    Hey Tetsuan Convoy or Gok, there is a bit on the TT Mall page that I've translated through my web browser which says "Also, the included weapons that were canceled in the original are included as they are, allowing you to enjoy the weapon play that you could not do in the original."
    I'm sure that this isn't the most accurate translation, so any idea what exactly they mean here? Are they saying this set has extra weapons not included with Gen Select King Poseidon or do they mean the original BWII release of God Neptune didn't have as many weapons?

    The Tfwiki page for God Neptune (https://tfwiki.net/wiki/God_Neptune_(BWII)) mentions that The set does not include a redeco of Nautilator, and almost all of the weapons and gun-mode stands for the individuals are also missing. I imagine that's what they're referring to.

    Did you mean, a new character was NOT invented? As I was also hoping that they would give us six redeco Seacons and just create a new character for Nautilator.

    I'm guessing that was sarcasm, as there is only five members this time, so should be cheaper.

    From the EB Games listing, which seems to be doing a lot better these days at translating the Japanese product listings...

    In addition, the included weapons that were cancelled in the original are included in this set, so you can enjoy playing with and displaying a whole new range of weapons.
    I'm not too sure what they mean by that though, as this set doesn't appear to have any additional accessories. Each bot has at least one gun, and a sword. Maybe it refers to the original set of BW Seacons in 1998 not having any weapons. It looks like the BW Seacons only came with the combiner parts and "Snaptrap's" sword.

    Its a bit unclear in Japanese as well, but if we keep it within the realms of God Neptune and discard the idea of Pirahnacon, then Griffin's got it right.

    I'd say they are saying it has the weapons that were cancelled from the G1 to with it.

    The price at RK seems good. $160 USD.

    Yes I left out the "not" and I did think they'd create a new character or find some obscure character from some part of fiction to join the team

    I would've gotten this one over King Poseidon if I knew earlier since I prefer the colours (although it's sad it only has 5 robots). Almost wish they announced this one first and then went "Surprise! We secretly had a 6th member for the super complete combiner this whole time!" Plus it would maybe prevent questioning about the removal of one member from the team (even if it is canon.)

    I feel for you. I called God Neptune pretty early on, as I knew TakaraTomy would want to milk the moulds.

    But yes, there's no certainty - we've yet to see a Masterpiece Deep Cover despite the 45 uses of the Lambor mould..


    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.
