    This guy looks pretty cool. I may be down depending on price.

    I'm not familiar with the character, but I like how he reminds me of toys from my childhood.

    Preordered at TCP. It'll be nice to have something to go with my Diabattles sets as I wait for more from Takara.

    That's a big caveat for me. All this new Diaclone and Microman, and no abundance of vac metal. It's bothering me because I see it as a signature design element and a primary facet of the nostalgia I have for the original toys that fuels all of my desire for these revisits.

    Completely agree. It's like leaving "blue" off of Optimus or something, it's just missing a major style component. The best microman piece recently are the light-up micromen (not String Divers) from Sentinel. Improved arms totally nail the aesthetic. I love this but no vac metal takes it off the must list and moves it to the most likely.

    Anyone care to estimate the height of this guy? How tall is the Brainmaster in Star Saber? The big robot is maybe x5 the height?

    So small non-transforming Deluxe for $38? Not horrible. I would have paid more for a Voyager though.

    Me too. If Star Pilot were the same height at Spike from Warden/Guardian, I'd be content.

    Why? It's not Diaclone. In the original toy the driver was 3 3/4 inches tall.

    I'm very happy with the size of this, I love that it's tiny and compatible with Yuki and Diaclone.
