G1 Original Seacons!

Posted by:

Easter weekend treats early!   Thought everyone might enjoy seeing the whole team at once!  Check out the 1988 Transformers Section where you'll find SEVEN all new pages for the G1 original Seacons:

NAUTILATOR, OVERBITE, SEAWING, SKALOR, SNAPTRAP, TENTAKIL and of course, PIRANACON!  Dig those funky colors!

Don't get too accustomed to the whole 7 new character pages per day routine!  Can you tell that I'm a little anxious to get this section polished off so we can move on to new subjects!  :)

The one thing I'll say about these toys;  this team, perhaps more than any other was the subject of much debate amongst us Lukis brothers back in the late 80's, as to who would get to buy and own them!   In the end, it was Brian who won the negotiation!  Wow, how'd that happen?

"I'm a little anxious to get this section polished off so we can move on to bigger and badder subjects!"

Like 2009?


Anyway, these guys were somewhat cool. They made more of an appearance in the U.K. comics (Enemy Action) than they did in the U.S. comics. The Seacons also made some appearances in the TV show Masterforce but the limbs were drones rather than sentient beings like in the U.S. series.

I don't think Overbite is part of the Predator Attack Mini-Con team but I do believe he is the mechanical shark named Overbite in Universe (the one repainted from Hellscream and came with Universe Repugnus).

>>Like 2009?
Well YEAH! as just one of many examples!

Ah, yes. The Seacons. I've personally always prefered their Beast Wars II counterparts to their G1/Masterforce versions. In Beast Wars II they all had personalities, in Masterforce they were all drones with the exception of Snaptrap.

Yes, yes, YES!!!

FINALLY! The Seacons! I loved these guys in Masterforce! Having them as drones with Turtler as their single sentient leader made it there could be a whole army of these guys. Not to mention how awesome their combined form was. KING... POSEIDON!!!

Then he came back in the Zone OVA only to meet his death, but the way he went out with a bang was just epic!

I liked this guy so much that I recently made a mask in his image at school. I'm trying to get images of it so I can post them online and hopefully get them in the Alterations section.

Finally, I had these guys as a kid, but they were stolen alongside with about a hundred others... :(. They still look amazing to me, still love the colors.

you guys got 2 nautilator galleries one of them is under seawing. Aside from that great figures.

Oh and NoRemorse79, you should really consider taking pics of them and burning them onto a disk incase that happens again. You know, just so you have proof(or some kinda insuance thing).

Like so many others, I never had these guys as a kid (family didn't have a lot of money), but they always looked cool. Even the odd color scheme didn't look bad.

By the time I got all the limbs, I couldn't save up fast enough for Snap Trap. But I just got him off e-bay 2 yrs. ago and Piranacon sits on the shelf towering over Menasor and G2 Devastator.

Oh, man I love these guys! I have Snaptrap, and need to complete him really badly.

Since we're on the subject of fish, I just got back from New York, and I would recommend this one place on the lower east side that specializes in sweet treats and fish.

Thanks for the heads up Prime13. Problem solved.

Sorry Prime13, it was back in the early 90's, I think it was in 1991 when I was 12... Back then you were glad to have a computer at all.
