    Sounds promising! Just received their Cosmos today, and I'm very happy him. Will gladly give this guy a shot. Any thoughts on the release time frame?

    Oh my god, thank you so much for doing this, We really appreciate it. I thought no way would TW care to give us proper colors, but now, I am very hopeful and happy.

    @Psychoshi thank you for doing the digibash and sharing it here, you are da man!

    No idea on the time frame yet, but there is a show in Beijing soon where TW is going to show off some new stuff (more Bruticus and possibly some Superion too), I think we'll find out more on Seaspray there.

    I try! I just want good toys too....and frankly I can't believe I want a TW Seaspray over an FT one. I would have smacked you last year if you told me that.

    Thanks to both of you. An alternate face without breathing holes on the mouthplate would be the icing on the cake. :bowdown: 

    And Dr. Wu or Tecrom better start designing that Alana figure now!

    Wow nice job by TW! Like many others have said, the FT and XTB designs just don't capture the character, but this is the best so far. I would prefer flatter, brighter colours but it's not a deal breaker. Love the translucent window parts on the feet but not on the chest (how about putting some smaller squares on the sides of the chest instead?).

    Basically though I'm just glad that someone is doing an accurately chubby Seaspray!

    Looks pretty good. I love the chubby design. Just torn about his size. I know he's a pretty large hovercraft, I assume the size of Optimus Prime. But his alt-mode will only be slightly larger than Bumblebee. He'll probably be the most out of place (in terms of size) alt-mode in my entire MP collection. But I guess I can get around that by just keeping him in robot mode.

    That's a big boy! Those that like large minibots should be pretty happy with that.

    Both these guys look substantial in height and in bulk, I think they nailed bot size. By contrast FT's Seaspray looks not only skinny but also very small in their pics next to MP Bumblebee.

    I was waiting for XTB's Cosmos, but these two TW offerings look so good together I might just have to pick them both up!

    They aren't really that large though, just chunky. BC Brawn is taller than Cosmos for example.

    This looks fantastic though, really nail that fat boy look Seaspray had.

    This news makes me happy! :) 

    He looks great!
    And a nice fit alongside Cosmos, who, despite his flaws, I really like a lot.
    I'd love it if TW brought the production of this guy forward, I have no interest in their Kup, Jazz or Springer. Please crank Seaspray out soon!
    Going on how I'm liking these TW minibots, I'd love it if they tackled Powerglide next. I'm not interested in an XTB Powerglide, but a TW one just might work for me.
    Also, another option for Beachcomber would be nice too.

    I think I might go for FT Cosmos and TW Seaspray. I really like the size and proportion variation of them both and also compared with the other minibot cars like Bumblebee, Beachcomber, Gears, Brawn etc.

    They certainly haven't shown one yet, perhaps they meant the XTB version.

    Sorry everybody! I must have meant XT. I know I saw someone doing a nice big one. Larger than Bumblebee but smaller than BC Warpath. I think it comes with an abducting cow gimmick too. :D
