    Still not feeling these designs. But ah well,  for the foreseeable future these will be our Classics/Generations Seacons.

    This would've been an awesome wallpaper if there was no text.

    Looks better then Hun-gurr's, imo. I like the change & looks more like a knee with armor around it. Rather then a giant knee like Silverbolts.

    Well sir, thats definitely a Takara Import. There is no way Hasbro would charge that much for a voyager, unless it was imported from Japan. You were correct. ;) 

    TCP preorders up now
    Turtler > Transformers Generations Selects King Poseidon (Piranacon): TURTLER (SNAPTRAP)

    Gulf >
    Transformers Generations Selects King Poseidon (Piranacon): GULF (SKALOR)

    I had to deal with that. Ordered full 1st wave of Cyberverse from Hasbrotoyshop. 8 days later toys came loose banging around in giant box w/ absolutely NO packing materials! Ultimate OPTIMUS PRIME came w/ broken hinge that you could see while in packaging. I called & guy said figures IN STOCK he'll set it aside & ill get it in 1 week.

    2 weeks go by, no figure! I call the asshole says "its out of stock. When product is in stock, we will ship it to you" all rude like. I told him what the 1st guy said. He doesn't change his tune. 6WEEKS & FINALLY I get it but its MEGATRON, *sigh*. I call same jerk tells me it only has to be from the same assortment. I tell him "Fuck you! I was promised he was in stock being held for me & id have him 1 week!" I say "I wont order from Hasbro ever again if you guys cant keep your word!"

    VERY NEXT DAY iget call from branch manager of shipping department & she apologizes +immediately ships out the CORRECT Optimus Prime PLUS a "free gift"; A 2008 Classics 2.0 Ultra Class Powerglide (grey with red trim) & she didnt even ask for Megatron back.

    I got the last one on Sunday (IIRC). It arrived yesterday. :D 

    "A whackload of cash" :D 

    Why? To recreate the comic & show/remind fans you can build a full combiner right out the getgo & its ok "canon wise" Im sure Takara did that to advertise, remind fans the possibility, & sell to some ppl the equivalent of a full combiner right out the getgo on 1st wave while at the same time + a comic/storyline to help sell that idea!

    I love that they refuse to draw Primus as anything other than a Rodimus repaint.

    Agreed for the most part, although I'd buy a hip-plate upgrade if it were available (hint, hint 3rd Parties); maybe something along the lines of Crazy Devy's G1 upgrade:

    Edit: Oh yeah, and if they could figure out a way to give him back his iconic fist daggers (while retaining the targetmaster function), that'd be great too:

    The price is very steep and I probably won't be in a huge hurry to buy these. I'm kind of hoping there will be like a set repackage or something first. But hopefully BBTS or another reliable online website will sell them at some point.

    Like tigatron2002 said, it's been covered by other members as well, but his squid-monster mode is basically Moonracer's car-mode stood vertically with the arms out to the side, legs where the rear wheels were, and a giant face stuck to it. The leg mode transformation is exactly the same as well. Also in a few photos you can make out that the entire back half of the torso (the backpack that houses the combiner peg in 'bot mode) is unchanged from the original mould from the details visible on the sides.

    That circled-in area, where would that be in Moonracer (if you can use another visual aid)?

    Pretty sure someone posted a pic of Moonracer in the 'Tentakil configuration', earlier in this thread (maybe that person is listening?)

    TBH, I normally haven't found the Search on here to be all that "quick" (or "functional", for that matter o_O )
    But on this occasion:
    The trick was, I searched this thread for "Moonracer", and @payres post came up :)

    Oh, my gosh. I see it, now. Nice catch on the Fembot base mold!

    So... Hun-Grrr, Blot, Sinnertwin, Cutthroat, and Moonracer as Seacons... Impressive work, Takara-Tomy. Impressive, indeed.

    So Tentakill will be a guy for King Poseidon and a gal in the BW version.

    Yeah, having the Tentakil mold forged from a female template just adds fuel to the potential God Neptune fire..
