Hasbro Transformers Hunt for the Decepticons Sea Spray Action FigureBecause some fans like to argue about the obvious, Sea Spray quickly became a discussion topic-- specifically, if this toy was meant to be a "movieverse" Transformers toy which tied into the Michael Bay films, or was it a "classics" toy that was, for all intents and purposes, a new version of the original 1980s minibot. Well, it's a movie toy, which you can tell by engaging in such activities as examining the toy. (Sorry to ruin your fun speculating. You're like those people that thought Palpatine and Sidious were different characters back in 1999.)

If you take a good look at his legs, well, it's pretty much non-G1/classic in appearance right there. But hey, feel free to operate under a delusion if it makes you happy.

But anyway. How is it? I'd say pretty good. Hasbro and their Japanese design partners went nuts here, giving the character Seapsray a new name, "Sea Spray," and some actual honest-to-goodness water gear. Does a 20-foot tall multi-ton robot need swim fins, goggles, and harpoons? Probably not, but they went ahead and gave this mechanoid all the gear of Jacques Cousteau's dreams. Themed gear isn't at all unusual in Transformers, but flip-out swim fins in the feet is pretty unusual. Sea Spray's head has a great range of movement, so he can tilt his noggin and be posed as if he's swimming under the waves of the sea, something you totally shouldn't do with this kind of toy as to avoid.... wetness. He has no problem holding his guns, and the firing mechanisms work well.

This was supposedly designed specifically for Breacher, as most other Scout-class toys don't quite fit. I have been informed that in vehicle mode, Sea Spray makes an ideal carrying device for your mobile phone. The hovercraft has rolling wheels and poseable turbines, plus you can see the silver "bars" near the canopy which seem to be designed for the clip-on weapons (see: Breacher, Darkmount) although it seems that the clips could easily scrape off the silver paint. So yeah, don't do that.

Japan fans, take note: a repainted version of this toy will be coming out in Japan with bright yellow parts instead of the bronzey gold. Some fans are speculating the brown elements in the US version could fall victim to the "gold plastic syndrome" which causes some older toys to crumble with time, but generally this isn't an issue for over 10 years. As such, if it's 2020, be very careful when you play with this toy (unless confirmed otherwise as this is just speculation at this stage), or just buy the Japanese release and consider everything to be A-OK.
