The Seacons are Targetmasters[edit]

The Seacons are Targetmasters accoring to the text on the box/cards which states in bold letters "TRANSFORMS FROM MONSTER TO ROBOT TO TARGETMASTER WEAPON AND BACK!" You can see it on this link:

http://www.cobraislandtoys.com/tf/1988/overbite.html

They are slightly different that most other Targetmaster toys in that the 5 smaller robots each have a gun mode, which can be wielded by Piranacon's robot mode, who is their bigger Targetmaster partner. It is official from Hasbro though.

Fair enough. My apologies, as I didn't think it was a Targetmaster in the actual sense of the word (you know, binary bonded to Nebulans,etc). SMegatron 11:07, 3 January 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:King poseidon.jpg[edit]

I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page.

"Jawbreaker" name[edit]

Is there any substantial evidence that there was a version of the toy that was officially released under the name "Jawbreaker" anywhere in Europe? As far as I can tell, that's one of those ooooold urban legends from the early days of the Transformers online fandom. He was called "Jawbreaker" in the UK comics, which might have simply been an error based on the fact that the toy's weapon is called the "Jawbreaker cannon". But the toy? I've asked several UK fans, and they all said that the toy was sold as "Overbite" in the UK. So unless anyone can provide evidence (like, a packaging photo or an instructions scan or something) that officially refers to the toy as "Jawbreaker" outside the pages of a comic, I call BS on this.--87.164.124.71 (talk) 18:24, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

I have only found the entry in the comics, where he was called Jawbreaker. It was Marvel UK Transformers issue #160, page 4 where Ramjet called him Jawbreaker. I think I'll change it to specifically say he was called Jawbreaker in the UK comics, unless anyone has any objections. Mathewignash (talk) 23:58, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

Issue 6? You sure? The Seacons' first appearance was UK issue 152 (where Overbite is indeed called "Jawbreaker"). However, there was apparently a later issue (which I don't have to back it up first-hand) where a UK reader inquires about the name... since the toy was supposedly indeed sold as "Overbite" in the UK. Considering the toy's instructions call the included weapon "Jawbreaker Cannon"; it's likely that Simon Furman either got a new names mixed up, or "Jawbreaker" was an earlier working name for the toy.--87.164.95.215 (talk) 15:11, 31 July 2008 (UTC)
Oh, and the US Seacons giftset only contained five toys. Nautilator was not included.--87.164.95.215 (talk) 15:12, 31 July 2008 (UTC)
Edited above. The numbers on my keyboard are busted. It's issue 160 page 4. Mathewignash (talk) 21:38, 31 July 2008 (UTC)
