Thanks to a heads up from several Seibertronians, we have news that the long awaited release of the Transformers Generations Selects Turtler and Gulf from Hasbro Pulse is finally upon us!

As you might remember, all 6 of the Generations Selects Seacons were delayed at some point or another prior to their original release dates. Despite the current worldwide situation with COVID-19, the figures are now ready for release, and Turtler and Gulf are ready to ship out from Pulse. With the release of these first 2 Seacons, we can expect to see the final 2 pairs here soon enough, so stay tuned to Pulse and to Seibertron as we await the release of the final 2 seacons from Pulse.

Are you ready to receive these Seacons? Are you ready to finally form King Poseidon? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below!

I've had these for a while, and in the context of WFC figures, they don't feel as overpriced as I expected. Skalor is beefier than most deluxes, and has five accessories (sword, combiner hand, cannons, and transforming tail weapon). His paint job and articulation are great, though probably not on par with Siege figures. Snaptrap/Turtler feels like a leader-class WFC figure - voyager sized but loaded with accessories that can be used in different ways. You can make pretty cool little tank out of his rifle, shell, shoulder cannons, and combiner feet. The rifle and cannons are compatible with 5mm blast effects, too.

Hopefully BBTS gets theirs in soon.

Are they even still doing theirs? It's been a while, but as I recall, their preorders vanished from their listings, and they never even listed the last two. Please correct me if I'm wrong; I ordered via TFSource, so I don't remember.

To quickly weigh in on the exhaust vs. Slicer, I would prefer Slicer actually. I'd like an Action Master as a new Transformer design

I was able to get pre-orders in for the first two and they're still listed in my account. Hopefully I haven't made a mistake.

Just got charged for the first 2 Seacons via Pulse. We will see how long it takes to make it here.

If they get any in-stock I'll probably pick them up from Pulse.

Yeah that listing for the first 2 on BBTS was pulled in less than an hour. Probably when they realized they weren't going to be able to order directly. Either they may bite the bullet and make good ordering from pulse, then just forward to you, or probably just cancel the order and not charge you. That is the one good thign about BBTS is they do not charge until the item is actually in stock.

Has anyone else had this problem with their Select Seawing? I’ve noticed mine has come misassembled on his right leg, where the knee joint is put in backwards? This prevents him from bending his knee backwards in robot mode, but doesn’t affect his ability to transform into a stingray.

Anyone know a good way to get these pins out?

Backwards nothing: your Seawing/Kraken has two left upper legs including knees.

It's the end of the month, which means the new Transformers toys from Takara are out. that includes Generations Selects Tentakil and Overbite. Transformers fan Richard shared some images (to keep his privacy we will not link to his personal Facebook page) and you can see them below. He of course took the opportunity to finally combine them all to make King Poseidon / Piranacon.

So, are you getting yours? Or did you decide this combiner was just a bit too much money to your liking? Regardless of your choice, let us know how you feel about it now!

They all look pretty sharp. I haven't preordered them due to financial issues, but if it's feasible, I'm definitely gonna pick them up on the 2ndary market. For some reason, Piranacon looks skinnier than I remember him onscreen and the comic pages, but I guess he's accurate to the original toy, which was 1 of my favorites.

These are the only two I'm still waiting for.

Actually, the original Piranacon/King Poseidon is a bit on the chubby side:
Image

It comes from his components having a lot more meat on their bones while still having to have the same robot mode and limb-mode heights as the other "Scramble City" type combiners, so they and the combination end up a bit squashed and chubby.
Abominus has the same issue but to a distinctly lesser degree.

If anyone can look at Tentakil in robot mode and NOT see a repaint as Scylla....

I always had Snaptrap's legs a bit closer together to make him taller. I never liked the squatting look on the original gestalts, but some of them couldn't be helped, their chest-crotch armor forced their legs to stay immobile.

Piranacon looks great! If the prices on the secondary market aren't too insane, I may end up trying to get him

That armor also made it look a lot less like squatting, at least on Superion, Menasor, and Bruticus. I can say that much with confidence, since RiD Ruination and G2 Superion have been fixtures of my shelves for a while now, and G1 Menasor was for a while as well.

Even without Snaptrap/Turtler's legs squatting, G1 Piranacon/King Poseidon's limb members end up looking chubby as limbs.

I'd love to get some measurements of the SELECTS Seacons' beast modes, so that I can try doing papercraft versions of said beast modes. If I can't manage it, I hope someone else does.

Can I get a reminder, how much were these on Hasbro Pulse or the other sites they were available on?
