Many users are now reporting that - after a four year long wait - the highly-anticipated Transformers Club exclusive Seacon sets are finally arriving. The repainted G1 figures had originally been announced as a Wal-Mart exclusive for original Transformers Universe line in August 2004, during the Official Transformers Collectors' Club Convention, but the set had been shelved due to lack of retailer interest and its fate had been uncertain for years. Now, thanks to the persistance of the folks at Hasbro and the TFCC, the set has finally been made available to fans via the Club's online store.

Visit the Club's official site to order your own set, along with the other club-exclusive "Nightbeat", by clicking here.

Since they have the molds I wonder if Takara Tomy would release these set in their G1 colors in the Encore series. BTW, any word on the next Encore release? Metroplex was already released and I haven't read anything about more figures announced...

I'm still a little confused. I ordered and the Seacons and Nightbeat, are only the Seacons shipping right now? I've seen no mention of Nightbeat. Do those of us who ordered both have to wait until both are in before the order is shipped. I know that TFCC took a poll to see if fans would rather pay for seperate shipping to get one or the other faster or wait till both were in a just pay for shipping once.

I just got mine via FedEx today!!! The instructions leave something to be desired and there are no stickers??!!? And typical of TF toys, the instructions don't match the box art and some of the pictures on the box have the toys transformed incorrectly. A nice piece overall. Anyone else considering getting a set of stickers from reprolabels and putting on this club exclusive?

I definitely would, but I didn't buy and won't buy the set... only if they release it on the original colors (e.g. in the Encore line it would be cool).

I got them!

I was surprised by the box this morning after I got home from work. The Seacons are great worth every penny I spent (and it was a lot of penny's). Nightbeat is ok I guess, I wish he had a Bio card though.

Now if you guys will excuse me I'm gonna mess around with my shiny new Piranacon.

I just received my set of Seacons and Nightbeat. Guess I know what I'm doing tomorrow night for all of you. :)

Think we can convince reprolables to make a sticker set for this color scheme? I was thinking same patterns but orange instead of the blue and the maroon/purple instead of the pink. Any other suggestions?

Got mine today! Nightbeat looks ok, but awesome packaging. The seacons look crazy good. Actually, better irl than online I think. Good stuff!!!

I was confused by the comic, mind you I didn't read it all, but why does Nightbeat have his antennaes until the last two pages? I can't believe they made this toy without the antennaes. I was hoping beyond hope that the final product would have the antennae but that didn't happen ... just further teased with the comic where he has the antennaes.

Heh, they probably meant to have antennas and figured it would cost too muc. I'm guessing they then told the illustrators to remove the antenna, so they drew no antenna, but forgot to go back and correct their previous work? Maybe?

Is it wrong to like the box more than the figure? :???:

The "ears" were planned for the toy.

When test samples arrived at the factory, the test run did not transform because the "ears" got in the way. The factory removed them from the mold without FP's permission as their directive was to have these things ready for BotCon,..you know several months ago.

Failures in time-travel aside...FP decided to let it go and proceed with production. The comic is an attempt to justify the lack of "ears" from what I understand.
