    Looks like MechFans Toys, (re)makers of Transformers Legends sized toys, has decided to expand to to making copycat Takara Diaclone toys. This is a list of toys from their weibo page...

    I like the concept of the Diaclone reboot, and this might bring it inside my budget.

    We've known about this for a while. They had a gray prototype of Diabattles a while back. A new color mech suit comes with their Diaclone colored Devastator and they're showing Diaclone drivers apparently coming with dx9 Dinobots.

    I have one of each of the official Diaclone sets. The only things that would make me get these (in addition to the originals) are 1) they HAVE to be at least as good quality as the original, 2) the price has to be really really good. Other than that, I would prefer to get colors of things that aren't in the official lineup. I look forward to getting the Diaclone Devastator with the mech.

    I want a set of those Dia-naughts. I wonder if they'll offer sets of those?

    Money saved.

    I don't like the style of the line as they seem very bland to me.

    Power to those who do like them.

    This has me more geeked than anything else they're putting out (all their other KOs, for the most part, are at a weird 'tweener' scale that doesn't match anything else I have). I really want the Diaclone toys but I can't justify the prices (given all the TF stuff coming out that I want more). If I can get Dia Battles for about $50, I'm all over it!

    I've purchased at least one of everything Takara has put out in the Diaclone reboot. Triples of a few of the Powered Suits. However, the price is ridiculous. Way beyond a fair price. I hope MechFans Toys makes these in the same size. I'll buy a ton

    How they choose to size this will be crucial for me, I'm all for their upscaling the Legends they do because most of the time they are adding size to a character that could have done with more (Sixshot etc) but already having one of almost everything from the official Reboot line there wouldn't be much point getting these if they were bigger. It's one of the few times where size/scale really matters to me.

    I'll watch with interest.

    Here’s the official solicit for the KO DA-01

    This is from user w00t showing that the MFT Sixshot comes with a (new colored!) mech as well.

    And here’s my pic of the orange mech that comes with MFT Diaclone Hulkie

    I wish they had sold the orange mech suit by itself. I have an original green Hulkie and the diaclone ko doesn't appeal to me. I've got all the official releases up to this point, but I would love some more of the suits in original colors. I ordered the Sixshot just for the blue and white suit.

    Like others have said, I’d really be interested in a more military style color scheme, hopefully with Tampo of typical military markings.

    I did the same exact thing with Sixshot. :lol 

    I’m up for any colors or decks that TT doesn’t already have.

    Right? I figured for that price they would be big. I’d feel ripped off paying $200 for a voyager.

    I'll be getting every single KO Diaclone thing they release, as I cant afford the originals. How tall are the human figures? It would be cool if these scaled with the ne B2 Five Acid Rain stuff.

    I'm interested in these but I wish they'd do some color variations rather than straight up copies of the originals.

    Well they are expensive but they aren’t $200. $150 from BBTS, probably about $120 shipped if you got a good preorder price from one of the Japanese sites.

    The humans are very small. About 3 cm, or a little over an inch.
