I am good with a pack of four. Searching for them now thank you!
By the looks of it, the company that makes the figures is "Tehnolog" (Технолог) and it has various lines including Robogear and Cyberon Planet:
TEHNOLOG.RU - Toys with stories - Продукция
TEHNOLOG.RU - Toys with stories - Где купить
ROBOGEAR.RU - Robogear Universe
By the way, where did you purchase your sets from?
^Ebay. I haven't seen them on Ali' thus far.
For $5 shipped it was worth the cost easily. At $10 shipped ...i'd need to have a specific reason for buying it but that's still not a bad price relative to other products in the toy and miniature gaming hobby.

And not a sign of DA-01 Moonbase version..
There's no sign of any of the Diaclone stuff, aside the MS-11 Babby Supremes.
That's because it's the Mechanic Toys release schedule not the MFT/DA schedule.
What is that G-02 fighter jet?
i really like the china glory and original ip stuff they're starting to put out. i hope they keep KOing diaclone but damn that new stuff looks good
yea, in my case, i actually prefer the new original stuff.
Sorry it took so long
thank you kindly!
Good God that's a nice picture.
I swear...Dianauts are low key the best thing to happen to the toy hobby in the last decade possibly.
I'm going to have to think about that but... Revoltech joints and Mega Construx figures are the only other things that come to mind. Every thing else in every other toy category (not including video games or virtual reality systems) doesn't strike me as being as ground breaking / game changing as those 3 items.
Megas are a whole other level above the other two you mention, imho. It took them a while of steady and incremental improvement; but they've made true 32nd-scale *action figures* in their own right. DiaNauts and LEGO figures are still basically accessories to the larger toys but Megas have grown beyond their brickplay origins (and would be well-served by dropping the bricks entirely in favor of more traditional vehicles and playsets, imho).
I've been championing Mega Bloks (Mega Construx) figures since the 1st release of the Call of Duty SEAL Team (actually before they were released) so i'll always appreciate what the 1/3x fully articulated micro action figure represents. I'd been waiting a decade for those figures. As you mentioned , however, the bricks (& brick compatibility) are holding the figures back. This is where i feel as though the Dianaut base figure starts to approach the Mega Construx figure in overall fun. I find myself exploring so many other corners of the toy hobby because of the pure scale of the Dianaut *and* its articulation. R/C. Papercraft. Vehicle building. Diorama creation. Doll making. Obscure shit lol. New articulation methods. Dianauts fit in virtually everything thus making everything a new toy.
An added bonus is you can actually add articulation to Dianauts (cheaply at that) if you're willing to put in the time.
Revoltech joints , much like how Dianauts made every item they fit in a new "toy" , made every static figure (i'm looking at YOU Gormiti) an action figure *and* gave a new range of poseability to many action figures.
It's a tough choice that really depends upon your taste but this is what i know..... i've been having some of the best toy times in a long time since i've been scratch building micro rc vehicles for Dianauts (single man vehicles & vehicles that can haul Powered Armor Suits). Building vehicles for Mega Construx figures was fun but it wasn't a sustained enjoyment like this. I wouldn't enjoy R/C without a 1 inch tall action figure with Dianaut level articulation. It's like Schapers Future Force Stompers made in 2020 instead of 1986.
If i'm being honest though...if Mattel created some non brick built single figure vehicles for the Mega figures i might find myself enjoying them to the same degree. As it stands they are phenomenal micro action figures.
I agree completely. I wish they'd drop the brick play and go to a 3mm post for foot pegs so the feet could be varied more.
It's like the Universe was listening....
THIS is what i mean. The guy is drilling and gluing magnets, making RC space rovers , creating diorama pieces for the crew, creating battery packs , connecting wires to circuit boards and more *all* because of the 3cm tiny pilots. The sheer scale of the figures changes everything.
You can do that with larger figures / vehicles but the space requirement makes it a challenge.
I own a Mega Construx Space Rover Expedition set.
I love it. If it was not brick based i'd love it more ...about on par with youtube guys creation above (or my own single Dianaut driver RC vehicles).
Interesting. As long as that J-20 is Diaclone compatible, I won't even care if it doesn't transform.
Kapow have the mammoth for preorder for 70.
