    So im on a diaclone high right now.

    I got my Ehobby New Year's Special Deepcover about a month ago. I wanted it so i could make my very own Powered Convoy Deluxe set. However the thing that bugged me the most is the stupid star decal on the side of Deep Cover.

    Here is what it looks like stock.

    Deepcover_Car_8 - Deepcover eHobby Exclusive - TFW2005.COM


    I was not satisfied with that. After seeing how Clampdown and the real Diaclone Police Sideswipe are different I researched and found that the real diaclone black sideswipe has an entirely different logo. It is the Lamborghini logo that should be on the side of the car.

    Thanks to Himiwari for providing pictures of the real thing for me.


    I also didnt like how my ehobby Crosscut was missing the "City" license plates so I made those too out of a special chrome decal for cd labels.


    For reference here is the real black sideswipe decal. again thanks goes to Himiwari for taking this rare piece of Pre-TF history out to take pics for me.

    And here is my version.

    Here is a comparison of the real Diaclone City S and Ehobby Crosscut.

    And my chrome decal version. I need to work on a Honda "H" logo like the real diaclone has and the CVCC II logo on the back of the car.

    huh? No. I guess you think these are repaints of RID? then no. These are Ehobby reissues of Pre-TFs aka Diaclone. The Silver Skids aka Ehobby Crosscut is a rare diaclone toy that came in a two pack with a blue hoist.

    The black sideswipe aka Ehobby Deepcover is also an uber rare diaclone toy that only came in a super rare diaclone set with a red mirage and powered convoy.

    Very nice!


    Are you making any more decal sets, or are these one-offs?

    I love Diaclone. Even though I'll probably never own any of them.
