Product Description
The Seacons are available in their traditional G1 colors for the first time in over 20 years since their initial release in 1988!

This amazing exclusive comes packaged in an awesome collector gift-box, includes collector cards, includes all 6 figures needed to form Piranacon, 5 black display stands for the 5 smaller figures, and individual weapons for each figure. This is the first time Piranacon has ever been reissued with the G1 color scheme.

The Seacons are a team of Decepticons named for their sea-animal alternate modes. The team is able to merge their bodies and minds to form the gigantic Piranacon. The team members are:


* Snaptrap is the team leader. He rules the other Seacons through fear of force rather than any sort of inspirational leadership qualities. He is, however, very good at what he does - brutally and efficiently taking apart Autobots.

* Nautilator is an underwater specialist, when formed as Piranacon he forms Piranacon's weapon.

* Overbite is interested in only one thing - hunting prey, be it Autobot or luckless human ships that happen to get in his way. He possesses extra limbs to help function on land.

* Seawing is the team's stealth specialist, gliding silently through the water and attacking without warning. He also has designs on being the leader of the group.

* Skalor is disgusting even by Seacon standards, always leaking oil, lubricants and various other fluids so that even the other Seacons try to avoid him.

* Tentakil is the cruelest of all the Seacons - which is saying something. He'll lure opponents to their doom by complimenting them on their battle prowess, letting them think he is an honorable foe - then he'll strike and take them apart. He enjoys tricking them more than actually destroying them.

Although the Seacons' are wildly disparate, their combined mode of Piranacon is a successful combination of their minds. But as all the Seacons love hunting their prey, Piranacon (known in Japan as King Poseidon) is likewise solely dedicated to it without the personality conflicts that paralyse other combiners, and will hunt his prey unceasingly if need be.

This really was the best of all of the G1 transformers!

I had collected all the Seacons when I was a small boy, and remember having hours and hours of fun with them. Sadly they all got stolen. Then, many years later, someone told me there was a reissue!!! YAY!!!

When the new box arrived in the post I was filled with childish glee! I'm 32 for crying out loud, yet these Decepticons reduce me to the maturity level of a 10 year old!

The fact that these Transformers don't just change from robot to vehicle, but change from robot to sea monster to big gun to GIANT KICK ASS ROBOT!!
All the guns, claws and clip on bits are interchangeable so you can create hundreds of combinations.

LOVE IT!

With regards to this reprint:
One or two of the colours have been changed, the sword is no longer sickly pink, but silver, and one or two other very minor colour changes. But it's hardly a problem really.

AMAZINGLY, there is still a couple of flaws in the Seacons that was present in my G1 version as a kid and still here in the re-issue!
Overbite has a gun that when he is in his shark form, is supposed to clip under his chin, but just falls out.
Snap Trap's left hand has a hole for a gun and/or the sword, but was too small for either. Needed to gently scrape a bit with a craft knife to get them to fit. this was also the same all those years ago.

For these reasons I can't give it 5* but I wish I could give it 4.5*

Order arrived in good time and I am one VERY happy customer!

It is a price worthy alternative to the original G1 Piranacon, the only drawbacks are pre applied stickers that is sloppy placed and some colors that is of from the original as Overbites purple has now become pink and Snaptraps head is now teal instead of black.

Wow when i first opened this ,the excitement made me so hard ,i remember 20 years ago how erect this toy made me this one is no different .ok there are a couple of color differences with this reissue but hey who cares about that ,we in the G1 World are just happy that these classic toys are being reissued once again.The reported Q C issues that the TFC have been piping on about on various transformers forums are B.S .The toy is well made and sturdy and every thing clicks in to place like it's supposed to .My only complaint is the decals which are already applied ,but otherwise this is a terrific addition to your G1 collection.
