Thanks to Seibertronian fonziechavez we have word that the next two Generations Selects Seacons, Kraken (Seawing) and Lobclaw (Nautilator) are now currently available for order on Hasbro Pulse! While it's common knowledge that Pulse had delayed shipping the figures people had preordered, it seems as though once they finally did arrive, they've had additional figures to put up for sale, which is great if you missed out on the limited preorder period. Below is photo proof of fonziechavez' order.

If I had blood, $35 per Deluxe would still be too rich for it. That's way too pricey for some remolded Terrorcons, even if the remolding is well done. Pass on the Seacons, alas, unless they wind up on discount someplace (though in this case, discounted would probably make them regular retail price).

Unfortunately, in this case exclusivity is the main factor in determining the price. If these were at regular retail, they'd be at regular retail price, even if they were remolded Terrorcons.

I think there's more to it than just that. I'm looking at Skalor, who is the only one still in stock, and not only does he have the combiner hand, but there are a sword and a couple of guns. Those gotta cost something since the standard PotP combiners only had a single accessory with the hand, not multiple.

Yeah, people have to stop looking at these as 'budget' retools. They're not, don't want them at that price, don't buy them, but the parts count on the accessories alone would make the hasbro execs blush, not to mention most of them are new, save for the bot mode legs, turtler is 90% new tooling;
I'm sure if this was released under the UW line, people would be lining up to kiss :TAKARATOMY:'s ass (a'la computicon), but cuz it's under a line started by hasbro, it's suddenly offensive somehow; if anything, habsro's being a bro and distributing them outside of TTmalls' extremely small market reach >:oP

I literally don't understand what you're trying to say at all.

I decided back when the preorders first went up that I didn't want them at this price, especially since I have the original G1 figures in relatively good collection, and since my Generations completionism ends at 1987. But! whenever these posts go up I try to buy them, then get relieved when they're out of stock.

I hope that everyone who wants them at this price can get them, and that everyone that doesn't can be happy without them.

The Deluxes come with upgraded combiner hands with individual fingers; multiple additional accessories; except for his hands, every bit of pink on Skalor is paint; Snap Trap is entirely new tooling except for his arms and upper thighs; and they're all heavily remolded almost to the point of only sharing engineering and a few parts... hell, Tentakil is an entirely new mold. These are basically pre-brand unification Takara figures that Hasbro is literally directly importing. To me, they're worth the money, given the extra accessories, paint, and retooling done. Granted, I'd like them more at $29.99 than $34.99... and Snap Trap at $49.99. But for what we've got, I'm fine. I've only got Snap Trap and Skalor so far, but their joints are even better (and tighter) than their "base" figures.

He's not, he reuses the waist and back of PotP Moonracer, and possibly some of the joint pieces. He does have the highest percentage of new parts next to Turtler/Snaptrap.

Fair point. Sharing 2 not super obvious pieces of a previous figure while everything else is new tooling... that's a new mold to me. I'd even say the same about Snap Trap, though his arms/turtle back legs are more obvious than Tentakil's reused Moonracer pieces.

Battle Masked robot mode is named "Ultra Megatron Omega".

If that Megatron comes to Selects I am soooo freaking buying it. He looks crazy, like a '90s idea of hi-tech with the red highlights. Almost like he belongs in the Transformers vs Terminator comic.

What do you mean "if"? It's literally TakaraTomy's eighth Selects figure.

Ah yeah! Thank you, I must not have been paying attention.

Not only do we have confirmation of his Ultra Megatron but he....oh my. Also he has a reference to the Super Megatron-inspired scrapped season 4 Animated Megatron and a TLk homage.

Thanks to a tip from Powered Convoy in our own Energon Pub Forums we're getting some new looks at the upcoming Selects Super Megatron as pre-orders open on Takara Tomy Mall. As the saying goes, he's more than meets the eye! As several keen eyes in the forums had guessed this figure contains all the right parts for the figure to form both Super Megatron in bot and spacecraft modes as well as Ultra Megatron in bot and tank modes. But wait, that's not all! He also has a third face called Ultra Megatron Omega which features a face similar to that of Megatron from the movie Transformers: The Last Knight. What an ambitious figure!

Takara Tomy Mall is pricing him at ¥6,600 (about $60 USD) with release sometime in late September 2020. As with most Takara Tomy Selects releases his orders will only be limited from now until May 7 to Japanese customers. Hasbro Pulse will likely also make him available as they have other Takara Tomy Selects releases in the past, but for now TFSource and the Chosen Prime have opened their orders up for $64.99.

So what do you think of Selects new quasi-quintuple changer? Be sure to let us know in the forums!

I'm hoping the gun part transformation/parts forming isn't too hindered in the jet and tank mode because I'd love to tweak a Super and Ultra version of both, especially since his powered up form use a tank which make less sense as an upgrade. Hopefully there is some way to make a tank with the big railgun/laser gun.

Honestly the only thing which would make him even better if if he had some sort of leg transformation to even further differentiate the forms. Even if it was just some panel flipping or an alternate pair of feet with a red tip. Still, as he is this is some insane and whacked mix of ideas and I love it! Now I want an oversized KO even more do display his Super and Ultra forms. As for the final form, my head keeps calling it Hyper Megatron.
