    Same for the final two. From what I read upthread, they're coming in any day now. Cannot wait to complete these guys. :D

    True, although I get the artists intent, there's only one Turtler and he's currently in combined form so it wouldn’t really make sense for there to be another one in altmode.

    But you're right; the Unite Warriors boxes all had their members in both modes. Man, thinking back, these boxes were so pretty. I can now see one for the Seacons with this specific artwork on it... so good.

    If you're referring to the art by Kazumasa_yskn, please note that TF Lore - Masterforce, Turtler is the main guy, and the rest are drones.

    Oh we know, @pokemonsdoom just meant that if this would be a boxart for a Unite Warriors box there would have to be a Turtler in altmode somewhere as well because those boxarts had all members in both modes - even though they can't obviously exist twice like that at the same time ;)

    Probably still won't. This is King Poseidon, not US version Piranacon.

    I mean - the other Combiners don’t have all drones for limbs in Japanese fiction but are still drawn twice on each box, as a part of the Combiner and in altmode. Pretty sure that’s a trend they would’ve continued, but we will never know sadly.

    Exactly, for example how many Mega-empress and her four guards, a Japanese character exist? One set. Yet the box shows 2 sets of guards and two mega empress' if go by the canon logic one set should be gone of both. Ergo that image of king Poseidon if it were to be a perfect unite warriors style image needs an extra turtler without that key detail. It's an awesome image but not one in Unite Warriors fashion

    I went with Black Natural Versatile Plastic and Medium-length blades (the more G1-proportionate option).
    I'm not too fussed about the grainy look and feel - I'll think of it as battle-damage - as long as the shape, size and colour are on point (which they look to be).

    Man, seeing these gauntlets really brings back memories (something about them apparently really captured my attention as a kid). But at that price (excl. shipping to me) I'm going to wait for the various upgrade sets to come out.

    Those are pretty cool, but honestly I am just hoping someone makes a back pack for him with a combiner port so I can attach Kraken to him from the back to give him some wings, when in torso mode if you swing Snaptraps chest piece around to the bottom of his back there is enough space and enough to work with there to attach something extra between the back cannons to allow for storing the extra combiner limb as a back pack.

    The Japanese katakana spell 'robukurou' (or 'lobukolou') which is intended to be pronounced as 'lobcloh' so it would be a natural mistake to make.

    You can still use one of them in the trident-holding hand.
    Note that this set is designed to be removable - just like primemasters - and doesn't have to be permanently fixed into each fist, thereby sacrificing the ability of said fist to hold the sixth member.
    Personally, I see it as adding options and play-value - same as swapping the sixth member out for the combined gun (which would be when you'd use both blades at the same time).

    Again, I must ask.
    Do we know when that bundle of all 6 is going to be available?
