    Hey,

    I'm looking for some background info on some Constructicon plastic model kits I've had for at least 15 years.

    All I do know for sure is seems pretty obvious they are not official Takara products. There's no dating or Takara signage on any of the packages or pieces that I can tell. I cannot read some of the writing on the boxes or instructions that might inform me where and when these were made. Each kit includes screws & springs & Devastaor body parts.

    K-1 is a yellow & blue Bonecrusher. Sticker sheet says Diaclone.

    K-2 is a blue Scavenger.

    K-5 is a blue Long Haul.

    Any further info anyone can provide would be of great interest to me. Thanks in advance for any thoughts you might on these oddities.

    Diaclone is what became Takara on the transformer side of things or something to that effect so they would be official.

    I think this Constructicons are some kinda knock off of diaclones.

    Not much help here but the language used on the box and instruction is Chinese. From what I gathered from google search there was no official Diaclone Construction Robo model kits
    ƒjƒbƒg￾[‚̃vƒ‰ƒ‚ƒfƒ‹ - page in Japanese - so these are unofficial, but perhaps only kits of those characters? Thank you for sharing, very interesting.
