    Alright, let me start off by saying, everytime I search for the Seacons on this site, my internet gives me th "Page cannot be displayed", so my question is:

    I need more info on the possible Seacon repaints mentioned at Botcon. (or wherever) Be it documents or images.

    I also heard they were Club exclusives, right?

    Can anyone help me out? Thanks.

    The seacons might be coming out as a TFCC exclusive but I don't think further details have surfaced.

    All of us would, well at least a large number of us. Problem is that unless a store is willing to buy and sell them Hasbro doesn't seem to feel the profit margin is high on them to release them by themselves. It would be nice to see them through Hasbro.com, but i think the way Astrotrain stuck around and finally had to be clearanced off has kind of left a sour taste in their mouth about that route.

    Funpub has mentioned they are likely to be a club exclusive, not guaranteed yet, but they've said its highly likely. No word on a price or anything, but I'd assume somewhere around 100 maybe 120 based on previous pricing with exclusives and Botcon. Of course thats not that far off what the original boxed set went for at first release, maybe 40 bucks more, so I may be going low on my guess. We'll have to wait and see.

    i was going to get these when they were originally planned, but gave up hope and got the originals instead, wich i do believe is a better color scheme. I do like this one as well, but don't need them anymore.

    Same here. I don't want to go into the whole rant I did before, but I think it's just plain shady that this might end up as a TFCC exclusive that will undoubtedly run at least $100 plus shipping instead of in stores at a $30-$40 price point.

    Transformers are gold right now - and I find it really, really hard to believe that Walmart, Target, or TRU would pass on them again.

    I'd buy it if it was the G1 colors, I don't care it's available.

    I just noticed on that slide - they lost the rights to Skalor, so they named him after Aaron Archer?!?

    That's awesome!

    Actually, they said that was a joke filler name until they could iron down a real name, since apparently Skalor was taken.

    Being a club exclusive though, who knows, they might actually name it Archerbot.
