    I'm honestly shocked that overbite isn't a simple rippersnapper repaint with new head.

    I'll admit, I was one who thought one would be a legends class. Still will be interesting to see how well he holds up a deluxe class figure as a weapon.

    It's true. The only thing Hasbro said did better was unique hands and feet

    There is no way he's going to be able to lift and support that gun.

    So long as the joints are solid, I think he'll at least be able to hold it two-handed in rifle fashion. Prolly can't pull off gun in one hand and trident in the other.

    I didn't want to say anything but, I thought it's hilarious that people doubted that we'd get ALL the limb members as deluxes.

    Just...remember what Hasbro said? The aim of the line is to keep with ORIGINAL GIMMICKS with these characters and well, this is a gimmick for the Seacons. I'm going to trust Hasbro in good faith here as they seem to really want to do as right with nostalgia as they can. Given the whole Brand Unification initiative I saw the Seacons as a natural extension of this.

    Plus, damn it, this is Takara we're talking about. The guys who literally said HELL NO to the new guys in Combiner Wars and presumably refused to do Liokaiser until they could do it right. There was no way they were gonna omit a member or reduce them to only a Legends class figure.

    Same. Also thought one would be legends since holding up a deluxe is a bit difficult.

    I just figured most people figured it was going to be a Legends figure for the gun given weight distribution if anything, so they could easily use the gun member

    I'm happy to be wrong and I'm super looking forward for these guys

    Awesome I am so into this set.
    I just hope they aren't too crazy in the price. Paying a little extra for them separately would be preferable to one giant sum if they're going to go crazy.

    No but it definitely looks compatible with the gun nubs and excess ports.
