    Hi there,
    I've got a complete C9+ mint DIACLONE RAVAGE (ORIGINAL, NOT THE E-HOBBY RE-ISSUE FROM LAST YEAR) for sale. I have an "american/english" diaclone box (KO?) with both plastic insert (KO?) and clear cassette case (the paper is authentic - japanese writing as opposed to english). The box is roughed up and the plastic window is missing.

    If seriously interested please PM a fair offer. I accept Paypal, MO's, & Certified Cheques.
    Thanks for your time!

    EDIT #1 - IT SHOULD BE CORRECTLY LABELLED "MICROCHANGE" AND NOT "DIACLONE" RAVAGE.
    EDIT #2 - FOR CLARIFICATION PURPOSES, THE TOY AND BOX WERE ORIGINALLY BOUGHT SEPARATELY, NOT TOGETHER.

    Dude, next time, before you post your opinions, please do me the courtesy of PM'ing me to let me know why you think it's a KO. As I stated in the first post, I think the box may be a KO (based on the photo of the japanese box at the bottom of my first post), but the figure NEVER came with the box. I put them together to make the item more sellable.

    From the pictures I've seen and info I read on the Internet and TF-based collector's books, and based on the slight discoloration of the diecast (from presumably 30 years of exposure to air), I have no reason to believe that the toy is a fake.

    The top Ravage is a diaclone/microchange re-issue, the middle is the original one I'm trying to sell, and the bottom one is a KO (no 'Japan' nor 'Takara' on the cassette side; lettering font style is different, and the holes are too small for the rockets). Compare my original to the MISB original (at the bottom of my first post).

    EDIT #1 - EDITTED THE POST, SINCE I OVERREACTED TO THE PREVIOUS ONE.

    First of all, YES this is a Diaclone. The box and insert are from the KO Micro Change series. The clear case might be an original if it says Tarara on it. The paper cover that is in the clear case is Diaclone. If you look closely you will see that Ravage has Takara on it. The reissue has Japan and the Diaclone has Takara. The KO has Cassette on it. So yes this is an original Diaclone. Take it from me, I have several and while I am not an expert I have done a lot of research on Diaclones.

    Replied to your PM! Also, thanks for the positive comment re: the authenticity of the toy being vintage, much appreciated.

    FYI - The cassette case has Takara inscribed on it.

    It wasn't intended to derail your thread bud. You wasn't sure and I answered. And Im sorry I meant to add box. I looked at the toy and knew it was original but not the box. When I realized what I wrote I forgot to edit. No reason to get upset chief.
