I hope this guy's available through the TFCC the way Elita-1 and Razorclaw were. I wasn't very impressed the last time I saw pics (though I said I'd be willing to buy this guy then as well, I think), but this time we have better pics.

Dunno about the date, but the fact that his alt-mode does kinda look like a shark (when they don't frak up the arms, like they did in the other pics I've seen) is part of the reason why I like this guy. Didn't buy the mold when it was out during Energon, but when that version was repackaged for U1.0 and I was able to find it I made a point of buying.

Ha, funny thing is, I have the Energon version of this mold, but as G1 Sharkiticon? Double surprise! I didn't even know this was coming out! ;)

This is like the second post I've seen about it. Other announced 2 usages of the E-Sharkticon mold, the other being Sky-Byte. Both are good usages of the mold IMO. Still hating the way they mis-transformed the arms in the original pics, though.

It looks like they are trying to reach the female audience with this one. Too many pastel colors and if you add a mane and tail you can comb, it would look like something from the "My Little Pony" toy line. I appreciate the homage to the original Sharkticon Gnaw, but less pink and more slightly darker gray could have done that.

It's unlikely because you have to consider that the Sweeps were the comparable set from last year and they sold out in a day.

Yeup. I don't do multiple purchases, but this is a set (3 per set) that I'll want two of! Something about troop builders that I really love. Seekers, Sweeps, these sharkticons.

Ugh. Just... ugh.

I guess I am going to wait until next year and hope the theme and figures are more to my taste.

Aside from the fact G2 does not mean "after the movie?" Sharkticon was still G1, another odd one out along with Sky-Byte.

Is it just me, or does the molding around the eyes and angle of the camera make Sharkticon look REALLY concerned about the hungry-looking Doraimon behind him?

They are really going to town with the funky colors. I wonder if this figure will be a 3-pack like the Sweeps..
