    Have any of you that live outside of North America seen this product in the wild? I recall coming across across the orange diecast car in the past or one like it. The cavity behind the clear windscreen screams " 1/60 figure goes here!" and i'm a fan of the mini vehicle with figure theme.

    This is the type of simple toy i'd keep on my desk or in a desk drawer.

    Haven't seen that exact one but yes those are sold here, never looked that closely at them tbh as they're just off brand hot wheels.

    I was hoping you'd chime in.

    If you ever come across one and you have the time give the seating area a measure please. I'd love to see if a figure could be placed inside. At a glance it definitely seems like it.

    I fully support a Diaclone Racing League :D

    I support Funbie Studios on Patreon for their Transformers 3D printables. You can scale down some of the weapons for some add-on weaponry like missile pods. Default is 5mm. Scale down to 60% for 3mm pegs and 80% for 4mm pegs.

    I adore the Jaxa Rover in all of its forms so this is right up my alley. All terrain vehicles don't receive enough respect in my opinion when compared to their sexy sports car siblings.

    Much like the with the Diaclone DA-28 power suit ..... sometimes function is superior to style.

    Speaking of, bit more news on the AT-TE just appeared this morning.
    Pre-order up at a German site reveals it's fifty euros and coming in September.
    We get Captain Rex with it to boot! :D

    That's a good looking toy.

    I need to revisit the old posts regarding the Bad Batch micro galaxy squadron. Wrecker seems like decent customer fodder.

    The animated series has done its job....

    I did put in a back-order for a Kotobukiya HexaGear booster set 008 Insectoid legs, as I thought they might be a handy add-on for either the Waruders or for legs on a Diaclone transport of some sort..

    I love Bad Batch, favorite SW since original trilogy, but haven’t seen a deal on that set yet. And, I just realized I haven't added it to Keepa yet... so, that may be why; doing that after posting this. (I just want it for my small to play with selection of Emperial Star Wars sets...)

    I picked up a knock-off Versaulter (JJ-02) off Alibaba and it's really surprisingly nice for an all-plastic design.
    At the $23 shipped price-point, I'm absolutely gonna grab some more.

    Yep, I came from there originally. But my interest is in 1/60 stuff in general - I love the scale so much.
    Snap Ships, DiaKO, 52Toys, Forging Souls, etc. Lots of fiddly, buildy, diorama-display fun, with little pilots to scale.

    Oh... oh this is something.

    So.... a GI Joe / Transformers cross over movie is happening. If you have seen the Rise of The Beasts Transformers film then you know there are scenes where a Diaclone / Diatector like armor has been donned by a human character. Later in the film that human is recruited GI Joe organization which is already canon within the Transformers Universe thanks to Marissa Faireborn - daughter of GI Joe characters Flint and Lady Jaye - Marissa Faireborn - Transformers Wiki. Marissa Faireborn is an officer in the EDC - Earth Defense Command . - Earth Defense Command - Transformers Wiki

    So... if the character that donned Diaclone Cybertronian inspired / Diatector armor is a part of GI Joe in canon and GI Joe likely becomes or includes Earth Defense Command in canon (via Marissa Faireborn) then...

    Diaclone aka Earth Defense Force ..... *is GI JOE in canon*.

    Which means perhaps some 1/60 custom individual characters within your Dialcone ranks, inspired by GI Joe / Action Force, are warranted.

    Sorry for no posts. I'd planned to post more photos tomorrow, but as I left for work this morning I hit something metal laying on the street below my apartment building and it destroyed my rear passenger tire and rim, and just got back up to the building. Had to call off, and now facing at least a suspension, possibly fired. I got a new rim coming and tomorrow gonna get the spare on(weather has been cold and constant heavy rain all day), and the rim arrives Sunday, so hopefully Monday morning before afternoon work I can get this squared away, AND hopefully win't get fired.

    Just FYI - My local Walmart had SW:MGS Series 5 blindboxes in stock today. Nothing else was new from the line, but this did surprise me as we usually get stuff quite late. (They just sold out of series 3 last month.)

    I picked up one box and was quite thrilled to get a 'rare' chase set of a Shadow Speeder Bike with a Shadow Scout Trooper.

    As I have an almost all Emperial (or Clone Troopers I say are working for the Empire) force, this pull made me quite happy.

    Sorry, I know that's a lot of SW:MGS talk and these are closer to 1/72, but these have been frequently referred to above. (I have ended up putting these with my Snap Ships to build out an extended universe...)

    I absolutely share this sentiment. The idea of Bad Batch product is what made me take more than a passing glance at MGS product. In an age when many intellectual properties have moved away from their core identities and reason for appeal The Bad Batch has stayed the course.

    I haven't missed an episode yet and I don't consider myself a SW fan.

    I'm not knocking the current Micro Galaxy Squadron product as it is impressive and accomplishes its mission. However.... can you imagine If the figures were designed like other articulated 1/60 figures ?

    I might have become a full convert.
