    Those pictures make the set look much less ugly. I may have to rethink my pass on them.

    I have God Neptune (the white one). I mostly got them for my love of pirates and Seacons. However, God Neptune is VERY bland and is VERY fragile. I look forward to the Universe Seacons adorning my shelves... Is it just me, or are there more paint aps than before?

    Wow... Now more than ever I can't wait to never own these.

    :yuck 

    Why do they persist in letting Japanese voice actresses design their color schemes??

    I've already made sure I have enough tucked away to order this set as soon as they let us. I can't wait!

    This, this is an understatement. Mine never broke, but I do believe it could've in time.

    I want this set so bad, I just can't see my way into buying it. Not at those prices, at least.

    I'm sure I'll have to give up my limbs for these on eBay again. Yes, that, I'm very sure of. :cry

    hmmm nope. NOT doing it for me. the fists should be black, and the yellow on the chest shield should be chrome. as little yellow as possible.

    I've said it before and i'll say it again, no re-paint, re-mold or prototype will ever beet the pinks and aqua blue of the original G1 release.

    While the pinks and blue of the originals is one of my favorite things ever, I am excited about the new colors. At least they went for a palette that's almost as crazy as the original, y'know?

    Those "japanese voice actresses" Shadowstich mentions know what they're doin'.

    Yeah; I'm sure they were fully aware when they took a huge steaming dump all over the basic tenets of color theory. :wink: 

    It's the same reason Action Masters Thundercracker and most of G2 looks so godawful, and yet Bumblebee always looks good. Take a good look at your Transformers -- the ones that look the best are ALWAYS the ones with palettes in equilibrium: neutral colors (black, white, grey, beige) balanced by usually two colors (or an analogous range,) and possibly a third color in small accents that don't overpower or interfere with the overall color scheme.

    You combine neutrals in balance with any more than two color ranges and things start to get tricky. Haphazardly slap together black AND white AND blue AND yellow AND purple AND orange and the end result is a chromatic nightmare.

    I'm sorry, but IMHO the OTFCC Seacons look like either some kind of test shot/knockoff, or one of those kid's coloring contest lucky draws. If you happen to like 'em, more power to you. I still prefer the G1 Seacon and God Neptune color schemes.

    Actually, the original Seacons color palette wasn't all that crazy! It was for the most part an analogous purple-blue-green color scheme with some tonal variation to add visual interest; all cool colors designed to evoke aquatic themes. If you look at Piranacon, only Overbite's dark purple bits and Seawing's neutral grey stand out especially, but they still adhere to the general palette so it's not too bad.

    Sure it was a little strange to make a boy's toy pink and purple, but come on -- it was the 80's. :lol
