Cobs! The Diaclone master.... I think I have some bad news for you. I think I'm out :-?

I had some serious car trouble this week. A $5000 PIECE of my transmission went, grounding me till (hopefully just) next Wednesday. And apparently the transmission as a whole is worth 20K. It's siphoned off every dollar I have and then some. Now I don't have my little bit of savings, nest egg for MP-44, or anything extra really.

I've been thinking about my Diaclone collection and haven't been feeling great about it for a while. In the sense that I'm a completionist, and I only have about 25% of the line. There's so many repaint's and exclusives, and they aren't cheap. I'm 99% sure I'm pulling the plug, and almost as sure that I'm going t sell off what I have. I could really use the cash, and focus. I'm just spread too thin at the moment (and thank god I'm not collecting a parallel Takara/Hasbro line right now).

I've been having similar thoughts. Not sure I'n all out completely, but I just can't keep up with all these Powered Suits. I want big bots! I don't even have them all. It's all really expensive. all of it. I think I might just aim for more Warruder, and pump the breaks on Diaclone stuff. Super happy with what I have, though.

If you decide to sell. Let's talk.

To be fair, if I could justify it I'd totally buy him. I didn't really care for the mold to begin with (I went with Despotron as my MP Megs) but the toyetic deco just looks gorgeous. Alas, in my current living position I can't afford to "impulse buy" something that expensive, and as nice as he looks I still have my misgivings about MP-36 as a mold.

But there's no doubt, if I were in a position to make the "Megatron Shrine" I've always wanted he would definitely be on it.

Dang dude, I know the feeling of suddenly losing a lot from the savings, had that happen recently too. But glad to see you're still kicking and ready to get back on your feet!

If you do decide to go Dia-no-clone, feel free to reach out to me too dude.

I had that MP-36+ on pre-order, but ended up choosing MP-43 instead. Cobs showed him off a lot and I've enjoyed all the pics I've gotten to see of him!
