    The Tri's are smaller than Diabattles so it seems a relatively safe bet they'll go for it. Wouldn't place bets on Giganter though.

    Huh, the visored pilot actually has a different chest sculpt.

    Is that Cosmo Manouver Diamond whatever it was called (that isn't made by MFT ) supposed to be getting a second run ?

    It doesn't seem to have turned up yet.

    Also did those Supermarket repacks of various MFT toys get sent somewhere you can actually buy them - other than a vague idea they came out in Malaysia and Australia - I just can't find them at all. Thought I'd ask in here for a change due to the cross interest in things like their Omega Supreme / Huge Dragon toy - which is one of the items to get a oddball repaint you can't find for some reason.

    (not my pics : they were saved from when the story broke)

    I just like the idea of the set up you could have with all 4 colours in base mode and diaclone struff around them... so I'd at least like to try to find out where these came out - South Asia somewhere - and places that print their packaging in English it seems - but some of them have other text on the boxes too -

    I find it strange as the anime-deco Dinobots on cards were something you could actually get if you wanted in China as was the set with the Diaclone stuff and the spider-man colour mini-mech - all be with some faffing about - but these I just can't find.

    Others repacked included a Megatron repack, an Ultra Magnus (version one) slight repaint, a Six Shot repaint. There is even suppose to be a repack of the oversize Iron Factory Starscream which wasn't even credited to MFT originally - but shares a packaging style anyway.

    The submarine looks cool, but not $40 cool...
    The quality of MFT KO's are good, with the big exception of the mini-figures (dianauts).
    Frankly, those KO dianauts are crap, their joints easily disconnect and even break apart.
    Takara-tomy original dianauts are much better built with better material and paint.

    Looks like the “VP” line from MFT gives us bits n pieces of big powered.

    It does look that way. Though, I’d much rather just have a straight up Big Powered KO.

    VP-02 is a modified Maneuver Suits though, not a Big Powered component.

    That has been my approach as well!

    Skywatch/EDC cops for me. Plus Diaclones and Transformers scale well for IDW fans; IDW Transformers are huge (Optimus and Megatron are 38’ and Bumblebee is around 22’)


    Wow this is amazing work! I love how great the Mechfans look with Transformers. Really gives it a “yeah the Transformers have been with us for decades” vibe to it. And of course the sense of sheer scale and literal world building potential is insane.

    Diaclone Big Powered GV, I'll show it by itself so you can see the pieces I used.

    Still a little bummed that the Sea Hunter doesn't really have any matching colored suits to share gear with. He seems a little left out. 20191112_152738.jpg

    Heads up folks... Pocket Titans mecha pilot pictures i put together from @woc20000 time lapse videos on Twitter. Yes..it is articulated (swivel shoulders , elbows, hips and knees at the very least. Possibly the head has a swivel or ball joint based upon a video i've seen). It's roughly 2.5cm tall so i'm going to assume it's Dianaut height which means we have a compatible 3rd faction (Waruders, Diaclone and these Pocket Titan pilots).
