    I like this chubbiness. Change the colors to cartoon, which is the point of the MP style, and I buy.

    The only 2 issues i have, are that I hate the "gun", it's basically just a piece of the alt mode with a barrel sticking out of it. Whilst i am used to this gimmick in lines like BW/Animated/Armada etc, i'd rather this be left out of the MP line, as we're trying to follow a more G1 line of accuracy (i say G1, and not toon/toy, because i know some toys didn't have guns, and toons would give some characters "generic" guns)

    The other thing is the feet. I really like how he captures the chubbiness of Seaspray, but if I could remove the round ankle bits off the sides of his feet, they'd really look more like feet and less like boots with padding.

    I know, right?
    I didn't see that coming. And I never saw myself wanting a Seaspray. But, like Cosmos, he is very distinctive, and he adds diversity to the group. I am already getting ToyWorld's Cosmos, Spaceracer....

    And I like this one. Like #Psychoshi, I want my MPs to have more heroic proportions, look more like they existed in the real world, all that. But, I guess that's really for Prowl, Prime, Ironhide and the like. When you've got weird little guys like Cosmos, Seaspray, let them be weird. Fanstoys' version is way too normalized idealized humanoid, which works great for Skyfire, but I don't want it on Seaspray. It takes away from what is distinctive about him.

    Also like Psychoshi's colors better. But want it even further toon flat, at least in the yellow. I don't know why - I like the gold on Cosmos, but Seaspray I want yellow.

    Oh man... I do love the TW stuff, but the FT version compared to the TW... for me it's FT hands down. Just hope they release it sooner rather than later or I may not be able to hold out!

    Something off about the alt mode. Maybe too flat? IDK. I'm not digging this one just yet.

    And that's with his legs extended. If you went with the squat transformation he'd be even shorter.

    He looks great! The perfect partner for my TW Cosmos.
    Please ToyWorld, just don't mess the colours up. Seaspray is white, blue and yellow. Nice and bright, easy peasy! OK? o_O

    Didn't you do a digibash of one of the other Seasprays with the metalic colors? Looks like TW is stealing your ideas...

    Oh...guess I just got used to you doing all the digibashes. :) 

    That's going to drive me nuts. I'm going to find it...

    Edit: Found it. Sorry, confused you with @Psychoshi. Was in the FT Seaspray thread.

    I've looked at some screengrabs and must say that I'd prefer a solid mouth plate without breathing holes. The face should be darker, too.

    Yeah, I'm surprised the Toyworld face has gotten a free pass to this point.

    It's a deal breaker for me. That and the odd color choice.

    I'm surprised so many ppl want a heroic/athletic Seaspray. It just doesn't look right to me.

    I just really hope they change the colour to more bold and less metallic.

    This Seaspray looks like he'd fit right in a Bioshock game, and I'm not sure if that's a compliment or not.

    Sticking to fans toys on this one I can see where tiger blade and others are coming from but I was always a fan of the UK marvel comics first and the cartoon second and I feel fantoys fills that role more for me

    FT's offering looks like a very good figure just not a very good Seaspray. Looks like how he might look if he hit the gym after his girlfriend left him or something.

    Yeah. Good news are the bones are awesome, so if you're into customizing a quick putty and few shots of yellow and white will make this figure damn near perfect. The gun sucks though!

    Well @Psychoshi I sent your Digibash to TW over Weibo and directly through email. They've decided to use it as the template for the final figure, so expect to see these colors or at least something very close to it.
