    I saw this at a yard sale today and have no idea if it is a Transformer or not. It is stamped by Takara. Anybody know?

    I highly doubt it, but I'm not an expert with Japanese/Takara stuff, so it could possibly be some obscure guy from Headmasters or something.

    This is what I saw when I saw this thread on the main boards page:

    Couldn't help but laugh at that.

    Anyway, no, that's not a Transformer.

    It's one of those weird Diaclones that seems to almost be a Microman toy too in it's design.

    Yep, originally the Diaclone Dia-attacker, if you found it at a US yard sale, chances are it was the Kronoform release of the same toy called "Attakron" or something.

    All the best

    Dia-Attacker reminds me a bit of the first Superion:
