    i thought I would really like all the Seacons, but it would seem that is not the case. I'm not too fond of this guy. The robot mode seems to look odd to me and the turtle mode is.... Off as well. I do love the Piranacon feet though. Wish I had some for the other CW figures I have.

    Just opened mine. I voted "Only if something else". That something being to complete the set/Piranacon. I don't hate him, but in truth he's not WORTH the price you pay. Turtle mode is clunky as Tets said, I do like the robot mode though & his colours work.

    I'm not unsatisfied, but yeah I can -see- they've started with Hun-Gurrr and then gone and engineered a Snaptrap from there, rather than just doing Snaptrap. Which is a shame.


    Looking For:


    - Unite Warriors Glaze (Blades)
    - Blue Microchange MC-04 (02) Familia 1500XG (that's the pre-TF Bumblejumper)
    - Car Robots Indy Heat


    All can be loose or packaged, I don't mind.

    My Turtler fell down and the arm broke off. Sheared at the joint. I've superglued the arm onto the body but, yeah, that left shoulder will never move again.

    Hopefully this is a one off freak event and not indicative of the pink plastic being weak or anything.
    I did open up the shoulder of a surplus Combiner Wars Scattershot to see if I could harvest a spare part, but the innards were quite different; they've retooled the shoulders both inside and out.

    It'd be interesting to see how similar the inside is to Hun-Grrr though.
    Also, sucks to hear this happened mate. Especially on a figure that expensive.

    The shoulder is a pain in the sparse to open up, so yeah... I'm not game to have a gander.
