    I found these at amazon jp and thought I might share :) 
    From the price, I am guessing they are Hotwheels/Matchbox car size, but details aren't known yet. The listing also says it uses a battery. Due out 31 July.
    They are called DiaRobo. This company, Agatsuma is a toy company known for the products for younger children, but they also own the oldest Japanese miniature car brand, DiaPet.
    Nissan Fairlady Z Roidcop (police car)
    Fairlady Z Protoroid (silver)
    Fairlady Z Zeroid (orange)
    Toyota Hi-Ace Straterex (fire brigade van)
    Hi-Ace Rexporter (silver)
    Hi-Ace Medicalrex (ambulance)
    No images, but there are also listings for Toyota FJ Cruiser bots (bule and yellow).

    Looks so cool. The red car looks great, and the gorilla jeep is so fitting for that car.

    I will definitely be looking forward to this.

    Oooh...I love the old-school look of these. I'm going to have to track down a Protoroid.

    My favorite one is the orange Nissan Z, I'm not sure which Rex is my favorite.

    I also like that red robot from Gyrozetter.

    The toys still worry me as to their designs being viable or not, but i suppose at Hot Wheels size their only competition...i mena, they're only up against the Spychangers....


    ...while Crosswise, Artfire, Counter Arrow and co. were cool, they don't put up too much of a fight design wise.

    I preordered the red Arcadia, toys are cheap enough to have one to see what its like, the robots look pretty posable.

    Yeah, I had to preorder the red Arcadia as well (larger version). If Basara's fire valkyrie from Macross 7 was a transforming car it would look exactly like that. :lol

    In 20xx Technoroid are being created.
    Bad people took advantage of the mindless Technoroid and used them in criminal acts.
    A new kind of Technoroid are being introduced to counter the bad robots. They are the Diarobo.
    In order to communicate (dialog) with human and have problems solved the Diarobo adapted the function to "change" their forms.
    Today you can join the Diarobo to keep your city a safe place.

    Wave 1 is out now and I bought silver Nissan Skyline Z(Protoroid). transformation is fairly easy and parts are tight and sharp, paints are clean. not too good as Transformers, but overall it's a nice fun toy. will buy Hiace(rex) later.

    I ordered four of these (1 of each mold, one more Fairlady) from the AmiAmi backorders, they got me intrigued~ Probably won't have 'em in hand until the end of the month or early next though.

    yeah, I looked ALL OVER for a place to get the Fairlady two months ago and didn't see that AmiAmi had them until they were at the sold out/backorder status. Hopefully they can line one up for me.
