Toy News: Takara Tomy Posts King Poseidon Photos

Over the past few months fans have seen the reveal and then pre-orders go up for a series of Generations Selects Seacons. These heavily retooled figures from previous lines represent the army of shock troops featured in the G1 "Masterforce" cartoon. However, photos of their combined form, King Poseidon have been scarce except for some shots of a grey model at toy shows in Japan. Now thanks to the Takara Tomy Twitter Feed we now have a look at King Poseidon!
