    the convention exclusive has the energon case, convention sticker, and no chromed parts while the mass release has the chromed parts and no energon case.

    Adding to it; the TFCon Commander has yellow along the front of the feet whereas the DIA Commander has red in that area. The silver knee areas on the TFCon are solid color whereas the knee area on the DIA (chromed) have red stripes across the middle.

    Furthermore, the exterior of the TFCon Commander has more red to its outer trailer surface as well as silver striping that lines up with Classics Prime. DIA's is almost entirely blue on the outside and has striping that lines up more with Henkei Convoy.

    Other color differences include red on the TFCon's hands whereas DIA's are entirely black, and the DIA has yellow rear lights only wheras the TFCon has red and yellow.

    Oh, and the silver shoulder missiles of the TFCon are simply white in the DIA set.

    Those're pretty much the basic color/paint differences as best I can describe. Basically the TFCon is meant for the Classics Prime whereas the DIA is meant for Henkei in terms of overall color.

    You can't even really see the differences in robot mode. I do like the Yellow stripes on the original version but i'm fine with mine:dj

    I have both. They're really nice. I do wish the red on D.I.A. Commander was altered a bit to match Henkei Convoy more. I still think I like D.I.A. a little more than Powered (though Powered has better painted details, I prefer the chrome of D.I.A.).

    I only have the D.I.A but it's waiting for a Blue Convoy. Even a KO one would work.
