    Which pretty much means any of the deluxes can be a gun.

    Eh, I was going to post about my lack of satisfaction of these guys, but other posters will complain about how unreasonable I'm being.

    ...I guess I'll just wait till someone fan-modes turret/weapon modes in their proper orientation. =/

    They actually went for the full targetmaster gimmick...they really are serious about this combiner. Now I hope they found a way to make the weapons usable, these guys need joints far stronger than the CW bots for this to work.

    The only way this could be more awesome is if all six could combine into an enormous weapons platform for a Leader-class figure or something. Or if they could all Weaponize onto a single figure for equally ridiculous firepower.

    Pretty much. Which comes to think of it... It's sorta in the same fashion as inserting an combiner peg into the same square prime/titanmaster hole found in Prime Armors.

    Very impressive, these Seacons are gorgeous sculpts. Tentakil's ugly mug especially. I wish they had more room for a display though, it’s awfully cramped in there and with all the grey prototypes and their rich level of sculpted detail it’s a bit of a visual overload.

    I'd love to buy this as a gift set, but I'm conflicted if I should hold out for a God Neptune repaint instead. While King Poseidon looks great and there's no guarantee they'll ever repaint an expensive set like this, the Seacons from Super-God Masterforce are just blank pages for me. But the Seacons from BWII - I love those hilarious, double-crossing scallywags.

    ...

    I'm gonna end up buying both, aren't I?

    Good god almighty.
    This thing is frickin’ GORGEOUS.
    That face on Tentakil is amazing.

    I really don’t care if it is over $200, I must have it. Bring on Monstructor.

    Yes, I've never understood the point of this site having you click on a link, just to have to click on another link!

    Does anyone know if we’ll be getting them internationally yet? Or are they Japan/Takara only right now as far as we know?

    So amazing that all the limb guys are being done as deluxes.
    They all look great.
    The only minus seems to be the spindlyness of Snaptrap's torsomode.
    But I'm sure Dream Weave will provide us with a kit that falls apart into a hundred little pieces you can use as the most crappy weapons ever.

    Is it just me, or these feel like... kitbashes? Very good ones but kitbashes nonetheless. It\'s often really obvious how they twisted a Terrorcon mold into new shape and the end result is none too pleasing, especially Nautilator and Seawing. And I dislike how angular the beast modes are. The G1 Seacons were streamlined and curved, which made sense for undersea forms. Here only Tentakil looks like they made an effort. Honestly, glad we are getting these but would not be surprised if in a few years Hasbro made a new one, like they did with the targetmasters instead of releasing Takara\'s molds

    Yeah, the back looks pretty good! Here’s a couple more pics:

    I like that simple solution as well. And if you wanted to have it look like he’s clenching the guns in his fist, all you’d need is a 5mm rod to go from thumb to combiner peg hole.

    Also, way too much partsforming. Both Skalor and Nautilator have removable tails.
    Don\'t get the comments about \"Unicron or this\"... These will be separate releases and only coming end of the year. Unicron preorder is end of August. Surely you can earn enough in the time between.

    A-maz-ing! Will get. That Big Convoy looks cool too and I only ever had the Nemesis Prime repaint.

    The only thing I don't like is the full on hands on the heels.
    Let's hope he's not prone to falling backward so I can chuck 'em in a drawer.
    (The Drawer of Purgatory, perhaps?)
