    Love that they did Spin out , Cordon and Tiger Track but I’m not buying these for my kids . Instead , I opted to convert their old classics toys that they already had in really ( pretty much still mint ) good condition of Sunstreaker , Sideswipe and Red Alert into these characters . Other than buying some toyhax labels of classics prowl and Sunstreaker ( which were cheap enough ) I didn't have to spend any more money on them . And I did very minimal painting too , which is the only way I would ever consider doing a custom ( either zero or very little painting being involved ) .

    Seige , earthrise , and kingdom stuff is by far the best Sunbow cartoon versions of those original characters ( Sideswipe, Sunstreaker, Red Alert ) . They are just perfect in my book but these old classics toys are still great toys with just as much articulation as the new stuff . So they really still do stand up quite nicely to the modern / newer stuff. Plus now these Diaclone characters, have unique dedicated molds to them . When possible I like to stay away from multiple purchases of the same mold , if I have a choice ( big exception to that is the seekers and the Vans ) . So these guys look similar but are 100 percent original / different molds from the main versions of these characters that people know . Anyways here is my boys set ( my daughter has a set too ) .

    I'm happy for people that wanted these guys and who now have the choice to buy them officially from Hasbro but I felt this was the best option for my kids, instead of just ditching these old toys that are still great , why not just re-purpose them into these Diaclone guys.

    My boy says this is his favorite Transformer . It’s an early Easter gift for him as I couldn’t hide it from him. The 2nd one is for my daughter .

    It is, one is for my boy and hopefully he will hand it down to his kids , the other one, I plan on giving to my Daughters Kids one day . But that is far off, my kids are not even teenagers yet LOL

    I always buy at least 2 of everything as I plan on handing down the stuff to my kids , kids. Right now I have almost two complete collections of the g1 cartoon continuity characters to hand down to them. Only missing Minerva and Blue Bacchus.

    LOL what ? sorry , no, just no, this is the right thread and place , going on for like 9 years now. which is longer than you have been a member here. Many moderators have been here and even commented over that 9 year period. Had it been in the wrong place, someone with authority, would have said something by now. This thread is about my boy becoming a new fan and growing up with Transformers.
