    I still haven't messed with my set yet. What quality control issues are there with the weapons breaking?

    Pegging together the trident can lead to cracked plastic around the holes. Can't recall exactly which one(s) were vulnerable, but be careful and make holes larger as needed.

    Edit: Generations Selects Seacons in color says Tentakil's trident-piece hole is too small.

    My set only just arrived at my retailer last week. Apparantly (according to tfs-express) there was a 3 month delay from Hasbro Asia..

    Mine have been fine without breaking. I dunno, maybe YMMV.

    Unfortunately true. The shoulder ratchets that becomes the legs can barely hold him to stand.

    Of them, there's only a few that would actually break anything and both are easy fixes. The rest seem to be annoyances more than anything.

    I don't think the weapons cracking issue is widespread at all. Didn't hear about it until someone mentioned it in here as above more recently. I haven't had to sand or change anything at all. Everything fits just fine here. Even my son hasn't cracked anything yet, and he would have clearly broken something by now.

    There's not really much in terms of fixes in general either. Seacons inherit the old combiner system, which is heavily flawed and inherently unstable. The new feet can't fix it either.

    If you must, you can always use floor polish to tighten some of the joints. I haven't bothered to do that with the Seacons and don't care about using floor polish anymore to fix figures. I knew that and still bought them on purpose as well as God Neptune on pre-order.

    Yes. I used to order from them all the time. They’re all sold out though. Boy I’m glad I preordered all of mine through Pulse last year...

    Yep. Looks like if I want them, I'm just going to have to bend over and take it. Absolute asinine decision to make these such a limited item while making God Neptune the easier version to get.
