon, for easier troop building.

    not look wise, but the way i see classics, is updating characters from g1...and the way i see it, there was one sharticon who ended up following the decepticon cause...and eventually reformed into an earth mode, instead of the mode he had...and he decided an underwater boat would work...

    I'd buy a repaint of E.Sharkticon as Sky-Byte.
