Yup. And the toon matches the 6-member version box art.
Here's the two versions:
Based on the art sans Nautilator, it almost makes me wonder if the light pink on Tentakil and Skalor was going to be the same purple used on Overbite before it was changed. As Snaptrap still has the light pink and their light pink is much darker and more purple.
Here is what doesn't make sense to me. Look at the bottom of Overbite's feet. They each have 3 peg holes for weapons.
Tentakil needs those holes on the bottom of his feet but doesn't have any. So I drilled my own holes.
Now here's the weird part. Tentakil's shoulders are molded in blue plastic. The legs on top are molded in light pink & totally painted blue. Don't paint apps cost extra money? Why the hell didn't they just mold them in blue? The holes I drilled look like shit & now I have to repaint them. In Beast mode you can't even see anything but in robot mode they look terrible because of the pink plastic that should've been blue.
On Skalor they put peg holes on the inside of the arms. WTF???
So I simply drilled through all the way. And again, instead of casting it in pink they cast it in blue & painted the entire piece in a totally different color. Doesn't that waste money for no reason? Forcing us to pay more?
Now he can do this:
And when I put the sword together I heard a SNAP. One of the parts cracked. This isn't a problem & the sword holds together fine. But it shows the shit quality of Takara products compared to the insane fucking prices they're charging. Their Maserpiece figures break. Their Microman figures disintegrate & crumble apart. Unite Warriors Motormaster's waist crumbles. And now this. And everybody defends their bullshit prices. I don't think these figures are worth anywhere near the prices they're charging. Now watch Aoyi Mech make bigger & better versions for only $18. Like they did with Abominus.
And now on ebay they're charging $500 or higher for this set. That's the same price as the 3rd party version. And they're all voyager class.
I'm happy to have this set because combiners are the most important thing to me. But This release has been nothing but a huge clusterfuck & a headache since day 1. I should be feeling elation but instead I'm just feeling relief that it's finally over & I can put it all behind me.
I had the same thing happen when assembling the sword the first time too.
I think those holes are from where they inject the plastic for the mold
I highly doubt that
If that includes shipping $500.00 for a set is acceptable. I got all mine from Japan, DHL shipping cost not included totaled at around $325.00 for all 6 'cons.
I think I've found a configuration for all the weapons that I'm most satisfied with. I kinda hate tjat its either the 5th deluxe as a gun or the combined super gun, but not both. I was going with targetmaster mode + attaching each accesory to its corresponding toy, but Snaptrap's BFG was getting left out, so I combined everything best I could and that it doesn't becone too long of a weapon.
That’s clever, pal! Thank you.
Success! King Poseidon is complete. Now we need an Earthrise Metalhawk to give him much hurting!
I moved too slow on Tentakill but Overbite just arrived. Still holding out hope to finish the team though.
Mmmm! Oh, there goes your brother.
Oop, there's your Uncle.
Oh, there goes your fiancé.
Aaaand thread won.
Got the last two I needed. Tentakil is looser than a two dollar hooker
I know the feeling big buddy! I almost lost Turtler due to my stoopid eyesight issues.
Sick and yummy!
Yes! I remember that!
They still charge at those bottom of the barrel prices?
It's odd that in artwork and appearances Nautilator is an arm and Overbite is the gun whilst the bios specifically give reasons for why Nautilator should be the gun.
Everyone needs to eat.
It's sad the toy just feels cheap and weak.
Seems like a common issue now. They mix the plastic too fast or different quality plastic?
I figure the bios came out after the toy designer worked on the team. Toy-wise, Overbite should clearly be the gun, since he is both the most gun-shaped of them and is uniquely colored. (the only purple Seacon----and both Menasor and Devastator have purple guns----thus Piranacon's just following that trend). Making Overbite a limb doesn't quite mesh with the coloring of the combined bot.
