    Hey guys. I have been collecting for over 20 years, and I probably met some of you at the first 2 TF conventions TFW2005 hosted in Jersey as I was a dealer. I recently started putting up the rest of my collection up because I feel its time to move on, sadly. I was trying to do searches on ebay to find out what an authentic Diaclone Devastator was worth now a days but they are so rare they never turn up. I have 2 and they are both pretty much near mint. One looks like it came out the factory yesterday. The other one has some years hurting on it, but all stickers unapplied complete weapons on trees and so forth (except for 1 set of weapons that broke off). These are orginials and have been in my collection for about 6-7 years now and all have Takara Japan stamped on them.

    Thoughts? I am not selling these anytime soon, but quite a few people have been asking. I paid a small fortune for these things back in the day!

    I watched one go about 6 months ago I think for about $800-$900. It was in decent condition.

    If they are real and they look real probably more than that. Do they have the diorama and the little bag of plastic rocks. Does it have the mountain attached to the bottom of the styrofoam.
    Nevermind I examined the pics that unused one is a gem. You should be able to fetch good money for both of them.

    Those are nice; never realized how much of a difference exists between authentic Diaclone versions and the KO North American versions. Those accessories are very cool; much like Diaclone Raiden's tracks...

    I could imagine these getting about 800 or 900 each.

    Yeah, I saw a bootleg set and there is a WORLD of difference between the 2.

    This is probably one of the nicest pieces in my collection. Hard to part with.

    I'll try and post some pics over the weekend. My office is a mess right now. I don't think pictures will do it justice because of the glare that will result from it. But I will take a nice picture of it. What was that Diaclone/Microman site you were talking about?

    Just look in the Social groups here. Send a invite to join the group. If you are into Diaclone/ Pre-Tf toys that is the place.
