    Okay, so....don't ask me why, but my friend and I have been on a Godfrey Ho ninja movie tear lately, devouring these awful, awful low budget 80's martial arts gaffs like a fat kid with a box of twinkies.

    While watching one of the recent flicks ("Ninja Terminator") I was shocked to see what appears to be an armless (and possibly bootleg) Omega Supreme acting as the Ninja messenger-bot!

    Also of note: Garfield Phone. Yes, ninja are not too good to use novelty cartoon character phones that their relatives misguidedly bought for them.

    I own that one. It's Spacetank Robo, though I believe there was another one like it.

    omegatron wasn't diaclone, but of the UK 'grandstand convertors' line.
    Omegatron
    there was also a Takara version which was called ┬┤tankrobo'.
    And the one in this movie is called mechatron-1 which is indeed the KO of a KO.

    check out the second picture of my collection, where you can see both.

    I don't think the fandom in general considers all pre-TF's to be "Diaclones". It's pretty well-known that Transformers was a composite of several toy lines from Japan.

    I only considered the G1 figures with cockpits and stuff for the miniature Diaclone action figures, to be real "Diaclones".
