    Temp charge. It'll eventually drop. They'll charge you again when they're about to ship it out.

    Would be fun if they released a sixth member with a cannon alt mode that matches the comic.

    The cannon will be canon. :p

    I've placed my pre-order on Hasbro Pulse. With tax, a little over $200. Still a fairly better price than Tfsource IMO.

    Oh this works perfectly. Because that repainted BW Neo Prime + Buster was going to come out (or has already come out, right?) And the buster toy colors already mesh with God Neptune.

    So in toy/storyline, Neptune now has the buster...and he can turn it into a sentient character who can be a GN themed Nautilator repaint. It's also kinda serendipitous that the Matrix Buster has those gold spikes in front because that'd almost certainly translate in to Nautilator's beast legs.

    Honestly if this is the direction they're going...call him "Rockbuster." I know Japanese BW already had a guy by that name...but you get a reference to "Matrix Buster" and TFWiki can make the obvious "Rock Lobster" jokes.

    Just watched BW II for the first time a few weeks ago. I immediately started praying for a God Neptune recolor of the Seacons I just got ... somewhere down the road. Somewhere way, way down the road, lol. Not so soon.

    I just pre-ordered it. No way I'm going to risk getting shut out.

    Who was the genius poster who was predicting God Neptune wouldn't include Nautilator and that a hint he's not neccessary in the set is that his Axe weapon forms a longer handle and without it he still has the full Trident sword?

    Great observations to this TFW poster!!!

    Edit: Found the quote! Hats off to @Neko-bot77

    I respect you and your opinion
    but yet he didn’t say the mini cons are him nor did he speak through them

    I’m still gonna say and think that until cybertron he was sideways until hasbro says otherwise, and if they did then my bad, I’m very stubborn, also want it to be used in a literal sense if it wasn’t already because it’s amazing, and the armada anime was a hot mess anyway XD

    this manga seems to be using the full size figure as the female one because you can see the small robot mode hand in God Neptune comics first vol01 1.

    I have a fine collection of Space Pirates from Botcon, so I might just put these there and never combine them.

    Those are good points on how it's mostly the younger directed lines and shows that really does the new stuff along with bringing back favorites from other eras. I mean Cyberverse surprisingly made a lot of BW references from time to time and it's not just from Cheetor either. Which makes the fact on how Generations is VERY unwiling to dip into the other TF eras much if at all feel more ironic because with Generations supposing to be about celebrating the brand's entire history you would think that Generations would do a LOT more to give out representation to everyone else and not just from G1 but we haven't.

    I wonder if that really stems from the majority of G1 purists not allowing anything that strays away from familiar G1 territory to be made in Generations at all? Sure one will argue that given the huge 80's love trend going on now Hasbro's wanting to take advantage of that and that G1 so far is a hot seller but still there's no reason why it can't do that and give much needed attention to the other eras especially that sooner or later the 80's nostalgia trend is going to come to an end. Hasbro shouldn't keep on being beholden to the G1 fanbase forever especially when it's other fans are crying for it to give us attention.

    Oh wow! Great set of shots! As suspected the Seacons/ God Neptune's motely pirate crew are all casted in a nice, GLOSSY PEARL WHITE PLASTIC. It was just bad lighting. Look at Half Shell's gleam in the light. Noice.

    The Classics universe (splinter marvel G1) Tentakill and Nautilator were killed on prehistoric Earth when they were overloaded with Energon and promptly mauled by native wild life. The rest donned Energon armor which changed them to the BWII colour scheme and followed Megatron in a scheme to hijack and reprogram some Autobot protoforms. Megatron used Tentakill’s blueprints on one of the protoforms and that protoform became Scylla.

    Well, kinda. It was an homage to BWII/Neo but with G1 characters and it was one of the better Funpub universes.

    So more expensive and missing a limb. I like Scylla but hard pass at $185.  Maybe if the set was $100 I\'d consider it but then again I don\'t even like the color scheme honestly.

    Actually it’s technically $35 cheaper because you don’t have to have lobclaw
    In the God Neptune team

    200 for 4 limbs and a body 35x4 plus 60
    And for king Poseidons team it’s an extra 35 so 235 not including tax

    There is no God Neptune styled Nautilator, but people want one to exist because the original God Neptune was missing him. As for why he'd be a stand alone release if he did come out, it's because he's' not part of the original 5 so he's optional.

    $25 for each deluxe: $100
    plus a voyager: $35
    plus space sugar glacing: $50
    $185 seems fair to me.
