Transformers: Generations Selects Deluxe Class Seacon Nautilator
Creature Mode: Nautilator (AKA Lobclow, AKA Lobclaw) is awesome in lobster mode. His colors are perfect, and he’s bigger than most deluxe toys. He bares little resemblance to Rippersnapper whose mold he is based on, but he does share the same claw/hand design as Blot. His creature face is more detailed that the G1, but you can still see the similarities in the design. My only complaint about his lobster mode is that the blue bar his legs connect to don’t properly peg in under his body. There is slot it is supposed to rest in, but one side pops out on mine. It would have been really easy to fix this by making the slot deeper and the peg longer.
Weapon Mode: There is a serious flaw in the design of his gun mode. His creature legs get in the way of mounting him to the hand/base as shown in the instructions. You need to bend up the fingers, and it rests on both the hand/stand and the legs. Not a huge problem, but the proper way to configure him as a gun should have been in the instructions.
Robot Mode: Nautilator looks great in robot mode. He has three weapons, an axe that forms part of Piranacon’s sword, a gun, and his tail that converts to a gun. I love his head sculpt. The only thing I would have liked is a few more paint apps, in both modes.
Overall: Nautilator is pretty awesome. I’ve been waiting for these guys since Combiner Wars, and it was well worth the wait.
