TakaraTomy Diaclone Reboot: Discussion Thread

Do you collect other toys besides Transformers? Maybe you've got a Masters of the Universe collection you'd like to show off, or maybe you like Thundercats, Voltron, G.I.Joe, Power Rangers, Star Wars, Wrestling, or any of the various comic book toy lines. Please keep the discussions here to non-Transformers toy lines.

HLJ have the big guy up for order.
Works out to just under $300AU. Well out of my price range, and I shudder to think how much the shipping would be!

But hey, I may win the lottery on Saturday night. I may also be crushed by a plummeting toilet seat that has some how come out of the International Space Station. Figure the odds are about the same.

I saw.... I'm just weighing my options at the moment... :-?

Normally I'd just preorder it with little thought. I mean, I do think about it. But it's more like "November release eh? Looks like a problem for November Shawn!". Sometimes I really hate past Shawn :lol:

I realise that getting your car sorted out is tempting, but c'mon. You're in the real world now. You've gotta start considering priorities :-P

A new Powered Suit arrived in the mail this past week.

Image

The C Type suit is supposed to be the Utilitron constructobot load lifter type.

Image

Hence the cool hydrauliclaws.

Image

I love the big bubble canopy on this one.

He does come with a blaster rifle too, in case the Waruder breach the main defenses.

Image

Because who doesn't love chicken walker mode?

Image

Then there was that time, when all hope was surely lost, but Dale from Cargo Bay 6 single handedly drove the Waruder out of Moon Base, and saved the day.

Image
Dale!!!

The first word that springs to mind to describe that little guy is "dinky".

And I'm on the bubble wagon as well, it really helps to make the figure.

It really does. I wasn't expecting that. Those pilots are SO SMALL. Seriously, they're like half the size of a Titan Master. And to see those small mech suits with an EVEN SMALLER figure piloting it is something else :shock:

Mandarake! A couple popped up on the 'Bay here and there, but were 120ish CAD shipped, whereas Mandy was around 90 shipped if I recall. Expensive but still doable! ;)^
