    The new quote stinks. Therefore it is.



    At least they used his old box artwork instead of drawing something new.

    The only thing I like about this is his beast mode. The scales look great like that. The robot mode looks plain - maybe the old G1 stickers would make him look a lot better.

    Skalor--the first Seacon I ever got. (Sears, I think--possibly the last year they sold TFs there).

    G1 colors are way better IMHO. For stickers, there's always Reprolabels---and Deltastar offers both G1 and BWNeo color variations.

    You know... three... even two months ago I was all over these when I first heard that 'they're coming'. Now, I couldn't care less about this. I've got better to spend my money on at this point. I'll still probably pick up Nightbeat though... if for nothing else than that kick ass looking comic... the Seacons are rather underwhelming though.

    I'm also glad they're getting the stands, colouring's a bit 'unusual', but I'm a sucker for Seacons.

    I've avoided joining the club as the overseas rates are extortionate, but may do so to pick these up.

    You know, Even though I personally have no interest in this release, I'm glad for all the people who have waited for so long and now get to add this to thier collections.

    Aw, man. I was hoping he'd still be "Archerbot"!


    EDIT: Y'know, what the hell DOES his quote mean? "Though doubt may be imperfect..."? Bwuh?

    I was sort of half-expecting them to use that, as well. Eh, Skalor fits the toy better anyway.

    If these Seacons were new characters I would get them. Since they are the old characters, I will wait for the Encore release in G1 colors.

    It means Skalor's been drinking, near as I can tell.

    The toy does look great, though. I like the G1 colors better, but since I already have the original, I'm looking forward to having this new scheme, too.

    So, that shading on his scales...to show how filthy Skalor is? If so, that's fantastic.
