Well, there's the head without new tooling.
He's mainly red as well?
Well, that limits what molds Sea Clamp can be to a disappointingly limited range.
Really? Looks like a new head mold to me.
Show accuracy's a bitch.
They picked the wrong thing to go show accurate on.
Huh. So Ciciadacon will have an unaltered head. Which means Sea Clamp and Predacus will have new heads.
Was really hoping for a Galvatronus torso on this guy.
Nope, that's definitely Skydive's default head. Which is a good thing, since it means Predacus will have a brand new head!
This would have to leave Sea Clamp to be either Onslaught or Motormaster/Prime. I *really* hope it's Onslaught. There's a lot more options there for colors and ways to plug in accessories that would look like Tripredacus even with the red color scheme.
Unless they pull some bizarre retooling out of left field with Sky Lynx. I really really want them to use Victorion's feet for Predacus, as they look like Sea Clamp's claws....so if there's a way to tool Onslaught so he has them I would love to see what they can come up with.
Meanwhile, this was the first thing I thought of with that use of red and white.
DAMMIT! Why did they make him red?? Ugh... I mean, I know why, but... Ugh...
I'm also torn. I'm pretty sure I'd throw my money at FunPub now if the first few reveals were toy accurate colors.
As it is, I'm really hoping that whatever the combined mode looks like...it has enough secondary color to break up the red.
How is it news that he's red? After the Ramhorn reveal, I thought it was obvious the council would all be the red and white/grey deco.
I wonder if they got inspired by that scorpion fanmode someone did for Hot Spot, and just made it into a lobster of some kind.
That said, disappointed as I am, really digging how they painted Cicadacon's chest to be his silver mantle from the show.
I was just hoping he'd be green, purple, and white..
Thread, for reference. And also, the specific post.
I switch my vote. Hot Spot as Sea Clamp with *this* configuration called out and painted as an official third mode.
And people say there's no way they could get beast molds/modes out of existing CW figures...
As a fan mode it's fine, but as an official mode.......no.
So we have 2 of the 3 of the council. Question is which voyager figure will they use for the base.
And yet some official modes are just that....
Just to counter all this "why is he red?" stuff (lest FunPub do some kind of last-minute color switch because no one felt the need to say "we actually like it this way!"), I disagree with those who think these toys should have been Tripredacus toy colors. To me, those are entirely different characters that just happen to share names.
Much as I'd dig the toy colors myself, this DOES follow the same logic of making Obsidian his show colors instead of his toy colors.
Also, the original Tripredacus toys are still there, and are STILL highly poseable combining toys.
Separate names with a comma.
