    I got it right on the mark with the measurements a while back. It's small but with all the paint apps and extra features........

    I know. Just compare the size and its price range to that of their Hb mainline TFs.:eek: 

    I got the 1st ed release of Diabattles and my big complaint was that at least TT could have added some wheels under the fake tank treads. That was the deal breaker which made me order the Arcadia SDF-1 over Bigpowered.

    Man, I really like the rugged, utilitarian designs of the Diaclone reboot, sort of crossed with an almost Super Robot aesthetic.

    The issue is that the product is really, really expensive.

    I'd say the price is comparable to Bandai's chogokin line :D 

    it's 100% TakaraTomy project with a small run, so the price is understandable.
    The worse thing is that the after-market prices is even crazier

    I said it before, but I'll say it again, I would kill for a TF series with this style.

    Diaclone Reboot is only missing some animated fiction. And the pilots can be ignored / not used.
    The robots already have faces, so sentience is a non-issue

    While I wouldn't want it to become the total focus, I would be so happy if DA-65 was so successful Takara decides to adapt more of the Car Robots into this style. I'd kill for a Super Tuning Countach and Vanette in this line.

    just in case you’re curious, they’ve all had wheels after that initial Diabattles release. Big Powered rolls like a champ

    Another new video comparing box sizes and then some!



    Battle Convoy is looking like what Jobby calls a "big boi!"

    Unfortunately a recent-ish interview with the designer said they are not touching Real Type cars yet, still going with scifi style
    In a way, the TriVerse Tridasher is a car, of sort

    I prefer that, actually. Diaclone Reboot isn't about redoing all the cars and dinos, and is pretty awesome without the direct connections.

    Really impressed on how they've managed to redesign Battle Convoy to look so different from the original design that made Optimus Prime yet still retain the classic elements. I really hope that they're not afraid to tackle the Dinobots in their new take later on. I also would love to see how they'd tackle Powered Convoy.

    Well, I'm dumb and just preordered like $700 dollars worth of these things. The Convoy and the Triverse guys. I guess I don't get to complain about expensive toys anymore.
