TF-1.com - Diaclone BLACK Sideswipe!

Postby Maz » Sat Aug 18, 2012 9:20 am

In this day and age of vintage Transformers and Diaclone collecting, an age where websites, forums, Facebook, blogs, publications and a strong knowledgeable community have helped expose almost every secret of those venerable toy lines, we don't expect to see anything completely new any more. Maybe the odd Finnish Diaclone packaging variant, a foreign Ceji Joustra release of a favourite with exclusive box artwork or even an Italian GiG pre-Transformer with a mish-mash of Diaclone and Transformers colours or moulding that finally gets confirmed. But to find something completely unheard of and new that nobody knew existed, something that has never been seen by the wider collecting community in approximately 30 years, that is impossible to imagine nowadays, right?

Wrong.

My deepest thanks go to my partners in crime Brandon "Heroic Decepticon" Yap, Gordon "VF1" Yip, Colin "Specimen-17" Pringle for what was one of the most exciting and enjoyable things that I have ever been a part of in this hobby.

You can read Heroic Decepticon's entry on this same item and its discovery [url="http://heroicdecepticon.blogspot.co.uk/2012/08/project-vanguard-pre-transformers.html"]HERE[/url] for more backstory on the source and "Project Vanguard".

All the best

Unbelievable stuff...

I'll just have to settle for my Deep Cover for the time being!

You deserve huge amounts of recognition for your pre-TF work.
