    Also, if they don't release a Nautilator with an accurate color scheme for this set, I have two Nautilators and one of them will be repainted. Not letting one of my favorite Transformers get shafted again

    I made a whooping 4 posts about this topic, 3 of which to defend an opinion of mine for some reason because an individual took issue with it.

    And again, it has relevance to me, if it doesn’t for you then that's great, have fun with this release. You don’t need to prove me wrong to feel better or anything.

    You don’t need to, @Predakwon posted his set a couple of pages back. The difference is noticeable to me. If it isn’t to you, fantastic, but please don’t try to fault me for thinking otherwise. I just do.

    All I'm trying to say is wait until an actual comparison pic is released with the two side by side, you can't make any valid claims on the deco until it happens. The original is off-white and in my eyes it appears the new one looks almost the same, idk.

    In this photo comparison, the Generations update actually looks slightly whiter than the original toy.

    The milky white looks exactly like my OG God Neptune to me. That one's plastic also looked a bit cheap XD
    Sorry to see it differs from what some people were hoping for.

    Still, it's too hard to spot the real differences unless you have them side by side under the same lighting

    Agreed, I can’t make a valid claim at all given the circumstances. It’s just an opinion of mine. It’s also possible that it is less the color choice that sets me off but maybe the fact that said parts aren’t painted but molded in this color. It's really noticeable on Coelagon and Scylla to me - the sculpted detail looks so soft and washed out, I feel like with a coat of milky white paint on a base this wouldn’t have happened.

    Takara made all Seacons available bundled, it's not a boxed set though, just all six individual releases listed together.

    Just got mine for ¥17,600!

    It\'s great they remolded the squid, but I wish they would have included the \"missing member\" as a new character, perhaps in diffuse different colours and as a (possibly unrelated) character...

    Yes! But the wrong white! ... :lol 

    Maybe I should've just kept my trap shut on this one. But other see it too I guess? I don't know. At the end of the day most people seem happy with this and that's the most important thing.

    The comparison was made to show that neither figure is pure white. Using these two images to prove they're exactly the same color down the RBG obviously is flawed and not why I used them.

    You can dislike it as much as you want which is fine, but to cry about it not being white when it's not supposed to be white (your very first complaint), that's why you're wrong. And I don't know how to expect standard definition animation that old to depict the figure's off white color balance accurately.

    I hate these releases where I can't tell if I like it or not. I had this same feeling walking out of the theater after watching The Last Knight. I love Overbite but I'm not sure about the others. And Nautilator is one of my favorites so with him missing I don't think I need this set.

    I might just try to save up the money to buy the TFC Piranacon, at least I know I totally love that set. These figures look like soap to me. But being a sucker for combiners...I just don't know.

    Hmm......sold as a set for around $190.00 - $200 through TakaraTomyMall. I'll probably pass. I don't think I like it enough. I could put that money towards a PS5.

    YAAAASSSS!!!!

    I.... I might order two sets if I can. These look wonderful and I am kind of disappointed that a white Nautilator isn't a thing (takara had no problems making OCs in the past) but I just happen to have an extra with me as I type. I was intending to make him red but whatever. I wonder how I can get a paint close to the milky white, though ......

    I rather wait and pay TFC to recolor their Poseidon than pay over 200 bucks (and even more for you people that will drop money on third party kits to \"fix\" it) for a monkey armed combiner wars combiner.

    I gotta say this looks really cool. I wasn't planning to get this version, but I better watch the BW I I cartoon to see if I want to do an RID Baldigus or not.

    Wellity, wellity, wellity, looks like I was right about Scylla.
    Terrormander and Ceolagon's beast modes look so good with all that goooold, and God Neptune combined looks sick, I get the issues some have about plastic colour though, it might be accurate to the original toys but it really washes out the details.
    Alas, I had a feeling it would be a giftset, I really would've liked a Scylla :(  (and I'm not in any way prepared to pay the absurd prices aftermarket sellers will inevitably charge for her alone). Maybe if I've got the dolla kicking about after MP Tigatron I can be tempted by the whole set, but for now I'm gonna be skipping God Neptune.
