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.

I am preparing myself for how small Raptor Head is going to be... I for some reason... was thinking it'd be more on scale with Buffalo or Dia Battles... but I think the leg units are roughly the height of a "standard" suit... So they're not going to be much larger than the +4 combination... other than leaner/meaner looking...

You know, I'm confused. I have it on pre-order with Ami Ami, and I had received an email stating the release got pushed back. Checking their listing on the site, the release date is still Feb. Was it originally January? I thought it was always Feb.
Anyway, do you have it on Pre-order? If so from where, and did you receive a any info on a release date change?

I have it on pre-order through BBTS (I know not the smartest, but I really keep getting on the jumping off the fence.... and they’re easy to work with). But no, I haven’t heard anything about delays or arrivals. Was surprised to find the video to be honest.

Well, I guess it will release when it releases. :lol:
You probably know this, but you can save a good 30-35% (usually) by pre-ordering from a few different Japanese retailers. I mostly go through Ami Ami for all my imports, and they always offer the nice discount, and a plethora of shipping options. BUT, you can not cancel pre-orders. So, if you're fence hoping, BBTS is a safe bet. ;)^

Thanks Cobo! Yeah, also been a bit gun shy since I forgot about a Devastator and MP Megs pre-order that got warehoused. Ordered 3 months later from a different place >_>”. So.... now I got an extra Devy and Megs. I should really rehome those
