    300 is steep but he looks pretty damn cool. I'm glad they were able to make it recognizable while very distinct. You'd be hard pressed to call this Optimus when it's in a lineup of other Diaclones but single it out and theres little else it could be. Here's hoping for a powered convoy down the line

    I think you mean Zetar, Cromar is the Jet type Power Dasher, Zetar is Drill type and Aragon you can guess

    I have a pre-order in from day one. Looks amazing to me and I can't wait to get it.

    I couldn't swing that price myself. Too much for me to be comfortable. As cool as it is (and it's fucking cool), it's just a toy

    Too expensive? Mwahahahaha, maybe for American Casuals, this will probably sell hot in Japan and other eastern countries, I suspect this will be one of the best selling sets to date.

    Some things to consider, in my area, all of the big powered sets sold out, you'd be hard pressed to find a Big powered today same with Giganter and in my country they are both above $299

    Price wasn’t even a consideration, it was just an easy automatic order.

    as long as the quality stays the way it is and the designs stay excellent, I’ll buy whatever Diaclone stuff TT puts out.

    You should make your voice heard to Takara Tomy and whoever animates their commercials, do they have a Facebook group? Groups are a great way to get noticed, also commenting and sharing on their official FB page if they have one.

    I was thinking about starting a campaign for a Diaclone anime AND a Transformers anime made by TRIGGER(Unrelated to Diaclone but I still really want it, they're amazing animators and all of them love Transformers for some reason. Not just surface level fandom but they are deep.)

    So, I've got this guy on pre-order to be my Cybertronian Optimus Prime. Given that, I wonder how likely it might be for someone to make a Matrix that could fit in one of the Diaclone cockpits? Though realistically there may not be enough room.

    There should be plenty of room, pilots fit in the cockpits.

    There’ll likely be fan made replacement chests at the very least, we’ve already seen people sketching and designing replacement bullet cores. So I’m sure someone will upload something for 3D printing

    edit: also, Takara knows that a number of people buying this are from outside the Diaclone fandom, I could see them making their own chest cores that are more prime in design.
