Soo...............nobody can help me out here? I've done a little research about the Seacons, but I still don't know anything about the new set of them that has been talked about for a long time now.

All I know is that it was supposed to be a Universe release. But I am not %100 certain of that. Sorry, I know others have more info than me!

It's ok. Depending on what they are supposed to be/look like when finally made, I might be interested in them. I've been slowly gaining more interest in combiners and gestalts, lol.

Well, they were supposed to be G1 repaints, I think.

Hasbro kept putting them off, though.

Hmmm....the Universe line would of been the best place for them. If not that the Classics line could of been a nice home for them, lol.

Several years ago, I believe in either 2003 or 2004, Hasbro planned to release a box set as a store exclusive in the Universe line. It was a repaint of the G1 Seacons. My vague recollection is that the primary color scheme was orange and blue. For whatever reason, no retailers wanted them, so they were shelved. For whatever reason, fans attached themselves to this as some kind of pet project (this in spite of reaction to the pictures being mixed at best), and have continued to ask about it every year since. In somewhat unusual fashion, Hasbro continues to claim they're looking for a place to release them even years after they were announced, leading some of the most optimistic among the fanbase to speculate they may have even manufactured them and have them just sitting in a warehouse waiting for the light of day to surface.

Glad to hear the 6" Titaniums may yet come out somehow or another. I dinna care how, I'll buy 'em. Deluxe Insecticons Reborn sounds good. Seacons...meh. I was never big on the color scheme in the first place, ranking a solid third behind the other two.

I actually don't like the idea of Leader Class toys in the box set. Most of the Leaders get the double dip already, to varying degrees of success. I tend to pick what I deem the better of the two precisely because I don't want two of such a large toy. I'd rather it stay just like it is, more toys centered around a Voyager or Ultra.

All I am legitimately interested in is the Sentinel Prime repaint of CDHS? (Is that the correct acronym, I can never get these things straight.)

Like, how would that have worked, I wonder. Surely, not the green/lessgreen/moregreen deco we ended up getting.

Doubtful, but any more information on this strange almost-had?
