I will wager that these two are SEAWATCH and BOMBSHOCK of micromaster fame.

I doubt either for the following reasons.

For Tankmaster, he's said to be a really obscure character, who is an assassin from Darkmount and an associate of Straxus. And, the fact both his and Marinemaster's Targetmaster partners are named after two Marvel G1 Empties, Wheezel and Rotorbolt, combined with this points to him being another Marvel G1 Decepticon. ;)

For Marinemaster, it would have to be not Seawatch but his kiddie Japanese counterpart Boater.

Though, Boater already got some decent screen time in the Victory cartoon, but then we got Grimmaster as Kakuryu, so I guess that makes Boater an option.

But, considering that Marinemater's Targetmaster is named "Rotorbolt" and that his function is "Ocean Defense", he could also be the G2 Rotor Force member Manta Ray, who was also an Ocean Defense Specialist. Not to mention that Racemaster is G2 Rapido and dozermastrer is G2 Roadblock, that makes an open door for more G2 characters to be in this. ;)

Not a massive fan of the Undertow torso mode repaint, but everything else looks gorgeous.
Assault Master and Tank Master are just drool-over-able.

What is Tank Master doing with the minicon here?!

I should have guessed from his saw and scoop :BANG_HEAD: For that matter, Airmaster is Micromaster Sky High.. Only three more confirmations left.

It's astonishing how much better these look with a unified colour scheme. I would've preferred a more generic dirty yellow for Buildmaster and the Nemesis colours are similarly overplayed. I do still slightly kind of want them a lot... I haven't got a single PCC and since these sets aren't a mess of colours they're probably as good as it gets. The price is a lil bit too rich for me to prioritise them in any capacity, though.
