    That’s too bad. I’ll try and enjoy my Seacons twice as much for the both of us. ;)

    Here's how I do it; KING POSEIDON『ウルトラ オーバーキル ターゲットモード』!!!*

    *Ultra Overkill Targetmode

    For anyone who wants to know how to get him to support your preferred Fishgun one handed using Tentakil (the only one who can do it), you basically use his knee pads to sort of hook onto the folded in 5mm foot port on the backside of his squidface kibble, it's surprisingly stable, although it can take a little fine tuning to get just right.

    Thank you. That looks awesome. What part of the “targetmaster” season does he hold? Is it just the combiner part as a “handle”?

    You're welcome. Yeah that's right, the combiner peg plugs into the square port on the back of the hand.

    Are these guys worth the coin? They are currently on sale here in Malaysia for only $33 a pop for limbs and $48 for Turtler.
    Yay or nay? Heard not so good experiences in terms of bad QC in torso mode's leg ratchet connectors and floppy combined mode for King Poseidon. Hmm.

    If you are okay with the possible expectations you mentioned when you get them in hand/know what you are getting, can get all 5 limbs and the torso at the sale price, have the money, collect mainline Hasbro/Takara... I say go for it!

    I don't have the set in hand yet, but they should be arriving any day now! :)

    The last great combiner set to be made in awhile since Takara got shafted by Hasbro. Hmm. Decisions, decisions..

    Where's Takara's OWN, uniquely painted and retooled exclusive main line toys since Legends? None. Nada. Instead they have to put their LG EX stuff on Hasbro Pulse under the bloody pretentious, super limited stock and difficult to sell, over priced "Generations Selects" bullshit.

    How about how transformers sells so poorly in Japan that the majority of mainline releases have gotten relegated to Takara tomy mall exclusives?

    Honestly, I think that description fits TakaraTomy Mall exclusives too.

    They only sell Takaratomy exclusives in limited quantities in JAPAN only. The rest of other collectors in most Asian counturies do not pay as much FYI.

    But how do you know hasbro forced Takara to do anything? In fact the evidence shows that Takara was losing money on doing their own unique decos and toolings for mainline releases

    I thought they were losing money in general. I was under the impression that the merger was done primarily to help Takara cut costs, whose sales were sliding into the gutter.

    These things were made-to-order, not super limited. You were guaranteed to get some if you ordered them.

    Plus I have it on good authority it's possible to buy them in Malaysia for cheaper than you can in North America or Japan.

    Isn't that the same TakaraTomy-supremacist poster that said American's would never get CW deluxe Groove or shuttle Blastoff?
