    Fingers crossed the final reveals are within the next two weeks.

    Only another week before the pre-order ends on Pulse for the second set of two.

    Wow, almost over already? It'd be a good thing to let people know. I know a bunch of people have probably forgotten about these guys. Some people missed the first set because they didn't realize about the time limit.

    I'm hoping for the last two Seacons to be revealed before the end of October. Although what I really want is a November release date!

    King Poseidon is AWESOME...but, he really should have been a Titan Class, he cant even hold up his weapon mode limbs, CW style scramble combiners have their limitations etc

    I don't know that titan class would help, it would just make the gun bot bigger and heavier. TFC's doesn't do too well trying to keep that amount of mass up either. I think the only way to make it work would be to give it a G1eque gun stand to help out.

    And gun stands and spiked fists are the two things I'd really like a 3rd party to add to this set. Guess we'll see if it needs more than that once we get the full reveal.

    I think I’m just going to wait for the eventual KOs of these guys. Especially if the same company that did the KO Predaking decides to do it.

    The fact that these are around double the price and we have a restricted time frame to preorder, or we lose out, pretty much seals it for me.

    You say that as if it's exclusive to the seacons. This is happening to EVERY Hasbro product, and soon even the boxes will be taking a hit (from a collector's perspective) with the environmentally friendly brown boxes without artwork. Physical "Kids toys" are already on the way out for digital devices, leaving more to collectors with deeper pockets and (assumed) a better ability to make cost vs enjoyment decisions.

    TL: DR if you don't want them don't buy them. Keep your money, ignore the toys, and move on instead of bringing down the thread.

    Been saying that in every thread people whine about toys.

    They act like Hasbro/Takara are forcing them to buy toys. It's astonishing, really.

    It's pretty clear Hasbro's Selects are figures that still fit within the regular retail prices but didn't fit into whatever waves they planned while Takara Selects are figures that don't fit into the Hasbro price points (for whatever reason, be it tooling, paint, accessories, etc)

    Also, that translation really does seem to suggest two things:
    1. Turtler and the Seacons are being used a test of combiner tech that Halfshell appears to be supervising. So they're absolutely definitely teasing that there will be a God Neptune down the road.

    2. Galvatron's body is there with Halfshell, and something is happening with him that would hint at that Super Megatron we've been teased being the next thing after the Seacons.

    Not directing this towards anyone in particular, but to those who are still whinging about the price of these, 1200+ comments into this thread:

    So people can bitch about the prices some more? :lol 

    Hopefully they do reissue them. I need Menasor (with stronger plastic on Motormaster) and Defensor.

    See, I would rather buy more of these GenSels rather than Unicron. More playability. I feel like anyone getting Unicron will wind up leaving him in the box, or taking out for display and collect dust until it's time to re-sell on eBay.

    Bring me God Neptune.
