    The customized TW Seasprays look pretty good, but out of the package with the white face and blue bits it's an immediate no.

    I think I'll just pull the trigger on FT Seaspray since I think he looks good displayed with the other minibots ... and I have a friend who is in the navy and obsessed with seaspray, so if a better option presents itself, I can always gift the FT one to him :)

    Do you know if the stickers on that Toyworld Seaspray are sold by someone?

    I always saw Seaspray just a tad taller than Bumblebee, so for me FT or XTB size is right, but I can understand him being larger because of his alt mode.

    I think FT Seaspray looks like Seaspray, but does not look like a Masterpiece Seaspray, not Hasui, not Kobayashi. FT's athletic iteration of the character looks more like a kind of classics Seaspray to me.

    Toyworld captured the character's tubeness, but maybe a bit too much, and the body is way larger than the legs so it looks weird. It would help if they had gone fully toon for the colors (dark face, yellow faceplate and all body white), since the ones that people have customized look great.

    And XTB stays in a middle complexion, which I prefer. If they got the shoulders lower and more in line with the head it would look better, though.

    Yeah tw 'corrected' is MP aesthetic through and through. Just a shame he lacks that bicep swivel.

    This ft version is their weakest release by far for me, and I really didn't rate their anorexic Spotter so that's saying something. There's just something not right about an athletic Seaspray.

    I think he was trying to point out the irony of how this whole convo got started:

    His size doesn't really bother me. I wouldn't hate it if he was a little smaller, but I wouldn't call it a huge fail by any stretch. I think he looks great and is within the range of where I expect minibots to fall.

    Yeah, the white face thing is a non-starter for me. I'm also not crazy about his proportions, which I know sounds crazy since I'm also complaining about spindrift's proportions. I can't put my finger on why I don't care for either option (white mask aside). I just don't.

    Agree, I don't think this is FT's best effort. Which is a shame, because I would love for them to jump feet first into the minibot market. Can't have too many options. Also, Spotter is great. :stick:

    @SMB73 Thanks again for the embossed Autobot logos, I think it looks great on Spindrift

    Nothing about DX9's Powerglide is a huge fail. The only problem it has is the joints are sometimes a bit -too- tight

    I think FT Seaspray is absolutely perfect. A little heroic compared to the fatty animation model but it's for the best.

    As if you don't do the same in Giga threads, and I am not even a Giga fan. Pot calling kettle black. And no I don't hate FT. You don't see me doing that in ALL FT threads, I do in specific FT threads: this, Cesium and their Perceptor.

    I, for one, love my FT Seaspray. He looks like a little ass-kicker. I'm more than happy having him on my shelf. Tubby Seaspray is cute...but I don't want cuteness in an MP figure.

    The mistransformation to make him a bit squatter, chubbier, and "cuter" is pretty much perfect for those that want to use it. The actual transformation gives a lot of people a badass rendition of Seapsray. Win-win in this situation
