Under the Sea - Photogallery [part 3]

Previous chapter: Photogallery part 2 - The Toys

This is the final Under the Sea gallery. It focuses on the juicy part of this beautiful set; juicy for the extremely obsessive collector at least.

This set is not only 100% complete, in that it has all the toys, their parts, weapons, instructions and offer catalogues, but it has more.

I would consider the below as the 'bonus' part of this set:
  • unused sticker sheets for Nautilator and Overbite;
  • complete packing bubble and cardboard inserts for Snap Trap;
  • complete cardback packaging with little plastic insert tray for all 5 carded Seacons; and
  • unpunched cardbacks for all 5 carded Seacons
Short of an MOSC/MISB set, I believe that this is possibly that best and 'most complete' set of Seacons that can be obtained. I am so impressed that I gawk at it for unspecified periods of time on a daily basis.

There is still one thing that intrigues me about this set- how could the original owner bear to part with such a perfect set of Seacons?

So I asked; and so I got a reply.
