Looks to be just sitting on Turtler's wrist/arms... Not really attached to the Combiner.
Unless you go by the instructions I grew up on.
(Which are the only correct ones.)
Found an unopened set on YJA for $330, figured what the hell and picked up another set. If I end up not wanting it, I'm sure I can get my money back. To bad it's going to take 3 months to get here....
Got it so the toy config was scalor as an arm and Nautilator as a leg while Masterforce the opposite. Overbite is the gun in both cases.
"Toy config" itself is rather nebulous as I think boxart left out Nautilator entirely...
Though the BBTS re-issue used the same config I grew up with.
And then there are those who'll typically put Nautilator and Seawing as the same limb type with Skalor and Tenta-Kill as the other because those two have similar colors so look good that way. In that case, Overbite is the gun because his colors don't really go with anyone else.
So whatever config you go off, I think most people grew up with Overbite as the "designated gun."
Which is fine, because he looks best that way.
I never paid any attention to any configs. I just put them together wherever & never even thought about it. That goes for every combiner.
I put this in another thread as well. The Marvel US comic (and from what I remember most/all of the UK), Overbite was the gun. The only time I ever remember Overbite being an arm in the US was that Dreamwave profile. I know the character/cartoon model of Piranacon has Nautilator as the arm. The Seacon instructions (white sheets) had Overbite as the gun, but Nautilator was a leg and Skalor was an arm. Piranacon giftset instructions had Overbite as a leg. The only time I can think of Overbite being an arm pre-Dreamwave was the giftset art. The model sheet I attached below is the model sheet that was in the back of the Marvel comics issues (aka Universe Bio) and is the same model used for the cartoon (well commercial really). It is different than the Japanese model sheet. Also the UK tended to use the same model sheets for the comics as well. Again, basically the only place that has Overbite as an arm is from Dreamwave and that is what TFwiki is using, but in reality, among it's many incarnations, it's not actually that way. Even the Marvel Universe bio even mentions Overbite as a gun. "He wields a jawbreaker cannon (which is actually the weapons-base mode of the Seacon Overbite), which shoots powerful metal-eating, salt-based corrosives."
I bought all of the Seacons because I only had Nautilator growing up and always wanted the entire set. Plus I missed out on the reissue from BBTS (and the mass sales to unload them). All of the different "official" combinations of Piranacon/King Poseidon has killed my brain since I like keeping the combiners in their official combined form. Just like the Lego UCS TIE Fighter (up till this set, I would build all of my Lego sets with most of the studs having their logos face two directions), think this group will break me of this habit and let me just enjoy a toy set however I please. Either that or I'll just keep fiddling with it to each different version when I get bored with one look. Even add in the awesome modes people have come up with in this thread. I love these designs!
overbite sold out
And with that, the great seafood rush of 2020 comes to an end.
here are better pics of the attachment. I’m open to better ways!
He is holding on to guns plugged into the swiveling ports under snap trap’s armpits. Fills out his torso a bit as well.
Unless now God Neptune is dubbed an exclusive Ocean Variety Platter.
Just curious: Are those copies being shipped internationally? I've had a package from Japan Post sitting in shipping limbo for months ever since the quarantine started, so I'm surprised to see some are still getting figures shipped across the pond.
I haven't decided if I am opening my set just yet. For those who have, are the black boxes like the 4 companions that I received from Hasbro inside the boxes seen in my pic? I saw a forum member begging for slipcovers so I am a bit confused as to what I might find.
Are you able to pose the combiner dynamically?
Uploading pics shortly.

hows this? It doesn’t interfere with the posing. Overbite’s shark legs can be used to stabilize him a bit.
I posted pics above.
Nice, think I like that way even better
