    WHERE'S MY GODDAMN ARMADA OPTIMUS YOU GODDAMN BASTARDS!? If I don't get the figure soon I will come down on Takara like the hammer of Thor! And the thunder of my vengeance will echo through their corridors like the gusts of a thousand winds!

    In all serious though, it's interesting how we're getting all sorts of interesting characters. What exactly is Generation Selects?

    maybe i'm old now but it usually felt like TFs were once a lot more subtle about the whole "Hey, let's resell you the thing we JUST SOLD YOU in new paint!" thing.

    For people saying it’s too soon....

    This is probably the release after Super Megatron. He’s coming end of Sept. So chances are God Neptune would be Nov or December, a good six months after the final G1 Seacon set. Payment isn’t due until it ships at most retailers.

    Now... If Hasbro were smart, they’d do the Universe/Energon/TFCC colors after TT are done with the molds so they can have their own exclusive version of them.

    Generations Selects/Generation Selects are basically Hasbro and Takara's way of releasing things that don't fit into the retail TF toylines released as online exclusives through Pulse (and comic shops) and Takara Tomy Mall respectively.
    Hasbro's are redecos/minor retools (Richocet, red Swoop, the Powerdashers, Nightbird, Cybertron Defence Hot Shot etc.), while Takara's are heavier retools into more niche Japanese characters (Star Convoy, King Poseidon, Super Megatron and now God Neptune).

    Huh didn't think the turnaround would be so quick. I do prefer the God Neptune colors, but I also don't want to buy the (pricey) set again so soon. *shrug*

    Oh well, Piranacon's still pretty cool on his own.

    Oh no! I just realized that God Neptune's default limb placement puts the Kraken and Tentakil molds as the legs. If you think Selects King Poseidon flops forward too much, try using those two as the legs... :(

    probably nice enough to get most people to buy it here that are swearing it off, considering king Poseidon is B.E.A.utiful

    Hopefully pulse will carry them unlike nemesis prime which forced us to go with robot kingdom and be stuck in mail hell
    Sigh... I just want my nemesis prime

    The Netflix line is exclusive (in the US) to Walmart (not sure about other countries). They are sold out on Walmart's website, but are showing up in some stores already.
    You may want to bookmark or subscribe to this thread so you'll know as soon as preorders for God Neptune appear, so you can get them at retail (Takara) prices instead of scalper prices this time.

    I feel ya, it's annoying that pulse didn't carry nemesis, but then it wasn't a selects release so I kinda get why they didn't

    A Piranacon giftset would be nice as well.

    Been excited for the God deco version since the first set was announced, but now that I know I'm not a fan of the molds, I'm sad that I won't be picking this set up after all.

    With current prices, TFC's could be the cheaper way to go... Also, while not released yet, they have shown a God Neptune-colored Skalor, along with their Terrorcons, at recent shows.

    Seriously though, how did the Seacons come out? Was there good QC in bot and combined mode? I never got them. I am interested in this as I love BWII, but only if its like $150 box set.

    If it\'s individual again I\'m only gunning for Scylla if her robot mode is notably different.  If not, his color scheme is attractive, but I\'ll have to think about it.
