Takara did make Waruder toys, but not many. Scroll to the bottom of to see them all.

Upon further study. I think all those reveals are of Diaclone mechs, not Waruder ones. They share far too many characteristics/actual parts with Dia-Battles. But only time and bad translations will tell. :-P

Great Robot Base standing behind Big Powered is encouraging for future releases. I know his head is on all diaclone stuff so he's practically bound to get a remake somewhere down the line, but still. Destruction and Assault look like they're heavy retools of dia battles, but Destruction looks so wildly different I might get it.

yeah, I've been thinking the same thing, though the head isn't really *terrible* for magmatron either. The only thing that I'm really trying to puzzle out is incorporating that extra parts jet as a shield on his left side or something (shades of the bulky arm covering his sea dino kinda makes)

Just got the V2 version. My take will be different. As the set is already awesome and so on, great light piping....interactivity and playtime options are really its selling point plus the nostalgia.

What to watch out for.

1. Head spring gimmick. Those who have it knows what we mean. The selling point and a bit of it's Achilles heels. And the plastic bar on the top of the chest just infront of the robo head/chin, kind off thin.

2. The pseudo tank treads should have at least 1 set of rolling wheels. Setting it up a little forward won't have had affected the transformation

3. Be careful when detaching the thigh parts. make sure to loosen the front clamps fist

4. Paint chipping, especially when you have sharp nails. I scratched the disc patterns on the side of his knee. What I thought was dirt was actually a paint chip which I tried to remove with my nail. Only a one frickin' part was painted thin and did not set in unlike the other silver paint apps. :BOOM: I'm gonna look for some Tamiya paint pens now.

5. The clamp connectors of the glider cockpit. Potential breakage.

Andddddddddddddddd.....can't wait to get subsequent releases for this toyline. :x

TakaraTomy Diaclone Reboot: Wonderfest Summer 2016 Reveals

PostPosted: Sun Jul 24, 2016 8:52 pm
by shajaki
Fresh from the floor of the Wonderfest Summer 2016 are some great new display shots of the TakaraTomy's Diaclone Reboot line from TagHobby and Amiami! Up first are the Powered Suits first revealed in proto-type grey at the Tokyo Toy Show, which now appear to be in the final stages and in color. There are varying types and colors apparently, but what we know for sure so far is that they are being released as "System Set A" in red and "System Set B" in blue, each with a Dia-Naught pilot and a drop ship container (and it looks like they can attach to Dia-Battles in jet mode). Next is an 8-pack set of Dia-Naughts, though colors may vary as early store solicits showed them as yellow, red, and black, while at the show they are black and blue. After that is a Powered Suit Armored Ground Transport, which can hold multiple Naughts and Suits. Next up is what seems to be a remold of Dia-Battles V2 which has some brand new armaments. And last but certainly not least are some official images from TakaraTomy themselves of the aforementioned Powered Suits. Keep scrolling to see the slew of images, and stay tuned to Seibertron.com: home for the best Galleries and Conversation around!

Oh I hope those little guys aren't too expensive. I'm not huge into diaclone but I'd like some of those little mechs for some human forces for my transformers.
