Seibertron.com is proud to bring you seven new galleries for the Transformers Generations Selects Seacons. All together, there are almost 1,500 images because there is a lot of ground to cover with the Seacons. Since they are all combiners, the limbs have five modes each: leg, arm, robot, beast mode with Snaptrap only having the beast, robot and torso modes (though we attempted a Snaptrap weapons/base/attack mode for your viewing pleasure). On top of that, each of the limbs also have a Targetmaster mode. You will find an individual gallery for Turtler (Snaptrap), Lobclaw (Nautilator), Kraken (Seawing), Gulf (Skalor), Overbite and Tentakil, along with their combined form King Poseidon (Piranacon).

And unlike other combiners, since there are five different limbs, you can get many different configurations when combining them into Piranacon and chosing which one to use as the gun. We cover all of those along with the gun modes being held simply by Snaptrap and Overlord.

The gallery for King Poseidon will also show him off against God Ginrai and Grand Maximus as well as group images with the other Decepticons from the Masterforce cartoon such as Overlord, Dreadwind, Darkwing "Blackwing", the Prime Master Pretenders (Bomb-Burst, Skullgrin, and Submarauder), and Titans Return Headmaster Juniors (Fangry, Horri-Bull and Squeezeplay). In addition to King Poseidon wielding each Seacon member in Targetmaster mode, we came up with several "blaster" combinations that utilize each of the Seacons guns combined to form a massive blaster (which the instructions unfortunately failed to demonstrate an official combined gun mode).

While these figures are all based on previously released molds, the remolding and added parts really make them unique and it is a wonder to behold. We hope you enjoy these galleries!

What is that third mode for Snap Trap/Turtler? some kind of submarine? gun platform? fanmode? Traditionally the Leaders of Combiner teams have a third mode [and no i don't mean a torso]
Anyone know please?

I wish I could afford these guys, they're just out of the budget - but they are too cool for school!

Officially Turtler does not have a third mode. I think the picture in the gallery is Seibertron showing off that he can still transform like Silverbolt, like how Hun-grrr can assume a "jet mode" if you transform him the same way as Silverbolt. Likewise, Silverbolt has a "dragon mode" but these are just fan modes.

That is a truly impressive gallery, thanks for putting these together Boss!

Makes me more excited to finally get them all once the final 2 come in and I can ship them

An awesome gallery indeed thank you so much! Also patiently waiting on my last 2 Seacons. I haven't looked at all 1500 pics, but I wonder if there's a way you can turn Tentakil around ( just so you can't see its face), just looks goofy upside down.

Also, looks like you got some pretty awesome poses, and were abel to have him keep his arm up even with the added deluxe as a weapon! (or was that trick photography ;) ) I know PrimevsPrime was disappointed at the the loose/floppiness of KP, did you find this to be so? I know it may be a case of YMMV, but I haven't had any extreme problems with the 4 I have so far.

The hands in particular are incredible. Blows any of the previous Has/Tak hands out of the water. I'd seriously pay $20 a pair of they ever released them separately for the other combiners.

King Poseidon and the Seacons have the same inherent problems that the rest of the Combiner Wars molds have. I knew what to expect and wasn't going to let that stop me from showing the rest of you how awesome this set is. I was inspired by PrimevsPrime's video review to kick ass with these galleries. I made some modifications to some of the figures (like adding a coating of super glue to thicken up some of the joints) to be able to get these toys to do what I wanted them to do in the galleries.

Great photos. The Modern ones look so much nicer then the original's overall, although the modern turtler is a little less sleet looking in Turtle mode then the original, but he reminds me more of Gamera then the original did.
It's too bad Tentikill looks terrible no matter which version you go with. lol

I would have loved to have gotten my hands on these. Money just didn't make it happen. These galleries certainly make it easier to appreciate them :D

Fantastic shots, only thing missing from the masterforce villains is Black Zarak! (oh and I guess the headmaster Jr's receiving proper updates)

And sadly, Doubledealer. It was really hard doing all of these setup shots for Masterforce knowing that a proper Doubledealer was just around the corner.

I forgot Doubledealer #-o I can understand that though. On reflection there's still a lot of the Autobot cast that haven't been updated yet. Luckily God Ginrai has Grand to back him up in the photos :lol:

Also, I love this photo so much!

Seacons and Predacons were the only combiner teams I didn't own any members of as a kid. The Predacons I've made up for a couple times between the first Japanese reissue and Titan, but I passed on the Hasbro Seacon reissue because I thought Takara would use the refreshed molds for a properly colored box set like they did with the Predacons, Constructicons and Combaticons (spoiler: they didn't) and the club repaint sold out before I could complete the sale. This is my first time with any for of Seacons and I'm having a lot of fun with them!

Maybe a silly question, but how well do the Selects Seacons mix with the rest of the CW/PotP? I'm asking because I was wondering if a new version of this guy would be possible:

I don't see why it couldn't. The limbs are all the same size as CW and PotP limbs and there's no clearance issues where they connect to Turtler.

I'm talking more about the tolerances of the ports.
