    The title says it all. This is a thread for people over 30 years.

    I´d sure like to know what your first Diaclone Transformer was and if you still keep it (them).
    Please post a picture if you can.

    Mine was a silver gun (not Megatron), which I no longer have, cos one of the legs was broken and my mom threw it to the trash :eek:  I have forgotten his name, the torso was silver and the legs black.
    Edit:His name was "Robocolt"[​IMG]

    Diaclone Soundwave, which was called " Cassette Man". Bought him at the Chinese grocery store for five bucks. Sadly, he is long gone...

    Red Sunstreaker (don't remember his Diaclone name). Miraculously I still have everything but his missiles.

    Soundwave was not a Diaclone toy.

    I.e. "Diaclone" is not synonymous for "pre-Transformer".

    They seem to have needed to tell you 6 times he takes cassettes on his stickers.

    I only have a couple of Diaclone toys as far as I can recall - they are Powerdashers. I do have a few Micronauts though. I didn't bother very much with the Vintage Microman as I like the newer ones more.

    If you know nobody will care, just don't bother.

    I don't recall having any pre-Transformer toy except maybe for a transformable lock. Does that count?

    We had one of the powerdashers also, I believe it was my brothers, and it was brutally beaten up and was floating somewhere deep inside the lego box we had.
