    I recently read some info about the 1988 Seacon combiners (which form Piranacon) that claimed that they were Japanese releases only but I swear I remember having a couple of them here in the states as a kid.
    I would appreciate if anyone could give a quick rundown of the various releases and corresponding countries, assuming there are variations, as I'm considering getting one for my collection.
    Thanks.

    The seacons were released here but never as a gift set like other combiners

    They were released individually in both the States and Japan. The giftsets differed though, the US one only had five of them, the Japanese one had all six.

    The only US combiner teams NOT to receive the giftset treatment in the US were:

    Predacons
    Combaticons
    Terrorcons
    Monstructor

    All of which were released as giftsets (and individually) in Japan

    yes but Piranacons giftset the US version that is is not complete, Nautilator is not in it. He was avalible on card only. So the Jap giftset of the seacons are much more interesting and common the the US one and alos holds all 6 members as to the US that holds 5.
