    Between the images provided by @Vancelle and @foxracing you're likely covered already but if not i may have 2 to 4 other images that specifically show the cockpits open with a Dianaut seated. They aren't better than what's been shown already.

    I thought I had missed them too. I think I want at least 1-2 to play around with. I need to try looking for them...

    Oh, I'd actually appreciate any ideas on where to chase these up too, Show Z? TF-Direct?

    Anyone know the official name or designation numbers of the base? I didn't see it on TCP, but I could have overlooked it...

    Any estimate on when presells would open up?

    I've checked several sites... Looks like BBTS has the largest selection of in stock and open preorders for non-TF based 52 Toys merch, and $4 shipping. TF Source doesn't have a lot and it isn't "together", so you have to search for it exactly the right way; "52 Toys" brings up all kinds of TF stuff with their search, but "52 Toys BeastBox" (spacing is important there) will start off with the right stuff. TCP has a bit more, but like TFS, has $150 minimum for free shipping. (I'm hoping TCP as I moved all my Diaclone there so can bundle.) SZS has almost nothing non-TF related still available, not even preorders.
    Update: US Amazon.com has a ton of their merch for decent (compared to other sites) prices. I almost didn't look...

    They also have an official Aliexpress store.

    I'm very interested in that base set. Depending on how much each costs I may buy a bunch to build a base. As far as I know it would be the only proper 1/60 scale base set. Also, I assume you can connect as many as you want.

    Do note that the fit of the Takara Dianauts is very snug in those cockpits, almost like they were tailor-made for them. You may have difficulty putting RIHIO, Emonster or other 1/60 pilot figures in there just due to sculpting differences.

    As mentioned, 52toys has an official shop on Aliexpress that ships internationally and more importantly stock exclusive items, which this base or parts of it may be if they are not confident making it a mass retail item.

    They also have an official seller on Amazon Japan but their release schedule lag behind by a month or so.

    Thanks! I haven't used Ali in about a year. I used to use Ali a lot, but once most of Ali became resellers that never saw the merchandise and I started getting horrible customer service and sellers trying to scam, I quit even trying Ali... But if 52 Toys actually does their own shipping, instead of the dropship-warehouse style of core Ali, I may be willing to try again.

    Update: Ugg... Looks like you still can't filter by seller on Ali. Anyone that knows how on the app, please let me know.

    Here's how ya get to the 52Toys storefront on AliExpress:
    Search for 52Toys on the search bar, choose one of the listings with their logo in the picture, then select the storefront button.

    No problem. I really hope they list that Base Box soon, I'm really excited for those! Also, I can tell they'll look really good in your base setup as well.

    I had almost bought some of these BB sets before, AND they had a welcome discount and a coupon, so I caved and decided to try a couple of things... I don't think either is 1:60 specifically, but gives me a feel for them and that small radar can definitely be put to use in a photo or base somewhere.

    ...and, I should have remembered the storefront icon. There was one I used for a while, but I had an issue and they suddenly wouldn't respond. I tried to contact the company via social media and the company told me they didn't sell on Ali and that had been an imposter in mainland China, so they couldn't do anything about it. :(

    Hopefully this is okay here. It's a test print of something I'm working on. I started with a He-Man because that's what I had handy to scan in for a model. The plan is to get some more sci-fi or military style figues worked up. But this is a 28MM figure with ball-joint hips, swivel waist, swivel arms, and swivel neck. At this size, I didn't want to try making it hold weapons, so I'm going with two arm types - one holding weapons and one without. The problem with printing at this size is being able to see what's cleaned up and what's not. I thought I'd gotten all the support material off the arms and legs but can see in the picture that I have not. I do test printing in filament since it's less post-processing than resin to test technical features. (printed on a Bambu Labs A1 Mini with 2MM nozzle at .06 layer height. Model available on MakerWorld if anyone wants to download it to play with/modify)

    Manuifacturer: Bandai
    Toyline: 30 Minute Missions
    Toy: Baskyrotto
    Year: 2024 (?)
    Price: @$20 to $25

    I hoped that someone else would post about this 30 Minute Mission mecha. I've been looking at this specific unit for about 2 weeks now. Everything about it strikes me as being part of a "non aligned" or "independent" force in a universe threatened by ever evolving Kharn and the greater Waruder Empire.

    Seeing E. Monsters latest upgraded offerings makes me think this would be a nice companion piece along with those. Stylistically...they seem to compliment each other. Personally i could see 2 of the piloted Baskyrotto on guard duty at a facility and an E. Monster strike team heading out to intercept enemies.
