    Speaks for itself. SDCC Blaster or BBTS seacons. I can't afford to get both with all the other new stuff coming out.

    good question I go the Blaster as the seacons are likely to be eaiser to find at retail price in the future than that Blaster set.

    That's good to know. I'll be going MISB either way. The fact that blaster will be hidden by a flap is a factor for me. If I had SDCC Soundwave, it would be clenched, but I don't. Also, I have G1 Blaster, but the ears are broken and I don't have any of the cassettes.

    I like the Seacons more, but there is a 15% off coupon in the Deals thread for Hasbrotoyshop, so I would go with Blaster using the coupon right now and save up for the Seacons in the future.

    I tried that coupon last night and it wasn't working. The 10% one works though.

    Like you said, Blaster might be gone any day and I'm thinking that BBTS is going to have the Seacons forever. Any thoughts on that?

    If your going to buy Both... Blaster and then the Seacons. Blaster, like you said will sell out long before King Poseidon does. Plus, BBTS had to sell some of its supply to Digital toys and tfsource... so what does that say?

    THEY HAVE A SHIT LOAD OF THEM AND THE FIRE SALE WILL HAPPEN NEXT YEAR WWWWOOOOOO:lol 

    EDIT: But if your only going to get one... buy the Seacons, that toy is well worth it

    Blaster is pretty boring. Boxy robot boom box is boxy.

    Get the fishy combiners.

    Since you are leaving them MISB, the better display piece would be the Seacons. If you are going for a higher eventual value, go for Blaster, since it seems like the Seacons are going to be around for a while.

    BBTS has ~1800 of the Seacon sets left, so they'll probably have those hanging around for a bit still. Blaster is probably more likely to sell out first, since I'd imagine a Con exclusive would have a lower production run than a retailer exclusive. So, based on which is more likely to sell out first, get Blaster now. Based on quality of figure, though, the Seacons are much nicer.

    The Seacons are much more satisfying than Blaster

    while I like neither.

    I'd suggest you go for the reissue BBTS.com seacons. because you get six figures & there combiners.

    I think I'm getting Blaster today, but only because I'm going to have time to get the Seacons after a couple of paychecks. I'm still kicking myself for not getting SDCC Soundwave when it was cheap.

    I have both, so it is hard for me to say which one.
