Could very well be. Among the confirmed existing prototypes I see:

- BW Neo Unicron (named Neo Unicron)
- Binaltech/Alternator Jazz as a Porsche 986
- Binaltech Black Widow / Rumble? (ended up as BT Arcee)

I also spot:

- Blue Henkei Bumble
- A Swindle redeco of Universe Hound

Anyone know who the oversized revolver is above the techno-colored devastator? Also how long do you think we have to wait before we get a masterpiece diaclone Magnus repaint?

That's the third Microchange Gun Robo. Two of the Gn Robo, the Walther P38 and M1910 Browning, were turned into Megatron and Browning but the third, a S&W .44 Magnum Revolver, was Microman only.
And that "techno-color" Devastator? His first Diaclone deco ;)

So when the hell can we expect to see a MP :CON: leader that surpases the flaws that MP Megatron has... :-?.

And of course the latest images of Star Saber make me want this MP more and more. It will be a part of the select few MP that I own. :VEHI:

That Diaclone Hoist looks like a Rodimus that let himself go.

Each pic of star saber just makes me want him more. That diaclone display is wonderful, I even spotted the trainbots who didn't get released (in Japan) till the Headmasters toyline, although who's the red bot just to the left of powered convoy Magnus? Did diaclone have any fiction at all to go with it?

Diaclone did get somewhat of a story during the later years, basically humans versus the insectoid Waruder race. That's right: the Insecticons were bad guy mecha :lol:
That red robot is Powered Buggy, you can consider it an upgraded transforming Roller. He was omitted from all Transformer releases.

The forearms on Star Saber are huge, like dealbreaker huge.

I noticed a beast wars Soundwave in one of the pics. Is he a rarity or something?

Star Saber is huge!
I'll get him for sure.
And please, make that Unicron, you can never have enough Unicrons.

And figures I've never seen before, great pictures!

Thanks :D I've always wondered about diaclone, never expected that the insecticons were the main bars :lol: Seems a bit unfair when you line them up against each other.

That unicron, as impressive as it is, why does everyone go crazy about it? People talk about the Armada mold having it's planet shell on its back, Neo Unicron has a whole half of a planet on his back. :???: I know it's the 3rd prototype of a unicron toy (I think at least), the robot mode is nice if you ignore the kibble but I think the one we actually got is better...Why do I get the feeling I've just painted a target on my back...

Yeah, Star Saber is pretty massive. And his 'shirt-cuffs' look huge. :lol: It's a bit of a shock to see him in his Playskool colors, but that's Star Saber. He still looks pretty awesome. I'm a little scared to find out what this guy is going to cost.
