    This week we continue our series of collector interviews with another outspoken and well known collector who I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know much better in the last 12 months. We hope you enjoy his insight into a more specific side of the collecting community, the prestigious pre-Transformers. Prepare yourself for more forthright opinions and strong views…

    Ehh, he is not so opinionated.

    BTW, just a quick question. Is there a Diaclone check list somewhere. Just in case I am ever rich.

    On another note, because of you, I have seriously debated selling my whole collection and going strictly after Diaclone. Having said that, if I sold my whole collection, I think I would only be able to afford like 20 pieces.

    I thought this.."I like the G1 Transformers cartoon and comic books but I honestly don’t care about the toys, since they look like an American rip-off of original Japanese projects...Even inserting a Macross Valkyrie between them really sucked" might raise a few backs :D 

    Car Robots or all Diaclone? Japanese or all countries?

    Not quite as good a plan as you (or I) may think. I'm sitting here drooling over an MP Sideswipe and Soundwave, looking at the real possibility of having to sell a bloody Diaclone to fund them.

    Depends what makes you happy at the end of the day. Even with what I've said above, I'd happily drop all my Japanese Diaclones, Mexican and Ceji Transformers at the feet of the first person who delivers me the wave 2 Joustra I am missing.

    All the best
