And thanks once again to Takara Tomy's official Twitter account, we have a brand new teaser image to share with you. It shows both the recently released King Poseidon's combiner hand, as well as the same hand done in a dark teal color, and a copper colored trident sword.

Transformers News: Transformers Generations Selects God Neptune Teaser From Takara Tomy

While the sword belongs to Halfshell, Snaptrap/Turtler's Beast Wars II counterpart, it's likely just there as a placeholder. The tweet itself, when translated from Japanese, states that everything will be made clear on Friday May 15th at noon, Japanese time (10 pm CST). While the teal hand and the sword are pretty much a confirmation that we're getting God Neptune from Takara Tomy in the Generations Selects line, we'll also likely learn if there will be a recolor of the Nautilator/Lobclaw mold included, as the original toy and cartoon never featured one.

Stay tuned to Seibertron, and we'll bring you official word on Takara's next project as soon as we know!

I'm more curious whether Tentakil will be remolded in order to gain a more feminine appearance.

Tentakil is already pretty feminine already thanks to the choice of base mold, being moonracer.

Honestly in hindsight I regret getting into King Poseidon, as God Neptune does look a lot nicer color-wise (and the color scheme did get used for the G1 seacons too in a story). But hey, I'm 4/6 into King Poseidon now so no turning back huh?

At this point I'm almost upset that they expect us to just double dip onthis mold mere weeks after completing king posiedon; it had better be either tremendously easier on the budget, or - if not - they had damn well better do something to justify keeping the price high >:oP

What do you mean "mere weeks after"? There is no way on God's green Earth that this thing is coming anytime before 2021 at the earliest.

Recall that it took a whole year between Super Megatron's initial teaser (at which point his retooled details were already noticeable in his silhouette) and his first full-color reveal, and that was before his first preorders. There is no telling when Takara will unveil the full colors of God Neptune even before they put up preorders.

Personally, I like the King Poseidon coloration better. If they had maybe adjusted the God Neptune colors to pop a little more than the original version, I might have been tempted to get that one instead. Doesn't look like that's going to happen; this teaser looks like it might be slavish to the original coloration, in which case I'll pass.

In all honesty, I haven't bought any of the Seacons yet, because I've been holding out hope that they'll be released in a giftset at some point. That's probably not going to happen, either, though.

Chances are God Neptune will be a giftset, especially if they knock out the Targetmaster guns and Nautilator. In BWII, the Space Pirate Seacons were only available that way, not individually.

If God Neptune is a boxset, I seriously hope it's not going to be made to order. Considering some of Takara's UW releases are like $250, there's no way I'd pre-order that since there's no way to know if I'll have the money when Pulse charges, especially because Pulse's delays and general life are unpredictable. I hope that they go the Seacons route of individual release, because even though God Neptune does look great, I really only want like two, maybe three of the figures, not a whole set.

Also, as a weird side note, what if they included little pirate accessories for the beast modes? :lol:

Sure, but I was hoping for the other version, in King Poseidon colors and featuring all six figures. First world problems, I know...

I'd be interested only if God Neptune would be a box set. A "fairly priced" one of course. Skin to the United Warriors box sets.

But we all know it will not be the case.

Those are 2 different things. You could preorder it but not have to put money down for it until it comes out, which could be months to a year from now.

FINALLY got my in-stock notice for Overbite at TFSource. I'd imagine Tentakil will follow shortly this afternoon. My Piranacon should be complete next week!

yes just got the same email (though i checked the site and my pre-order and says they are both in stock)... they also say they will start shipping orders in the order received, but I imagine if they have enough stock to accept new orders, then they got more than enough to fulfill all pre-orders...hopefully mine will be shipping soon, ''

...and there's the Tentakil email...finally ;)
