While WFC Smokescreen is as available as May Mayhem toys of the past in the US, he was sold out rather fast from any retailer who had preorders online in Canada. EBGames only ordered enough to cover preorders, for instance. So I am happy to report that Canadians who didn't get him yet can get him through Toysrus.ca which is becoming the main place to get Transformers Generations Selects toys in the country. He is available right here for $29.99 CAD.

I am patiently waiting for Lancer to come back in stock on Pulse. I know as soon as I order it from somewhere else it will be back in stock. Just playing the refresh game. :POPCORN:

With the final two members of the Transformers Generations Selects Seacon team unveiled recently, it was only a matter of time before we finally saw what the full combiner looked like in its dinal deco. Check out the new images of Piranacon, or King Poseidon as he is known in Japan, below that were posted earlier today on the Transformers Overdrive Facebook page, which we mirrored below for your viewing convenience. You can view images of the other four Seacons who combine with Overbite and Tentakil to form the Decepticon Combiner PIRANACON (aka KING POSEIDON) which were previously revealed here: Snaptrap (Turtler), Skalor (Gulf), Seawing (Kraken), and Nautilator (Lobclaw).

Awesome! Tentakil makes a weird leg, though. :PREDACON:

If they redeco him as God Neptune, I would buy it in an instance.

It could work as God Neptune, the pirates from Beast Wars 2, however they might have one big problem: Nautilator was missing from the group. Only big concern.

I just noticed that Snaptrap's combined mode legs for his torso mode look to be the same as Combiner Wars Silverbolt, just remolded a bit.

Well that is a gorgeous sight to behold, they've done a terrific job here.

There are five limbs as it is now, with the one that doesn't get to be an arm or a leg used as a large weapon in combined mode. Reducing the group to four limbs and a torso would make it just like any other Scramble City combiner style team. I don't see the issue, honestly.

That's because Snaptrap is a retool of PotP Hun-Gurrr, who is himself either a heavy retool of CW Silverbolt OR a case of shared engineering.

I am still kind of unclear about this set. Is it just a Japanese exclusive, Hasbro Pulse exclusive?

It is a Takara exclusive, similar to how the Legends LG-EX ones were, except Hasbro Pulse is now an official outlet for them. This means Takara developed it on their own and get to set the pricing. Hasbro Pulse is really just being an outlet in the US for them. Also, the "set" from a purchasing standpoint is 6 individual releases which will come out in pairs with each pair about a month apart.

If you haven't jumped on them already, it is already too late to order the first 4 bots from Hasbro Pulse, and you will need to go with TFSource or another online retailer at a slightly higher price.

I swear if the argument about the torso mold being a retool or not comes back I'm going to stop checking this discussion thread.

:lol: :lol: Was there ever any argument? No. I feel you on that.

Man that bucket of fish looks AWESOME!!!
Can't wait to get my salty sea mits on them.

But, notice how he can't hold that weapon friend off of the ground? :lol:
Not that I expected he could.

What I was more suprised about was the fact the weapon limb was connected to the back of the hand.

Also I thought it was common knowledge that turtler was a retool? All the limbs are retools (extensive ones at that) it's not a bad thing. Now let's see the God Neptune repaint.

Nope and there really is only so many ways to make CW style combiner limbs/torsos.

The individual figures don't do much for me, but the combined Fishacon is pretty cool looking. Going be fun to watch from the side lines. All the limb bots can become a weapon correct? So that's five modes a piece, amazing :shock: and awesome ;)^ amazesome :BOOM:

Lancer just arrived and she's already been knocked up by TotP Optimus Primal. Looks like its a little baby Hardhead. How does that even work :-?

Maybe it's the pictures but that sword almost looks like a full trident staff.

What's being referred to is how, when POTP Hungrrr was revealed, a ton of people thought he was a retool of Silverbolt when in reality he just shares engineering about it. There was entirely too much talk on the subject, and now this mold, based on Hungrrr, has the chance to spark the same stupid argument again.

I don't think it's just the pictures. It looks to me like all six seacons' individual melee weapons combine to form a trident for the big guy, which is pretty nifty.

Turtler shares these parts with Hun-Gurrr:

- arms
- upper legs

And that's it, really, the core body is totally redone. And that's all people should care about: not whether or not something's a retool, but what parts are shared with who. By the by, when taken as percentages, Tentakil comes closest to Turtler with the amount of parts changed, with him retaining Moonracer/Firestar's core body instead.

Indeed, all Seacons come with both their own guns, and a melee weapon from the trident, like Victorion's sword. The breakdown:

- main body: Turtler's sword
- staff: Lobclaw's axe
- left and right prongs: Kraken's and Tentakil's blades
- center prong: Gulf's and Overbite's swords

I know everyone is excited about King Poseidon but I'm just happy I have all the Praxians together. Selects Smokescreen just showed up and joined Siege Prowl, 35th Anniversary Bluestreak, and Siege Barricade. I really wish Hasbro would sell a pack of blast effects...
