    Nice!! The “smokestacks” could also be set up like this:

    I love how so many parts on Diaclone are modular and can be reconfigured in so many ways!

    There’s a quick side-by-side in vehicle modes at the end of that video I posted right before your post. :D

    Sorry for reviving this thread, but...

    Can those little claw grabber things be lowered, or do they just slide side to side?

    Can the Dia-Nauts limbs be swapped to mix up the colors, as they look a bit monochromatic.

    Thanks.

    I'm trying to imagine V-Msx having any claw thingy, but I cannot.
    Do you have a picture?

    Yes you can, but be careful. Better to soak them in warm-ish water first before dismembering them,
    just to avoid any stress-mark(s)

    This looks more cybertronian then any of Hasbros crazy attempts . I like it as a “ pre earth OP “ . Makes total sense in my head .

    Hi all,

    Got mine as well, ordered additional Diaclone figures. My question is (and I can probably presume it's been asked/too lazy to read 20 pages)... but, would like to know if anyone is creating a replica G1 Prime gun for Battle Convoy?

    Thanks.

    They've done a Shadow redeco of most of the Triberse figures. So this is meant to match those.

    This Convoy Shadow does NOT come with the trailer, correct? But DA-65 did, yes?

    Thanks Dachande.

    Not to derail this thread, but a dad PSA: I think one of the coolest things about these diaclone releases are the modularity and interchangeable play pattern. That said, I can’t justify the cost for myself, let alone my kiddos. If you like modular builds, but want something a bit more military than lego, I highly recommend Snap Ships. The individual sets are cool, but start putting two or three together and it gets crazy. My kid loves them and I would have mowed so many lawns in the 80s if something like that were available. They aren’t a direct descendant of Diaclone, but they have some of its DNA in them. There is a cleverness to the play pattern and thought somebody on this thread might be interested.

    Hence the lower price point. Which is perfect for me cost wise. Plus the darker tone looks great!
