    Omg! God Neptune is awesome! I never knew the story behind any of the characters from that cartoon. I only knew the G1 Seacons. It would be great if they had the Gold/White/Blue repaint. The Tentikill mould will never be rhe same for me. :)

    Thought so- Gilph? Umm....what?
    That does beg the question on if it'll be the G1 Pink/Lavender/Blue colors of Pirahnacon or the BW2 White/Blue/Gold colors of God Neptune. I want both, but if it's G1 colors, then I'll need a second tentakil just to become her.
    *Checks*
    Huh. It seems a Nautilater redeco was missing for God Neptune. Has anyone found his part in the silhouette? This is increasing my hopes for both sets, but I know that will end with me in tears!!

    This release will be g1 colors, the torso is named turtler which is snaptraps Japanese name, though considering Takara did baldigus/ruination a bw2 god Neptune wouldn’t be out of the equation

    Apparently there are six Selects Seacons, so we're talking Piranacon/King Poseidon (and 'Turtler's' definitely a giveaway:D '). Saying that, we should almost definitely see a God Neptune at some point. And I'll bet Scylla will be actually a remold of Tentakil instead of just a straight repaint with pink lipstick:) .

    Just you wait. They will release all 6 Seacons and I will buy them without question (like the mindless fanatic consumer I am). Then they will release God Neptune as a box set, then...

    Nah, the best is when they put out the selects and then they all come out at the regular price point as part of the normal WfC: Part 3 in a year and a half.

    Sorry, I meant that Turtler is the leader of the 'King Poseidon' Seacons. His 'God Neptune' counterpart is Half-Shell. And apparently some people are seeing six Seacons in a teaser silhouette.

    Oh ok, right on... Yeah, I my self don't see Overbite at all ( idk why?) But instead see five SeaCons holding Turtlers handgun and Like UW Computron/UW BALDIGUS, it looks to be combined with the other Four SeaCons individual weapons.. But I may be wrong, I just doubt the theory that Nauhtilators Arthropods legs wrap around the four arm of Overbite serving as a right arm.. The ? In my mind is if I'm right? , then were is Overbite? Lol.. It would be a Hasbro move to not release five deluxe, ( not an I hate Hasbro statement either, because I don't.) And unlike TT ( just an opinion) I'm very distressed by this..00
    And if that's the case, will Hasbro sell them via Hasbro Pulse? If they them selves have plans for them... ? I doubt it, I personally want them ASAP, lol so I'd be in the camp of buying them with inflated price verses waiting Gods know how long, and I'd really be kicking my self if I missed out on the assumption that Hasbro may release them and then it not happen :(  if Hasbro Pulse imports them for us that to Me speaks volumes that there letting TT have it by filling in the empty spots in our collections with the SeaCons... Does anyone know if TT has created a sales space online and is importing Hasbros Generations Selects, such as Red Swoop and Ricochet?

    The fact that they may not import all of our GS figures is disarming, because we all hope and pray Hasbro imports theirs, but thinking they may not frightens the crap outta me :/

    They may not care as much about things like combat megatron. If you think about it the majority of the exclusives hasbro has made since titans return have been released over there
    Brainstorm
    Grotusque and repugnus
    Wreck-gar
    Nemesis prime
    The clones
    Punch/counterpunch

    Honestly the only recent pre wfc exclusive I can think of off the top of my head that they didn’t get was titans return arcee, and she’s a reference to something that doesn’t really pertain to the Japanese market. I’d expect a few of our selects are similar

    Right, so you have faith in the fact Hasbro will import them? Odd that Hasbro chose to import Star Convoy considering we had no connections to it here in regards to our G1 lines / lore.

    Cause I would be morally obligated to buy it! I’ve seen how cool they are and can’t possibly turn a blind eye. Thus making me broke. And I was supposed to be done after Orthia.
