this is my personal best so far
Or classic series Daleks lol.
Bored lol. The Waruder experiment with some new designs... some of which MAY not work...
Then this happened
- "Let's show them, that while we may be small, we can make a big impact! Move out!"
Time for a flashback! I just finished building yet another Dart Loader (DA-13), I believe I own 9 of this version... It is pretty functional as a small set.
A DA-13 was the first Diaclone set I opened, assembled, and played with. It still remains near the top of my favorites. It is just a small tank/utility vehicle completely built from sprue cut construction that can be disassembled and used as bits and bobs, but I'm still partial to its basic design.
Thank you to my cousin, HeatherLynn Images by Heather Genini, for the background image from her photography.
I certainly regret waiting so long. The fact that it also came with a dianaut and a raid chamber should not be overlooked, quite the 'complete little package'. It also really compliments those Power Suits. I wanted to love the Gyrosceptor more, but it's a bit fiddly for my liking. I think both sets would really pop with some detail paintwork or a bit of a wash... but I figure that's a slippery slope. Kind of like what was pointed out with the missile bays/racks on DA-93.
These sets also not having a waruder equivalent still bothers me... the Ant Head would be a bit too big in comparison... but perhaps the 'tanker' or 'berserk' companion parts that came with Raptor and Bug Head (respectively).
Finally got a shipping notice for my lil Dia Guardian geezer set!! That's something to look forward to! And I assume his attachment points are still 3 or 4mm holes?
How to mobilise your Dia Guardion lol
bad compatibility with Versaulter stuff
Other then the TriVERS chassis being tight (causing chipping/wear) what else is not quite working?
Now mine is finally here I found a much lazier way to do it.
I also made this unholy merger of hard and I guess, soft Diaclone lol.
Made it a bit more super.
ports, Versaulter weapons need smaller ports and fist sizes.
I'll need to pull out Brave Maximus when mine shows up -- probably next month since I went through BBTS.
Oh man, i bet they’d look great with Maximus. Really hoping I can pick up some version of that original mold some day, love it’s base mode.
DA-XX: "We Have Big Powered At Home"
How far does BBTS typically lag behind the Japanese retailers on Reboot stuff?
About a month or so. They'll probably get DiaGuardion around the end of the month and charge me early February.
