    Pretty much what the topic says. With more incoming MP figures, who would like to have Diaclone colors released.

    I would love it if they went all out. Diaclone boxes and updated Diaclone drivers.

    Same people who'd like Classics released in diaclone colours.

    At these prices, I wouldn't. Maybe Sideswipe seeing as he is the cheapest, but that's as far as I'd go.

    Not me.

    I don't care for Diaclone figures, especially not any of the ones that have gotten MP Figures.

    Megatron would look worse, we got Starscream's Diaclone colors, Prime and Grimlock are the same... basically it would be some random redecos of Sideswipe (which would be... okay, but nothing I would pursue. At all), a Diaclone Ultra Magnus (which I simply find very ugly) and Soundwave getting CASSETTEMAN on his waist.

    Gotta disagree with you on Diaclone UM, I think those colors are really great. Also a yellow Sideswipe would be pretty amazing in my book.

    Also, I put this question because I know more figures are due to come out. So once we start seeing Bluestreak or hopefully sunstreaker, there will be a lot of nice redecos that we could see.

    I bet it will happen through eHobby too. They would have to do the awesome boxes though. That would be the topper. Same as the Grimlock MP Boxes. Those are awesome.

    New moulds first. Repaints later.

    Realistically I wouldn't buy them.

    But I would get more pleasure out of them than half of the odd MP repaints we've had.

    99% of the time I will say no with an exception to Diaclone UMagnus/Pre-Movie/Powered Convoy. I can almost guarantee that Ehobby will release him in this color if there's a MP UMagnus V2.

    With the amount of other 'Premium' toys TT are planning to throw at us, i'm gonna say no.

    If it was like the 'old days' then maybe, but there's a point at which people just say enough's enough.


    ...and for the 'No, new molds first!!' those come after a company recoups existing costs, and that includes repaints.

    No, I much rather see the effort put into doing figures like Shockwave or giving post G1 iconic figures the MP treatment instead.

    A diaclone black MP sideswipe would be great.

    That would probably be the only one that would interest me as well. I like those colors so much more than the Ultra Magnus colors.


    But others...? Maybe if there's a MP Sunstreaker I'd like to see the police version. Diaclone blue Bluestreak might also be nice, but already less so.

    Others...not really. Mostly because I already have most of the G1 e-hobby versions.

    Personally, I do not collect non screen characters so the Diaclone stuff does nothng for me but take up a spot.

    My unselfish opinion? It allows for another release on a premade mould which equals more profit which equals more budget for new figures. This is a good thing so for that reason I welcome them.

    I would be willing to do very bad things for a red MP Sunstreaker.
