    Would you guys buy this in pre-transformer Red and a clear translucent?

    Is this something that you'd be interested in?




    I'm not talking colors that make no sense either like green, pink, white, tan, etc ... I hate it when that happens.

    I would be a heck of alot more interested if whoever's doing these could get the price down to $50 if not $40. Just to provide some perspective, I ordered six of Encore Ironhide/Ratchet figures at $35 but the chance of me getting another $70 Mirage is somewhere between slim and none.

    ah, gotcha.

    from my understanding, import fees and taxes cost a grip for those who stock these in the states, so there's a natural markup there.

    These will go down in price if they can make more use of the mold.




    Does anyone have any info on the red mirage? Am I going nuts? I could swear this exists but board / Google searching is leaving me hanging.

    The red Diaclone Mirage was... part of a Diaclone giftset, I think one with Powered Convoy. That might help your search (I can't remember every TF detail on the fly, ya know :)  ).

    Yes, most definitely. I'd love a red one. And, like I've stated in many threads, a freakin diaclone-colored Bluestreak please. Even if it's an e-hobby exclusive, I don't give a damn, I just want one where I don't have to break the bank to get it. Surely Takara-Tomy knows that people want this.

    It would be great if this was possible, I have spoken to a few of the ko markers about making some thing I would like but the quantity that you have to order is to much for one person to fork out all at once. Id love a red mirage.

    I'd be all over it, but not at the price they're asking. I'd totally buy one at $30-$40, easy.

    I'd be all over a clear one...and I've always thought a black one would be cool...I wouldn't buy a red one though :p

    I'd be all over a claer one...and I've always thought a black one would be cool...I wouldn't buy a red one though :p 

    Personally I'd rather they put out a Blue Swoop (and a unreleased G2 color Swoop!)

    It sounds like a good idea, especially the red one, but I will be honest and say that I am not interested in either. However, if someone where to make a ko Wheeljack and then release him in the Diaclone Marlboro colors with the Diaclone Marlboro head, I would buy one of each.

    i'd be all over a red diaclone one, and i love the novelty of a clear one too. that one makes much more sense than the clear ko's we.ve seen of primes and jazz and prowl.

    I'd love to have a red Mirage. Clear would be sweet as well.
