    A very brief and very dirty translation:
    • Primus reveals that the Blue Vanguard only holds part of the Star power, there's 7 colors of power out there.
    • Straxus' reveal that their time in the Blue Vanguard was part of a ploy, they've planted a virus in the entire team and order them to kill Star Convoy and everyone else, including each other.
    • Blue Big Convoy kills himself to prevent himself from killing Star Convoy
    • Straxus declares that they are loyal to "Megatron Omega" and will enact his ambitions.
    • Megatron Omega and the Straxus' leave this universe/dimension. Snap Trap is thanked by the people for saving them, Snap Trap wonders if the BWII Seacons were in on this all along.
    • It gets convoluted here, but essentially the Star power isn't in a single matrix, but each in the colored universe matrices. Megatron Omega has the blue one (from Blue Big Convoy) and the Silver one (Star Convoys)
    • In the White Star, a revived Halfshell attacks the White universe and defeats him, claiming the white matrix.
    • In the Green Star, Sea Phantom attacks for the Green universe, the Green Commander wants peace and nature, but knows he won't get it.
    • In the Red Star, Sentinel Prime, teacher and veteran commander, prepares, and the Matrix Buster is getting ready.
    • Terrormander survives the assault, thanks to his angolmois powerup!
    • In the Yellow Star universe, Scylla doesn't want to fight, tossing out a Angolmois powered kiss.
    • In the Black Star universe, Deadlock wants to face Coelagon, but Go Prime advises him otherwise, citing a past history and that Coelagon is an effective warrior and great swordsman without a powerup.
    • In the Purple Star, Megatron Omega and the Straxus' go to claim the power themselves. Shattered Glass Prime isn't all that confrontational, or bothered by it, he even wonders if Megatron Omega has time to spar with him.
    • Back in the regular universe, Primus shows to Star Convoy that the BWII Seacons (Fish corps) are acting.
    • Angolmois has the power to shape thought into reality, which is why it's reformatted so many beings in the past (Galvatron, Gigastorm, Starscream, etc.)
    • Angolmois is revealed to be the power created by Primacon! He and Primus have contempt for each other.
    • The BWII Seacons return, each with their sent matrix and some extra powerups too. They combine.
    • God Neptune, the Star Power is theirs!
    • The power is theirs, they are a God now!
    • Star Convoy is confused. (What else is new?)

    Looks great I want it. I dont know much about BW2 but I have no problem shoehorning them into a CHUG display. Maybe the KO guts can give us a white lobster just to say it exists.

    I was really hopeful they'd do a recolored Nautilator too. :( 

    I know why they didn't, but a robot lobster in a beautiful color scheme is still a robot lobster in a beautiful color scheme.

    I am totally digging this guy. I was sad that I missed out on King Poseidon, but now not so much. I think that God Neptune pulls this mild off a bit better.

    I hope so. I totally want one. And I don't see how I will be getting one otherwise.

    I hope this happens too. . . Or that nautilator gets repainted as another character. I would just like to have that mold. I like lobsters.

    I am in the same boat.


    They much up the price difference on the shipping i think.

    I like it, I just don't know if I $200+ like it considering I skipped Baldi. That being said, anyone want to let go of their OG BWII God Neptune relatively cheap with this reveal?

    So guys, whats the best place to preorder (once available), other than Hasbro Pulse, that dont requiere paying upfront? Pulse is not an option since they dont ship to Mexico

    BBTS is my main place to do it, but they arent taking orders for Pulse items (still waiting if they honor my Snaptrap preorder)... TFSource also worked for me, but they just charged me for the last set of Seacons and costed and arm and a leg (Ha! bad joke!) and i would like to save as much as possible

    Same here. So the 1st release was like a trial balloon to see if these 'cons could move profitable amount of units!
