Here's my Blastoise (digibash). the robot form kinda weird.
needs Tentacruel, Mantine, and Clawitzer as limb buddies. Not sure what else could fit with the Seacon molds though....
I was thinking something like this:
Skalor = Relicanth
Seawing = Mantine
Bob Lobclaw/Nautilator = Clauncher or Clawizter
Overbite = Garchomp
Tentakil = Malamar
Malamar fits SO MUCH BETTER with this!!! noice lineup!!
I want Magikarp as Gulf, personally.
Make it a Shadow Magikarp and you got a deal.
Sharpedo is much better to fit it.
Yeah, I couldn't really decide between them, I went with Garchomp because it actually has arms and legs, but then Overbite's head looks more Sharpedo-ish as well.
Not exactly sure what you mean but the seacons so far are mostly true to theyer original toy colors.
Kraken and Lobclaw are the odd ones of the group so far. Kraken for taking some liberties due to it´s transformation, making the chest look different and the colors being more focused on the altmode and Lobclaw for beeing an animation accurate version, which btw also happens to be mostly accurate to the Marvel comics, due to his grey pincers turned into a pale shade of blue in both version.
Gulf and Turtler are as far as I can tell, except for some liberties thanks to the transformation, mostly true to theyer original toys.
Also people shouldn´t forget that the Marvel comics where drawn with a limited color palette, which meant some toy colors couldn´t be translated into the comics partially or entirely.
I for my self like the colors on them as they are now and don´t need mono color abominations like Titans Return Scourge or Blurr were.
But I mostly didn´t like Hasbros Titans Return figures because they all felt a bit too bright to me, which made the colors feel out of place on most of them. Here on the seacons the colors work perfectly but I truely can´t tell why that is so for me.
I agree that TR Scourge monocolor is a waste but that blue has a metallic feel that is better than LG Takara Scourge for character,because more suited for a war theme as Decepticons,at least for me. About Marvel is that with limitations had a feel similar to Hasbro packages of these current years.
Seacons have a great concept but something in them still doesn't convince me maybe excess of Japanese because at the end also Sea Wing is one of best ones. Perhaps something in Snaptrap alt mode is one of things ,head and missiles were cool but remaining thigs,hmmm not sure maybe too organic..,instead in robot in G1 was amazing for that black G1 Optimus head but only that.
I'm ready for wave 3 preorders to go up, so that I can stop monitoring them and rest assured they are all on their way. I'm frankly more excited for these than I am for Unicron, in part because they're a year closer and in part because I'm a sucker for nautical critters.
The price difference between the two doesn't hurt either.
Unless you're army building, of course (and to those of you who are, you have my deepest sympathies)
Don't tempt me!
My guess is early October for wave 3. Just because there was a month between waves 1 and 2...
I wouldn't dream of it!
But, if you happened to buy two extras of any of the currently available limbs you'd have a full combiner a month early, and when the last members of the set come out you can just use them as stationary guns.
It's not army building if you only have two duplicates, right?
Well withing import reseller's pricing. Not Japan MSRP.
what is the regular japanese msrp then? because of late, hasbro has pretty much been directly converting the japanese prices to usd for pulse releases, meaning that turtles is roughly $60 even in japan and the limbs are roughly $35

PRE-ORDER Transformers Exclusive Generation Selects Turtler (Snaptrap)
PRE-ORDER Transformers Exclusive Generation Selects Gulf (Skalor)
PRE-ORDER Transformers Exclusive Generation Selects Lobclaw (Nautilator)

I prefer it to be more like
Turtler = JumboGamemon
Skalor = Coelamon
Seawing = Mantaraymon
Nautilator = Ebidramon
Overbite = Surfimon
Tentakil = Gesomon
it's not perfect
Did I miss BBTS's order for wave 2?
