    I love the Diaclone commercials.

    Powered Convoy, Train Robo, Construction robo, Triple Changers and the Dinobots are my favourites.

    Why couldnt Hasbro Grimlocks come fitted with Flamethrowers?

    Toy safety laws were looser back then than they are now, but they weren't that loose.

    Here's the Powered Convoy ad. This has always been one of my favorite Diaclone ads, too.

    Diaclone had wicked commercials.

    They couldn't do those in North America because it implied that the toys could move on their own. And also shoot flames.

    That would have violated the 'truth in advertising' regs.

    I've seen pretty much every Japanese Diaclone add on youtube.

    But hows about, an Italian one!


    Here's the jumpstarters.


    And the Diaclone combiner adds.
    Train robo
    Construction robo

    However the Microman Micro change adds are on the crack.

    well really, they could have just put the "toy does not actually move on its own, or shoot fire" text on the commercial in really small white print.

    With modern day Transformers though, even when the kid in the commercial transforms them, over here they have to put "Actual change time may vary".

    No chance of Diaclone type stuff. We even had to get rid of box-art because the under-10IQ people thought if a cartoon of the toy could do it, the plastic version could too. Right down to firing lasers. But a lot of parents over here (mostly the single-teen kind) are pretty f*****g stupid anyway.
