    If you can piece together a G1 Piranacon I would go that route!

    Get Piranacon out of the way as soon as you can.
    A 100% complete one can be a bitch to get..
    Besides, he rocks!

    Devastator is my all-time favorite combiner, and if you look around (and are patient) you can definitely get him cheaper than Piranacon. I have to vote for him.

    For Piranacon, if you're not 100% devoted to the G1 version, you can get the BWII version for about half the price. Its missing the little guns and stands, but it still looks pretty nice.

    Piranacon! He's a bit pricey complete, but well worth it.

    You can throw $70.00-$90.00 toward a complete/decent Devastator any time, go for Piranacon:bowdown:

    Devastator and his various components and pieces seem to be more common than Piranacon and go for a lot cheaper, from what I've seen. If you're not picky about colour, there's also the G2 release of Devastator that you could get as well. Piranacon is a lot more difficult to come across, especially since there are more accessories and there was only one widespread, complete release of the figures (the Club repaint was exclusive and the BWII version was incomplete).

    ...and Nautilator.

    Why is Nautilator always hated on? He's my favorite of the smaller seacons. Even in the Price/Identification guide they say he was the least favorable by collectors or something.

    He was hated "unpopular" with the other Seacons, not with collectors from what I understand...

    I wanna play Mr. Snarky tonight.

    there's only a small number of combiners. Get them all and let Fate/accessibility determine pecking order.

    Devastator is fairly easy to acquire, so that is most likely to be next.

    one last option. what the heck do you like? if you think the Seacons are lame, well bottom o' the list for them. i loved Blades since i was a kid so Defensor was a must-get for me above the others.
