We have a report for a new Kabaya Transformers kit, found on product website Syokugan-Ohkoku, and written up by a Snakas user as a tentative and possibly embargoed release of a new King Poseidon/Piranacon team combiner! Check out the image below, showing the box art for Snaptrap and the combined mode for the Seacons - and why not take a stroll down memory lane with the Seibertron.com galleries for the 1988 toy right here?

I can understand the more expensive, obscure vintage figures, but why would anyone want this instead of a normal G1 Piranacon ? There's plenty of originals and reissues available...

...Because it's a fun little model kit that is like 1/4 of the price of the original, potentially WST-scaled, and also comes with gum?

It's the fun of assembling the figures that counts as well. Plus, they're cheap I have the original G1 Piranacon (with a broken Overbite), and I still want it. Awaiting a redeco into God Neptune ;;)

How would the members be distributed though? The main Gum series usually come in wave of 3, which isn't enough to contain all the Seacons, even with the smaller members paired off. Either there are two more figures along with Turtler/Snaptrap in that wave with the Seacons forming their own smaller series of 5, or one member is split across 3 kits.

I think this might be a DX kit like Fortress Maximus since it looks like Snaptrap is a larger figure

Given the simplicity of the design and its model kit nature it should be very easy to repaint them as the Seacon Pirates. Just sort the parts by colour and respray them. You could theoretically paint them on the sprues but then you'll be left with nasty marks.

looks nice, will have to consider it. i do like the kabaya kits, and i do have the superion, menasor and bruticus sets (need to paint the limbs though) so he would have playmates

His fellow Scramble City torsos Silverbolt, Hot Spot, Motormaster, Onslaught were all regular kits, not DX ones.

Speaking of other kits, now I want kits of Abominus and Computicon and Scramble away!

While I am glad to see Kabayas return to G1, I have always enjoyed the obscure or unreachable figures in the past.
I understand they are covering a bunch of bases with the last few releases however the return to G1 is welcome.
Hopefully some more hard to find combiners will be reimagined in Kabaya following this set.

Yeah but this is Piranahcon! I was thinking about it too, they might do this like Road Cesar; 3 of the torso and the 6 limbs spread out 2 to a pack. Thus you get a case of 6.

Looks very interesting. If this is next then it's kinda weird they didn't do the Go! Shinobi team.

How well did the other team sell? I heard Go was a complete bust for Takara.

Whether Go! did good or poorly for Takara, Kabaya developed the samurai team anyway. I'd imagine that the Seacons where in development before Kabaya released the samurai team so sales couldn't be used to justify not putting out the shinobi team. Then again maybe they just wanted to break apart the Go! releases with something else.

Piranacon has 6 members, not limbs: torso, two arms, two legs and a gun. From the looks of it Turtler/Snaptrap is a single kit with no extra parts, which leaves 5 members to distribute.

Limb, member, same difference. Perhaps the parts for the 6th member will be spread out over the other member kits? Like they did for Rodimus' trailer?

Maybe, or they could make a mini-series of 5 along the likes of the Gaia Guardian and Gaiacross series. :)

At any rate, out of curiosity I measured my Kabaya Dai Atlas, a standard kit, with my Gen. Bombshell. As I guessed they're roughly the same height. So we can expect Turtler/Snaptrap to be roughly Legends-sized.

So a single case has 8 boxes, but there are only 6 figures in the set? This actually reminds me of the Micron Booster sets, where the "doubles" spots could be taken up by "Chase" pieces (different colored variants usually packed 1 a case). God Neptune anyone?

At any rate, good to see we have a date for these guys. And from the looks of it, the combiner kibble is spread across the 6, according to the standard configuration:

Turtler/Snaptrap: Chest Shield
Overbite: Sword, Gun.
Kraken/Seawing: Left Hand
Lobclaw/Nautilator: Right Hand
Tentakil: Left Foot
Galph/Skalor: Right Foot
