    If someone really wants something they will make time to keep up with the news on it, the seacons were available for preorder for a month each pair (pulse only had the last 2 for a week, but other sites had them for far longer), if people really wanted them then they’d have gotten them

    The keyword is 'hobby'.

    You put what time you want into a hobby. Whether you visit a site dedicated to that hobby once a day/ week/ month is up to you and how much you want to put into it. So long as you're happy, it's all good.

    But as for the seacons, they were rumored for months before preorders went up. Waves 1 and 2 had a month open. Wave 3 was shorter, but anyone dedicated to completing the set would be looking for them anyway.

    I had a much easier time getting a complete set of Seacons than I did any CW mainline release combiner. I still technically don't have Defensor, just Defensor with PotP Inferno for the chest.

    After ignoring all the Seacons pre-order news letters from BBTS, TFSource, TTMall, and TFW2005 Twitter feeds, I decided I wasn't going to get the Seacons. I made this decision last year when i decided to get away from Transformers for a while. I changed my mind two weeks ago and I was still able to place an order for the first two waves of Seacons by subscribing to, and reading the threads. I guess i'm just lucky.

    After crunching a lot of numbers, I finally got around to buying Snaptrap as a belated birthday present to myself. (Given how much the Deluxe Seacons are, I think I'd rather wait until I have more in the bank before getting those guys.)

    Also, taxes are the worst. What are they even for?

    Takara did indeed keep the waist swivel from TR Galvatron when they retooled it into Megatron.

    Yep, it was needed to flip the waist around so the panel on the back could fold over his stomach for gun mode.

    Even G1 Galvatron has a waist swivel, for the same reason. He's got good articulation for the era, in fact!

    I'd love to see a picture of the robot mode from the back, just to see how some of it works, the wing attachments, how the weapon plugs in for tank mode and weapon storage, etc. More then that, I'd like to see pictures of him holding the cannon in hand, like the comic. Then finally the Ultra Megatron cannon from the front; it's odd that it looks like it doesn't have yellow detailing on the "emitters" in that mode and it's all flat red.

    It continues to boggle my mind as to why the left bicep is a socket and the right bicep is a post; why aren't they symmetrical?

    Great to know, I got rid of my TR Galvatron long ago since I didn't like the head and hollow feel. Pre-ordered this on pulse.

    Pre-Order windows FTW (IMO). I think people continue to forget or actively ignore the fact that Transformers is a VERY SMALL BUSINESS in Japan. What that means is Takara has to be tight with production otherwise they overproduce and lose money. That means tighter pre-order windows and Get It Now Or Else.

    No one can predict how popular some of these obscure pieces will be, so its up to the fans to be super proactive about getting a copy. I'm still debating on getting Super Megs but I'm well aware of the pre-order cut off date...

    really the preorder windows dont limit supplies unless you ignore the window and want it later or are entirely unaware of the product
