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.

Yeah, I think I'm going to get the three depending on how the other two turn out and just treat them as Masterpiece Powerdashers. I get that TriDasher isn't a car (and come on, that name really spells it out), but a wheeled tank does make more sense next to a jet and a drill tank. Plus they have proper transformations without requiring disassembly.

The cost per package really, I have found it so hard to justify $45 for a small suit.

I would recommend the new epsilon suit or the exclusive red bughead waruard suit; since it comes with a core suit plus the attachments

Wish I knew if they were going to do a release on the “realistic/military” colors (Black/blue/red) like Destroyer and Buffalo....

Broke down and recently picked up then”tank/transport” set (GV legs w/ cannon/trooper seating). Damn some of those prices jump.... also wish they’d do a second release of the.... gama(?) suits.... the black riot maneuver ones....those quickly sold out and doubled in price.

Well zero regrets getting the land cruiser set other than I wish I pulled the trigger when I could have gotten it sub $100. I hope they redo it in destroyer colors; though for now I actually kind of like the difference. All part of that dis-separate parts coming together. The flat bed/hauler is glorious!

I placed a Triverse Pre order on tfsource. We'll see if I keep it, but that bot mode looks really good, and compared to other Diaclone, that's an ok looking price
