Hasbropulse had tentakil back up for preorder a couple weeks ago. Not sure if still there
Well shoot... we nearly gotta whole set!
I managed to grab Tentakill from Pulse when he went back up (he's been shipped and is on his way now), I also have Snaptrap, Skalor, and now Nautilator and Seawing on pre-order with BBTS. Just need Overbite and I'll finally have my favorite combiner.
Still debating if I want to track down and shell out the money for God Neptune. I like him but I've got enough crap to get next year.
At this rate it may be worth seeing if they reissue him later. If all these Seacons are coming back in stock, Neptune may too.
That's about where I'm at with them, I personally prefer the colors of the standard seacons, but I really like the mold use for Scylla. I'd also like if they did some kind of Nautilator to go with them just for fun (I recall seeing people talk about the possibility of one named Lobhammer but don't know where that rumor came from).
The Loverhammer rumors started once he was introduced in the Takara Selects comic, especially after they show how whoever upgraded the Space Pirates from their "G1" bodies to the new Selects versions took Lovehammer as some kind of payment/sacrifice.
The theory is that he's going to come back at some point, whenever they reveal who it was upgrade the Space Pirates and what they were aiming for. My hope is it's the Vok (they're known for giving corpses upgrades...*ahemtigerhawkahem*) and they release one based on the Judge mold.
Tigatron and Airazor weren't corpses when the Vok merged them into Tigerhawk
The shadow figure who took Lovehammer in exchange for giving Halfshell a second chance didn´t upgrade the pirates. It was Halfshell himself who upgraded himself and his crew after more or less testing the upgrades on Turtler and the Seacon drones.
You're right, they only took Lovehammer as a payment of sorts for helping save the Seacons when they were adrift in space.
I'm hoping for a Grand Galvatron situation where he's one of the limbs. Placing bets for Starscream Torso, Buster and Hydra, Lovehammer and a fouth guy using a Dinobot mold.
According to the TFWIKI it was the Golden Starscream on behalf of Primus, but I'm personally a bit skeptical about that. I don't remember any defining features in the shadow to hint at it.
So did anyone know that this foot mold had ratcheted forward and back ankle articulation?
(and less importantly that the toes come off?)
Since Piranicon, yes.
Dunno when but TFSafari finally sold out of Turtler / Snaptrap.
Got Loblaw and Seawing in from the Pulse reissue. How come they can’t spell Lobclaw’s name correctly?
Well this is Japan we're talking about, the land of...
Unfortunately, that forward/back movement creates a combiner that falls over; had issues with Poseidon and Neptune.
Agree. Only improves aesthetics and did nothing for balance and stability.
Not expecting much from the upcoming new Volcanicus feet either.
When I had mine in combined mode it allowed stances other than just the basic A stance. Just have to adjust the hip ratchets appropriately to maintain balance.
Came to this party late. Got the four that are available on Pulse. Any expectation that Pulse will restock Tentakil and Overbite at this point? Or should I resign myself to eBay?
I like displaying my combiners with the leg bots extended to give the combiners extra height. Ive found that the forward and back tilt is perfect for doing this with the Tentakil mold because of the angled 5mm port on the top of the squid's head. I can just angle the joint and boom, no more tilt and its creates a straight leg.
