    Screw it. If BBTS doesn't get these guys later down the line, I think I'll just go with TFSource if I want to nab the Seacons.

    You'll note that the Seacons on Hasbro Pulse all say Sold Out if you click on their respective pages.

    Also as you search for them (and they begin to pop-up) it says Sold Out in red there too.

    The last 3 months of Seacon reveals have been on the 2nd of the month without fail, I’d bet Super Megatron will be the same (so Saturday morning?)

    The only difference is for the last three months the 2nd has been a weekday, so they ‘could’ wait till Monday morning & show him then, but I’d say no longer than that. I also expect the next part of the comic Takara has been doing then too (maybe teasing God Neptune?)

    Additionally, the Takara ‘Raiden’ project is scheduled to be shown off on the 3rd of December too, so if it’s new Trainbots they show they’d be Takara’s early December reveal too!

    And then January will be the proper reveal of Armada Optimus Prime! (Shamelessly wishful thinking!)

    It wouldn’t surprise me! I just look at Armada Optimus as we had a sneak preview of him earlier in the design process than we usually do.

    Super Megatron was teased back in early April along with Star Convoy & Snap Trap, & we still haven’t seen more than a blacked out shadow so far!

    Plus, look at Masterpiece Hound... July 2018 he was revealed & it’ll possibly be January 2020 when he’s released, that's 18 months! We may still see Armada Optimus fully revealed & released in less time than that :D

    That's more then I paid for my Japanese version (1st release) SOUL OF CHOGOKIN GX-71 GOLION. I know it goes for $399.99 now, & even more in many places. I stayed up 3 freakin days to be able to its secure preorder at the $187.41USD price. Those preorders sell out in less then 10 mins, so i was super lucky i didnt fall asleep, lol!

    But i just preordered GX-88 DAIRUGGER (Vehicle Voltron) for $339.00 at bigbadTS yesterday so i know all about todays costs.

    ANYWAYS yeah $230 for some weak plastic Seacons (just like the rest of Combiner Wars line im sure) is rough.

    Criticizing Takara is pretty much asking to be stoned.

    We don't know for 100% sure it will be "weak" plastic. It's usually best to hold criticism until you have the item in hand. They may have improved things, or they may be the same.

    Yeah CWs was really cool, I agree! I collected all Hasbro versions except still missing a Hot-Spot to finish my Defensor/Protectobots. & I never got Wildrider (exclusive) but i did the other exclusives (skydive, Groove, Blast Off). Even got 2 Takara sets, Airealbots & Devastator.

    BUT the combiners didnt pose/stand up too well. Joints couldn't handle the weight in most cases. POTP Starscream & CW wave 1 Airealbots (ones came out BEFORE they hit retail before comics wr in packaging/before hit Walmart) were the only 2 combiners that had solid figures & solid Combiners besides Devastator, in my case.

    Unlike Siege line which have good plastic & goodjoint tolerances thrkughout. If SEACONS come out as good as Siege then awesome. Im already buying all 3 sets, anyway. I just hope the money wr paying pays for good figs thats all

    I didn't i was agreeing with someone that the price is high for a Combiner Wars like toy. And we keep getting combiners from them & they all are generally the same its just a bit high priced. You dont need to be so rude.

    Also im getting them too. I was in the hospital with no phones aloud for 3rd set, but i have 2 sets preordered.

    What kind of shit is this? Rude man. And obviously you misunderstood me ...again. Stop attacking ppl its fucking stupid.
