    FT Seaspray has dropped out of the race for me pretty early because he looks nothing like the animation model. The XTB render is very promising but this guy ain't bad either. I like what I'm seeing but the eyes could be a bit bigger and the chrome less shiny. We'll see...

    PS: I'd still be interested in a BC version...;)

    Attention 3P manufacturers considering making an MP Seaspray (and Powerglide): if you want to lock me in, ignore the "minibot" scale and make it "oversized" such that the bot mode is at least carbot sized, and the alt mode doesn't look insanely out of scale with the cars etc.

    However you may be limiting your market to just me on that one.

    No, I'm with you. Realistically aside from Beachcomber, the rest of the S2 Minibots shouldnt really be considered "mini" for the MP range.

    Sculpt looks good. Colours look shit. Hope they make it in flat blue and yellow.

    Love that sculpt. As others have mentioned, colors are off, though. Still think it's the best realized sculpt. The only one close is xtb, but it's just a render, so it really doesn't count at this point. Plus it's xtb, and I refuse to buy anymore xtb products.

    For once, I'm totally against FT. While I like the look, it's not sea spray.

    Looks good, but I'll echo others regarding the color choices. I would prefer flat colors and no translucent plastics.

    I normally prefer MP figures with some added heroic proportions. The animated movie is my fondest memory of the G1 cartoon. Where all of the transformers were drawn looking more badassed, and it was kill or be killed. While the more goofy stuff like Optimus playing basketball, or Seaspray turning into a merman is fun and endearing, I kind of look back at it and chuckle at how absurd it was. Like 80s fashion.

    But FT's Spindrift might be too heroic looking. I can't decide which Seaspray I like best yet.

    I never thought I wanted Cosmo and Seaspray, but these 2 got my attention now, the chubby proportion actually looks good.

    I normally kind of like TW's designs but this...this is just terrible. The ACE one is even worse so it has that going for it. I guess all those who want a chubby Seaspray will get their wish, yay choices. The XTB one is more interesting to me because it is very reminiscent of the toy, and I like it when things skew slightly more toy, but he feels a bit too lanky. FT's wins hands down for me.

    TW looks the best. XTB is ok. All I see in FT's is a series of joints and the arms just look wrong.

    Nice!!!.....I really like XTB Seaspray but now looking at the comparisons I prefer the Toyworld version so far because of the chubbiness although his legs could be just a tadddd....bit longer just a little. And get rid of that translucent blue on the chest and replace it with the white detailed vents and detailed parts.

    But it looks like his colors resemble G2 Seaspray?...I do hope the colors are not final and Toyworld changes the yellow tone and more of a deep blue.

    Totally agree!

    Please forward the photoshop work Psychoshi did to Toyworld.....I know its not final yet but this photoshop color scheme pretty much nails it.

    Yes Yes yes....muchhhh better! Now I hope Toyworld removes the clear parts and replaces them with solid white detailed parts like the center chest vents.

    I'm really surprised how many prefer this option, that's cool, I kinda expected lukewarm reaction when I saw the pic. So it's FT and heroic look, XTB complete with broken pieces, some terrible shit, and .... Toyworld. Personally I will go with FT based on fanboyism or XTB for accuracy.

    Hmmm... Not a big fan. I like the other options better.
