I've always been kinda lukewarm on Seaspray. Had his toy as a child (I think), but he never made a strong impression on me. I mean, I don't dislike him. It's just that also I'm not in love with him or anything.
But I am actually pretty taken with this new Titans Return Seaspray! And I'll be blunt with you as to why: dude's FAT. He's short and stout and he's got a tum and his feet are enormous. He's a cute little dude. His rotundity adds a bit of character in a world where nearly all of your robots are either Bruce Timmy He-Man chests or skinny stickmen.
(The He-Man chest look was Seaspray's previous toy, by the way. He was a real broadshouldered V-torsoed dynamo. He was Star-Lord Chris Pratt instead of the more traditional, cuddlier Parks and Recreation Chris Pratt.)
However, his tummy detaches and becomes a... weapon? Some sort of missle-launching pod. And under his tummy, he's got flat abs. And we older fans, we know that his tum-tum should be there. It's drawn right into his cartoon animation model. But I guess it's detachable now, and he can wave his gut around at you, while looking all svelt and buff for the kiddos following the instructions insert. But we older fans know. We know the truth.
(I mean, like, generally, if you're going to make a detachable weapon out of something on Seaspray, you think you'd go for the thing behind his head, with the spinny fans? And not his intestines? But no, clip that chub chub right off and put it in his hand, sure. This pizza-box-shaped thing is a weapon and not the blades beyind his head.)
Seaspray transforms standardly enough, as you'd expect. Feet extend out, arms pull from sides, yadda yadda. The only truly disappointing bit is the head just hides behind a little flip-up panel. It's not even really very hidden. It's more like Seaspray was wearing a bib, like at a crabshack or whatever, and the wind blew it up in his face. You can definitely still see the head itself from most angles. There's just a small little nub there covering his face.
There's also a compartment you can open up in the back where you can fit a Titan Master head-dude figure. If you want.
And he's got the name of his mermaid girlfriend tattooed on his arm.
You heard me.
