    I have a chance to get one of these, are they worthwhile or should I hold out for the Diaclone version?

    I've got one and it looks really sharp in vehicle mode...

    Is the Diaclone version the white police car?

    No the Diaclone version would be the same as the red sunstreaker. I have a chance to pick the Diakrone version up for 80.00. I was just wondering if it was worth it.

    If it's complete and in decent condition, i'd say go for it.

    It is loose and does look to be in very good condition.

    The Diaclone version (released by Takara in Japan) was available in red, with a police version following later.

    The Diakron version (released by Takara in the USA) was red.

    Hasbro's Transformers version was yellow.

    And then GiG released a yellow version (based on Hasbro's Transformers version) as part of their "Trasformer" line in Italy, which was supposedly based solely on their Diaclone license from Takara.

    Thanks for the info, how can one tell the difference between the US and Japanese versions; any difference in value? I paid $40 canadian (about $35 USD) for a loose incomplete one a while back (good shape though); I'm wondering whether I got ripped off, lol! I have a gut feelin' I did, still a nice piece...
