I'll start with any issues with the set as this is probably what's worrying anyone waiting on their own. My set did have some poorly applied stickers and Overbites weapon does not peg in securely in beast-mode. I've also found the weapon stands are very hard to get the smaller Seacons to plug into. Personally these are very minor things and overall the set is fantastic. The packaging is similar to that of the Hasbro releases of Masterpiece Starscream and Skywarp. It shows of Piranacon very well. If you plan on keeping him MISB Piranacon will display very nicely. On one side of the box there's some great artwork very similar to that seen on the Universe 2.0 packages. On the otherside and back of the box there are photos of the Seacons. These are not 100% accurate to the figures you get (i.e. Overbite's no longer purple, Snaptrap has a green head) but it's not really that big of a deal. I think everyone should be familiar with at least one of these two molds so here's a comparison for size. I was surprised to find Piranacon held in place not by twist ties but by string. There was not a single twist tie in the whole thing. Stored neatly in the bottom of the box are all of the individual weapons, weapon stands, the instructions and Tech Spec cards. For some reason Skalor's beast-mode to robot-mode instructions are missing - the instructions jump from "2) Decepticon Tentakil" to "4) Decepticon Seawing". They also consistantly show Tentakil weilding Skalor's weapons. Piranacon looks great combined. The chrome on the sword and chestplate are very nice. The chest plate was very stiff initially when trying to fold the "wings" down so I'd recommend taking a bit of care. Piranacon is a little taller than the only other G1 combiner I have, Bruticus, and is also wider. As a scramble city combiner you can mix'n'match limbs with other combiners. I found the Seacon limbs were required a little more force to plug into Encore Onslaught, and the Encore Combaticons were a little loose in Snaptrap. They still stayed in place once plugged in, but weren't quite as secure. Individually they all look great in robot- or beast-modes. I would highly recommend these guys to anyone who doesn't have a version of them already.
