    And right after I mention it, I got an ebay notice my last two are shipping. Finally going to have my full set!

    Regarding durability, I've not had anything break, though I could see some of the thinner spikes and clear parts being susceptible. The limbs and such feel perfectly solid.

    Joints were creaking but this guy is pretty tough. Overbite is NOT small...

    I love this set. I wish I had three of each so I could display combined, sea monster and robot modes all at once

    I'm surprised it's taking so long to get out the BW repaint

    After seeing what's been the pace of the 2 repaints already, I'm frustrated, but not surprised. you've also got to wonder if the very real possibility of a Neptune repaint from the Takara seacons is giving TFC additional pause.

    I meant the two full set repaints (the black/ purple, and the all black). All ive seen of the BWII repaints is the one... sorry for the glimmer of false hope.

    I did think about that, but I didn’t want to be too outrageous :p .

    Fun nerd fact: Someone rich enough to buy 120 sets could display every permutation of Piranacon.

    Is there anything really different with these repaint versions I’m seeing on eBay or do they just mean re-issue? I really can’t tell any difference as I don’t have the original.

    "Repaint" seems to be a mis-translation or something, at least when it comes to TFC Poseidon. They're just re-releases of the originals.

    Ok, thanks. Figured something was getting lost in translation. Looks like I’ll be finally picking this guy up soon.

    Honestly, no. I have often resorted to screw drivers to get them out. If anyone has a good suggestion, I'm interested too.

    I think I did loosen some screws when I first got it, but it only made them like 2% easier to move. (but i'll take it!)
