I'm definitely tempted by this new boxset, seeing as I didn't manage to get a pre-order in for the first two and then didn't bother with the last four

thats about $25-$30 more then what they cost separately. Sadly I wasn't able to preorder the first set, so never bothered to preorder the others, banking on a combo set coming eventually. so this will probably be the route I end up going.

"King Poseidon Perfect Mode Set" :-?

Assuming it's just a bulk order of the 3 2-packs without any extras included, how do the prices compare?

I wish there were more info on packaging, deco and any extra accessories. The “perfect mode” line makes me worry there might be

I am 99% certain that this is just like the PotP Dinobot set, where it was just a bundle of all the individuals without adding anything extra and it's all the individual boxes in a large brown box

Me too, except the regular dual releases are already armed to the teeth with each one having at least 1 gun and a melee weapon that can combine into the combiner's sword. The hands and feet are new already, so I can't see them doing an even better set just for the box set. The only additional accessory I can think of that that wouldn't be pretty redundant in would be a stand for the limb bot who is pulling gun duty. Other than that, all I can think of is nicer packaging.

At least that is what I'm telling myself for now. If Pulse puts up a pre-oerder for the set, I may revisit my thinking.

But that was a hasbro china initiative, this is TT, so there may be a few extra wrinkles in the comparison. The better comparison might be with the Ginrai boxset which TT released after the induvidual releases. That one did have extra stuff.

If anything, there may be minor differences in deco. O, and I don't see Hasbro pulling this one over on Pulse ;)

I have the two packs coming in through Pulse so I'm set already. I'm glad this exists though for everyone who missed pre-orders the first time through.

This bundle is not a boxed set. It's just the six individual releases offered together as one purchase.

And, since it's a TakaraTomy Mall offer, a lot of good that does for most of us here since you can only order from TTM if you have a mailing address located inside Japan.

Some fans, like powered convoy, use a forwarding service for TTMall exclusives. Shipping is free within japan so you dont spend twice on shipping.

And thanks for letting us know its a bundle and not a boxset, that settles things.

I want to be enthused about the Seacons - except we've already had so, SO many combiners that were remolded from the CW Superion set, or which use a remolded Silverbolt as the core. If these were really all original, then I might be willing to overlook the massive price tag. As it stands - it looks you're just not getting enough that's 'new' to justify the expense. If it goes on clearance at BBTS for 50% off sometime, then maybe. But $250? I trow not!

BBTS is not a provider of this set currently. They had preorders for the first two but took down the pages. I know this because I ordered them and now I probably won’t get them and they never posted preorders for the other sets. Only a handful of 3rd party retailers locked in some inventory but it’s primarily sold through Takara Tomy mall and hasbropulse and it’s all sold out currently. This is not going to be a clearance item

The website says "domestic only". Does that mean you have to be in Japan or will they deliver to anyone?

You need an address in Japan.

I feel like they have remolded enough to make these worth buying. Knowing that we want combiner figures to have a similar size, proportion, and build — not to mention the fact that many of these are four-legged animals — using the same 'footprint' to design around is okay in my book. As long as we get heavy retooling that helps the figures truly homage the original.

Hence, the disclaimer - "if" ;)

Kinda thought they would do a set from the get go. May just be a Japan only set but figured it was inevitable.

Again, this is not a boxed set. This is just the six individual releases bundled together as one purchase, exclusive to TakaraTomy Mall.
