Kinda meh on this figure, I was hoping for something better. TBH, I've seen customs that look better than this one.

Wow, Sea Hawk looks like a total fat-ass.

That's okay, though. I'm going to give him Randor's chalice and pretend that after being spurned by Princess Adora, he just let himself go.
Damnit, I need a MOTU ham-hock. Or roast whatever.

This is one that seems to have been given more significance by us fans than he ever really had. I guess the love interest thing for She-Ra is what probably did it. I'm glad we're getting him, but I agree with those who say he looks a little fat and didn't quite come out right. He's underwhelming. And the Horsemen meant well with his vest, but it might be the first thing they've sculpted for this line that I'd say actually looks bad.

This is one of several instances where a thinner buck would have been the smart way to go!! He's just too big for his "clothes", he looks wayyy too beefy!!! LOL!! I call this a fail!!

They really dropped the ball on this one.

His sides are far too bulky.

This is the first time I have to say... The 4H did a really bad job on this guy. What were they thinking? Usually it's Mattel's design team that messes things up, but wow! Just wow!

wow they phoned that one in.....& He's not fat its glandular.......His father Falcon didn't disappear Seahawk ate him.....His ship crew prolly regrets installing that deep-fat fryer in the galley for Xmas.......what do you do w/a chubby sailor what do you do w/a chubby sailor(that sounds like a new unnatural act, do you wanta chubby sailor?? haha)....the short answers are leave him at Long Johns & never take him to lobster fest at RL's.....but on the positive side we now have confirmed that She-Ra is a chubby chaser awwwsss yeah I have a chance......well maybe Seahawk became a stay at home dad, got relaxed lost his edge, finishes the excess food he & she-ra's children waste...while she's out saving the other world he's home watching Dr Oz & Judge Judy swashbuckling his way to the bottom of a Costco sized bag of Cheetos......their hotdogs & pizza slices from the store kitchen are as addictive as She-ra's lust for riding unicorns & designing glittery outfits....some days I'm glad I couldn't afford the subs....pass on this fig....

I had literally no interest in this guy in the first place... then the figure looks like crap. Might be the easiest pass in the line so far.

And Matty made him subscription only hahaha. Jokers.

Well, he is one of those classic POP figures that never got a toy and isn't another Barbie Doll. So his inclusion makes sense, and I can actually agree with any assertions of fan-demanded-ness.

However, the execution for such a long-awaited figure is pretty sad. It just blows my mind that no one pre-production took a look at him and thought, "maybe we should slim him down a little."

Regardless, there's still something kitschy and fun about a fat-ass pirate captain. I dare say that despite hailing from another realm of beef-caked denizens, Seahawk should have always been a fatty.

The main motivational factor in my deciding to get the Filmation sub was the hint that we were most likely getting Sea Hawk. I always thought he was a well designed Filamtion character... and had the utmost faith that the figure would be handled in the usual AWESOME fashion. Then come reveal time, we get this piece of crap. Upon pondering, I realize that Mattel is pinching pennies even more now. As the line continues I foresee more and more figures getting the, "well, it didn't come out quite the way we wanted it, but... we'll stick with it and sell it." treatment. I think King He-Man was another example of a failed item that was released to the public. His distorted face is obviously a casting/tooling flaw... but Neitlich will of course say, "they meant to do that." Prices will continue to rise wile paint apps and other things will be reduced... same #$## as always.

just my opinion, I couldnt care less, the toys of this generation are way much better, accurately resembling the characters they represent. I just thought, if I was able to appreciate the dorky toys of the 80s, don't get me wrong, having bought and owned those figures, gave me some great childhood, but compared to what we have now, those don't come close. and there will always be imperfections, but I rather have this one, than none at all.

...and that is why Mattel will continue to give us half fast, low quality products.

Whoever trades you will probably ask for $20 more to cover the extra weight of shipping Seahawk's fat ass.
