    It's from Masterforce. Don't remember which episode.

    Lobclaw's Lob Bomb as seen on his Claw Blog.

    If I'm reading the wiki correctly: This one.

    Yeah, at this point its just clowns trying to get the last word aka "and stay out" then high 5's other bitter trolls.

    Which begs the question if it's even about the Seacons at this point. Like if I change my mind a week from now and say I'm buying this set (I've done it in the past). Will embittered clowns still be lurking in the shadows waiting to pounce on the 1st "flaw" they can see next time...

    That's probably the real narrative. ‍

    "Other bitter trolls." So, care to rock-paper-scissors on if you're gonna be the pot or the kettle this time?

    Maybe it's best to move on. Nothing to be gained by the back and forth bickering.

    I just hope the window opens soon for three and four. I have the first two pre-ordered from BBTS, but would like the get the rest from HasbroPulse.

    So it looks like Nautilator and Skalor share the Blot mold as a base. How do their transformations differ then?

    The legs are different too - Skalor's fold up on the back like Blot, Nautilator's just compress.

    I feel like Nautilator is the Y and Skalor is the M.

    Are you aware of any current discounts on Pulse? That could be a game changer for Turtler and Gulf for me anyway.

    Turtler and Gulf are no longer available through Pulse as of 8/27. All preorders had to be in by EOD on that date. The figure listings are still up but Pulse lists them as unavailable once you try to process your cart

    It goes both ways.

    - I see the stock image, or the price, or both, and balk. Nope, not getting it. But while in Walmart, Target, wherever, in person, impressive, must have it after all. Quite a few Transformers from CW/TR/PotP/Siege were this way for me.
    - Or I'll preorder it from BBTS/Pulse/etc, prototype/stock image was awesome, but so disappointed after opening it. Buyer's remorse, feel ripped off. Super7 MOTU He-Man Filmation was this way, that plasticy skin really sucks. Hoping I can matte it sometime, but I should have to pay $50 for a cheap crappy figure.

    Most are good, or bad, I called it right the first time.

    Hoping my Seacons call is the right one. Preordered ... even if the price sucks.

    This time Hasbro/Takara got me, next time they might not. More money sped, more critical, more weight to pros/cons. Not like it was in the old Kaybee or Big Lots days, even Walmart 10 years ago, where I could grab something for $5-10 on a whim. When we're talking $25, $50, $75 each, feeling less whimsical.

    I've got mine on Pulse, but find it odd that BBTS took down the listings and never put them back up.

    I guess that's the best way to snag impulse buyers and avoid leftovers.

    If that's the case then "Well played..." I still have the G1 BBTS Seacon set which I'll keep in alt mode whenever I need'em.
