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.

With a name like Big Powered, I doubt much pulling out actually happens.

This may be blasphemy on this thread, but I get serious vehicle Voltron vibes from these big guys. Or maybe I just need TakTom to make a VV in DiaStyle :-?

EDIT: How did I miss this?!

I've started to become more interested in these sets, so i've ordered a small one from HLJ (the DA-09, currently on backorder) to test the waters. If i like it, i might hop on the Diaclone train with you guys.

Wilcosu, you have such a cool wide and varied eclectic love for robots and heros, I think you'd really appreciate the esthetics and construction of these super robots.
And there's plenty of room on the train, for sure. In fact we'll save you a window seat.
DA-09 is a Powered Suit, right? Get ready for some big tiny fun! ;)^


Oh. And while I'm here......

I have a feeling i'm going to like them, but i want to try it first :)
And call me Wilco, please :) The su35 is from a russian fighterplane.
DA-09 is indeed one of the powered suits, it looks interesting.

Crap! I've been calling you Wilcosu for ages. Thanks for setting me straight.

Guys! He is absolutely beautiful! And Powered!

I was able to fiddle with a couple of vehicle modes, and then just get him into Big Powered mode before my eye lids gave out on me.
At the rate I'm going with time available to play lately, it's going to take all of December to unlock his full potential.
Looks like it should be a fun month!

Look at this head sculpt! Just monkey flipping gorgeous!

So how tall is he exactly?

And can anything be done about that big red chest/stomach area?

It is dumb just how awesome that thing is. I watched the review and that was a mistake. Anyone looking to buy a kidney? Cockpit thingy in the chest is definitely the superior way to go ;)^

The playability of big powered is off the charts, just moving from mode to mode is playing in fiction, flying the parts around to dock them together. Bah my brain hurts now #-o
