    I don't think Piranacon has enough colors.

    Heh... I figured they'd have changed Piranacon enough to make him more desirable. I still want it, but man... considering that a lot of us thought that color scheme was horrid... I figured they'd have done something different with it.

    What I really want to know right now is how much Piranacon & Nightbeat are going to cost and when the preorders start for them, because I'm going to need to start saving for these guys depending on their prices.

    The Seacon's G1 color scheme is horrid; and this one is too.
    I might pass on these. Did they list the price for the set?

    Wow. That Piranacon looks horrid. Its like they're saying "Hey! Remember the worst parts of G2??!"


    Really, whats so hard about having more of a God Neptune type color scheme for a toy like this?

    Yes, it was horrible too... they should have done something close to the God Neptuen set. Or something new entirely.

    Perhaps they should have. But this is hardly surprising, given that the driving force behind these guys' current existence was the unreleased Energon/Universe set. FP probably didn't dare change too much, for fear of people complaining "but I wanted those".

    Bright colors or not, I'll probably pick it up since I never got the G1 version. Hopefully, the price will be affordable...

    That's probably a likely scenario. I still intend on buying them... if for nothing else to support the club and now that they've released both the 'wah wah, we want the unreleased Universe toys' figures... hopefully they'll do some really cool stuff next year.

    Crap... just looking over their Botcon comics there's tones of exclusives they could have done that haven't been made. I'd kill for that Thunderblast as Elita-One or the Leobreaker as Razorclaw! So, hopefully next year.

    On the plus side... Nightbeat is pure love and I actually don't like the Energon Hot Shot mold!
